Ranfords, Days 6 - 10: The Bathroom Baby




What do you do when you are just married and allowed to touch each other for the first time? Ranfords did that. The whole day 6.



At one point their making out and baby makin' activities were RUDELY interrupted by cockroaches. That happens when you annoy people and they kick your trash can, Zachary. 
This screenshot also illustrates the state the lot was at this point. Its partly my fault, I had never played with reed spawner in residence lot, only in community ones. I had no idea how quickly they take over everything. 



Anyway, back to baby makin'. ;) At early morning day 7 they were FINALLY lucky enough to hear a chime! 
Random townie judged them. 
(Phone in the background was deleted, I just needed it so Viola can call Lindsay and make their friendship stronger before going back to no electricity rule. Till Zach masters mechanical skills, Viola and Lindsay have next to no chance  to meet each other; I didn't want them to loose their friendship status. Who knows, Lindsay may be used as cult follower one day.) 



Viola got fundie-approved makeover and started to harvest reeds. She wanted to clear all garden before baby is born. 



There were other things needed for baby: a crib, first and foremost, and a changing table, and toys. Only one way to get these things: make them. Zach cried a bit before he gave in and started to learn how to make furniture. It will be long hours spent at basket weaving station till he reaches creativity level needed to make a baby basket. 



He also had to chop and buck trees to build walls. Lifes hard! He hadn't even changed the clothes from wedding. 



But it was worth it! I guess? Anyway, Zachary finished the bathroom walls, changed toilet to regular one and installed a sink. Then Viola came up with an idea to move the refrigerator (they use it to store food, but its not working, at least thats how I justify its existence), grill and stumps to make an improvised kitchen area. Cozy? 



Of course, Viola did all the womans work at... house. Not much to do , when you only have one room, though. 



FIRST BUMP!!!!!111!1!



And Zach learned how to make a refrigerator from reeds! Well, its more like just a box, but Viola still thinks he is AWESOME! 



Zach tried to learn fishing. He was #blessed to catch an old boot that cant be eaten, but can be used as amazing decor. Very traditional. 



See? It looks good in their new living room! 
Viola kept sweet. 



And tried to fish for herself. 


Zachary at least got better at hunting (sorry, Rufus). And he was still making furniture. So Viola just focused on her duties: reed harvesting,cooking, and birthing.



And she succeeded! It was hard, and took 3,5 days, but she removed every single reed from the lot, and the damn spawner as well. Phew! 

It was also the first day of Autumn. A new season of year. It would be so neat to start for a new season of life right now, Viola though while picking nuts and berries in forest. 



And she was indeed blessed when her wish came true. Who needs homebirth, if you can forestbirth? 

Zach was, as usually, pretty useless.



Viola gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She considered the name Forest, but ultimately decided to leave it for one of the future blessings. This baby was named Reed.



This is Zach. Celebrating. You know, first born son makes him all adult and manly.  



Oh, and Zach managed to make a baby basket. It was too cold to keep baby outside, so they put him in only room with a roof. 
You know, bathroom. 



Welcome to the world, Reed Ranford. Im sorry, kiddo.

I love that they named the baby Reed!

Is all the Medieval stuff from a mod? You have all this cool stuff I've never seen. Including the tire swing! Baby's outfit is adorable, too.

Most of these things are crafting stations from Sun&Moon's Star Factory  here: http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=240. They are not really mods, but they add so much to the game. Ranfords use the Giving Tree, Wild Mushrooms, Wild Berry Bushes, Wild Hives, Basket Weaver and A Game's Afoot (for hunting). The site has other cool stuff like HUGE collection of plants, spices, pigs, chickens, cows (!), Miners' rocks, and even that thing that allows sims to carve their own Halloween pumpkins. Theoretically for playing medieval neighborhoods, but everything they have works for modern settings as well. 
The tire swing can be found here and is truly genial: http://modthesims.info/d/268218
The baby outfit is a default replacement found here: http://modthesims.info/d/392728. There is a mod that allows players to change baby outfits, but it seemed too complicated to me. 

(I started to type this response more than hour ago, but someone sat next to me on a bus, so I put down my computer and pretended not to exist.)

      Oh man, that was me. So sheltered; so much of what the school kids laughed about went right by me.

      We had a Dodge Caravan with wood paneling and I did wonder why they kept asking me if I "had a woody."  Again, years passed...

      The boys weren't terrible, they were just adolescent boys, but a lot of my early "smut" knowledge was due to girls pooling info when we realized why boys were laughing, lol.  (My mom shared all the real, anatomical knowledge, but not so much with the slang.)

      I grew up with the Irish Rovers' The Unicorn Song, which says the same thing. 

        Hide contents

      A long time ago, when the earth was still green
      And there were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
      They'd run around free while the earth was being born
      But the loveliest of all was the unicorn

      There was green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      The loveliest of all was the unicorn

      Now god seen some sinnin' and it gave him pain
      And he says, "stand back, I'm going to make it rain"
      He says, "hey, brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do
      Build me a floating zoo"

      And take some of them green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      Don't you forget my unicorn"

      Old Noah was there to answer the call
      He finished up making the ark just as the rain started fallin'
      He marched in the animals two by two
      And he called out as they went through
      "Hey, Lord"

      I've got your green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
      I just can't see no unicorn"

      Then Noah looked out through the driving rain
      Them unicorns was hiding, playing silly games
      Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring
      Oh, them silly unicorns

      There was green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Noah cried, "close the doors 'cause the rain is pourin'
      And we just can't wait for no unicorns"

      The ark started movin', it drifted with the tide
      Them unicorns looked up from the rock and they cried
      And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
      And that's why you'll never see a unicorn, to this very day

      You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      You're never gonna see no unicorn


      LOL there's a whole dance that goes along with that song, it's a family fav, especially after a few drinks!

      Did we know she has a store where she sells stuff? Bracelets, t-shirts, a hat, etc. It's part of her website.
