Bullseye in Teaching My Girls Their Place in This World, Literally

We are fortunate to live close to grandparents and cousins, and we frequently drive to visit them.  About a year ago when one child or another was being fussy and wondering "How long until we get there?!", I started calling out the names of the cities as we drove through them, hoping to give them a sense of where we were.  This has now become a tradition as we make that drive.  To help my girls remember each location, I also explained who lived in each city.

"We are now passing by the city of [B] where Grandma C and Grandpa L live."

"This is [F] where cousins L and B live."

"We're at Grandma E's and Grandpa R's town.  What is it called?"

There is one city that we pass where none of our family live.  So what did I do?

"Now we are in [C] where Target lives."
