Chapter 2.4: The One Thing

Room decorating, new job title, and getting ready for Scott to grow into childhood. Busy times for Luke Collins.


 

Day 22 (Sunday)

131

The Collins Family

Luke still couldn’t stop holding and playing with baby Scott. He was able to get one day leave of absence for the birth of his child. That was for Friday. He took vacation days for the other two.

Dina ended up quitting her job. She wanted to be a stay at home mom rather than complete her aspiration of being a  Master Mixologist. It was far more important though that Luke completed his aspiration of having a Successful Lineage. And her being home, she could assist with that.

One thing they discussed when the baby was born, that the for the Legacy to be a success, the heir should do their best to complete the aspiration they have. If there’s more than one child in the family, the other siblings would be there to help the success of the heir’s aspiration. Therefore, Luke should complete his. And to complete his, he would need to keep his job right now. Scott is going to need toys when he gets older.

‘Roadstead’ Mall

Since Luke had to go back to work tomorrow and Scott becomes a child on Wednesday, now was the best time to go shopping. He went back to the mall he got his hotdog costume at when he proposed to Dina.

Got any toys?

The same sale associate that helped Luke find his hotdog costume was working.

Luke: Hey there. That hotdog suit worked out great. Now I have a son because of it. Is there a children’s section in this mall? I have a room to decorate.

Luke was very impressed he could design a bedroom for his son. Must be the kid in him.

I got this

After about an hour of extensive training, Luke was ready to be a bartender.

Day 25 (Wednesday)

Today was the day Scott Collins would become a child. Luke and Dina were excited because of the sleepless nights since his birth. It was also sad, because he would no longer be the cute little baby they were cooing over.

Scott grows up

No more crib

Scott’s favorite color ended up being red, but Luke thought he’d grow into the blue room for now, or they could change it later during father and son bonding time.

    • Thanks. It was funny when he grew up. Most of his default outfits were red. I was tempted to change them to either blue or just mix and match but decided not to. I kept with the red theme he had for his outfits.

      • I almost always inadvertently give my Sims favorite colors by making all their outfits the same color lol. Sometimes I do it on purpose (esp. in identical twin situations), but a lot of the time I don’t.
