I wouldn't like my child going away especially when he had been unwell, even if he was going to a close relative. Joey did well and I think she'll catch up on sleep especially if Jack has a nap with her

Poor Jo- she must be exhausted. Good to finally see her admitting she's tired and that it would be a good idea for her to spend some time in bed though, rather than getting to a point where she has to be ordered to by Jem or Jack.

So glad Jack is back home and able to look after Jo. She will be able to rest and recover now I don't post many reviews,but I am very much enjoying this story. It's great to login on a Sunday evening and find another chapter - thank you!

Just to add to my last review - I was forgetting that Aillie was still so young.  It was more than likely that Madge would not have been able to help much before.  I suppose, too, it is "Jo's Challenge" and too much help unless really necessary would stop it from being so.

Love these Vick.

Loved that Jo got through this and the first days Jack was back without collapsing. I particularly like Jem in this but a bit surprised Madge not offering a bit more help.

Lovely seeing Jack and Jo together, working as a team rather than Jo behaving a bit like his child, and glad he's been able to identify Stepen's needs and that Jo will be too tired to be able to get him back into routine. Like Jem and Jack here too, Jem not letting Jack know when he is due back etc, and giving him Jo to look after in effect so he stays at home. Thank you :-)

Thank you Vicky.  

As someone trained in late twentieth century child care I think what a inappropriate thing to do, sending Stephen off when he is still clinging and under the weather, but it was thought to be good practice in the twenties and thirties.  At least he has stayed with Madge before and he will have play mates he knows.

I think Jack offering to go to bed wit Jo for the day is a lovely idea.
