Leap Christmas

Laying in bed with my little one, reflecting on our day, I realized I hadn't told her it was leap day. So I tell her how it's a special day because it doesn't happen every year, only once every four years, and we get an extra day...

She thinks on that for half a second, then her whole body stiffens and her face twists with excitement, and she exclaims with such hopeful exuberance, "Please tell me it's The Christmas!"

...if only sweet girl. God, I love these kids!
