|The cult of cake.|
The piece serves as a cautionary tale to future parents, by pointing out the feckless cake inefficiency of leapless parents.
You see, my two were both born shortly before Thanksgiving. Each year by Christmas I am knackered, having sacrificed an entire season to the pillar of cake.
By contrast, Emily's twins were born on February 29th four years ago. Today they mark their first proper birthday in four years. That's right: four years, two kids, one cake.
So to all you full-term women out there: I suggest you aim for today should you ever want to have a cake-free moment again in your life.
And to everyone else: beware the leapophile!
