12 days

Last weekend, we spent a lot of time in the car going back and forth between home and MR. We were driving on Saturday when Aves asked me, out of the blue, to sing “Last Christmas’. I guessed it was the George Michael song and started singing accordingly. The kids were singing along with me and we had a little chorus going. Then Aves started to sing, “Last Christmas, my true love gave to me…”. OK, apparently I was singing the wrong song!

I started to sing the 12 days of Christmas as I hopped on my iPhone and tried to quickly google what came after the 7th day (I couldn’t remember!). I managed to find it just as I got to day 8 (I strategically slowed down the tempo as I went along) and went through all 12 verses. Aves asked me to sing it again. Over the next week, Aves kept asking me to sing the 12 days. I think I sang it, at most, a dozen times. Aves must have been absorbed because this was the video she wanted to do on Friday for Nana, Grammy and Auntie DD.
