Told by Sharona.
Simgod: Shouldn’t you be working on an update?
SharSim: “Can’t you see I’m busy?”
Yeah. Busy playing games.
“Damn you for being omniscient and omnipresent! Okay, I’ll stop procrastinating. But first I gotta knock this guy off the road.”
You really should just do it now.
“Okay… Wait! They’re lining up again.”
So here we are with this fine update, at long last. It’s not that I’ve been procrastinating, I’ve just been busy. So let’s go down the line of children.
# 1. As you know, Jemma finally broke up with Stevan.
“Nope! No weddings happening any time soon. She broke up with him! Proper stuff. Did you know he had the nerve to call and ask me out, even while they were still dating?!”
Of course I will never tell Jemma that. I’m not sure if she is doing any better though, seeing that she broke up with him the day before Snowflake Day. Hopefully she will come back to happy & funny self soon.
At least she has been dancing a bit.
In fact, they’ve all been having fun in the show. Me, I hate it and can’t wait for spring.
# 2. Grayson, my darling dear son, has upped his nerd cred and learned how to mind meld.
“Hold still, I think I’m feeling something.”
“Oh never mind, it’s just a pimple.”
Tegan: “You suck.”
He has a little ways to go with that yet. Meanwhile, he aced the University exam so he will go as soon as the next term begins… or when we can get the family sorted out.
# 3. Tegan recently had her prom, which she sort of went to, after a quick pitstop at the bar for an energy drink. I don’t know why she didn’t just ask me to make one for her. Instead she called me to the bar to “help out”. I figured out she just wanted help relieving the cute bartender so she could snag him for his phone number.
It was a fun night out all the same. I got to meet this lovely boy named Sirus Flake.
“Thanks for the autograph, Mrs. Watley! You’re so amazing and gorgeous!”
What a charmer! With all these amazing and gorgeous men, I sometimes wish I wasn’t married with children.
“You’re a computer whiz? Awesome! I pretend to me, but I bet you can like, program Ruby and C+ or whatever is new and cool these days. Me, I just know some basic html and am an expert at Google.”
“Oh Mrs. Watley, I’m sure you are under-estimating yourself. You seem like a very intelligent lady.”
Mm-hmm, and you’re invading my personal space and I like it.
Me: “True, that was just a joke. I’ve been using computers since I was a kid, and I can usually figure out what I need to. I just don’t program – I’m more into taking them apart.”
“I suppose. But it would be nice to put them back together too.”
Okay then. Where were we? Sorry, got a little side-tracked there.
Oh, while we were chatting I noticed that tattler Vinna Rocha arguing with my nephew Ben’s dad, Jack. I wonder did she write some nasty gossip about him like she did with Jemma.
But back to Tegan. She has been practicing her violin, but not nearly enough. She won’t be ready for any Conservatory exams any time soon. “Hey mom, wanna hear me play Go Tell Aunt Rhody?”
“Sure, honey. Sounds like you need more rosin on the bow though.”
Okay, who’s next? Jemma, Grayson, Tegan….
Oh! # 4, Baby Blue.
“I’M NOT A BABY ANYMORE!!”
That’s true, baby, but you’re still my little girl.
“I’m a big girl! And why does everyone always think I’m a boy?!”
Well…. I guess we should probably start dressing you a little more girly. And we could call by your real name, Shasta Blue.
“Nooo, it’s okay I like being just Blue. Shasta is kind of a weird name.”
I see a boy over there. Go talk to him.
“Are you sure you’re a boy?”
“Yeah, my name’s Freddy. Why’d ya think I’m not a boy?”
“Cause you’re wearing pink gloves.”
Ohhh, baby Blue. We’ll have to have a little chat with you later.
Next. Baby # 5. Little Maxwell!
“Maxwell, you better not be thinking about putting that thing in your mouth!”
‘Okay I’ll wait ’til she’s gone.’
I’m glad Aubrey is around to help out. I don’t know if I’d manage these babies without him.
So now we come to babies #6 and #7. Yes, that’s foreshadowing.
Lulu: “You’re really having twins, Aunt Sharona?”
“Yep, it’s confirmed!!”
It was Snowflake Day and we were having a party. We decided on a feast party instead of gift giving, just so we could invite lots of people and not have to worry about getting them all gifts. The family could get their gifts later (or just enjoy the gift of Simlife…)
Look how snazzy my boy looked in his suit!
I think he was pretty excited that Sunny came.
His girlfriend Tawnya was here too.
Adairna’s daughter Lucy attended.
I think she and Tegan could get along.
Tegan seemed to be getting a lot of attention from the boys.
Poor Van was really upset because his vampire wife had died mysteriously.
My little granddaughter is almost walking!
Blue: “I got a dress on. Do I look like a girl now or what?”
So we were all having a grand ol’ time. The babies weren’t due to arrive til much later that evening. But I felt a funny feeling in my stomach.
Labor freak-out ensues.
Wonderful timing. “It’s okay, Krisztina, I got this.”
I didn’t want to go to the hospital. Jemma left though, because she got a call from some boy.
Garrick: “So you’re just gonna have the babies here, right in front of everyone?”
Lucy: “A home birth? Awesome!!”
“WHO’S CALLING ME? I AM NOT ABLE TO TAKE YOUR CALL AT THIS MOMENT!!”
I was exhausted…
But I finally did it.
Welcome # 6, Salem. He rolled Slob and Hydrophobic.
And # 7, Kale. He is Clumsy and Hydrophobic.
I am definitely taking a break from babies for a while. Garrick, you’re cut off!
