Welcome back to the journey from Child to Teen. Annette starts off with zombie cake.
Nicholas is just miserable, but at least his hair is fixed, right?
I think I like Annette’s alien form better, but only because Nicholas has weird eyes.
And more cake for Annette. She has changed into her jammies, so it must be a new day.
Yep. Signing up for scouts together.
Getting homework done while dad sleeps.
Annette: It’s not fair that I had to go to school, but Nicholas had to stay home!
Apparently, he blew his candles out right before midnight, but his spin took place after it. He had 24 hours to wait for school.
It was also Monday, which means school project. Too bad a thunderstorm popped up right at the end. She’s miserable, but happy to be done finally.
This is not good. She is Outgoing, so her social depletes super fast. The rest is the bi-product of school project and homework immediately after a bad day at school.
Scarlet offers to tuck her into bed.
But she doesn’t want one. She wanted a shower, but passed out after almost making it.
By the time her cycle of fails were done, she barely laid down for a nap before having to get up for school. I had her make friends so that her social would be good when she got home.
She’s finally clean!
I don’t normally do potty pics for anyone other than toddlers, but it was so sad that she kept almost falling off the pot nodding off.
This one had a great first day of school. He also got a huge head start on scout badges.
The empty area next to him gets new child age toys.
If I had known how rainy/stormy it was in Oasis Springs, I may have put this junk indoors. But I didn’t.
Look who’s finally happy again. She gets her homework done before doing anything else.
Her fun was tanked, so they played together and got to be good friends while doing it.
Nicholas made a friend at school. Scott came over that day too.
The lighting upstairs is a bit bright, but there was dancing to document.
Annette has the Whiz Kid aspiration and Nicholas has the Artistic Prodigy.
Oh, I forgot. Nicholas Loves the Outdoors.
So, I don’t control the parents anymore. They have no use for me. Stephan is a dumbass. He has been playing in this leaf pile for almost 24 hours and won’t come home.
Scarlet spends her time distracting the kids from their tasks, but I don’t mind because someone’s social is red again.
Meanwhile, Stephan is chatting up anyone that passes by. Still won’t go home.
He plays in the leaf pile again.
100 feet away, Harvestfest is going strong. Annette appeases her gnome.
Scarlet and Nicholas do not. After begging forgiveness, Scarlet wanders away. Nicholas gets zapped by lightning, but he is successful the second time begging for forgiveness.
Stephan: Help! I’m hungry and stinky and tired.
Stephan: But I’m not going home. I’m going to stand here and play.
I swear, if this was an ISBI, I’d hate him.
Yep, he’s still here and he’s still chatting and playing. It’s been 36 hours or more.
It’s getting late, but the Grand Meal is finally done. The kids were asleep, but Scarlet didn’t want to eat alone.
I finally took pity on him and made him walk 20 yards towards the house.
He finally got the bright idea to go home.
It was a long day of school after getting up in the middle of the night for food.
Nicholas is the first one to get to the Unicorn level.
Annette spent so much of her first days in failure, that she is pretty far behind. After school food with Scarlet helps her in the social badge area.
Stephan was caught flirting with the butler. He was very flirty and apparently so was the butler. Scarlet was not amused and is now Very Angry.
And she let him know exactly how she felt about it when she divorced him.
Annette got her Unicorn promotion a full 24 hours after her brother. It’s funny how different things are from when they were toddlers.
More blogging about her feelings.
So, the garden has gone to shit.
Making each other laugh, doing the secret scout handshake, and being friendly together.
Puts Annette ahead of Nicholas for once.
Seriously? How the heck did you get over to that leaf pile again? Omg.
Annette raided her mom’s inventory for stuff to donate.
Then we got word that Stephan is dying from freezing to death.
I was tempted to let him go, but I didn’t want to deal with sad kids. They are too busy for crying.
I forced him to go home.
Ryder wanted to come over and I thought it was a great opportunity for them to have a bit of fun.
Scarlet has all the rewards that she now doesn’t eat, sleep or pee. And something else. At the beginning of the challenge, her and Ryder woohoo’d in the rocket.
And we have a baby incoming.
It’s Monday again. Nicholas gets his first project. Both parents are forced to help them out.
So, I was having Nicholas play the violin with no aspiration progress. I searched and searched through the notifications and found that he had completed it already and I missed it. Whoops.
Nicholas has not caught up to Annette yet.
So, they take a vacation day.
Nicholas has completed two freaking aspirations. Annette is at 0 (She needs an A at school still).
She does finally finish one.
That evening, they head to the park together to work on the outdoors badge.
I kept them even and they got it within seconds of each other.
I found Scott. I had wondered why he stopped coming over after school. Also, he’s pretty cute. He might make a nice human spouse.
They both become Llamacorn Scouts at the same time.
Extra credit indoors.
They both grab a moodlet solver from their dad and get back to work.
As you can see, Annette is doing Rambunctious scamp and Nicholas is doing Whiz Kid.
It’s Winterfest. They all hand around the table with their Grand Meal and and doing all the winter social interactions.
Stephan is in mourning, but his moodlets are finally winding down. I think some of his leaf pile friends have died.
Well now. That’s interesting.
It won’t be until after the kid is born to realize I went after the Father Winter baby the wrong way. Dammit.
But anyway, time for presents together.
Ryder shows up and everyone gets another present.
More moodlet solvers from their mom and dad means that Annette can keep typing her little fingers off to max her skill.
Nicholas now only needs an A for his 3rd aspiration.
Scarlet and Nicholas sit down by Annette. She starts teaching Nicholas about responsibility.
Which finally puts her at max parenting level.
Annette has caught back up with Nicholas.
It’s the weekend. They both work on their Social Butterfly aspirations, but just like Adrianna and Scarlet, they will stop when they get to the last milestone. Neither one has a social skill higher than 5 and I’m tired of pushing them.
Annette does maker it to level 7.
While Nicholas is a little behind. Also, he gained 3 violin levels while I was trying to complete an already done aspiration.
I caught these two flirting.
And more flirting.
A romp in the closet later, and she goes into labor.
Holy crap, they’re human. Asia and Demetrius.
I was even nice and brought them indoors.
And turned the heat on.
Good friends is the goal.
Asia took a lot longer for some reason.
Guess who got A’s today.
Took all day for some reason.
Human toddlers that get her alien skin? That’s freaking awesome!
The twins have no clue the new toddlers exist. It was a long, hard day of school.
The new twins are not the focus. I might have Scarlet and Stephan help them to level 3 of their skills, but they did not get the father winter trait thing because I didn’t do it when he was visiting at winterfest. I’m so pissed.
Both kids have been hoarding their points and have both bought the Savant trait.
They will grab some leftovers and then wait until someone bakes them a cake for their birthday.
So, Demetrius is Fussy and a big brat. He is throwing a fit for no reason upstairs.
It looks like I missed the notification that Belladonna passed.
Scarlet buys her first money tree seed.
The cake is made, but I miscounted. They have another day before they can blow out the candles.
It only took 48 hours for Scarlet to be in the red with Demetrius. He is an asshole. I swear, I hate this kid.
That first potty pic? It took FOUR scoldings for being defiant for Stephan to be able to potty train him. That means that Scarlet had to stop potty training Asia so she could scold Demetrius because Stephan can’t.
He destroyed the dollhouse two or three times. Neither one got to level 2 potty.
It’s finally teen time.
And that’s all I can stand for now. Next time, Teen to YA is on the agenda.
