Today has got to be one of the worst days of my life. Let me start from the beginning.

After leaving McKinley I realized that I was in love with my best friend Rachel Berry. After contemplating how to ask her out, I plucked up the courage do so. In my opinion it was the best thing I could have done. I was the happiest man alive. Just over 2 years of being together I asked her to marry me. She said yes of course and we had a beautiful spring wedding out in the Berry’s backyard. I will remember that day for the rest of my life.

11 months after our wedding night I was the proud father of beautiful identical twin girls; McKenzie Jane and Lily Faith. The both of them were a handful but they are the best thing that has happened to me, apart from Rachel of course. At first Rachel had a hard time telling them apart but then the mother’s instinct which my mum constantly talked about kicked in.

Now back to the reason I was having the worst day of my life. Quinn; who was now married to Puck had decided to take my wife out for a bit of pampering. She hadn’t had a day to herself since the girls were born. She was reluctant at first but I finally convinced her, the girls would be fine with me. Boy I couldn’t have been more wrong.

~~~~~~~~~

Just after Rachel left the girls woke up. I got them up and dressed, in the clothes she had set out the night before, to make sure I knew who was who. All was going well; I had called Sam and asked him to come over for a while seeing as his wife Mercedes had gone with Quinn and Rachel. I had walked out of the room for a split second and when I came back the girls were covered in baby powder which I had left sitting on the table.

I ran them a bath and by the time Sam had got here they were all clean. Seeing as I undressed the girls for the bath (well obviously), I couldn’t remember which one was which. Sam had suggested I call Rachel and ask her how she tells them apart but seeing as it was her day off I didn’t want to bother her. So Sam and I are now sitting on the couch staring at the twins.

"Maybe we could take them into their room and they will go to their normal beds" Sam spoke up, making me jump. It sounded like a good idea, hopefully it would work. I grabbed McKenzie and Sam grabbed Lily; or was it the other way around, and took them into the room and put them on the floor. They both headed off in the direction of their beds that is until they spotted their toys in the corner of the room.

"Damn, almost" Sam chuckled. How could he be laughing at a time like this?

"It isn’t funny" I retorted, he nodded his head, still trying to hold back laughter. "What time did the girls say they would be back?" I asked, hoping it would stop his laughing. Sam looked at his watch and then back at me with a stricken look on his face.

"About half an hour" he replied. I looked at him then at the girls who were now playing with the dollies. This was going to be a disaster. I scrambled into the lounge room and grabbed a coin before running back into the bedroom, where Sam was watching the girls.

"Heads mean the one on the right is McKenzie, tails means she is Lily ok?" I asked. Sam held back his laugh and nodded his head, obviously afraid if he opened his mouth he wouldn’t be able to say much. I flipped the coin and it landed on heads. "Ok so she is McKenzie" I spoke, pointing at the one on the right.

"But what if they moved, after you flipped the coin" Sam questioned. I looked at him, he couldn’t be serious?

"Ok so maybe this wasn’t the most full proof thing, but what else could we do?" I sighed. Sam patted me on the back and looked at the girls.

"Just tell Rachel the truth" he smiled. I nodded in response it would be the only way that I could tell the girls apart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About 20 minutes later, Sam had left and the girls were dressed; one with a pink top, pink legging and a denim skirt and the other with a green top, green leggings and a denim skirt. Even though he had no idea which was which he was nearly one-hundred percent sure he had got their clothes right. He sat on the lounge waiting for Rachel to come home when it hit him. The twins were both staring at him, looking closely he noticed McKenzie had purple earrings and Lily had pink. He jumped up off the lounge and scoped the two girls into his arms, spinning them around in circles. He was so happy he had finally figured it out that he didn’t notice Rachel step through the front door.

"What are you so happy about?" she giggled, watching Finn with the twins.

"Oh nothing" he replied, putting the girls on the floor and engulfing her in a hug. "Sam just told me that the Giants won" he said, putting on his best fake smile. Rachel nodded, trying to contain her laughter but failed. "What?" he asked looking slightly offended.

"Just, you don’t care much for the Giants" she laughed as he began to pout. "So I guess you figured it out?" she asked. He looked at her smiling at him. God he loved this women so much.

"Figured out what?" he asked, challenging her.

"That the girls have different colored earrings" she said in her ‘I can’t believe you didn’t notice’ tone. Finn glanced at her and then at the twins before a small smile erupted on his face. As soon as Rachel saw it she ran with all her might. She knew this game all too well.
