Monday morning, Derek and Yulia made and stockpiled more mac and cheese frozen entrees.
Yevgenya bowled before school,
while keeping an eye on Yedrek, who was boogying away to the stereo in the bowling alley.
Yed even got some attention from the customers!
Genya left for school, and every now and then Yulia had to fish one of her toddlers out of the snow,
but otherwise they happily played with their Charisma bunnies all day.
Mid-afternoon, Genya arrived home from school, and told anyone who would listen about her excellent grades.
She played with Yana, then taught her a nursery rhyme,
before grabbing a nap (and figuring she could do her homework later).
Derek did his best to keep a smustle going out back in the bowling alley.
Yulia went to bed early, and just as she was about to lie down, the home sports venue reached Rank 8.
She woke up in the middle of the night and, as soon as she did, she went into labor.
The couple had their 4th child, their 2nd son, and named him “Yasiu”.
Yevgenya greeted her new little brother with enthusiasm.
Yulia fed her new baby,
and put him into Yedrek’s crib.
Yed went to sleep on the toddler blanket near his new little brother,
and Yulia thought, with a tinge of guilt, ‘I really should do something about decorating this room for the boys. I just didn’t think we were all going to be in this house for so long. Or that there would be so many of us!’
NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR:
Here’s what annoys the crap out of me about this game:
Not only had Derek invited Daisy over to the home sports venue earlier that afternoon, he hugged her twice when she arrived!
Raising the rank of this home sports venue seems to be taking soooooo long. It’s possible that it’s just my perception, because I tend to play the home lot at normal speed (because I have to keep an eye on all 5 family members, AND the butler, who often seems to engage in counter-productive behavior, such as interfering with the toddlers sleeping on the blankets and trying to put them in the cribs), whereas I play Yulia’s Emporium at triple speed.
I got “Yasiu” from “Jasiu”, a Polish diminutive of “Jan” (so, “John”). It’s pronounced “Yah-shoo”, and my brother John’s nickname was “Yosh” all through highschool.
