The Sawadas: Mizuto (45), Katie (35), Jora (3 months old), Jada (3 months old), Jenna (3 months old)
The Sawada household had been pretty busy for the last three months, since the birth of the triplets. Katie and Mizuto had spent most of their free time seeing to the needs of their new babies. They were just now starting to get the hang of the whole parenting thing and falling into a workable routine.
Of course, Zuto couldn’t go too long without having a party. Just when Katie began to feel like they were getting a decent amount of rest and sticking to a schedule, he decided a house party to celebrate Independence Day was in order. When Katie questioned the wisdom of having a house party with three infants to tend, Zuto said, “You’re right–how about we only have one party this month to cover both Independence Day and my birthday?” Katie sighed through the preparations that Zuto cheerfully made and wondered how rude it would be to turn in and go to bed before the party began….
He was so grateful that Katie had allowed him to have the party that he encouraged her to accept Ana Ribeiro’s invitation to a little get-together the next weekend. “It’s only next door, Katie. If I need you, you aren’t far!” he reminded her. Katie went because she did like the idea of making friends with Ana. Ever since she’d moved in with their neighbor, Tom Austin, Katie had been curious about her. They both had young babies, so they had that in common. The get-together was an all-girl event, and very laid-back. They mostly chatted around the TV and had drinks, though Katie noticed that Ana didn’t drink any alcohol.
On her way back home from Ana’s party, Katie remembered that she hadn’t checked the mail and she was surprised to find a letter from her longtime friend, Sam McRae. She wondered if he’d been drunk when he wrote it–he told her he had feelings for her and wanted to know if she would take a chance on him! Katie decided to ignore the letter, and hope that he took her silence as a hint of the answer. She was so happy with Zuto that she’d never seriously consider starting a romantic relationship with anyone else.
In fact, things were going so well that Zuto and Katie decided that three babies weren’t enough–they both wanted to have another baby as soon as possible. They immediately began trying even though it had been only a few months since Katie gave birth to the triplets. They figured there was really nothing to hold them back–their finances were great, and they’d been able to take having the triplets in stride. If they absolutely needed help, they could easily afford a nanny or daycare. Besides–they didn’t mind the fun that came with trying to conceive!
- I wasn’t all that surprised when I saw this:
- After all, Katie is a family sim. I locked it, thinking, “Foolish girl–you just had three kids!” I was NOT prepared for this:What the–?! Zuto too? I couldn’t believe it. I almost never have both Sims in a relationship decide to have babies. Most of the time, it’s just one and I’m all “We gotta populate Plymouth Falls, folks!” So when they both rolled the want, I had to let them try, even though it was so soon after the other babies. I thought, “Eh, it won’t hurt–they may not conceive.” But guess what? They did. They don’t know it yet, but I do. So unless something weird or bad happens, Katie should be giving birth to another little Sawada around March 2014. Good grief.
- These letters that came with one of the expansions (remember, I rarely actually play the game, so I often don’t get to fully experience expansion packs until I play my ‘hood file, and sometimes I actually install more than one expansion at a time so I can never keep up with which feature comes with which expansion) are hilarious to me. I love the crazy love letters and the weird ones–it makes for a fun diversion.
