Yatabe sensei's remarks:

「三つ子」は普通、triplets という意味ですが、この諺では三歳の子どもという意味です。

There is a Japanese proverb that says mitsugo no tamashi hyaku made.
The word Mitsugo usually means triplets but, but in this proverb it means a 3 year old child.
It means that a person's personality from childhood does not change during their lives.
What do you think?
