This Land Is Your Land

To the tune of "Where is Thumbkin?"

 North America, South America
           all these lands
            are so grand!
          Africa and Asia
        Europe and Australia

and again and again and again and again and again and again and again...

This is the only song or thing, for that matter, that will calm Gus down. As soon as he hears this song, he immediately stops fussing and crying. Ava brought this little ditty home from school this fall and taught us the song here at home. Ava and Ruby were singing this 24/7 for about 2 weeks straight hence the reason Gus has latched on to this particular song. If you dare try switching up the song to, let's say, "Itsy Bitsy Spider" because your mouth wants to exercise other words be prepared for fits of rage and wailing for he does not like anything.but. Trust me.

So obviously this is Gus' baby song. Ava's was "Wheel's On the Bus"  and Ruby's was "Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star".  

I am relieved to say that I am glad they each had their own song as I don't know if I could of handled singing the same song for 3 years over and over and over and over and over and over....
