Twinisms is a word I coined to describe the funny things that my kids say. It started out with my oldest son, John who says ridiculous things all the time. Those were called Johnisms. I quickly realized that all four of my children say funny things so I started using the phrase ‘Twinism for the day.’ Originally this was just going to be those quotes. But then the quotes needed explanations so it became a blog.
I am not a writer, more of a venter. When you have two sets of twins you need to vent. That’s right, two sets of twins. The older kids are 14-year-old boy/girl twins and the younger set are 4-year-old fraternal boys. I did not expect to have two sets of twins. I (wrongly) assumed that the first set was a fluke and I would just have one baby the second time around. Life would be easy. As it turns out, I have babies in pairs. (That factory is now closed)
We are also an Army family so our life is in a near constant state of upheaval. We are currently stationed in Anchorage, Alaska. We have lots of adventures, not the least of which is looking out the window to see a 1,000 lb. moose hanging out in our backyard.
This is not a parenting blog. I would not suggest anyone take parenting advice from me. The only intention to provide a few laughs and share our little corner of the world with yours.
