The Zanobi Family
(Dimitri Zanobi is 35)
Narrated by Lucas
I love working at the restaurant, but I don't know how Sophie feels about it. She hardly ever complains, so I think she's not totally against it. But then, when she complains, it all comes out at once, and at those moments I think she must really hate it!
She keeps telling me she doesn't hate it though, but that she misses the kids, that she would much rather be at home and be with them. I get it though, I like being with them too, but kids aren't everything. Soon Emma will be 11 years old, and she will be a lot more independent.
She already wants to do most things by herself. Sophie always pictured Emma going to the restaurant with us when she's older, but I don't see that happening. I think she wants other things from life. If she wants to come with us I'm not going to stop her though.
If she chooses to stay home though, it wouldn't be that bad. Despite what Sophie has been thinking, we still need a nanny, because the restaurant is open late. So when Emma would stay home, it would save us some money.
Since the restaurant is open late, and Sophie can't be with the kids when it's open, I hardly get her out of the house when we have a free night.
So I call my brother instead. We haven't been seeing eachother a lot lately, with kids and work and ..., well life. But now the kids are older, we can go out a lot more.
It's not that Sophie doesn't go out at all. But when we go out, it's after running the restaurant, and we only go to eat something too. For anything else she's too tired.
When it's weekend and the kids are home, we try to be with them as much as we can. We mostly spend the days outside, because both Emma and Julian love playing soccer!
- I'm so sorry for that last picture, I don't like it! I ussually don't take pictures without the roof, and when I do, I just take another one! But this time I forgot.
- It's not like Sophie and Lucas have a bad marriage. Lucas just has another view on life than Sophie. She has family as her secondary aspiration, so she really is kind of family-oriented, and it figures she's not the kind to leave the kids with a nanny and go out. Lucas on the other hand is pleasure/fortune, so like brining in the money, but also likes spending it.
- I hate that sims loose their energy so fast when playing soccer! I don't see a real person being exhausted after playing soccer for 2 hours, and needing to go to bed!
- I know, I really should be updating my profiles a lot more! It's noted on my to-do-list, but that list is getting a little bit too long!
