They didn't tell me about the explosive nosebleeds and the volume of cleaning that is required to clean up the mess. I was well prepared for the nappies, vomit, (though baby, not really child, that still really turns my stomach) and textas, but not the nosebleeds. (Hope you're not eating while reading this, if you are I apologise) but I am now off to clean the bathroom, at least it is tile and not carpet. I should be thankful.
ps - I really do love my children.
