I just curious does anyone have a child born on February 29th? Or have a birthday on this day? My first child was due the 15th of Feb. and I had her on the 29th.... She will be 24/6 this year. She said she feels so special....LOL....We told her she had to be 84 before she could legally drink,64 before she could get her license. and she believed us until she got old enough to know better....LOL

LOL. Yep. that is my niece LOL. She only has a birthday once every few years. She should be able to claim herself as a dependent on taxes LOL. She is an adult and a child all in one right now. She can be old or young, her choice of the age at the time. Must be nice.

How do you celebrate her birthday? I guess it would be on the 28th. I think that is so neat but I guess a little confusing at the same time

Thats okay....It was confusing for her when she was a child. She says people argue with her about the date on her license. Feb. doesn't have 29 days.....LOL

I did a discussion a few days ago asking if anyone was born on a leap year or if they knew someone who was. Not many people knew anybody who was. That is really cool. Does she celebrate on the non leap years on the 28th, or the first of March?

I had a friend in my school days whose birthday was 29th Feb and she celebrated it with real show off. India's 5th Prime Minister Shri. Morarji Desai was born on 29th February 1986.

Children born on 29th Feb would celebrate be 4 times younger than that of others. Even at the age of 100, they would be just 25 years young. They can very well plan and celebrate their birthdays. They would have all the new friends every time they do so. Expenses would also be less.

i was just thinking of the the other day, how this is leap year. And how people born on the 29th of February are shorted. But I guess as long as one can find humor in it, it's the best wayb to handle it like your family does with your daughter.
