Shortly after I was born, I was put into a room to be monitored with other Leap Year babies. My dad was wandering around outside when a local journalist approached him. After asking if he was the father of a Leap Year baby, he asked if he could take a picture of him holding his son with the other babies in the background. My dad agreed, but then realized he wasn't sure which baby was his (one has to admit, babies do look quite similar). I'm sure there were name tags or something identifying babies in the room, but he must have been flustered and did not see them and finally picked up a baby. I wish I could say he chose right, but he didn't. My mom let him know afterwards that we was holding the wrong baby in the picture - which made the front page of the newspaper.
