The downside of having children

mr_tumble

When you ask people what might be the downside of having children they might say sleep depravation or a diminished social life.

But it’s not! It’s waking up in the morning with children’s TV theme tunes going around your head.

I woke up this morning with the Something Special theme tune from CBeebies in my head. I stumbled, bleary-eyed to the bathroom at 05:30 while in my head I found myself cheerily singing “Hello, hello, how are you? Hello, hello, it’s good to see you you….” Arrrrggghhhh!

They don’t tell you about that in the books.
