I realize that this is two (almost three) days late. I ask that you forgive me and accept my olive branch.
Liliana and Rosaline are incredibly needy babies. They work their parents ‘round the clock taking care of them. Fortunately, the day after they’re born is Spooky Day, so Max and Kitty are free to spend that day together with their new bundles of joy.
The new parents are so busy that they don’t attend any of the many parties they’re invited to. Max does find time to read the paper announcing the birth of the Dreamer’s first child, a boy. Beyond that, nothing of note happens.
Hey, Max! Guess what!
Max rubs a hand over his face and reaches for another cup of coffee. “What?” he mumbles grouchily. It was his turn to take care of the twins last night
It’s the twins’ birthday! 😀
“Grow beautifully, my pets,” Kitty says, placing the parcels, uh, I mean, babies, on the floor of their nursery.
I’m so excited! ^_^
“That’s wonderful, Minion. I’ll be sleeping if the girls need anything.” And Kitty leaves to take the first good sleep since the twins were born.
What do you look like?!
Well, uh…you take after your daddy…clearly. Let’s see your sister.
Nope, definitely identical…and you’re both clones of your daddy…which might actually be interesting on females…hmmmm…
“There are my gorgeous girls!”
Max strides into the room, yanks one twin off the floor, and tosses her into the air. She seems to enjoy it. He repeats with her sister until they’re both best friends with him.
“Who’s my gorgeous girl? Yes, you, my dastardly dear!”
Well! You’re in a good mood! And you’re home so early! 0_0
“Yes, well, I was promoted to Division Manager, I was given the rest of the day off, and my daughters aged up beautifully. So, yes indeed, I am in a rather pleasant mood.”
“Indeed. Now, darlings, I must leave you two. I have several meetings to hold.” He watches them play for a moment before rounding around.
“Yes, you will order all the toys my girls desire! Blocks, walkers, play pen, xylaphone, everything! I’ll be home at 8pm.” Max heads for the door. “Oh, and Minion, don’t disappoint me.”
“That’s quite enough of that, Minion.” Kitty’s had her nap and is watching her daughters play.
“Max gave you a list of toys?”
Yep…it’ll cost a fortune…>.>
“No matter.” Kitty thinks for a moment. “Minion, I want you to call a baby-sitter. I’ll be out for only an hour, but I believe I want to get back into acting.”
“Oh, yes, when I was in my prime, I was the Golden Girl.”
But why acting?! You could work on your LifeTime Wish and-
“Oh, darling, I accomplished that right after the twins were born while chatting to that charming repairwoman.”
She smiles coyly before striding out the door.
This family strides a lot…Baby-sitter! Why aren’t you inside? And why are you playing with the Paparazzi?! There are screaming babies in here!
*blissfully ignores the disembodied voice*
Later that evening…
“Minion tells me that you’ve decided to reinvigorate your acting career, my love,” Max says while making up dinner.
“Oh, yes, I applied and got a position as an extra for Clark Bellamore’s next Romance.” Kitty washes out her coffee cup. “I thought the girls were old enough now, and it’s been something I’ve wanted to do for ages, so…”
“Very well, dear,” Max hugs her and smiles. “As long as you’re happy, it shall be fine.”
They smile and make out for the next half hour.
Guys…you’re too cute…you’re supposed’ta be evil! 😡
And now, for something completely different!
Behold cuteness! Dinah greeting Lilianna! ^_^
Note: Hope that makes up for the lateness! The next chapter should be on time, as the big project that’s sucking up all my time is due this coming Wednesday.
Max really is an awesome sim daddy! All but one of his wishes involves his girls. The one wish is to get another cat. >.> We’ll see…though I would like kittens at some point…hmm…
The Score sheet has been updated to reflect the recent influx of points. The Family Album has also been updated with pictures of the girls. They actually are identical. I’ll have to show a picture of them side-by-side in-game soon.
Thanks for reading! ^_^
