Generation Two - Chapter Seventeen: Once More With Feeling
With a new baby on the way it was time for Beatrice to get the hang of this whole parenting thing.
Carter was developing his genetically required affinity for food early on.
This pregnancy was harder on Beatrice than the first, but Bray was there to help out with Carter.
Including helping teach him the essentials in the newly redecorated nursery.
He even did the laundry with a smile... or an evil smirk? Meh, close enough.
Before long the big day arrived, and Beatrice reluctantly put her simulated sims game on hold to rush to the hospital.
Despite how difficult her pregnancy was the labor went smoothly and Beatrice delivered a healthy baby girl that very evening. Like her brother Carter, Monroe was born with the good trait. As you can tell Beatrice wasn't exactly thrilled that none of her children were following in her evil footsteps.
Back at home someone had to watch Carter while Beatrice was in the hospital, but I don't think anyone was counting on it being Randy. Bray wasn't exactly sure what to make of the situation, but from the look on his face I'd say he settled on denial.
Bray: This can't be happening, right?
It didn't take long for Monroe to outgrow her cocoon and start crawling around the house. She just loved to drag toys out of the toy box and scatter them across the house for the family to trip over. She may be a nice sim, but she certainly isn't a neat one.
Although, looking at that smile I'm beginning to doubt her niceness. Must just be Beatrice's influence though...
...because she acted like an angel when her dad held her.
Carter was a willful child, and a bit jealous of his new little sister. The only thing that seemed to satisfy him was food.
He knew exactly how to smile and get away with it too.
With two little ones in the house Beatrice and Bray had to treasure their romantic moments whenever they could get them.
Although the maid didn't exactly approve of their making out in front of her.
Now that Beatrice and Bray had similar working hours they had to resort to hiring the dreaded babysitter to watch the kids at night. They must have hit the jackpot because this baby sitter actually cleaned.
Randy didn't seem to approve of her though.
Must have thought she was getting too close to his kid.
She actually paid attention to the kids though, so I'm going to let the whole "looking inside your child's head" thing go.
Carter: IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
Yes it was that magical time when one of the winters children mutates. Beatrice was a bit embarrassed to be seen with Carter during his awkward phase, what a great mother.
At this point Carter became distressed, where was the birthday cake?
Sorry Carter, the baby sitter's here (cleaning the bathroom for some reason, gotta say I like this girl) which must mean it's the parent's date night. Way more important than celebrating Carter's birthday.
Luckily Bray moved the date from the dirty bathroom to the much more suitable park nearby.
Bray confessed that he had a reason for bringing Beatrice out that night.
He took Beatrice's hand is his, and worked up his courage...
Bray: Beatrice, I've wanted to ask you this a long time. Will you marry me?
Looks like the Winters have another wedding to plan. Hopefully this one will actually happen.
