Since when can't mothers refer to the twin that came first as the "oldest"? In fact, what if they are Irish twins and her children are 1 years old, 6 years 2 days old and 6 years 11 months and 4 days old? While the latter is unlikely, it is very common for a parent to refer to their children as older and younger even when they are twins.
