Be Careful What You Wish For

Round 2
2005-2009
Ratner Household
Previous Update/Next Update

Justin Ratner is 22, Louise Ratner is 27, Ellie Ratner is 6, and Clay the family pet.

Last time, Justin and Louise got married and had Ellie.  The rest of the time, they were dodging the rabid Madras and wishing for more babies with no luck.  They eventually adopted a young wolf named Clay and just minutes before the round was up, a lullaby was finally heard.

Slight spoiler since I did not get the family portrait until the next day.

Ellie was promoted to private school after they realized that the family could afford it.  They could until Louise paid $10,000 on the loan from the previous year.

Justin got himself a promotion.

Louise spent the day digging for loan payments, but kept getting nauseous.  She soon realized that she was finally going to have that baby she has been wanting for several years.

It was just Ellie and Justin for dinner that night.  Louise almost miscarried and was ordered to stay in bed.

She was happy to make it to her next trimester while she had a midnight snack.

With no one awake to force her back to bed, Louise spent the remainder of the night reading a cookbook.

Louise eventually gave birth to the twin boys you saw in the family portrait.  The first born son and heir is Lyle with William following along a few minutes later.

Justin:  I think someone dosed me at work today.  I sure hope you’re in the woohooing mood.
Louise:  I’m always in the mood!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 15-06-46-20

Justin:  I hope you are ready for round 2.  I know I am.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 15-07-48-50

Louise: I don’t think I’ll survive round 3!
Justin:  At this point, I don’t even need you to be conscious.  Just lay back and let me do you until I die.

The fear of infertility is a thought long since abandoned.  Louise found herself pregnant again soon after the marathon of sex all over the house.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 16-30-08-26

This pregnancy was just as bad as the first.  She had several close calls, but she managed to keep the babies.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 16-30-42-27

Yes, I said babies.  Another set of twins was born.  Rose and Tyler.  The latest four all have blonde hair and brown eyes with what appears to be Louise’s skintone.

Lyle

and William have their birthdays.

At this point, Louise just needs to think the word woohoo and she gets knocked up.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 17-42-27-69

Louise is only able to do toddler skills for a few hours a day.  She just hopes Justin comes home in a good enough mood to help out.

Around lunchtime, Justin gets another promotion.  He stays home only long enough to hit the engergizer and go then it was back to work.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 17-46-39-58

After teaching Lyle to talk, Louise was able to hit the energizer too.  She spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning the house.

Rose

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 17-50-13-64

and Tyler have their birthdays.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 17-53-24-79

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 17-54-18-48

More skilling commences.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 17-57-16-08

Louise finally gives birth to a single baby, Curtis.

…and immediately wants another baby and 10 babies.  I check with Justin and he wants 10 babies too.  I lock both wants in since neither can have birth control and Louise’s ideal family size is 7 kids anyway.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 18-07-57-66

With four toddlers to skill, the next year went by really fast.  Soon Curtis was joining them after his birthday.  We also notice that Curtis is the first child with Louise’s hair color.

Ellie does not mind being ignored really.  She is pulling a fairly good B+ at school and she has also maxed her creativity skill.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-02 18-12-14-69

Even Clay is doing really good.  She has only learned to stay so far, but she gets regular baths.  She does not like fighting with the toddlers over her food dish though.  In retaliation, she has taken to peeing on Ellie’s bedroom floor.

Notes:

  • Dear God, that woman ended up fertile!  They definitely do not require the services of a fertility specialist after all.  They both want 10 kids, but I will probably just let them drink elixir to survive until the kids start moving out to complete that one.
  • Nothing much really went on except skilling toddlers.
  • Poor Justin was the recipient of the ROS roll 2:  Woohoo immediately (or in this case after work) three times without stopping unless someone was on the verge of death.
  • Ellie will finally be a teen next round!  I am pretty excited about that.  I am hoping she gets some interest in one of the boys in town (or girls as she will roll for her gender preference after her birthday).

Taxes:  $4,000, the family is now almost completely broke.
