When the holiday season comes, it’s only natural to assume that it’s going to be full of fun and joy with hardly any stress at all, right? Well, not if you’re a parent of a toddler.

This mom found a fun way to show what holidays are all about by twisting verses of 12 Days of Christmas.

“We are full swing into Christmas in this house,” Stephanie shares, “however my ever-growing tally of broken ornaments is a constant reminder that there is Christmas, and there is Christmas with kids. This is why I wanted to create a fun rendition of one of my favorite holiday songs.”

12 Days of a Toddler Christmas is for all the parents out there enjoying the thrill of candy cane sugar highs, and Santa Claus meltdowns,” she adds. Enjoy!
