About

Twinfamy LogoTwinfamy is the brainchild of John Pseudonymous, a stay-at-home trophy husband and father of boy-and-girl fraternal twins who were born in January 2011. Conceived while skydiving over Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride, they are the two greatest children to ever walk the earth, aside, of course, from Jesus Christ and Chuck Norris. For five years, John was a middle school English teacher, but these two phenomenal fruits of John’s loins are destined for greatness, and he and his wife knew they cannot be cared for by just anyone. Therefore, John respectfully turned down his seven-figure teaching position in order to fulfill this illustrious duty, starting in June 2011. While completely redefining the tired convention of a “SuperDad,” John will simultaneously be fully active in a Ph. D. program, writing the great American novel, and curing cancer if there is still time, thus embarking upon an adventure unprecedented in the parenting community. This is his story.

In addition to raising his children, John enjoys: spending quality time with the Mrs. (who exemplifies the term “soulmate”) in both clothed and unclothed scenarios; reading and writing (duh); listening to, writing, performing and recording music at levels that do not disrupt nap time; guerrilla filmmaking; following sports, as well as pretending to be a better athlete than his body permits; running with his children, dog, and wife in tow; tinkering with technology and throwing it against walls when it does not cooperate; patching up walls; building things while neglecting instruction manuals; experimental grilling; traveling places English is spoken fluently and/or creatively; trying to resist another round of Angry Birds; and attempting to make the world a better place than he found it.

Twinfamy is written before a live studio audience…of two.

      Thanks Jared. I’ve often heard 6-12 is rad. I lucked out manning the household right as they’re becoming more interactive. Pretty stoked to see all the little milestones, and then, of course, pretend they’re doing them for the first time when my wife comes home.

    This is hilarious! Great blog…. It can be done. I am on the Ph.D register and my husband is about to embark on a degree. They say it is the best time to do it when the kids are young! Good luck with it all.

      Thanks so much! Yeah, we figure it’s better when they’re young, too. That way we’re more available to be obnoxiously vocal at Little League games and wield documentary-grade equipment as dance recital paparazzi.

      Thanks so much! I doubt it’s that dubious, though. Readers of this blog have phenomenal taste, so by extension, their blogrolls are often chock full of awesome as well.

      WhatIMeant2Say is, thanks for reading and sharing. You rock. In fact… Yep. My socks just flew right off.

    This is something totally new and awesome! (But I think if my dad had raised me I would have been handed over to the authorities.) Love your blog and pictures, your humor is really unique and entertaining.

    Fantastic blog! You have some very funny posts about your adventures in being a stay-at-home dad for your twins. I did that for my twin daughters’ first year — it was a fabulous roller coaster ride of emotion! Now I wish I had maintained a blog for the time. But it would not have been nearly as funny as yours. Keep up the great work — and best of luck on having your story turned into Twinfamy the Book or HBO series! Who needs hot vampires, when you can see a dad juggling the needs of infant twins??

      But let me ask you this. What if the dad juggling the needs of infant twins…was also…a vampire?

      Just practicing my Hollywood pitch. I think it might need some work.

      Thanks so much for reading! Hope you stick around fo’ mo’.

    There is life after twins! My husband and I, along with our then 2-yr-old son, welcomed our fraternal twins – both girls – 29 years ago! It’s been a fun, rewarding and interesting ride. Enjoy the never-ending journey.

      I’m loving the Journey so far. My wife and I make a point to not “Stop Believin’.”

      Thanks so much for the encouragement. I’m sure we have some great stuff ahead and I’m looking forward to all of it. :)

      Thanks! You should probably do that, just to be safe. This blog contains information vital to everyone, and not reading it has been demonstrated to be a medically-proven symptom for lack of awesomeness.

      Think of the children.

    So glad I found your blog. Certainly gives me a giggle when I’ve just spent half the morning chipping dried weetabix, off the kitchen floor. I have 8 month, boy and girl twins, and a toddler so know exactly where you’re coming from.

    Can’t wait to read more, keep up the fab work!

    Fantastic blog! I am an older sister to twin siblings and have cared for twin boys in my career nannying and even though I could ‘give them back’ at the end of the day I completely relate. Makes me giggle and think ‘haha so true’ every time I read it!

    Great bio. I quibble with a sentence:

    “Conceived while skydiving over Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride, it is his belief that they are the two greatest children to ever walk the earth…”

    So. Precisely who, or indeed what, was conceived?

    a. The twins (they)
    b. The writer (his)
    c. His belief (it)

    Were I a grammar nazi, I would of course have to say c. But that of course is no way to express admiration.

    Oh boy. You just gave me a much needed chuckle today! I will so enjoy reading about your adventures. And I’m very selective. You and the twins must be special then. :-)

    i’ve been a stay at home dad so know how rewarding it can be, i also know how hard it can be at times. I take my hat of to every single dad and mum who raise a child alone. Family time is the best time .

    I always love hearing about families with lots of kids! Twins may be changeling but I’m sure well worth the time and effort you put into their lives. Keep up the good work!
