View Full Version : My Daughter's House
15th Jul 2012, 08:38 PM
My daughter, who is five, loves pink and also loves to play The Sims. Originally we made sim-selves for me and my husband, and they now have five babies. My daughter was the first baby (thank goodness it was a girl - lol). She is now a Young Adult, and has moved out of the house (*sob*) and has become a Fashionista. Because my daughter loves pink, I made this house for her. I thought it was pretty cute, so I will share:

Lucky you to have a child to play The Sims with! Does she love her house? It is pretty cute! Isn't it hard to imagine them grown up and moving out? I'm dealing with that reality now and wish I could go back in time and play with my son again.

She does love it. :) For a while she was content to sit there while I manned the controls, telling me what she wanted me to make the sims do ("Daddy needs to pick up those dishes!"). But now she says, "Mom I want to play The Sims by myself." Which would be much easier if she could read. ;) I'm sure that time is coming soon, though!

That's cute. If the game motivates her, she will learn to read very soon. I shared the game with a young lady around the age of 5 or 6 and she would talk through each thing she wanted her Sim to do and it was just funny. As I listened to her, I felt that I was looking through her eyes.
When my son was little, we would build houses and families together and share neighborhoods. We built some thematic neighborhoods in Sims 1. Ah, those were the days!

Love the house and that you and your daughter play together. That's so cool :) She'll learn to read fast enough playing and I'm sure you'll be teaching her how. I couldn't read until I was 7 actually when I started school but I knew all my letters and what they spelled. Weird I know... but now I have to read everything and I plow thru books/magazines/blogs... anything readable :)

Very cute house. :) I love it!

My dad taught me to read when I was 3. At 3 years old I read more fluently than my brother who was in elementary school.
No offense but a five year old who can't read surprises me.
Cute house, though. :)

That's so cute! How lovely that you play the game with your daughter.

Very nice! The best place for this would be to post your pictures in the Sim Pictures forum, where more people will see them:
Just find a suitable thread, and post the pictures there.
If you plan to upload it to this site, you might like to show it in the CFF forum, where you will get constructive feedback.
Well done, and keep creating!
