Love this! I don't usually read HA fics, but this was so touching. I love how Arnold insists she's not like her mother. I also like that in some ways Helga defends Miriam without entirely absolving her of her mistakes either. Great read!

I love this. I decided to read it because it was featured on the "Hey Arnold! Fanfiction Awards" forum. It's so cute!

Awesome story. I could definitely see Helga acting this way as a mother. She wants to avoid making the same mistakes her parents made, partcularly her mother. She wants to be the mother she didn't have growing up, and she's going out of her way to do that by making sure their daughter has a decent lunch and will be taken to preschool by her and Arnold. Helga feels that she has to make it up to her daughter with all this because Miriam never did it to her.
But I read a fic where Helga was scared that she would turn into her mother while she was pregnant and Arnold reassured her that she was already being a sweet and caring mother, just like how she is here. That's part of why she needs Arnold, for that confidence and reassurance. He can give it to her like no one else can.
Awww, it's so sweet how Lucy is already for school, and Helga assures her she won't ever have to walk there alone. And she's wearing her mommy's old bow with matching pants! How cute!
Helga will be a wondeful mother to the child she will have with Arnold. :) But she'll still have some of her old traits, like punching her football-headed husband with Old Betsy and the Five Avengers!

AW what a wonderful one-shot! Very cute and not mindless at all-you really got their personalities. I so hope to see more of these two in the future! :D
| Flintphone chapter 1 . 2/28/2010
Ah, that was a great one-shot. Arnold and Helga with children should be explored more often.
| Esus927 chapter 1 . 2/27/2010
Really nice and cute. Nice job.

I love this little one-shot. It's fluff, but not mindless, as other reviewers have pointed out. Helga would naturally be confronted with the issue of not wanting to be her mom when she gets kids of her own, which could very well cause her to become "Supermom."
I like how Helga also still has her edge, calling Arnold Football Head and all that, but they work together and understand each other. Very well done!

Fluffy, yes (and what's wrong with that? :P ) Mindless, not a bit. The idea of Helga dreading to be like her mother and, to an extent, Arnold always wanting to be there for his kids (since he knows what it's like to not have your parents around) is not exploited enough in the fanfic world. The idea lends itself for some great writing, not all of it fluffy either, being parents (successful ones at that) is one of the most maturing things Arnold and especially Helga could go through. So if you ever feel like you got something else in store for this fanfic, I wholeheartedly think you should pursue it.
