We start this chapter off with… um…
Silver… making… macaroni?
I have no idea why I took this?
Bonehilda: Oh, what a sweet baby. If only I could hold her, I could know true happiness! I always wanted a baby of my own, but, alas, I have no ovaries…
Bonehilda: Time to throw myself into work and wait for the day when I’ll be able to interact with Tin and experience the true joy of a child’s innocence and laughter.
… taking a quick break from the Bonehilda/Tin drama, Palladium continues to be generally awesome and build her logic skill. Except she’s stealing Silver’s computer. : /
Silver: Oops. I broke the computer. Guess I can’t work on my writing anymore. No choice but to send me to the spa.
Fix it. Fix it and get back to work.
… speaking of ‘not working’.
Quan: I don’t trust you with my daughters. You’re evil.
Palladium: Yeah? I don’t trust you with my grand-daughters! You’re so frugal you probably reuse dirty diapers.
Quan: You can wash cloth diapers! It’s perfectly sanitary!
Bonehilda: … are either of you going to pay attention to the screaming infant?
Palladium: Anyway, about this comic book I read…
Bonehilda: *sigh* If I had a flesh body I could feed you.
Tin: About time you paid attention to me!
Bonehilda: Mm hm. You better help that child. I’ve been standing her for like half an hour while you were chit-chatting.
I really wish Bonehilda had the ability to care for the kids. Because she’d be pretty awesome at it, judging by her behavior.
Speaking of kids… I want one that’s not teal. : / Preferably one whose father’s genetics are readily apparent in its face.
And Tin grows up just in time that we won’t need to buy a third crib! Since nursery turned out so nice I don’t want to make it into her permanent room, and the spare room has been co-opted into a study, I build a little ‘playhouse’ real quick beside the main house. This shall be where the children and teens will live.
As you can see, the main room is just full of toys.
We’ve even got a little oven for food and a table for eating and homework. I’m contemplating the possibility of adding a fridge for some quick meals, but I haven’t figured out a place to put it that would look alright.
The bathroom is bathroom. That is all there is to say on that matter.
And this is Tin’s bedroom, which she doesn’t need to share with crying babies, and ghosts probably won’t float through her bed at night because the main house is closer. Probably.
… and we’re really hoping the ghosts won’t come to her. Not only because child sims will more likely than not start the whole ‘bedtime story’ thing over if they get woken up, but also because…
… Tin got coward.
Tin: OMFG a skeleton! *runs away from not only Bonehilda, but thought bubble of Bonehilda as well*
Bonehilda: But… I thought what we had was special!
I was seriously disappointed by this. I was hoping they could be best buds. But now we have to dismiss our maid. And she hasn’t even become annoying and started playing hopscotch or cooking constantly yet. : /
Tin goes to bed without harrassing the adults for hours on end! Score!
Now that Bonehilda’s gone, Quan and Palladium actually have to care for the children. Or maybe they sensed my ire and are trying to redeem themselves.
Quan: She’s my daughter. I should take care of her.
Palladium: I was here first!
Quan: Don’t worry, Annie. I won’t let your evil old grandma hurt you.
Palladium: I HEARD THAT.
Tin goes off for her first day of school.
I… didn’t capture the face-one/robot bus driver, so I have nothing clever to say about this.
Tellurium is on the way!
Scary Bush Man: I find Silver attractive and think we should get to know each other better.
WHO ARE YOU AND HOW DID YOU GET OUR NUMBER?
Tin: Are you prepared for autonomous cuteness?
Hold on, Antimony’s aging up.
Dammit. Teal and a Palli/Silver clone.
Alright, commence with cuteness.
Tin: RAWR I AM A DINOSAUR!
Tin: VOTE ME FOR TORCH-HOLDER.
There’s still quite a bit of time to advertise, Tinny.
… and did you do your homework?
Ah. Yes. Continue being a dinosaur, then. I have no objections.
Yttrium came out in the morning to play shuffleboard while Leroy hides from Edamame.
… I’m actually not sure where she is.
Palladium got asked out on a date, so I let her go. It’s also family outing day. Which means keeping an eye on uncontrollable sims on two different lots. Whoopie.
… the date doesn’t go well, as you can see.
Our family outing is at the beach, which I swore I wouldn’t do again, but I figure I can use the ‘call everyone home’ function if I’m worried about drowning children. I hope.
We also brought a picnic basket in hopes to lure swimming sims out of the water, if necessary.
Quan and Tin interacting! Yay!
Turns out I didn’t need to worry, because everyone went home on their own pretty soon after we got there.
I learned that Tin had gone home when I got THIS.
Um… okay, then. Is this telling me to make Tin a vampire?
Silver and Antimony were actually the last ones to head home. She was hungry, but there was no point in setting out a picnic if no one else was there.
Tin, our genius, has started working on her logic skill. I have high hopes for her in regards to her skill level when she reaches YA.
Palladium and Tin interaction!
Palladium: You’re a smart girl, Tin. I’m sure you could become a great diamond thief when you’re older…
Eyes rolled in back of head means that Silver’s done with her writing skill! On to painting!
Silver’s only got a few more skill points of painting left before she reaches the top, and painting tends to be a bit more interesting than writing, because you can actually see what she’s up to in the pictures. So I’m pretty certain Silver will reach her LTW before long.
