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!



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



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



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. 




Zachary often went to forest and stared into nowhere. 



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???"



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.



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. 



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. 



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



Guuuys? Stop. Right. Now. 



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



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



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



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

      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!
