Now can you guess the state?


  1. 26 states--however creatively spelled--is still pretty good! There was a song we had to learn in 2nd or 3rd grade that was all the states in alphabetical order. "Fifty Nifty United States," and it's actually on YouTube. I'll forewarn you that the song sticks in your head. I always get messed up with all the M's, but otherwise I still remember it years later.

  2. Melinda, I need help! I'm trying to potty train Mason. It's not going the way I want it to! Do you have any tips for me?
    PS Fifty Nifty United States is a really cute song!
