Leap Year Day

Tomorrow is Leap Year Day. Did you know that February 29th only happens once every four years?! So what’s so significant about it? For our family, nothing. Except one tradition that I’ve been set on starting with my kids and am determined to carry out until they are grown. My kids will get to have ice cream for breakfast tomorrow. Yes, that’s right. Ice Cream for breakfast! My kids will get ice cream for breakfast twice this year in fact. ¬†They get ice cream for breakfast on the first day of school and on Leap Year Day! I do not tell you this for parent cool points. Is there even such a thing and if so how do I attain more? Do tell!

I tell you this for simply that I think it’s important that each family creates their own traditions. I say no to a lot of things that other parents allow their kids to do. But ice cream for breakfast on the first day of school and on Leap Year Day is something that I share with my kids and my kids only. It’s one of the ways I feel the roots of our family growing down a little deeper into the soil. I’m pretty sure it’s something they’ll talk about with their own kids someday. What kind of traditions are you creating within your own family? Leap Year Day may be a great first start.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
