Just a Feeling

Early morning woohoo is a wonderful way to start the day. 

We did have other things we were supposed be doing.

The kids had asked to go to the winter festival and the older boys had their prom later that day. Seriously, who schedules these things? The school prom and the festival should not be on the same day!

Taric did not seem to notice that we were running late. He was too engrossed in the game he was playing.

When we finally did make it out of the house it was afternoon and the weather wasn’t the best for the festival.

The girls were still keen to try out ice-skating for the very first time.

Although it turns out that all Loise can do at present is run around the rink. Alene seemed to be picking up skating easily however.

We were not the only people to brave the elements and attend the festival. Maeric and Niella were also there,

as was Perrin, whom I hadn’t seen for a while. It was nice to catch up with him.

The boys had barely had the chance to do anything at the festival before it was time for them to attend their Prom.

They all took separate cabs to get there, it seems my boys are not always the best at sharing. ūüėē

At least they all made it in one piece.

Dale was due to leave for work in a couple of days and the two of us had been trying to spend as much time together as possible.

I’m not sure how we ended up at the wishing well, but it was certainly pretty out there and the two of us have always been fond of snow.

The following morning it was time for the Quads to have their birthday.

Loise was enthusiastic in her celebration, while Alene seemed a little sad that her brothers were soon going to be all grown up.

Taric became a workaholic, he wants to become Leader of the Pack.

Seirin received the Rebellious Trait. He wants to become The Cat Herder.

Rolan aged up receiving the Ambitious Trait. He hopes to become the CEO of a Mega-Corporation

And finally Bael aged up receiving the Hopeless Romantic Trait. He want to become an Illustrious Author

Bael decided to spend some of his remaining time in the house reading quietly with me.

He also found time to listen to his little sister, while she told him a very scary ghost story.

After the story telling, Bael made sure that he treated Alene to a bedtime story.

I was amazed that Taric and Rolan had chosen to spend some time together. Although Rolan had not been acting like himself since the abduction.

“I’m not moving in the morning” Rolan informed Taric.

“What, why?” Taric exclaimed, “Have you told Mum that? You know its time for us to go?”

“Yeah, I know. But I have this feeling that somethings not right.” Rolan said, “I just rather still be here when I work out what it is”

Rolan, true to his word didn’t move out the following morning. He had asked me if he could stay for another couple of days and I had agreed, part of me wondered if it was just so he wouldn’t have to stay with his brothers once he moved out.

It was sad to see them go, Dale in particular wasn’t keen on them leaving but he knew it was time.

I made sure that I gave the three of my sons who were leaving hugs to say goodbye and I was sure that Dale and I would see them again soon.

Growing Pains

Weeks had passed since Snowflake Day and Dale had yet to take down the mistletoe and was shamelessly using it obtain kisses.

“You still haven’t taken that down” I asked.

“It comes in handy” Dale replied grinning at me.

I was quickly learning that having two fully grown and worse still, two adolescent werewolves in the house was chaotic. It was also not forgiving on my furniture.

Taric and Seirin at one time had decided to use the kitchen to practise their fighting skills.

The end result was two broken chairs, a triumphant Taric, a sore but not sorry Seirin (who instantly requested a rematch),

and an unconcerned Maeric who was still sporting his stylish pirate hat.

In the end I had banned them from fighting in the house and told them all to take their training outside away from my furniture.

Bael tried to talk to Rolan about how he had behaving recently. Rolan had alienated nearly everyone in the house and Bael had only been trying to make his brother understand that.

Unfortunately Rolan just didn’t care and after that most of his siblings gave up trying to be nice to him.

Dale tried to get his son to become more involved in family activities but Rolan’s participation was always fleeting and unenthusiastic.

Taric had also taken interest in the ant farm that we had in the garage. It had been there forever, I think that Taric is the first of my children to even notice it was there.

Alene took the opportunity to scare her older brothers with a ghost story. Being all grown up didn’t seem to help them all that much.

Loise spent time outside in the snow. she particularity enjoyed the spring rider,

When she was inside she enjoyed playing with her IF doll.

Niella, Jheran and Maeric were still living at home.¬† Dale had been putting off their departure for a couple of weeks now, not that I blamed him. They were his children,¬†our children and he didn’t what them to leave.

I had ended up making Jheran a potion to turn his imaginary friend real. The two of them had been close the entire time they had been growing up. I wasn’t sure if he would be able to use it though, for the last couple of weeks the two of them had been experiencing some technical difficulties. (glitchy IF ūüė¶ )

As much as Dale had been dreading it, we c ould no longer delay the triplets moving out.

All three of them had grand plans they where all keen to get a start on.

The alien abductions continued, and as no-one seemed to be adversely effected by it we soon stopped worrying about it.

When Rolan finally had his turn at abduction, I will admit we all thought it was a little funny.

Especially since he was far from the only person who had been outside that night.

After all of the problems that he had been causing, I could only smile when the abduction occurred.

Even if I had been able to stop him being taken, I’m not sure I would have and I now feel a little guilty about that.

It certainly hasn’t done anything to improve relationship with the rest of the family.

Snowflake Day

It was time for the quads to become teens. They were all a little slow at making their way to their cakes, despite all being called at the same time.

Taric was first receiving the Unflirty trait.

He was followed by Seiren who became a Cat Person.

Rolan aged up receiving the Excitable trait.

Bael aged up last and received the Unlucky Trait. Despite inheriting his hair and eye colour from my side of the family, Bael appeared to have inherited the most from Dale.

Nearly immediately after the quads Rolan started to show evidence of the trait he had rolled as a child.  Unfortunately it was Niella he picked on first.

After all the care she had shown him while he was growing up, I was very disappointed with his behaviour.

I could also tell that Niella was extremely upset by his attack on her, I am not sure if this something their relationship will ever recover from.

Winter had also arrived and our werewolves were on the hunt. Although they were having little success.

Maeric often became discouraged and would start attacking the furniture.

Winter also announced that Snowflake Day was drawing near. I added a few decorations to the Living Room and I also invited several of my children that had moved out to celebrate the day with us. A few of the kids were unable to attend and sent their apologies. Most of them had decided to come.

We even had a couple of my children crash the party, which under the circumstances was more than welcome. Bodewhin even brought a plate of food along to share.

Even though she was now married Lamelle came by herself. I did wonder why she had left her husband Corey and son Agustin at home but I was still glad that she came.

Bodewhin seemed amused by Maeric’s fashion sense but was sensible enough not to let him know.

Others that came to celebrate included Siedre, Adan and Beslan. Beslan didn’t stay long due to work commitments but it was still nice to see him.

Rolan was continuing to alienate those around him. Most of his brother’s were upset about his treatment of Niella and were not afraid to express that.

Dale took the opportunity to ask for a kiss under the mistletoe.

Eventually we got everyone organised to begin opening the many presents we had stacked in the middle of the floor.

Everyone soon found a position in which to watch the gift giving.

I was glad that the living room was big enough to hold us all comfortably.

It took a while for everyone to recieve and open their gift but I think that most were pleased with the presents that they had received.

The following morning after eating way to much food and receiving many gifts it was time for the triplets to age up into Young Adults. Maeric aged up first rolling the Neurotic trait. Maeric wants to become a HeartBreaker.

Followed by his brother Jheran who became a workaholic and whats to become a Professional Author.

Niella was the last of the three to become a Young Adult. She rolled the Childish trait. Niella wishes to become a Master Musician.

They were quick about organising  a photo of the three of them for both me and their father.

Sisterly Love

It was good to have Dale home. It also meant I could take the newest family picture.

While he had been gone I had taken the time to redecorate our bedroom. I hadn’t finished with it completely but it was something I would continue to work on. It now felt like it was our space not just mine.

The new babies didn’t take long to announce their impending arrival.

Meanwhile in other areas of the house Niella helped out by making the family breakfast.

Taric’s table manners were as appalling as his father’s sometimes were. ūüėČ

Niella and Rolan had become very close.  The the two of them spent a lot of time together. They had even spent an entire afternoon pelting each other with water balloons,

Niella was always the one Rolan chose to ask when he required a bedtime story.

When Niella takes the time to work on her music, Rolan is never far away cheering her on.

She did spend some time without her little brother, Niella loved the slip’n’slide.

Sometimes it did not go to plan.

Jheran loved spending time with his imaginary friend Cuddles.

He also managed to be the first of the triplets to be abducted by aliens.

Maeric at least was keeping up with his homework.

Rolan had needed some help with his homework and I was happy to provide it.

Taric was very interested in the new babies and couldn’t wait for their arrival.

Taric, Bael and Jheran were all present when I finally went into labour.

Introducing my newest daughters, Loise who received the Evil and Slob traits at birth,

and her twin sister Alene receiving the traits virtuoso and Hates the Outdoors.

Soon it was time to start on toddler training for the twins. Alene had been asleep when I had gone into the nursery to start the training so Loise became the first to be trained to walk.

Dale came into the nursery to help with Alene when she had woken up before I had been finished with Loise.

The two of them seemed to have formed a bond, something that I was thrilled about.

Niella had taken a liking to both of the girls.

Having a couple of sister’s in the house after an abundance of brother’s was to her liking.

She even took the opportunity to teach Alene to walk.The Loise seemed to be a quick study when it came to talking.

Alene was almost as quick as her twin to pick it up.

Finally with the girls all trained up it was birthday time again.

Loise aged up first receiving the workaholic trait

she was followed by Alene who received the Easily Impressed Trait.

Leader of the Pack

With new quadruplets in the house I decided it was time for the triplets to become teenagers.

Most of the family was on hand to celebrate this important milestone. You may also notice that slight glow which indicates a full moon. ūüėÄ

Maeric aged up and rolled the Flirty trait.

Jheran rolled the Vegetarian trait.

And Niella rolled the Proper trait.

The Full Moon brought out the wolf in Dale. As they all ate birthday cake,¬† Niella seemed surprised by her father’s transformation.

Maeric became more interested in tearing up the furniture. His father just watched. ūüė¶

After sizing his son up, Dale had the urge to show his eldest son just who was the leader of the pack.

Let the ”My teeth are bigger than Yours” competition commence. ūüėē

With four babies to train, most of the teens gave training the toddlers a try; even if it was for a short time any amount of help was welcome.

Taric took a liking to the Xylophone.

Sierin could often be found playing peek-a-boo in the toy box.

Niella became drawn to music, just like I knew she would. At the moment she seems to have taken a liking to the Bass.

Siedre performed her first conversion spell. The result was an adorable little lady beetle.

Jheran tried wishing in the well.

While he was home Dale tried out the driving range.

With the trained, it was a relief to be able to celebrate their birthdays.

All of the older kids came to cheer them on.

Taric received the Neat trait.

Seirin became Unlucky

Rolan rolled the Mean-Spirited trait. ūüė¶

and Bael received the rebellious trait.

There were however two more birthdays to be celebrated.

Siedre and Adan birthdays seemed to trigger a chain reaction of werewolf transformations. Dale and Maeric seemed to transform almost simultaneously.

This time her brother’s transformation terrified Niella.

Taric became the first of the Quads to succumb to his wolf form.

The Birthday continued despite the interruptions.

Adan rolled the charismatic Trait. He wants to become Super Popular.

Siedre rolled the Dislikes Children trait. I wondered if her interrupted birthday in anyway influenced her roll. ūüôā Siedre wishes to grow the perfect garden.

After all the birthdays were complete we all sat down to celebrate with cake.

With her sudden dislike of children it didn’t help when Maeric decided to scare Siedre right after her birthday.

After Maeric’s scare, Siedre couldn’t wait to leave home and both she and Adan organised to leave the very next morning.

They did take a short time to organise their going away portrait.

I was already upset about Siedre and Adan leaving home when, all too soon, it was time for Dale to leave for work again.

“I’ll be back before you have a chance to miss me”, he told me.

“No you won’t” I replied, ‘‘I miss you already”

After Dale had left it was time to complete my task.

”Hi”

All Yours

Dale had left the previous evening and unfortunately he wouldn’t be back for a couple of weeks. The rest of the household just got on with the everyday activities we¬†usually used to occupy ourselves. Of course I also had to find the next father. For this pregnancy I decided to find an easy target. Genies are notorious for being willing to do almost anything for their freedom. My grandmother had been sending me all the Genie Lamps she could find since my last Genie father. I figured it was time to actually use one.

Of course I had to make sure that all my kids were busy first. I didn’t like the idea of parading the next father in front of my kids, especially since I was now engaged to Dale. It made more sense for me to make contact during the day while everyone else was at school. Of course someone else had an opinion on that! I had been preparing to summon the Genie when it suddenly became apparent that I was already pregnant. When had that happened?

I decided to still summon the genie. At least this way I would know if the genie was at least male and I could also make a wish. ūüôā

I explained my deal with him.¬† His freedom for a baby (when I wasn’t already pregnant of course).

When I wished for a large family he looked at me as if I was a little crazy.

He did agree to grant my wish for a large family and promised that he would think about the other proposal.

After putting the Genie back in his bottle, I went out into the backyard to relax with a little bit of painting. It had been quite a while since I had the time to indulge in one of my favourite past times.

It had taken me a while to realise that Adan had failed go to school today. I had to let him know that I was angry that he had skipped school and also with his current grades he would be very lucky if he even had the marks to graduate.

Over the next week Siedre worked on her Alchemy,

did a bit of reading,

some gaming,

and of course worked on her magic.

Jheran and Maeric continued to bond with their Imaginary Friends.

Niella continued to enjoy the rocking horse.

Adan became the first person to try out the new basketball hoop.

Soon enough it was time for Dale to arrive home.¬† Our reunion was briefly interrupted by somebody asking me for an autograph. Guess I’m now famous in Queenstown?

The first chance I got I was welcoming him home. “I missed you” I told him.

”I missed you too”, he responded.. His eyes dropped to my expanding waistline.

“So you’re pregnant?” he asked.

“Of course” I told him, “That was the plan” I watched him trying to gauge his reaction, I still didn’t quite believe that he would stay when I started having more babies with other men.

“That’s great” he said. He laughed at the look of shock that I couldn’t hide. “Lucia, that was our deal remember? If I didn’t think I could handle it I wouldn’t have agreed to it.”

Taking his hand I pulled him towards the backyard, “By the way this time our plan totally failed”, I laughed.

“Huh?”

“These babies are all yours” I informed him, poking him the chest before starting to climb the ladder to the treehouse.. “I found out the day after you left”

I could tell that he was shocked, I was nearly to the top of the ladder when he finally responded. “Luc, do you really think you should be climbing up there?” he asked, “Your pregnant!”

“Are you joining me up here or not?” I laughed.

It wasn’t long before the new babies decided they were ready to be born. Conveniently I had been napping in the nursery when I gone into labour.¬† Unfortunately Dale freaked out about having the babies at home so we ended up at the hospital.

When we were at the front entrance I even had a cheer squad, although my daughter Jalani is better at jeering than she is at cheering.

Our trip to the hospital had a result that neither I nor Dale had anticipated.

We were blessed with four beautiful baby boys. Now that we knew what to look for, we also noticed that two of our new sons were werewolves like their father.

Taric was first-born, he arrived with the traits Absent-Minded and Loves the Outdoors.

Seirin was born with the traits Clumsy and Easily Impressed.

Rolan received the traits Hates the Outdoors and Absent-Minded.

and finally Bael was born with the traits Hates the Outdoors and Genius.

***

A/N: So… the Quads were NOT planned, I left Lucia and Dale in the middle of some romantic actions when I went to check on other members of the family. Next thing I knew there were baby chimes. I did deliberately make the genie wish for a large family but I wasn’t expecting quads… ūüėē So my question is this: Should I include the quads in Lucia’s count or should they be extras? Let me know what you think. ūüėÄ

The King and Queen

Today is the Spring Carnival and with the children begging to attend we all hopped in our Motive Mobile to see what was on offer.

The triplets couldn’t wait to find all the eggs scattered around the festival and spent most of the afternoon hunting eggs. Maeric spent the entire day in his werewolf form. Sometimes I think he prefers it.

Siedre was the first to try out the roller-skating rink. She wasn’t doing a lot better than I had when I had first tried Ice-Skating.

Dale and I¬† counldn’t resist trying the Love Tester Machine.

We anxiously waited to see where our relationship would be ranked.

We were excited when the light flashed at the very top.

Granting us a perfect 10/10.

Later in the evening the other children joined Siedre on the rink. All of them appeared to be as talented as I had been. Siedre had yet to show any improvement.

Maeric however decided that roller-skating was not for him and ran beside his siblings instead.

Dale and I had spent the rest of the evening on the dance floor. We even received a letter a couple of days later announcing that we had won the title of Spring Festival King and Queen.

It had already been a wonderful day. When we had finally arrived home and the children had all made their way to bed, Dale decided to make a perfect day even better.

He looked nervous, he took a deep breath before saying “You know I have to go away for the next couple of weeks for work, but before I go I just need to ask you something.”

“Okay?” I asked, unsure of where he was taking this conversation. I knew he wasn’t exactly looking forward to leaving, it was the first time our agreement would be put into effect. I don’t think either of us really knew how it was all going to work when it was acted upon.

He surprised me when he was suddenly got down on one knee pulling a small box from his pocket. “Lucia, I’ve been wanting to ask you this since the moment I met you. I love you and I always will. Will you do me the honour of becoming my wife?”

I happily accepted. Unfortunately I had to tell him that the wedding would have to wait until I had reached my one hundred baby goal.

Dale was thrilled that I had said yes to marrying him, but a little disappointed that the wedding wouldn’t take place until later.

We did take the opportunity to celebrate our engagement before he left town.

The Occult Within – Part 2

Shortly after finding out about Dale, we noticed that Maeric was also displaying some symptoms. I didn’t take kindly to him scratching my furniture but he was only a baby and it couldn’t be helped. When Adan was at home he was very good at keeping his little brother calm.

I had searched for¬†information on the condition in toddlers and I had some hope that we could help him learn to thrive. I have a fair few children who fell in the occult category. However, with Maeric I couldn’t rely on Dale to know what to do like I had done with previous fathers. This was new to Dale, too.

We soon settled into a routine and I will admit that I delayed aging the toddlers to children for longer than I ever had before.

Speaking of having to contact fathers to work out what to do with their kids.

I had to give Ray (Siedre¬†and Adan’s father) a call when Siedre has suddenly discovered she had powers.

I must have been a little preoccupied when Siedre¬†was growing up because according to Ray, Siedre’s magic would have manifested when she was a toddler. Adan appeared to be unaffected.

Siedre¬†was thrilled when she learned to cast a Luck charm. The ability to offset her unlucky trait came in very handy. ūüėÄ

Eventually I couldn’t delay any longer it was time for my babies to become children.

Most of their siblings were on hand to celebrate their little brothers and sister’s birthday.

Adan and Siedre were very enthusiastic in their celebrations.

First up was Maeric who rolled the Easily Impressed trait.

Next up was his brother Jheran who received the Dramatic trait.

And finally Niella who rolled the Lucky trait.

Afterwards they all enjoyed their birthday cakes together.

Our suspicions about Maeric were soon confirmed.

His first transition happened next to his sister while everyone was busy eating the triplets birthday cake. Niella did not seem to be the slightest bit worried about what was happening right next to her.

Maeric’s transformation received more attention from other family members.

It was all too much for Adan who promptly fainted.

Siedre seemed worried but I think she was more worried about her twin than she was about the relevation that Maeric was also a werewolf.

She got over the shock quickly and started practising her witch-craft next to the passsed-out Adan.

Tylin and Beslan aged up the same night but unlike the triplets they had both been out exploring Queenstown. ūüė¶

Both of them aged up on the side of road in the pouring rain on their way home to receive their cake.


Tylin received the Brave trait and is planning on becoming a Jockey.


Beslan received the Natural Born Performer trait and wants to become a Acrobat.

I couldn’t believe that Beslan and Tylin were now young adults and ready to leave home.

Of course I made sure that I gave them goodbye hugs and they promised to send a photo as soon as they were settled.

I once again only had five children in the house. Both Jheran and Maeric’s imaginary friends became semi-real. This of course meant they often appeared to be talking to themselves and playing with thin air.


Maeric became accustomed to his werewolf form. Unlike Dale, he seemed to be able to remember what happened during a transformation.

Unlike the boys, with Niella we never saw any evidence of an imaginary friend. She did take a liking to the rocking horse in the nursery and was often up there for hours on end.

Tylin and Beslan had sent me a photo from outside their house once they had settled in. I was pleased that they had remembered.

At one point I had invited the entire family over to get a photo of all of us. It was meant to be a Christmas photo but by the time that we actually got around to taking it, Christmas had long since passed.

***

BONUS PICS: Mostly because Maeric, Jheran¬†and Niella spent a lot of time as toddlers and I also bought the new store set with the change table and the animations are just adorable. As you can see Jheran was the lucky toddler that got to try it all out with his mum. ūüėõ

The Occult Within – Part 1

It had been a couple of months before we worked out what was behind Dale’s memory loss. In that time I had really started to worry.

We had only becoming stronger as a couple but having your partner dissapear without warning messes with your emotions.

And of course we were in the middle of toddler training. There were some quiet times.

Mostly it was chaos.

Bonehilda was a great help with the toddlers. She was always looking after one of them making it easier for us to finish training the other two.

Toddler training had to be completed, of course. So we got started as soon as we could.

Dale was a natural father.

His children really enjoyed having him around; as did the older children.

He was soon helping train the tots like he had done it before.

I had been in the middle of teaching Maeric how to talk when I finally learned about what was different about Dale…

”Maeric can you say Mama? Mum-a..” I asked him, waiting for my son to answer.

“Ma-Ma” he said slowly, as he payed close attention to what I was trying to teach.

“Good boy!” I encouraged him.

How about Daddy? Can you say Daddy?” I asked Maeric, I looked up to see Dale entering the room. “Da-what? Uhh?….Dale?….What on earth?”

Dale had transformed into…something…pointed ears, sharp teeth..the works.

That night after a little research we had discovered what was wrong with Dale and the reason behind both his tranformation and his memory loss. Dale was a werewolf and there was only two ways to become infected…being bitten by another wolf (something Dale vaguely remembered) and inheriting the gene from a parent. The abilty to remember what happened during a tranformation would come with practice.

The older children were getting along fine. Beslan helped out by reading a bedtime story to Adan.

Tylin was happy enough watching the television.

She also spent some time playing chess on the computer.

Beslan, like his sister also managed to get abducted. I imagine he won’t enjoy what comes next.

Adan also went outside to see the pretty lights. ūüėē You would think the kids would have worked out what they mean by now – but apparently not…..

Siedre decided to outdo the boys by getting herself abducted twice!!¬† Smart Girl…… ūüė¶

Beslan and Tylin have taken a liking to the wishing well. I think they have been wishing for happiness. Maybe they wished to forget everything about their alien eccounters.

We soon got used to Dale being – different. Some of his quirks were harder to live with than others.

“Ah, Mum. Dale’s eating straight off the plate again.”, Tylin smiled at me.

“I see him” I replied.

Along with some appalling table manners, Dale had started to enjoy his food raw. It took some getting used to.

Winter Festival

As usual the time was coming that I would have to say goodbye to one of my children

.

I had been distracting myself as much as possible but it was soon time for Jolene to leave the house.

Even though she had joined the¬†family a little unconventionally, it¬†didn’t mean that I loved her any less than my other children and I was sad to see her go.

We did take the time to take a family portrait before she left. I hadn’t realised just how long it had been since I had one done. I think that Caraline¬†and Darlin were children for the last one.

It was still winter and so we seemed to spend a lot of time inside. Usually watching televsion or some other activity. For Beslan it was usually something music related.

Tylin managed to get herself abducted by aliens. We did warn her not to go out to look at lights in the sky but for some reason she ignored all of our warnings.

When Beslan¬†did make it outside he made us all an igloo. When his hot-headedness overcame him he often escaped out there to cool off and even spent a couple of nights in there. Apparently it’s not as cold in there as it looks.

Siedre became interested in baking.

She cooks snacks for herself all the time which is probably a good idea when you consider that I have a tendency to serve up birthday cake three times a day. I can cook okay but who has the time?

The hiring of Bonehilda to help around the house has had some unforseen problems.

I forgot to take Adan’s neurotic trait into consideration…thankfully this is a fairly large house. I am hoping they will learn to avoid each other.

The activity I chose to spend my time on was inventing; an activity that I had only tried in passing before.

Having an activity that required my full attention was for the most part keeping me from analysing the Dale situation. Even though I had thought it could work at the time I was no longer sure. He would have to one exceptional guy to put up with what I had to do.

Mostly I thought it wasn’t fair to him but he wasn’t taking that as an excuse and had convinced me to let him move in when I started to show.

Dale was due back in town today and we were all playing to meet up at the winter festival. The children took an immediate liking to the snow-fighting station and spent hours pelting each other with snow balls.

I  loved how each child had chosen to compete against their twin.

I had chosen to start making a snowman. I had thought that at least one of the kids would have become bored with the snowballs and come over to help me but I had ended up having to finish Mr Snow all by myself.

My youngest children were not the only one enjoying the Winter Festival. Careane, Tuon and Adora were also enjoying the day out.

Dale had finally arrived as I was talking to Adora.

“Hey, so sorry I’m late. I got caught in traffic”, he said leaning in to give me a kiss on the cheek before turning to Adora to introduce himself. “Hi, I’m Dale and I’m thinking by the look of you that you must be one of Lucia’s daughters.”

“Adora, and yes I am” Adora¬† looked at him, “How did you know that?. She finally asked.

Dale reached out taking a strand of my hair between his fingers. “You have the same beautiful hair as your mother” he stated, his hand reaching out to take mine.

“Is it okay if I steal her away for a bit?”, He asked Adora.

“Sure”

As Dale pulled me away from the centre of the festival, I glanced over my shoulder at Adora as should stood staring after me in shock. I knew I would be receiving a phone call later asking me to explain just what was going on.

“I missed you” he breathed, pulling me into his arms.

“I missed you too”

And I did, whenever he was here I was sure that we were doing the right thing. When he was gone, I worried that this relationship was not going to work. That it was a mistake.

“So umm, you have probably already worked this out but…..I’m pregnant!” I blurted out. Even though I had agreed to let him move in before the baby was born the last time we had been together I hadn’t looked pregnant.

Dale’s excitement at the news was adorable. “So that means you are going to let me move in?” he asked.

“Yes, you can move in” I told him.

He pulled me into arms and kissed me and I was once again sure that it was all going to work out.

Dale also became very interested in my expanding waistline. “I can’t wait to meet them….”he told me.

Time always passes so quickly. Dale was often absent for unexplained reasons. When I asked him about it he only seemed confused and insisted he had been at home the entire time. In the end I let it go, even though his loss of time concerned me. In the future he was going to have to be extremely forgiving, the least I could do was reciprocate.

Just before I was due to give birth I decided to age up Siedre and Adan.

Siedre aged up into a beautiful teen receiving the Green Thumb Trait.

While her twin Adan became equally handsome receiving the Excitable trait.

When I finally did go into labour I was once again painting.

Dale and I welcomed three little angels into the simverse.

First born was Maeric who received the Loves the Heat and Over-Emotional traits.

and his brother Jheran who was born with the traits Loves the Cold and Couch Potato.

and finally Baby Number 75, a baby girl whom we named Niella. She was born with the Virtuoso and Brave traits.
