I cried at this, it was just so heartbreaking with Bones being alone again and thinking that Booth doesn't want her. I loved how Parker is a little Booth except tells the truth a little more so Brennan knows exactly how he feels, he is adorable. Parker's just waiting to put everything right in the world, I love him. The bit where he gives Bones the 'Booth looks' or looks at her like she's being deliberately dense when she says that Booth doesn't love her is just pure gold. Lisa and Andi sound interesting and it was good how they kept coming up in the conversation.
Parker's habits that he picked up from Bones and how she recognised her eye roll was funny but it was so sad how Bones couldn't be a surrogate with Booth when she's not.
Booth's emotion when he's listening to Bones is so sweet, how crushed he is that Bones has got the wrong idea but I love how he makes it right.
The happy ending with Booth and Bones kissing, Parker being a matchmaker and telling them how to kiss and finally getting to see Parker's POV was very good. Aw Annie and him are just like Booth and Bones!

I like your portrayal of Parker. Kids are challenging and tricky to show, and you succeeded.

Absolutely wonderful. I love all stories featuring the littlest Booth, but this one was the best I've ever read. If only this would actually happen on the show. Sigh. Until then, I'm going to reread this story a million times until my heart bursts from its shippy greatness.

I was just re-reading this story, and since I already reviewed to ch2, I'll 'review ch1' here.
THIS STORY IS SO DAMN ADORABLE!
My fingers tingled in that second chapter, and they only do that when it's really good what I read. (I know, not the best way to tell someone a story is good, but still).
It's kinda realistic, too, with Parker, I mean. I just love it. )

This is the most adorable fic I've ever read!

I'm almost positive I read the first chapter of this, because I can remember my heart breaking as Parker questioned Brennan, but maybe I was in a rush a meant to review later and forgot or something. I dunno. It's odd of me because it was so wonderfully written. And heartbreakingly beautiful.
Especially one of the last lines, "I think I'll pass on the chicken fingers tonight, Booth. I ... I'm ... Parker's a lovely boy and he's very ... dear, but ... I ... I can't handle substitutes and surrogates tonight."
I don't remember chapter two though. Which, if a heart was cracked after reading the first chapter, well it just totally split reading the second chapter...
Parker's incessant questioning and child like reasoning just tore up me inside. Life is so simple through a child's eyes, and adults do their best to complicate things up, don't they?
Loved this line, "He rolls his eyes in exasperation- wait, that's my eyeroll"
I really loved the symmetry thing you did, letting us see Booth hearing and interpreting the conversation from the bottom of the stairs. Really nicely done.
And I loved the ending. a little bit of fluff in there from Parker's perspective to settle us down after the angst made us nearly cry. Oh yes-nearly cry. I read this on top of the grey's anatomy season finale. I'm all out of tears at this rate!
lovely little fic.

AW! Parker's a smart kid! Lol. "Why does Annie give me her extra cookies anyway?"
Is that it or will there be more? And how DOES Bones make pancakes?
