If you’ve played any of The Sims games then I’m sure you’ve realized that we’re all a little bit like Sims in our own way.
Two days ago Kris and I became aunts. It was a wonderful experience and we’re delighted at the newest member of the family.
When the baby was born, however, Kris and I ran around like headless chickens.
We’ve never been aunts before, as our sister has never been pregnant. We didn’t know what to do, we didn’t know what to think.
In the Sims, when someone has a baby, the other Sims in the house usually gather around and panic while watching the birth.
Kris and I might as well have done that same thing except we were in the waiting room and not watching our sister deliver the baby.
But we did panic. There was lots of panicking.
The last two days have been a whirlwind of emotions. We’re all exhausted, mentally and physically.
So last night I didn’t want to do anything but watch TV and that’s just what I did while, ironically enough, Kris played The Sims on her computer.
I wanted some coffee. I got up from the couch, left our office, walked across the hall, and entered our bedroom.
No, we do not have a coffee maker in our bedroom.
I stood in doorway looking around my dark bedroom wondering what I was doing and why I was in my bedroom.
It took me a couple minutes to realize what exactly I was supposed to be doing. If I wanted coffee I needed to go down the stairs and into the kitchen. Not my bedroom.
You know when you cancel an action on your Sims and then they just stand in one spot and kind of stare off into space? Yeah, that’s how I felt.
The past two days happened unexpectedly since our nephew decided to arrive early. So I’m hoping to get back into some sort of routine next week.
Then maybe I’ll feel less like a Sim.
What are some of your Sims moments?
