It's Been (Almost) A Year: The Bancrofts

I began this Sims blog on January 2nd 2018. A lot has happened since then! Births, courtships, weddings, jobs, college... 

Since updating my graphics drivers a while ago, Sims 2 is no longer supported by it. When I'd gone into Sims 2, the background had been flickering and dodgy, so I'm afraid that'll be the end of the Bancroft Saga. 

So, what happened to the Bancrofts whilst they were still playable?

We started off with Martin and Karen.

Karen quickly gave birth to her first blessings, Madison and Michael.

Not long after, she had blessing #3, Max.

Madison and Michael got into private school. After a couple of mishaps (see link), Karen eventually had baby #4, Mason, and then her second set of twins, Matthew and Martha.

The eldest three went on what some might call a vacation to Twiikii Island with Martin.

Karen mastered Cooking.

Madison and Michael went to college.

Madison was originally in a dorm with someone who would later become *very* important to the family, Mary Cole.

Karen got pregnant, again. That's a definite baby, Karen, not just a possibility. Surely you know what WooHoo means by now?

Another one went off to college.

Babies #7 and #8 arrived, Mark and Morgan.

Karen wrote a book, "How to Keep Sweet".

Baby #9 and girl #3, Mackenzie, arrived. And was promptly left on the floor. Standard.

Baby #10, Malachi, was adopted.

The eldest six all moved into a house together.

Michael got engaged to Mary Cole.

Madison and Michael graduated, and Michael quickly got married.

Not to be outdone, Madison also got married.

The next generation arrived quickly. This is Ashlyn Walker.

Kaleb Bancroft.

Brynlee Walker.

Kaleb was quickly joined by Katherine and Kyle.

Max married Lily Matthews.

Martin was briefly a PlantSim.

Max and Lily adopted their first child, Jennifer, whilst Lily was also pregnant with the first biological child.

Madison had babies #3 and #4, Carson and Daxton.

We had a bathroom baby! Lily having baby Ryan.

Mary made it ten grandkids with her fourth, Kaylee.

Max and Lily adopted another son, Christopher. Madison was also pregnant with #5.

      Not the standard fundie 'marry young and pop them out every year' life plan.  But then perhaps when you are a very, very privileged fundie the normal rules and expectations don't apply to you.

      I'm no expert, but I think that there isn't a single "standard fundie" playbook. Some fundamentalists are Quiverfull. ("As many children as God gives us.") Some aren't. Some are Calvinist, or uber-Calvinist. (All children are born full of sin. "Vipers in diapers.") Some believe that children aren't responsible for their sins until they reach the "age of accountability", which can vary depending on the belief system. Some have stay at home daughters and some don't. There are lots of other variations that I can't think of right now. On FJ, we do talk about the Quiverfull, SAHD fundies more often, but they aren't the whole picture.

      I have a habit of thinking of things in analogies, and the analogy I came up with for fundie variations is pizza. At most pizza places, you can order from the menu of set recipes (say a meat lover's pizza or a super supreme pizza), or you can make your own combo from the menu. You can even order a particular recipe, but vary it a little. (Like a veggie lover's pizza with no mushrooms, or a supreme combo with extra bell peppers.) It's still all pizza.

      So, some fundies may stick to a particular recipe (IBLP association, homeschooling, Quiverfull, and an IFB church), or they may create their system à la carte. They may vary their recipes, but they're still fundies. They have a fundamentalist approach to their beliefs and to life. Whether they're Protestant fundamentalists, Catholic fundamentalists, Calvinist fundamentalists, Baptist fundamentalists, or LDS fundamentalists.  

      Anyway, sorry for the wall of text. :my_blush: And I wasn't trying to rant at you, or lecture you, @Red Hair, Black Dress. You just gave me a nice platform to dive off of. :my_smile:

      Seems like Lawson got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. If so, I am so glad Jana is the one to slap it out. This seems like agency on her part.

      Outside of general fundiness and all that comes with it, I don't have a problem with Lawson or his antics. I just think opportunism that rides on the coattails of a blantant lie is uncool.

      I do think something is going on with him and the Duggars. I wonder if Jana is a foil. It could be anything as minor as him working musically with the younger Duggar girls or him possibly looking to court someone close (proximity) to the Duggars. I dunno. All I know is when the rumors were out (again) about him and Jana, the most I thought it could be was unrequited interest on his end. Because I am one of the ones who kinda buys into him and Jinger in a "failed" gettingtoknow-ship. Even if he is now into Jana , I could not see her settling for it. If waiting for that very special one is what she's doing, it is difficult to believe she would give into her sister's sorta ex (from her perspective). That may not inspire *sisterly affection*😉.But who knows. Stranger things have occurred with both these families. 

      Also, there is a part of me that thinks (and hopes) Jana created this account of her own volition with the encouragment of her sisters. Maybe they are helping her break free of some of those Gen2A Fundie chastity beliefs holding her back from finding her true self and inevitably a mate. Because let's be honest, that is usually end game with them. And I don't think it is a stretch to say that.

      Cackling out loud here.

      Of course, old VF snarkers will recall that Edgar A. Guest was one of Dougie's favorite poets, right up there with Rudyard Kipling.

      I had to update my location because flavoured sarcasm is too good not to share around.

      I’ve been using a menstrual cup for a few years now and love it. I started with the Divacup since it’s the easiest to get in the US but I now use my Lena that Bryony from Precious Stars Pads designed most of the time. I also have a small and large from Rebel Kate but those are cheaper made and softer (which causes it not to fully open sometimes).

      Like others said there is a learning curve. Before buying you need to know if you have a high or low cervix. Some cups are longer and work better with a high cervix. A Divacup or Lilycup is usually better for a high cervix whereas a Lena cup is shorter. I recommend checking out Bryony from Precious Stars Pads on YouTube. She discusses a lot of menstration issues, cloth pads, and reviews and compares a wide range of cup brands.
