When I read my friend Aubrey’s blog this morning, I gasped! She blogged about my one true talent. On our second date, I showed Andrew my incredible talent by singing him the “50 Nifty United States Song”…yes, I remember learning this song in the 3rd grade and have carried it with me all of these years. When Kensington was only a few days old, I sang it to her for the first time, and now we sing it on a regular basis.
I know my mom and dad are beaming with pride because even though I didn’t become that rocket scientist or brain surgeon…I have retained my 50 states in alphabetical order (they have heard my lovely rendition a million times).
I couldn’t just leave Aubrey a comment on her blog, I had to share this on mine as well. It’s so nice to know that at least one of my other friends is dedicated to becoming that kind of mom who teaches their young child the 50 states in alphabetical order at an early age :). The song is just so darn catchy (and helpful as an adult)…I bet you’ll want to learn it too!
Aubrey…we are soul mates!
