Chapter 1.2 | Chapter 1.4
So.. last time, we got the family off to a good start with two toddlers. This time – hopefully we get at least one of those toddlers grown up – The one that’s stinky in the above pic… Cyan. Also, I apologize for lack of pics .. they were being pretty boring this week.
His sister, Oceana, is not due to age up for a while, and definitely not during the week. She’s also decided to become a sand castle architect. Only she’s not very good at it yet.
She is so darn cute, though. She’s already my favorite of the two, so her sitting on this little poof so adorably isn’t hurting her case for heir at all.
It occurs to me that this particular placement of the slide is.. well.. dangerous is the word I think I’d use. I move it.
This was completely autonomous, and so cute. I love these kiddie pools.
Amaranthe is working on her charisma for a promotion in the painting career.. Hawea is desperately trying to stop the flood of water from the broken shower. It doesn’t seem to be working.
Proof that I remembered to put in a second toddler bed, since we clearly needed one.
Cyan and his sister having a chat. Both parents were busy, so they had time to occupy themselves.
Amaranthe picks up the “emotional bomb” quirk from fame and failing to get pregnant for the FOURTH time in a row.
I quickly get rid of that quirk. Yuck.
And the very next try – success. And yes, Hawea did forget to pick up his parts after repairing the shower.
However, he had to go to the library to research on their computers for his job.. so he had priorities. I’ve had him working from home all week, since the toddlers always need attention.
It’s apparently Love Day – so I have Amaranthe meet him at the bar on the way home for a date. Legendary, too.
He comes home and is clearly over the whole potty training thing. Can’t say as I blame him. But at least Cyan is done with potty training, now.
Just in time, too!!
Happy Birthday, Cyan! (I don’t know why Amaranthe doesn’t look pregnant yet – she is..)
He rolled Vegetarian. Oh, no. I almost immediately forget and have him eat meat. two meals in a row. I have a feeling these will not be the only meals I forget, unless I can remember to have Mom cook only vegetarian food from now on.
Aw, he’s a cutie. But that Vegetarian trait – almost disqualifies him from being an heir in my book. We’ll see what his sister gets.
Calling off for Family Leave in her third trimester. Which means I’m waiting to save and post this until after the baby arrives.
I’ve discovered this raises parenting skill quite nicely, so Oceana has been able to swim quite a bit. Also: note all the bottles on the floor behind the pool.
I don’t know why, but random villagers keep showing up and making the anti-stress serum from Outdoor Retreat Herbalism. They have not been invited over, nor are they giving the serums to us. They’re still marked as being owned. Very weird. Never had that happen before. I can use them, though.. so I guess we’ll start using them.
Oceana, leaving her mark on the end of the week. She’s now at Happy Toddler levels, and has three days still til her Birthday. And she did most of it on her own. Who knows, she might even get Top Notch Toddler!
And.. the reason I was waiting. Meet Teal, the new little boy in the family. I manage to get him born after an annoying hospital glitch that left Amaranthe stuck for hours. Sending her “home” triggered another hospital popup.. so I sent her alone that time, since joining her most definitely didn’t work. We’ll have to wait until next time to see what little Teal looks like, though, because I’m already past the end of their sim-week. See you next time!
