Title: The Dream
Lot: Strickland.4 - Bulldog, Madelyn, Felicia, Lia, Melissa, Erin, Elijah
Last Visit: Babymakers
Bulldog: Ah what a life. Got a great wife, great kids. Live in a great neighborhood where a guy can spend all his time gazing in the telescope if he wants or he can have piles of kids and make piles of simoleons. He can take a helicopter back and forth to work, and folks who are aliens or vampires are not discrimated against. Heck, that is what Prosperity Falls is all about. That is why I like living here with my family. See that woman getting off the helicopter with me? She is a vampire, works where I work at the studio.
She didn't hang around too long, had to get going she said. The sunlight. But she had accepted my invite anyhow to come meet my family. (That's Roxanna Capehart). Well, I am getting where things are good. Makin' good money, have lots of great kids. Also was fortunate to hire great help to watch the kids when me and Maddy aren't here. Like the time Madelyn had put some food on to cook and then left the pot on the stove simmering, and left for work. When the fire erupted, both the nannies we had at the house put themselves between the kids and the fire.
I am at the top of my career. I am an Icon, like Tryce Capehart. We are thinkin' about doing a film together. But that is a another story. I'll get you up to speed with what has been goin' on around the house. I think last time I talked with you my twin daughters Lia and Melissa had just been born.
Well, they have grown up some. I know these aren't the most flattering pictures in the world, in fact Lia is mighty embarrased I am showing you her pee picture. And Melissa wanted me to tell you she has dyed her hair a darker brown. Her older sister Jeannie was experimenting around with hair color on her little sister and it turned out lighter than what the girls expeted. Oh Jeannie. The last time you saw her, she was just about the same age the twins are now.

Yep my Jeannie spent lots of time in the bathroom admiring herself.
Jeannie: Dad! You are embarrassing me!
Bulldog: Love you anyway honey. Hey, glad you came home this weekend while we are tellin' our story for this magazine.
Jeannie: Let me tell it dad. Okay? Oh, love you too. (lays a smacker on Bulldog's cheek). Well anyway, ok. I did have a birthday, and growin' up to teen and all I thought about boys more than I did when I was a kid. Mom and dad let me call a taxi and go to town by myself. I found this really cute guy at the clothing store. Gawd, but I don't remember his name. But we talked for a while and everything. Flirted a little. But the one that really turned me on was Heath DeLarosa. He gave me my first kiss.
His mom Frances DeLarosa owns a flower shop, the same one that Valentine Capehart used to work at. Lucky for me Valentine and Heath never got togther. Anyhow, Heath is adopted. I met Heath at school, he used to come over on the bus with me after class and hang out. I don't know what ever happened to him.
Bulldog: He is working his mother's shop. Wants to be a business man.
Jeannie: Really? Well, I can forget about him. I am in University now where there are plenty of fish in the sea.
Bulldog: Okay! *wipes brow* Jeannie honey I think it is time for you to head back to school. Here, take the car. (hands over keys).
Jeannie: Thanks dad. See you at Christmas. (lays another kiss on Bulldog's cheek).
Jeannie's birthday wasn't the only one that occured. Felicia grew up to be a beautiful young woman too. It was a mighty rough transition for her though. Had a hard time for a while getting used to it. Melissa was surprised with her big sister's sudden maturity.

That puts me and Madelyn at 6 kids now, with a 7th on the way.
They say 7 is a lucky number. I don't know. If I were a thinkin' man, and I believe I am a thinkin' man, I would say I have been pretty lucky already. Don't you?
