That your hormones are never going back to normal.  I expected to be emotional and to cry a lot during pregnancy but I also expected that it would fade afterwards.  Its still just as bad.  It doesn't take a lot to make me cry.  I was never like that before having kids.

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”

That there's a good chance your 2nd child won't be the fabulous sleeping, non-crying angel that your first was!

That anything after 6:30am will quickly be considered "sleeping in".

Kids don't understand sleeping in on weekends.

Kids have the best sex radar ever.

People are going to judge you for everything you do.  Everything.  Breast feeding, formula feeding, Extended RearFacing, Forward facing too soon, CIO, Cosleep.  Its just crazy.
