Huffman Legacy 2.4 – Family

“Wake up!” Sam heard the shout from deep within REM and was awake before he fully processed the words. He looked up, Karen was already out of bed, her eyes wide.

“It’s time?”

She nodded.

“I’ll call the taxi.”

As he dialed, Sam felt strange, like he was still dreaming. He gave the operator their address and then turned back to Karen.sam-phone

“How are you doing?”

She smiled thinly, “I think I’ll be very happy once today is over.”

The hospital was expecting them, so once they had checked in, they were quickly escorted to the birthing room.

Sam stood by as Karen laid down on the table. There was some fear – fear of the unknown , of unforeseen complications, but mostly he watched the proceeding with growing excitement.

This was it. The moment that two became four, became more than a couple . The moment they became a family. He’d heard the stories of his own birth how his father panicked and showed up at the hospital in his boxers. Mom had teased him terribly for that.

Sam wasn’t feeling panicked though, instead he was there with Karen every moment. He was there to welcome his daughters to the world.04-05-16_2-19-53 AM

Welcome Elisa, welcome Evelyn. 04-05-16_2-21-23 AM

Welcome to our family.

Authors Note: Sam did not panic. Karen was clearly unhappy about the whole birth thing, but Sam missed having the pre-parental panic. I think he was too excited. So there we have it – the start of generation 3. Two little girls. Names in this game are randomly generated by clicking on the random name button until I find a name I like. I picked Elisa (she was born first) and then was surprised to have to suddenly pick a second name. When Evelyn came up right away, I knew I would be using it. We can say they read the name in a book once and thought it would work with Elisa.

  2. I’m excited for the birth of the twins! Question, did he really avoid the pre parental panic, or was the emotion just drowned out by more positive ones? I would love to know if that’s an option for my Sims, because literally 100% of the fathers in my games have had that reaction, lol.

    • I think he did? He might have had the trait, but it didn’t express itself. Sadly I’m not 100% sure. This actually occurred earlier this month and I don’t really remember other than he was strangely calm about it. I’ve had sims sleep through their panic before so they never showed it. I wish I remembered if he even had the trait…

    • Haha – go for it. Although with this family, the real genetics don’t show until they hit teenager. I’m sad by how little kids show genetically when they have unusual features coming.

  3. I pick names for my Project L.E.G.A.C.Y. babies the same way! What a lovely surprise.

    And I can’t believe Sam was so calm about everything! My Mortimer freaks out each time Bella gives birth, even though he knows full well by now what the process is…

  4. Awwww!!!! I love Elisa and Evelyn!!!

    Ok, so you’ve never mentioned D2D in their book club or anything but are the Huffmans canon in the same world as Citizen and JoieWilders stories too? Or are you not really worrying about that? Just curious! Continuity between stories is always super fun!

    • Yes… it’s the same world – except someone like Sam or Arty could never exist as they are in my world. And Oasis Springs is just a bus ride away not a plane ride. So it’s a near copy? Maybe when the Huffmans look less bizarre they can show up properly.

      But in my world, Sam and Tobi are pretty good friend, they hang out after work together occasionally and they’re close to the same age. (I just made a three-way-conversion sheet – Sam is just a couple years older than Tobi). But yeah – D2D is a popular book, I think Sam and Karen just liked the name though. (It was randomly generated).
