Log 5s: Room to Grow

Life seemed particularly grand for Edelweiss and Malcolm. So much so that they felt like they were getting away with something. They were happier than they’d ever been.

Being apart for part of the day made their together time that much sweeter. It was somewhat difficult to concentrate on housework, but I suppose that bit was nothing new. 🙂

I miss seeing you all day.
“Kinda hard to do the dishes when you do that, Malcolm.”
You smell nice.
“But you smell nice.”

“You do dishes all day at work,” said Malcolm. “Let me get these.”

“I won’t stop you,” Ede surrendered easily. Dishes were not her favorite. “Meet you upstairs?”

It was a special day – their littles were graduating from the bassinet. Malcolm finished up the dishes and went up to spend a precious last few moments with baby-them.

I think I'm going to miss these baby toes.
Even the grump smiles for Daddy

And then it was time. They each monitored one kid ~ Forsythia began to change first.

Edelweiss got so excited, she had to turn away.

Whatever she looks like, the girl that emerges from that hamster ball will always be beautiful to me.

And poof! Out Forsythia pops, wearing a hat a lot like her pop’s. ;D

5s Forsy 4

She rolled the Good trait (uht oh – Grandma might not like that) and the Rambunctious Scamp aspiration.

Somehow young Forsythia didn’t get the memo that she was a twin – when her brother started to sparkle, her fantasy of being an only child began to crumble.

Who the heck is that?
Wait.. Who the heck is that?

“Guys? There is clearly another child here.”

Fennel rolled the Music Lover trait and the Artistic Prodigy aspiration. He didn’t share his sister’s sibling discomfort (I’ll never understand how/why that works), so he didn’t get what the big deal was.

Ede tried to put her daughter’s mind at ease.

5s who the heck is that 2
“Brothers can be really cool and fun – you’ll see!”
Someone is not entirely convinced.
Someone is not entirely convinced.

Forsythia eventually gave up her grump and decided to delay judgment, for now. Fennel, aware that he’d obviously missed something, looked to his pop for guidance.

Should I be worried?
Should I be worried, Dad?
Naw, you got this.
Naw. You got this, son.

Malcolm and Fennel gave the girls some space & took some time to get to know each other better. Malcolm was super excited to have a music lover in the family!

"If you're interested in learning to play piano, I can teach you a few songs."
“This is really great! I can teach you piano, or violin!”

This was nearly all autonomous, by the way. It was so cute. I thought I might die. But, I didn’t. Whew.

The kids were both hungry as heck, so they tactfully freed themselves from the loving attention of their respective parent and returned to their scene of entry: the kitchen.

At first they just sat together in silence, but Fennel couldn’t help but crack a joke. Then Forsythia offered a heartfelt compliment. And before long they were sharing huge smiles with their huge slices of cheesecake.

5s cheesecake yay
Maybe this won’t be so bad after all.

  1. Ohmigosh! Forsythia has eyes the color of her uncle’s and the shape of her daddy’s! And she grew up in a hat and hiking pants… how cool is that! And look at little Fen’s marshmellow t-shirt! Too cute! Way to luck out with the traits! That’s fantastic!

    We love our new niece and nevvy. We think we might die with cuteness, too. We’ve got oxytocin overload, but we think we’ll be ok. Eventually.

    (Oh, when Coop was visiting, Gray [one of our Good roomies] had to go cry it out in bed! He was so sad to have evil in the house, even though she was the epitomy of graciousness!)

  2. Awwws<3 Forsynthia's gonna look just like her momma. ^.^ I just had a child age up with that hat — it's such a cute look! Fennel and Malcolm are adorable together…ahh, I just love this chapter so much!

  3. Oh, wow! Forsythia is beautiful! Her face is so adorable. I can’t wait to watch her age.

    I always think it’s funny to see who likes their siblings and who doesn’t. I suppose it’s a random algorithm, but who knows?

    Really great update and I’m super excited to see how Ede and Mailman are as parents to children.

  4. I never noticed the “hamster ball,” that’s really funny looking. Did you pause at just the right moment or did you slow down time in the game? (I knew how to do that in Sims 2 but not in Sims 4).

    In RL there have been times when things were so good I felt like I was getting away with something.

    With Forsythia having the good trait it is funny about her not liking her brother immediately.

  5. If real kids were this easy I’d almost reconsider my decision to never have any.


    But in a tale like this, they’re a super addition.

    (And they actually clean up when you tell them the first time!)

  6. Forsythia is quite a character! She’s good and grumpy! 😛 Maybe she just experiences bouts of righteous indignation. HA!

    Edelweiss was radiant when Forsythia was spinning out of the bassinet, too. Clearly she was excited… and don’t even get my started on Malcolm and how cute it was that he took off to go talk with Fennel.

    Then, without any surprise, the twins excused themselves to go get food- DESSERT. LOL For some reason my legacy kids always end up eating cake for most of their meals.
