Halpert 2: Round 5

Last round, Apple Halpert and Shawn Scott moved in together after college. After a wedding at the local chapter, they both settled into their new careers. Shawn took up the politics track to satisfy his lifetime want of becoming the mayor, while Apple took a job in the education field. Soon, Apple became pregnant and gave birth to twin girls, Rosario and Idina.

And of course, it's 2 am and both the toddlers are up before the parents.

It's about time you two got up. What's the topic of discussion this morning?

Apple: We're still trying to decided whether or not to have another baby. Shawn is happy with the twins, but I would really like to have just one more.

Shouldn't you be at work?

Shawn: Nope. I have the day off today so I'm home with the twins while Apple's at work.

Nice job, Apple.

Apple: Thanks, mysterious voice. Check out the snow... was snowing about 4 hours ago.

Apple: I don't think one more would be that much harder.

Shawn: (Sighs) Ok, Apple. We can try for one more.

I don't think Shawn ever stood a chance on this one.

Are you two ready to be big sisters?

I don't think they're ready to be big anything yet.

Apple: Rosario, come back to Mommy honey...

Sure you can handle another one?

Apple: Well, by the time we have another baby they won't be toddlers anymore.

Um...let's hide.


And the nanny once again lets the toddler pass out on the floor. Nice work, nanny.

Happy birthday, dear Idina and Rosario...

She's looking more and more blond every day.

Idina: Is that a bad thing?

Not really. Just remember that you actually have brown hair.

And their pajamas still match!

So now that the girls have grown up...

Shawn: We're going to start trying.

Oh...right now?

Apple: Um, yeah.

Ok, I'll just leave then.

I think new outfits are needed for both of you...but we'll take care of that in the morning.

I think number three is on the way!!

Hi, girls. How was your first day of school?

Rosario: Good. I made a friend!

I can see that...can you introduce her since I forgot to label her?

Rosario: This is Jenna Beesly.

Nice, Shawn! One lifetime want accomplished!

Idina: Mom, can you help with my homework?

Apple: Sure, honey. But let's do it fast, I'm feeling kind of tired.

Well, that explains why.

Apple: Goodnight, future big sister.

How do you think they're going to do with it?

Apple: I'm sure they'll do fine. Rosario is already excited about it.

Rosario: Dad, I'm worried about school. I didn't get my homework done last night...

Shawn: Don't worry, I'll help you before the bus comes.

You might want to get on that soon then.


What? No is always the right answer...

Sorry, Shawn. But you still have the lifetime platinum...

Shawn: I know, but I'm still sad about losing my job.

Don't worry. I'm sure you'll get a great new job.

At least the day went well for someone...

Great job, girls.

Uh-oh. Nanny with a match...brace yourselves, everybody.

Well that was anticlimactic.

That's better. It's baby time everyone!


Apple: It's a boy! Meet baby Adam!

Cute nursery. Let me get a shot of him...

He looks just like Idina-medium skin, brown hair, brown eyes. You guys don't have a lot of genetic diversity, do you?

What are you doing, girls?

Rosario: We're studying. It's the weekend and we needed something to do.

Well good for you for being productive.

Happy birthday, dear Adam...

Cute little guy, isn't he?

Apple: That's it, you're doing it...

You keep at it, Apple. I'll be seeing you guys next round...

Shawn: Ugh...I guess it wasn't such a good idea to pet the skunk.

I'll deal with this next round.

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: I guess I was overdue to get the bad result of that chance card, huh? At least Shawn didn't lose his permanent platinum from it.

I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the nanny to set herself on fire. Oh well.

Well I guess they have a male heir now, but Adam is cute. I really like the twins though, and she really is super blonde for a brown hair girl. :)

Love Rent, so obviously I love the naming of this family.
