Leap day--an extra day!

Filed under: Activities: Babies, In The News

As you probably know, 2008 is a leap year. That means this year we'll get an extra day on February 29th. Each leap day I try to do something special with what I consider extra time. After all, when do you normally get an extra day to get things done, take a break or have some fun?

A colleague of mine knows a little girl who proudly claims that even though she is six she's only had two birthdays. Her birthday is on the 29th. I guess she celebrates it on the day before or after when there is no leap day for the year.

This year I am hopeful to spend extra time with my son. He was not around last leap year. In fact, I don't know if I did anything of significance last leap year except acknowledge that there was an extra day. This year I'd like to do something different, something extra, with our new baby. He won't know it's leap day or year, of course, but perhaps he'll sense something special is in the air.

What about you? Do you treat leap day like a holiday and do something special, or is it just like any other day?
