Author's Notes: This was a lot harder than I thought it would be and I hope that it's what you were looking for. Thanks to my betas Melly and F. I'd also like to thank the awesome mods for their patience with me while I was dealing with a hard drive crash while trying to finish this.

EEEEEE!!! This was so, so perfect! Your Teddy is absolutely adorable and I LOVED his thought processes - so cute! Oh, there were so many scenes that absolutely delighted me: Harry wondering what he was thinking taking out the kids to shop for presents, Draco decorating for Teddy's party, Al and Scorpius telling on James and Hugo, Severus catching Draco wanking OMG, hahaha!! There were so many great details and I have to say I'm totally in love with the idea of Draco having free reign over planning a children's party and using a WWW platter that changes the food. That was BRILLIANT! <3

Oh, and the characters!! I loved Harry and Draco, of course, but you thrilled me by adding in Severus like you did. I totally didn't expect that little bit of Severus/Regulus at the end, but you've SO made my day with that on top of everything else~~ And Luna, Neville, and Blaise! And Severus! Harry's and Draco's schoolboy crushes on Severus, haha! I'm just rambling now, but I loved that you included so many of my favorite characters in the best ways possible. :D This is amazing, YOU'RE amazing! I honestly didn't expect something so totally perfect (I know I said that once already, but it's so true), thank you so, so much! *hugs*

Hooray for kid fics!!!! I adore stories where Harry and Draco get together when their kids a little. This was just perfect. I love Teddy and his schemes. He will make the perfect little Slytherin, won't he? I loved that you didn't bash Ginny and seeing Harry mourn her was so very poignant. I'd loved all the bits with Severus. Draco getting caught was hilarious but Severus' line while walking out the door was truly brilliant. I can only imagine the fantasies that came from that. I also loved how you mixed up the couples. Neville and Luna are and always will be perfect for each other, but Hermione and Blaise, and Ron and Pansy....you have me wanting to rush off and look for stories with those pairings right now! Just a wonderful story. I hope you have written more kid fics, anon, because I would love to read them. Cheers! :)

I really enjoyed this! I love that Neville still has a Mimbulus Mimbletonia and the changing platters and Teddy the matchmaker. Lovely story!

Teddy the Slytherin matchmaker was fun! *g*

This was adorable! I love kid fics where Harry and Draco make a family with all of their kids, plus Teddy, too! Also loved some of the pairings you had here: Ron/Pansy is a favorite, and I also like Hermione/Blaise. Lovely story!

Teddy is so sweet here, trying to create a bigger, happier family. I loved Harry's parenting skills, Draco's stories about Snape and the sheer wrath of Hermione and Pansy. Lovely.

What an adorable story! I loved little Teddy trying be all devious, but then giving in and confessing so easily! And I couldn't help but grin at Harry and Draco exchanging stories about Snape. Nicely done!

oh my goodness, how cute is Teddy! He's one clever kid and I'm glad he (and Harry and Draco) get the happy ending he was hoping for!

I loved this Teddy! He was so cute as a matchmaker and Harry and Draco were wonderful in this too. Great job!

Teddy was so cute in this fic. He is definitely a little Slytherin in the making. ; )

Oh! This was so sweet! I adored your Teddy! I wish we could have gotten to see more of James, Al, Scorpius and baby Lily, but I suppose it was good that the story wasn't completely taken over by the children! :)

I adored that you didn't vilify Ginny, and the bits about both Harry & Draco having schoolboy crushes were cute (even if I do find Snape/Harry or Snape/Draco fics utterly wrong feeling for me, you did a tasteful job of a schoolchild crush on a teacher that made sense).

Lovely story! Thanks for participating & letting us get the chance to read it.
