I'm not saying we've become an idealised, TV commercial inhabiting family. There've still been ups and downs, but there have been enough incredibly happy times that the thought of not having a toddler around singing tunelessly but cheerfully and laughing about nonsense, fills me with dread.

This will complicate things. The Maths of it is bewildering: we will be outnumbered; our hands will be outnumbered; my career will be on the back burner for five more years; most scarily, instead of having one inter-child relationship to manage, we'll have three.
