You know the song The Twelve Days of Christmas? You know, partridge in a pear tree, geese a-laying, all that?

I was thinking we could do our own thing here, The Twelve Days of L-AMP (or you could name it whatever you want, 12 Days of Parenting, 12 Days of (insert your name here), 12 Days of Natural Birth, whatever!)

I mean, really, who can actually remember all the words? Is it 10 ladies dancing or 11? And are French hens really that much better than American ones? LOL

So... Post here what your "true love" would give to you on the 12th day of _____ !
