Homework? Help!

Guess what guess what guess what!

I now have a periodic table hanging right over my desk!! … well, over it and to the left a little. But still.

I’m pretty much definitely sure that Krypton has favorites. He wants to teach Strontium to walk, talk (not pictured), AND use the potty, but he wants to send Rubidium to boarding school. Which we’re not doing, because I want to see how she’ll act without me guiding her. And I’m not sure how much sending kids to boarding school fits in with the rules and the spirit of the ISBI.

Strontium: I’m adorable!

Yes you are! And still a ways away from making me want to facepalm.

I doubt we’ll finish everything, but we can at least go for learning to walk.

While Krypton taught Strontium, Laurel ran outside to vomit (probably, I wasn’t really privy to what was in her queue) and promptly forgot to vomit. And she doesn’t have the absent-minded trait.

Zombie: *crickets chirp in mind*

I also noticed that this whole family was standing outside the empty Mendeleev Graveyard. That’s normal.

Laurel: Well, off to work!

Krypton: … you have a job?

My thoughts exactly.

Lucky: I’m a real boy!

No you’re not.

Rubidium ended up going to school without breakfast. Which is bad. Don’t do that, kids!

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.48.39 PM

Carmella: Rawr!

Sun’s up, time to go. : /

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.49.23 PM

Then I reset a fairy zombie, but his wings were still there. xD

Laurel had to leave work early for a pregnancy pop.

Laurel: And it was my first day back, too.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.51.36 PM

She makes it home before Krypton has to go for the carpool, so no babysitter needed!

Unfortunately, Strontium’s in the yellow and she decides to paint. : /

Rubidium heads home with Gator Wolff.

Rubidium: We can bond over our strange names and our faces which differ wildly from the Face 1 norm.

Be proud of those faces.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.54.20 PM

Rubidium does not understand how to door.

To be fair, door does not understand how to door, either.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.55.06 PM

She goes inside to work on homework and is instead interrupted by this guy.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.55.23 PM

Rubidium: Did you not see me trying to do homework? Do you want me to fail and be punished?

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.55.44 PM

Rubidium: I’m going to put dye in his shower. :3

Well, you’re going to have to do that on your own. I can’t help you.

Rubidium: Homework first, revenge later.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.56.02 PM

Seriously, man?

I’m sure absent-minded Ruby has enough trouble focusing without you interrupting her every second.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.56.26 PM

He then tries to tell her a scary story. Luckily, Ruby decides to work on homework rather than listening to him.

Rubidium: So this is why they say to do homework at HOME, and not a werewolf’s house.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.57.07 PM

Of course, as soon as we get the dad off our backs, Gator is the one to interrupt her.

Rubidium: I don’t want to talk about gardening, Gator. I want to pull a prank.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.57.53 PM

Are you done yet? D: Go take care of the baby.

Laurel: Shhh. I’m in the zone.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.58.11 PM

Strontium: MOMMMMMYYYYY! D;

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.58.47 PM

I check back on my dear Rubidium to discover she’s quite given up on homework. Today is not the family’s day, it seems.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 7.59.47 PM

Luckily, Krypton’s work day ends and he gets home in time to care for the baby before he starves to death. Laurel completes her painting soon after. I hope it was worth it, Laurel. I hope it was worth the therapy we’ll need to pay for now. Poor kid must have mommy issues out the wazoo.

Back to homework for Rubidium.

Completion Bar: I’m so sad and empty. 😦

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.00.09 PM

Rubidium: Fuck this, I’m going home.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.00.26 PM

Rubidium: Except ‘follow Laurel’ is in my queue, and I can’t because she’s in the bathroom!

Just go home.

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.01.03 PM

Then she made this face when she saw Laurel leaving the bathroom.

Rubidium: MOTHERRRR! I SHALL HAVE MY VENGEANCE!

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.02.05 PM

Rubidium then goes to sleep with the lights on, because Lucky switched them on when he/she came in to poof next to the bed.

Lucky: All the better to see you with, my dear! *evil cackle*

    • Mine do that in some of my other games, too, although the Mendeleevs seem to be good about it. It helps that they don’t have smartphones yet in the legacy, but they’re actually pretty good after I get University, too.

      • Gah you’re lucky! My legacy is horrible about doing good things automomously, they barely take care of their own children!
