Jason: Week Thirty-two, Day Three

"Aw, come on, Lacie.  What'd I tell you about grabbing a toy out of Macy's hands?" Jason had seen his little angel angrily tear the green block from Macy's hand, causing Macy to start bawling.  He'd immediately handed the block back to Macy and moved Lacie to time out.
Lacie mulishly tightened her lips and glanced away.

"I know you understand me!" he said, at a loss of what to do next.  Wearily, he sighed.  "We share in this house, right?" he asked, hoping for a glimmer of understanding in his girl's eyes.
Lacie gaze strayed past him, to where Macy was happily still playing with blocks.  She saw her sister drop the green block and she cried, "MINE!"

Jason shook his head.  "Why the hell am I trying to reason with a 2 year old?"  he muttered aloud.

"Doesn't make much sense to me," Liz said glibly from the doorway.
"Liz! Moudy! I didn't know you guys where heading home this early!" he said, pleased and surprised to see his friends home at last.  He popped up, a smile spreading across his face.
"Yeah, well, plans changed," Liz said cryptically.

Moudy stood behind her and rolled his eyes.  "There's only so much of her mom you can take," he muttered under his breath, earning a hard nudge to his ribcage.

"Well, welcome back Mr. and Mrs. Yavari," he said with a wink.  He'd been so happy to hear that Liz and Moudy had decided to make their little family unit official by getting married.  He'd been sure to remind them that he was the one that had introduced them & was kinda like their personal fairy godfather.
He crossed the room and wiggled the toes of the little boy sleeping in Moudy's arms.  "So this is little Jackson, huh?" he asked, glancing up and seeing his friend's proud grin.

Moudy shifted so that Jason could get a better look at his newborn son.

Jason took in the shock of blonde hair atop of the boy's head.  "He's gonna have your hair!" Jason laughed.  "Hopefully he doesn't inherit your ugly mug!" he teased, earning a sharp nudge in his ribcage.  "Umph!"
"Leave my husband alone!" Liz said with a fake glare, hands on her hips.  She hesitated only a moment before giving a hug. "It's good to be back," she told him.  "How is everything?"

"Good!" Jason told her.  "Hey, there's something I wanted to show you real quick!" he said, grabbing her hand.
"But... I was going..." she started to say, but stopped short when Jason grabbed her hand and dragged her up the stairs.

"I'll just go set up the crib!" Moudy called after them.
Jason pushed his door open and hurried inside, turning around to face Liz expectantly.  "Okay, so what do you think?" he asked, holding his breath.
Liz's jaw almost dropped as she stepped into Jason's old room.  "Oh... my... plumbbob..." she drawled.

She turned her head and took in the new bedroom furniture, sheets and decorations.  It was so much different than how Jason had originally decorated his room - she remembered his tacky orange sports theme with awful clarity.
Her gaze strayed towards the laundry basket and the pile of clothes that never seemed to actually land in the basket.  Now, there was the Jason she knew, she thought with a smile.
Jason anxiously watched her reaction.  "So?" he asked hopefully.  "You like it?"
"Like it? Oh my gosh, Jason! It looks awesome!" she breathed.  "What? Did you get an interior designer?" she teased.  There was no way he'd done this on his own!

"One step better!" he told her.  "Cheri helped me with it!"

Liz whistled low. "Whoa, so that's serious then?" she asked.  A lot seemed to have changed in the short time she'd been gone.
Jason shrugged, glancing away.  "Maybe. I dunno. We'll see," he told her.  "I don't want to jinx anything."

Just then, from next door, Moudy called out,  "Uh, Jason? Why is there a red bra by our bed? Did you have sex in my bed again?!"


Liz zeroed in on Jason's guilty face, narrowing her eyes and pursing her lips, tight with an annoyance.  "Dammit Jason! We're not in college anymore!" Liz snapped, her hand on her hip.  "I can't believe you went in my room!"
Jason cringed.  "Er, I was looking for that!" he said meekly.  Guess he'd forgotten to clean up after he and Cheri had spent some good time in there before his room remodel. 

He checked the watch real quick and flashed Liz a charming grin.  "Oh, look at the time!  I gotta get ready for practice!" he told her, turning to grab his uniform. "Little privacy, please?"
"You are such an infant!" Liz groused, stomping from the room.

Jason made his escape, hoping his indiscretion would be long forgotten by the time he got back from practice.

In her room, Liz glared at the unmade bed.  "We are going to have to burn those sheets," she muttered.

Glancing across the room, she saw Moudy moving her protest signs to the side, making space for the crib they'd bought.  She glanced down to where Jackson was sleeping on the rug nearby and could no longer frown.  Having Jackson was like a blessing in disguise, she thought with wonder.  To think, she'd been confused about whether or not she & Moudy had a future.  But now, she couldn't even imagine life without either of her guys!

She raised her hand up and admired the small gold band.  She'd done it - she'd married Moudy!
Moudy turned around and saw her staring at her ring.  "Hey!" he told her, hitching his thumb towards the signs behind him. "You don't mind that I'm moving these around, do you?"

"No!" Liz exclaimed. "I haven't really done any protesting lately anyway!"

Moudy hesitated.  "So, you think we can just get rid of them? Or do you want to keep them?"

Liz chewed on her bottom lip.  "We can get rid of them," she finally decided.  She had to focus on being a Mom now, not a Rebel without a cause.
When Jackson started crying, she squatted down and picked him up.  "I'll go rock him in the nursery while you set up the crib," she told him.

Moudy nodded, turning towards the large box.  "Sounds good," he told her.  "Should be easy to put together, right?" he said confidently.

Almost an hour later...

Moudy stepped back after finally figuring out how to put in the baby siding and sighed.  Done.  Phew!  That had been a lot harder than he'd imagined.  He eyed the crib skeptically.  He wasn't entirely sure he trusted the silly thing with his precious son! What if it broke?
Turning, he pulled out some extra sheets and changed the bedding.  Man, maybe he and Liz could go shopping for sheets now that they were married.  Her style was a little girly for his taste!

Liz played with the girls while Jackson slept.  She had missed the little stinkers while she'd been in Appaloosa Plains with her mom.  They had grown so much while she'd been gone!
"Hey, babe," Moudy said, leaving their room and standing by the baby safety gate.  "Bed's made & the crib is set up.  I thought I'd head down to the Swap N' Sell & see if anything sold."  Maybe they would have some sheets...

Liz smiled.  "Sure.  See you soon!"

Moudy started to take a step away and then stopped.  "You need anything else while I'm out?" he asked.

Day was turning to evening by the time Moudy made it across town to the Landgraab Swap N' Sell.  He nodded at the two ladies as he passed by.  He heard them giggle and cast a glance back towards him.
He quickly glanced around the store, checking to see if anything caught his eye.
"Afternoon Miss Kathy," he said.  "I was wondering if those consignment items sold."
Kathy nodded.  "A few of the items sold.  You still have the lamp and the guitar unsold," she told him.  "You'll get a statement at the end of the month."

Moudy nodded.  "Great, I'll just go check the junk pile. Thanks alot!"


Liz's arm had begun falling asleep after holding Jackson so much.  Reluctantly, she padded into their room and laid him in his new crib. 
Then she headed back into the nursery to spend some time with the girls.


"YES!" Jason pumped his fist as he exited the stadium.  Jason's impressive performance has earned him a promotion to Team Captain, as well as a bonus of $4,500.  Loved by his fans for his clutch saves and by the coach for his team leadership, he was really starting to play towards that hall of fame spot!

He'd also been offered a partnership at Llama Memorial.  He was now entitled to a share of the profits, which he'd be receiving weekly.  Maybe one day he would buy out the other partners, then he would get even more money!


Jason had toyed with the idea of heading out on the town to celebrate his new League MVP status & partnership, but decided to spend the evening at home. 

He headed straight upstairs to see the girls.  "Hey ladies!" he said in greeting, pushing past the safety gate. 

Lacie quickly crawled to his side, tugging on his pants leg.
Jason scooped her up and tickled her belly.

These days he'd much rather hang with his girls than head to a bar to party!  Must be old age creeping up on him, he thought with a chuckle.

It didn't take too long for Moudy to get his salvaged goods home.  He was pretty sure he could polish these things up in no time to sell and make a profit!

After a quick shower downstairs, Moudy headed upstairs to find Liz.  He could hear her and Jason upstairs in the nursery. 

He approached the baby safety gate and peeked in, finding them trying to teach the kids to talk. 
Fiddling with the baby gate, he finally got it open and stepped in.  "Hey guys, I was wondering if I could borrow my wife," he said, emphasizing Liz's new relationship status.  It still felt surreal that they were married with a cute, little kid of their own!
Liz snorted.  "Night, Macy," she said, kissing the girls head before standing up.  "Night Jason!" she said, hurrying after her husband into the bedroom.
The moment she stepped through the door, Moudy drew her into his arms.  "I can't get enough of you," he told her huskily. 
Holding her face in his hands, he craned his head forward, drawing her closer into his embrace for a scorching kiss.  Liz pressed against him, heatedly returning his kiss. 
He couldn't get her clothes off fast enough before they fell into bed.

"What about Jackson?" Liz asked worriedly, peeking towards the crib.

Moudy pulled the covers over their heads.  "He's too young to know what we're doing!" he assured her, turning his attention to distracting her.

Liz gave up the last of her doubt as Moudy started nibbling on her neck in just the right spot.

  1. Yay, everbody's happy!

    Let them stay happy!

    Please!!

    But hmm Jason's hesitation on his relationship with Cheri... I don't know how to take it. Maybe he doesn't want to jinx it but she's already said I love you (which he never said back!) so...what is he worried about?

    And Lacie nooo. You're so young, fight your evil nature!

    1. Everyone's happy! Yay! I want them to be happy, too!

      Jason's hesitation with Cheri is just a recognition that he tends to rush into things.

      Cross your fingers that Lacie can fight her evil nature! She's already showing a nasty attitude!

  2. Everything is so happy... you're going to do something terrible to them, aren't you? Sims are never this happy for long. Well, grats to Moudy and Liz then I guess. Okay, it was sweet that they got married. Hope it lasts out of the honeymoon- phase.

    Oh Jason. Why are you trying to reason with a toddler? That doesn't work. His room looks great atleast. Cheri has good taste, but what's he so nervous about with her? Is she another golddigger?

    1. I don't have anything terrible planned... right now! Mwah ha ha ha!

      I'm glad Liz & Moudy were able to work everything out! They make such a cute couple!

      We'll see how well Jason's parenting style works out. I think he was a little bit at a loss of how to deal with Lacie's tantrum & was relieved when Liz & Moudy got home.

      Cheri's not a gold-digger, but I did peek & discovered she was another Irresistible sim & is a Heartbreaker. *sighs* We'll have to see if she can fight *those* traits!

  3. Ooh, I like the new room! And Liz' new bedsheets too. And it's super cute how you built a baby gate!

    It's so nice seeing Liz and Moudy happy together. I'm very curious to see how all of this is going to play out!

    1. Phew! It's hard for me to decorate guy rooms! I had to look 'orange bachelor rooms' up online and browse through some photos. Lol.

      I LOVE the baby gate! Can't have the kids wandering over towards the stairs!

      Liz & Moudy are very happy together! They're both doting parents. Hopefully their honeymoon lasts a little bit longer! ;)

  4. Everyone does indeed seem happy. Is Moudy a bit jealous or am I reading too much into things?

    I love Jason's room! Though it is such a man thing to leave clothes by the hamper instead of in it. XD

    1. Everyone is happy! I'm going to try to keep them that way! :) I don't think Moudy is jealous. Thankfully Liz never told him about her doubts relating to Jason!

      It was really hard to think of ways to decorate a room with a lot of orange. I am never going to be an interior decorator! Isn't it such a man thing to leave clothes by the hamper? :)
