Ha! With three under two I'd probably pick dog walking over childcare. You could walk dogs in the morning before your kids get up, or in the evening when they're asleep. Or have all the kids contained in some combination of stroller and baby carrier. :-)

With kids this young you may just need to wait awhile though. At least when your kids are this little they don't need much in the way of clothes and shoes and toys. And it's easy to find good used clothing in baby and toddler sizes. It gets harder when they get to school age.

I don't blame you for quitting work. I can't imagine what childcare for three under the age of two must have cost.

maybe taking care kids since walking dogs with 3 kids all being under 2 would be no fun thanks

- babysitting.
- walking dogs.
- running errands for seniors.
- delivering items like flyers or newspapers.
- working outside the home when your husband is around to take care of the kids.

Or do you have any skills you could tutor or teach in your home like piano or painting?

Or any skills you could use to do freelance work? Lots of people write, edit, do graphic design, web design, sewing or mending, etc.
