I am getting WORRYINGLY in to this. Although I do feel a little bit like I’m sending all the women to the poorhouse, what with all the single women living in one long bedroom of single beds… (god I’m dreadful).
Anyway. A couple of days ago we finished with Adam shuffling off this mortal coil and the babies Lakeland and Cookie settling in to their cribs. Things have moved on quite considerably! Through a lot of work (neither Lewis nor Whitney had jobs, meaning they were at home all the time) they intensively potty trained both babies, as well as getting them talking and walking, which meant I got to pick all three of their childhood traits as they grew into children;
and then in to young adults. Luckily Lakeland was turning in to a bit of a looker, which would hopefully be useful for when he hit the town to find himself a lady.
Although I don’t know where he got his fashion sense from.
Amusingly, all physical looks seem to be coming from their father/grandmother. Although Cookie has her grandfather’s dark hair, their face shapes and the hair colour of both Lewis and Lakeland have been a pale pale blond.
I also decided that both of the children needed to improve their life skills early on, and set Cookie to improving her logic skills and Lakeland his creativity with painting. Lakeland decided the best way to paint was in his dressing gown and bunny slippers.
Whitney, Lewis’ second wife, aged up to elder levels as the twins aged up to young adult level, and Lewis followed become an elder a couple of days later;
I actually feel a little sorry for Lakeland. Because Cookie was born a few seconds earlier, she gets a big attendance at her aging up ceremonies. Unfortunately, poor Lakeland is left to celebrate alone.
However, his snappy style is all that matters and he set off into town to chat up a series of women. A few failures to romance resulted in him hooking up with one lady and on their second date (conveniently scheduled at his house) he asked her to marry him.
WHAT A SURPRISE! She said yes. He looks as thrilled and bewildered as she does and she really is going to have to get a new outfit as well as shift a few pounds post pregnancy. Which! Luckily happened.
A couple of sets of woohooing later and she was pregnant;
Which for an evening’s work was pretty good going!
The next step will be to see what gender the first 4th Generation baby is.
I’ve put Lewis back to work to get a bit of extra cash coming through, as Lakeland’s new wife didn’t bring much with her, but Whitney gets to live out her old age quietly practicing chess having fulfilled her lifetime wish of maxing out handiness and logic. Lewis has just 2 more points of logic to max out before he also gets his lifetime wish.
