Two of my kids are of the age where Dora the Explorer was a favourite in the household during their early years. The younger of the two was quite smitten with the show and damn near started speaking Spanish prior to her native English. I don’t speak Spanish! Nevertheless, I never really had an issue with it as it was far better than some of the abhorrent children’s programming of the day. I was always confused about the creepy monkey that was always talking to her though.
Apparently, Dora is growing up. She’s no longer content with just exploring the world and teaching cracker kids a different language. We’re all going to be speaking Spanish soon people because Dora wants to exploring our dreams.
I’m going to be having Backpack nightmares for a week.
