The 12 Days of Christmas: My Baby Gave to Me

There’s nothing like the holidays to make you wonder where the year went, and reflect on the good times gone by with a smile. As a mom of a baby (who’s somehow managed to become a toddler since I started writing here), I figured I’d have a little bit of fun with a holiday carol. Perhaps you can relate?
