how did that happen?

i was trying to come up with a good way to introduce the blogging world to the new adventure i’ve set out on in second life, but its just for some reason really hard to explain i guess lol.

only in second life can an adoption consist of two people saying “ok you’re mine now :p” and it be binding.

last week lucas and i added a couple of new members to our family. it wasn’t planned and i’m still not sure if it was a good idea (just kidding kids) but we did it and i’m really happy to have them in our life.

family

so second life, these are my kids. caesey and elijah. one is 6 1/4 and one is 13 going on 21 :p both of them are completely and utterly awesome and i feel very proud to call them my kids.

to some, second life families are weird, but i’ve never felt that way. i think here in this world where we can be anything, we should be allowed to be ANYTHING. and if you wanna be a kid well be one! i think its awesome. so far i’ve gotten to tour an elementary school (hke), attend my daughter’s dj sets (she rocks), run though the kids 50L fridays (they have one too! and its great!) and go to some pretty interesting places.

on top of that i feel peaceful! yes that’s right this has been RELAXING! yeah i know real motherhood would probably be hell on wheels compared to this but this has been wonderful. always someone to hang out with and talk to and everything is so happy and light. i’m really a big kid myself so i have always gotten along with children. i’ve just always thought i would be a crappy mom. and yeah i dunno if i’m being a good mom to them or not (only had them about a week or so.. so not sure)

i do know that i am one of those annoying moms who takes 283497294 photos and makes their kids pose on every friggin poseball in the family section of glitterati.

of course there is the down side which is stupid and annoying.. you can’t take kids to formal ballrooms without the embarrassment of having them kicked out even if they are dressed formally and the club is not an adult establishment (its not like they were having sex there.. they were playing jazz..sheesh.) so we’ve had a little trouble finding things to do with the kids that don’t involve standing in the skybox looking for things to do. what they really need is a family friendly website where people can list this stuff because its so buried under the mountains of FREE SEX!!! and business in a box shops that you can’t find anything worth going to.

ok i’m done ranting. in closing this family thing is really fun. i’m enjoying it a lot 🙂 no i’m not going to lose my evil side being a mom. my kids are devils.. don’t let the cuteness fool you. the first time i met caesey she was floating around our old shop last year wearing love kills (that’s the heart balloon with a noose), and my son likes to tell people we’re rock stars… so they are just like their mommy and daddy. and its slightly inspired me to make creepy stuff that kids can wear as well as adults.

  1. First of all congrats nimil and lucas with your new family:-) I guess kids for me in SL wouldn’t work, i have 2 teenagers in RL and that is about enough i can take LOL. However, i see it more and more, SL couples who have a baby or a couple of kids and the first question that pops into my head when i see them is: Where to they get them? Is it SL/RL friends who play the kids? Are they for sale? I happen to know for a fact you can buy babies in SL;-) Or you just bump into kids by accident?
    I have a lot more questions about this kids stuff, but i better not fill your blog with a monster comment:-)
    Again congrats you two and have fun with the kids;-)

  2. bah you can ask me questions if you wanna lionesse 😀

    we met cae about a year ago during the vain halloween ghost hunt. she came to our store to get the prize :p she’s been a friend of ours since and about a week ago invited lucas and i to go to one of her dj gigs. we went and ended up hanging out with her the rest of the night where she told us that her old parents that she had at the time we’d met her were gone and she was an orphan 😦 so we snatched her up and eli was her brother so we got him too 😀

    there are adoption centers in sl for people who are looking for kids, but this was much better since we already knew cae 🙂
