Hey congratulations man.
I'm a twin myself, and just a few tips I might point out that could help your kids in the long run:
- Don't dress them the same, allow them to deveolp their own persionalities.
- When they start school, try to get them into seperate classes, as then they can make their own friends etc... when I started school I often heard the kids saying things like "I dont know which one to be friends with so ill stay away from both of them" and in the long run I only started getting many friends when we changed classes, and it was even better when we went to different schools (although theres no need to go that far)
- Although if you seperate them at school and dress them differently, if they wish to be together, or dress the same when they're older, by all means let them. When they are young having a play-mate of the same age is ideal.
These may not apply to all sets of twins, but being seperated a bit let my brother and I get along better in life. We are both now 16.
Anything else you want to know just ask.
