Narrated by Annie
Owen really is a joy, and I love spending time with him. He's a really happy child, and almost never throws a tantrum.
He's 2 years old now, and is becoming a little bit more independent. I think I'm the only mother who's not too thrilled about her kid getting more independent, but I love it when he's little.
Mom tells me she felt the same when Abby and I were growing up, and that she's feeling the same now seeing her grandsons grow up.
Since there a few days a week mine and Erik's hours overlap, mom has suggested she'd watch Owen. Owen adores his grandmother.
Of course mom can't just sit and enjoy a good book when Owen is sleeping, so the nights she's watching Owen, we usually come home to a completely cleaned house.
And sometimes she even prepared dinner for Erik. I have to admit that I can imagine it's nice for Erik to come home and have a home cooked meal, since I'm not a great cook.
On my days off, I usually do something with Abby when she's free as well. It's fall, but the weather still is nice, and the boys love the park.
I really love it that Brain and Owen are so close in age, they like playing together and are always picking up things from the other one.
When the kids are playing Abby and I get a chance to talk. We don't see eacht other as much as we used to, now that we each have our own family, so every those moments are kind of precious.
Catherine and Sya's kids are too little to play with Brian and Owen, but I'm sure that when they are old enough, we will be having a lot of playdates! In the mean time we try to meet up at least once a month.
It's not like we have to go out, and stay out untill the morning, just dinner and some nice talks is more than enough. At the moment we all have only one topic though, and I think it's going to be like that for some more years to come.
On the nights I go out with the gang, Erik looks after Owen. He always tells me it's a boysnight. He loves his boysnights.
I'm pretty sure Owen loves those nights with his dad's individed attetion as well.
Erik and I have been talking about having another child, and we both feel we're ready. We both want a large family and we don't want there to be huge agegap between our children. So we decided to try again.
We didn't have to try long; I just found out I'm pregnant!
- So Annie and Erik are having another baby. Annie rolled the want some time ago, as well as Erik, but I forgot to lock it with Erik. I didn't let them try, they did it all on their own, so I kind of put faith in their own hands. Annie is due in June 2022.
- I'm anxious to see this baby, and I'm hoping it will be a blond one. It's possible since Kürt, Annie's dad is a natural blond, so Annie carries the gen, and Erik also is blond. I have way too many black haired sims running around in SimsVille!
