The new term shall be Leaple

I did some more research, and found that Leapling was a term made up by some 1992 baby's mom for her book. Ah, how existential.

I am gunning for the term Leaple. It's a French surname, but is not an English word. It is a contraction of Leap and People-our birthdays make us special, but we are just people. Leaple works for me! Here's to getting it in Wikipedia.

I like it. Sign up at Wikipedia and enter it. Really easy to do. Someone might edit you out, but you never know.
Happy Birthday Leaple!

I already did. I have four years to use the term incessantly.

Determined....!

You go, Bets!!!

Sure sounds better than "leaper" (mentioned here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year)

Happy Belated Birthday to the new founder of the Leaples! Maybe it could even be an optional extra surname for the select few. hope your day was wonderful!
