Plus: the main character is very much her own person: she has a goal, is never made out to be overly attractive or unattractive, kind and gentle rather than a "genki-girl" type, and yearns for family rather than love (the romance is very slow). The male lead is likeable and is introduced as a realistic (for a shoujo manga) attractive man (he's tired when he gets home from, he has family issues but its not something angsty its something that has shaped some of his decisions and choices in life just as it has his brother). And lastly the twins: basically what will keep you smiling every chapter. Also their outfits are to die for like are you for real. (move over gossip girl)

The meh (nothing too negative): The romance is slow. And while this isn't really a problem the attraction is (towards the end of the series) slightly stop and go. The pace is off because of the main plot (the twins).

Its still really good though. If you're expecting a heart throbbing romance you're out of luck but that much is pretty clear right from the get go. Thats not the main appeal of this type of manga anyway. Its been a little while since I read a chapter but this manga's one of the good ones.

However I must add that when it comes to babysitter type mangas I do prefer Gakuen Babysitter to this, but only by a tiny margin. Love so Life has a solid romance, while in GB its more a comedic thing, but GB is cuter and has more babies.

Omg, every single character in this manga is so relatable and adorable~ The main characters are SO mature and considerate--they make me feel like a brat!!! The twins are the cutest things ever, and I get teary-eyed just watching them grow older slowly. The side characters are hilarious and CUTE!!!

Everything in this manga is freaking amazing. This is the BEST slice of life manga I've ever read!!!!

DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU WANT A FAST ROMANCE--IT WON'T HAPPEN. This manga is focused on FAMILY life, and the romance follows a realistic pace. There is a big age gap, but oh my god these two are a match made in heaven.

Don't bypass this one,
You'll love it,
Great Art - Check.
Simple yet effective storyline - Check.
Drama and Romance - Check.

There is something absolutely amazing about Slow Romances, it keeps you waiting for the slightest touch and when something does happen, even the slightest touch, it gives you thrills that are something else entirely, you keep hanging on for more.

Fantastic feel good manga!
Highly Recommended.

I usually don't start manga that are ongoing, especially shoujo...but this one is an exception!
I fell in love with the twins, their personalities are just too cute, not to mention the art is gorgeous!
The plot can be a little slow at times, but it makes the story more realistic. I like that the romance
isn't the main focus of the story.
I was very emotional reading this, with some parts making me cry like a baby! I definitely recommend this!

This is a mature drama which develops slowly but in a way which is more expressive than the spoon-fed drama of many shoujo titles. There are few of the exciting but common tropes: no roller coaster ride between times of passion and complete misunderstanding, no love triangles, no burning sexual tension. Instead you have a kind young girl who as a result of growing up in an orphanage and her own nature is a born caretaker of children, who forms a familial bond with two toddlers and their father... which over time becomes a realization of love. A love story where the "family" bonds form before the romantic ones. Its told gently, the art is good as is the writing. It's only fault may be that it lacks the passion and action younger readers may need. But I think that's a nice change from the tendency of most shoujo to dwell on acute pain rather than it's healing. I see other comments mention "fruits basket" and the phrase "good for the soul." Those are apt comparisons.

If you ask a heart-warming story, this is definitely for you. The story is simple n happened in everyday-ordinary-life, while no conspirations, no hellspawners, no evildoers, but just a girl who loves child so much.
Yeah, it's so light-read, that I think it needs more weight on it (because sometimes I have no impression about the story).
I wonder, why I like Aria so much (a story with similar theme with this series, but no romance) while I got no much impression from this series... It seems missing something... Gah, I dunno... but that's it...

really, i love shounen manga, fighting scene, harem and of course comedy

i really really have a few Shojou manga to collect, and this is one of them
cute, heartwarming, and of course it can read by anyone (yeah parents, sister or niece)
the moral story in here is big too...

recommended for you who want a "light" read after too much work or shounen manga...
