O`Hanlon – Round 25: ‘It Takes Two’

Filed under: O`Hanlon — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 11:31 am

Julie and Asia are happy and eager to welcome their future grandchildren.  Are Timothy and Isolde really prepared to be parents?

Isolde loved working in paranormal and she really did enjoy dealing with all things ‘abnormal’, but there was just something very wrong about it coming home with her.  Or, perhaps, being at her home.  The ghost of Agent Superball enjoyed giving her a scare everytime she went to take a bath.  Perhaps it was the memories of all the times Mary had bathed the dog that caused this.  Regardless, Isolde didn’t think it was funny.

Isolde wasn’t surprised when she gave birth to twins.  They seemed to run in the O`Hanlon blood.  They were both boys, dubbed Tommy and Gavin.  Timothy was quite pleased to have two strapping young examples of masculinity in a house primarily dominated by females.  Isolde was just happy to finally be able to hold her babies.  Of course, twins were a bit more than the new parents bargained for.

Julie was happy to help and Asia, too.  Without them, Timothy and Isolde would have probably gone crazy.  It wasn’t that they weren’t good parents, they were, but neither had really prepared enough for twins.  Isolde just thought it would come naturally and Timothy, well, he wasn’t known for thinking about things for long periods of time.  But with Julie and Asia’s support, they made it through and even began to enjoy their little bundles of joy.

Timothy was still job hunting, but in the meantime, was quite happy to spend time with the boys.  He was the only one who was home all day.  It was a strange role reversal, all the women at work and him at home.  He didn’t mind.  It meant he could spend more time trying to imbue some manliness into his little men.  He was just thankful they’d been able to remodel all the pink stuff before the boys joined them.

Babies tend to grow like weeds and before they knew it, Tommy and Gavin were both toddlers, running around and causing all sorts of trouble.

Gavin tried to play it innocent, but Isolde wasn’t fooled, neither were the others.  These two were going to be a handful, indeed…


Note from Mao: So, two months later, and I’m back to playing.  It’s slow going, so I’m not sure how frequently I’ll update.  I’ve also still got a lot of wedding stuff to do.  And I’m writing this after a blissful night of NyQuil (yay spring flu!), so yeah.  Apologies if it sounds kooky! The twin’s names should make it obvious what my fiance keeps naming the O`Hanlons after, lol.


  1. Welcome back!!!!! The twins are such cuties and I love how the women are working outside the home and the man has to change poopy diapers :P

    Haha, thanks! Yeah, it’s definitely fun to switch things up now and again.

  2. Awesome! But geez, more twins? Really now… Anyway, the boys are little bundles of the kyuuuuute! Ahh, Timothy, no you have not been known to think a lot. But that’s okay, we like you just the way you are. I love that he’s trying to man up his sons apparently through osmosis. Good luck with that! lol.

    I know, twins are seriously old hat for me. They were never that rare for me to begin with, sigh! Poor Timothy… but it’s true, wouldn’t change him!

  4. Yay! So glad to see you posting again! Boreal Springs has been greatly missed :)

    The twins are absolutely adorable! What little heartbreakers they’re going to grow into!

    Hey Laura, thanks! I’ve been stalking your blog, but not commenting… bad me. :(

  5. Oh, cute! Tommy is my favourite, I think. Look at that cheeky grin!

    Good to see you around, Mao! I was happy to see you back (even if your updates might be sporadic) and with an Isolde and Timothy update to boot!

    Thanks, Carla! I’m slowly catching up with Sullivan, but I’m sure I’ll get there tomorrow. :D

  6. Oh yay! I was hoping you were still playing. RL is such a bitch. *mutters to self about writing an update for Petalbrook*

    Oh, heck yes I am still playing! I won’t be moving to TS3, I still enjoy TS2. ;) RL is a bugger sometimes.

  7. Yay, Boreal Springs is back! For a while there, I was worried you were giving up on it, which would, well, suck, since it’s probably my favourite Sims 2 gameplay story on the face of the Internet. All those legacies are so overrated.
    I LOLd hard @ the Rescue Me thing. The twins are adorable, though.
    And, um, am I horribly wrong, or does their existance mean that you’ve just reached generation five? Congratulations, anyway :D

    Aww, thanks, Monika! I am so glad folks didn’t forget about it, I was worried. BS will be around for awhile. I don’t plan to move to TS3. And yep, generation five! Woohoo! Also, you caught the Rescue Me reference. :D

  8. Mao, I’m glad to see you posting again. Boreal Springs is one of my favorite blogs. I just went through the wedding thing myself, so I know exactly how you feel. Hang in there! There is life on the other side. :)

    Thanks, Temesha. We’ve got it pretty much done, just last minute things. Doesn’t help that we’re having it at Key West during our vacation, LOL!

  9. …Why the HELL haven’t I checked in lately!? D: Good lord, I have alot to catch up with. Okay, where to start?

    TWINS. WHOO. This particular family seems to like twins, huh? The twins look adorable but Gavin seems to have stolen my heart.

  10. Elecy! I’ve been wondering where you were. :o LOL, my game in general likes twins. Sigh.
