I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

Population Control

It's no wonder people have less kids these days. Every house which *might* fit you all, you cannot even begin to afford, meat costs a horrendous amount, and any semblance of a social life costs a fortune. We went to the zoo today, and a 'family ticket' was $52.50! They classify a "family" as two adults and two children, and they charge an extra $5 for additional children. This is before we've eaten anything, drunk anything, or done any activities. That's what it costs just to get in the door. No wonder people have fewer kids these days - even if you wanted to have more, all you could do was live in your (small) rental unit eating a vegetarian diet and never seeing the light of day. It's beginning to feel like having three kids is some sort of social crime, with the punishment being financial ruin.
