Wow--that was a hard decision. I don't know if I could've done that. I used to want to be home with my children but when I was home I wanted to work. Harry probably had enough money to make his decision work.

It was a bit fluffy, but it's Christmas and good feelings and all that, so that's to be expected. I think it was a touching decision Harry made, and one that was clearly difficult. I enjoy this stuff with Teddy, and I hope to read more.

Great one-shot! I think you have a great insight into Harry's mind - it seems very realistic that after all that time of having a purpose- and something extremly important as well - he would search for something else in his life which would make him feel needed. After all, he hardly steps back from the danger by becoming Head of the Auror Office - obviously there's still something he feels he needs in it for himself. I love that it's Andromeda who makes him see it - she's perfect for the role as she sees so clearly how it affects Teddy - who, after all, is affected more than Harry's own children as their time together is already limited. Also, Ginny doesn't seem the type to complain, and she would understand the importance of Harry's job to him, so it makes sense that she doesn't confront him about it.

Andromeda's characterisation and dialogue were fantastic, I almost felt like I was being told off!

I also think it's typical Harry to let things slide without really noticing... after all he's never the best at noticing things. Also interesting that Ron has made the effort to be home - I think this is in character as I can't see anything being more important to Ron than his family, which I think is in a way a big difference between him and Harry (not that Harry doesn't love his family) because of how they grew up.

Anyway... long ramble... but really great story :).

Awww...That was nice...I was really dissapointed when it ended (Because it ended, not because I didn't like anything)! I really liked it. It's sad how that happens to so many people...and it's sadder howsome people chose work over family. Andromeda's words were so well written made me feel like I was the one being scolded at! Excellant writing!

Very nice! Sad, but then this really happens to a lot of people. I love that it was Andromeda who pointed it all out to Harry, that was well-done. I think you really picked up on why Harry would be so focused on work, and the idea of Harry taking some time off to be with his children was brilliant. Good for him! And lovely story! ~Gina :)
