When you talk about your twins in the third person, you will find that you always refer to them in a particular order.
For example, if you have twin girls whose names are Mary and Beth, you may always talk about them as “Mary and Beth” and not “Beth and Mary”.
The pattern that you fall into will be natural and you may not even notice it at first.
The pattern may be the birth order of your twins or even based how the names sound together.
You’ll notice the pattern when you start to hear others refer to your twins with the opposite pattern.
Something will sound odd when you hear their names paired that way and then you’ll realize what it is: they didn’t use the same pattern you do.
