“Ma Ma? I found your website!” squeals my 3 year old with pure delight. I look up from my keyboard. It takes me a few minutes to process the following:
1) How does a 3 year old know the word “website”
2) How can a 3 year old find a website?
I look over at him puzzled and see that in his hand is a grubby piece of scrap paper (we seem to always be drowning in scrap paper). Tilting my head slightly, I realized that on the back of it is an old screen grab print out of Trekaroo several iterations old being waved excitedly in the air.
Our kids seem to have totally embraced everything about Trekaroo – begging to write reviews (Read: Review of San Francisco Zoo from our 5 year old), taking photos, taking care of our mascot kangaroo and playing poster child for our website.
Trekaroo has found its way into every aspect of our family life….down to the inbetween spaces of our piles of magazines and art supplies.
I have a new goal! That Trekaroo would become as much a household name in the lives of families across the country as it is in ours. One day, families won’t even think about planning a trip without first checking the inside scoop from other parents on Trekaroo.
Now….I just have to find more 3 year evangelists to spread the word.
