FnkyTwn: I'm a father of 4 year old identical girls, and I always get the same questions:-How can you tell them apart?We don't dress them alike EVER, and they like different colours so it's easier, they have distinctive personalities that reveal them as soon as they open their mouths, and on top of all that, they look and carry themselves differently to their mom and me. That being said, we can't tell who's who in pictures unless we remember the outfits they wore that day, or we see the whole series of pics and eventually recognize a specific look. We painted the toes of one while they were babies, and we always put a specific one on the 'right side' in baby pics, cause her name starts with an R.-Do they have their own language?This is the sad one once you understand where it comes from. The "their own language" thing is a classic developmental speech delay, and thankfully it's treated that way these days. It basically boils down to "garbage in, garbage out", as twins tend to repeat incorrect pronunciations more than singletons, and they get less one-on-one facetime with parents, which lends itself to speech delays. They're usually caught up by the 1st grade. But if you ask twins if they have their own language their whole lives.. eventually they'll say 'yes' because they just assume that they do since everybody always asks. The reality is that they can't understand a goddamn thing each other says until they start using real words.-We call non-twin kids "Singletons".It seems a little racist (for lack of a better word) to me, but that's what twin parents do. Raising 3 or 4 individual siblings is not the same experience as twins unless they're maybe like 9 months apart, and the older child acts exactly like the younger one in every way. Raising boy-girl twins is also a very different experience, since they tend to like different things.-We always dress them differentlyThe #1 complaint from adult twins about being raised as twins is that their parents dressed them ...
