Leapin’ Lambs!

Today is Leap Day, a day most rare, when leaping lambies fill the air
Their bleat is strong, their bounce is stronger, glad this year is one day longer


Every four years, or sometimes eight, we add a day so we’re not late
(We humans think Time’s so precise. It’s actually sloppy, ain’t that nice?)


So sing and dance! Kick up your heels! Eat all the food! Feel all the feels!
Do the things that you love best, for this day’s rarer than the rest.

    They’re not in blue and yellow, but I approve the leaping.

    The Google doodle for today is cute leaping bunnies! Apparently everyone associates leaping with fuzzy anipals.

    Leap year is so much cuter than the French, “année bissextile” which comes form the Latin bis-sextilis, two “sixth” days before first calends of March in the Roman calendar. ‎Yawn …. Give me leaping lamb any day over boring Latin.

    So that’s how they get into practice for jumping over fences to help people sleep!

    NTMTOM’s poem should be the official Leap Day anthem – love it!

    It’s good to be a lambie.
