Today (Oct 5, 2011) is the birthday of a friend of mine’s twin daughters.
For many years our two families were growing at about the same pace.
Here is a quick story of how evenly paced we grew our families.
My first daughter was born in early 1982.
His first daughter was born a few years later.
My wife had our next daughter around 1984.
His wife delivered another daughter within a year or so.
My wife and I had another daughter in around 1986.
My friend and his wife has another daughter soon thereafter.
Another daughter was born to my wife and I in 1988, bringing our daughter count to 4.
Within about 5 years twin daughters were born to my friend and his wife, bringing their daughter count to 5.
I cried uncle and threw in the towel. I actually went to see the man doctor at that time.
Happy birthday to Meggy & Mary the twins. Congrats to Francis & Mary for raising 5 beautiful women.
