The last post ended with the announcement of the birth of baby Ashlyn Walker, firstborn grandchild, daughter of Madison Walker (nee Bancroft) and her husband, Paul.

We now go over to Michael and his wife, Mary. She also got pregnant very quickly. (Sims 2 doesn't allow for story progression so every household is at a different stage, Madison's siblings don't age when I don't play them).

Mary's natural hobby is Sports. So, she decided to play soccer in the backyard with Michael. It's OK to play with your spouse, just not in a competitive team.

Labour!!

I said in a previous post that I'd have a K name theme, in honour of Karen. It also allows for (some) kreeaytive spellings. So... welcome to the world, baby Kaleb!

When's the best time to conceive your next baby? Straight after giving birth!!

Let's pop back over to the Walkers. "Mom... you've had your babies. Let me hold my own."

Karen randomly turned up one evening, used the toilet... and left. Didn't invite her over. (I think this can happen when you've got multiple entrances to your house (this one has the main front door, and one that opened into what I consider the basement area. I've gotten rid of this door now).

Madison also conceived again. Here are Madison and Paul celebrating Ashlyn's birthday. (The bookcase is a fancy career reward, from the Education track funnily enough. I used cheats to obtain it. With most bookcases you can only read Cooking, Mechanical and Cleaning books... this offers books on all the skills. Children can read all of them, and with the skill gain rate they can easily reach level 8, where you can get a scholarship for college).

This is the "basement" underneath the main house. I converted it into a playroom for the kids. It's also got the dog bed.... I forget what the dog's called. I may have more than one pet, IDK...

Skipping a few photos... Madison's in labour again.

And... Ashlyn is joined by a little sister, Brynlee! (I thought that'd be a good fundie-style kreeaytiv name). 

snapshot_a7b35799_e7c1dd19.jpg.c8632ea441a5c1f6c47fd4c18526d65c.jpg

Looks like Ashlyn's going to grow up!

Back over to Michael's place. Mary started a fire. Whoops.

snapshot_47b35017_07c1e6eb.jpg.8390725d0e7f40f84250a386fd7c6c5d.jpg

Sims are stupid. You tell them to move AWAY from the fire... they do so... and then RUN STRAIGHT BACK. You FOOLS. She didn't have a fire alarm at the time (she does now!) so she decided to take matters into her own hands.

snapshot_47b35017_67c1e847.jpg.c4b6530eb1d2280840d4e48c9189cfee.jpg

I think Mary may be preggers again...

snapshot_47b35017_e7c1e97d.jpg.17abb0c7c5f50d6584034ef3bc8212c6.jpg

"We can do this now we're married... mmm, Mary, you are so beautiful and Godly!" (No dry-humping at a golf course in this game, sadly :output_eeMbjt:)

snapshot_47b35017_27c74a66.jpg.805f264c3406e0db8a3fb1aa202bf04b.jpg

Mary eventually gave birth to twins Katherine and Kyle (sorry for your weirdly-spelled name, Kaleb). The house was too small for two children's rooms, so I used motherlode and moved them to a BIG house. Here are the kids in their bedrooms.

So, to summarise:

Madison is married to Paul Walker. They have two children. Ashlyn is a child and Brynlee is still a baby.

Michael is married to Mary (nee Cole). They have three children. Kaleb is a child, and twins Katherine and Kyle are toddlers. 

I need to play the unmarried college siblings. I don't actually like the college aspect of Sims 2 University, it just gets tedious after a while (class, assignment, eat, sleep, bugger else to do). I've mainly been playing another custom neighbourhood recently and I haven't attached a college sub-hood to it for this reason.

      They are not - they are living in the (apparently) church-owned duplex that they moved into when Derick went to "ministry skool" last year.

      I also reject the author writing her family's beliefs are not to blame for their practices. The beliefs are the root of their extremism, their patriarchy, their judgement of other "gentiles" not being holy enough, her brother's abuse of her (calling her a whore), their trust in God instead of man (especially with medical matters), and the idea of Mormon men having a priesthood which elevates them to a status that for certain unhealthy personalities can be dangerous. 

      Yeah, same. I understand why she wanted to downplay that, but I can't help feeling that if the family wasn't so religious, than they never would have become so extreme.

      TX is going to eventually become a blue state (or at least a deeply purple state) , and once it does, it will be impossible for Republicans to steal another election. I'm not saying it's going to happen soon, or in time for my baby angel Beto to beat out the Zodiac killer (I do have a feeling Beto will be more successful in 2020 on a broader scale, but who really knows at this point) . It will take years, probably decades, but it will happen in my lifetime for sure.

      BRB, just moving to Texas real quick to vote for Beto.

      The Dillards are the only family without any reported income and with a tuition payment due. I think given their propensity/history of supporting debt free living, an explanation for how they financially survive and how they are financing law school is totally warranted. Since Derrick claims they were never paid from TLC and beyond a day or two of substituto teaching, there has been very limited income earned in years...Are they Bonnie and Clyde? IS leave and cleave more than an insider, family joke?

      Student loans? Student loans and a pay-out /settlement from TLC to keep him from suing? - not that he’d have cause, but a $100k to f*off is less of a headache, and pocket change to them. Savings Jill has from years of being on the show / appearances etc.. Maybe he is paid to keep the books for the Duggar enterprises. ? Combo of some/all of the above ? If school is covered through loans - they could get by pretty cheaply. Are they living in a Duggar property?

      I honestly find it kind of weird that the stuff he says is considered so very shocking or scandalous and all.

      It's not. We're not talking about it because it's shocking or unusual to hold those beliefs. As @formergothardite put it, the only thing surprising here is that he's being public about his beliefs. But I do think that it should be scandalous that he holds racist and misogynist beliefs, no matter how common those beliefs are. And given the more polished image that he and Jinger have projected, I think it's important that people realize how terrible they still are.
