We don't know whether we're having two boys, two girls or boy/girl.
Molly and Huck from West Wing is one possibility grin
and obviously all gin- based combos also welcomed gringrin[gin]

So please list the twins you know - would be a massive help.
TIA

Robert+Charles
Molly+Grace
Cathy+Shelly

My dad+twin have same birthday as my cousin's boy twins, 70 yrs apart. How cool is that? I always thought I'd have Cassandra+Alexandra.

Welcome to Planet Mayhem. Hectically busy (worth every second), where you acquire an uncanny ability to spot a set of twins at 300 paces, the ability to feed/change nappies whilst having a micro-doze, and have your heart melted when your DTs proclaim that they are each other's best friends shortly after attempting to decapitate each other!

Congratulations thanks
