|Sweet story! My sister is near to Rosie in number and my oldest nephew just graduated college and is now a Marine officer! I am dying of pride. :)|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

|It is amazing how seemingly easily Rosie can handle all sorts of problems with her children: small problems with small children and big problems with big children.|
But Sam is also quite innovative when help is needed:
Little Robby looked quite confused to see his mother feeding this interloper, but Sam distracted him with a rusk of honey-bread. "You are a big brother now, Robin-a-bobbin!"
Author Reply: Sam is pretty awesome, too! But this was a mother's day fic, so he gladly took a back seat to his Rosie!

|An excellent decision on Elanor's part, and a good example for Arwen to think on for when her own time of motherhood comes.|
Author Reply: Yes, well Elanor's decision was not hard for her when she had been so well taught by her parent's about her Uncle Frodo!
And I think Arwen may be in awe of our Rosie!

|Lovely! (clapping hands in delight)|
This nickname makes me smile.
Rose is indeed a very wise mother. Consequences are usually necessary (as well as educational), even when there is forgiveness...
Good for you, getting this published today. My Mother's Day story is only half-finished at present. Should I publish it several days (or weeks) late or wait until next year, I wonder?
We are in the last throes of sorting through the last of the boxes in cellar and attic, and then the "For Sale" sign can finally go up!
Author Reply: I thought it sort of a hobbity nickname; Sam calls Robin that in my story "Sam the Turtle Goes to Mordor", so I figure it would be a family nickname.
Rose is quite wise! (Even when she's on the verge of giving birth!)
Oh, I'd say whichever appeals to you. I'd rather see it sooner than later, but I don't wish to be greedy.
Good luck with the house sale, sweetie! I hope it all goes smoothly (which is much more important than quickly).

|Rose really is a wise mum. I have to hand it to her managing 13 children. I could never have come close to handling even a quarter that number.|
Now I'm wanting to know what happen between Elanor and the bully and how the Queen handled the situation.
Happy Mother's Day.
Author Reply: The episode with Elanor and Lady Haleth is my story A: Like An Antagonized Arwen" in my "Alphabet for Middle-earth" anthology.
I could barely handle one. It's amazing to me how some mothers of large families can do it. I have a customer at work, a young mother of six darling little kids all under ten, five blondes and one wee redhead. She was in today and I noticed she's expecting again. Those kids are beautifully behaved! They stay with her, the older ones holding the littler ones' hands. They're not perfect--sometimes one may start to handle something or wander off, but she only has to tell them once, and in a very mild voice, to stop, and they do. I am totally in awe of her!

|Aww, so cute! I don't envy Adamanta the twelve children...I think just one would be nice. :P|
Author Reply: One was enough for me. (Though when I was a new bride, I wanted six. I think things turned out for the best--believe me, one was plenty!)

|Ha! This is what Bilbo meant in your Mathom story! Priceless! :D|
Author Reply: Yep. He and Siggy had some very interesting times together, LOL!

|Teehee! Baby Pippin! This is so sweet. I love the end.|
Author Reply: Pippin's an adorable baby! I love to write him when he's that tiny!
I was afraid the ending was a little sappy, but I was glad most of my readers did not think so.

|Aww! Poor little Merry! This just makes me want to cuddle him!|
Author Reply: Yes, poor little Merry! But you can see he's going to have trouble with separation anxiety all his life.
(Made me want to cuddle him, too!)

|Oh my...oh dear...Poor Bell! LOL! Somehow, I'm really glad we have electric or gas stoves now instead of fireplaces that produce soot... But the incident with the cupboard would be truly terrifying.|
Author Reply: Soot is a hassle to deal with!
The incident with the cupboard is based on an incident that happened to me when I was about six--my little sister tried to climb up a chest of drawers, and it began to topple. I was able to catch it from hitting the floor with her (like Frodo did) but I had to scream bloody murder for my mom to come in to help lift it back up so she could crawl out without being hurt! Trust me, it *was* terrifying!
