    Everything's better in stereo

    Wife and I are expecting little Kexo and little Kexie sometime in early May. A drummer and a guitar player! They're identical...dunno the sex yet. Time to bolt down the HT.

    Wow, that is great news! My father was an identical twin, I have an identical twin, and I had identical twins. How about that!

    Twins are pretty special IMO. Congrats on your great news!

    Ahem....

    Ahem ah say.....

    As a twin (fraternal there's not two of me floatin' around ask my twis sister Denise) I've some requests/advice for ya.

    1. Don't dress them alike, This is silly causes confusion and is kinda creepy.

    2. Don't name em alike. Shawn and Shane???? Nah... Causes confusion and is kinda creepy.

    3. Separate cribs!!! My sister kept trying to kill me as an infant!

    4. Did I mention don't dress them alike? Particularly NOT in the family X-Mas card.

    Please as a twin give em a break.

    Worf

    Thanks for the kind words folks. We were a bit surprised to learn it would be twins. Never expected that at all. Then we learned a month ago or so that my wife's family has a history that skips a generation - except it skipped two last time when not much procreating happend during the wars, so not many survivors left to pass that info along. Her grandmother named off a half a dozen pairs though so I guess there's something to that whole genetics thing.

    Worf, your list basically comprises the 10 demandments my wife sent to all our families - no identical gifts, outfits, anything. And yeah, we're getting separate cribs. Tried to get one black, one white, but mom-to-be wasn't having that.

    Good luck with #3 Chubs, maybe I'll hit you and GM up for those fresh-in-the-memory bits of advice.

    Thanks bro, but I am an old pro now...it's you who needs luck!! Wipe from front to back, now there's some advice...

    No really, you won't need advice. It's incredible how much instinct is there when called upon, you'll be fine.

    Oh, one other bit....most definitely, 100% watch as the babies come out. Any misgivings that you think you might have will crumble away, believe me. Only then will you truly be witnessing a miracle. I cried like a baby, both times. More thrilling than a roller coaster too, I think it takes about a week for the adrenaline to pass...wild.

    Fantastic news! Congratulations Kex! There are many people I've met who make me cringe when they talk about procreating, but I think that two additional Kex's in the world can only make the world a better place. I'm truly happy for you and your wife.

    I don't have any twins in my family, but my husband has a friend who has seven kids in her family. Three sets of twins (all fraternal) and one single. We always felt sorry for the single (the friend is a twin).

    You'll be a great dad. My first tips: Stock up on memory for the camera. Get an extra battery for it.

    Congrats Kex, and Poppa C!

    I always thought if you wanted two kids, twins would be the best way. I know the workload is harder but they would both grow up at the same time.

    Cheers and good health.

    Hmmm....actually, this might be the best bit of advice so far!!! I don't have any headphones anymore and the last set were 15 year old Sennheisers. Can someone recommend me a decent, inexpensive set of Sennheisers or something I could convince someone to gift me with this Christmas?

    Quick story about names......

    Our first is named after an island in the Indian Ocean which raised a few eyebrows because people thought it was so unusual. When we were expecting our second people began to inquire what island this baby was going to be named after. I replied we found out it was twins and we were going to name them Greater Antilles and Lesser Antilles....got few more stares from those who really thought we were going to do that........
