My 6yr old: Mom do you know why we have leap year?
Me: No honey why?
Her: Because it actually takes 365 days 5 hours 45 minutes and 48 seconds to make a year. Takes a lil bit longer for the earth to go around the sun mom.
Me: Really? I never knew that.
Her: That's why every 4 years we just add those hours together and make an extra day. 6x4 is 24 mom.
Me: That's a really cool fact honey.
Math and science lesson all in one day. And she's pretty proud of herself for knowing something mom and big sister didn't know. Did you know?
