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.

      All of these questions about homeschooling are bringing a very dark question into my mind. I wonder after how many generations, the offspring of the fundies we follow will be functionally illiterate? The first generation moms had high school or even college degrees. We look at Jill Rodrigues and her homeschooling as an example of a second generation, which we can get some idea of her schooling ability by the way Nurie writes. Nurie homeschooling a large brood of her own terrifies me.

      I worry about the exact same thing with the Rodrigues children. Someone once guessed that Nurie is writing at a 4rth grade level. I find that believable which is 4 years less education than the Amish! There is no way that is a functional adult level of education, not a snowballs chance in hell.

      The formulae are:

      F = 9/5 (C) +32

      C = 5/9 (F-32)

      The doubling of the degrees Celsius to get the Fahrenheit temperature is pretty close though.

      Oh y'all, I just can't with today's "men invented everything"  post.  This has got to be in the Lori Top Ten of Stupidity, (and she's just got to talk about a man's sex drive again).  

      Yeah...I just don't get it. What's the point?   OK...men have more testosterone. No one is arguing that.  Men have invented things. So have women.  Maybe men have invented more things, because traditionally MEN limited WOMEN in the things they could do (especially when it come to academics.) 

      And again, what with the football reference.  It seems Lori and Ken and always using football analogies and examples. Once a week (it was twice for Lori this week) one of them talks about football.  Ken once said child birth was no big deal and men could handle the pain because "football" so they know pain. 

      Despite all of Lori's protestation, I don't know anyone who thinks men and women aren't different. Of course they are different.  But what Lori is arguing is that makes men BETTER than women. No, Lori. It just means they are different.  And it doesn't mean women wish they were men.  I'm not jealous of my husband's or any other man's testosterone.  And i am really GLAD I wasn't born with a penis between my legs.  I can't even imagine how uncomfortable it is and all the adjusting and shifting one has to do as a matter of routine. :pb_lol:

      Yikes!! What is that supposed to mean?! That he's merely affirming the taste of Spanky's "God is sovereign..." or, something more nefarious?!  

      Sounded to me like it was claiming “god was punishing RC Jr by killing these two mothers of many, bereaving their families, etc.” Really f...ed up thinking.

      Clarification. Not my thinking, but the writer’s.
