Are You A Leap Year Baby?

Yesterday, my 13yo asked me, "if someone is born on February 29, which only comes around during leap years, how do they celebrate their birthdays each year?"

I can't say that I've ever thought about it but now it's driving me nuts. So, if you were born on February 29, please share your answer with us. My husband thinks it's cool because you only age every four years :-o) He's a silly bird. It is kind of cool though, if you're an adult. However, if you're a child, I'm sure you don't think it's so great. I think it would be a neat excuse to throw a huge birthday bash every four years!

My friends boyfriend's birthday is feb. 29th. On non-leap years, they celebrate it the 28th. This year he's turning 8!

Anyway, I have something for you at VERB
