If there was any day that Wolfie needed some good news today was it. Luckily for him his wife always had a way to put a smile on his face.
When he was a teenager Wolfie must have caused so much worry for so many fathers and they had a legitimate right to be concerned about him dating their daughters. Now the tables have turned and Wolfie was the father and it was his turn to worry, well everyone knows what they say about payback it sure is a bitch.
Wolfie's first worry was Brandon. He was making all of their lives a living hell. Night after Night this boy showed up looking for Sandi and he would not leave until Wolfie had to scare him off their door step.
Every night that boy would run away with the look of fear in his eyes, but he would be back again the next afternoon. Brandon just didn't understand the word no, but then again his father didn't either. I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
Wolfie's second worry was Dylan. Dylan was a nice enough kid and Sandi like this one a whole lot. They were always making googly eyes at each other and they looked like two love sick puppies. It was way too much for Wolfie to take.
Wolfie was thankful that Dylan stepped in that night at the bowling alley and helped his daughter but now they were dating. This unleashed a whole new set of worries for him.
It was also hard for him to accept Daddy's little girl had a new man in her life and as much as Wolfie did not want to, he had to. His little girl was growing up and getting ready to be on her own.
Wolfie still had another worry and this one was the biggie. Sandi finally told him what her future plans were and he was not happy at all. He knew he was going to have many sleepless nights ahead of him in the near future.
Sandi: Daddy I decided to go into the law enforcement field. I really want to be a police officer like Uncle Jules.
Wolfie: That is a dangerous job. You will be putting your life on the line every time you go to work.
Sandi: I'm not scared Daddy, I can handle myself.
Wolfie: Like you handled yourself with Brandon.
Sandi: If Dylan hadn't showed up, Brandon would have been on the floor in pain. I was getting ready to kick him where he lives and then I was going to release the wolf. Besides you really don't have to worry too much, when I'm a police officer I'll be packing heat.
Wolfie: What are you trying to do give your old man a heart attack? Packing heat? A gun? I really do not like the sound of any of this.
Sandi: I'll have to carry a gun if I want to catch the bad guys and to protect myself. All police officers are required to.
Wolfie: its just way too dangerous for you. Why don't you get a nice job as a lawyer instead. You can still make sure the bad guys go to jail in that career
Sandi: But I don't want to be a mouthpiece for the criminals, I want to get them off the street. This is what I decided to do with my life and I'm going to do it. You already told me that no one but I should decide my life. Well I have, I just need you to have a little faith in me.
Wolfie: I do have faith in you and you are right you have the right to choose your own life. There is something you need to understand and that is that I'm your father and I will always worry about you. If anything ever happened to you, it would kill me.
Sandi: I'll be fine.
Wolfie: Well before you are off to uni, we are all going to take a little vacation. There is something I think you need to learn before going into this career.
Sandi: Sure Daddy, I'll be happy to go
Wolfie: I'll tell your mother to get ready.
Sandi: Before buying any airline tickets, I think you better go talk to Mom first. She was a little bit sick this morning and every morning for the last two weeks. I think she might have something to tell you.
Wolfie: What could that be?
Sandi: Talk to her so you two can tell me what I already figured out.
Wolfie went to talk to Abby about Sandi's career plans and the vacation he had in mind. Abby agreed they should go but she told him so was in no condition to travel. She just found out she was pregnant and she thought it best if she stayed home to take care of herself and the new baby. He offered to put the trip off but Abby said that Sandi's safety came first and their time was limited. Sandi's birthday was just around the corner so it was now or never.
Before leaving Wolfie went on a little shopping trip to the bakery, he filled the refrigerator with Apple Pies and Apple Cobblers. He knew he would have a coronary if he had to go through the teenage years again with another daughter.
Wolfie arranged for the first flight out and they arrived in China. He did bring her here to learn something but he was also happy to have a little extra time with her. He wasn't looking forward to the day she moved out, he was going to miss her.
Sandi: Let's see, you brought me here to China so I could.....
Wolfie: learn Martial Arts.
Sandi: I didn't think it was to learn how to make egg rolls.
Wolfie: If you are going to go into such a dangerous career, I just want you to be prepared for everything. Let’s go to the Martial Arts Academy.
Sandi jumped right into and picked up the skill right away, but Wolfie had another mission to take care of.
Wolfie: Hey Jiang Lee, come over here I have to talk to you. You see there is this almighty force that controls me and she thinks there should be werewolves in China. I'm going to have to recruit a local.
Jiang Lee: Any local in China would be honored to be a werewolf.
Wolfie: I'm glad you see it that way.
Wolfie: Don't fight it. I'm an Alpha Wolf, this is going to happen.
Wolfie: Now you're a wolf. You can thank me later.
For the rest of the trip father and daughter spent some quality time together, studying Martial Arts.
They learned how to meditate and to zenaport.
They even learned a new way to "Practice Fighting"
Wolfie looked at his daughter in amazement. It seemed like yesterday he was walking the floors and singing songs from Grease to her and now here she stood in front of him a beautiful young woman with her whole life ahead of her. If there was ever a time he needed Emit's time portal this was it, he wanted to go back to that point in time and do it all over again. He once thought taking care of Sandi was the hardest thing he ever had to do, but that was until now when he realized he had to let her go.
Sandi: Daddy, I don't know how to thank you for all of this. You made it clear that you hated my career choice, but you are helping and supporting me anyway.
Wolfie: Of course I support you kiddo. Now I want you to go out there and make me prouder than I already am.
Sandi: I certainly am going to try to. You’re the best Daddy, I love you.
Wolfie: I love you too but just do me one favor, don't mention anything about packing heat again.
Sandi: Never again. Guess I better hide it from you when I'm actually carrying a weapon.
Wolfie: Enough already. Let’s go home, you Mom should be getting ready to have the baby soon.
They got home just in time, Abby went into labor the very next day.
And Wolfie went into panic mode
Wolfie: What should I do? What should I do?
Abby: How about TAKING ME TO THE HOSPITAL NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wolfie wasn't even calm enough to drive, Abby had to do that.
I guess all those Apple Pies, Cobblers and anything Apple you can buy didn't work. They had a little girl and they named her Valerie. Wolfie was doomed to go through the teenage years with another daughter after all.
But after seeing her and holding her, he didn't mind it one bit. He was able to do it all again without using Emit's time portal.
Wolfie: Hey there my little pumpkin, your sister loved 70's musicals but I hope you like 60's Sitcoms:
[u]♫There's a girl I know who makes me feel so good
And I wouldn't live without her, even if I could
They call her Valerie, I love my Valerie♫
To be continued......
The Prom rolled around again, I think it comes up every two sim weeks but I had so much trouble with this one. She was able to ask Dylan to be her date and he did show up but it was snowing and they changed out of their formals into outer wear. The limo left without either one of them so I clicked on the school and Sandi went by herself and Dylan was in the house, yet I was getting messages about him being at her side the whole night.
This last part is what had me laughing because Dylan figured out a way to be in two places at the same time.
While I had the message that this picture was being taken.
Dylan was playing table tennis with Abby.
I was going to try and take some pictures of them dancing at the wedding venue and make it look like the Prom, but Dylan already aged up so not possible now.
Why in the world did HE Faint seeing her turn into a werewolf! Abby does that but I never seen him do that before. One thing for sure is Sandi won't ever do that, she has the Brave trait.
