This is the fourth and final starting family in my prosperity challenge. Meet Michelle Chen, a pleasure sim, and her husband Nathan, a fortune sim.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my families as much as I enjoyed playing them. I'll be back with round two shortly.

The Chens move into a beautiful new home in Birch St, Lakeside Village.
The pair may be naturally shy, but the one exception to this is their many spontaneous public displays of affection, in private, or when visiting the neighbours. They have already amused their friends and neighbours, the Karakos family, with it. Nathan wants to start a family right away. Michelle is all about christening the bedroom, so is happy to oblige.
Unfortunately there's no welcome wagon for the couple. Instead they are greeted by a huge strike of lightning. Nathan buys some moderately nice furniture, and some paintings to decorate the house with. The money has to come from somewhere though! Nathan gets a career in Intelligence, and Michelle gets a career in Music. Hoping to pick up a bit of extra cash, he paints a beautiful picture, which sells for the princely sum of $5! Maybe when he gets a bit more practice...
Meanwhile, Michelle indulges herself by pouring over recipe books, and cooks up a storm. Yummy hamburgers!
Michelle's not having a good day. She got demoted at work for selling a badly reviewed album, and she has dreadful morning sickness... in the afternoon.
Michelle invites Rosalie Karakos over for a sports party to cheer herself up. They break out the juice barrel and cheer their favourite teams on.
Nathan is doing well at work, but arrives home to clean up the mess which Michelle always leaves. She's such a grot.
Michelle is on maternity leave. She starts out conscientiously reading up on her parenting skills, and encourages her husband to do the same. Pregnancy takes its toll however, and she needs to spend much of her time napping. There's not much opportunity to go out and have fun like she wants. She consoles herself by spending Nathan's work bonuses on a few electronic and non-electronic games. Nathan has fun decorating the nursery. Soon the big day arrives.
The Chens welcome a bouncing baby girl, Erin, into the world. It's difficult to leave such a new baby, so the new parents take some time out for a date at home. A quick check up on the baby before the run to the bedroom, and they're right for plenty of adult time. Michelle loves playing with her daughter. As luck would have it, one of the rare times she peeks throught the telescope, Michelle finds a new star! The SimCity Astronomy Club give her a handsome reward for her efforts. Michelle is still on maternity leave, and Nathan has the day off. They go shopping, and Nathan buys his wife a beautiful diamond ring. Knowing that Erin is safe at home with the nanny, the couple spend a relaxing day at the park. Nathan even finds a couple of treasures in the sand. They aren't very good yet, but ice-skating is a lot of fun.
It's well into autumn, but feeling particularly hardy, they go swimming in the lake. Yes, Nathan is doing well in his current career, and they have a newborn to support, but having a baby makes the Chens re-evaluate what they want to do with their lives. Nathan loves all things beachy, and wants to work in the Oceanography career, and Michelle wants to use her cooking skills for a living. It means going back to entry level jobs, but the pair find new jobs in ther dream fields.

Author's Note: Meaning, it took me this long to actually check what their lifetime wants are. Duh!
Michelle is a bit of a sports nut, and Nathan wants to get fit for his job, so the enjoy kicking a football around the back yard. Erin grows up so quickly! Her parents bake her a beautiful cake for her birthday, and cheer her on as she grows up. With two devoted parents, a nanny to do the grunt work, and a lot of smart toddler milk, Erin quickly learns her toddler skills. Her favourite activity is playing with her wabbit toy.
The early mornings are a real drag, and the uniform outrageous, but Nathan is pleased to be starting his new job as a Fish Chummer.
