In a woodcutter's cottage

And so for sixteen long years, the whereabouts of the princess remained a mystery. While deep in the forest, in a woodcutter's cottage, the good fairies carried out their well-laid plan. Living like mortals, they had reared the child as their own, and called her Briar Rose.
[we see Briar Rose humming as she opens an upstairs window, then she dusts the window sill]

On this, her sixteenth birthday, the three good fairies had planned a party and something extra-special - for a surprise.

That's it!
Of course.
lt's the only thing she can't understand
and won't expect.
(GlGGLlNG) Now, now,
now we'll have to plan it carefully.
Let's see. The woodcutter's cottage,
yes, yes, the abandoned one.
Of course, the King
and Queen will object.
But when we explain it's the only way...
(ECHOlNG) Explain what?
About the three peasant women
raising a foundling child
deep in the forest.
Oh, that's very nice of them.
Who are they?
Turn around.
Why, it's us!
-You mean, "we" us?
Take care of the baby?
FLORA: Why not?
FAUNA: Oh, l'd like that.
(STUTTERS) Well, yes,
but we'd have to feed it.
And wash it and dress it
and rock it to sleep. Oh, l'd love it.
You really think we can?
lf humans can do it, so can we.
And we'd have our magic to help us.
FAUNA: That's right.
No, no, no! No magic.
l'll take those wands right now.
Oh, better get rid of those wings, too.
You mean live like mortals?
For 16 years?
FLORA: Uh-huh.
Now, now, we don't know how.
We've never
done anything without magic.
And that's why Maleficent
will never suspect.
