Welcome back to the Ritchie’s trip through Switch Three. The twins are now toddlers, so as soon as Dad gets home they’re moving.
Mommy’s busy.. so the kids go “wandering”….
…turns out toddlers can use elevators! Where exactly are you two going?
They finally wander back home after having gotten into no trouble except for terrifying me by wandering out of the apartment…. and dad gets home so it’s time to move. Cue apartment spam:
… Not too bad. We spent more time here than I planned, but both kids are safe.
.. And we’re almost to level 8 of the career. Here’s what I was able to afford in the next apartment:
Yep… I was even able to fully build and paint and everything. But now it’s way past time for the babies.
So we put them to bed the cutest way possible.
A cute shot of mom getting some sleep while Dad plays with Tricia. And yep.. I know them by the color of their outfits.
Mom’s birthday. She’s now an adult…. just in time to move again. I had so much saved from waiting for the kids to grow into toddlers that I only had a little more to save. Cue apartment spam.
I really like the way this one turned out.
She’s at job level nine…. so close, and yet still so far.
I saved up what I thought was a nice nest egg…. since the next apartment is so expensive…. and I was greeted by this horrifying sight:
After building floors and the outside wall (which gets changed before long).. and buying the very little I’m able to afford:
I can’t even afford stairs. It’s sad. So they’re lawn living. I figure I’ll add the stairs after the kids.. are.. well, kids. So they don’t have to climb stairs while they’re toddlers. And I have time to save up.
The twins are way too cute at this stage.
I then send Dad to get his museum art viewed. It takes a few moments… and he’s right back home to care for toddlers.
Birthdays. The important one, the heir.
She grew up way cute!
And yes, Tricia is trying to sing in the background of this shot. It was pretty bad, I assure you.
Why do I like the looks of Brenna more than Tricia? .. Hopefully they grow up good to teen.
Now that they’re kids, I go into build mode and try to partition out the house. After several false starts, this is what I came up with. The floors aren’t done, but the walls are.
Checking the value..
… Yikes. I have a long way to go.
The twins are best friends now! Now, cue social butterfly for Tricia spam:
Tada! Now we can get back to the business of living.
Creativity is next.. for both of them. (Actually, it’s first for Brenna, but let’s not quibble facts)
(Brenna is the one on the violin)
And she finishes! Her sister has to play catch-up now.
Mom’s busy writing.. gotta make money to finish the house. (Although I think, once again, I go overboard on the money making.)
Aren’t they cute?
Creative time in the downstairs studio (yes, I decided to not reprise the pool that is there on normal mode)
And the kitchen/dining area is finished. I had to take shots of it because I like it so much.
And.. because I forgot the night lights.. Tricia decides to make friends with the monster. Silly girl.
Well, we’ll see you next time.. when the girls turn into teens and we finish the house. Hopefully.
