SpongeBob Time

This weekend we went camping up near Bellingham, WA, at a place called Silver Lake and did the normal camping things. One interesting bit of family lore that has developed in our household is the use of SpongeBob Time. The kids have a tendency to constantly ask how long until we get somewhere. When we answer them, they still don't have a good concept of how long two and a half hours are. So we've gotten into the habit of converting time estimates into the number of SpongeBob episode equivalents it will take. That's something they can relate to a little easier.

How cute. I think it's becoming a universal habit for the youngesters to learn time in TV shows. And why not? It works!
