Wow, that party did not go anything like I thought it would. Thank you for being so different. Rosalie seemed a little too snobbish when it came to the neighborhood that Bella really seemed to like. Did not get the Alice and Bella interaction I was hoping for, merely simple words passed in crossing. The way he and she started to get angry with each other was interesting . . . albeit long overdue. I'm super glad she realized what was happening and gracefully stepped away from Anthony and left. I was even more elated to find out he showed up to apologize and actually started a dialogue with her. When she found out more, she was so helpful with a ton of information that will most likely help her tremendously with both the mornings and getting him to another adult before school and the financial part that made be available to him. I agree, she is a really great teacher.

The part of the grocery store and him getting to know Anthony a little better was kind of sweet. The cashier offering the coupon so that the little one could have his candy was so wonderful of her to do that. I am glad that everyone brought some presents . . . this will give him more to play with hopefully. I wonder how much stuff he had with his mom and the grandparents that he just does not have anymore. It is so sad. Loved the ending and him trying to back away stealthily and her introducing herself as her and the delusional hag. That was funny. Poor Bella and Edward in this situation . . . it is just so sticky right now.

That first meeting for Bella and Edward was anything but a 'meet cute' . . . he made her cry . . . and she's been taking care of his son. My goodness. I'm glad Bella has Rosalie . . . someone she can turn to and who seems to have good advice so far. The BBQ should prove to be interesting. Anthony will be super happy she is there, but Edward will flip a gasket that she is there. Wait until he finds out that she and the teacher are one in the same. I also can't wait for her to meet the whirlwind that is Alice at the party.

Poor, poor Anthony . . . he is so sick and doesn't have his mommy anymore. I feel so bad for him. And clueless Edward . . . he knows he is sick, but sends him to school anyway . . . my goodness. I realize he is thinking about his job right now, but that is no longer his number one priority . . . it is now his son. Yes, it is important to have a job, but it will have to be second to the child. Interesting little tidbit thrown in about his parents . . . makes you wonder what is happening there.

Well, it certainly seems that Edward is not adjusting to being a father yet. With dropping off Anthony way before he was told was allowed. And . . . without feeding him? Ugh. Poor Anthony. I noticed your Bella has a bit of OCD in her day-to-day. Interesting twist that Renee moved away, and Charlie followed . . . and raised Bella in AZ . . . I like it. Funny when Charlie wanted to know how often would be a burden, on visiting Bella. LOL.

This story finally made it to the top of my TBR list and I've just finished this first chapter. Why would Jessica not let Edward know she kept him? How odd, well to me it's odd. I read this fan-fic all the time and I've never read an Edward working in lumber. Refreshing that he actually has to work for a living. Really liked that Edward felt something for the child right as seeing him. Also, really liked that he felt bad for the child being in foster care. Great ending there with Anthony saying "I hate you" . . . powerful statement.

Thank you for the roller-coaster of emotions this story has taken me. I loved the threesome Anthony added to this storyline. He is adorable.

Not picking up that fallen piece of paper means that Edward will most likely see it when they switch cars later.
Yay for the kiss. It was great to have Edward lay it all out for Bella like he did. It was about time!

[He might not have given it a second thought except for it was the third time that week that he'd seen a white sedan that looked similar to the one that had just left.] -I thought I was just putting more emphasis on something so insignificant as the white car but to have the identity of the driver being who it was...I wonder if she was who Bella encountered at the grocery store when she first took Anthony with her (the lady her commented on how Anthony looked like the lady's son at 5yrs old).
I'm glad to see that Vicki wasn't Edward's first choice when it came to Anthony's care.
I'm glad that Bella/Edward cleared the air between them about the fees issue (even though Bella hasn't completely forgiven him for his attitude).

I really love how Bella handled Anthony after his disaster time with Vicki.
Yikes for the downhill of Bella/Edward and their 'friendship'.

[Bella reached down and picked Anthony up in an attempt to put him back in the cart. But Anthony had other plans. He wrapped his legs around her waist and his arms around her neck, thus preventing her from pulling him away from her body.] -that was just adorable! I really loved the grocery shopping moment between Bella/Anthony/Edward.
Ugh for Vicki and Derek...can they just leave?
Rosalie seems more interested in Derek than Emmett.
*facepalm* Alice and her big mouth.

Aww for the time Bella and Anthony spent together that afternoon. They seem so comfortable around each other.
I hope Bella's impersonation doesn't backfire on her later on.
