Chapter 2.38

My birthday was more eventful than I anticipated.

Just as everyone was getting ready to head home, Mom’s water broke.  Since Colleen had already left and Oliver and Lanya had their kids, I went with Mom to the hospital so Dad could get Holly home.

After a mere six hours of labor my mom brought my newest sibling into the world.  My baby brother Collin Scott Lox is a real looker for only being a few hours old.

I had to say I was feeling a bit miffed by this whole thing.  I’m not going to lie, I’d love another child but I don’t think it is in the cards for me.  My mother was beaming with the birth of her new son and I can’t say I blame her.  She loves this whole motherhood thing.

When I returned home early the next morning I caught  Adam saying goodbye to his baby sister before he ran off to catch the bus.  It’s moments like these when I realize how lucky I am to have what I do.

After we got Adam to school Garrett, Lucy, and I went to work on my new gallery.  I was still baffled by this purchase but Garrett was so damn proud of himself I just decided to go with it.

“So, this is it.  It’s looking pretty naked.”

Garrett tucked Lucy away in the play area.  I thought this addition was a wonderful idea.  I love the idea of bringing Lucy to work with me and knowing she is safe while doing so.

I started to unpack the trunks I’d been using to store my photos all these years.  It took about five hours but we did it!

I had photos from China, Midnight Falls, Starlight Shores, the beach…so many memories.

The whole place looked amazing!  After all the work was finished I sat with Garrett in the small cafe.

“I can’t believe you bought be an art gallery…”

“It seemed like a good and reasonable idea, Molls.  I mean, you are an artist, Olivia is known for her masterpiece paintings, Penny is an up-and-coming photographer.  Adam and Lucy are still kids so who knows what they will do.  I mean, we have a legacy, Mollie!  We can’t keep selling our life away bit by bit just to get through the day!  We need to leave something behind for the kids!”

“What is with you these days!  Always we won’t be around forever.  You are 35!  I’m only 40!  We aren’t going to die tomorrow!”

“You don’t know that, honey.  Nothing is forever!  Look at your parents!  Your father died long before you were married!  We could go anytime and we would have nothing to leave the kids!”

“Alright, alright… You aren’t wrong.  Let’s home this thing makes us some money.  Adam will be home soon, I’ll grab Lucy and let’s head home.”

When we got home Adam was just arriving from Scouts.  He took Lucy off to keep her busy while I prepared for the twins’ homecoming.  It was 3pm Friday and they would be home at 10am Saturday.  I had so much to prepare!  Food needed cooking and we hadn’t even gotten the Christmas tree up.

We put an old TV in the play area and the kids camped out in front of that while I worked.

All the worry I felt when I discovered I was pregnant right after Adam came along was totally misplaced.  Adam and Lucy have an incredible bond.  I suppose it comes from being the only two left in the house after the older kids left.  Ollie and I share a bond I don’t have with Colleen or Holly.  It’s not that I don’t love them but we are so far apart in age we have little in common.

Oh, did I mention Adam is having a sleepover tonight?  He didn’t either.  So while I cooked and cleaned Garrett took care of the details.  He made popcorn…

Ordered pizza and basically turned the living room into a sleepover paradise.  Lucky for us the only kids Adam invited were Holly and Luka so at least they are family and don’t expect my house to be spotless.

Also lucky for us, the kids were out before midnight which meant I got to get a full night’s sleep before the twins returned home, too!

This meant I was able to get up by 7am to start the house cleaning early.  I was working on Adam’s bathroom when I heard the ruckus downstairs.

“You know, Liv, these two cookie monsters sort of look like Adam and Lucy…except they are WAY too big!”

“Yeah, you know I think they are imposters, Penny.  They should be TICKLED until they tell us where the real Adam and Lucy are!”

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

I threw on some clothes and ran downstairs.

“PENELOPE AND OLIVIA HANKS!  You guys weren’t supposed to be home for another three hours!  I’m not ready yet!”

“Jeez, Mom…I guess we could go to the strip club for a few hours if you’d like?”

“Get over here.  I’m so glad you are home, girls.”

“Mama you look great!  How are things?  We have so much to tell you!”

I made coffees and we all sat around and talked.  Penny loves medical school and Liv is pleased with her art.  Liv seemed a bit more quiet than usual but let’s face it, they just drove 10 hours in a blizzard!  Penny more than made up for her sister.

“I’ll grab your things and put them upstairs in your room.  Oh, I got you both an early Christmas gift to wear at our family gift opening on Christmas morning.”

I am fairly sure they did not bring that many bags with them when they left.  And I know I did not send them with six cases of Ramen noodles…

Ah well, such is life with college girls.  Garrett will be thrilled when he gets home tonight!

  1. The photos in Mollie’s gallery are awesome! Did she actually take them in-game? I never played with a professional photographer. I’ve always loved the shots of each of the kids as toddlers, too.

    As always, Adam and Lucy are adorable. I love the shot of Adam boosting Lucy up so she can reach the cookies. Ingenious. 😀

    • Yes, all of the photos were taken in game. Most were taken by Mollie but I also used some of my other level 10 photographers to snag shots from around the sim globe.

      I have seriously been waiting to use that pose in Pose Player for literally 2 months. This is why Adam has always been a cookie monster. Just for THAT moment. I’m so glad you liked it.

  2. I swear Mollie’s parents are secretly rabbits. Get these two some birth control or something lmao!

    I love all the photographs, so pretty!

    that is a whole lot of luggage XD

    • I don’t know what Vic and Liddy have going on over there. She’s like a baby factory. I’m pretty sure she is trying to create a small army.

  3. I love how Garrett is obsessed with making sure to provide for a good life of his offsprings. Even though both him and Mollie are still young, he’s right – they won’t be here forever… Let’s hope they both get to see their grandkids though! I’m always worried that the parents of my Sim will pass away before they can become grandparents…

    Adam and Lucy were absolutely adorable as the cookie monsters! I love your use of poses. We all know EA’s animations by heart already and what else can I say – it’s getting pretty much boring on the long run :-/

    I’m starting to lose track of Liddy & Victor’s children… This last one truly is a looker! Hopefully I’ll get to see him all grown up in some of the future chapters… 😉
