And I thought we were the only ones! My dd, who is 2, loves Spongebob with a passion. She has only seen the cartoon maybe once or twice, and that is b/c I don't think it is exactly appropriate material for a toddler, but also b/c it scares her (she gets scared very easily by stuff on the tube- any type of action, heck, she's even scared of 2 Barney videos!).
But, I personally love the cartoon! I rarely get to see it but wish we had cable so I could tape it and watch it after dd goes to bed or something
AS far as them picking up on words, my dd is very good at listening and remembering words. I love to listen to the radio when we are int he car and dd has heard that Toby Keith song "Who's Your Daddy" one too many times I guess. Because yesterday she jumped up on my bed, put her face in mine and said "Who's yo Daddy?!" I had to leave the room
She alos likes to sing along to the radio, but doesn't always get the words right. Like we were listening to that old song by Dire Straits, it starts out "I want my MTV..." and dd is in the backseat singing "I want my tee-tee..."
Oh, one more thing on the Spongebob thing- I was trying to get dd to cut back on her nursing so I put up a "Nursie Chart" and told her she could nurse only at the times on the chart. Then we went to Wal-Mart and she picked out a SPongebob watch so she could "tell" if it were time to nurse or not. So everytime I told her she could nurse she would say "Spongebob said it's ok to nurse!", she was even saying it in her sleep!
