I have a 21 month old daughter and have custody of my 25 month old nephew. Since they are so close in age they have the "twin" mentality. I can't imaging throwing ANOTHER toddler in the mix!

NO NO NO NO NO!!! I have what is called "irish twins". They are only 10 months apart (ages 3 & 4) and I have a hard enough time trying to handle them. I could not imagine having triplets! Very scary thought!!!! LOL!

if i really have to, then possibly i could. as the saying goes, if there's a will, there's a way. at first, i may expereince difficulty but when i get the hang of it, then i might find a way on how to properly manage them. if i really can't, then i have to ask someone to help me. i'd rather pay than sacrifice any of my kids :)

I couldn't handle one child let alone triplets. No way, no way at all!!!! I never want to have children, and I don't plan to. My boyfriend and I have already discussed it, and we agree. He has children from a previous marriage, and they are enough for us to manage.

I think it would be really hard and you would have to rely on your friends for their help but the first year would be real stressful time .But to me i really wouldn`t like it as i think each child needs to have one on one contact with each parent but hey some people do do it and they have wonderful well adjusted children that do seem to be really close to each other

I could not imagine what it would be like with triplets, I have one child and it is hard enough with her, she seems to have taken over the whole house LOL, Hats off to those with triplets who can manage it!
