Rolling right along, last time Victoria and the kids stayed up late to watch the New Year. The next day, the triplets had all gained a skill level, which completed their resolutions. Victoria still needs to get another promotion and Belladonna needs to get a better grade in school.
Belladonna has convinced Ti-Ning to hang out. They build a snowpal together.
Lucille is still tired and smelly from the previous chapter. Also, her hair keeps changing color and it’s annoying.
Omar was found just sitting on a couch staring out at the snow.
Omar: Will the snow ever go away? It’s spring already.
Victoria finally writes a non-fiction book for the family.
Ti: This is pretty tasty.
Watch out, Ti. Those are music to the ears of the spouse picker.
Ti: Man, this is disgusting.
Bella gains a level and now she thinks it’s fun to workout.
Sleep and a bath restores Lucille to her happy self.
Then she gets back to the job at hand.
The sounds coming from these two are earsplitting.
Caleb is out haunting. Bella and him were seen chatting about nothing in particular.
It’s a rush to get volunteering. The sun is coming up and Belladonna needs to be indoors before that happens.
It was rebate day, so they bought a new computer, the one Bella is using to research vampires. Victoria and Omar are dancing and Oscar and Lucille are doing their music thing again.
Belladonna reads her first tome.
Bella tops her career while the kids are doing homework/school projects. Three kids now have their responsibility in range.
Victoria goes into labor. I did not check with MCCC. I have no clue what she is having or how many. I think that goes will with our little Bad Apple.
I put out all three cribs just in case, but we only got one baby. Our Bad Apple is little Petunia.
And omg. The super efficient baby thing is amazing.
Victoria: Do. Not. Want.
Me neither, but tough shit.
Hours and hours of projects finally pay off. The kids all feed, pee, and go to bed.
Then do their homework/extra credit when they wake up in the middle of the night.
Aww, Lydia’s first haunting.
She keeps passing out in her death spot. It’s really creepy.
Lucille: I can’t wait to never sing again. lalala
Oscar: My fingers are going to fall off. Help!
Oh dear God. The snow melted and this is what I found.
After the clean up, Petunia’s flamingos are added.
She’s really getting nowhere fast. I swear she went to level 2 and just stopped learning.
I don’t know his name and now the point is moot.
Victoria encouraging Lucille to keep learning skills after a marathon singing session.
You have to visit the clubhouse 5 times a generation. This is number three and the first for all the kids.
Victoria trains the new dog and maxes the training skill at 5. Belladonna is at the bar making drinks.
The kids are still working on their creativity, while Omar is super far behind them. He was working the mental/motor skills on the computer.
Victoria finishes the book. It now sits on a table somewhere.
Ti invited Omar over and it was boring. He went home before the salad was done.
She’s sooo cute and got a new hair color. What a nice change. I am using the mod, so I did not choose her trait. I only know what it is because I saw it in CAS for her makeover. I will not be sharing that information until adulthood.
One Bad Apple
Every generation one of your children will just plain be a bad apple. You get to choose which child it is at birth. Once chosen you cannot change it. A bad apple cannot be controlled until adulthood. You can not select your bad apple until they are a teen. You may not view their needs or skills, you may not view anything that you cannot already see with all of the interface fully collapsed. As a child and teen you cannot control them at all. Having the Bad Apple be taken by a social worker or die before reaching adulthood causes you to lose this mini-challenge. You may purchase aspiration rewards that your Bad Apple has rightfully earned. Bonus bonus points if your bad apple earns negative character traits!
Since we won’t know what she needs when she needs it, the best thing to do is make sure she can go potty on her own when she needs it. All toddler toys are now back out and so is the toddler jungle gym downstairs.
Lucille finally maxes her creativity skill. She only needs one more skill maxed, a best friend, and two good friends.
Oscar has one skill maxed, creativity is a close second. Then he also needs to do the friend thing.
Lucille’s next closest skill is probably under level 5, mental.
Omar. I don’t think Omar does anything. If anyone is going to cause me to fail this challenge, it’s this gloomy ass dude.
Bella be all trying to look like a badass on her workout. Then we realize that in a week, she’s still level 2.
Petunia: I go potty!
She is so cute. Now if only someone would realize she was needing another moment on the pot.
I’m going to end it here so that I can get the heir poll started.
Some rule changes have happened this morning. I’m not sure if they are set in stone yet, but I hope to get the C&D one started.
Cats & Dogs
Create a dog with your founder, and each heir must have their own pet as a companion (either by breeding the original pet or by adopting a new pet), and do the following:
-Teach all commands (only dogs can be trained – cats can be owned, but only dogs count for the bonus) (3 Points)
-Train out all behaviors. (3 Points) Max the Pet Training and Vet Skill
-Run a vet clinic (the vet clinic must be established by the founder and owned through the entire challenge). (3 Points)
The Golden Trio (10 Points)
A generation of your choice must give birth to triplets. You may name each of the babies after a different letter in the naming scheme if you go for this, you are also exempt from the three pregnancy rule that generation. Additional trio rules apply. You must have each triplet max three skills of your choosing as a child,
make three best friends they each need one best friend and two good friends (outside of the family), and complete the golden trio of getting an A in elementary and high school and reaching the top of their teen career as a teen. They must also each earn at least three positive character value if you have Parenthood installed. Trio = three. And no negative values. Additional children may be born after the triplets, the trio rules do not apply to them.
