Mothers and fathers sometimes make a mistake when they say the names of their children. One mother in China will never make a mistake.

Sometimes she had a problem with the names of her sons. She has four sons. They are the same. They were born on one day. She shaved numbers into their hair. The numbers are the same as the time when they were born.

Interesting words: mistake (something not correct), were born (came to this world), shaved (cut).
