Diary of a Drifter-House 4-Chapter 5-Daddy's Little Girl



Luckily for us Skyla's toddler days came to an end.


She was adorable and as smart as a whip.  Most of her toddler skills she learned on her own and did a pretty damn good job I must say.  You know she does get that from me.


However she was a rambunctious wild thing too.  She was indeed a handful.




Who grew into a cute little kid.



She did turn out to be a whiz kid I knew she inherited her intelligence from me but she is also a slob.  Its a good thing I have a sim ray with the clean option on mind control.  I'll probably have to use it often.


Tamika and I had already changed her room.  Skyla wasn't a baby anymore and her room needed to grow up along with her.  She absolutely loved the art table and even more to my delight she loved......



the chemistry set I put in my laboratory for her.  We spent hours and hours in there together.


She was a natural at it.  Just like her old man.



No matter how busy I was with my work I always made time to spend with Skyla.


"Who is that Daddy?"

"Skyla, I think it's time for you and I to go in now dear"


Tamika and I took care of our garden every day and continued to build and furnish our little home. We had all the basic essential so now our money went towards decorating the house.  Whenever we spent time together I knew that I truly met my soulmate.


Mom called and invited us to the love festival and I gladly accepted the invitation.


I made sure to throw some petals at my beautiful Tamika and I learned something that day.  I didn't need to graft for dragon fruit, all I needed was an invite to the romance festival.  I'll make sure that Skyla knows that and passes the information onto future generations.


Skyla made her way over to the karaoke machine and spent most of the night there.  Mainly it was because she enjoyed but she had another reason.....


she said that we were being so lovey dovey that it was embarrassing.


I almost missed it but I was working so hard I didn't realize it was my birthday. Tamika and Skyla couldn't wait up any longer and I don't blame them as I did arrive home later than usual.  However there was the cake on the table waiting for me.


I blew out the candles.


and I became old really fast.  One would think its time to retire but not me, I still had things to accomplish at work not to mention finishing Grandma Darlene's legacy.

Diary of a Drifter-House 4-Chapter 4-To Infinity and Beyond



I finally picked up the phone and called that contractor.  I do have to say they did an excellent job with the specifications I gave them for the house.


And the exterior plus some minor furnishing were ready just in time for Tamika's Birthday.


I was also finished with my project and I wanted to give this to Tamika for her birthday gift but she wasn't impressed at all.  When I told her that she could fly to Infinity and Beyond in this, she said she would rather something from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  What is not to like with this great gift?  I'll never understand women.


At least both Skyla and Tamika enjoyed the cake I baked.  I got one thing right that day.




 I figured that Skyla hasn't met him yet (I just hope the fact that he is a ghost doesn't scare her) and I still owed Tamika a birthday gift so I accepted the invite. That turned out to be a bad decision.


Never bring a Wild and Hungry Toddler any of the Festivals.  I couldn't get her any food to eat and she was always taking her clothes off running all over the place.  I had a helluva a time just keeping up with her.


The only thing I could do was give her some of the strawberries I has just picked from our garden.  I gave her a few but she only ate one which really didn't satisfy her hunger.  I was so afraid someone was going to call social services and report us for neglect.


The next big thing turned out to be Jake Walker, the butler that my mother hired when I was a teenager.


Skyla was so cranky we had to take her home before she had a tantrum.  I made her a nice ham and cheese sandwich and she actually threw it on the floor.


That was the final straw.  She was hungry and I knew it. yet she was tossing perfectly good food on the floor.  I had no choice but the reprimand her for her bad behavior.


She wasn't happy at all but she has to learn some manners.


Her mother made sure she ate the next sandwich and than we put her straight to bed after a time out.


The day wasn't a total loss.  I may have not been able to get something nice for Tamika but we did find this lamp which is perfect for Skyla's room.


Maybe I couldn't talk Tamika into a test drive this but I'm ready to explore the the friendly skies.


To Infinity and Beyond!


Here are the results of my first space mission:








My first space mission was an experience I won't forget.  A little scary at first but exciting at the same time.  It won't be long before I find the planet Sixam.  I do think I should make some upgrades to the rocket before trying again.

Diary of a Drifter-House 4-Chapter 3-A Whole New World




The bartender who caught my eye was named Tamika and I spent the rest of the night talking to her.  When the club closed and all my co workers along with the knights were going home I was able to convince Tamika to stay behind to star gaze for a bit.




We started to see each other regularly and I convinced her to move in with me.


I bought her some new clothes and gave her a gift certificate for the local salon.

As for my job things were going really well:






Due to all the promotions and the fact that my bank account was now large enough to hire a contractor to start building a house I thought it was time to make a honest women out of Tamika and start on a family.


So I proposed to her.



And she agreed.



We decided not to wait and we had a private ceremony at that moment.


Because neither of us wanted to wait for the honeymoon.



Soon after my birthday rolled around.  We celebrated at the restaurant but we also made a very important decision that night.


It was time to start on our family so we went home to try.



I was thrilled because this meant that we had to continue trying but Tamika was sad so we had to wait before doing it again.



Oh well practice makes perfect.


Which it did the next night.


As Tamika awoke me to give me the good news.



The third time was the charm.


I thought I would start building now that there was a baby on the way but I think the science is sticking with me.  I started to build a rocket ship instead of a house.


I really should have called a contractor because I was so into the rocket that I lost track of time.  My wife was in labor and we still didn't have a roof over our heads.  Oh how could I let time get by me like that.  I really was in a panic.


I didn't even realize that the ghost of Rachel Patel, my dearly departed Uncle Dashawn's girlfriend was the nurse.  I guess once she died they were able to demote her from doctor to nurse.  Oh well at least the doctor who delivered me would be there for the birth of my child.


Tamika checked herself in.


while I got something to drink and....


played some video games.  I figured someone would find me and tell me where the delivery room was but no one did.


It wasn't until later that I found out that Tamika gave birth to a healthy baby girl. We decided to name her Skyla.


Skyla grew into a toddler and we were still living like a trailer park family without the trailer of course.


Tamika did a really good job in fixing her up as she looks like a little angel.


I just wish that Tamika would change out of that hospital gown hopefully before Skyla graduates college.


Finally she did just in time to potty train our daughter.


I got another promotion at the job which meant it was perfect timing to do something I was putting off.  I picked up the phone and called for that contractor.


It couldn't wait any longer because my sweet little angel turned out to have a wild streak which makes her......


which makes her literally go streaking.  Well I can't have her catching cold so its time for a house.
