Transcription: 
My parting question for all the triplet parents that I interviewed was: What was your greatest challenge? Seventy-five percent of them had some derivative of the word "time." Fifty percent said that they didn't have enough time to spend with each of them individually. That's the greatest challenge in raising multiples. The other twenty-five percent said, not enough time with spouse, not enough time for myself, not enough time to organize. Take advice from my friends and other moms of multiples and realize you are not going to ever have time to do everything you want to do. Prioritize and make time for those things that are really important. I think that's the greatest gift of being a parent of multiples, you are forced to make these decision. Sometimes, they are healthy ones.
