Generation 1.4: It's All Coming Back

 A few hours later Rosa brought home little Jimmie Kaiden Tobin.

 After Rosa had gotten Jimmie to sleep and fallen asleep herself. Lana and Kevin came home. They snuck into their daughters bedroom to see their new grandson. Despite the less then ideal circumstances they couldn't have been any happier.
It wasn't long before Rosa was rocking a toddler Jimmie to sleep.
 It wasn't long before Rosa's adult birthday came around.
"Rosa it's your birthday you shouldn't have made breakfast." Lana said.
"It's OK mom. I like cooking." Rosa said with a smile
"Honey why don't you take Jimmie out to the park for a few hours today spend some time just the two of you." Kevin suggested.
"Sure dad that sounds like a great idea! What do you think Jimmie?" Rosa turned to her son and asked.
"Yes park!" Jimmie said.
 After spending most of the day at the park and having a picnic lunch there. Jimmie and Rosa came back to the house Lana was waiting for them when they got there.
"Hey mom, what's up?"
"I think you should go upstairs and take a look at your room. Then go take a look at Monika's room."

 When Rosa went up to room she discovered a completely different room. One of the first things she noticed was that her parents had left all her pictures. Including the ones of Evan she had been scared that her parents might have taken them down and tried to get rid of that part of her life. She still loved him though as much as she didn't want to... The other thing she noticed right away was that there was no longer a crib in her room. She knew that Jimmie would be moving to a big boy bed soon but he still needed a crib for awhile longer.
Then she wallked down the hall into her sister's room and there it was a whole room for Jimmie. Rosa liffted her son into the air and said "Your grandma, grandpa, and auntie love you very much I hope you know that. And your mommy loves you very much to!"

Before Rosa had a chance to grow up. Lana passed away.
 Soon Jimmie was starting school unfortunately Rosa's new job as a background extra at the film studio conflicted with the time Jimmie's school started.
"Be good today." Rosa said to her son.
"Don't worry mommy I'll be fine." Jimmie said smiling
"I know Jimmie." Rosa said as she got in the car to go to work. As soon as she was clear of the house she began to cry.
 In the middle of the night Kevin passed away.

Rosa was glad not to miss out on Jimmie's first day of high school her hours at work had changed now that she was working on a TV show.

After Rosa got out of work she had quite a surprise.
"What are you doing here?" Rosa said.
"I saw your show and came to see you." Evan said
"So what after all this time you just decide to stop by and say hi." Rosa said.
"I know this is a long shot but I was kind of hoping you would maybe consider...." Evan started
"Taking you back!!! No way! You left me and your son! If you didn't want to be a part of our lives then why should I believe that you want to now!" Rosa said.
"I made a mistake. I know I messed up! You don't think I haven't regretted every minute that we haven't been together. When you told me you were pregnant I was scared I felt like I ruined your life I blamed myself I felt guilty for what I did. and then that day in the hospital when I first saw Jimmie I just thought that he would have a better life and be happier without me. I couldn't bare to face you I felt like I had messed everything up..." Evan said.
"Wait you were at the hospital after Jimmie was born?" Rosa asked.
"Of coarse I was as soon as I heard he was born I was there. I even was able to hold him but I felt like I had messed up so much already that I didn't want..." Evan began.
"I can't stay anymore. I'm already late getting home and Jimmie will worry. I can't take you back right now... but I'm willing to listen to what you have to say... Jimmie has prom on Saturday night what do you say we go out for drinks and talk about this." Rosa offered.
"That sounds good. Thanks for at least giving me a chance to explain myself." Evan said.
 When Rosa got home Jimmie had already fed himself and was working on his homework.
"Jimmie, Have you ever wondered about your father." Rosa asked him.
"Of course I have." Jimmie started. " When I was little I used to sneek into your room and look at all the pictures of you with him. I used to wonder why he left but then I just decided that he was gone and wasn't coming back so there was no point getting upset about it now."
"You have no idea how much like him you are..." Rosa said starting to tear up.
"Mom please don't cry..." Jimmie said as he got up walked around the the table and gave his mom a hug.

The next day Monica came back from boarding school after graduating.
"I already have a place. I just thought I would stop by and see you and Jimmie before I moved in." Monica said
"Well I'm glad you stopped by. I have something to tell you anyway." Rosa said.
"Oh god you're not pregnant again are you..."Monica said.
"What! No! Evan is back..." Rosa said.
"After so long... Why?" Monica said.
"I don't know but I'm getting drinks with him Saturday night while Jimmie is at prom." Rosa said.
"Does Jimmie know?" Monica asked.
"I asked him about it last night but I don't think he suspects that his dad is back..." Rosa said.
" I want to tell you to stay away from him." Monica started "But I know you're still in love with him. So I guess just see where it goes."

"So what did you want to say?" Rosa asked
"I just wanted you to know. I'm sorry. I never should have left. I was young and scared and right now all I want is to at least have the chance to be back in Jimmie and your life. I understand if you don't want me back I screwed up especially after sneaking in to see Jimmie but running away and not seeing you."
" I was going to make it seam like I wouldn't let you come back... but just being here with you makes me realize that I never stopped loving you and hoping you'd come back. But now I have to think about  Jimmie too. I'm willing to let you back in but I need to talk to Jimmie first..." Rosa said
"I understand. And just thank you for even giving me a shot.

By the end of the night it was just like old times. They ended up going back to Rosa's house.

When Rosa woke up the next morning she wallked downstairs to find Jimmie.
"Jimmie, I need to tell you something." Rosa said
"Ok what is it?" Jimmie said.
"It's your father he's upstairs right now.... and he wants to meet you but I can make him leave if you don't want to talk to him."
"I want to tally to him." Jimmie said.
 Evan gave Jimmie the same speech he gave his mom. Surprisingly Jimmie was OK with his reappearance however that might have something to do with the fact his dad is the governor.
Over time the three of them became a nice little family.

Evan even proposed to Rosa.

  1. Challenge notes: So I just remembered something I forgot to mention a while back... When Kevin retired his pensions showed up as -6002. And I was curious what would happen well he did in fact lose 6000 Simoleons a day.... I went through almost all of Jimmies child and teen years with a total of 74 Simoleons in the family funds...
