Garrett is confused by all the posts this weekend!  What is going on?!

Well, there was an incredibly weird glitch in my game.  I booted up the save today and Mollie and Garrett were somehow reverted back to romantic interests and the twins were 1 day from toddlerdom.  So, yeah.  I am basically uploading as many of the images I can from the time I still have with the twins because let’s face it, I don’t want to add more time onto the baby stage just for legacy purposes.  Sorry, I love you, dear readers, but not enough to replay the baby stage with twins.  I’m sure you understand.

Anyway the twins just aged into toddlers today and they are the more ridiculously cute toddler twins I’ve ever had born in-game.  Like…whoa.  Expect mucho posts involving toddler twins.  Seriously.

Thanks to those who read, follow, and comment on the blog!  To show my appreciation, I will be hosting another lottery when I reach 1000 views.  It will be my 1000 views for 1000 Simpoints lottery!  Whooo!  Get excited, people.  It’s gonna be big.

Chapter 2.8

Things got better after I gave Victor a piece of my mind.  Well, that and my maternity leave was coming to an end.  I was looking forward to getting back to work.

I even started to feel more like a normal person.  I was able to do chores again and I didn’t get angry as quickly.  The doctor told me I probably had postpartum depression and I would need to watch out for that next time.

It felt good to be getting out of the house.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore the girls but I need some grown-up interaction.  It’s so difficult to get that, even with Garrett, when there are two babies demanding our attention.

We hired a babysitter from a highly recommended agency.  I felt mega-confident that my girls would be alright as I walked out the door.

I was really looking forward to my first day back in the office.  The pay sucked.  I was only making $39 an hour as a video game programmer compared to the $236 I was making in the military.  Money was going to be very, very tight for a while.

I could not stop thinking about the girls while I was at work.  Something seemed wrong.  My “Mommy Sense” told me to call Garrett and have him meet me at home.

I rushed home like I’ve never rushed before.  It was tough being that my broom is so old and slow but I got home as fast as I could and I’ve never been so angry.

Both of my daughters were hungry, dirty, and lonely.  They were MISERABLE and screaming for good reason.  The babysitter just stood in the corner covering her ears and yelling at them to shut up!  I didn’t even have the patience to cast a curse on her.  I just told her to get away from my babies and out of my house!  She had the nerve to ask for payment and I told her she is lucky I wasn’t calling the cops.

“Oh, Penny.  Mommy is so, so very sorry.  There, there.  Hush, little one.”

Garrett arrived just as the babysitter was leaving in a huff.  He got the gist of what was going on and jumped right in to help with the girls.

“Garrett, I’m not going back to work.  I’m not comfortable leaving the girls with anymore sitters.  I just can’t do it.  They are far too important for that!”

“Well, money is already tight, babe.  But you are right.  We just can’t allow that crap to happen again.  Are you sure you can handle it?  I don’t mean that in a bad way, either.  I’m just worried about your health.”

“No, I can do it now.  It’s silly but before today I guess I didn’t realize how much they meant to me.  I thought they were more annoying than helpless little babies.  They need my protection.”

“Well, then quit your job.  I’ll back you up on this.  And don’t worry about money.  We will make this work.  Also, call me at work any time you need help.  Or call my mom.  She’d be glad to come over and play with these little gems.”

As scary as it was to quit my job and know I would be home alone with the twins all day, I knew it had to be done.  I couldn’t trust just anyone with the girls.  They were too important and too precious.  I knew we would make the new arrangement work somehow.  It was just the how part I needed to figure out.

“Don’t you two worry.  Mommy will never leave you to fend for yourselves again.”

Chapter 2.7

Author’s Note: This post is picture heavy and long!

After 5 days at home with the girls, it was finally time for Garrett to go back to work.  I was scared but we needed him to go.  I was still on maternity leave and we couldn’t pay our bills!

I ended up wake at 5am too because the girls needed feeding.  I swear, they scream at the same time just to annoy me.  They are on the same schedule for EVERYTHING.

Before he left, Garrett came into check on us.


“What’s wrong, babe?”

“I just don’t think I can do this on my own.”

“Don’t be silly, honey.  You’ll be fine.  You are a great mom.”

He kissed me and said goodbye to the girls…who were now screaming because they were dirty.

“Remember, baby, you will be just fine.”

“Uh huh.  Yep.  Ok.”

And then I got a little angry and immature.  I ran to the window and yelled down to Garrett.


I am sure it was the hormones yelling at him.  He ignored me but his carpool probably thought he was married to a mental patient.

The girls still needed changing and baths and everything else.  They were not afraid to let mommy know it either.

Penny was first because she had an “incident” that required a bath.  I got her all squeaky clean.

And then she peed all over herself again.  Oh…and me too.

“Penny…are  you trying to make Mommy leave you in the woods?”


“Well, at least you are cute.”

Liv just needed a quick change and a snuggle.

“You are Mommy’s little cuddle-bug aren’t you Livvy?”

She thought it would be awesome to spit up on me.  Why not?  I am already covered in pee.

Ok well they are super cute when they are happy.

And they are pretty cute when sleeping, too.

And now that they are happy for a brief moment Mommy is going to take a bath.

Garrett came home early that afternoon.  I almost didn’t recognize him.

“What are you wearing?”

“You said I looked like an idiot.  So I bought new clothes over lunch.”

“Hmm…well you look nice.”

“How were my darling daughters today!?  Cute I bet.  Also…you decided to go all Mommy, I see.”

“What is THAT supposed to mean?!”

“Have you seen what you are wearing!?  Those are total mommy clothes.”


“What did I do?”

“I spent my morning dealing with screaming babies.  Then I got peed on.  Then I got puked on.  I only just got a bath after being covered in goo for too long.  Don’t you dare tell me I am dressed in ‘mommy clothes’ because you have no idea what it is like being alone with two newborns all day!”

“Mollie, I am so sorry, babe.  I was a huge jerk.  Here I come in with new clothes making fun of you and I didn’t even think.”

“Please, Mollie.  Please forgive me.  I will do better.”


I still put some spells on him.  I gave him a good fire blase followed by an ice blast.  I wanted to turn his stupid ass into a frog but genies are resistant to that kind of magic.

Oh well.  I think he still learned a lesson.

Chapter 2.6

We had to move.  Oliver had gotten back from Art school, mom had just given birth to Colleen and Garrett and I had Penny and Liv to deal with.  There was just not enough space in that 4 bedroom house.  We were going to kill each other.

Luckily, mom and dad had money to spare and bought this little two bedroom house near the city for us.  It’s not beautiful but we were able to make it our own for the most part.  We can’t really afford to make it pretty right now.  We only have $400 in the bank and the bills are coming due.

We were able to decorate with some family photos we had.  Seriously though, we can’t even afford to paint the house.  We did up the girls’ room really nicely but otherwise we have to live with the ugly.

Mom and Dad got us the wine rack and 5 bottles of wine as a house warming gift.  They said we will need it.  I have no idea what she means.  The girls are only 3 days old and we just moved in.  Things are pretty good right now.

Mom also gave me this amazing photo she took.  I remember it hanging in our house growing up and I loved it so much.  Now it hangs in my house in my dining room.  It’s amazing to think I am all grown up now.

I can’t believe how lucky we are.  Although…Garrett goes back to work tomorrow and I am really scared of dealing with the babies on my own.  Well, how hard can it be anyway?  They are babies!
