In the last update—Klaus reached the top of the Natural Sciences career and maxed all of his skills. He bought a vacation home in the mountains and treated the entire Turner family to a retreat. Tiffany couldn’t find a job in Education, so she decided to become a Theorist in the Science career. Philip and Amaya moved back to the Windsor home after Amaya got knocked up on vacation.

Season 8—Summer

Klaus and Tiffany Turner finally had their house to themselves since Philip and Amaya had moved out. Things were certainly much quieter without them around. Klaus and Tiffany had a good life together, though. They had plenty of time to do the things that they enjoyed. Klaus was very into fitness. He went jogging and drank a protein shake every morning. Klaus had other interests, too. He liked tinkering, robot crafting, and especially reading. Although he had already maxed all of his skills, Klaus could still enjoy reading just about anything. Tiffany was still working on learning everything she could as well. Her favorite hobby was her gardening. She loved nature.

It didn’t seem like it was possible, but it was time for Klaus and Tiffany’s five year wedding anniversary. They celebrated by eating the top layer of their wedding cake that they’d saved.

“I’ve been thinking, Klaus. Seeing Amaya pregnant has made me want a baby of my own. It’s so quiet in the house right now. I know Will and Daniel would both love nephews. What do you think? Should we try for a baby?” Tiffany asked her husband.

“I think we should go upstairs,” Klaus replied while winking at her.

Tiffany got pregnant on the first try, but unfortunately, she had the worst case of morning sickness Emerald Isle has ever seen. The poor girl would throw-up two or three times an hour. She’d race to the bathroom, throw-up, start to feel better so she’d stand up, only to throw-up again. She couldn’t keep any food down at all. Her doctor had to actually put her on medicine to try to keep her from passing out from starvation, but the medicine didn’t really seem to help much. She was constantly sick her first trimester.

No woman had ever been happier to finally reach her second trimester.

It was time for Klaus to go to work as an Ecological Guru. He considered staying home. Klaus didn’t have to go to work often, but when he did, he went for long trips around the world. He was gone for weeks at a time, and he worried about leaving his pregnant wife home alone. Still, he knew they would need the money, and it would be a very long time before he’d be able to reschedule his trip, so Klaus decided to go ahead and go to work.

Elizabeth Windsor came over to give Tiffany and Amaya Lamaze classes. She’d delivered four babies of her own, so she was definitely a qualified instructor. Tiffany and Amaya were both apprehensive about childbirth, so they wanted to learn all they could from her.

No one anticipated Tiffany going into labor right in the middle of the class.

“I can’t be having the baby yet. Klaus won’t be home for weeks!” Tiffany cried.

It wasn’t the sort of thing that could be stopped, though. Luckily, once Elizabeth pulled herself out of shock from Tiffany going into labor so early, she was able to successfully deliver the baby without a hitch. Tiffany gave birth to a healthy baby boy, whom she named David. He had her eyes.

Tiffany couldn’t wait for Klaus to get home to meet his son. Unfortunately Klaus was in a part of the world where there was no cell phone reception, so she couldn’t even call him with the good news. Mommy and baby just anxiously awaited Daddy’s return.

“I’m a father,” Klaus said with awe once he finally got to hold his son. He was so proud of his new family.

Klaus didn’t have to go on another ecological job for quite some time, so Tiffany was free to go back to work if she wanted to. It was hard for her to leave David, but she really wanted to reach the top of the science career. Before long, Tiffany was a mad scientist.

The timing was perfect, because just the next day Klaus’ brother Will called her to let her know there was finally a position available in the education field. Being a teacher had been Tiffany’s lifelong dream. She’d even gone back to college to get an appropriate major to get herself a teaching job. She’d never dreamed it would be so difficult to get into, but luckily Will let her know the minute that position was posted. She applied and was immediately accepted. Finally, Tiffany was doing what she’d always dreamed of: teaching. A teacher’s work schedule was much more appropriate for the mother of a little baby, anyway.

Author’s Notes

After playing houses full of sims, it seemed like almost nothing happened in this round with only two sims. I’m very excited to continue playing this family, though. I know Klaus and Tiffany are going to have beautiful children. It just wasn’t a very eventful round with Klaus already at the top of his career and Tiffany spending the majority of the round pregnant.

Oh, and I thought my game was glitched when Klaus went to work. I'd never seen that work outfit before and there was no carpool for him to get into, so I was certain my neighborhood had just exploded. Somehow Klaus got some sort of Adam and Eve outfit. Maybe it was a naughty sims virus or something? Nope, just how that job actually is in the game. Ha ha ha.


  1. Ahh, so you've never topped natural Science before? I guess it would surprise the first time around. Especially if the sim is unfit. David is cute. So she was the one seemingly about to die from morning sickness. Glad Tiffany finally got her dream job.

  2. Good for Tiffany--she's doing well. I love that outfit, it cracks me up. Did he come home all in green, except completely stinky? Most of mine do, but I recently had one who came home with ordinary, mixed needs--I thought it was set, but possibly not.

    David is a cutie!

  3. David's cute. I get so excited when I see this house come up. I love Tiffany and Klaus...I think they are some of my favorites.

    I bet this did seem easy, that's happens with me to. I start with a family of 7 or 8, then go to a house of 3, then to a house of 2, and then back to 7 or 8, and then to 2 or's just insane to jump into those big houses, and then have the easy small ones.
