Oh, so many tasteless jokes to be made. But yes, my goal was a baby with its father’s blue skin, and ideally its mother’s terrible facial features. Or at least the nose.
First, to make room, I moved out Coreopsis, Dallas, Splutz, and Engelbert. I was sorry to see them go, but I didn’t know how many babies we would need to have in order to get the right combo of traits. (Last time I tried this, I gave up after baby #20.)
While this was going on, Eldritch was auditioning to perform a gig.
Unfortunately you can’t play a gig when you are pregnant. I don’t know why, but I assume it has something to do with the outfits. (The game has a limited set of outfits for pregnant Sims, and you can’t change them.)
After moving out all those Sims I got a little bored, so I bought a SimBot with someone’s Lifetime Happiness Points.
Solomon comes in very handy. He cooks, he cleans, he takes out the trash! I’m jealous.
I gave him the “Family-Oriented” trait, so he spontaneously does parental duties like teaching little Fenton to talk.
Finally the blessed day arrived. For reasons unknown, Eldritch went into labor while still wearing the little pillbox cap from her performer’s outfit.
It was twins! First to be born was baby boy Friday.
Next, baby girl Fern.
Nanny Robot to the rescue.
When they grew into toddlers, I noticed that Fern also inherited her father’s silver eyes. And is that her mother’s beak nose that I spy?
Unfortunately, I forgot that when Coreopsis moved out, so did the person with the “No Bills Ever” Lifetime Happiness reward. What with all this baby excitement, I overlooked the pending bills, and the repo man showed up.
Noooo, not the big blinky arrow, it’s my favorite!
(Luckily we can just buy another… they have accumulated §1.2 million in cash, not counting the value of the house and its contents. Ridiculous!)
