Samu, the Kindergartner, knew today was Leap Day. His older brother, the Air-Head, doesn't even know what year we're in, much less the day of the week. Forget explaining Leap year or Leap Day - I might as well teach him Latin.
For example, everyday for homework, he has to write his name and the date. I'll ask him what today is and no matter where we are in the month he says, "I don't know, the 9th?"
"No, we're further than that. Look on the calendar."
He checks the calendar and five minutes later he says, "Yeah, it's the 9th."
So forget the concept of Leap Year.
Ask him what date "The Avengers" movie is going to be released, however, and he'd probably include a countdown. What can I expect from a kid who eats a dry rice cake topped with dry seaweed?
|Don't clean your screen, that is rice cake on his cheek.|
