1.33: Double Trouble

Before work, Levi finds a little bit of time to paint. He won’t be able to get it completed, but it’s a start and it’ll help him improve his quality at work for that next promotion. Levi’s next project is a Landscape painting canvas. He’s thinking outdoors, so we’ll see if that’s what it is when he gets home to finish it.

I’m also really enjoying the perks he received during past promotions. I never cheat ahead to look at what bonuses each career gives. It’s always fun to find out as a surprise. Even in my story telling SimLits, I like to be surprised. I enjoy sitting back and looking at Levi’s little work room. It truly looks like a painter’s paradise room.

While Levi was at work and Spica put Summer down for a nap, The Lottery results showed up. One of my readers commented last chapter that it could take late morning before the actual results came through.

The results are in and the lucky lotto winner is… Dirk Dreamer!

Maybe Levi and Spica will have better luck next time The Lottery comes around.

Levi didn’t get that promotion he was hoping for. But he will the next day he works, that’s how close he is.

Levi decides to spend some quality time with Summer to build up his parenting skills a bit more. Autonomously, Spica came into the room to watch as well. “You seem to be doing better than Levi is, Spica. Give him some pointers!” *laughing*

Before heading off to bed, Levi finishes that painting from earlier in the morning. I’m curious to find out what the Landscape painting ends up being.

He was thinking outdoors when Levi first started it. It definitely is an outdoors landscape painting. Not a masterpiece, tho. He really needs to start working on masterpieces again. He’s done a couple already.

Levi had the next day off which was good. Why? Because Spica was well into the 3rd trimester now and went into labor in the middle of the day. He’s got 6 vacation days saved up, so I would have used one of those anyway because of how far along she was, but now I don’t have to.

Off to the hospital we go, and off to watch Levi panic a second time. They didn’t take time to change this time around. Summer went to daycare as watching the birth of your brother or sister is not quite that exciting, especially for the toddler age.

Levi checks in, again. Good. “Now go follow your wife into the delivery room please, Levi!”

Nope. Levi is still scared. What is wrong with this guy? *laughing* You’d think after missing out the first time, he’d go the second. Again, he just stands in the lobby. I see the baby holder appear and am thinking, “I guess you’ll miss out again, Levi. Not very supportive of your wife with pregnancies are you?” “I’m here with you, Spica!”

It’s a boy. Summer has a baby brother. The rolled dice gives him Jaxon Hayward for a name. I kind of like that. He can have the nickname, Jax.

…And then this happens. Another boy. Jason Hayward. Yup, definitely twins. “Is this why you didn’t come this time, Levi? Did you know this would happen?” I do like twins and all, but I was hoping that Levi and Spica only had 2 kids. That was my plan, but not the game’s I just now have noticed.

Now the big question; will they be identical or fraternal? We’ll find out in 3 in-game days when they become toddlers. Unless a third decides to pop out now. *shifty eyes*

Good. No triplets. But Levi and Spica do now have double the work of feeding, changing diapers, cooing and cuddling, as well as lack of sleep. At least for the next 3 in-game days.

I have Levi use Family Leave and Vacation Days during this time. He is also not painting while he and Spica take care of 2 babies and a toddler. His passion and career are just on a minor hold for the time being.

Look at Spica. She’s got the look as if she’s questioning she can handle 3 kids right now. And Levi making some noises and that Jaxon is pleading him to stop making them. *laughing*
