So happy to see an update. I'm glad the gang is back together. I missed them all being around.
i hope you end up writing a 3rd story in this series. I love the way you write and thoroughly enjoy the stories. When I see an email saying it's been updated, I usually stop and read it immediately (Hurricane Irma happened this time).
Thanks for continuing to write and put out great work.

Thanks for the update. So happy to see an update for one of my favourite stories.
They seem to be slowly healing, although Bella perhaps a little more slowly than Carlisle. Either that or we've just not heard quite so many of his thoughts. It will take awhile yet, I guess.
At least Bella is beginning to reconnect with Alice and the rest of them. Still more work to do there, on both sides. Alice needs to come to grips with the fact that Bella has other priorities in her life now, and that the highschool friendship dynamic is bound to change now she is married with children. Carlisle I think may take a bit longer to forgive them, but then he probably never did have quite the same connection with them as Bella did.
Will be looking forward to whatever comes next. Of course I'm hoping for a sequel, although from what you've said this could be awhile yet. We've got The Babysitter, The Wife, and I suppose a logical continuation would be The Mother, or something along those lines.
Hopefully everything goes well for you healthwise, and your surgery goes well.

I'm so glad Bella seems to be happy and getting her life back together. I can't wait for Bella and Carlisle to finally make love again, especially with all the teasing they've been doing. Hopefully you're leaning more towards wanting to write a full third story because I just love these characters! I look forward to the next chapter!

So worth the wait !!
Love that Marcus and Phil are together ;)
Nice little surprise !!
Even Lauren and her ditzy self ..
I loved how Bella handled Michael & Tyler ;)
Maybe she could make him a cushion or pillow out of the material from the shirt ..
Cannot wait till more !!
Loved it ! X

I was delighted to see an update for this one. I've enjoyed this little series right from the first time I found The Babysitter. It is nice that everything seems to be falling into place, and that the boys have come around. Wondering what is going on with some of the others, such as Alice, Esme, Rosalie and Emmett. I'm of course hoping they manage to reconnect physically soon - its been a long time for them when they used to make love so often. I also suspect the day will come when they need to go back to Forks, just to help put the demons to rest as part of their therapy. And you know I'd be right up there for a sequel if you feel up to writing it. The day may come when they become parents yet again. Anyways, thanks for this update, and I'll be looking forward to the next.

So excited to get this update. Love how protective Bella is of Jasper. Jasper and Bella have a special relationship since he saved her when she was being attacked at the high school.
Date: 09 Jan 2017 10:00 PM Title: Chapter 26
I was so excited to see this in my inbox :D
I still think that Alice, Esme, Rose & Emmett are shit cunts for turning their backs on Bella ...
But I am glad that at the end of this chapter ..
That it was Jasper's father Jackson who nudged her in the direction of feeling a glimmer of hope that she one day will be healed !!
Cannot wait for more !
Love this story :D
Thank you, sweets.

Thanks for the update. Nice to see Jasper may be getting a second chance with his father. Also glad to see that Michael seems to have recovered his trust for the most part. It will be interesting to see how Garrett and Marcus are with them, and what Marcus wants to see Carlisle for.
Sorry to hear about the health issues. Hope those are improving now. I will be looking forward to seeing what comes next, and of course I'm always up for another in the series about one of my favourite couples.
Thank you. I'm not sure I will ever get my health issues under control.

I'm going to say it ..
That's what her so called friends are being .. and shit ones too !!
How is Bella supposed to heal if the people she loves the most keep tearing her down .. ??
I am glad that she told them where they can shove it ...
Maybe if they took the time to ask and undertand Bella's reasoning as tgo why she left like she did they might have a change of opinion ..
And for them to do that at Michael's art show ..
I loved the moments between mother and son ..
It seems like we are getting somewhere positive with them YAY !!
I did laugh a lot about the boys and Carlisle and balls being mentioned .. & Tyler being a ladies man ..
So cute !!
You know I loved it sweetheart ;)
Can't wait for more X

Thanks for the update. Hopefully her so called friends will stop being so judgmental at some point. Glad to see things are slowly getting better with Michael. I almost spat my Coke against the monitor when I read the hairy balls comment. Will be looking forward to seeing if Bella manages to get back some of the playfulness for the boys. Also wondering when Carlisle will finally stop the sexual teasing. They're probably both desperate to get back together sexually again.
Date: 11 Oct 2016 2:06 AM Title: Chapter 24
Oh, that's a new twist, bringing Jasper's father into the story. Wonder how that will go. Also hoping Bella will eventually realize that therapy is not a one off thing, but will take months if not years. She seemed to have been expecting results after the first session. One of my favourite stories, and will be looking forward to the next update. Thank you for this one.

Thanks for the update. Looks like Bella paid him back for the teasing. It also looks like she's going to crash and burn with regards to school if she doesn't give herself a break in order to deal with what she's been through. I know she wanted to get back to normal ASAP, but it would probably make sense to take at least a semester off to concentrate on healing the family relationships, and I wouldn't be too surprised to see their therapist recommend this. I feel sorry for Michael, as he was just beginning to come around, but she probably bit off a bit too much when she agreed to make three dozen muffins. Michael probably needs therapy as well. Tyler seems ok. Will be looking forward to the next update whenever it is ready for us.
Thank you, sweetheart.
Date: 02 Oct 2016 4:27 AM Title: Chapter 23
I don't mean to he rude really, I don't...but every time I read an update I get all sad and morose. How much longer are we looking at the grief and depressing parts until we see some happy progress?
It's a great story with really accurate feelings, I just need to know whether or not to stock up and chapters and read them right through or keep reading them one at a time.
Thanks! I really do understand character development and healing time......I just don't wanna get down when I read this. :)
You have to remember that in fic time, it's only been a couple weeks since Gabriel Varner abducted her. She's got a lot of stress on her shoulders and it doesn't help that her friends turned their backs on her. Em, Rose, Alice, Esmeralda, I mean. She just needs to let go of the guilt she feels and therapy will help with that. Can't make it all tidy and pretty without a little work.
Date: 02 Oct 2016 4:09 AM Title: Chapter 23
Bella needs to stop putting so much pressure on herself ..
She's setting herself up for failure !!
She needs deep breathes and she needs to see that counsellor also ..
I hope she listens to the advice that her professor gave her ..
Sometimes the prospective of someone that doesn't love us or who isn't close to us is just what we need ;)
Cannot wait for more
Date: 23 Sep 2016 1:57 PM Title: Chapter 22
Think she should take some extra time to do the work. If she spends so much time trying to catch up, that's less time with C and the Boys, not to mention wiping her out physically as well as mentally. I don't blame her for being pissed at Alice though
Date: 23 Sep 2016 12:29 AM Title: Chapter 22
I'm glad she told Alice off, but man...sje's gonna regret not taking on the extensions. She going to work herself to the ground.
Thanks for the update, bb. I do a little happy dance everytime I see an update in my inbox!
Thank you, hon! I tried to tell her to take the time, but you know how she is.
Date: 23 Sep 2016 12:06 AM Title: Chapter 22
Thanks for the update. That was quite the first day back. Hoping Alice and the rest of them become more supportive soon. Neither Bella nor Carlisle need the added condemnation from them. Also hoping Bella doesn't crash and burn out of school, although could see this happening. Looks like Michael hasn't totally forgiven Bella yet, although at least he's better than he was. Hope nothing gets in the way of his art festival. I'm really hoping they manage to mend their relationship with the help of the counselling, but I know they've got a long way to go. Will be looking forward to the next chapter whenever it is ready for us.
Thank you so much!
Date: 11 Sep 2016 1:37 AM Title: Chapter 21
Ohhh - he's being really evil. That's two chapters in a row he's left her hanging.
I'm just hoping it isn't because he is having visions of Gabriel Varner. He's right in saying that they both need therapy to overcome all that has happened to them.
Will be looking forward to the next chapter whenever you have it ready for us, and thank you for this one.
Date: 29 Aug 2016 3:33 PM Title: Chapter 20
I think they are finally making some progress in healing. Glad she has finally broke down and cried and talked to Carlisle. Glad Micheal has come around. I kind of like that Carlisle left her hanging. That means that they are not so serious now and maybe they are ready to have some fun.
Exactly! Felt like they needed some teasing.
Date: 28 Aug 2016 11:40 PM Title: Chapter 20
Thanks for the update. Looks like they've both got a lot of healing to do, and therapy for Bella at least is probably necessary. Nice to see Michael just beginning to come around. Hopefully their friends will too at some point. I'm also hoping they managed to charge that idiot of a photographer with something. Crashing a funeral is just plain wrong. Oh, and I'd have been pissed at Carlisle at the end as well. Will look forward to the next chapter whenever you have it ready for us.
Date: 21 Aug 2016 6:17 AM Title: Chapter 19
The treatment that Bella is receiving from thier "friends" is completely uncalled for. Some friends they are. I can just imagine this making Bella suicidal due to depression. I think that she would stick around for Tyler. I hope you cover some of these concerns soon. Can't wait for the next chapter.
Date: 19 Aug 2016 4:50 PM Title: Chapter 19
Poor, Bella! His family and friends know about all the things that Aro did and everyone he murderer? I think not, if they knew they would not be so hard on Bella.
Please update soon!! Thanks for another amazing chapter!
Date: 17 Aug 2016 9:11 PM Title: Chapter 19
Fucking hell... While I understand being angry at Bella, I would've expected that from Marcus and Garrett. Alice, Esme, Rose and Emmett have no business being so mean to Bella. So much for them being for her, huh?
Stupid reporters, not surprised tho. I was kinda expecting that to happen.
Thanks for the update, bb. Can't wait for the next one!
Date: 17 Aug 2016 8:50 PM Title: Chapter 19
Delighted to see an update on this one. Hopefully Michael will come around soon. That photographer at the end is an insensitive idiot, breaking into a funeral with a camera, but I must admit I'd been wondering if Gabriel Varner was behind that fire as well. Will be interesting to see the reaction to the photographer in the next chapter. I would imagine Carlisle and the others are going to be less than pleased.
Date: 18 Dec 2015 12:50 PM Title: Chapter 18
I understand why they are mad at Bella, but to be honest, anger does nothing for any of them. Sure, it was a stupid risk and someone died because of it, but I would be more relieved she's okay. SHE GOT KIDNAPPED AND WAS ALMOST RAPED, FOR FUCK'S SAKE! They only people with the right to be mad at her are Carlisle and the boys. THEY are the ones she promised to never leave. THEY are her family. Period. The rest can feel angry, but acting they way they did towards her is totally cruel and uncalled for.
Thanks for the update, bb. I know you've been struggling, but I never lost faith in you.
Date: 16 Dec 2015 12:47 AM Title: Chapter 16
Dr. Gerandy is a piece of work. He didn't show up for HOURS to check on her condition and then never made the tiniest effort to examine her injuries. It's a wonder he hasn't been sued years ago. I don't blame Bella for going after Jake like that. He nearly didn't check up on the call. Wow, the professionals in this town need to be replaced. I do love this story.
Date: 15 Dec 2015 7:39 AM Title: Chapter 18
Yes a new chapter!
Bella screwed up and she knows it. I can uderstand het reasons, but the boys (all of them ;-) ) feel betrayed. I hope they all get through this.
I am glad you're still posting here. Stuff them at FFN! Please keep writing. I for one, love reading your stories. They are different!
Date: 14 Dec 2015 9:35 PM Title: Chapter 18
I can see why Bella left them all ..
She did what she thought was best !
She put the saftey of her children and family first and although it went haywire I don not think she was being selfish ..
I just hope once everyone says their peace to her they let it go ..
Peter's death wasn't her fault ..
It was Aro's ...
She didn't ask Peter to follow her .. he chose too ..
So looking forward to more
Date: 14 Dec 2015 8:31 PM Title: Chapter 18
So excited to hear from you again. I have missed this story. I think this chapter is great. You did not sugarcoat the situation. You were very realistic with it. Hope to hear from you again soon.
Date: 14 Dec 2015 7:55 PM Title: Chapter 18
Oh dear, looks like it is going to take awhile for Michael to forgive her, not to mention gaining Carlisle's trust back. Carlisle also needs to try to understand Bella's point of view as well. Hopefully they will eventually be able to overcome this, and that their little family isn't broken beyond repair. Will be looking forward to the next update, and thank you for this one.
