Welcome back to the Tart family, where nothing is sacred anymore. This is a big boring one, so grab a snack and a pillow.
We left off at Apple’s elder birthday.
PB missed his wife’s birthday because someone has to take care of Boysenberry.
The masses of starving sims swarm the cake.
Apple is an adorable elder. In fact, I think she looks better as an elder than adult.
Boysenberry’s one action was set to learn to walk since that is what Mooncake wanted.
He eventually got stuck in the playpen. I have no idea if he learned to walk though.
Toddler and one teen spam!
A quick break to meet the other grandkids. Due to how wacky and convoluted the family tree is, it was updated after the last chapter. This catches us up with where I am actually at in game. As of timeline wise for the update, Kenya isn’t born yet.
Picture 1: Jacklyn. Wasabi and Vanilla Dust.
Picture 2: Antony. Wasabi and Vanilla Dust.
Picture 3: Micah. Glacier and Lara
Picture 4: Dmitri. Glacier and Lara.
Picture 5: Trever, Cinnaburst and Calliope.
Picture 6: Kenya. Oleander and Aileen (Lara’s sister).
We then arrive back to the house to find Apple finally getting rid of her woohoo with PB want over with after having it locked for the last 20 years.
Kenya makes his appearance.
Eggplant wakes up starving, but does he go eat? No.
No, Eggplant! Let him starve! Just for a few minutes longer!
Bah. Oh well, at least he is fed now. Hopefully I remember to teach that last sliver of learning to talk.
Eggplant finally eats, but Boysenberry is sort of tired.
Moonie: Stop screaming.
Holy crap! She touched him! Now put him to bed quick!
Moonie: Want to trade, grandma?
Jade: Not on your life.
Apple: Will you put the kid to bed? He is disturbing my sleeping hours.
Moonie does eventually get him to bed, but it was a fight.
Moonie and Nappy sit outside in the snow.
Moonie, who never got to graduate, missed Eggplant’s ceremony. With Boysenberry still asleep, we couldn’t afford a point loss for a babysitter.
Afterward, Eggplant just stood around and Apple sketched.
I hope someone comes home soon, because Moonie wants nothing to do with this situation.
Grandpa and Great-Grandma to the rescue.
PB: Why don’t you leave the dishes to me and go care for your child.
Moonie: How about I do the dishes and you care for my child?
I actually think Jade fed him already.
Eggplant: I’m sure someone will be along someday to change you.
Eggplant was on the verge of starvation, yet again.
A little girl is born! +5
Jade, you know better than to eat spoiled food!
Poor Thistle is finding out just how horrible a family she was born into.
I don’t know who this is.
Apple and Moonie continue to paint in the mornings together.
Pranked by Jade apparently. Ha, now go to work!
Moonie’s lack of interest in her kids is going to drive me nuts.
Moonie: Laundry, stinky.
Luckily Jade and PB arrived home from work within a couple of hours. PB grabbed the boy and Jade grabbed the baby.
Moonie is forced to get that last bit of talking done.
Because we want to do this for some reason.
I figured since she does want him to grow up well, she better get him potty trained.
Beignet called saying we needed a party. I thought it was a bachelorette party, but I had forgotten her and Moonie hated each other. It was a bachelor party for Eggplant.
I have no clue why Cinnaburst showed up in his swimwear, but I like Beignet’s outfit. No, I did not dress her. I wouldn’t force those tights on anyone purposely.
It sucked because I couldn’t control anyone. Glacier, Vanilla Dust and Adrian showed up. They stayed well into the night, but it was pretty lame.
Thistle has her birthday, but I am not happy with her hair color. Sigh.
Moonie: NO! Don’t make me have more! *sobs*
I didn’t want to do fertility treatment, so we will just use this potion.
Someone is tuckered out from the party the night before. Everyone was so busy, they didn’t even notice him. -5
Apple finally got rid of that want for painting! It’s only been there forever.
Moonie was on the ball this time around.
Moonie: I just want to get it over with so I can get back to ignoring them.
There really isn’t much going on. Jade takes care of Boysenberry while Eggplant is downstairs skilling again.
Lifesaver was turning a lovely shade of red. I found the poor thing stuck right here. She was rescued and that section of deck was deleted.
More skilling. Moonie will at least get her LTW done at this rate.
This is our last chance for a decent kid, Moonie. Don’t ruin it.
I do think Thistle taught herself to talk.
Alert: No she didn’t. She did get it done the next day though.
I let this pack of animals out in public long enough for a portrait. I assume it is just out of order since Moonie does not look pregnant here.
I am going to delete that damn stereo.
PB: No, you’re not.
Jade must be bored. She never does anything like this.
Best friends…and she learned to talk.
———–Two Weeks Later———-
I noticed that the pics of Thistle weren’t very good. She grows up cute, but an Apple clone. She is a good genius. Boysenberry did not get an IF, so I think Moonie “donated” hers to him.
Trying max your athletic skill all in one night is good, but only if you plan on surviving the night. Go eat! He went from level 2-6 and is still going.
The house is a horrible pigsty, so reinforcements were called in. Too bad she no longer does children without glitching. PB just put poor Thistle in bed, wide awake and Moonie is asleep. Unfortunately, after two weeks of not playing, her potion for twins or triplets is gone.
Thistle: Will you please tell someone to save me from this metal trap.
I can’t sorry. I’m sure you’re mom will be up in the next five hours. I hope.
I used MC to reset the ownership of the doll. It was only about an hour or two later, that Boysenberry could name it and take over ownership.
Boysenberry: But Gramma, I’m not tired.
I don’t think Moonie is going to be too happy when I wake her up after one starves and the other has a dirty diaper. They both are all skilled up, so the playpen and walker are put away. BUT, it is Boysenberry’s birthday today! Yay.
Actually, the kids got lucky. Moonie was just getting up. One child rescued and one child fed. Oh and look, Moonie is smiling at her!
Moonie: No, she’s heavy. I am grimacing at how heavy she is.
Hey! That’s not for you!
Jade: It is now.
You better finish that fast then.
Moonie: You aren’t going to finish that, are you?
Jade: Of course not.
Another bottle for the kids and Moonie could finally put them to bed…at 4:30 pm.
Dealing with the kids made Moonie late to the consignment shop. Luckily the elixir place takes the paintings and sculptures too.
Of course, that just made us late for birthdays. Kitten 3, now named Jam, went first followed by Boysenberry.
***As I edit this four hours later…Boysenberry Jam…hahaha. They go together perfectly***
He is really cute. We got to pick his trait.
Here is Moonie’s opinion on his birthday.
Moonie: Hello, Dribbledine? Yeah, I got one for ya. ‘k, bye.
Yeah, so this isn’t awkward at all.
This kid is borderline perfect. He took a nap, took a shower and got his own cereal for dinner. And Moonie sends him away.
Eggplant: You massaged the piss outta me.
Jade: I swear, if you mess yourself, be prepared to do your own damn laundry for once.
Moonie: Sorry, grandma, I deleted your stupid sculpture since it was in my way.
Moonie: So. I’m knocked up again.
Eggplant: I potty’d like a big boy.
Such stimulating interactions people.
Which was a perfect segue to marriage according to sims.
Actual pic from my phone asking Siri how to spell seque (or segway depending on its use) then having to give her an example after she gave me the wrong one.
Sigh..now I can’t stop singing Careless Whisper. On a good note, she at least spelled it right for me. Don’t you hate when you know the word you want to use, but draw a complete blank when you go to type it?
They even had their own music playing while they did it.
Of course, I prefer this to screaming. but maybe not for a wedding. I think most people, if having a choice, would choose screaming over a song about a cheater….oddly enough, when I was 9 (when the song came out), it was my favorite.
Thistle: IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME YOU ANIMALS!
I told you he was perfect. By the time Thistle was done with her bottle, Boysenberry crawled into bed. WITHOUT a bedtime story.
That all goes to crap when Thistle starts screaming about her dirty diaper.
He wants to yell at her so bad, but he must make his bed first.
*dies of shock* The only thing these animals make is a mess.
Thanks, PB. It’s 7am and you put her to bed.
At least Moonie will be able to get her in a second when she completes this and then she will be asleep for the day while I watch the zoo in action.
So, instead of dealing with kids, I instead teleported her big ass to the fairy thing. She walked in was in there for a bit and came out in labor. I am not sure if it helped though.
Boysenberry: Hey, driver, are we related? We got the same eyes.
Lots going on while Moonie is in labor. A new niece was born and Apple actually accomplishes something.
It’s a room full of addicts. Jade and the bar, PB is about to dance the night away, and Eggplant and his damn exercising. In fact, he never joins Moonie at the hospital.
Unnamed..it’s a girl with no name. I’m just not feeling the names this generation.
Unnamed #2 is a boy, obviously. Moonie just dumped them in the entryway on the floor. At least she stayed around long enough to feed one. +10
Bite your tongue old woman!
Poor baby was left in her crib all day and just fell asleep hungry. Moonie heads up to wake her and feed her.
Aww, Lifesaver is an elder now. I had Berry age up too so they could be the same age.
I was definitely not going to be dealing with a toddler and two babies.
We interrupt the birthday proceedings for an announcement from our resident DUMBSHIT!
First disbelief and then some foot stamping, but that was about it.
Jade: I’m surround by filth and idiots.
You’re just now figuring that out? You’re like a million years old.
Thistle: No lefty, don’t do it! Somebody save me!
Thistle: Righty saved the day!
Back on track again, we finally get a look at Thistle after her birthday and war with her own hand.
Moonie strikes again and so we will say goodbye to Thistle shortly.
I want to save my score much humiliation, so we will end it here. Next time, this scene above leads to about 500 fails in two day, a threat from the social worker and I got within 10 seconds of murdering everyone in the house
Birth (2): +10
Twins (1): +10
