The Love of Music

When we left the Petersons last week, James was ready for his first day of school and Renard had just had his toddler birthday. Brooke is working in the Entertainment field although she really wants to break into music. Dallas is happy with the pleasures of life and working towards becoming a professional party guest. Although neither Brooke or Dallas are family sims, they have a lot of fun with their boys.

Hi, I'm James and the first kid born into the second generation of Prosperity Cove. I have a really cool mom, dad, and little brother (even though he likes to wear a pink tux). Let me tell you what's been going on this week!

My first day of school I won this amazing award. I guess my parents being so caught up in music is rubbing off on me!

A couple days later, I brought home an "A+" on my report card. Mom and I were so excited. Renard just wanted to get out of his crib.

Mom taught Renard to talk just like she taught me. The first thing Renard told Mom was that he wanted a teddy bear. I think he's going to be stuck with that silly talking bunny thing.

I thought I'd try out a couple of my dance moves. I may need to work on them a little more through.

Boy, Dad caught a bad break on that decision. His boss should have told him what kind of party it was going to be. Oh well, he doesn't seem to be too worried about it.

Mom's not much into cleaning, but she likes to do it herself so she knows its clean.

Yep, told ya. Renard didn't get that teddy bear he wanted, but he talks and laughs with his little friend while Dad's at work, Mom's cleaning and I'm at school.

I thought I'd try to make my own breakfast, but things didn't go so good. I ate my muffin anyway since...

Mom was busy getting Renard out of his bath and...

I really didn't feel like eating cereal again.

A lot of good it did for Renard to have a bath since he went out on the deck after it rained and played in the puddle.

Mom came home with a promotion. I know she's happy she'll be singing for an audience now.

Dad was off for a few nights so he was up with Renard teaching him to walk. It was a nice surprise for Mom.

Mom got another surprise that morning. She finally found her start in the music industry. She didn't get to do her lounge singing, but this is where she really wants to be.

I've been watching some shows on TV about outer space and alien abductions. I'd better keep an eye out for any aliens around here.

So far all I've seen are some shooting stars. (At least James knows the proper use of a telescope)

Wow, this could really pay off. I've been a pretty big contributor to the family funds this week!

Renard tries to do everything I do. I definitely did a better toddler dance though.

Dad really loves taking care of us and snuggling us.

Renard's got Mom laughing and talking to that stupid bunny now!

Way to go, Mom!

One day after school, I brought home one of the younger kids in the neighborhood. We played Cops and Robbers until it was time for him to leave. Boy, did we have fun!

Mom brought home a promotion and...

Renard grew into a child.

The next day, Dad ran into one of the neighbors. Her husband, Rodney, got mad at Mom last week because he thought she was spying on him.

Dad invited Julia in for lunch to apologize and discuss the situation a little further. I think she's going to talk to her husband.

Another good decision, Mom!

I met my new friend's twin brother and invited him over after school. We got along pretty good and played Red Hands most of the afternoon.

When Mom got home from work, I ran out to greet her and we talked music until...

I grew into a teen right there in the driveway!

James Peterson, Teen
Likes: Blonde Hair and Facial Hair
Dislikes: Black Hair
LTW: Have 6 Grandchildren
Personality: 2/1/10/10/3

Dad and I talked music some more over a bite to eat.

Then Mom and I had a blast doing some smustle dancing!

Dad came home with a promotion that night. I think some of the music tips I gave him helped out.

Dad loves to relax in the morning on the back deck with the newspaper. He says that sometimes it's the only place he can get some peace and quiet.

It's easy to see that Mom is loving her work, another promotion!

Good decision to promote yourself, Dad!

It looks like he'll be working days for awhile now.

Here's our little family at the standard cereal Sunday morning breakfast before Mom and Dad both head off to work.

Dad, what were you thinking? You know Renard loves his pink talking bunny. I hope Renard never sees this movie!

Mom got up Monday morning with the oddest look on her face. I hope she's okay.

And so concludes our week with the Petersons. I sure hope Brooke is alright. (snicker, snicker) It's just sad she finally found her LTW and now she'll be off from work for awhile.

Points: none, but fun


  1. Wow your neighborhood is having a baby boom! Its so exciting seeing them grow fits James. I really like the house, its simple but really neat.

  2. James is turned on by facial hair? lol, he's going to meet some interesting women at uni ::giggle::
