I'm so happy to see an update on this story, it's always been one of my favorites. This is so cute and sweet. I love how you incorporated the buying of the house. Wonderful job. I hope you continue with it. :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much.   Now that Jim and Pam are together on the show, there's so much canon that I can start incorporating that I couldn't when I first started this story. Thanks so much for the feedback!

This is just heartbreaking, but beautifully written. I loved the glimpse of their wedding, a nice juxtaposition to the tragedy. I'm interested to see where you take it.

Summary: I just love the idea of Jim and Pam and them having a family so I just write the situations as they come to me. Most likely they won't be in any chronological order, but just as I think of them. Plus, I don't think we'll get to see much of this, if any, on the show - which is okay, because it's about the whole office and not just them...but still, a look once in a while would be nice.

Hey Sally, it's been forever since I've read this story, so I took some time this morning to reread the entire thing. There's such a sweetness in how you portray Jim with his little girl that always gets me. He's such a wonderful dad to her and the fact that she has a disability makes it all the more heartbreakingly so.

The idea of the birthday party was adorable. I'm glad it was such a big thing for them to celebrate his daughter. Love that.

I loved this chapter and how you had Pam come right into Jim's family. Jim's brothers are still douchebags but I'm glad that Pam got along with his parents. She does seem to be fitting into the picture quite nicely :)

Can't wait to see where you go with this. Mmmm...smut ;)

Hey, xoxoxo, wanted to let you know I really have been enjoying this story, even if I'm not the most frequent of reviewers. I especially love a chapter like this which presents the fears as well as the joys of a new baby along with shedding light on the not-so-perfect side of JAM. And you do such a great job of keeping it all in character and related to the show. Wonderful job! :) For what it's worth, I know people are wanting Jim's side, but I hope you keep this story in Pam's POV. I love reading about Pam and her own special connection with the baby.

Author's Response: Thanks iamapam!  That is very sweet of you to say.  I have always known that this story was about Pam's conversations with her "Bean".  There was never a time where I thought Jim would come barging in...except for the part where I kinda planned for Jim to come barging in.  I think people of both schools of thought ;) will be happy in the end.  At least I hope so.  :)

What a perfect way to wrap everything up, Colette. Just beautiful.

She guided his hand beneath the hem of her shirt and placed it on her belly. When he spread his fingers apart, stroking gently, they practically spanned her entire midsection. He wondered how long he’d be able to do that.


Soon he’d be her husband, but he’d already considered himself that for quite a while.

Still, he couldn’t help thinking how separate their lives might have remained, how she might have become a distant, never quite buried, ache. And now, this - this beautiful, scary, almost impossible idea - inextricably linking them forever.


This baby.

This gave me such a warm feeling. I loved it. Great job!

It's been about a year since I've read any Office/JAM fics. And to be completely honest, I decided to see what yours was since it's currently sitting directly above mine and I knew you had taken it down and resubmitted it. I was kind of expecting it to be like the one-shots I saw when I left last year, all sappy JAMbaby-esque. Oldleaf, you've left me pleasantly surprised. :)

I think your characterization of Pam is pretty awesome here. I like that she's still unsettled and vulnerable with her feelings, though instead of having her run from the, you have her embrace them as she says these things to Jim.

there's a ring on your finger that represents me and a ring on my finger that represents you
I'm a softy for lines like this.

you're an open book and I'm the kind with the pages stuck together that you have to pry open carefully because you know there's a page there, but open too forcefully and it tears.
I believe someone else commented on this but I have to reiterate the greatness of this line. It's actually a fantastic way to describe Pam.

I actually didn't get the show reference of Jim smiling when she walked in the room the first time I read it, but what stuck out to me in that moment was that you nicely describe how her mother's influence still has a hold on her and I'm glad you took a moment to establish that she would be cautious about her own relationship after seeing her parents' long standing marriage fall apart because that is how life works and we often reflect in our own relationships what we see around us.

Mostly, I just love that you have Pam, after five years of us knowing her and her going through changes, still is learning and finding herself (and her relationship with Jim) That just because they're married doesn't necessarily mean they've got it all figured out but they're happy and that's the important part.

Anyway, to make a long review short, good job! I hope you decide to give it another shot. Maybe try something from Jim's POV? I'd be interested in your take.

Author's Response: iamapam1883, I so appreciate such a detailed review. That's so kind. I adore your fics and I'm thrilled you enjoyed this one. I'm a huge Pam fan - she's actually the reason I kept watching the show, I related so much to her character in season 3, so I've always felt like I "get" her to some extent and it's nice to see that came across in the story. I'm really excited everyone enjoyed those two lines. I love playing around with words and metaphors and things like that. And yes, Stress Relief is definitely the episode that guided me in writing this. I don't know that I'm going to continue this one, but never say never. Maybe I'll randomly think of something more to add. This was really just a way to force myself to be creative again, because I haven't written anything in awhile (I like to write original stuff too) and it's just always been something I love. Anywayyyy, thank you so very much! I really, really appreciate you taking the time to leave such a lovely review.

Wow, this was refreshingly sweet. I really loved the realism of the story, how even though they love their child, they need a break every once in a while and how even if they get said break, it's never really one because issues come up. Life isn't about romantic gestures one after another but the small moments we get in-between all the insanity that we can hold on to. You portrayed that very well.

I loved that Jim and Pam's anniversary wasn't perfect, but it was them. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! That idea that even though you unconditionally love your child, sometimes you really do just need a break. Jim and Pam aren't perfect, and I wanted to convey that here, as well as bring a cute little Anniversary story. Thanks so much for your very kind review!

Interesting new premise Danielle. At first I thought it was just a smut story but you've got something cooking. I really liked how the enjoy each other in the morning--your imagery there is great!

Cece was just adorable in this. I love how she asked why Jim kissed Pam. Too cute.

Jim getting fired was completely unexpected. Will they be getting rid of more people? Will Pam's job be in danger as well? Can't wait to see where this goes! :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much, I'm so happy you're enjoying this. I get nervous writing the smut, but thought it fit in with the perfection in the beginning rolling into the messy ending of this chapter. It's tough writing a two year old speaking in a story, so I'm happy it's not coming out badly here. Next chapter is up, hope you enjoy it! Thank you again for the kind review! :)

Okay, you know me, always late...

Anyway, wow, they really can't catch a break, huh. Wasn't expecting Pam to get cut down, too. There's so much tension here, I'm really interested to see how this all plays out.

You've got such a nice sense of emotion here. I feel like you do a great job of showing just how beaten down Jim grows the more day goes on and how just exhausted he is at the end of the day. I'm glad you have Pam be so supportive yet there's tension there as well. Again, Cece was a sweetie and at the same time, just another added difficulty.

Can't wait to see how you keep this one going, great job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really happy that the effort I've put in here in describing their emotions and the worries they have is coming out well. I'm having the most difficulty with Cece, trying to make her a little bit of both of her parents, so hopefully I can continue to do well with her description as well. I'm so happy to know that you'll be following this and I hope you'll continue to let me know your thoughts! I appreciate the feedback! :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I was mostly worried that their argument wouldn't come out right, so thanks for letting me know that it did! I plan on more Jim/Cece days so hopefully you'll enjoy them as well. Happy to know you're following this story :) Thanks for the encouragement!
