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.

      So what happened to Laura De Maisie? Did they force her to leave? If Jana is suddenly courting the timing will be suspicious to me. 

      Like they're trying to stave off rumors. 

      I have conflicted feelings about Jana. I think she is solidly indoctrinated and won't accept a life that doesn't toe the line. I think the spunk and spirit was beat out of her with plumbing line when she was small, based on various comments made about how she was so naughty in childhood and got in trouble so much, juxtaposed with how emotionless and flat she is. 

      I do think she's been wistful about being married or at least able to join her married/dating siblings because she's still treated and viewed as a dependent child, no matter how much she runs that house. 

      I agree with whoever said she's shy and had a lot of responsibility in the house hence it may have been harder for her to meet possible "suitors" or have them notice her. 

      And of course her family relies on her so much they may not have encouraged her to get married. 

      But even if she doesn't feel excited about marrying a man, she has got to feel lonely in a sense. Or infantilized. One wants their independence at a certain point.

      So totally random, but when she mentions the 5AM body combat class, does she mean she gets up at 5AM to be able to make it on time or that the actual class starts at 5AM? My gym doesn't even open until 8PM. Probably because it is cheap af.

      This whole retreat puzzles me: the costs, the fact that it is in Europe and people have to travel across continents only to pray and drink fancy coffee for three days and the apparent Switzerland connection that Allison seems to have that was never mentioned before.

      On one hand I really want this retreat to happen just to see who could afford to attend and on the other hand I doubt she will get enough girls to pay the price and travel on their own across the world. Some of these SAHDs can hardly run errands without a male headship! Traveling to liberal/socialist/heathen Europe? Sure!

      Idk if TLC is gonna be happy about this one. There’s a big difference between flying the crew between Laredo and Arkansas, and flying between Cali and Arkansas. That’s a looong flight. I wonder if we will see much of them after the move for the logistics alone. 

      They will have their own show.

      I hope they pick another letter. I think it’s hard to find lots of names you love with the same first letter. Look at the Duggars. I bet they didn’t both love every one of those J names. 

      They clearly cared more about the J-pattern than about the actual names. Otherwise I can't explain why they chose Jinger. She was 'only' their 6th kid and they still had plenty of beautiful J-options: Johannah, Joy, Judith, Julia, etc.
