3.8: Deal

Mama keeps telling me I gotta go to bed, but I know I won’t be able to sleep.

So I’m trying to write this as quick as I can, before she really gets mad and MAKES me go.

I know I really should be sleeping though. Tomorrow’s gonna be a REALLY big day. An exciting one. But a scary one, too.

I’m going away… to SUMMER CAMP!!!!

Jonas Papa told me the big surprise a couple weeks ago. He heard about this really cool summer camp for kids and one of the sessions even has FOOTBALL, my favorite ever!

I told him I DEFINITELY wanted to go, so he signed me up and he’s paying for it and EVERYTHING. He’s the best Papa ever.

03-08-16_9-08-08 PM

But can I tell you a secret?

I told him I definitely, 100%, for-sure wanna go.

But… I’m not really THAT sure.

I’ve never been away from home before. Not for more than one night. I feel like such a baby, but… I’m kinda scared.

I mean, what if the food is really gross? How do I know if I’ll like it? I bet it’s not as yummy as all the stuff vovó always cooks for me.

What will everyone talk about? Tante Gabriela’s jokes are always the best. I don’t think dinnertime will be the same without them…

03-08-16_8-45-40 PM

And what’ll happen at bedtime? I don’t know if I can get to sleep without one of grandpa’s stories…

03-08-16_8-43-56 PM

I bet there won’t be any video games at camp… And no Papa to tell me how to beat the hard levels either…

03-08-16_8-56-30 PM

No Mama playing her pretty music for me in the morning before breakfast.

03-08-16_8-54-57 PM

No Stefan to laugh with me and play funny tricks on everybody.

03-08-16_9-04-24 PM

What if it’s awful? What if no one likes me?

03-08-16_8-38-32 PM

I think I’d feel kind of better if Stefan was going away too, even if we didn’t go to the same place. Knowing he was far away too would kinda make me feel better, y’know? But he’s staying at home. There’s a really cool science camp Papa wanted to sign him up for, but Stefan said no.

I tried to tell him I thought it might be kinda fun for him to go, but he told me it sounded dumb.

03-08-16_9-12-01 PM

But do you wanna know what I think?

I think he doesn’t wanna go just because it was Papa’s idea.

03-08-16_9-11-15 PM

Anyway, I’ve been trying not to freak out or anything about going away. But now that it’s TOMORROW… I kind of am.

Mama keeps telling me to be brave. She says she’s proud of me, and she believes in me.

03-08-16_8-39-08 PM

And she made me promise not to call and ask to come home the first night, no matter how sad or scared I felt. “Give it two nights.” She told me. “And then, if you still want to come home, I’ll come get you, no questions asked. Deal?”

03-08-16_8-40-06 PM

I wanted to be brave, and strong. So I said “Deal”.

03-08-16_8-40-20 PM

I just really hope it all works out okay.

Guess I’ll see tomorrow.

  1. This is so cool! Be brave Tobias! Everyone will love your happy-go-luckness! You’re awesome! Everyone will love you! And I love this updates positivity! I’m grinning from ear to ear now! It’s great! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Hahaha when they are kids, yes! 😛 I have a cc journal/notebook that the teens and adults use, but for some reason my child sims won’t write in them, just their homework! XD

  2. I bet he’ll have the best time and make loads of friends. Stefan got himself into a pickle though, him refusing to go to the science camp means he’ll get to spend more time with Jonas, now without his brother there to divide up Jonas’s attention. Worked out well for him lol!

    1. Hahahaha yeah, Stefan acted kind of rashly hehe 😛 But maybe it won’t be so bad for Stefan at home? Hopefully? XD


  3. I remember when I was a kid and had to go away on camp with the school. I always got homesick the first night, and my Dad always came and got me first thing the next morning. I really wish I could have stayed longer with my friends. I hope it all turns out well for little Tobias and that he doesn’t get homesick like I did. 🙂

    1. I hope so too! 🙂 That’s why Mari made Tobias make that deal with her, about waiting until the second night. It sounds mean, maybe, but I feel like I’d do that to my kid haha force them to be brave and tough it out, because I think once you get over that hurdle of the first night away, you’re having so much fun that you don’t miss home anymore 🙂 (and hopefully that will happen for Tobi!)

  4. I know i really should be commenting on Tobias’s fear but he won’t go to bed because he won’t sleep? I mean come on, you don’t go to bed because you want to play computers games or because you’re hungry not because you can’t sleep. If I followed that logic I’d virtually never be in bed. Tobias need to learn better excuses to put in his journal or he could become normal all of a sudden.

  5. This is good for Tobias. He will gain experience and new friends unlike Stefan. Life is going to be easier for him. Stefan on the other hand… I wonder how hard it will be for him to make friends as a teenager.

    1. Yeah, I think camp will be great for Tobias! (I’ve always wished I’d gone to summer camp IRL). And as for his brother… I think Stefan will find his way eventually… Or at least, I hope he does!

  6. Toby is so adorable. He’s so worried about camp and leaving everyone behind. I was hoping that Stefan would go to camp too. I hope he learns to accept Jonas.

    1. I really hope he does too! 😦 I think he would have fun at camp, if he wasn’t so stubborn. Poor kid. And thank you so much for reading and commenting! I really appreciate it!

    1. Thank you! ^_^ Sorry I wasn’t able to find where you left off! Hopefully you are more successful than me! Haha thanks so much for reading! I appreciate it 🙂


    1. Tobi was so sweet and adorable! ❤ (as I write this comment, he is in his late 50s in the story where I'm writing it. 😦 I miss these young and innocent days!) Thank you for reading!
