Life with three toddlers wasn’t so bad when you got into a bit of a routine. Most of the day was spent learning new things using their blocks, tablets, and other toys.
Irma was a master with her blocks and would babble on and on to James about how to stack them just right.
He pretended to understand, but still didn’t quite get it. He couldn’t wait until he could stack them as well as his big sister.
Joanne, the littlest reader of the family, was amazed by her Wabbit Tablet. She spent hours staring at the words and pictures on the screen, and it almost seemed like she knew exactly what it said. Perhaps one day she’d become a famous writer like her namesake, Joanne Rowling.
At bedtime, Fleur tucked Irma and Joanne into bed and read them each a story.
Eddard helped James learn to use the potty while the girls were being tucked in.
Look at that sleepy little face. Poor little dude. ❤
Eddard tucked him in and before he even made it to page three, he was out.
Early the next morning, Ginny and Penelope began working on a portrait of a young woman. They wanted to paint the same picture and compare once they were both finished.
Hermione was officially the only Potter child in school, now, and she didn’t seem to mind at all. She loved learning new things and especially loved reading books. She was always the first in her class with her hand up to answer every question from the teachers. So when she had to get up early to catch the bus, she did so with a huge smile on her face.
When the paintings were both finished and evaluated, Penny realized that she was just one day away from becoming an adult. She decided today she would pamper herself. She spent the day at the spa, followed by a trip to the salon and out shopping for a whole new wardrobe. She felt like a completely different sim!
When she got home that evening, Eddard hardly recognized her.
Everyone was almost ready for bed, but she reminded them that tonight was Irma’s birthday. She sat James and Joanne on the potty to avoid any potential accidents during the celebrations.
Then, while Penny baked Irma’s cake, Eddard gave her a quick bath.
Happy Birthday, darling Irma!
After cake and presents, Eddard helped Penny put the twins to bed. He was sure going to miss helping his mom out and seeing the little ones grow, but he knew it was time to leave the nest.
The next morning, Penelope Potter finally became an adult. Raising 13 children has made her wiser, but thanks to her makeover, she certainly didn’t look any older.
Happiest of Birthdays to you, Penelope Potter. ❤
What a bittersweet day…. After she blew out her candles, Penny said her goodbyes to Eddard and Fleur.
She watched as they walked away together to their new house, just down the street. At least she knew they weren’t too far away from home. ❤
