Just a fluff thread, but pretty cool.<br>
Vaginal twin birth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br><a href="http://news.aol.com/article/michigan-twins-born-in-different-years/291959" target="_blank">http://news.aol.com/article/michigan...t-years/291959</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">They're twins, all right, despite what their spanking new birth certificates say. Tariq Griffin entered the world at 12:17 a.m. on New Year's Day at Crittenton Hospital in Rochester, Mich. Twin brother Tarrance was born a bit earlier — 26 minutes to be exact.</td>

That's cool. I have a friend who gave birth to twins on different days. But different years is awesome.<br><br>
I have to say though, if I am in labor dealing with contractions trying to push my second babe out the last thing I want to hear is a flipping countdown and a bunch of nurses yelling "Happy New Year!". Just the immediate visual I got in my head, I have no idea if the woman in the story birthed at home, the hospital or via c/s.

Pretty cool!<br><br>
I remember there was a story awhile back about twins where the second babe was born at an earlier time than the first due to setting back the clocks.

All the fun of being a twin but none of the birthday sharing, how cool!

whoa! That's pretty awesome...imagine if it had happened in 1999. Different centuries even (or not, since that seems up for debate, too...).

I think there's a story like this every year <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Pretty neat though. I bet the "older" twin will enjoy reminding his sibling that he was born in the prior year.

When I told DH about this and mentioned the tax deduction he started wondering how they're going to handle the insurance claims.

Wow, that is crazy. That's gotta be annoying explaining that to everyone.
