Identical brothers and you’ll find

They laugh alike, they walk alike, At times they even talk alike —

You can lose your mind,

When brothers are two of a kind.

124.6 points to the first person who can correctly identify who’s who AND the sitcom theme song from which I remixed the lyrics. (Maybe I’ll even dig up a REAL prize!)

    The lyrics you wrote have now stuck in my head so I thought I would shed my lurker status for a moment and comment. My guess is The Patty Duke Show (with Clark on the left and Brooks on the Right) 🙂

    BTW, as someone who was told at 14 that she had PCOS and would probably never have kids your blog is something that really inspires hope. I am really thankful that you are sharing your story.

  2. Kirsten says:

    The Patty Duke show! I think the one on the left is Brooks, and the other is Clark? I really enjoy this blog! You guys look like you have a handful of fun here.

    Enjoy all the moments cause life will speed by quickly!! I have two boys, now 14 and 21. However, your blog takes me back to when they were wee ones 😉 Thank you!

  6. So Brooks and Clark are identical and Isaac is from another egg and Henry is from a third one? Sorry if I’m asking stupid questions 🙂
    They’re cute little guys, my favourite is the video with “Ring around the rosies”

  7. Nanny Debbie says:

    I think Clark is on the left and Brooks on the right, right ?
    I don’t think I have ever commented before but I just had to say that I LOVE reading your blog, I work with children and am about to start my training as a pediatric nurse so I find your blog fascinating but also i have PCOS and dream of having a big family so your blog not only keeps me entertained but give me a huge amount of hope.

    Brooks and Clark? (I cheated and looked at their photos on your header!)

  9. Lindsay says:

    I have no idea about the song..but man that contest is close 🙂

    Brooks is on the right….the show is The Patty Duke Show

  11. Kelly says:

    I will guess Brooks and Henry.
    I found your blog through Suz.

  12. I actually WATCHED the Patty Duke show, and it was WAAAY before my time. Gotta love reruns…

  13. KS Dallas says:

    I, too, loved Patty Duke reruns. Fun show. I am going to go with Clark on the left and Brooks on the right. To be honest though, after reading your blog for quite some time now – I am just now starting to tell any of them apart. They are all handsome little men! You are going to have to beat the girls off with sticks in 10 years!

  14. KS Dallas says:

    P.S. – I just voted and 4tunate is in the lead by just over 200 votes. WOO HOO! Keep voting everyone!!


  15. Molly says:

    Okay, I’ve never seen the Patty Duke show, but now I’ll have to see if I can find it on the internet just to hear the theme song.

    I’m a new reader. I discovered your blog when I voted for the competition a couple of days ago…after reading a few posts, I added a vote for you! I’ll vote again as soon as publish this comment.

  16. Hestermania! says:

    that’s brooks and clarke and the song is from the patty duke show! i loved that show when i was little – granted, i am 28 and watched it on nick at night, not when it was originally running 😉

  17. becky says:

    clark on the left, brooks on the right?? and the patty duke show!

  18. Rachael says:

    i was just planning a post for my readers to guess who is who between my girls! so funny that you posted this today 🙂

  19. Rachael says:

    i just voted and wanted to let you know that you are in the lead!!! yay!

  20. Heather says:

    I LOVE that theme show song [and show]! Great photo – your boys are always the cutest! Hooray for contests – hope it’s as fun for you as I’m sure it will be for your readers [I just love seeing their pictures each day]!

    Hi Jen,

    Faithful follower, I’m getting everyone I know to vote, but the Website is sloooow. I wonder if anything’s wrong with the site? Took me 5 tries last evening.
    Good Luck! You deserve it.

  22. Sariah says:

    Brooks on the left and Clark on the right? Patty Duke Show.

    On another note, it looks like you’ve won the weblog award!! Congrats!

  23. Fulton Quads says:

    YAY! Looks like you won!
    love, Cathy & the quads

  24. Alison says:

    🙂 Saw the parenting blog results. I voted for you every day…love reading your updates. As a full time nanny to 3 and 4 month old boys, it’s a treat to come home from work and read what you guys have been up to! Cheers!

  25. Jac Tubre says:

    Woohoo…you won! I knew you would 🙂 You so deserve it.

    My guess is Brooks left and Clark right…right?


  26. Congrats Mama! You won!


  27. Karyn says:

    This is my first visit to your blog. I am a long time Looky daddy reader, and just popped over here to see who had beaten him for best parenting blog.

    I just wanted to tell you that your boys are absolutely gorgeous! What sweethearts they are. Your life must be hectic from the second you wake up to the second you go to sleep, but it looks like there is a lot of love and fun along with the busy.

    Congrats on your win and on your beautiful family!

  28. RuthMarie says:

    Been a lurker for a while, but had to come out for this. Definitely The Patty Duke Show and I’m fairly certain it’s Brooks on the right and Clark on the left. I so enjoy following you on your journey. I have a little Isaac myself who will be 2 on Feb 25th. He’s our only child (so far) and I so appreciate what a wonderful Mom you are to 4 little boys the same age as my one!! Praying for you and your family!

  29. tyra says:

    I’ve been reading you for a long time now, and I’m just starting to be able to tell your boys apart now. They’re just too cute!
    I’ve been voting religiously for you, and congrats on the win!

  30. Quad Squad! says:

    Sweet! The Patty Duke Show! I would have sworn I was the only person under the age of 40 who even knew that show existed!

  31. Anonymous says:

    Looking at the picture I say that’s Clark on the left and Brooks on the right! And Patty Duke lyrics!

    Congrats on winning! What is your prize, or do you know that yet?? Just curious.

    Your a great inspiration and deserve it !!


  33. Kritter Krit says:

    Congrats on your “unofficial” win! =)

  34. Can I still guess?

    Clark on the left, Brooks on the right.

  35. Oh, and no idea on the sitcom!

  36. lynne from uk says:

    I think Brooks is on the left and Clark on the right but I’m probably wrong! And I have no idea about the song but then I am British! Best wishes to you all.

  37. Voting, voting, voting!!!

    I won’t guess on the sitcom and the boys, since my guesses have already been taken several times, but super cute contest, Jen!

    xoxo, Veronica in CA

  38. P.S. Jen, do you win anything besides the super cool recognition and getting your blog exposed even more??? I am so curious.


  39. Brandi says:

    I thought you had a set of ID in the mix, but everyone kept telling me no. Can’t remember who is who though.

  40. Moni Graf says:

    Yay, Jen! Congrats on the big, unofficial win! It couldn’t have gone to a better set of parents.

    Love you,

  41. Brian says:

    Indeed, congratulations are in order. Good show. I have no doubt that the totals will be ratified as legit and you will be crowned the victor. I should have known not to go toe-to-toe with a mom of quadruplets. Heck, my wife only had twins and I wouldn’t compete against her for even the tiniest crumb of a prize.

    Good job and congratulations.

  42. Jodi says:

    I just checked to see the status of the final votes – I am SO excited. You really deserve it, I voted for you often 🙂 I know the “final” results have not yet been posted but CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  43. Liz says:

    I say, Clark on the left, Brooks on the right and the show is “Don’t Eat the Daisies”-I think….

  44. I am not writing about the contest but about another question. I found your blog threw the Steece’s and love reading it. I was wondering since the boys love books so much which ones do you recommend for a 17 month old. My daughter does not sit still long enough to listen so please if you do not mind help me out.
    Thank you

  45. Cyndy says:

    I think it sounds like the song from “The Facts of Life”

  46. Maureen says:

    I sooooo hope you guys win – I absolutely love your blog. Jen, you certainly have a flair for writing! If you did indeed win, this should land you a TV show!

  47. Worlds worst friend here 😉
    Congrats woman! You are for sure the most deserving!! I know you are parents i GREATLY look up to!
    I had every intension of putting up a VOTE FOR 4TUNATE post and didnt. I guess with the birthday, getting sick, brother sick, etc, i let it fall through the cracks. I AM SO SORRY!! But just know, the thought was there 🙂

  48. debi9kids says:

    WOOHOO! So glad you won!!!! Very exciting!
    Well, looks like they have the show figured out and I have no clue which boy is which… I just know they are gorgeous!

  49. Stacey says:

    Congrats Jen, You guys are awsome and I love reading your blog.

  50. Kelly says:

    Brooks left, Clark right. “The Patty Duke Show.” But they were identical COUSINS! LOL

  51. Congrats on winning the Weblog Award. Good for you!
