3 x 3 = 9 kids!


On my morning off work here in the contemplative monastic community, I took a short walk into "the world."  In this case, that means the nearby little town.
I couldn't believe this sight: three young women pushing strollers, three kids in a row on each stroller!
They were walking so fast in the crisp air (notice the dusting of snow on the Jura Mountains) that I couldn't catch up to them.
But I did follow them from a discreet distance.

They deposited the children in this nice new school.
Enlarge the first photo with two separate clicks.  Have you ever seen such a thing?!

They may be daycare workers. I've seen some who bring kids of that age, they might have four or five kids in their care, and they go places like a library for instance.

Depends on if they came out without the kids.

Are they nannies looking after a group of children as a job? Or perhaps the IVF programmes in your town have had great success with multiple births :)

Are they triplets , I wonder?

I was figuring on nannies too. I wonder what it would be like to have triplets. Wow!
