Aaaand we’re back. Things in the Ivey household are running along smoothly, everyone is really excited for the new edition to be.
Paolo occasionally missed his days of endless partying over at Partihaus…
…but he was excited to start a new life and his family together with Summer. He even read a few parenting books.
Life had its’ ups…
…and its’ downs. They were still struggling to pay their bills on time. Paolo’s athletic career wasn’t too lucrative, and Summer being a hungry herbalist and struggling artist was just barely enough to make ends meet.
To make the situation even worse, Summer’s water broke.
Ahem. As I said, Summer’s water just broke.
Summer: ”Yeah, yeah, I heard you. I read the books, and I know what’s next. Let me just finish my microwave pastry, alright?”
Summer: ”Okay, fine! Let’s do this. Breathe…”
Summer: ”Breathe… Actually, this is rather painful, I- Are you sure we shouldn’t go down to the hospital??”
Sorry, love, can’t hear you from out here. Carry on.
It’s a boy!
Meet baby Jasper Ivey.
Summer’s maternal instincts seem to shine with their absence.
Summer: ”Shh. Be quiet you thing, you! I’m trying to eat here!”
Theeeeere we go.
Summer: ”See, this isn’t so hard. I can totally do this. Now if you excuse me, I’ll just…”
You’ll just? Oh, I see. Let Paolo do all the parenting. Good call, he seems pretty good at it, actually. All autonomously, too!
Paolo: ”I know, I know. I’m awesome.”
And modest, too…
This is where Summer snuck off to, by the way.
Summer: ”Shh. I’m sleeping.”
Summer: ”I mean, I guess it’s kinda… cute. When it doesn’t cry. Or smell.”
Luckily, Summer has other talents. Like fixing the broken things around the house.
Summer: ”At least these things come with a manual, unlike that baby.”
Jasper; your son Jasper. I thought you read all the parenting books, Summer?
Summer: ”Okay. I kind of lied. I skimmed it. But I read the important parts, I swear.”
Now, where did you run off to? Summmmmmerrrrr?
Paolo is not pleased. Not pleased at all.
Summer: ”Ahhh, sweet bliss. Peace and quiet. Nothing is broken, leaking or screaming. Just me and my plants.”
Summer: ”I’m lucky I have Paolo. In more ways than he knows…”
Jasper made it all the way to
creepy backflipping his birthday, without being taken away!
Jasper rolled Active as trait, with the aspiration of Rambunctious Scamp.
Being a father comes natural to Paolo, who goes straight to helping Jasper with his homework.
Paolo: ”That’s my boy, all right!”
Jasper: ”Mom! Mommy! Moooooom!”
Summer: ”Shh. Mommy’s sleeping.”
