Timothy was sometimes overcome with how much he loved Cedar. His days alone gave him the opportunity to find unique ways to express his feelings.
School was really hard for Acacia. It was so boring! And she was so different from the other kids that making friends was really hard.
Fortunately, her dad was always there to cheer her up.
Cedar rolled the wish to “Try for baby” with Timothy. I tend to be a negative-population-growth type of Simmer, so after the first child, I’ll only have another to fulfill a Sim’s wish or aspiration. Since Cedar wished for it, she and Timothy tried… and succeeded! I was looking forward to Timothy’s reaction, since I remembered how excited he was when he heard that Acacia was on the way.
Even though he got a happy moodlet, he seemed so upset!
And even though she got a sad moodlet, Acacia seemed so happy!
Aside from a little morning sickness, pregnancy never really seemed to slow down Cedar.
On her days off, if Acacia was at school, Cedar worked on her aspiration of soul-mate.
With so much closeness, at times, Cedar and Timothy (literally) became one.
Acacia was home when the baby was born. At first she was a little bit sad, but her dad reassured her. She’s still his special pet.
And here’s baby Mesquite. He looks a lot like his dad.
Acacia’s childhood seemed to fly by! Cedar slowly worked her way up the astronaut career, and Acacia, while only earning a B in grade school, made good progress towards her artistic prodigy aspiration.
Aside from a little bit of boredom that comes from being a genius, Acacia was a very happy child. Before I knew it, her last weekend of childhood was here. We spent from Friday night through Sunday morning drinking anti-sleep potion and playing violin, drawing pictures, and narrating doll house stories… and finally, Acacia achieved her childhood aspiration of artistic prodigy!
Acacia loved her party. Mikaela, the family friend, came to the party. Acacia rolled “loner” as her teen trait, and “nerd brain” as her adult aspiration. As her dad’s a loner, it seemed fitting. And with her genius trait and love of chess, nerd brain is a great fit! I was wishing for a musical aspiration, to take advantage of her creative skills, but nerds can enjoy playing piano and violin, too.
Once the party ended, Mesquite transformed!
