Overheard in Our Hotel Room

Ian: It’s my birthday.

Claudia: No, it’s MY birthday.



Me: YOU ARE TWINS! You have the SAME EXACT BIRTHDAY. Go to sleep!


It’s been a really long day.

They did quite well in the car for about six hours. I really can’t complain about that, but ever since we stopped they’ve been sort of nutty. Now they are cracking each other up. I’ll be honest, I don’t even know what they are talking about anymore. Maybe they do have a secret twin language after all.

It’s 9:17 and they are still wide awake. I guess I’m going to have to go lie down with them to get them to sleep.


(I’m still not clear on how to type sarcasm. You guys understood that I actually want to go to sleep, right?)

Oh, and thanks for rooting for Ohio State. I think it will help with my traffic situation in the morning.

  1. Yes… it’s clear.

    Love your blog… I have to admit that whenever I get overwhelmed, I just come read a post here. I can’t imagine having twins!!

  2. My twins are starting the whole birthday conversation, too. Ironically, Tanner is going to be 3 and Morgan 16…

    But they do understand it’s the same day. Just wait until they start arguing over who is older!

  3. I’ll cheer for them again because I hate every team in Florida…

  4. Those arguments always want to make me lose my mind. The fact that it’s happening between twins? That’s just fabulous.

  5. lmao

  6. I know you are asking yourself “What is Erika’s biggest problem with the internet?” Thanks for asking. It is the fact that there is no emoticon/smiley for sarcasm. A major failing, and I plan to talk to Al Gore about it.

  7. hahaha…that conversation between the twins cracked my ass up. too funny!

    Go OSU!

  8. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    I’ve been a Buckeye fan since I was in the womb (I have an EXCELLENT memory) and I find it gratifying to see nice people be so open about their obscene displays of bandwagon jumping. Hop on, Sarah. We’re equal opportunity offenders. You’ll fit right in.

    Also, I wonder if maybe you didn’t completely blow your kids’ minds with the SAME EXACT BIRTHDAY thing. Like maybe the pink one stares at the ceiling now trying to figure out how she could possibly have the same birthday as the kid who picks his nose and wipes it on her. “Does that mean we’re same person? Can he hear my thoughts? Maybe Kant was really on to something in his ‘Critique of Reason’. I need a beer.”

  9. yes I just LOVE road trips with twins… aren’t they so much fun?

  10. My twins have a birthday coming up and for the very first year EVER, they want to have different friends to their birthday party. They talk about how we have to sing happy birthday to my daughter first because she came out first. She is one minute older, but they are going with that to decide who we sing to first. I used to alternate, but they are insisting. Mine don’t have any secret kind of language other than the regular kid stuff of laughing at things I don’t find so funny. I love your post because it brings back memories of when mine were little (although at almost 7, mine are still pretty young).

  11. Ian is older, right?

  12. LOL at your kids! They are too funny.

  13. Seeing as I have completely lost what little was left of my mind…. feel free to ship the goon squad over here. I’ll return them when they are teenagers. They will be potty trained and able to help out with jobs around the house by then. Doesn’t that sound tempting?

    Mmmmm sarcasm should have it’s own typeface or emoticon.

  14. They’ll fight over anything, eh?

    That’s the funniest thing I’ve read in a while, thanks.

  15. Apropos of nothing, but I need to say that whenever I come here to read, I scroll down really fast to try to beat the laser eyes coming out of the giant kid. ‘Cause those eyes really freak me out.

    Just thought you would be amused to know that. mk

  16. Happy Birthday to both of them!

    Oh, and regarding one of your posts from a couple of days ago… I never to be done having issues. What’s up with that?

  17. HA! Happy birthday to Ian and Claudia! Have fun!!
