2 kids born in the same year?

my kids always both cry for me at the same time... as soon as one sees the other getting attention he/she will start crying so they can get attention too... also they will fight over who gets to sit on mommys lap... which i dont get because i will let both of them sit on my lap at the same time and they will hit and kick each other fighting over me... its nice to know they love me so much but it gets annoying really quick... my daughter is oldest and she is finally over her terrible two's... now she just back talks me... my son is in his terrible 2's and throws the worst tantrums and never listens.. i've tried time outs and yelling, talking calmlly, even spanking... nothing works with him he just throws a bigger fit and starts trying to tear apart the house... sometimes i feel like im on my last straw... Good Luck Maggie!

My Little ones are about 11 months apart. Katarina born October 21, 2010 and Little Emily Born October 7, 2012. Im not there yet, but I know it will come. my 16 month old is going into her crazy 2's early it seems. Jumping, Climbing, Tantrum throwing. I am trying to be consistant with her and telling her no, ect.. Sometimes though it seems like she doesnt things on purpuse just to get a thank you out of me. I say, "Katarina You Dont Climb On The Chair!" Then she steps off and walks away from it. I usually say, "Thank You!" well she gets back on and I repeat myself. Then again, I dont say thank you and she thanks herself for getting off.
My biggest issue at the moment is deciding which child to give my attention to when they are both crying because they are tired, or they both need me for something. If one is fussy because they cant have a cookie and the other is crying cause she needs a bottle. Well its obvious who to go to, but when there both sleepy and want mommy to comfort them? :(
