The Twelve Days of Christmas – With Kids!

We are so excited to have my sister and her family with us for the whole festive period this year and especially to be celebrating my little nephew’s first Christmas at our home.  I’m going to do my very best to make it a magical and memorable time for the kiddos and something special for us all to look back on. However, with three kids aged three and under, there are bound to be some not so magical moments!

Based on the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas song, here is how I foresee our Christmas going. Click through the slideshow below and remember to sing along!!

The final verse if you want to skip ahead:

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas my true loves gave to me

Twelve Great Big Cuddles

Eleven Sloppy Kisses

Ten “Mummy, I Love you”s

Nine “No! No! No! No!”s

Eight Books for Reading

Seven Songs a Singing

Six Baubles Broken


Four Nighttime Wakings

Three Toddlers Fighting

Two Outfit Changes


An Exploding Poopy Nappy!!

*For any non-British readers, a nappy is a diaper!
