The Garden Legacy: Khasi Shepard, Ch. 4

We come back to our story to find Christii making her own birthday cake.  She was hoping to set the house on fire because she has absolutely no cooking skill, but she made the cake successfully with no fire.  She figured that it just wasn’t meant to be.  She decided that it was all for the best as she would be moving out immediately upon aging up.

Khasi just can’t help but yell at poor little Rembrandt.  He is heartbroken every time she does it.  But it also makes him so mad!

With Christii out of the house finally, that leaves Khasi as the only one to take care of Rembrandt.  Thankfully, it is his birthday and as a child he can take care of himself.  He rolled Insider, so his traits are Storm Chaser and Insider.  He did not get Happy Toddler, even.  His toddlerhood was pretty miserable.  It would have been worse if not for Mariko and Christii.

They have to be near each other, but they cannot stop yelling at each other.  Even when they are taking care of their own business, they have to bother each other.

It is finally time for the new baby to arrive, and it is a GIRL!  Her name is Tulip and Khasi just falls in love with her.  This child she clicked with.  Mmmm, why Tulip and not Rembrandt?

Tulip is the apple of Khasi’s eye.  She was ecstatic when she became a toddler!  An Inquisitive one, at that!  Such a beauty!

Rembrandt and Khasi are like oil and water!  Whenever they are in the same room, there is an argument about something!  They can’t even eat in peace, anymore.  Khasi just can’t understand why he is so mean to her!  He runs outside to get away from her, but she follows to scold him for being mean.  He was not happy with that!

Tulip went outside to see what the fuss was about and seeing the upset Mommy, she started making a mess to get her fear under control.  She didn’t want Mommy to be mad!  Khasi gave her a disappointed look for making a mess, but then picked her up and loved on her to give her comfort.  “Mommy loves you best. Don’t worry, my little flower.  Nothing bad will ever happen to you while I am around!”

Khasi takes time to potty train Tulip and celebrates her success!

She then plays with her, which she never did with Rembrandt.  Khasi doesn’t understand that her ignoring Rembrandt as a toddler and always nagging and yelling at him might be why he is always so angry with her.

After some play time, Khasi reads Tulip to sleep.  She loves this little girl so much!

The next morning, Rembrandt is playing on the computer when Tulip comes to talk to him.  Rembrandt had thought that the new baby might be his friend, but watching how Khasi dotes on her is causing him to be really jealous and he takes it out on little Tulip.  He yells at her to leave him alone!!!

Khasi gets up and immediately cooks breakfast for her little Tulip.  Ok, so there is enough for Rembrandt, but that is just a side effect.

After breakfast, Khasi gets to working on teaching Tulip about her basic needs, and showing flashcards to help her.  She loves just talking and being around this precious little girl.

When the notification came through her phone that she needed to go to work, Khasi just couldn’t find it in her to leave her baby girl with a Nanny.  So she quit her job so she could stay home and take care of little Tulip.

Then she gets to work writing a song for her little baby girl.  While she does this, Tulip is playing with the toys that Khasi bought for her, and bringing her skills up.  Khasi wanted a Top-Notch Toddler!  And she was going to get one!

Tulip went in her diaper, and thanks to a nifty little mod made by Livvie, Khasi changing her diaper actually made Tulip’s hygiene go up!  Yay, for Livvie!!!

While at school, Rembrandt got in trouble for confronting the bully who was spitting spitballs at him and that made him very angry.  Since he was already angry when he got to school, this just added to his feelings.  He came home from school and threw a massive tantrum before walking into the house with the hopes that he would not provoke his mother.

Unfortunately, it didn’t work.  He came in, got himself something to eat, and Khasi just started nagging and yelling.

Rembrandt could feel the anger boiling up inside him.  He knew he was about to blow!

What tipped the scales was seeing his mom talking and playing with Tulip.  As if she hadn’t just raked him over the coals for NOTHING!

He marched over to them and let Khasi have it!  Little Tulip watched the whole thing with a mighty interest!  She didn’t think she minded that only the big boy was getting yelled at.  SHE wasn’t being yelled at!  No need to get upset!

He took off to play the violin to calm down and she got on the treadmill to try and calm down.
