Recently, my little family of 5 traveled up to Chicago, Illinois to see our darling nieces be baptized.
Yes, I said niec-es. Scott's brother and his wife also have identical twins of their own. What are the odds of that happening?
Apparently, not high. There is tons of research out there indicating that identical twins do not run in families. Instead, such genetic tendencies are reserved for fraternal twins and their hyperovulating moms. Speaking of which, I just learned that word - hyperovulating. It's kind of a fun word, no? It makes me want to go play tennis.
Anyways, apparently nobody sent the identical/fraternal genetics memo to Scott or his brother. Either that, or they both just completely disregarded years of genetic research in order to get a 2 for 1 deal. Or maybe, identical twins actually are genetic after all. Genetic on the guy's side of the family!
I wonder how that would work. If fraternal twins are caused by the mom's hyper-ovulation, then that must mean that identical twins are caused by the dad's hyper...
Never mind. I don't even want to google-image search for the picture that I have conjured up in my head.
Anyways, what was I talking about again? Ah yes, Chicago.
We had a lovely time.
