And so the waiting began. Would it be a girl? Would we have to go through this again? The morning finally arrived – early morning. Galaxy experienced the pre-parental panic.
I was curious to see if Meteor would panic as well, and at first I was disappointed, but then I looked at his queue and there it was. Sadly he took too long repairing the radio, so when the panic finally came up the babies were already born so it was dismissed automatically. Yes, that’s right, twins! After suffering with two fertile trait sims and not a twin between them, and missing the “you will have twins” bug since no one was pregnant before they fixed it. I finally got my twins. Meet generation 7: Harlequin and Michelangelo Pigglewiggle.
Despite having four adults in the house, the twins were needy. If left alone for more than a few hours, they cried. Harley cried from loneliness once. At least I think that’s why she cried – she wasn’t hungry and didn’t need her diaper changed yet.
At night I split the kids up so that only one set of parents would be bothered (whoever got woken up first got both the kids after that.) The other set would be allowed to sleep in.
Since they were so much work, when Nebula called on Meteor’s day off, he took the opportunity to visit his sisters and get away from the babies. Nebula and Nova had moved in with their cousin Cocoa who was alone now that Mo and Katrina has passed away. Meteor had a lovely afternoon with no crying babies and a chance to catch up with his sisters. He got home just in time to make dinner before the twins aged up.
I decided to treat them like adopted kids and used Darin’s stats rather than Sonja’s. He is the primary spouse after all and although it means the kids are twice as likely to end up evil as well, it seemed wrong not to use his traits. Harley got the Geek trait and Michel loves the outdoors. Both want to be Wiz Kids so that’s lucky for me.
It felt wrong not to have a party for their birthday so I had Meteor bake his patented hamburger cake for them to eat when they aged up. Which was fortuitous since despite being fed right before their birthday, they were both yellow from hunger. The cake was much appreciated.
After their dinner, I had them play their first chess game together while I got the bedrooms ready. Even though it was late, they weren’t overly tired yet which gave me time to redo the walls and floors and set it all up for them.
