I don’t remember sending Antimony to play with the babies in the swings… or the babies even having been in the swings when I left the game, but that’s how the game was when I opened it.
The room’s empty and ugly, but I’ll make it look nicer when they’re older.
Barium’s went off to a friend’s house… I’m pretty sure it’s a ‘friend’ he doesn’t know. He certainly didn’t talk with the kid.
Caesium goes over to a friend’s house and… sits out on the porch.
I guess Lanthanum’s the only one coming home.
In hindsight, I should have paid attention to the wintery weather when I picked out clothes for the kids.
… I really need to figure out where my ‘no glow’ mod wandered off to.
And the ‘no bedtime story’ mod.
That’s not your bed, Lanthanum!
And neither is that.
Barium got ‘follow Silver’ put into his queue because he was out past curfew, but he’s also running away from Antimony.
Antimony: I have no idea what you’ve been up to, but you’re an evil-looking thing so I’m sure you did something.
Seriously, the Zale legacy has ‘too cute to be evil’ and I have kids that look so mean I can’t believe they don’t have the evil trait or at least ‘mean-spirited’.
I ended up giving all the children sleeping bags to try and help them get to sleep, as well as putting a good number of tree houses in the back of the house; I know kids will sleep in them sometimes.
Oh hey, the basketball thing does raise athletic.
Saturday rolls around, so it’s time for our family outing… and a new world gives us new places to explore. This is Santa’s house, an art museum.
Barium first goes to bake something, because he’s hungry. There was a fully-stocked kitchen in the back of the house, but I couldn’t control him, so I couldn’t tell him to go get something from the fridge.
Caesium: Aw yeah, I’m the queen of this place now.
… once more, Lanthanum is left behind.
Family outing means everyone, Lanthanum.
I’ve been playing around with ideas for nicknames. I think I’m going with Dym. Anyway, Silver was carrying around poor Dym and wouldn’t change or feed him, so I had to wait for her to put the kid in a crib before I could help him out.
Antimony: I’ve already come to understand that my family is basically shitty to my kids.
Yeah, just keep looking at that fish, Silver. She spent the whole trip looking at either mounted fish or… I think it was a ficus.
And Antione is…
Taking a shower in a public restroom. Alright then.
Hope we don’t get kicked out of Santa’s house.
Like father, like son. *sigh*
Aw, they have Hanukkah and Kwanzaa things set up in the house, too. That’s nice.
Caesium: Welp, I’m done.
But don’t you want to learn about other traditions and celebrations?
Well… fine. : /
I could only direct Antimony for picking up babies, but I thought that the game would teleport the kids back to the house. It did teleport Cerium, but Dym was left on the lot. With no adults. So I had to send Antimony back to get him.
And Silver wets herself while we’re there.
The guys have no trouble taking showers in the bathrooms, but Silver can’t even bring herself to use the toilet. : /
This isn’t a fail; it’s just Caesium being evilly amused by her father’s discomfort. After getting a bedtime story in her brother’s bed and immediately hopping out of the covers.
I propose a new acronym: TETBC (Too Evil To Be Cute)
Okay, finally. She gets into her own bed without needing a bedtime story even. Dodged a bullet. Life is good.
And Silver finished a pretty painting!
Silver: Does this make up for my fail earlier?
I’ll call it even. I put the painting in someone’s inventory; I’ll try to remember to find a place to put it up.
But… but… you were in bed. Your OWN bed! HOW??
Barium’s my favorite right now. Because he’s sleeping in a bed. I don’t even care if he only made it to his bed at 3 AM. It’s a start.
Silver: But… this is my bed.
Shh. Don’t question it.
Silver: She wasn’t even wearing that outfit when she fell asleep.
Don’t question it.
Since Silver’s an elder, I get an action with her, so she started a portrait of Antimony. We’ll see if it gets finished.
Antione: Don’t you have something you should be doing?
Silver: Kicking your ass in ping pong, that’s what!
And then the twins became toddlers!
Cerium has her mommy’s dyed hair! Probably because we moved worlds and the game now considered the reddish color to be Antimony’s ‘natural’ hair color. I love her purple eyes.
Dym’s got red eyes and his father’s hair color. Neither of them have the angry eyebrows, either, so… points for that? I don’t think the kids’ parents look particularly angry, so the eyebrows might become a bit more neutral as they age up.
Aw, Barium! You were almost there! What’s the matter?
Barium: Caesium had the door locked!
Caesium: We’re gonna be friends forever and ever.
I blame you for this.
Quick shot just to show how angry the kids (especially Barium) look with those eyebrows. That’s pretty much a neutral expression on his face.
The sparkle’s a little difficult to see, but I’ll give you three guesses as to who put it there.
The name starts with a ‘C’ and it’s not the toddler who can’t walk yet.
Antimony: Huh, Caesium’s up pretty early. She must be excited for school.
She’s not up early; she hasn’t even gone to sleep yet.
You’re going to pass out after school today, aren’t you?
Caesium: That was the plan.
I hate you.
Caesium: I know. 🙂
Caesium: Well, off to school, have a nice day! MOM! Barry broke the computer!
Antimony: I KNEW he would do something sooner or later!
It’s funny that the kids won’t sleep at all unless they absolutely have to, but Antimony will autonomously go to sleep at two in the afternoon, when her energy bar is almost completely full.
Antione’s sleep schedule’s been off, too, for some reason. He’s actually at the point where he’s in danger of passing out, so I was a bit annoyed when this woman went up to talk to him.
And FAIL number one for the afternoon.
And F… actually, Antione found a nice place for a nap. I knew I picked the right guy for spouse.
Creepers gonna creep.
I’m just waiting for Caesium to pass out, and… WHAT is that in the snow over there? There’s just the top half of a plumbbob and I can’t click it.
Et tu, Brute? Then fall Caesium.
Antimony managed to get back to work, but we still have to deal with sims just running up to talk to her about this or that. : /
And Antione’s still not home…
