Travel Opens Doors – and Eyes

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Don’t ask my daughter; as of now, we’ve sheltered denied her knowing that sponge.

in fact, after several days at the Nickelodeon Hotel (read more about our stay here), she’s none the wiser to the underwater creatures. She did, however, meet Dora, Diego and a couple of her favorite Wonder Pets.

As for Sponge Bob, we’ve kept her from knowing him not only because we try to limit her TV exposure, but we also try to keep things age appropriate. Of course, travel — whether it’s across town or across the country — can teach kids all kinds of thing, including those that you might not want them to know.

On the other hand, it’s also a way to expose her to new sights, sounds, tastes, cultures and adventures that you just can’t find at home — or on TV. I just wish this time it wouldn’t include that sponge.
