aw this was so sweet! I never really read stories about James and Lily when they were parents for that short amount of time so it was a nice change and a cute little one-shot to get lost in :)

Your characterization of Lily and James was really nice. I could still see the love they had for each other even though they were both exhausted and frustrated and I liked that. They both needed to know there was someone who loved them out there and I know from experience that it's hard to think about when you're so stressed out.

You had some nice small details that really added life into the story and I loved reading them :) The part where James and Lily were sitting on the floor and not the couches so that they wouldn't fall asleep was very believable and really added a lot! It showed how much they both loved Harry and how they were willing to sacrifice a lot for him... sleep is something most people would kill for at times!

I also liked the part where she stubbed her toe... It was so random and realistic that it made me laugh :) poor Lily just had everything going wrong for her!

Ahh, the piano! I really wish I knew how to play :( I'm glad Lily finally found something that could calm Harry down. They were literally on the point of breaking and I bet it was a huge weight off of their shoulders when Harry finally fell asleep!

haha, thank god for Sirius! I'm really glad you added him into the story right at the end :) I feel like a story with Lily and James is never really complete without at least one entrance from Sirius! :P

This was such a cute one-shot and I'm happy I stopped by and read it. nice job!


Author's Response: Hi Amanada!!

I love, love, love this time period in Lily and James's life. I'm so excited to start book two of my marauders so I can write more about this group coping with adult hood.

Lily and James are two people that I am most picky about their portrayal, so It makes me really, really happy that you enjoyed mine in this story. I think that a lot of authors have a tendency to simplify what they'd have been through. Yes, they were amazing people who died for each other and their child. But they weren't saints. They didn't have Harry and sit in a happy sort of place until their end came. They had to deal with his crying, with being so young, with not knowing what to do when he was crying... that's a lot for two barely adults!

Hahahah I so agree about a J/L never being complete without Sirius! Love that you said that!

Thank you so much for stopping by to review, Amanda! It put such a huge smile on my face! ♥ Jami
