13 Things That No Longer Gross You Out Once You Become a Parent

My Leap Year Baby

My due date was January 26 before the doctors changed it to February 13. So while we entertained the idea of a Valentine's baby, I never considered that my child would be born at the end of the month. But, life is full of surprises and my daughter made her much anticipated debut on February 29.

We decided that we would celebrate her birthday both days — February 28 and March 1. And, commemorate the occasion with a special trip on Leap Years. So today we are in Disneyland, a preschooler's paradise. And, entertaining options for her eight birthday. But one thing is certain, we will throw her a Sweet Sixteen when she turns 64.

There was a woman on the radio this morning talking about her baby's birthday was today, and he was one year old. Now, if I can count, February 29 only happens every four years, so her kid could not have been one year old and have a birthday of February 29. She was all ecstatic none the less.

I always wanted to have a leap year baby but never tried because i knew i would either go early or late and never have the baby on the 29th.

My birthday is the 28th and I always secretly hoped it would be on Leap Year instead (alas, I was born in an off year). So, too cool! Happy birthday! ;)
