BACC: The Sheedy Family  

Huzzah, another uneventful household! Sure, there's babies being born and fires to being set, but overall, pretty quiet in this part of the neighborhood.

The Sheedys moved to their new home Monday morning. Jason pretended to be happy with his new home while his wife, Sela, was there.

But after she left for work...

Jason got started on cleaning and fixing things around the house.

When Sela got off of work that Monday, she headed straight for the dresser. She needed to get into some comfortable clothes, because she was now officially and visibly pregnant.

Jason loved her with her hair down.

Who wouldn't? She looked adorable.

They visited their bar, Bar:None, in hopes of improving their ranking.

The reviewer came to check out the business. After playing pool for a while, he left without saying a word. No news is good news?

This couple is so affectionate.

They had dinner that evening, and discussed their work. Jason was able to find a position in the business career track.

Another thing in the house broke, and Jason, not wanting to risk his wife or their unborn child, tried to repair it.

It was good that he was the one to get the shock and not Sela.

The next morning, Sela woke up and brushed her teeth. It was a big day for her: she'd be delivering a little one any moment now!

She barely made it into the kitchen before she went into labor.

Jason was there to cheer her on.

Sela gave birth to a little girl that they named Melora. She had Sela's eyes and red hair.

The next day and a half were uneventful. It finally came time for Melora's birthday, and Jason was there to help her with the cake.

She definitely has red hair!

Melora wasn't all on her own. Her parents did step in and taught her how to walk and talk and use the potty.

Sela and Jason developed a ritual of playing chess in their spare moments together.

A fire erupted one afternoon while Jason was at work.

Sela was a nervous, panicky wreck, but fortunately Melora was upstairs and they had a fire alarm installed.

The fire brigade was summoned and they extinguished the fire quickly, with no losses to the home.

On Saturday afternoon, Sela finally shared with Jason that she hadn't been to work for almost all week, that she had been actually collecting vacation pay. He was surprised, but the next bit of news was a relief to him. She said she'd be quitting the force Sunday.

Sunday ended quietly, with Jason in the sunroom improving his creativity skill for work.

Picture may be offensive to some. No naughty bits showing, but Sims are nude. I personally think it's just a sweet, since Sela is very pregnant.

Red hair! That's rather unexpected. :C She's quite sweet, though.

And I hate when sims arrive to make a review, and then leave before it's finished, without telling you anything. 8| Secret shopping: doin' it wrong.

I'm not sure how I feel about the red hair with her skintone, but I think I'll find a hairstyle to suit her when she becomes a child.

I don't know how many games of pool Damien Judgey Guy played with Sela, but he could have said thanks. Geesh. I almost always get a good review.

I can see that Jason has red eyebrows. His hair must be dyed.

OMG, you're right! I had to scroll through the photos again, but he is a secret redhead. Vanity, thy name is Jason! This adds a whole new layer to his character, which I like. Maybe he'll become bald as an elder...

I read somewhere that the reporter comes three times and it's the third time when s/he gives the review. :) Melora is precious!

Oh, that's great. Sela will have to visit the bar a little more frequently, then. I hope he says nice things about the bar when he does make his review.

Thank you!

Melora is completely adorable! And I read the comments and did not realized either that Jason was secretly a red head! No wonder that red head gene popped up! :D

How difficult has it been to run a bar and gaming business? One of the sort of businesses I've never attempted yet and it seems really interesting.

Jason is quite the handy one to have around. Really have to like those neat sims and their love of keeping everything tidy!

I had no idea he was a secret red, and I play him!

The bar is tough for me to run. Sela finally got her gold badge, so she dazzles everyone who's considering buying a ticket. That helps, but the combination of that and her pregnancy tires her quickly. Of course, I'm used to regular retail businesses, so this is a huge change for me.

Jason is a good husband, but a bit dull. I'm actually glad to find out that he is a secret redhead, because it's become a seed for his personality.

I, on the other hand, am disappointed by how Melora looks, since I don't see much of her lovely mother in her. But who knows, maybe as years go by...!

I think she's got Sela's eye shape and cheekbones. I'm not quite wild about red hair on tanned skin either. She's growing up nicely, though.
