Smiths Part Six: Keep On Keeping On

As I mentioned previously, I've been mainly playing the Bancrofts, as I wanted to get Michael and Mary married. In a comment on the Married! post, I mentioned that Madison is also married! She is now a Walker. You'll get to meet husband Paul in the next post.

So, the Smiths. Since you can't move teens out early like in Sims 2, life has been pretty mundane. Eliza and Emily have a week left in-game before they age up. I'll probably kick them out, so that Nicole can have a final pregnancy... since aging freezes whilst you're pregnant (which I find a pain in the ass), Edward is a fair bit older than her, when they started off the same age.

I may have mentioned this already, but Eliza wants to be an awesome musician. Her main instrument is the violin.

Eddie and Elijah aged up! Eddie making a slight DERP face.

Eddie's a painter. He can't wait to capture God's wonderful creation!

Sometimes Eliza just feels so *inspired* she starts playing in the kitchen.

Carrot cake for breakfast? Whenever Nicole makes a group meal, I put any leftovers in the fridge. The family often help themselves.

Although Emily's normally a conscientious student, sometimes things can be a bit last-minute. No-one's perfect, after all; we live in a fallen world.

Nicole gets bored alone at home, so she goes to visit the Markhams. Becky and Callum appear to not be in school. Becky seems rather warmly dressed; they live in Oasis Springs which is a desert-y neighbourhood (the Smiths live in a more verdant area).

Here's Roseanne (I realise I missed a trick by not calling her husband Dan or her other kids Darlene and DJ*. She has two sons and one daughter. The other son is Alistair).

In another post I mentioned how Energised Sims tend to work out wherever they are... the kitchen isn't exactly the best environment for push ups.

Nicole goes out fishing; there are some Baking recipes she cannot cook because she doesn't have any fish.

She soon gets bored however and starts singing God's praises.

When you all arrive home at once... you get a big blob of Sims. No wonder Eliza's looking uncomfortable here!!

Emily also decides to do some woodworking. (Maybe I'll have her be a bit rebellious when she leaves home? As in... possibly (shh)... PANTS?)

So, 5 pm. Edward arrives home from work...

... Eliza has just taken a shower and is taking a selfie...

... Eddie's putting a book away in the study...

... Elijah is in the bath (I forgot what Emily was doing) ...

... Evelyn is playing the piano...

... and Elliot is napping on his bed.

Yo, Eliza, you have a table behind you. Why are you standing up to eat your baked potato? How can you eat it standing up?

Sorry this was rather dull. Hopefully things should improve once the oldest two move out.

* I haven't actually watched very much of Roseanne. My mother introduced it to me a long, long time ago and we only had Season 2 on DVD. I need to watch it more!!

      I had no idea that was an extension on Allison’s skirt, but she confirmed it in the comments. It is WILD that her husband exerts that kind of control over her already-modest wardrobe. What a huge disappointment: she’s already having to alter herself to please her husband.

      Her husband looks so harmless and demure whereas she looks feisty and yet... Apparently not.

      And ugh the skirt extenders being used just look so horrible. It would be one thing if they matched, but again: they just look like a wardrobe malfunction where a slip is showing that shouldn't be. I feel like the extender makes the skirt MORE revealing. I feel worse for Allison by the day, a lifetime of waiting only to get a dud.

      I found this etymological reason for the name:

      Interesting anecdote for you all: I drove over a bridge the other day that was named after one Sparkle [insert last name here]. I looked her up, wondering why the bridge was named after her, and she was a longtime and honored member of the city council. That was my lesson never to underestimate people because of their names.

      Surprisingly the book they are all given before marriage on sex is very, very VERY thorough and detailed, and includes at least some information on preventing pregnancy. I can’t remember the name.... maybe “Made for Each Other? “ something like that. Big emphasis on women’s pleasure too. Plus of course, they all have smart phones, finding out about pregnancy prevention is pretty easy now. And I assume the less stringent couples could just have any of the many forms of sex that don’t include possible pregnancy during possibly fertile times? 

      Do you mean the book Josh got on camera? Before the Wedding Night or whatever? By Ed Wheat?

      I should have been clearer. I don't think the babies are gross. I think the exploitation of them is. It really bothers me that people readily post pictures of their children to garner attention for themselves. Abbie didn't even wait a single day before dressing them up and shoving a camera in their faces. Why can't she just enjoy her new babies? Why is Shaun okay with this?

      Shaun is okay with it because she's leaving him alone.

      I got Tobias right too! Arrested Development memes, here we come!!

      I think ppl saying Christians can't use Jewish Biblical names is ridiculous. Christians have been using biblical names forever. The Old Testament is half their holy book! I can see an argument for not using Yiddish names if you don't speak Yiddish but overall i think appropriation applies to things that make money. 

      I side eye white ppl who name their kid Africa or India though. Cringe.

      I side-eye people who name their children ridiculous names: Speedy Jack, Pepsi, Toeknee for example. But we all have our own ideas!
