That all of the things that I thought were the most important things in life actually aren't.
That my entire world would revolve around a little person, who can break my heart by saying "Mummy I sad" and make me feel real joy by saying "(DD) loves Mummy."
That I would link all TV/ film to DD, and cry about it. Watching the Hunger Games... crying... DH asks why. My reply? "I was just thinking about if someone made DD go on the Hunger Games!" Erm...
That when I (pre-DD) looked snootily at parents with noisy children, wondering why they didn't 'keep them under control', I was being a complete idiot.
That life still goes on when you have kids, and you can still have fun and live life, travel, eat out, drink wine, see friends! (A major concern pre-DD, that life was about to end...)

That whatever used to be 'the best thing ever' does not even closely compare to DS
That one cuddle, one kiss, one smile makes everything else disappear
That I'm not as career driven as I thought was
That my extended family is not the priority in my life like I thought they were
That nothing else matters apart from making my little world safe and happy

I have a lot more patience than I thought.
My expectation as a teacher before kids was a little unrealistic.
I was a horrible child to my parents and it's all coming back to me now.
I'd just about give a body part to ensure my boys both have a day sleep.
Nothing is precious in terms of materialistic things - stuff gets broken - stuff doesn't matter ... It's just stuff!
Don't wear long necklaces with a baby if you want them to stay in tact.
Never leave the house without food .... To keep the lil monkeys occupied.
Don't play games at home you aren't prepared to do in public eg... Lifting each others shirts to blow on tummies - awkward!!

Someone needs to write a parenting book for parents to be on lessons learnt that no normal parenting book will tell you lol.

1) The same DVD can be watched 10 times in a row and it STILL isn't boring.
2) It is possible to "skate" on stepped on matchbox cars
3) Never leave a pen lying around

..you know how if you say a word, like 'sauce' over and over and over again it kinda loses it's meaning and sounds hilarious!?
-- the words "NO" and "DON'T" - pretty much fall into that category!
I have much respect for the humble pack horse.
...glitter can make you AND break you.
LOVE is such a small word for something so huge.
