Mom of Quadruplets Shaves Numbers Into Their Heads to Tell Them Apart
I have twin cousins that to this day I still can’t figure out which one is which. I can’t imagine how confusing it would be to try to remember quadruplets’ names!
A Chinese mother had a unique solution to that dilemma. She simply shaved numbers from 1 to 4 into her 6-year-old quadruplet’s heads. That way the kids’ teachers and fellow classmates could tell them apart.
“My sons are identical, even to me,” said Mum Tan Chaoyun of Shenzen in China’s Guangdong Province. “I could only tell the difference between them by having different ankle tags on them before they turned 18 months old.”
“Even now, their father can’t tell which one is which. Sometimes he punishes the second one for something the third one has done.”
If you had multiples, would you do something like this or simply dress them differently? Or what would be your method to helping folks identify your tikes?
