The Cooke Legacy: Chapter Twenty Five – Dreams Do Come True
A joint legacy between ilovereecee & meadowthayer
Thanks for coming back to read the twenty fifth chapter of The Cooke Legacy! Last chapter you saw the heir Jackson take Lisa as his wife. Together they had six children, but they aren’t done yet! Kenadie, Kingsley, Kellan, Kyla, Kolton and baby Kimi are to be joined by four more siblings before Lisa and Jackson are finished having kids. I hope you enjoy this chapter and Jackson will take over the narration from here.
It’s time for my youngest children to age! Kolton is going to be a child and my baby girl Kimi is going to be a big girl as a toddler! Lisa and I can’t believe our kids are growing up so quickly. It seems like yesterday that Kimi was born and now she’s going to be walking and talking. And my son Kolton is going to be going to school!
Kolton grew up and looks a lot like his mother! He is the only child I have that shares my black hair. So I feel he has a good mix of both Lisa and me.
Kimi, my little darling, looks much like her older sisters Kenadie and Kyla. They all have big brown eyes and bright red hair. I’m happy that so many of my children have the hair color of my father. I miss him a lot since he passed and I’m glad to see that his genes are still being passed on in my children.
Lisa is pregnant with our seventh child! She’s been wanting ten ever since we had our third baby Kellan. At first I wasn’t too keen on the idea, but we have six already and four more doesn’t seem all too daunting. I’m ready to be the father of ten. Being surrounded by all the love is wonderful!
Sassy, the family’s new and interesting looking dog, is still learning her skills. Kingsley adopted her after my parents Ishmael and Vicki passed and so she’s very new to the home. Kenadie spends a lot of time trying to house train her and get her ready for the work field.
I have achieve two lifetime wants in my life already - become a general and reach the top of the medical career. I gave up working at an early age to raise my children so Lisa could complete her first lifetime want (become a captain hero). I miss being the bread winner in the home, but by being a stay at home daddy I get to bond with all of my children. I wouldn’t go back to work for all the money in the world!
Near the end of Lisa’s maternity leave, she went into labor with our seventh child! Kenadie, Kingsley and Kellan were just getting off the school bus and got to the living room in time to see their new sister and brother being born! Our second set of twins are fraternal red heads with brown eyes. My daughter is Katrina and my new son is called Keegan.
Kenadie began dating as soon as she turned into a teenager. She is a wonderful daughter and sister to all of her siblings. She still needs to be a teen though. Every now and then she’ll bring a guy home for us to meet. They never stay very long – she hasn’t gotten serious about anyone yet.
Lisa and I are used to having the help of my parents to care for all of our children. Now it’s just us two to take care of everyone! Thankfully we have the help of our teenagers, but feeding, bathing, changing and making sure eight kids get their homework done is a huge task! Lisa and I make a great team though; and we always make sure everyone is happy before bedtime.
Lisa is pregnant again! This will be our ninth child – people probably think we’ve lost our minds! I’m ready to be done having children; not because I don’t want anymore. But because I want Lisa to achieve her lifetime want. She can’t advance in her career if she’s on maternity leave all the time.
Kenadie, Kingsley and Kellan are all enrolled in private school. Kyla and Kolton, my children, attend public school. The private school has a new headmaster, so we invited him over for dinner and a tour of our home in order to get my two youngest school aged kids into a better environment. I’m happy to say that the new headmaster was impressed with the family and home and accepted Kyla and Kolton.
After the headmaster left, we broke out the balloons and birthday cakes! Four birthdays in one night – my babies Katrina and Keegan are aging into toddlers.
Kimi is going to be a child and I am even celebrating a big day as well. It’s time for me to age into an elder. I must say, I’ve been more than pleased with my adult hood.
I’m happy to say that I didn’t go gray like most elders do. My hair is still jet black, but I do have some wrinkles now. Kimi aged perfectly – my precious girl looks more like her older sisters every day.
Katrina and Keegan have entered their terrible twos! I guess I shouldn’t say that – I’ve yet to have any bad times with any of my children during their toddler years. Both of the twins aged wonderfully and are adorable, of course!
Lisa and I haven’t had a set of twins since Kenadie and Kingsley – our first born children – so I took full advantage of my wife’s maternity leave to help care for our new twins. Katrina and Keegan are smart toddlers; of course smart milk helps them learn to walk and talk much faster! The were right on track with each other and learned their skills at the same time! They even said the same first word at the very same time. That was funny, but kind of freaky!
I have eight children right now, so it seems like there is a birthday every night in the house. This time my fourth child Kyla is aging into a teenager! She’s going to be joining her big sister Kenadie and brothers Kingsley and Kellan in the world of dating, pimples and all else that comes along with being a teen!
Kyla is a beautiful young woman! She’s come a long way since her older sister Kenadie dressed her in a Raggedy Anne costume as a toddler! Kyla decided on a popularity/pleasure aspiration combo. That’s a little worrying, but I know she’ll turn out to be a fine woman!
I’m proud to introduce you to my newest and ninth child! Lisa went into labor on the night of Kyla’s teenage birthday. We now have another beautiful red headed daughter with brown eyes. I still think it’s amazing that all of my daughters share the same eye and hair color. Our newest baby is named Kiara.
Kenadie has always brought home some very nice looking young men. It wasn’t until her third date with Phoenix that I really got worried about her choice in men. He was wearing a cape and had on more make up than my daughter. I hope she isn’t going through a weird phase in her dating life.
I’m very happy to tell you that my wife has finally achieved her first lifetime want! She’s now the captain hero of Desiderata Valley! I couldn’t be prouder of my beautiful Lisa than right now. She’s defeated climbing the career ladder all while taking care of our nine wonderful children. Her new lifetime want is to have six grandchildren. Even if only half of our kids have just one child that lifetime want will come true. Lisa’s second lifetime want should be a walk in the park!
The night that Lisa became a perma-plat adult, Katrina and Keegan had a birthday! They’re leaving their toddler days behind them and are turning into children. They’ll be joining their older brothers and sisters in school. I don’t know where the time has gone!
Katrina and Keegan look very similar! The only difference in the two is that Katrina has a darker complexion. Keegan got his mother’s fair skin tone.
I’m very proud of my twins and I hope that they are just as successful in school as their older siblings have been thus far. I know they will do great at whatever they put their minds to.
Lisa is pregnant for the very last time! We found out the night after the twins aged into children that our tenth child is on his or her way! Time has really flown – I can remember finding out for the first time that Lisa and I were going to be parents when she was pregnant with Kenadie and Kingsley.
Lisa and I aren’t the only ones expecting! Sassy and Dash are pregnant as well. The Cooke family is expecting a new puppy as well as a new baby!
Kenadie and Kingsley are getting very close to their adult birthdays. I’ve talked them into looking for jobs that are close to their lifetime wants. Kingsley wants to reach the top of the athletic career. He was lucky enough to find a job as a locker room attendant. It’s pretty low on the ladder, but you have to start somewhere.
Kolton, Kimi, Katrina and Keegan are all my young children. They spend a lot of time studying for their college scholarships. Their older siblings have already maxed out their skills and set a good example. I hope all of my younger kids can follow suit!
Another night, another birthday! In this case, two birthdays! Kolton and Kiara are blowing out the candles and taking on the next life stage! Kolton is going to be a teenager and baby Kiara is going to age into a toddler!
Kolton aged into a well rounded young man. He decided on a popularity/fortune aspiration combo. He’s got a strong jaw line and an odd mix of Lisa and mine’s noses. None of my kids have a nose like Kolton. He’s the oddball in the family – he’s the only one with a different nose and black hair!
Kiara aged into such a beautiful child. She’s got the most hair I’ve ever seen on a toddler. She is adorable and a sweetheart too. I can’t wait to watch her take her first steps and start talking!
The new puppy is here! Sassy and Dash are now the proud parents of a brand new little girl. We named the new ball of energy Tess. Right now she’s a small, plain white puppy. Dash and Chumpy were the same color when they were born though – so I guess we’ll have to wait and see how Tess turns out as an adult dog.
Lisa woke up in the middle of the night with pains and couldn’t sleep anymore. She was on her way to the bathroom to soak in the tub when she went into labor!
Kenadie was a sleep in her bed, but woke up just in time to see her last little brother being born! Kaden is the last addition to Lisa and mine’s large family. He has blonde hair and brown eyes.
Kellan is becoming quite the responsible young adult. I’m very hopeful that all of my children should turn out this way. He loves spending time with his younger siblings. He’s starting to feel more comfortable around babies and toddlers and helps teach Kiara how to use her toys correctly.
Kenadie and Kingsley are no longer children. As a matter of fact, they are no longer teenagers! My first born babies are aging into adults. I hope that Lisa and I have instilled the right morals into them both and I just know they will have wonderful lives as adults.
I can’t believe I’m old enough to have two children in their twenties! I just had a baby for crying out loud! Seeing how much Kenadie and Kingsley have grown in the past twenty years makes me feel really old. I’m proud of my kids – no matter how old they make me feel though! Kingsley has held a job in the athletic career for a while now and was given a great promotion to MVP once he aged into an adult. Kenadie doesn’t have a job (her lifetime want is to marry off six children), but she plans to find something fun soon.
I still think it’s strange that I have children old enough to have their own children when Lisa and I still have a newborn baby boy. Kaden is such a sweet, loving child. Lisa has been talking about retiring soon from her position as captain hero. I think she wants to spend more time with our youngest ones. I can’t blame her - I know I will go to sleep one night and wake up what seems like the next morning and Kaden will be a teenager. Time really flies!
Kenadie and Kingsley decided it was time to leave the nest! I was sad to see my oldest children leave the home I raised them in, but I know it must happen sometime. They got a little two bedroom house together not far from me, Lisa and their siblings. Looks like they’re off to start their own lives now!
I thought things would be quieter in the house once two of my kids left, but I was wrong. Kellan, Kyla and Kolton are teenagers through and through. They have friends over all the time and spend a lot of time laughing on the bubble blower. I was the complete opposite as a teenager and throughout my young adulthood, but looks like my kids are turning into quite the party people. I wouldn’t let it go too far though – they definitely still have to help with chores and with their younger siblings.
It’s time for more birthdays! Every time I turn around it seems like Lisa is asking me to buy some more candles for the cakes and blow up birthday balloons. I guess when you have ten kids birthdays are a normal though though. Tonight Kimi is aging into a teenager, Kiara a child and little Kaden a toddler!
Kimi aged into a beautiful young lady! She looks so much like her mother, but with red hair instead of blonde. She decided on a fortune/pleasure aspiration combo. I’m happy that she chose fortune for her primary – it is the same as mine! I hope Kimi will be just as successful and wealthy as me one day.
Kiara aged into a sweet, chubby cheeked little girl. She resembles her older sisters in looks and personality.
Baby Kaden grew to be such a handsome little guy! He looks like Kolton did when he was a toddler. Except Kaden has Lisa’s blonde hair of course! I’m proud of how all three of my children aged tonight!
Kenadie and Kingsley missed their younger siblings’ birthday party. They called apologizing, but said things have been busy at their new home. They’re still getting settled in.
Kingsley is working as an MVP still. He is starting to learn his way around. He got quite the promotion once he aged into an adult and it’s a lot of new responsibility! Kenadie hasn’t been worried about finding work, but pays her part of the mortgage by selling paintings.
Back in the main house with Lisa, me and the kids, Sassy has given birth to her second pup! She and Chumpy have a new long haired green baby boy together! Lisa named him Green Goblin because of his fur color, but we call him Goblin for short.
My fifth child Kolton is ready to move on. He’s been a teenager for some time now and he is finally at the point in his life where he wants to leave home and start his own journey in college! I hugged my son goodbye, I’m proud that he’s decided to further his education. I hope many more of my children follow suit.
Tess has aged into a fully grown adult dog! She has short hair and a few spots from her mom, but her coat color and markings are all from Dash. I’m happy that Tess has aged – having her and Goblin in the house was almost like having newborns again!
It’s time for some more birthdays! Tonight we have a total of five family members moving onto the next life stage! First up is my lovely wife Lisa and my third child Kellan. They blew out their candles together and spun into . . .
The next parts of their lives! Lisa looks amazing – she has since the day I set eyes on her in my college anatomy and physiology class! I’m lucky to have married such a sweet, kind and lovely woman.
My son Kellan aged into a handsome man! He has a strong jaw – I’m not sure where that came from! Lisa and I both have quite small jaws.
Up next is Katrina, Keegan and Kaden! They are all aging tonight as well. Kaden is waving goodbye to his toddler days – it’s a bit sad because he is Lisa and I’s last child. We won’t get to enjoy any more toddlers until we turn into grandparents.
Katrina aged into a beautiful young lady! I give total credit to Lisa for my daughters looks. Katrina decided on a popularity/grilled cheese aspiration combo.
Katrina’s younger twin brother Keegan also aged wonderfully! He shares the same facial structure as his older sisters! Keegan chose family/popularity as his aspirations to follow.
And last, but not least, little Kaden is no longer a little boy! He’s growing into a strong man like his big brothers before him. I couldn’t be a happier father or husband – I’m so proud of how everyone aged so wonderfully tonight!
Kellan has started working towards his lifetime want! I’m so proud of my son. He wants to become a celebrity chef and has started out as a prep cook. On his first day at work, he came home with a promotion to Sous Chef and a nice big bonus! Looks like Kellan won’t have any trouble reaching his lifetime want.
Goblin has aged into an adult dog! No more puppies in the house for us. Goblin lost his all green coat and is a good mix of both his parents, Chumpy and Sassy.
I’m happy to say that the twins Katrina and Keegan are proving to be very responsible young adults. They both get along with everyone in the family and don’t mind pitching in with the chores around the house. They’re both great role models for their younger siblings Kiara and Kaden.
Kellan is also a wonderful role model for all of his younger siblings! Even though he has already maxed out his skills, he is studying fire safety to expand his knowledge for his career. Kaden and he study together and use this time to bond.
Now that our kids are no longer so dependent on Lisa and me, I have a lot more free time. I gave up my job once I reached my lifetime want years and years ago. I did this to help raise our kids. Now that they’re all almost grown, I spend more time taking care of the dogs - bathing them and teaching them their needed skills for their careers.
Dash has aged into an elder dog. His dark fur color has been replaced with a lot of gray and he’s getting slower and fatter now. Kellan has decided it’s time for him to settle down into his own place. To help us out, Kellan offered to take Dash with him. That way Dash will get more attention and care in his old age.
Kellan missed his younger sister’s birthday. He moved out the same day that Kiara was due to turn into a teenager. And what a wonderful teenager she turned out to be! Kiara aged into a beautiful young lady, just as all of her sisters have before her. She decided on a popularity/family aspiration combo.
Kellan also missed the party the following night when Kyla aged into an adult! He was still getting settled into his new two bedroom home a few blocks away and couldn’t make it.
Kyla aged into a lovely woman none-the-less. She looks very much like her mother. I’m so happy that I have such beautiful children.
Kyla has the lifetime want to go on fifty first dates! So she’s diving right into that very big task by dating as many men in one day as she possibly can. She goes on about five dates a day and it’s literally a hello-goodbye affair. As soon as she greets the poor man, she bids him farewell and its onto the next one.
Thirty years of marriage and ten wonderful, smart and intelligent children later Lisa and I are still going strong! I feel just as in love with her as the day I met her in anatomy class all those long years ago. Apparently our love for each other is too much for young Keegan to comprehend! He things Lisa and I are crazy for still showing our love very openly around the house at such old ages.
Lisa and I both very much want the rest of our children to be accepted into private school. Our oldest four had such a wonderful experience in private school that we want the other six to have the same thing. We have some experience in entertaining headmasters and so our school aged children were all accepted easily!
The next day Kyla went on five more dates – making her total ten out of fifty! She’s 1/5 th of the way to completing her lifetime want – and she got Thomas Gilscarbo, the headmaster we entertained last night. That was a little weird!
It’s time for the last birthday in this update! My youngest son Kaden is aging into a teenager. I can’t believe time has really flown this much. I’m happy that he is aging, but I’m sad that my days raising children are behind me. I can only hope that my ten kids give Lisa and me lots of grandkids!
Kaden aged wonderfully and decided on a knowledge/grilled cheese aspiration combo.
And that will end this chapter! Lisa and I have had thirty wonderful years of marriage together. My time as heir is over now and it’s time for you to decide which of our ten kids will carry on this family’s legacy. You have a tough choice – all ten of my kids would be exceptional heirs. But, only one can be chosen. Lisa and I put the choice in your hands, readers. Thank you for coming to see more of my family. Go vote, and we’ll see you all next time when one of my children takes reign over the family.
