(I’m afraid that sometimes, just like real life, the Sims doesn’t exactly sizzle with excitement. My gameplay time ran out this week before I could come up with anything really super entertaining to do. On the up side, I got a lot of knitting done.)
Andrea proved to be a somewhat indifferent stay-at-home dad. He sat there for a long time complaining about the baby before he finally got up and did something about it.
Look dude, I’m sorry that the crying baby(who you are staying home to care for) is interrupting your game of Solitaire or whatever.
I never quite got it together to follow Emily’s suggestion of cooking the toddler’s favorite food, pureeing it in the food processor, and then serving it to them in the high chair. The best I could do was pureed Goopy Carbonara.
And then it was time to grow up. Xolotl looks suspicious of this “growing up” thing, as well she might. For one thing, now she has to go to school!
For another thing, I couldn’t be bothered to build a proper addition. So the girls had to sleep on the back deck.
I did manage to feed Xolotl her favorite food (Grilled Cheese) as a child. I love how they clap and say “Yayyy!” before eating their favorite food!
(I do that when I eat grilled cheese sandwiches, too.)
Meanwhile, the game gave Xena this sort of ascetic/granny/Chloe Sevigny in “Big Love” sort of outfit. It was pretty funny, so I let it stand.
Once the girls were old enough to be in school all day, I started sending one parent or the other outside to look through the telescope. That’s how you get meteor strikes!
Then it was time for Wingdings to get old.
Cheer up! You can retire now!
It’s not a party until someone pees their pants.
I decided that Xolotl should be an angler. If only because there’s a nice fishing hole adjacent to their property.
I love the rendering on the shark! I wish you could send your Sims into the water to get attacked. Sadly, Sims can only swim in pools.
With the girls in school and Wingdings at home all day, there’s a nauseating amount of huggy smoochy stuff happening.
Blecch, gross! Get out there and look through the telescope, you!
Xolotl has the “Never Nude” trait, which means that she showers in her bathing suit.
One day after school she went over to a boy’s house. I got excited, thinking that maybe I could engineer some teen romance!
But they hated each other.
Why would you visit someone you hated after school? Anyway, Xolotl ended up doing her homework at his kitchen table alone.
And after? More fishing!
Lovely sunsets in Twinbrook, I must say.
