Wednesday is the only kid in the family who is unsure about her future. By the time, I was her age I knew that I wanted to be a sports star like dad. Mikaela always wanted to work in business.
Her goal was to become some sort of CEO or CFO someday.
Mikey wanted to follow Mikaela.
Merle decided to follow his heart.
He always had a knack in playing guitar and painting.
But, Wednesday seems like she is going to soak of everything possible.
Right now, she is obsessed with astrology, chess and cooking.
Even though, she burned her first batch of muffins I was so proud of her.
Once I came home, I decided to throw a birthday party for mom and dad.
Seeing Anoki was something that made realize that my parents are going to live forever.
No matter how Supernatural they are.
Tarik and Wednesday sat down to play a game of chess.
I’m not sure who won the game.
All that I remember were the giggles echoing through the house.
I’m starting to settle into the idea of having a child.
Maybe, I won’t raise a brood of nine like mom and dad but, having two kids sounds reasonable.
Tarik always says that he is ready whenever I am.
But, I realize that I just started my job so, I will put that idea on the back burner.
At least until I reach level seven of my career.
I think that Wednesday has an imaginary friend.
She mentions someone named Tyreese from time to time.
Years ago, Miranda made her imaginary friend Merle a real boy.
He became like a brother to all of us.
It is a bit strange that he married Mikaela but, its nothing new in the Sim world.
I’ve heard of people having alien babies so..to each their own.
My house was full of Reese’s a few hours later once the party began.
It felt like old times.
Mom was so radiant.
Its crazy to think that she raised nine and gave birth to four.
She’s truly my hero.
Mom married both Anoki Moon and Leighton Sekemoto (dad) but, she never put us in the middle of it.
She just kicked Anoki out and went on.
He cleaned up his act enough to be accepted into our family once more.
Dad was okay with this so long as the family was happy.
Strangely , dad is still stuck in the grunge era.
But, I’m down with that.
I can’t believe that our family is already into their second generation.
That is so crazy just yesterday we were all preparing for Mikaela’s graduation.
Now look at all of us grown up, time surely does fly.
Mikaela sat down to eat cake with Gage Briody Reese, Miranda’s husband.
He is the new father of Serena Briody Reese.
I met her right before I went back to school.
Mom held hope that Miranda would find her place in the world.
She is one of two clones in our family counting Preston Langerak Reese.
He was created by Miranda right after I was born.
Randi felt very neglected and became a loner.
She refused to come out of her shell until Mikaela invited her to live with us.
At that point, Miranda decided to change herself.
Now, she looks amazing with her chestnut brown hair.
Mike and I have always been close.
He made sure to take time with me no matter how busy he was.
Once Mikaela, Miranda and Merle moved out….We were the oldest ones left.
I miss him so much.
Our family is extraordinary with fairies, plant sims, clones, imaginary friends, a natural born witch and one human.
Yet, we never made him feel any less awesome.
As for my half brother Sam, no one really likes him around.
He harbors some serious issues against us particularly against Wednesday.
I pulled my dad to the side to ask about it.
Apparently, Sam refused to move in with him and mom.
He wanted to stay with Grandma Yumi which was his choice.
Yumi claimed that he did not want to have any brothers or sisters so that was his loss.
Yet, I felt the need to invite him to the party for old time sake.
Wednesday was thrilled that everyone came to the party even Sam.
She invited them all back to her birthday party which was coming up pretty soon.
Mom and dad still can’t believe how mature she has become.
Let alone the fact that most of us are grown now with our own families and careers.
Generation 2 has only just begun with Clary and Serena.
All eyes are on Mikey and me to add little one to the family next.
Wed made sure to kiss and hug mom and dad before they left.
Wed missed mom and dad so much but, she wanted to be closer to me which why she left home.
That night like clock work a UFO appeared outside of my room.
It had funny timing because the zombies were roaming around town a la the full moon.
I resisted going outside to investigate but, I did it anyone.
I found myself floating in a pool of light.
I should have known better.
I came back with no memory and an overwhelming fear to hide under the covers.
What did that chick do to me?
This new gnome appeared on my door step.
It is an Easter gnome.
Nothing out of the ordinary considering how I grew up around a half dozen of them.
So I guess it should not have surprised me when I woke up to find one perched in front of the television watching the news.
The sound woke up Tarik who was super pissed.
I giggled under the covers at him yelling in frustration at ” the stupid gnome”.
If he only knew what they are capable of.
I caught a glimpse of Wednesday sleeping so peacefully.
While Tarik was at work and Wed went to school the house was pretty much quiet.
So I went out to visit Merle and Mikaela.
I found Clary at home alone.
It freaked me out to I played with her until the babysitter showed up.
Then the little fairy disappeared.
Later, I went to visit Randi , Gage and Serena.
They were delighted to see me.
I cast a good luck charm on Miranda considering the cards that life dealt her.
Being a clone in this town is not easy.
People called her a demon, soulless and godless.
She would come home crying every day.
Then I played with Serena for a bit.
Wednesday went out to wander around town.
She completed her homework and then continued on her adventure.
He sat down enjoying his concoction while I gagged reading my cook book.
We found ourselves locked in another embrace later that evening.
Wednesday went to work on a masterpiece of some sort.
That next morning Tarik awoke with a smile on his face and made breakfast.
We alternate cooking as we did when I was growing up.
However, Tar needs more experience so I let him take the reigns more than often.
He sat together with Wed and they ate breakfast together.
I am so proud of how close they have become.
This family is pretty close knit so that last thing that I want to do is to bring in another Sim who is anti family like Anoki was.
Mom did the right thing booting him out.
I bumped into Mikaela in town.
My concern about Clary being left alone scared me so I approached her about it.
She too was worried but, said that she would talk to Merle.
I took the initiative and went to Merle myself.
I confronted him about the situation.
He was so embarrassed.
Apparently, they were overwhelmed with work as well as losing their home.
Mikaela was bit too proud to admit it.
So I immediately suggested that they move in with me.
It was only fair.
They came over in a taxi and the rest is history.
Mikaela changed her style immediately.
Meanwhile, Clary and I hung out together.
If the future in left in her hands then I am extremely optimistic.
She is a superstar already and is barely four years old.
I took the time to make her hair look like princess Leia’s complete with the buns.
A weight was lifted off of Merle and Mikaela.
They seemed more relaxed once they moved in.
I can see mom in Clary’s face along with Mikaela and Merle.
She is so beautiful.
Mikaela has grown into an awesome mom.
Her bond with little Clary is unbreakable just like mom’s is with all of us.
Wednesday is convinced that there is another world in outer space.
She spends way too much time looking through the telescope.
Could she be more like Randi and Mike??
Mikaela and Wednesday sat down to eat the fruit parfait that she prepared.
Wednesday talked all about her badges that she earned in the scouts.
She is acing all of her class and one step closer to being the eight high school graduate and the sixth college grad in the family.
Our family legacy is filled with wealth , education and family.
Who could ask for anything more.
Mrs. Lindsey Sekemoto Reese Barajas, signing off.
