Despite having a family, sweet love between Eira and Adrian was not dying off. In fact, it was blooming. With three children and fourth on the way, every little moment of privacy was precious and they learned to cherish each other’s company even more as their younger selves.
Their romance was about little things because nobody had time (or money) for fancy dinners and extravagant dates. It was all about Sunday breakfasts, quick kisses before work and sweet talks when baby Damon finally fell asleep. And it was fine because everyone was busy or exhausted for the rest of the day. Eira was still working full time. It was expensive to build an actual house with actual walls and actual roof and it lowered the family funds. Not much, but with a baby on the way, Eira thought it was a good thing to have some savings. Just in case.
Poor Adrian got sick. He was acting strange for a while, giggling during the chess sessions, looking confused and so. Then he turned into a tiger. I freaked out a little bit but I let him rest and I made him drink orange juice and he got well again.
Eira decided to try cooking once again. She cut her finger, but luckily she is Snow White, not the Sleeping Beauty and finger injury didn’t put her into 100 years of sleep. The salad turned out delicious this time.
And soon, it was time for Damon to grow up! Time flies, huh?
He’s a cute little fellow. Looks like he’s from distant land of Simdonesia 🙂 I had no idea Eira went for international adoption, but I think it’s super cool. He rolled Cheerful trait and the Social Butterfly aspiration.
After taking a selfie with his mom and taking care of his basic needs, he was ready to talk to his sister, Melia. But I noticed kids were looking quite unhappy.
Garden was not looking its best, either.
With three neat sims in the household, it was a shame to have the house in this pitiful state. And since everyone was too busy to take care of the house and garden, I could only think of one solution.
And so, Adrian quitted his job and became a Stay-At-Home Dad. (It’s actually written in his job panel. How cute! )
Judging by his face, he won’t miss that job at all. 😀 Maybe the super agent career was not the right choice. All that research bored the plum out of him. Eira is much more satisfied with her job as Professional Pianist and she is doing much better as he did. He will be more help at home now, especially with the new baby.
Speaking of which….
Seconds after Adrian’s decision to quit his job, Eira went into labour. The rest of the family didn’t seem to mind (no cancelling the current action to be with mother, no panic attacks, no trips to hospital…) They’ve given zero plums. Well, except for Castor. He was openly annoyed by the outrageous sounds his mother was making.
But despite the lack of support, Eira gave birth to a healthy baby girl!
Her name is Devi (Indian mother goddess) and she is cute and sweet and everyone in the family loves her very much. Even Castor.
I really love the family dynamics. I love the kids’ constant chattering and spontaneous hugs. I love how they spend their days outside and how they always talk together despite doing different activities. I love how natural things flow in this family.
Adrian liked the natural flow, too. And since everything was going so great, he decided that his family deserved a little break. So he sent Devi to daycare and took the older kids on a small trip to local park, so they wouldn’t feel negleted. Eira had a day off, so she came along.
The kids were over the moon and they went to explore the pirate ship immediately.
Adrian joined their game as a sea monster and he really looked creepy as plum.
But Melia is not a faint-hearted lady. She is fierce and bold and she knows how to take care of creepy sea monsters.
But Castor was not there. Where did he go?
There he is. Looks like he has found a new friend. Sweet. Friends are great.
I let the kids to enjoy themselves. And while they were meeting new people and digging treasures and playing pirates, Adrian took Eira for a walk. It seems to me he had something important to tell 😉
“My love, hear what I have to say” he began, “I have no castles to offer but I’ve got one song. Only for you.”
Then, he took out the little book, with the sweet words he prepared for her: “I am not a rich man, Eira, but I have…”
constant and true.”
“…that has possessed me.
thrilling me true.”
“…my heart keeps singing
of my love
only for you.” ***
After he professed his love, he kneeled and he proposed marriage to his beloved.
She said yes, naturally. (No one could possibly resist a proposal like this, right?)
Looks like our Snow White was found by the one she loves.
