Babies 56 and 57


I'm posting this today, on October 2, because it's my BIRTHDAY!


This post is my birthday present to you guys!!!  Enjoy.  <3

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Having quadruplets was tough work.  They cried constantly for attention.  One mother for four babies was definitely not enough, no matter how experienced I was or seemed to be.

Fortunately, I had the best backup I could ask for.  The teens, Levona and Jason, were "assigned" to the two baby boys and Luke and I "assigned" ourselves to taking care of the baby girls.

Then, every once in a while, we'd rotate positions etc.  It was quite a handy system.

We decided to age the quads up as soon as possible.  Not that we didn't like the baby years, but we all agreed that it would be much easier to take care of them as toddlers.  On second though, I'm not sure what we were thinking.

Rishon, baby 52, had my blue hair and his father's orange eyes.  He was also happy all the time.  His fun-loving personality was something to look forward to.

Jirou, baby 53, was a carbon-copy of Rishon.  He had the blue hair and orange eyes combo.  I really liked the look of that because everyone knows orange and blue are complimentary colors.  Jirou was a giggly baby and he loved music.  During his naptimes, I'd play some classical music for him to listen to while he was asleep.  I'm not sure what it does exactly, I've just heard that playing music for you baby can make them smarter.  ...Or something like that.

Primalia, baby 54, was the only one of the quads to get blond hair and my blue eyes (vampire style).  Her hair grew in thick curly locks that I accented with a bow.  I think she looks pretty darn cute!  She can be a little bit whiny at times but other than that she's pretty well behaved.

Lastly, Venus, baby 55, had her father's pale green skin just like her sister.  It was strange that only the girls got their father's skintone.  Anyway, Venus also had my blue hair (none of them got their father's hair) and green eyes.  She was very playful and loved to crawl around.  She never sat still unless the camera was in her view.   She was definitely photogenic.

The teens, Luke, and I worked on the triplets' skills right away.  I taught Venus to walk, she really enjoyed that.  It was much easier to have her walking than me having to carry her everywhere.  She was also quite adventurous and getting into everything.

Luke played with Rishon.  He loved banging on those drums.

Perhaps he'll start a band when he gets older....  For now, he enjoys teething on the drumstick.

Levona taught Primalia to talk.  Other than that, Levona likes doing the girls' hair.

Jason worked with potty training.  He was quite the trooper.  That job was definitely not easy.  When I offered to do it instead he told me to go take a bath and have some quiet time.  I was and am so proud and grateful to have all this help.

The next challenge father was the famous Berry Sweet Sim, Merlot Pinot Noir.  He has purple skin, hair, and eyes.  It was too bad I wasn't able to meet this famous sim in person but bearing his children was the second best thing.

I was in the living room when I overheard Crispin talking, to his imaginary friend, Candy, I assumed.

"My mom says that someday soon, she's going to find a potion that will make you real.  Like me!"

That sort of saddened my heart.  I really hoped that Luke and I would be able to make this mystical potion, if it even existed.

School started for the kids.  After school had been going on for a couple of months, Levona texted me:

mom, meet us by the door.  we have a surprise for you and dad. ;) 

I wasn't sure what that meant but at 3:00 sharp Luke and I stood by the front door.  A car pulled up and not two, but four pairs of feet started walking up to the door.

"Don't look now but I think we have company."  I warned Luke.

"Looks to me like a little more than company."  He replied skeptically.

"I think that might be the friends that the kids have been talking about recently."  I whispered to Luke.

And we were right.

"Mom, I'd like you to me Amie Donahue."  Jason was so polite as he gestured to the girl standing next to him.

At first glance, I could tell Amie was a shy.  She sort of held herself in a slumped position.  I knew she and Jason were lucky to have each other.

"Hi Ms. Smith, I'm Amie."  We shook hands.

"And who's this?"  I asked, glancing over at Levona and her dark-haired friend.

"Ashton.  Ashton Bailey."  The tanned boy said, holding out his hand.

"Isn't he gorgeous?"  Levona threw out.  Boy, I'd have to watch this pair.

"Mom," Levona asked, "is he okay?"  At first I didn't know what she was talking about.  Oh, she's asking if I approve.  I realized.

I met Luke's eyes and nodded.  Then I turned back to the kids.

"Yes, just remember to be careful okay.  You know what I mean."

Jason and Amie blushed but Levona gave Ashton a disappointed look.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


Levona and her boyfriend had gone upstairs doing who knows what and mom and dad went to get the kids ready for bed.  It was just me and Amie and I was as nervous as ever.  But I sucked in my breath and went through with what I wanted to do.

"Amie, you are the most wonderful thing that's ever happened to me.  I want to spend the rest of my life with you.  Of course, we're too young to do that so for now I'm just hoping you'll let me take you to the prom.  What do you say?"  I handed her the bouquet of flowers.

She looked at me with a kind and surprised expression.

"Yes.  I'll go with you Jason."

Her lack of enthusiasm hit me like a bullet but I didn't let that faze me.  I smiled at her.

"Aww, I can't wait!  Can you stay the night?  I'm sure my parents will allow it."

She stood there.  "Umm, I think I have to go home."

As I was about to go and get the door for her she pulled me to her and pressed her soft lips to mine.  I didn't do anything at first, afraid that she'd go away but after realizing that this was true, I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her even closer.  When we finally broke apart we were both flushed in the face.  She averted her gaze.

"Wow, you are a great kisser," was all I could think of.  Jeez was I lame.

"I really like you Jason and I can't wait for prom.  Will you come with me to pick out a dress?"

I wasn't expecting that.

"Of course!  I'd love to.  Thanks for asking."

She gave me one last kiss and I brought her to the door.

"Bye Jason," she said over her shoulder.  Then she walked down the steps to her ride.

I stood on the deck and watched her drive off.  I was a lucky, lucky man.  Boy was I lucky.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


Ashton came over almost every night.  I could tell mom didn't really approve of him as my boyfriend but she tolerated him enough.  I, on the other hand, loved him so very much.

"You're so beautiful," he whispered to me after our last make-out section.

I looked at him and studied his features for the millionth time. His skin was a beautiful golden brown and it was tough too, not soft and delicate.  His nose was perfectly aligned in the middle of his gorgeous purple eyes.  His hair was coarse and it felt so good between my fingers.  It was the perfect length for someone like me.  He was a jock, the captain of the football team.  His muscles were definitely well-defined and hard as a rock.

"Thanks, but you're even more beautiful," I breathed as I leaned in to kiss him again.

Our make-out sessions never got too extreme.  The farthest we had gotten was onto the bed making out but we had our clothes on so nothing could happen.  Tonight, I could tell he was thinking something different.

He started sticking his hands up my shirt.  I froze instantaneously and he did as well.  Being the gentleman he was he asked, "Is this alright?"

"Yes," I finally replied.  I wasn't sure what to do but he sure did.  We kissed some more and his hands moved down to my leggings.  I kept my hands in the same spot.

He paused, "Are you ready?"

My heart was racing.  This would be my first time and I wondered if it was his.  He seemed a lot more experienced than me but I hoped that he hadn't done this before.

"Have you done this before?" I murmured in reply.

"No," he finally said.  Then he shoved off his jeans and pressed me to him, his kisses getting more and more harsh and delightful.  Okay, I was convinced.

"I'm... ready."  I said.  Then he pulled me onto the bed.

"Wait!"  I said, pulling away and getting up.  He studied my movements as I tiptoed across the bedroom toward the door.  After locking the door, I hopped back to him and nearly pounced on him.

"Now where were we?"  I resumed.

Afterwards, I got off the bed and put my discarded underwear on for my pajamas.  Then I crawled back onto the bed and into his arms.

"Was it what you had hoped for?" I asked him after a while.  At first I had thought he had fallen asleep until he said, "Yes, and more."

He drew circles on my shoulder with his fingers and took a deep breath.  Mmmm, this felt nice.

Unfortunately, nature called and I had to go to the bathroom.  I brushed my teeth and my hair and then tiptoed back into my room.  He was waiting for me and I crawled back onto the bed after turning off the lamp.  I nestled into the covered and fell fast asleep.

We woke up together.  He didn't have any other clothes so he put on the ones he wore the day before.  I didn't mind what he wore (or what he didn't).

I primped and cleaned myself up.  I put on some light makeup and brushed my hair.

"You don't need to do that you know."  He suddenly said, appearing by my side.

"What?"  I asked, confused at what he was referring to and a bit preoccupied.

"This," he gestured to my makeup case.  I stood straight up and looked at him.  "You're beautiful just the way you are, without makeup."

My heart nearly melted.  That was one of the nicest things anyone had ever said to me.

He pulled me to him for a kiss.  Unfortunately, the kissing had to stop when my mom yelled, "Levona, Jason, the bus is here!"

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


Prom was coming up soon so after school one Friday afternoon Amie and I went down to the one clothing/styling place in the entire town.  I hoped Amie knew I wouldn't be much help but I think I was just there for support.

I came into the room with her and sat down in the chair as she stepped up and examined herself.

"Hmmm... I'm not really sure what style dress I should do.  With or without straps?  Should I go short or should the skirt go to my knees or my ankles?  No that's way to long.  What do ya think Jase?"

"Uuhhh..." I muttered.  I had no clue what she was talking about.

"That's fine.  I think I've made my decision.  Just let me change okay?"

"...'kay," I said a bit relieved.  I waited outside in the entrance of the shop place.

"Okay, I think this is it."  She said, coming around the corner.  Are you ready?"

"Yep."  I held my breathe, trying to imagine what she might look like.

She stepped in.

"Oh my plumbob!"  I gasped.

She was the most beautiful goddess I had ever seen.

"Do I look alright?"

"You're the most beautiful girl I've ever known.  Come here."

She smiled and fell into my arms.

She had made her decision.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


"Bleh!"  Ugh, I didn't feel well.  This and back aches were the sure sign of pregnancy.

"Doing alright there?"  Luke asked.

"I'm doing fine, this pregnancy is just like all the other ones but with a hint of Berry thrown into it."
Luke just hugged me and smiled back.

"You know, the kids are getting makeovers, I think I deserve one too."


"Wow Calista, with this new haircut, do you think you're ready to meet my parents?"

"Only if we visit mine during my next pregnancy."  Mom and dad wouldn't be home for a while so it made sense to visit Luke's family first.  My parents were in the Bahamas right now, soaking up some Vitamin D.  Retirement suited them well.

Hmmm, this house looks familiar... I thought, as we walked up to the front door.

"Mom, dad, this is my girlfriend, Calista Smith.  Calista my parents, Levona and Jason."

I said my "hello's" and "nice to meet you's."

These were the two people I had named mine and Luke's twins after.  Levona had pale purple hair and beautiful blue eyes which I recognized to be Luke's eyes.  She was very beautiful, even at her older age.

Jason, Luke's dad, had grey hair that had bits of red, like Luke's hair, in it.  He had purple eyes which would have been cool for my kids, Jason and Levona, to have.

"So, you have a sister right Luke?"

"Oh yes, Lindsey just took off this morning to catch a plane to Bolivia.  She's in the peace corps you know."  Levona added.  I could see how proud she was of her kids as she told me and I hoped she was proud of Luke for his decision to be with a woman who got pregnant this way and that.  We stayed for a while until Jason and Levona politely said that they had to leave to go to their bridge party.

"Thanks so much for having us," I said politely.  Then to Luke I said, "Your parents are so nice, too bad I didn't get to meet your sister."

"Maybe next time," he said casually as he opened the car door for me and started the car for home.

Prom night came sooner than I had expected.  The lovely couples looked so good.

Although there was a bit too much PDA (personal displays of affection) from Levona and Ashton.  I had to clear my throat loudly a couple of times during the picture taking process before they engulfed each other.  But it was good to see them so in love.  I just hoped it would last.

"Bye, have fun!"  I gave a half-hearted wave as they walked themselves out to the awaiting limousine.

"Well, I guess we have the night to ourselves."  I said, looking at Luke.  Crispin and Bartlett were at a sleepover and the quadruplets were all at their daycare that they went to once a week.

"I have a different idea."  Luke suggested.  "You deserve a night out too, my angel."

"Aww, you're so sweet."

"Are you comfortable?" Luke asked.  He was so considerate.

"Yeah, I'm good."  He walked over to his chair and sat down.

We both ordered the soup of the day from the bistro.

Halfway into our meal I threw out what I had been wanting to ask him.

"So, what do you think?"

"Of what?"

"You.  Me.  Us.  This relationship."  I prompted.

He took a sip of soup before wiping his mouth and speaking.
"Well, I definitely don't see anything wrong with it.  I love your kids, and the ones to come.  Even the quads seemed like no problem.  My parents seem to like you so that's a plus.  Is there something wrong?"

"No, just wondering."  I paused.  "I just want to make sure you're not just doing this because you pity this poor woman with too many children."  I looked away and down at my now-empty bowl.  I fiddled with the spoon.

"Now why would I think that.  I know that there is a beautiful, smart, and caring woman right in front of me.  I wouldn't trade anything in the world for her and I would love to spend the rest of my life with her, as well as all the time after that.  Calista?"

"I... I think I should tell you something.  I hope it doesn't change you mind though."

"I don't think it should."

"Well..." I proceeded.  "There's someone else who I really liked, but there was a conflict so I wasn't able to stay with him.  It broke my heart.  But when I met you, I was partially healed."


"Yeah, I'm not sure if I have feelings for him still but...."

"So... you're telling me that you still might possibly like this guy, even though you're dating me?"


"Okay..." he paused making his face in a way I knew he was trying to comprehend the situation.  Then he stood up and the thought of him leaving me right then and there reached my mind.

I stood up and much to my surprise he took me into his arms.

"Calista, I personally do not mind if you like a million other guys.  As long as I know you'll always love me I'm totally cool with that."

I was impressed.  He handled that way better than I had predicted.

"You know what?  I'm good, I'm over Simon.  Why am I talking about a guy who's so yesterday when this amazing man is standing right in front of me?"  I gave him a knowing smile and we kissed right there in that empty eating area.

"Let's go home, my amazing girl."

"Yes, let's."  I was relieved to have finally told him about Simon.  A big weight was lifted off my mind flooding me with relief and contentment.

That night, I fell right asleep in his arms, not even thinking about Simon or the fact that he never returned my voicemail.  I was so content that I didn't even hear the kids come home from their night out.

That morning Levona announced that she and Ashton had won prom king and queen!  I was so proud of them, as well as for Amie and Jason.  Their prom pictures were beautiful, I hung them up on the wall for a quick picture before packing them away to put into the memory books.

Levona turned out to be a real beauty.

[Oh my gosh, and just in case you didn't know, I love this picture of Levona.  As a child and a teen I didn't think she looked as good as I had thought she would look but in this picture I think you can really see her unrealistic Sim-beauty.  I'm not saying she was ugly before (because she was much better looking than real people) but by sims standards she wasn't really up there, if you know what I mean.  All I'm saying is that I really love this picture.]

Jason as a young adult.

[Ugh, to tell you the truth, I really hated this picture, I hated it as much as I love Levona's picture.  I just don't like the pose, it doesn't really suit him.  It gets better every time I look at it though.]

Ashton and Amie grew up too.  The lovely couples looked so perfect together and so much more mature.

Crispin and Bartlett grew up next.  Crispin's watermelon hair shone more and more as he aged with a bright contrast of red, white, green, and black.

"Look, look!"  Crispin shouted gleefully as his imaginary friend, Candy, grew up with him.

Bartlett's imaginary friend also aged up into a teen version of her child form.

The quads went next.  Rishon was so athletic.  His favorite sport right now was basketball and he also loved baseball and biking.

Jirou had an interest in piano.  I signed him up for lessons right away.

Primalia was even more beautiful than she had been as a toddler.

Venus was stunning as well.  She and her sister definitely had that beautiful little nose.  My girls were so lovely!

AHH!!  The babies were coming.  Luke took care of the kids' dinners while I gave birth to twins!

I named the first baby, baby 56, Cherry Chantilly Lace.  Cherry was after Merlot's daughter and Chantilly Lace after Cherry's mother.  She had Merlot's purple skintone which got me excited.

The second twin, baby 57, was another girl I named Apricot Fairy.  Apricot after one of Cherry Chiffon's children and Fairy after Merlot's wife, the girl of his dreams.

Luke took a quick family photo of me, the twins, and the quads and then went off to work on discovering the Imaginary Friend potion.

Shortly after the twins' birth Luke had actually discovered the Imaginary Friend Metamorphism potion (not that I doubted him or anything...).

Luke and I were so excited as Crispin and Bartlett handed the potions to their IFs.

Luke and I were dancing in our feet when we suddenly saw the purple sparkles and bubbles revolving around what appeared to be nothing.

Then we saw them for the first time.

Crispin's IF Candy and Bartlett's IF Callie.  They were identical in features with the dark blue hair and black eyes albeit the skin colors.

Bartlett and Crispin looked so pleased to finally not seem so crazy.  It was hard for me to believe that those two girls had been living in our house without me ever being able to see, hear, or know they were there.

Romance sparked between the boys and their best friends.

Just a few short months later they decided to age up.

They were all so good together, like how Levona and Jason were with Amie and Ashton.

Crispin as a young adult.

Bartlett as a young adult.

Callie and Candy wore very bright and unusual clothing and makeup but that didn't seem to matter to Bartlett and Crispin.

They were so cute together!  It made me sad to see them leave.

[To tell you the truth, I never really thought Bartlett was handsome until I saw him in this post!  He's so good looking!!!  In my opinion anyway....]

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


So sorry about not doing a family update.  I actually have it already done in the next post so expect to see some super cute grandkiddies soon!

Also, I hoped the dinner conversation between Calista and Luke made at least some sense.  I wasn't sure how to approach the subject of Simon.  I'm still trying to figure out what's going on with the whole Simon thing.  I have some ideas but I still need to organize them.  It's like a jumbled mess of ideas in my head and adding school and other real life things and it can get pretty messy.  But don't worry, Simon's still in the picture, I haven't forgotten about him!  Read a small post I wrote about him here if you haven't yet.

Thank you Berry for allowing me to use your sims in my challenge.  Visit her Rainbowcy.  There are also links to Berry's other blogs and stories.  She's written wonderful stories that captivate everyone who read them.  So please check it out!!!

PS:  I know the "linkwithin" widget at the bottom of this post doesn't really fit this type of blog but I just liked it so I put it in.  I don't really care if it seems weird or not. :)  UPDATE:  It has been removed.

Comments please!!  I appreciate the feedback!!!  I can't wait to see what you guys have to say!


  1. I will forever remember this day. *marks calendar*

    Note I'm posting this one short comment before I read the entire post...



  2. Now, on to my usual long comment.

    Levona and Ashton, plus Jason and Annie make such ADORABLE couples!

    Crispin and Bartlett's IF's turned out really pretty: I love that dark blue hair.

    Can the vampire quadruplets get any cuter? I can't help but love their looks.

    And to end this comment, the meeting with Luke's parents is just too sweet.. Hoping that this indicates further development between the two if they're already introducing each other to their families!

    (I'm off to buy you a birthday present via The Sims Store, so expect a email shortly, at at very least, check your Account Page!)

    Again, happy birthday, and have a great day! ♥

  3. The imaginary friends are so pretty. I'm hoping to find the IF potion. :D
    Amazing Post Calista! :D :D :D

    ~Dawn Turner

  4. Happy Birthday!

    I love the imaginary friends, so pretty even with the crazy style and bright make-up they wear!

    All of you children are little sweethearts although some are not so little anymore, they grow up so fast :')

    Great post btw. :D

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY :D !! This post was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC :D! loved it :)

    p.s. how do you make the baby blankies dif colors?! i can't seem to find an answer anywhere :(


    I really enjoyed the two stories with Levona and Jason's boyfriend and girlfriend. Personally I liked Amie and Jason as a couple better. No offense or anything, but I just don't think Levona and Ashton would be pleasant to be around. xD

    To be honest I never thought Levona was that pretty until this post either. But somehow she bloomed into a really pretty sim. It surprised me when I saw her YA picture.

    I loved how Luke was so determined to make the potion for Crispin and Bartlett. That was really sweet of him. And then the fact that he was fine with the Simon situation surprised me. I was all like, "Whoa." :O

  7. Whoa, so many comments to reply to. Okay, here goes....

    @Destiny - Awww, thanks! Not to be a creeper or anything but when's your birthday? Anywho, your comments always make me laugh!!! :D

    I'm glad you liked the introduction to Luke's family. I didn't take enough pictures during their visit so that's why there aren't any pictures of them INSIDE the house so I kind of thought it wasn't that good.

    I just got the birthday present, thank you so much! I can't wait to force my toddler boys to wear it MWAAA HAAAHAAA! Heehee, just kidding! ;) But seriously, thank you.

    I hope I can actually get some simpoints by the time your birthday comes around so I can gift you. I always feel bad when people gift me and then I can't gift them. :(

    @Dawn - Thank you! I'm glad you like the IFs because at first I didn't like how they looked so similar besides their skin tones. Wait until you see their kids!

    @Liana - I know, I miss them already! *tear*

    @Catherine - To change the blankets I use Twallan's Master Controller. Refer to one of my comments on this post.

    @Amanda - Yeah, I have to agree with you on that one, I don't really like Levona and Ashton. They're not really my type. I'm so glad someone agrees with me on the whole Levona thing. I just didn't think she was that pretty until now. I hope the dinner conversation made sense. I kind of just threw it out there.

  8. Oh my goshness! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have a good one! i updated today too! p.s. cant wait to see the grandkiddies!!!!!!! adorable vampire babies and omg ive been waiting forever for you to have berry babies! and i LOVE callie! can i download her pretty please?

    oh and peoples visit my challenge!
    i love your support!

  9. @Catlover: My birthday (and Destiny's even) is the 1st of July. Remember that blog post I did at the end of June/beginning of July? It was in two parts, to commemorate my birthday (plus Destiny's one *roll eyes*).


  10. @Amiee - Thanks, it was great! I can totally upload Callie. I'll let you know when I do. When I do upload her, I will put her under the "other sims" tab.

    @Destiny - *smacks forehead* How could I be so stupid. Of course I remember that post. Sometimes my mind just doesn't work the way I want it. :P

    Okay, next July (hopefully sooner) I'm definitely going to try to gift you.

  11. I figured it would be master controller :P … sad to say, no matter how many times I've tried to install that mod - it NEVER works for me :( must be my Mac or something.

  12. This is great! I love Ashton and Amie for those two, and The quads are too cute. Great work :)

  13. Like the blog stalker I am, I just thought back to this post... I never did guess how old you are!

    You did comment once you were in school... High school, college maybe? So I'm guessing in the teens (15, 16 - 19), or even older, if your in university. :D

  14. @Destiny - Haha, yeah. I don't want to freak out my mother so I'll just say I'm in high school. *cough11thgradecough* :)

    By they way, I was sort of wondering the same thing for you. High school? College?

  15. High school, yes, but the awful thing is... I'm YOUNGER than you! O.O Now I feel ashamed to talk further... *awkward face*

  16. @Destiny - Really? I never would have guessed. :0 How much younger exactly (if you don't mind me asking)? I hope it's not too much cause then I'd feel really OLD.

  17. *coughing attack*I'm 15*coughing attack*

    People actually thought I was 18 once. And that was IRL. I dunno, I don't think I even LOOK older than my age, much less sound older. :(

  18. Wow, you're only 15!?! I thought you were older than that because your writing is so darn good! XD I even thought you were older than me! I'm a bit embarrassed but I think it's kind of cool. We're two people who would never have met in a thousand years in person (I'm assuming).

    I don't have any friends who aren't my age IRL so this is so cool! At least I'm not that much older than you. Only a little more than 1 and a half years. But now I feel so OLD! Bleh! I think it would be so cool if we could chat on FB but the time zones might cause a problem....

    Also, I love that you keep checking up on my blog! I do the same for yours! :D

  19. Yup, I'm totally embarrassed right now... Though it is nice to hear my writing is bearable. :)

    Most likely we wouldn't even have looked at each other twice if we were in the same school. I do my best to avoid the seniors! Probably all of my friends are my age, but there are the neighboring kids who are about 8, who I spend time with. I make a good babysitter, haha.

    Maybe we SHOULD take this to FB... Tell you what, we'll post on each other's walls. I think I'm 6 or 7 hours ahead of where you are, so yeah, chat would be next to impossible. :D
