An odd twin moment

I've never seen much evidence of my boys being psychically linked. No crying when the other bumps his head, or completing each other's sentences.

But then we went to the doctor's office yesterday, and I learned you gotta watch out for these two!

Their doctor asked them, "what is your little brother going to be named?"

There was a pause, and then they both said in unison, with much certainty, "ZINK-O!"

We've never mentioned this name. They've never called the baby Zink-o before to me...they always just call him "Baby".

The doctor looked at me and said, "Really?" She did a great job keeping her voice neutral, with no sign of disapproval for what would obviously be a crazy name. But they'd clearly convinced her with their certainty, not to mention the fact that they BOTH said it at the same time.

I just couldn't stop laughing!

And for the record, while we're still struggling with a name, we did let the boys know there's zero chance of a little brother Zink-o.

You do know the boys are going to call their little brother "Zink-o" no matter what name you choose, right?

So funny that they must have worked it out together! Well, at least Zinko is a bit better than baby?

That's funny! The boys should call their brother that anyway as a pet name. If you have two older brothers, you're going to have to learn fast to grow some thick skin!

You could go with the classy Pachinko, and use Zink-o as a nick name!

Actually, it has kind of a ring to it....

The boy's name for the girl was "Abie Ceedy" (ABCD). Sometimes we still call the girl "Abie".
