Hey there! Here for review tag!

Ah this was definitely a fun one-shot to read! I absolutely enjoyed this, it was so cute, and definitely not pointless.

I think you showed a very believable take on James and Lily struggling with parenting. I have never been through the phase myself, but I've seen enough people go through it to say that it is indeed a phase full of exhaustion and irritation, and extreme worry, as you aptly showed here.

James and Lily's bickering in the beginning was really amusing, and I loved how it evolved into love and care for each other as the story progressed. My favourite part was Lily comparing the cat to her son though, it made me chuckle :P

Lily finally managing to lull Harry into sleep by her keyboard playing and James admission to her made me go aww. It was really very sweet.

I liked Sirius' and Alice's arrival as well, as the interaction between them and the Potters gave a brief glimpse into the outside situation. It showed that outside a war is waging, and yet James and Lily have some normalcy in their lives too as they deal with normal stuff like parenting. I really liked that whole scenario, good job!

The ending was the sweetest. The way James and Lily had a little time to each other yet were so exhausted they just fell asleep - again, very realistic.

All in all, this was a great read. I enjoyed your characterisations of James and Lily, the writing style, the plot, and the dialogues too. I don't have any CC for you. Great work!

Cheers!

Author's Response: Hi m'dear!!

I'm so happy you liked this. I really love showing the more 'normal' parts of Lily and James. I think imagining them in their days of parenthood, trying to figure out what on earth to do with this tiny little human being, is so much fun.

You know from my other Marauders one shot that I am pretty much obsessed with this group, so it makes me really happy that you enjoy how I've characterized them ♥

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a lovely review!
