Rights of Women Part 2

Hey ladies! Looks like Bell has learned to walk!
Ella: Yes she has! My little girl is really smart! I can't wait for her to go to college.
Um, yeah, she can't go to college.
Ella: What? Awe man, we can't do anything!
You can do some stuff, just not everything you want to. It's sort of the whole point of the challenge, sorry ladies. Your great grand daughter will be able to though.
Ella: Great! Long after I'm dead and gone.

Oh look Bell got a new hair do! It's very pretty.
Ella: Yeah, you told me she had to wear it up too, so this is what we went with.

What are you making?
Ella: Pancakes for my loving husband. He gets upset if breakfast isn't on the table in the morning when he gets up

Oh look, Timmy grew up. He has an interesting mix of both his parents.

Maybe not quite so tight Bell.

Ella, you look relax.
Ella: Yeah, Bell is asleep and I'm exhausted and smelly and uncomfortable.
I'm glad you're getting a little time to yourself.

Who is this Ella?
Ella: This is our new kitten Talula. She'll be Timmy's "wife".
Can't wait for her to grow up.

Are you OK?
Ella: I think I ate something.

Bad kitty! Get down!

Ella: I guess I wasn't sick.
Nope. I hope it's another girl.
Ella: Really? Why?
Because if it's a girl you'll have someone else to help with the chores. If it's a boy you'll have someone else to take care of.

Oh Happy Birthday Bell! You sure are growing up to be quite beautiful.
Bell: Awe thanks lady.

Marcus: So I see you're having some problems keeping the house clean.
Ella: Well I've been very tired with being pregnant and having a toddler running around. It should be better soon. Plus now Bell will be able to help out.
Marcus: All right dear.

Helping out your Mom Bell?
Bell: Yes, mame

Doing some shopping Marcus?
Marcus: Yes. No daughter of mine will be wearing pants. I got her something more appropriate.

How do you like your new dress Bell?
Bell: It's pretty. I like the bow.
Yes, it looks really nice.

Bell you helping out your mom around the house?
Bell: Sure am.

What are you doing now Ella?
Ella: Dancing, I really needed some fun.
I see, you just looked mad.

Oh look little Erin Lost stopped by, wearing pants, hum. Oh well. I just had to show her off again, she's adorable.

That's disgusting

So is that. Thank goodness Ella has help around the house now.

Helping Bell with her homework?
Marcus: Of course, a girl needs to know a few things she cannot learn from her mother.
Hum, I won't comment on that.

Bell: Peek-a-boo I see you.

You look confused.
Bell: I just don't understand this game.
Keep playing, just don't tell Marcus, I don't think he would approve.

Ella: Eeeee!!!!!!!!!
Marcus: What's wrong dear?
Um she's having a baby, men.

Ella: It's a boy, we'll call him Gaston.

What are you reading Bell?
Bell: A cookbook, I have to learn to cook. Daddy said I'll have to cook for my husband.

looks like Talula had a birthday!

Looks like the next kitty generation is on the way.

Looks like a typical busy day for the ladies of the house.

Our little man grows up, in style?

It's Kitten time!

Welcome Sarah and Sammy. You know what this means? The house is now full!

Shh, poor Ella is exhausted! With all the housework and child care her responsibility I'm surprised she hasn't passed out yet.

What's going on little man?

Oh it's your birthday! You sure did grow up handsome!
Gaston: Ah, thanks lady.

Speaking of birthdays!

Bell you are so lovely. Don't get too used that outfit though.
Bell: Why not?
It's not appropriate, according to your dad.

Bell: This is all right too. A little hot for spring and summer though.

Looks like the cats are getting along well.

Oh wow, you ladies put in an amazing garden!
Ella: Thank you, Bell and I work very hard at it. She already has a silver badge.
Just the two of you work on it?
Ella: Yes, Marcus doesn't think men should be in the garden. Gaston likes to fish though.

Great job Bell! You'll be able to grow lots of great food for your family!

Gaston you are quite the fisherman!

Marcus: My boy is going to be the smartest kid in his class!

Hi Sammy, welcome to adulthood.

Sarah, you are a beautiful cat. I think you'll be our cat heir.

Oh look Marcus and Gaston are playing catch. I wonder what the ladies are doing.

Working, of course.
So ends this visit. Next time Bell will begin entertaining suitors provided by her father of course.

Rights of Women Part 1

Welcome once again to another Sims 2 Challenge. This one is called the Rights of Women Challenge. It explores the rights US society has given to women over the years, starting with generation 1 having the fewest rights.

If you've read my other blogs, you might recognize "Ella". Yeah that's sim me, all packaged up as a housewife from some time ago.

Hi there Rachel, I mean Ella.
Ella: Uh, hi, who are you? Wait who am I?
Ah yes that, your name is Ella Right. You're a happy housewife. As for me, well that's not important.
Ella: Nice kitty. Hum, what are you going to do with me? Wait you aren't that lady that puts people in a house with 7 toddlers are you?
Oh, that, you heard about that, *whistling innocently* that wasn't me. Let's get a move on.

Ella: So when do I get a hire a maid?
You don't.
Ella:What about a gardener?
Ella: Surely I can at least get a job.
Sorry, no can do. But you do have a handsome husband that loves you.

Oh I guess she found him.

Ella: well what do you want to do?
Marcus: How about starting a family?
He's on my side.
Ella: OK.

Ella: What's with the plain white undies?
Sorry hun that's all you get. At least you aren't Marcus.
Ella: What do you mean?

Ella: Oh, I see.

Oh hey, the welcome wagon must be here. Look it's Ruby, one of the cast offs from the Bachelor.

OK and this is a little strange. Ella meet Rachel.
Ella: You look strangely familiar.
Rachel: You too.
All right, moving on

And what have you made for all your guests?
Ella: Sandwich meat sandwiches.

Ella: Since I have a bun in my oven, why don't you go put one in Phoebe's?

Poor Ella is doing all the cooking and cleaning while Marcus hangs out and tries to make friends. Poor Ella, I already feel bad for her.

Ella put down the knife.
Ella: What, I'm just making dinner.
Oh, OK I thought this had already gone drastically wrong.

Ah look Ella is mopping up a pee puddle while everyone else is eating and having fun.

Felix get down from there!

Ella:Awe man! I just cleaned that!
Hey it means the babies on the way.
Ella: It means I'm going to have to clean the toilet again before Marcus gets home from work.

Looks like we one a new family member arriving.

Meet Timmy!

Ella: Holy cow, jeepers this hurts!

So what is it? A boy or a girl?

Ella: It's a girl! Meet Bell!
Hi baby Bell. Good news that means you don't need to have any more kids, unless you want to.
Ella: No thanks.
All right no more woohoo then.
Ella: What? Why?
See we have risky woohoo around here, so any time you do, you could get pregnant.
Ella: Golly!

Ella: Whose momma's little Bellie Wellie?

Looks like dad got home just in time for the fun birthday celebration. The man only does the fun stuff.

well so that's where we'll leave it for now. Tune in next time to see how our little generation 2 girl grows up and if she'll have any siblings.
