5.4 – The One With The Baby Problem

Another big post! Why do I like to do this to myself? Aah well, I’m happy with the content of this one 😀

I still haven’t started work on that damned dress I was going to make, but other that.. I feel awesome!

I can’t be bothered with a recap this time, I only posted a couple days ago and I’m feeling lazy.

Amy: Aren’t you the cutest little baby ever!? I must stay here and watch you until I die.

Harry: Waaaa!

Screenshot-1897

Amy’s plan was immediately thwarted by Martin’s attempt to see his son.

Martin: Excuse me, new dad coming through!

Screenshot-1898

It was then I encountered the baby problem. Everybody wants to crowd around the baby swing to watch Harry.

Mia: Amy, I can’t see my grandson because you’re in my way.

Amy: I can’t see my grandson because Martin is in my way.

Martin: Guys, I just want to hold my son!

Being the fullmoon (it seems my mod is working again), there were lots of ghosts and the obligatory zombies.

Can you imagine my delight when I realised that Anne was one of the zoms!?

Screenshot-1900

Instead of journalism attacks, ZomAnne went straight for physical attacks.

That’s Mia, in case the hair threw you.

Mia: MERCY! MERCY, I BEG!

Screenshot-1901

I told you the waterslide was a bad idea!

Amy: I can’t watch my grandson twenty four hours a day, I have to do something.

Screenshot-1902

I thought that ZomAnne needed recording. Forever.

Bubbles: Remind me why I painted a picture of our worst paparazzi?

Because I hate her and want to remember the time she became a zombie.

Screenshot-2029

Bubbles: Harry, wake up, I want to cuddle you.

Screenshot-2030

This is all that happens in the house at the moment. These two work on LTW skills, Mia and Amy are on the waterslide or in the pool, and Harry is confined to his swing.

Screenshot-2031

Amy is so close to mastering the Charisma skill, so she spends 90% of her waking time working on that. Unless I forget about her, and then she’s in the pool.

Screenshot-2032

Night time comes, and the paps bust out their swimwear and get into the pool.

I should really build a fence around that thing, but it’s kind of fun to watch.

Screenshot-2033

Happy birthday Harry!

I completely missed the shot of him blowing out the candles because I was waiting for Mia to show up before I took pictures.

Amy: Woo, I’m the most attentive Grandma ever!

Screenshot-2034

Mia: I’m finally here!

Harry: I’ve already done my sparkling though.

Screenshot-2035

Toddler Harry!

Bubbles hair and Martin’s skin tone – he was originally a Bubbles faceclone so I rerolled his face. I’m not entirely sure it changed anything.

Screenshot-2036

Either way, he’s a total cutie!

He’s an absent minded, excitable little boy who likes classical music, firecracker tofu, and pink!

Screenshot-2037

I then found the next baby problem about having the elevated kitchen.

Amy: Should somebody help him?

Bubbles: Cake first, baby later.

Screenshot-2038

Eventually, Mia rescued him.

Again, I’m not sure ‘rescued’ is the right word as she immediately dropped him into the playprison and left him there.

Harry: Why doesn’t anybody like toddlers? 😦

Screenshot-2039

See? I told you all these two do is play in the pool.

Mia: Sign me up for the next Olympics! My dives are spectacular!

Screenshot-2040

Amy: I’m not sure I really want to be sliding down this so close to the house…

She’s so cute 🙂

Screenshot-2041

Harry: You might be feeling awesome, but guess who’s really awesome!?

84_005

Damn, that was fast!

Screenshot-2042

Walls down, faraway plumbob shot because I wanted to capture the points thing…

84_007

YAY BUBBLES! And as a Young Adult, too!

Screenshot-2043

84_008

And so she completes her LTW, earning me my 37th legacy point (I can’t believe it either), and with the same painting that I think Ella completed hers!?

Screenshot-2044

There was some celebrating.

Screenshot-2045

I mean, it is a big achievement, completing your life’s goal and all…

More Hogwarts Students Gen6 babies!

Screenshot-2046

Lori: Urgh, I can’t believe you get a pool.

Mia: Well that’s not my fault, take it up with the creator.

Amy: This is very nice cake. Very nice indeed.

Screenshot-2047

Bubbles: So what do I do with my life now? I have nothing to strive for..

Maybe you should get a job?

Bubbles: Don’t make me laugh.

Screenshot-2049

HARRY LEARNED TO WALK!

He’s blasting through these toddler skills so quickly!

Harry: Well, I am the Chosen One.

You’re just named after him, don’t get ahead of yourself kid.

Screenshot-2050

Bubbles’ delicious cake breakfast is instantly chucked back into the toilet.

Bubbles: Somebody should write a book on how to deal with this!

They have.

Screenshot-2051

May: Hey Mia! How’s life?

Mia: Why are you still here at 9am?

Screenshot-2052

HAHAHAHA SUFFER BITCH, SUFFER!

Screenshot-2053

These two are still ridiculously in love, which is hilariously appropriate given the song I’m currently listening to..

Amy: Without love, life is like the seasons with no summer~

Mia: Without love, life is rock’n’roll without a drummer~

Screenshot-2054

Martin needs to write reports for work, so obviously we take the easy option of digging through the neighbours rubbish bins for information.

Martin: It’s okay everyone, I’m a cop!

Screenshot-2056

Martin rushes home to write up his report, while his wife works on her latest book.

There’s couple-y shit all over this house, stop it.

Screenshot-2057

Can you see the Alto’s bin?

I spent a gooood five minutes before I finally found it. In the very bottom right corner.

Screenshot-2058

Martin: Don’t panic, I’m a cop!

It didn’t work the first time, I don’t think anybody’s going to fall for that a second time.

Screenshot-2059

Harry discovers the play table!

Screenshot-2060

Bubbles discovers she’s pregnant!

Bubbles: I’m gonna be a great mum.

You already have one kid, remember?

Screenshot-2061

I wanted Martin to question Anne – you know, turn the tables a little bit – but instead the heartfarted and she left.

At least we got rid of her, right?

Screenshot-2062

Bubbles: You’re gonna have a brother or sister soon, Harry, what do you think of that?

Harry: But… I’m the Chosen One?

I warned you.

Screenshot-2063

Amy: I can’t wait to have more grandkids, can you?

Mia: More!? Maybe there’ll be enough to go around this time.

Screenshot-2064

Hey Boa, as much as I love to see you, it’s 11am. Don’t you have to disappear into smoke now?

Boa: Nah, I’m hungry.

Screenshot-2065

I didn’t realise this till now, but Bubbles can write comic books!

So of course we’re going to do that.

Screenshot-2066

Martin: It’s about time somebody got the mail, I don’t think anyone’s checked it since they moved in here!

They haven’t.

85

His boss.

Martin: Gosh, that was a lot of mail.

I know, right?

Screenshot-2068

This is where Mia spends more of her life now.

I don’t care, it makes my graphics look pretty and I can get all fancy with the screenshots!

Screenshot-2073

Harry: Why is the dead man still here?

Boa: This is much nicer than the afterlife. I’m gonna stick around for a couple more days, kid.

Screenshot-2074

After a nice glitch where nobody could interact with the potty, Harry starts on his potty training!

86_003

I don’t know where else to put this; it didn’t take that long anyway!

Screenshot-2076

Martin: Don’t you have somewhere else to be?

Boa: I lived here long before you did, son.

Screenshot-2077

Family outing!

Well, Bubbles, Martin, and Amy.

86_006

It’s only so Amy can make more more friends (she needs two more friends to complete this) and so Martin can interview people. Bubbles is stir crazy, so she got to go too.

Screenshot-2078

Amy: So you’re a tourist? How are you liking your stay so far?

Tourist: Is that Blossom Gordon!? Do you know her? Could you introduce me!?

Martin is answering his phone, I swear.

Screenshot-2079

I tried for a nice day out, but BOTH paps from the lot decided to follow us. Anne is obvious, but the lady on the right is Anne’s backup.

Screenshot-2080

86_007

I love Charming Introduction. People are instantly become friends!

Anne: *muttering* so that‘s how you make friends…

You need all the help you can get, sweetie.

Screenshot-2082

Martin: Hi, I’m a cop.

Beau: Hi Cop, I’m Beau.

Martin: No that’s not what I –

Screenshot-2083

Martin: Tell me about yourself.

Beau: It all began back when my dad left my mother…

Screenshot-2084

Beau: Your son sucks! He isn’t the Chosen One at all!

Martin: On second thoughts, I don’t want to know about you.

Screenshot-2085

Jonathan is here too!

Screenshot-2086

Martin: They all left me! They’re going home without me and I’m left here in the dark!

Do you know why they left you?

Screenshot-2087

Because your wife is in labour on the other street!

Martin: *offscreen* Oh. To the hospital!

Screenshot-2088

Instead of freaking out like Sims normally do when a woman in labour walks part, they all instead complain that she smells.

Bubbles: I’m about to push a baby out of my body, but you all complain that I smell. You’re all going to die soon, anyway.

Screenshot-2089

Brick’s here! I don’t know why, Galadriel isn’t having a baby and he works for the school.

Maybe he just wanted to support his twin!?

Screenshot-2090

Speaking of twins… Meet Luna Gordon!

Born an easily impressed genius, she slips perfectly into the place of real Luna, and I am incredibly glad I can use this name! She likes pop music, cookies, and spiceberry (YES!).

Screenshot-2091

And here’s Remus Gordon! I dithered for ages on which name to use, then remembered Remus and decided I couldn’t possibly name him anything else.

He was born a heat loving neurotic baby, who likes Egyptian music, Dim Sum, and the colour grey.

They were both born on Week25, Day4, which is exactly 6 weeks after Brick and Bubbles! How time flies in this game…

Screenshot-2092

Harry: Wait, where did all these cribs come from!?

I expanded the room, because I realised that Harry wasn’t actually sleeping in the swing and was instead just passing out on the floor whenever he could.

Screenshot-2093

Bubbles gets home and instantly breaks.

Martin: Honey, get out of the table please. You’re hurting Luna.

Screenshot-2094

Look at the precious little swingers! I’m not going to lie, Luna is my favourite already. I really love the name, and she has my favourite colour in the game. But things change, so we’ll see!

Screenshot-2099

Amy: A fellow spiceberry lover, hey? I think we’re going to be great friends when you grow up!

Screenshot-2100

It’s Leisure Day, so everybody heads out to the pool, and Amy finally gets the hang of the waterslide.

Amy: Whee!

Screenshot-2101

Then she relaxes on the lilo that matches her colours!

Screenshot-2102

Meanwhile, SuperMum is instead caring for her babies.

Bubbles: You’re a real cutie, aren’t you!?

Screenshot-2103

Bubbles: Can you move? I need to see my baby.

Mia: I can’t. I’m transfixed by how cute he is.

Screenshot-2104

Harry: Gwanma magic trick?

Of course baby Harry is right there when somebody dies -.-

Screenshot-2105

Martin: Oh no, my poor son is going to be traumatised for life!

Screenshot-2106

I wasn’t ready for this, though I should have known.

Lyra = Harry
Remus and Luna = Amy…

It’s that damned law again!

Screenshot-2107

Amy: Please, I want to befriend my grandchildren!

Grim: You’re two days overdue, let’s go, lady.

I was too busy being sad to get a MC screenshot, so that will come once her ghost appears.

Screenshot-2108

Martin: Ah, the Grim Reaper was so scary!

Bubbles: Mother!

Mia: Wife! My love!

Harry: DINNER!

I don’t know why Mia and Bubbles thought bubbles look like death mixed with a dinner dish. Deathly Dinner?

HARRY GORDON AND THE DEATHLY DINNER!

Bubbles needs to write that.

Screenshot-2109

I think Bubbles has a favourite….

Screenshot-2110

Bubbles: You’re such a little sweetie, I hope you’re just as adorable on your birthday tomorrow!

Screenshot-2111

Seriously, do you feel like giving poor Remus any attention??

Screenshot-2112

Bubbles: Nah, party time!

Poor Remus.

Screenshot-2113

Martin: Don’t worry Remus, daddy’s here for you.

Screenshot-2114

Though not for much longer, apparently…


Woah, I wrote this post super quickly. Like, an hour and a half maybe? I’m actually pretty impressed, though this was a fun/easy chapter to work on. I like it when that happens.

Updates from around town!

84_002

Yessss, similarly aged babies! Though ‘Andre’ is a horrible name, no offence.

84_003

I think I missed the shot, but Martin basically got an instant promotion out of this. He’s steadily climbing!

84_006

Don’t you dare.

84_009

Willow! Ooh, that’s such a sweet name, and if she looks anything like her Momma she’s going to be a cutie. I’m definitely going to look out for her!

84_010

Martin’s boss gets married.. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one too, I like Blair.

84_011

Wait, didn’t she just have a baby with somebody else!?

84_012

84_013

I really don’t know who though putting Brick in charge of kids was a good idea, but he seems to be doing okay for himself.

84_014

I feel you, passer-by.

84_015

😮 Spare baby baby!

A spare’s baby is having a baby… That’s cute, and complicated to say.

84_016

Please have some kids already.

84_017

Aaah! 😀

84_018

Seriously, what happened to Willow’s dad!?

86

Brandon is Kenny and Sierra’s second son, in case anybody forgot about him. I do, regularly.

86_001

As long as you guys don’t forget about Willow.

86_002

Well, he’s not old!

86_004

And neither is this one! Go Sams!

86_005

Yay!

86_008

Yes but did you take Willow with you!?

86_010

What happened to Bella!?

Heh, the question that has plagued Simmers for years.

86_011

Don’t. You. Dare.

Also, I need to fix Galadriel’s adult hair pronto.

86_012

Andre and Marques? Guys, get your shit together and give your kids better names!

86_013

😀 AngelSam’s gonna be a Gordon! 😛

86_014

YES BUT BABIES?

86_015

:’)

I’m actually quite proud of these two.

86_016

Jon’s a dad! I bet she’ll be gorgeous!


Ooh, something I’ve been meaning to add for weeks (since April!), but on my course one of the assignments involved creating a fictional deer farm and producing records of that farm. It was just to prove we know business stuff like how to fill in movement forms (which I’ve been doing since I was ten but whatever), along with staff records, petty cash receipts, invoices etc.

We had to sign stuff off with a made up name – our fiction deer farm’s manager.

20160425_141329

Lyra runs the place, and Bubbles is an employee!

20160425_141320

And in my movement form, Lyra Gordon shipped some deer to Tewl Langurd – because he was the first thing to pop into my head XD

  1. As soon as you said twins I was like you HAVE to name them Fred and George! And then I saw it was a boy and a girl…. but you named him Remus! I love you! I was actually going to say to you if you have another child youd better name them after a marauder and you did!
    No, not Amy!! 😭 Damy you equivalent exchange…..
    Ah the fun that can be had with making up your own names for assignments. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if Ben was a Sims legacy reade and he was like hang on I know those names….. 😀

    Like

    • Luna was born first so I couldn’t have done that anyway xD Plus I had no idea she was expecting twins, I hadn’t done any of the things that help increase twins so it was a total surprise! I would’ve used Lilly if I didn’t already have one!

      I’m a little worried for Mia now tbh!

      If Ben was reading this I’d probably cry XD

  2. Yas Anne as a zombie 😛 And baby Harry is so cute! He does look a lot like Bubbles… And yay Luna and Remus! I love how you included Remus’ name, I always liked him in HP 🙂 Dang, all those memories are coming back…

    Harry Gordon and the Deathly Dinner! Please make Bubbles write that XD I was sad to see Amy go though

    Also, I love how you used your sims for the forms! I need to start doing that whenever I need to make up a name lol

    Like

    • I WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE HER LIKE THAT! Evil cow -.-

      Harry’s the most cloneish at the moment, the twins are a nice mix, and baby four is still a burrito so I’ve no idea what they look like! Remus was definitely my favourite maurader, so it had to be him. If it hadn’t been, I probably would’ve called him Seamus! XD

      That will be Bubbles new book! Amy was a surprise loss, she was only two days over the life span and they normally seem to go on for longer than that.

      I get so anxious over making up names.. so I just went with what I knew!

  3. What the heck! I’m pretty sure I started to comment on this months ago, but I must have gotten distracted and exed out the browser. Well anyway, there’s so much great stuff in this chapter! 1) Anne the Zombie! Good call leaving the pool unfenced – maybe if you’re lucky, she’ll end up drowning in there? XD I’ve had several pool-addicted paps get fried in the sunlight, so anything is possible. 2) Harry’s face. He certainly doesn’t look like a Bubbles clone, and goddamn is he ever cute. 3) Dat sunset. 4) Remus and Luna ❤ Fingers crossed Luna gets her mother's hair! 5) The fact that Amy is worth two people by the laws of equivalent exchange. I guess we always knew she was awesome. 6) My simself dating someone under 80, but given Xander Clavell is the Tewl Langurd of premades, I'm not sure that's an improvement. 😛

    And finally, I got a serious kick out of you using legacy sims on those forms. We all know how good Tewl is with wildlife, so that can only end well! XD

    Liked by 1 person

    • Sounds like something you’d do 😛

      1) I seriously hope so, I don’t think I’ve ever hated a sim more XD
      2) Harry was a faceclone originally but I fixed that, and I love him.
      3) Remind me to take more fancy shots.
      4) I love the names more than you know! And you already know Luna got her daddy’s hair, but she’s the first (naturally) brown haired Gordon!
      5) It was technically only one birth, but still two sims and Amy had a heart of gold so it makes sense.
      6) Ah yes… But at least he’s not an 80 year old Tewl!?
      I suck so hard at making up names on forms like that, and I figured Lyra would be the perfect person to run a business.. right? XD And why wouldn’t we send some valuable deer to Tewl? The thought of him be chased around a lot by an angry stag makes it all worth it, really…

      Like

  4. Aw, Remus and Luna. It kind of perfectly fits, the moon theme and all. Love it! But sad that Amy had to die to accomodate them 😦 You must have short elder lifetimes, I swear they only became elders a few chapters ago…or maybe coz I’m reading all at once.

    Harry is adorable, good work with the reroll. Definitely doesn’t look like a Bubbles clone. I am a bit disappointed he didn’t get Mia’s dark hair, though.
