Edens Year 15: Cracks in the Foundation?

neurogirl

120 views

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! It's been the longest time away because I moved apartments and got two new headships (husband and PUPPERS, a 10 lb white fluff named Princess Peach). Anyways, let's recap:

Eva Johnson married Adam Eden when they were both 19 (in Jan of 2010). They immediately moved into a 3-bed, 2-bath home in the suburbs and started procreating for the Lord. Due to various types of expansions they now have 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 11 children:

Genesis (g) 10/10 Honeymoon Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exodus (b) 9/11

Leviticus (b) 11/12

Numbers (g) 2/14

Deuteronomy (g) 5/15

Joshua (b) 6/16

Judges (b) 10/17

Ruth (g) 1/19

Samuel (b) 3/20

Kings (b) 6/21

Chronicles (g) 10/31/22

plus their newest precious blessing on the way in 2024! That's a grand total of 11, and Eva delivered every one of them. *smile* (For the record, that's an average of 14 months between babies - not quite Courtney Rogers fast, but definitely Michelle Duggar fast)

2024 started off happily, as #12 Ezra was born in Feb! Welcome to the world, Ezra! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you!

Not that Eva or Adam would be around to actually see what the Lord has in store. While Genesis and Exodus held down the fort, Eva and Adam got right to trying for lucky #13.

And trying...

And trying...

But God was just not blessing them as quickly this time. 

In the meantime, Samuel (#9) turned 4 years-old! A big birthday for little Edens, marking the transition from toddler to child, and moving out of the nursery into the girls or boys dorm.

Sadly, as Sam is kid #9, no one remembered to take a big-kid picture of him :( 

There were now too many kids to keep everyone eating and sleeping on the same schedule. The kids stayed up all hours unsupervised, made messes, and talked back.

Ooh! In the above picture I believe that's Samuel in orange being disciplined. Maybe. Also notice the unkempt garden. Ain't nobody got time for weeding anymore.

Though the kids (and plants) were staying up past midnight, throwing fits, and/or being forgotten, Eva did find time to finish and publish her latest work, "Queen of her Castle- How to train up daughters with servant hearts so that Mama can rest". Good for her!

The training is really working on Deuteronomy. Notice how she cleans up dinner as the menfolk talk without her. How Jesus loves you, Deuteronomy!

Meanwhile, across town, Eva's sister Elsie (who lived with the family to help raise the kids until she married a lunatic in 2018 and divorced in 2021 with sole custody of their son Romano and now works as a caterer, wears pants sometimes, and uses the internet) invites the kids over in small groups to fill her empty house. Independent, loner Numbers (#4) is so delighted to be asked over that she even takes Elsie's trash out.

Finally, near the end of the year, Eva receives good news. After the largest gap ever, Blessing #13 is on its way! Praise be!

But is she slowing down for good? Will Adam and Eva even manage to reach 19 kids? Maybe even that elusive 20th missed by both the Duggars and Bateseseses? Will the kids continue to descend into ragamuffin-ness? How many beds can they fit into the boys and girls dorms? What are the young and middle kids even up to? And whatever happened to Leviticus' preaching 'career'? We'll just have to stay tuned. 

For now, Edens out!

The Edens are back! Yay!

I haven’t actually updated with the Smiths (my Sims 4 family) for nearly six months. I really should play them again. I’ve been playing with my other non-fundie saves, plus the Sims 3 saves... so many save games...

@mango_fandango the Edens are all I play, because it’s such a mammoth game and I really do want to see how many kids they have and what the oldest in particular get up to. It’s daunting though!

      “Allow him to grow up as he leads”?

      Umm, I would prefer that my husband already be grown up before we get married, thankyouverymuch, Kenny-boy.

      I know, right? If I wanted to raise a child, I'd birth or adopt one, not marry one. Anyone who is an adult sharing a house with me better be an actual adult who pulls their weight and is an equal partner. If I feel the need to constantly feed and clean up after someone I'll get a cat.

      I could not see her coupled up with Jesse Maxwell.  I doubt Jesse could land a fundie princess like Allison. 

      Why not!  :mouse-shock:  His big bro landed that ultimate fundie princess Chelsy, after all.   The lad could try. 

      Poor Jesse.   We all dismiss him for his lack of hotness compared to John.   I have a soft spot for him but my hopes of his doing a runner from Maxhell are dwindling.

      Allison is probably one of the few single women (other than his sisters) he gets to meet under the age of 80.  I'm sure he is pining after her.  And don't forget he had the initiative to clean up the woodpile all by himself and owns a house debt-free. 

      He's a catch.  A catch, I tell you!  :laughing-rollingred:

      I was perusing the RC-Lisa facebook pictures and all of a sudden I realized that RCjr and Mario Batali look freakishly alike- especially now that Jr has grown himself a mullet!  Does anyone else see it?

      I wish her critical thinking skills were as functional as her uterus.

      I think too much emphasis is put on Josh wanting to specifically be a lawyer at, what, 16? I did too at 16! (Spoiler alert: I'm not) Your average 16 year old isn't likely to know what their occupation will be in ten years. Most people I know changed majors a few times. And that's fine and normal.   I have exactly two friends that did what they said they were going to do career-wise in high school. 

      Yes it sucks he didn't truly have realistic options, but my sympathy for Josh was dried up when he assaulted five girls (that we know about). 

      I wasn't even 16! I took the LSATs, was a paralegal for 3 months and quit. I HATED it so much. 

      The rest I totally agree with you.
