Same Time Next Year
Some news from Ohio. I know the Cottons had little choice in the matter, but that won't mean their children may grow up not liking that they have to share the same birthday. My mother and her sister(My Aunt Carol) were both born the same day also. They didn't get along all that well.

MARYSVILLE, Ohio - It won't take much for Jenna and William Cotton to remember the birthday of the newest member of their family.
Daughter Kayla was born Tuesday, which was Oct. 2 — the same date her brothers were born.
Ayden Cotton arrived on Oct. 2, 2003; Logan was born Oct. 2, 2006.
The parents said they had a feeling their baby daughter might come a couple of days past her Sept. 30 due date. Sure enough, Jenna Cotton, 23, began having contractions early Tuesday, hours before a planned birthday party for the boys.
She had a doctor's appointment scheduled later in the day and hung in for the party. Ayden, the 4-year-old, wanted to know if his new baby sister would make the festivities, Jenna Cotton said.
Kayla, at 7-pounds, 8-ounces, was born at 7:07 p.m. Tuesday.
The odds of a family having three children born on the same date in different years are about 7.5 in 1 million, said Bill Notz, a statistics professor at Ohio State University.
