1.8

We’re finally back from our job trip from France. Yes, we’ve decided to extend for a bit. We’ve just arrived in time for Caitlin and Dustin’s birthday. Well, Dustin is still a day away but we wanted to celebrate the birthdays together.

 

 

When we arrived home, the first thing I saw was Janelle! She looks like she’s ready to burst out the house.

“You’re here! Great! So See ya!” She said. She really has messed up hair, eyebags and her glasses are crooked. Her clothes are messy, full of milk and barf and her eyes keep twitching.

“Hold on a moment Janelle! It’s Caitlin and Dustin’s birthday today! You should stay here for a while”.

“Caitlin’s birthday! Good Good! Cake!” When she heard Caitlin’s name I felt like she was a bit afraid. I’m not sure why.

 

 

I went to Caitlin’s room. It was a bit dark I don’t know why. She hurriedly gave me a big, tight hug.

“I miss you mommy! Auntie Janelle was a terror! She won’t let me eat Cake!” She said.

“Is that so? Let’s talk about that later hon! C’mon, where’s Dustin?” I asked.

“Oh he’s in his room being his own goofy self”.

 

I went to Dustin’s room and brought him out. I hugged him tightly and showed him his cake.

 

“Enough with the mushy stuff! Hurry up and blow the cake so I can get out of this horrible house!” Janelle said angrily.

“Just stay put Janelle! In the mean time just pretend to be happy! You don’t want to get Caitlin on your bad side” I said.

“Ugh! I know how it feels” She said and  rolled her eye. She stopped whining when she saw Caitlin.

 

Caitlin began staring at the cake in awe. She blew off her candles. By the time the last candle was blown I can now see that Caitlin is no longer the little princess that I always see…

 

 

She is now a little woman whose world just got a lot bigger. She rolled in the Workaholic trait.

 

By the time Caitlin grew into a teenager, Dustin, with his eyes glowing kissed me on the cheek and, with a little assistance by me, blew the candles off his birthday cake.

 

After Dustin blew his candle He grew up into a fine looking lad.

 

Dustin rolled in the Evil trait.

 

Now that all of our children can be independent in some ways I feel like I passed on a responsibility on someone.

 

 

But whom?

I recieved a call from my boss. He wants me to go to France and deliver a book and interview some of the locals. I always wanted to go to France but I have a problem. No one will take care of the kids! Jeremy will leave for France with me too and Dustin is still too young to come along.

I don’t want to call those pesky baby sitters because they don’t do their job well. So I called the only available person I know.

“Hello?”

“What do you want Shar?”

“Janelle! I need you to come. NOW!”

“What do you want Shar?” Janelle said.

“Come In Janelle”

When, Janelle came inside our house she sat on the couch not minding my husband. Caitlin sat beside me and glared harshly on Janelle before turning on the TV . There was an awkward silence at first.

But Janelle broke the silence.

“Why did you bring me here?”

“Whatever happen to Hi? Anyway, me and Jeremy are going to France for a month. I was wondering if you could stay here and watch the kids?”

“What?! Why me? Can’t you just hire a babysitter or something? When are you leaving anyway?”

“We’re leaving this evening Janelle! You can’t say no! Or I’ll tell mom you’re not capable of being a mother!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*JANELLE’S POINT OF VIEW*

 

 

The one thing you should know about me is that I absolutely dislike children! I don’t want to marry, I don’t want kids. I just want to commit myself to myself! There’s nothing wrong with that right? Or Am I just being selfish? Now that I was forced to take care of Shar’s kids for an undetermined time (She said she will be in France for a month but France is such a beautiful place I would be a fool not to take advantage of that opportunity) I now strongly agree with my beliefs.

 

That pesky little toddler keeps crying, I dunno what he wants I keep making him a bottle, changing his diaper. If I could only read his mind I think he will be like “I’m cold, I’m itchy, Where’s Mommy?” and all that crap. Caitlin on the other hand is very quiet. Or so I thought. I think she is silently judging me.

“Auntie Janine!” She called.

She pronounced my name wrong and I get pissed when someone dosen’t call my name right. I tried to talk sweetly to her.

“It’s Auntie Janelle sweetie. So what the hell do you want?!” I said. I know that came out wrong and I know I shouldn’t be swearing in front of a child.”

“How old are you Auntie Janelle?” She asked. I also don’t want people finding out about my age. They say age is just a number but I don’t believe those BS.

I replied to her by saying “Oh, I’ll tell you how old I am when you tell me yours m’kay?”.

“I’m 7, so how old are you?! 70?!”

I couldn’t reply with that. So I just naturally told her some random stuff like, “Oh look at the time! You should get yourself dinner hon!”

“Great Idea for a pea brain like yours Auntie! I want Cake!”

“Oh No No No! Your mom said you won’t have any cake til they return”.

 

Caitlin got out of her chair and approached me with those piercing grey eyes and her foot stomping.

“Hey look Lady, who do you think you are? I want cake you give me cake! That’s the way it works around here! Now I WANT CAKE! I WANT CAKE! Don’t make me call mom!” She said.

 

“Look just do whatever you want and don’t bother me again kid! Just go eat some crap from your garbage can alright?!”

 

“That’s what I want to hear ! Cuz’ I’m the Princess from this house! Call me Princess Caitlin okay!” She said as she dug her ungrateful mouth to that cake.

 

I went to check on Dustin and he was playing his toy xylophone. Kinda admit he was kinda cute. Makes me wonder if I should settle to and start a family. But all that changed when I heard that brat Caitlin calling for my assistance again so she can make my life easy as she so put it.

1.6

Caitlin is a hungry little toddler. She likes to eat all the time. She sure is a tough lil toddler to raise. Espescially that we are on a tight budget. Jeremy was demoted from his job. And I haven’t been on my job too because I’m on maternity leave.

 

 

Even though it’s hard to be a mother, I feel like I’m the luckiest woman in the world because I have a family. I really like to stuck my face out of those child-less couples and say “Hey look! I have a daughter so boo on you! “. I always wanted kids, start a family you know and continue on my legacy.

 

If Caitlin wasn’t eating, she would play. She likes to play her toy xylophone. Maybe she wants to be a musician one day? Well, as long as she fullfills her dream I’ll be happy for her and will support her all the way.

 

I’ve been throwing up all over again. I think I’m pregnant again? I dunno. But It would be nice to have another child.

 

 

After work. Oh Joy! I’m preggie! I wished for another girl but Jeremy wanted a boy now. Well, I guess I have another maternity leave. It’s almost like I never wanted to go to work again!

 

 

When I got home Jeremy was overjoyed when he learned that I’m pregnant.

“Shar that’s so amazing! We’re gonna have another baby!”

“I know! I feel so blessed to have another baby on the way!”

“Yeah! The Alaska family just got alot bigger!”

 

As the days go by when I learned about my pregnancy, Caitlin’s birthday hits the calendar. She no longer will be the helpless little toddler who likes to eat, she will grow up into the little lady that I always envisioned.

 

 

My wittle Lady Caitlin grew into a promising young child! She rolled in the Grumpy trait. We celebrated her birthday with just us, We ate some cake, played some games. It was a bit fun.

 

 

Just after the party I went into labor again. I felt that I’m gonna be to old for this caring for another baby since I am nearing being an elder and all. But I know that I’m a good mother so I’ll keep on truckin’ (Is truckin’ even a real word? )

 

Another blessing came in the Alaska Household. We were blessed by a baby boy. We named him Dustin. He looks alot like me I was happy about that!

“Hello”…. “Janelle?” I said to my sister who called me in the library.

“How dare you!” She yelled

“What did I do?!”

“According to some news floating around, you married that jerk Jeremy Sears!” Janelle said angrily.

“Oh here we go again! I fall in love, you get mad at me! What is it about you wants me to be lonely all the time?!”

“He’s a celebrity Shar! Open your eyes! Celebrities cheat, steal! How dense can you be!”

“That’s not true Janelle! I know your just making up these stories so you can break my marriage!”

“You’re just jealous now that I married a celebrity!”

“Just get out already! If you ever try to ruin my marriage I will never speak to you again!”

“Fine! If you feel that way so be it! Enjoy your backed up toilet of a marriage!”

 

“You just wait til’ mom hears about this! You are going to regret it Shar!”

“What?! Don’t! Don’t”

*BEEP*

“Hello?…Hello? Darn it she hanged up!

Well what are surprise I married and Janelle disapproves.

 

 

I went home with my mind clouding up. Maybe it’s the pregnancy or Janelle’s unexpected call. I dunno. So I unwound myself and finished Marie and the Blues and started my first Humor book called Mojo and Paco: The epic battle series. It’s funny I can tell you that! Mind If I show you a preview?

mojo: oh it’s on paco. it’s on!

paco: YES IT IS!
*Puts on space suit*

SPACE WARS!!!!

 

This goes on for a while but I promise you it WILL be EPIC! I finished the book in a matter of weeks.

 

When I was about to sleep, I went into labor. A precious bundle of joy had took a the form of a baby. A new member to the Alaska clan had just been born.

 

 

The baby is a girl. We named her Caitlin Alaska. Her favorite color is White and her traits are Brave and Good.

I just finished work and I’m reminding everyone invited to the wedding that 2:00 PM today, it’s me and Jeremy’s wedding. I texted Janelle but she haven’t replied. I’m just hoping she will attend the wedding later.

 

 

I went to the local salon for a makeover and to rent out a wedding outfit. I tried to borrow some wedding outfit from one of my cousins but they look like a halloween costume that found their way to their regular rotation. This day is also my Birthday so I’m aging up to an adult.

 

I arrived at the place where we are about to be wed. I feel great about myself. I don’t look like a grandma anymore.

 

 

Jeremy greeted me and exchanged formalities.

“You look gorgeous Sharmaine”

“Thanks Jeremy! You look cute too on your formal wear.”

 

I don’t know why Jeremy chose the public pool to be our wedding place. It’s not romantic and all and alot of sims here are on their swimsuits or their birthday suits. But I don’t care about that, all I care about that I’m getting married!

 

 

I looked at all the guests and their bright shiny eyes are all looking at us.

 

One of them are in their swimsuits. One of them was the burglar who robbed my house and one of them is my boss at work. To my surprise, the Altos and Janelle weren’t there. It made me abit sad.

 

 

I try to ignore Janelle’s absence because it’s making me depressed. We exchanged rings and vows.

 

 

From now on, Jeremy is now named Jeremy Sears-Alaska. He chose to honor his name because that is a reminder of his fame. Oh yeah, he quit his acting job to work at the sports arena.

 

 

Jeremy’s parents surprised me at home. They actually renovated it! It’s totally much better than the crap shack I used to call home. This house… It’s decent, a bit roomy. Perfect for a starting home! And they bought us a car!

 

Me and Jeremy had been waiting for this. I think it’s just the right thing to do “IT” after our wedding. It’s what our parents wanted us to do and it is the right thing after all.

 

I woke up in the middle of the night. I looked at the mirror and plumbob! I looked old. My tummy rumbled and I feel like I’m about to throw up.

 

I threw up until the toilet is filthy and couldn’t handle it anymore. I also feel week at the moment and couldn’t really stand up for a long period of time.

 

 

I stayed at the bed all weekday. Jeremy called my boss and requests a vacation which was granted. Then, he called the doctor and explained the symptoms of my illness. The result….

 

 

I’M PREGNANT! Thank Plumbob!

 

Being pregnant is no joke. I dragged Jeremy to the public library and started reading these pregnancy books.

 

Just then, an unexpected phone call from Janelle.

“Hello?”

1.3

He took the ring and with a smile on his face, he said yes. I wanted to have only a private wedding because a wedding is too costly and I’m short on money. Heck, I can’t even afford a shower! But Jeremy insisted, since he’s an actor and all money is no problem to him.

 

This night is just perfect. After tomorrow’s work, I’m going to the salon and change my look. It’s nearing my birthday also. I’m nearing my adulthood. Just like what my mom would want I would marry by the age of an adult. I believe it’s the right thing to do.

 

Apparently, when I was away a burglar broke into my house. Good thing my neighbor called me on my cellphone so I can call the police right away.

 

Before I go to work, I have to interview Nick Alto first. He’s a friend. Well, not really.

 

 

I got quite some trash to blog about Nick Alto. The last thing I wanted is another enemy. I wrote a negative review about Vita Alto weeks ago and what she did and said to me wasn’t pretty. I told Nick and Vita about my wedding and they insisted to come. I’m Ok with Nick but I don’t know about Vita. She seems Evil. And not Cartoon Evil. For real Evil!

 

1.2

I feel so stressed out from working so hard at my job lately. I have been accepting one opportunity to another. I am currently writing a book also. It’s my second book and it’s a Sci-Fi. It’s entitled Crazy’s World.  Even though I’m technophobic I still need to earn a living right? Most nights I don’t even sleep anymore because I’m at the public library. I can’t afford a computer at the moment.

 

 

 

But despite all that I got my well deserved promotion and a raise. And I’m also meeting Jeremy for dinner later! I’m so excited!

 

 

Jeremy and I met at the Bistro and I treated him to dinner again. It’s just a mini celebration because I got promoted and Jeremy landed a role on a film.

 

 

That evening was perfect. I couldn’t ask for a better man who is going to be life partner. His beautiful eyes met mine and he told me that he loves me. Yeah I know this is mushy stuff but I don’t care. I finally found a guy who loves me! And I was blinded all these years and I never thought that my old roommate will still be my roommate and more If know what I’m saying.

 

 

I kissed him on the lips and he kissed me back. What did I feel? Fireworks! I knew that he was the one. He is the perfect guy for me. Even though I met him through speed dating I don’t care! I found love!

 

 

Then I got down on one knee and I took a box from my pocket. I try to ignore that paparazzi that was all over us. I’d expect that my face will be all over the news or internet after this.

 

 

I opened the box and of course a wedding ring was there. I, a woman, proposed to a man. How cliche was that? My heart was beating. I hope that he will say yes. Otherwise I will be heartbroken and I will be a laughing stock of the town.

 

 

I couldn’t read his face. His eyes grew big and I can see him shaking. One answer and my life will change alot.
