Willmar, Minn., women celebrate 'real' birthday this year on leap day
When you only have a birthday once every four years, you learn to make it count.
At least, that's the motto that Tracey Erickson, a leap day baby, has adopted. On Feb. 29, she'll turn 12 -- or, technically, 48.
A speech and language clinician at Willmar Middle School, Erickson finds it "amusing" that this year, she'll be turning the same age as many of her students.
