Toddler Placement Problems

It is now time for a very brief update on what’s happening with the main family… very brief because I was only concerned about the graves at that point.

What’s up, Sweetie Bot?

Sweetie Belle: I’m tired.

Too bad. Go check the graves.

These two townie people happened to be checking out the graveyard.

Lady: Isn’t this exciting and historical, dear?

Man: Boooring.

Pay some respect to the dead, sir!

Man: But there aren’t any graves.

*jaw drop*

They’re not in front of the house, either!

Lois: Or in the mausoleum.

In a last-ditch effort, I went to my backup save of this town (ALWAYS KEEP YOUR BACKUPS) and checked again.

All there. I’m going to just keep them there for now. : /

Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of an ISBI with a toddler. I was surprised to see that Laurel was actually a very attentive parent, taking care of Rubidium’s needs.

Oh Laurel… you had me hook line and sinker, didn’t you? I’ve played ahead of this; I know what’s coming.

Krypton is out jogging for an opportunity or something, so let’s hope that the baby’s getting taken care of. Although I doubt that Laurel could be neglectful enough while he was jogging that the social worker would come to take them away.

Laurel: Hi Ruby.

Rubidium: Mama!

That face. Tell me that is not the sweetest.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 2.58.54 PM

Laurel then has an issue getting to the easel.

Laurel: She’s in the way!

Maybe if you hadn’t put her there?

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 2.59.47 PM

This issue works itself out.

Rubidium: I block front door now!

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.00.43 PM

Daddy-daughter hugs. :3

Laurel completed the one before and starts a new painting. Kind of sad that she’s probably not going to get enough LTH points that I can change her LTW to something she can do. But I need to learn that I shouldn’t expect too much of my spouses in this.

Laurel recycles the paper…

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.06.38 PM

Then goes into labor right in front of Rubidium. Who, if you’ll notice, has been placed right in front of the easel again.

Rubidium: *trying not to look* D: Just finish my bottle… finish the bottle so I can move…

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.07.00 PM

Rubidium: Or play with Lucky.

Pretty sure that’s its name.

Laurel: Our daughter is strange.

Krypton: I’m too tired for this.

Laurel is taken to the hospital so Ruby won’t be scarred for life.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.10.47 PM

I apparently have no pictures of the babysitter. Anyway, it’s a boy, and his name is Strontium! Strontium is athletic and perceptive. His favorite color is aqua, so together with Rubidium they can throw some wicked Miami Dolphins parties. : P

More painting. Laurel is trying to single-handedly disprove everything I’ve seen of sims on autonomy not being able to finish paintings.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.22.01 PM

Laurel: Hey St… Str… there’s no way I’m turning a name like Strontium into something that sounds normal, is there?

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.23.33 PM

I’m going to need to stop taking pictures every time she paints, aren’t I?

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 3.28.14 PM

But then I think my chapters would be half as long. : /

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 11.40.32 AM

Strontium grew up! He also got the nose, but he has Laurel’s hair as well. Not sure about anything else. Pretty sure he’s not a face clone of his sister, though. : /

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 11.43.06 AM

Strontium with his makeover.

Strontium: Heir favorite?

Hush, I have to see how your personality is too.

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 11.46.39 AM

Guess what just happened~!

You can tell because Krypton looks so excited.

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 11.57.24 AM

Ruby grew up and is now a grumpy, absent-minded slob. She’s also a cutie, and has inherited her mother’s ears. … didn’t she grow up during full moon last time, too?

Rubidium: Yes. You have a problem with that?

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 11.57.56 AM

Ruby gets her own room so she won’t be bothered by Strontium if he screams. I remembered you could set their beds without sending them to them after I’d already used Ruby’s command. I’m being honest here. : P

Anyway, I found this scorecard that’s used for Goth-Sanity (which is awesome) and I like it better for my ISBI so I’m switching to using something that’s based on it.

  1. Ohey! You read mah blog! If you’ve commented before, I didn’t put two and two together because I am retardz. But I ❤ the Mendeleevs, I quite enjoyed the regular legacy and so far the ISBI is kicking butt. So keep it up! I look forward to updates!
