Chapter 2.7 Not What I Was Expecting

Hey it’s that time again.  There was a lot going on since the last chapter, Tobias has found a new obsession in the rocking chair. (seriously he spends most of his time in it!) Jamie found out about Tobias’s other relationships and Maya discovered she was pregnant again.

This time more stuff happens.


Kiwi: Isn’t that grandpa’s chair?

Maya: Look kid I feel like I’m carrying an army in here, I deserve some time in the chair.

As long as you have more than one child I’m happy.

Maya: I’ll just be happy to go back to work


Maya doesn’t spend all her time sitting in the chair, not when there’s a toddler to train.

Maya: One day you might be the star of the show.

Melon: What’s a star mama?


Tobias: What’s with this kid, I’ve read him 5 books already. Why won’t he go to sleep!

Kiwi has been a real pain lately. He gets read a story then gets up and asks for another. It’s an endless cycle

Kiwi: They just haven’t found the right story yet.


This time I am keen for Maya to have at least one girl so she is eating as much watermelon as she can find.

Maya: But I don’t like Watermelon.

Tough I want a girl, eat it!


Piper: I distract you cuz I do cuteness

Isn’t he a cutie. I can’t wait to see what he and Lassie grow up to be.


Kiwi: Dad, something’s wrong with Mum!

Nolan: Why is the kid watching this? 

Yay, baby time. : )


Maya: Twins you said, twins at the most. I hate you.

Kiwi & Tobias: But I wanted to sit in the chair.

Nolan: If I sit here maybe she won’t notice me. 

You may be wondering why Maya is upset. You see Maya had not one baby but 4!! I didn’t even know that was possible. She had 1 boy (pictured here) and three girls.  I will show piccys of them and give you their traits shortly.  I named them Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry & Mulberry. I wanted a berry theme, also I checked Mulberry is a fruit.  I didn’t know that, see games do teach you things!

Maya: This is not what I was hoping for. I’m going to be knee deep in dirty nappies

I was only expecting two at the most. I forgot I had overstuffed houses active. he he he.


In an effort to reduce the number of screaming mouths in the house Maya left poor Blueberry out in the snow.

Blueberry: so cold


Luckily Nolan went and brought him back inside.


With all these new babies poor Melon often gets ignored. Fortunately he won’t be a toddler much longer



Melon escaped the high chair in time for his birthday. Strangely he wasn’t appearing as an option in the cake menu so I used Master Controller to age him up.


And here he is as a kid, looks a bit like Maya I think.  His fav colour is pink so he got a pink themed makeover. I added pink tips to his hair. Looks good actually. He is my favourite of the kids so far.

Oh and his new trait is family orientated.

Melon: I look so manly.


Tobias: He’s not going to sleep is he?

Nope. This one is going to cost my points, I can sense it.


He walked to the front door to pass out. – 5 thanks Kiwi.


Ok let’s get rid of those cocoons. First up is Bluberry.


Here he is as a toddler, little cutie. He has the pink eyes and Nolan’s hair which I altered to add blue highlights and tips. His traits are Good & Exictable.


Next up is Mulberry.


She has pink eyes and inherited Jacklyn’s hair which has green tips added. Her traits are Absent minded & Artistic


I interupt this birthday for another fail. – 5

Piper: This one is ripe for a chewing.


Third for the caking is Raspberry.


Again pink eyes.  Her traits are Good & Heavy Sleeper. I like how her hair turned out with the lilac tips. 


Last up is Strawberry.


Look at her eyes! She is the only one of the children who hasn’t got pink eyes.  Her traits are Evil & Virtuoso.

Do you like the matching outfits the girls have?

And now let the fails begin. These all happen over the course of the birthdays.


– 5


– 5




– 5


– 5

Thanks guys. -.-


I added bunk beds to Kiwi’s room for the two eldest. Melon was originally going to get his own room but with the quads I need the space.  

Look Kiwi has finally found a bed!!


Nolan: I really like having all these babies around. More please

Nolan want baby

*rolls wish for another baby*

Um, no. You have 6 kids already and there is no room for more.  

Nolan: *sob*


Just a couple more things before I finish. This is the family’s new maid, Amber Newill

Amber: I will clean but I won’t like it.


She doesn’t seem to like Tobias judging by that death stare.

Tobias: Cake.


Finally here is an aerial shot of the new house.  At the front we have the main living area, entrance and corridor to the bedrooms.  Behind is the kitchen diner.  Next to the bathroom at the front is the master bedroom.  Kiwi and Melon’s room is next to that.  there are two nurseries at the moment, not redecorated yet.  Finally right at the back is Tobias and Jamie’s room although Tobias tends to sleep in the rocking chair since Jamie confronted him.

Chapter 2.6 The Good and The Bad

OK so last time Tobias moved and his new wife and their two puppies were added to the family. I had trouble remembering which puppy was which. I suspect I was blinded by cuteness.


I have now discovered a simple way of telling them apart. Lassie has a brown tail and Piper has a white tail.  Oh and the house got a makeover which I haven’t taken pictures of yet.


Tobias wished to retire from the low level criminal job that story progression gave him.  I let him and he now gets a pension of 50 simoelons a day.

Tobias: Hooray for me! Now I can spend more time with my grandchildren.


Or you can sit in the new rocking chair that I added to the house but forgot to recolour.


Speaking of grandchildren….



A few sims hours later.  (Someone really needs to clean that toilet BTW)

Yes Maya is pregnant again, I am hoping for twins this time.  Both Nolan and Maya have the fertility treatment LTR and the radio is blasting out kids music.

Maya: You promise this is the last time.

If you have twins, yes.



While we wait for the pregnancy to develop life goes on, things break and bedtime stories are told.

This picture also allows a nice view of the new kitchen.  I tried not to go to wild with the aqua which is Maya’s favourite colour. Nolan’s favourite colour is spice brown which really helped in toning things down.



Winter comes to Sunset Valley and with it comes more stupidity.  Tobias thinks the best way to fill his fun bar is to play with the sprinkers.

Tobias: Ah this is so refreshing.

The word you’re looking for is freezing.  Get your wrinkly butt back in the house before you freeze to death. *urge to lock him outside until he freezes to death and gives me pretty ghost*

Tobias: That’s not nice. Do you like being mean to us?

Keep doing that and you will find out.

Well at least Melon is still cute.


Melon: Where are my minions, I have not had attention for ages.

You have just been fed.  Entertain yourself.


Melon: At least I have you Cherri. You won’t ever leave me will you?

Cherri: *fears for life*


Cherri: *dies*

I like this kid!


*pregnacy pop*

Maya: Look at that, pregnant again.




You seem rather happy this time

Maya: This is the last one, I can go back to work after this.

Nolan: *dreams of chicken*



Hey look Jacklyn’s first visit since I acquired her grave!

Jacklyn: I’m back



Maya: *faints*

I forgot she was a coward.



Jacklyn: So your my grandson.  I hope you grow up to be a great thief.

Kiwi: Why can I see through you grandma?


Maya: Dad was right, this thing is great!

I can see arguments over this thing in the future.  I have seen it happen before.


Nolan: Is there a ringing in my ears? Also what is that strange green thing, is it a ghost?

One, someone left the stove on and walked away (-5).  Two that is the dog’s plumbob.

Nolan: Plumbob?


Nolan: Never mind. FIRE!!!

Tobias: What’s going on in here?

Maya: Ok don’t panic.


Maya faints again but at least she walked over to the other side of the kitchen to do it.


Ah well done Nolan, you just need to point that at the fire now.

Nolan: Don’t panic everyone, I got this.



Firewoman: Well done for putting the fire out before I got here.

Yes well if we had waited for you the whole kitchen would be burnt to a crisp.

Lassie: The fire is out, this makes me happy.

Piper: mmm Pancakes.

Kiwi: well excitement over, bored now.


Kiwi: Are you going to read me a story grandpa?

Tobias: What you say boy?


Kiwi: Dad, can you read me a story?

Nolan: You really have to learn to go to sleep without a story.

Kiwi: But Dad

Nolan: No buts, go to bed!



Nolan: This is much more fun than reading to my son.

Piper: This amuses me.

Me to Pip.


This doesn’t -5


Tobias: Yeah! I love this song.

It is at this time that I realise he has the same sleepwear as Nolan so I changed it.



That’s better.


Tobias: But I wanted to feed him.

Maya: Snooze you loose old man.


Nolan: Man I’m so tired. Boss really worked me hard today.





Piper: Feed me human

Nolan: need sleep.


Finally those two romantic interests in his friendship panel catch up with Tobias.

Jamie: I know about the other woman.

Tobias: Jamie honey, you’re the only woman for me.

Jamie: You cheating *******. Get out of my sight!


He was so upset that he smacked into the door on the way out and impalled his leg.



Jamie: I am so angry. I hate him so much right now.




Tobias on the other hand takes it all in his stride.

And that’s were I will leave it for now as I’ve ran out of pictures.
