Mum Colour-Codes Her Triplets

Mum colour-codes her four-year-old triplets

It's the question mums and dads of multiples must get asked over and over: how do you tell them apart?

Well Mandy Senior, mum to triplets Jack, Isaac and Josh, has devised a cunning way to work out which of her trio she is dealing with - she colour codes them.

Jack is decked out in red trousers, while Isaac sports blue and Josh rocks a vibrant green to help Mandy keep order - although, she admits, the boys do still like to keep her on her toes by swapping their trews!

It's not the first time the canny mum has used colour to work out who's who either - Mandy tells the Scottish Record that when the now four-year-olds were babies she would paint their toenails to differentiate them!
