In fairness, I feel like "don't kidnap a baby" is also pretty foundational, but idk.
Lol at Pam having had enough of the beet wine.
"Meredith: Eh, it's fine. My kids both slept in the same room with me til they were 7 and 10. Never did them any harm." Presses X for doubt.
"Meredith: I'm not sure I want to cheer on sex with Dwight." Same.
Author's Response: Oh definitely don’t want to be cheering that on. Or his beet wine.

Ooooof. Jim's slippers needing Pam's attention is stark. Love the growing connection with Meredith... especially with Meredith remaining very Meredith.
Author's Response: Phew glad Meredith was in character there!! Was worried about her

I am not a tired mother so, unfortunately, I don’t get to be a member in this club.
But the story is still very fun and cute! Thank you for this!
Author's Response: Ah thank you so much for the review! I'm sure there's a special club out there just for you, maybe one that's not so tired!!

Belated Happy Birthday Graceface!! Isn’t it amazing when you get fics like these when you wake up in the morning?
Pam really should have tried carrots. Didn’t Jim tell her? Cece prefers them over boobs.
I can feel the tiredness in this one. It’s only temporary right? It’s not like Jim’s gonna start a new business and spend half the week in Philly… right?
Author's Response: Well, that’s what friends are for huh? Or trolling them? I’m not quite sure.

Happy birthday agx!
I’m so glad this masterpiece can finally see the light of day, I’d ask for more but you only one birthday a year. UGH.
Good job grandma
Author's Response: Why thanks. And no. No more. Wait your turn

A bit of a full circle moment there at the start. Jim being all bedraggled after being solo parent. Kind of like how Pam started this one out. I really like that as this story has progressed, several years have gone by, but they're all still supportive of each other in their own ways. It's great that they have this support system for sure.
Pam's birthday felt like a great time. A nice morning, shopping on Jim's dime, going to art galleries, what more could Pam ask for? Awwww, Erin and Pete are still together. Yay! I always liked that pairing. And they're planning a get together back in Scranton. I'm sure that'll be a lot of fun.
Wonderful work with this one. We got some sneak peaks into their lives away from the cameras which was great for sure. Great job.

Author's Response: Ah thank you so much! And for all of these reviews. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed this one, and maybe we’ll get that sequel after all!!

Yeah, a weekend with the Scotts would drain anyone. Still Michael did name his dog after Pam so there's that. A lot of fun that they're adding Holly to the group. Gives it a fun dynamic for sure. I also love the fact that even though they're spread across the country at this point, they're still keeping this group going strong. Ah the wonders of technology. Great fun reading all these for sure.
Author's Response: Well, it’s just like us on Discord, we’re all over the world and we can stilll chat, it’s great!! But yeah, not sure I’d want a weekend with the Scott’s!

Really a lot of fun to see them rally around each other like this. Also with adding Nellie to the group. Three experienced mom's giving out advice to the new lady was lots of fun. Once more you've got their voices down really well. Also feels like a lot of great lady talk there with everything, something I'm sure all four of them apprciate.
Author's Response: Oh thank you again! I try so hard to get each character right, so I’m glad it comes through. And yeah, gotta love all the advice they’re so read to dish out!

Very much fitting that it's Meredith to encourage the shenanigans here. Also loved it that when given the chance, Pam heads back home for a nice evening and maybe a nice morning too. Kind of surprised that Angela is also staying with this group. Yet it's also an outlet for her too. Nice job to bring all that in.
Author's Response: Yeah Angela was a little left field in this group, but I think if they’d have got to her at her lowest, they would have become part of her support group. And she does learn how to smile…eventually

A unique bit of bonding with Meredith for sure. At the same time we get how stressed she is with Jim not being there. Felt like Pam was just looking for anything to let off some the steam building up. Also Meredith, wow. Accurate, but still wow.
Author's Response: Hahah! I’ve not really written Meredith before, so I’m glad you said it was accurate! But yeah, I think she was great for Pam that night after Lice, and should have kept up a friendship!

"Please just eat the goddamn peas!" I felt that in my soul. Actually that applies to this entire chapter for sure. There have been MANY times I've been bouncing a screaming kid looking out the window every minute or so waiting for adult backup. And of course in times like that, time just seems to crawl. Great job in getting those kinds of feelings out.
Also Happy Birthday GraceFace!
Author's Response: Oh yeah. This chapter I’ve lived through about 5,000 times it feels like! Glad it all came across as intended!

Per usual, I love everything you write! This is gold and really picks up on the sweet relationships the Office ladies could and can have. Questions/Comments:
1. Was that first chapter anywhere around the time of the Jim talking head: “if I am sell mushed peas to my daughter, I can sell anything!”
2. Will you write us a fanfic about what Pam did (at Meredith’s suggestion that allowed him to agree to a visit from the Scott’s? You know, Smut for Smut’s Sake!
3. I love little glimpses into post Office Austin Jam… my fave!
4. Do you really think Jim will get a vasectomy? I always thought there would be one more… planned or surprise, I think they would.
5. Is Michael really the one to talk Jim into a vasectomy? Snip snap, snip snap, snip snap!!! I feel like Michael would steer Jim faaaar away!!!
6. Loved the ladies connection.. while remaining in character, they showed love, respect, encouragement, and understanding for each other’s lives and in this crazy world, we so need that. Definitely like a convo with your girlfriends!! Even the gyn!!
7. I’d 100% live vicariously through Pam’s sex life with her hunky hubby Jim… very believable!!!
Love everything you do… you’re so very talented! Thanks for sharing it with us all!
I shall do my best to answer the questions!
1. No, it would have been way after I think mushed carrots was season 7 and this chapter is set in season 8
2. Absolutely not hahahha!! Mainly because I have NO idea what it was haha!
3. I love Austin Jam fics too!
4. Im sure he’d get one after the next surprise hehe!
5. Oh absolutely Michael is the worst choice, but it’s more that he’s gone through it so many times, he can assure Jim it wouldn’t hurt!
6. Yeah they were a lot of fun. Us girls gotta stick together!
7. Hehehe I’m sure there will be more of that to come in other fics!
Thank you so so much for your lovely comments as always!! d84;a039;d84;a039;d84;a039;
