"So we had to move to a bigger house. Not that I'm complaining, and mom and dad said that it was because we -the children- are growing, and we need more room."
"But the real reason is that mom is pregnant... again! God, my parents breed like rabbits. Gross much!? Though, it's super cool to actually own a home. I mean, I don't own it. But it's nice. I even got to pain my own room! Yes, I finally have my own bedroom!
And I have no idea where this new baby is going since I am refusing to share my room. I just got and and if Lola moves back in with me I'm screaming!"
"So dad is really excited about the baby. I guess mom is too, I really can't tell. According to them I don't know. Even though it's totally obvious that she's going to have another baby. I can tell now. Her boobs are bigger and she's always hungry. But dad wants to tell us soon. So now I have to act all surprised and excited. I'm not excited! I really though Ricky was the last."
"And since she's knocked up, I had to help out even more around the house. Now that I'm older my mom has me cook dinner three nights out of the week. I don't mind though. But still, it would be nice not having to help cook and clean all the dang time."
"But she's throwing up twenty four - seven. So she needs the help. And dad is at work... working. So he's not around until after dinner. And now he's talking about picking up more hours, since, you know, and new mouth is on the way soon."
"He worries about her being sicker than normal with this pregnancy."
"Mom isn't too worried. Even though she's sick, it isn't as bad as it was with the rest of us, or so she tells him."
"I may be out of elementary school now but I still make time for my sisters. I mean, it's not as if I have anything else to do!"
"Plus, I enjoy hunting bugs with Becca. Lola thinks that we are weird and bugs are icky. But I don't pay her any attention. I love collecting incests and so does Becca. And it gets me out of the house for a while, even if it's just the front yard. I would love to collect all the bugs in my collection case. Maybe one day I will."
"Even though I spend time with them, Becca can still be rude. She thinks it's super funny that I'm growing breasts. It makes me feel really uncomfortable. She thinks it's funny, but did it even dawn on her how I may feel about them?"
"I look myself over a lot, trying to get used to the changes that I'm starting to go through. First the boobs. And I just noticed that I'm starting to get a "womanly" shape. I'm so not looking forward to getting my period. How embarrassing!"
"It's hard enough trying to fit in with the older kids. They think I'm young and immature, and to top it all off, I have braces. Not cool! I can't wait until they come off!"
"And my only friend is Dallas Johnson, and he won't be joining me at school until next year. We do still talk on the phone though. But as much as I love him as a friend I don't want to get caught hanging out with s 6th grader. So I don't invite him over to hang out like we used to."
"Not only is my social life suffering at school but so are my grades. I mean, I'm not getting C's or D's, but my parents are used to me getting A's period. And now that I'm only bringing home B's my dad decides to have a talk with me. Grades are important, blah, blah, blah. Really? I'm doing the best that I can!"
"It doesn't help that Lola is now the new "Golden Child" around her. All straight A's. Just like what I used to do."
"Becca on the other hand isn't doing so hot. She is getting all C's. But does dad talk with her? Nope, she still has time he says. But I'm in high school now, grades will determine my future what if I go off to college. I'm not even thinking about college. I'm in seventh grade for crying out loud!"
"And Lola has no problem rubbing her success in my face. I just smile and deal. One day she'll be in high school, and then we'll see how well she does then!"
"As a reward mom makes Lola her favorite dinner, roast beef. And she's so rude. She doesn't even wait for for us to join her for dinner. She just digs in like a little pig, stuffing her face."
"Maybe I make a big deal out of small things. It's just, since I've turned twelve so many things have changed and are changing. I feel funny when I watch TV shows like Wild Cats. I get these knots in my stomach and I feel all weird inside. I get those same feelings with I seem Tylor. He's in my class, and my face gets all hot and my palms sweaty."
OMG! These two do breed like rabbits. Soon as they moved in to their new house they went to break in their new bedroom. They didn't try for baby, but Jessica got knocked up from risky woohoo. Really? I had though I placed her on BC but I didn't. They just bought the house in the same gated community that Sarah's family lives in. It's a four bedroom house. And now there is a new baby on the way. *sigh*
I'm really starting to like Rose. She's entered into her teen years and she has braces. LOL And sadly, only one friend who is still in grade school.
She rolled the go on a date want this play session, so I took that as her budding sexuality. She wants to talk to her mom about it, but the poor woman is beat. I'm surprised she didn't have a miscarriage. She was in the red almost the whole time I was playing them. Guess she has a uterus of steel. LOL
Rose isn't attracted to anyone yet, but she is BFF's with Dallas and she's starting to become friends with Tylor. So I figure it will be one of those two who she'll have her first crush on. But time will tell.
Rose really does do a lot around the house. She helps out with Ricky and she cooks a lot of the meals. But Jessica needs the help. And Mathew is sleeps as long as he can before he goes to work.
I have harder grades in my game now, so Rose has dropped a grade and now bringing home B's. I think she'll do better as she continues with school.
