I love this story!!!
"Levi keeps talking about how he has a girlfriend in Canada, and I don't think she's real!"
Ha ha ha ha!!! Definitely sounds like one of Michael's boys.
I like how you keep switching up the point of views, and I love how this one is told from Chrissy's. I can definitely see the wheels turning in this eleven year olds mind. And she seems to have quite an imagination. You can definitely see why Patrick is enamored with her. And of course, she would be a little spit-fire that is going to give Angela and Dwight their more than fair share of headaches in the future. But that's only because she's the perfect combination of the two. Excellent character development.
Can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I really like these characters, and I'm trying to brainstorm another story. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Oh, I loooved these last two chapters! Pam and the "Teasing means I love you," thing, and then Angela and Dwight as weird but ultimately loving parents...this has been delightful from beginning to end.
Author's Response: Thnaks so much! I had way too much fun writing it. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

that last line is SO sweet :) i had forgotten about this, but i'm really glad you updated. This is SUCH a funny concept and you write it REALLY well. Angela would definitely be that kind of mom!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm gald you liked it! It was really fun to write, perhaps I'll have to do a sequel!

I like that Angela seems in way over her head with girls rather than boys. Fun story. I hope we see more soon.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I think Angela would have a really hard time with girls, so that's why I gave her so many :-)

Wow, I never thought I'd see this story again! Yay! Oh, and MAJOR props, like, you win at life props, for the Avenue Q shout out!
Author's Response: I'm so sorry for not finishing it waaay earlier, but thanks for the review! I also suck horribly, because though I am a theatre dork, I don't know Avenue Q very well, and so I don't know what the reference is!

Chrissy likes the DaVinci Code. Angela would so burn it. Although, is it bad that a ten year old has that book, when I haven't even seen the MOVIE?
The logic of don't tell means its wrong. I get told this all the time. Little three year old "Don't tell mommy!!! No! Don't tell mommy!" "Does that mean you aren't supposed to do _____?" "No I can, just don't tell mommy!" "Why can't I tell her if you can do it?" "cause she'll be angry" "Then your not supposed to do it." usually followed by yelling and crying. And then distraction by something like gum.
Such an enjoyable story!
Author's Response: Skip the movie, just read the book, it's a fun adventure story. I love kid logic, it's so fantastic and fun to write.

"Jane followed at a more leisurely pace, her philosophy being ‘why run when you can hop, or skip, or pirouette?’"
Yes. I know kids like that. Or else, the "one more thing" "no wait. one more"
And somehow, that actually reminded me. Today, I rbought my camera while babysitting, and I have about 200 pics, and 5 movies to put on my computer....
I love how Jim is realizing he isn't a baby anymore (well, that Patrick isn't. I am sure Jim knows Jim isn't a baby)... so totally true.
She wished Jim could have had this ‘teasing means we love you’ talk with Dwight, years ago, so Dwight wouldn’t have been so paranoid all the time. But then again, maybe it wouldn’t have worked, and Dwight would’ve been even more paranoid. She’d have to tease Jim about his true feelings for Dwight later.
And aww, best friend love. So sweet.
No... I don't have tears in my eyes... no, of course not *wipes them* see... (its hormones i tell ya... sure, any excuse i can dig up outta a hat)
Author's Response: Hee, thanks for the review, and sorry I made you tear up!

So, I think I started reading this, but then I got confused because I didn't review... and so, I really have no idea... My main (only) thought is that this was post-not allowing anonymous reviews and pre-me making an account. Maybe. I dunno.
Haha, I love Chrissy pointing out marriage/birth days... needless to say I calculated that a lot when I was little (despite the fact I was the second child, I still wasn't sure)
But all of this is so in character for Dwight and Angela (and Jim and Pam, but those two are normal, so, yeah)... so great.
Author's Response: Thanks fro the review, jess!

I love love LOVE the names you've given the kids.
Especially Jane Halpert. That's inspired. ;)
Wonderful depiction of Dwight and the last line is pure Angela.
Thanks, Krissy! The Schrute girls' names all mean something like 'battle-ready' or 'fighter', so that was a lot of fun.
As for Jane, great minds think alike!
Glad you like the story!

Chriselda had still looked angry. “You got married in March, right, Mom? And my birthday is in--”
PERFECT. That may be one of my favorite moments ever.
Author's Response: Thanks! I love seeing Angela called out on her hypocrisy!

I was laughing out loud the entire time.
My favorite quote: "First of all, you're not wearing those green cargo pants anymore."
Author's Response: Thanks, Winky! I was a little nervous writing this chapter, but I'm glad it came out all right.

It cracked me up that Chrissie certainly wasn't born nine months after her parents got married:D I always thought that Angela is so hypocritical when it comes to pre-marital sex.
Yeah, she totally is, that's why it was so satisfying to call her out on it! Thanks for reviewing!
