Ranfords, Days 12 - 19: Now With More Bathroom Babies

Note on pregnancy: I turn aging off during pregnancies. This means shorter/somewhat more realistic spacing between children. I sometimes use that method in my regular neighborhood to get kids with small age gap. For Ranfords I decided to that with every single pregnancy. I didn't consider some issues like how slow kids will grow up if aging is turned off so often. Kinda regretting it now, but on the other hand, they will probably end up with more blessings that way. 
I also have triplets and quads mod, so there is about 15% chance for three and 5% chance for four blessings.     
Ok. Back to story. 

 

Even Zachary realized that if your wife almost dies, gets to second trimester of her pregnancy and falls asleep while standing, you should get yourself together and help around the house. He started with feeding grumpy and hungry Reed.

Reed was very upset about whole situation. 
"No potty! No!"
Zachary got upset too. I mean, what he is supposed to do with kid that refuses to be potty trained?! Its woman's job to know. Damn fire.

Speaking of fire, I felt guilty about putting grill inside and almost killing them all, so I downloaded Ranfords a proper medieval-ish stove. At morning, Viola used it to cook pizza.

She still didn't feel good enough and fell asleep in her plate. Zachary meanwhile changed Reed's diaper after boy had an accident.

Despite the hard times, all Viola was able to talk about was how blessed she was. Another arrow on the way!

On top of everything, both Viola and Zachary were constantly sick the whole autumn. They got healthy from time to time, but felt sick again five minutes later. Then winter came and it didn't get any better.

And Reed still hated potty training.

Happy #family having a dinner together.

Do you wanna build a snowman?

Oh no! Viola was freezing. Better run inside and scrub toilet till you feel better, honey.

Zachary was freezing as well, so he practiced his creativity skills inside. It will become handy later, when he will be able to wean more kinds of furniture.

Viola was just done with cleaning the toilet when she realized she was in labor. Oh my!

snapshot_66c7f738_26ced0bd.jpg.0921e2ee727cf0ddffc89c33f1e10733.jpg

 

"Zach, Zach - ZAACH! The baby is coming!"
"That's wonderful, dear."

snapshot_66c7f738_46ced0cb.jpg.c94c2f764a8eaa64fb43ef4ce0e87822.jpg

 

"Oh, wow - there is another one! Maybe I should have had the ultrasounds..."

snapshot_66c7f738_86ced137.jpg.3eecc0c5846c839a4d39dfbe963289dc.jpg

 

Yep. Thats right - two little blessings for Ranfords! Both boys. Welcome to the world, Forest and River. Wait until your mommy washes her hands, then she will pay attention to you, guys. Maybe.

Winter carried on, everything was under snow, Zach and Viola moved their tent inside and worried about their food stocks. 
Zach tried candle making* and didn't like it. Viola tried knitting** and really enjoyed it.

snapshot_66c7f738_06d15186.jpg.53847519addd94d8c766c8c2584dd890.jpg

 

Zachary often went to forest and stared into nowhere. 

snapshot_66c7f738_26d152a3.jpg.b015534982a04cbbfcd9724052ab24ab.jpg

 

When snow started to melt, it was clear that Viola was expecting again and that Zachary was slowly loosing it. 
"Why pregnancies are so long?! Nine months, that's insane! How many kids can you get that way? Ten, maybe fifteen. How are we supposed to be fruitful and multiply in these conditions???"

snapshot_66c7f738_66cec7b4.jpg.3e0a9166e84ffc3ec8b3494e910412ed.jpg

 

Viola did her best to be supporting helpmeet while Zachary went though mental breakdown and hallucinated a SECULAR MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL!!! 
Poor thing, he must be in very bad state to see that kind of horror.

snapshot_66c7f738_86cec71f.jpg.3beb0dc438665c34a2d1772b60b268d8.jpg

 

After the incident Zachary cried from embarrassment, and Viola gave him an adoring look and forced smile. Probably, the creepiest expression I have ever seen on sim. 

snapshot_66c7f738_86cec735.jpg.53f0c905256422de66bacda5c631fee5.jpg

 

Unfortunately, twins were not the good babies Viola prayed for. They cried a lot, often for no reason, and Viola had to, like, actually parent them.

"Blessing?"
"Blessing."
"Yeah, very neat."
"Can't wait to have another one."

snapshot_66c7f738_e6d199af.jpg.e7a76156fd61d93d0112de5cede72835.jpg

 

Guuuys? Stop. Right. Now. 

snapshot_66c7f738_46d18125.jpg.4711d7577d022999b11eb2b3d5c879bd.jpg

 

"Zach? I... I... don't know... if only cough or... in labor."
"That's nice, honey."

snapshot_66c7f738_46d19713.jpg.81529f6b2247291cee58a0aacfa11f62.jpg

 

Turns out, Viola was indeed in labor. Zach slept though it all. 
Hey, don't hide in corner, Viola, show us the new baby. 

snapshot_66c7f738_46d19f02.jpg.698a181703957e182e542055397287f7.jpg

 

It's another boy! Red hair, blue eyes! Who could have thought? 
Welcome, Huckleberry Ranford, I hope your parents don't forget about you. 

snapshot_66c7f738_06d19f71.jpg.34195a5ae2232cbcfa15d8f2d87becbd.jpg

 

Viola was happy for the new little blessing arrow cutie, but she couldn't hide some disappointment. Even her genes were being submissive.

      I think the problem is that TLC knows that most of their viewership is coming not from people who want to watch a Duggar documentary, but from people who like the glossy, cheesy, People-Magazine-article-come-to-life style episodes. They're still not getting all that many viewers, but more than they would if they went for a documentary style show. TLC ceased to be 'the learning channel' many moons ago.

      At our wedding, I high-fived Mr samurai_sarah, and then gave him a pretty brief kiss. The reason? We had specifically asked the officiant to dispense with the "you may now kiss the bride". She forgot all about it and said "how about you give your bride a wee kiss now?". So, I high-fived him instead, and then kissed him.

      Maybe it is time for the officiants to do away with "you may not kiss the bride" and substitute

      You may now kiss your new spouse.

      I grew up in Manhattan.  Almost everyone I knew Catholic, and your home parish  was defined by your address.  My parents had friends that were of other religions, but no one ever asked.

       My first full time job in the 70’s had a home office in North Carolina and it was very odd to me to see office memos announcing that Mr. ABC was a Deacon at his Southern Baptist congregation.    A later job had the management change due to a corporate buyout and move from NYC to Cinncinatti and the same religious announcement were made in the corporate structure memos.

      I'd also watch an actual documentary about these people. And I'd love a birth announcement where the couple announces they're not going to find out the sex ahead of time, and requests gender neutral clothes. And then they announce that the mom will have regularly scheduled GYNO appointments and go to a birthing center to deliver the baby.

      For a reality show, there's not much real about it.

      Someone wanna tweet that to Derrick? :pb_lol:
