Acharne: A Shambling Mound: Ace, Blain, Cash and Dylan.

Just getting that out of the way.

I came to rage against this. I am leaving with raged. They totally could have found good musicians for A and B too.

Do you think the mom named one pair and the dad named the other?

They totally could have named the kids Aiden, Braden, Caiden, and Dayden... but they didn't, so in my mind, it's not *that* bad.

The Irresponsible Captain: Should have named them Proton, Neutron, Electron, and Positron.

Or name them after famous captains: Hook, Crunch, Kangaroo, Morgan.

Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta.

Then spend the rest of their lives listening to people say, "But that's not alphabetical..."

My wife and I have twin 18-month old daughters.  After a year and half the whole situation is just now becoming manageable.

Don't get me wrong - having twins is a special thing, and our kids are very happy, healthy, etc.  But it was also nearly impossible for either of us to go anywhere for the first year.  Imagine two babies who are hungry and want their bottle NOW.  I can't tell you how many times my wife went up to put our 5-year old to bed and came back downstairs to find me stuck on the couch with a baby in each arm holding a bottle to their mouth.

I remember opening the fridge one day while holding a stack of towels trying to figure out where they went because I was so exhausted.

Having 4 at the same time....well...I can't imagine.

Seriously - if you ever know someone who has twins - go out of your way to help them.  It is HARD.  I have helped make life and death decisions for other people (end of life care type stuff) and this is WAY, way harder.  The absolute best thing you can do is let them sleep. Stop by unannounced (preferably with help) and say "Go sleep for a couple hours - we got this" - and just watch their kids.

But, as they get older - built in playmate.  Tonight after dinner my wife played cards with our now 6-year old and I did up the dishes while the toddlers played with each other.  After that I played with them (several rounds of tickling, "airplane", chasing them around, etc...) and it was great fun.
