Jessica Ebadi (28), Bryce Ebadi (3), Bridget Ebadi (3)
The D'Sims aren't the only family with twins. For Jessica Ebadi being a mother of new twins has the extra challenge of also being a single mother. Knowing that she wouldn't be able to do it all on her own, Jessica hired a nanny soon after the twins were born.
Nanny Autumn came highly recommended by the Harrises, but Jessica wasn't totally impressed with her at their first meeting.
The nanny's personality left something to be desired, but she was very good with the children, responsible, attentive, and careful in the kitchen. Jessica hired her to work during her normal working hours, even though she planned to use her vacation days and take time off while the babies were small. The very first day Autumn came to the house, Jessica skipped the carpool and took the opportunity to take a much needed nap and catch up on a few phone calls while Autumn watched the babies.
For Jessica, being the mother of toddlers seemed even more demanding than being the mother of infants. There didn't seem to be enough hours in the day to meet their wants and needs.
But she did her best and was devoted to being the best mother that she possibly could.
There were times when she wondered if she was making the right decisions for her and her children. Her relationship with their father had been brief. He had been a prominent citizen in Eden, a much older gentleman, and a confirmed bachelor. Their relationship wasn't official, but when she found out it wasn't exclusive, she was heartbroken. She decided to leave town and make the move to New Eden with some of the younger residents, those that were closer to her own age and make a fresh start. It was only after she made the move that she discovered she was pregnant. She didn't tell the father, her former lover.
Sometimes she wondered if that was the right thing or the wrong thing to do. She knew if he knew about the twins, he would do the responsible thing and help with them, at least financially, maybe in other ways as well. But she didn't want him to want to be with her because of them. Even though she was furious with him for the way he treated her, a part of her still loved him. She didn't know how she would handle her feelings if she saw him again and decided it might be best to just focus on her children for now and forming true friendships.
She truly appreciated the new friendships she was forming in New Eden, with sims like college student, Genesis Sartor, who offered to stop by and lend a hand with the babies.
She had the money in the bank, but didn't get the check in the mail and got an unwelcome visit from the repo man. Next time, she vowed, she'd pay better attention to the due date.
