A woman in Utah just gave birth to her 3rd consecutive Leap Year baby. She tied the record of a woman from Norway in the sixties. So that means 3 kids and you only have to have a birthday party every 4 years, right?

Cheapskates! smile

Not sure how they work out the statistics for this sort of occurrence, but it is quite amazing.

Quote:
David says it is up in the air if they will try to break the record four years from now.

"Right now the answer is obviously going to be no but you can't be sure," he said. "You never know if in four years we will be talking about it again."


London to a brick that there will be a fourth in 2016! smile

I would, but someone stole it... smile

That phrase was coined by an Australian racecaller, Ken Howard, in the 1940s, and has since entered the Australian language.
