What do you do if your toddler wants to bring in a birthday treat but the class has nut, gluten and dairy allergies? You make marshmallow ducks, of course!

"Chinese people give every year an animal sign," I tried to explain. "You know how horoscopes use animals for some months? Well, for Chinese people it's every year."
"When is it the Year of the Unicorn?" Becky asked. "I love unicorns."
I shook my head. "I don't think there is a Year of the Unicorn."
Becky looked really disappointed so I tried to think of something.
"But maybe during leap year or something they have a Unicorn Day."
"Really? What do they do on Unicorn Day?"
"Um," I scrambled, because now I was completely lying, "they draw pictures of unicorns and hang them up. Sometimes there's a parade."
