Verbon 1 - Fall 2012

Last update/Next update
The Verbon Family
Olaf is 33, Mia is 32, Morgana and Zenzi are 6 months
Mia: Life has changed a lot since I graduated. I'm married now and I have 2 children. Especially the last part has been hard!
I think it has been harder on me than it has been on Olaf. It seems like he was born to be a parent, he's just amazing with the girls. He loves it so much he has been talking about another child, but I really don't know!
Just like me, Olaf loves his work, but unlike me he has achieved something in his career and unlike me he knows what he's doing. It's not like I don't have a good job, but I want more, I want to reach the top, I think Olaf and I are at the same level, but it just feels like he's done more! Maybe because he hasn't been home pregnant.
I try to keep up with everything that has been going on, and read up on a lot of things, but it's not easy. I have to do it in between feedingtime, and with twins it's always feedingtime! I don't want to neglect the girls, and I want to play with them a lot.
I don't know how Olaf does it! Maybe he doesn't want to get higher in his career as much as I do, but he has figured out a routine with his work and the girls! I'm still at home, and I don't have routine, and I hate that. But I absolutely love my girls! I just adore them, I just need to find a system that works!
On top of it all, we don't have any time for each other anymore! So when we finally have a talk, and he starts about another child, I just don't feel like I want another one. I want Olaf and my girls. My girls preferably to be old enough to look after themselfs, but young enough to enjoy them!

Note: I was glad when Mia gave birth to twins, because I was thinking if I should have them another child after the first one. Because Olaf is a familysim I'm sure he's going to want some more, but Mia isn't a familysim, so I really needed some time to think. But the game took the desicion in my place, and blessed the family with twins!


  1. Yep, Mia staying home being pregnant definitely puts you behind in the promotion arena. I hope she's able to enjoy the girls while they are little, especially since they may not have more.

  2. I love when the game decides things for you.

    And I can't imagine how hard it's going to be when the twins become toddlers!

    I love their house, btw. Your neighborhoos has some nice houses, I've noticed!

    And if she was able to keep up her career, the house, and the babies, she would be a superwoman, so don't feel bad Mia!

  3. Yeah, that's really how it is with babies and young children. People forget how physically demanding it is. And playing the game with twins, it seems like it is ALWAYS feeding time!

    Did you use the lot expander mod to make those row houses? They look great.
