What followed last week’s update was a lot of birthdays.
So many birthdays that the entire family ate leftover birthday cake, breakfast lunch and dinner, for days.
A representative bit of chaos at the dinner table.
There wasn’t enough room upstairs for everyone, so I set up a barracks in the basement.
More birthdays, and more cake!
Rielle got the best combination of outfit and haircut at her teenage birthday.
To my surprise, most of the kids spontaneously do their homework as soon as they got home from school.
By the time everyone was in the child stage, Klango and Quimby had free time on their hands when the kids were in school. I decided to have Klango max out all of his skills. Here, he’s upgrading the tub.
So far I have maxed out his Athletic, Cooking, Fishing, Gardening, Handiness, Logic, Painting, Writing, and Martial Arts skill. I think Photography will be next.
Not sure which of the kids painted this one. Somewhat disturbing.
And then it was the Final Birthday for Randy and Rihanna! Once they aged into Young Adult, I moved them out and phoned the adoption agency.
Meet baby girl River. “Oh crap,” Klango might be wondering, “Where did all the cribs go?”
I built a sub-basement (which they can’t access) for storage. No point re-buying a thousand cribs over the next few weeks!
And just in time for baby boy Ross.
One benefit to the conveyor belt of children: free teenage in-home child care!
