"'The first time you leave your child at school you're faced with a tough decision - down the pub or back to bed?' - Jo Brand 'Priceless like a mother's love, or the good kind of priceless?' - Bart Simpson 'You know you really are a mother when: you use your own saliva to clean your child's face; your child throws up and you catch it.' - Erma Bombeck 'Real mothers think sex is like full-time employment - it's a nice idea but it'll never happen again in their lifetime.' - Victoria Wood"
