The Mendoza ISBI

Idiots do it their way

Chapter 3.7 Maybe I could use my magic to make him yellow


I’m back from my trip to London with another instalment of the Mendoza ISBI.  Had a great time in London. Saw Wicked and the poppies at the Tower of London.

Melon: This is the Melon show! Get to me now!

Don’t be rude.

Melon: Me! Me! Me!

Can you stop spoiling my intros please.

Melon: But it takes too long. You should start with a photo of me every time, that’s what my fans want.



I downloaded these neat baby monitors from the store and now have them all over the house, they are fantastic! All the adults are so much more attentive. I wish I had them with the quads.

Melon is changing the nappy of one of the burritos at the changing table I got from the store.  It’s the only time it was used. 😡

Melon: Dad, can you grab the other baby please.

Tobias: What other baby? I don’t see another one. *almost impales baby on cane.*


This is where Tobias was going BTW. He was so close.



OK, I’m bored of burritos now. BIRTHDAY TIME!

Nolan: Hurry up I want cake.

First up is….


Weetabix.  Not yellow but blue hair and nice brown eyes.  Nice change from pink.



Maya: Where’s Dad?

Melon: You don’t want to know.

Next to the cake is..



All Bran.  Looks like he got all his colouring from Melon.  His fav colour is green so his hair looks exactly like Mulberry’s with the altered tips.

All Bran: I still cute? You still wuv me? ❤

Aw, how could I not.


This is where Tobias was.  He is really trying my patience.  It is taking all my will power not to kill him via MC.



Tobias is not the only one who has a liking for the rocking chairs.  Magrat is always in one.  She doesn’t let her duties as a mother slip though.

Magrat: Maybe I could use my magic to make him yellow.

Um, no.


This is something I didn’t realise with these monitors.  Toddlers can call the adults to them.  Little All Bran here abuses this a LOT.  He is a little attention hog.

All Bran: But I get lonely. 😥


Melon: Now that the kids are settled, want to make more?

Magrat: I thought you’d never ask.


Picture added purely for Magrat’s attempt at a seductive look.

Melon: Works for me. 😀



Was that a lullaby I heard?

Melon: Sorry that’s my phone.

Where were you hiding that? o_O (Bonus:  Name the Doctor who episode that line is from.)

Magrat: I KNOW! I KNOW!

Quiet, don’t tell them.


Look at that! He put them both to bed! Not sure if it is because of the monitors but everyone loves these kids.

Nolan: It’s easier when there’s only two.

Melon: In you go bud.

Please don’t suffocate the children. o_O

All Bran: *muffled* help me

And now, we interrupt this chapter for an important toddler spam. Brought to you by Weetabix

Love his little face here. ❤

Yup we have a witch in the family, isn’t it great!  On another note in case you haven’t noticed the boys have matching bunny babygrows.  I just can’t resist doing that with multiples.

Maya: YES, I RULE!

Maya is pleased because she is now at level 8 of Business and therefore completed her LTW.  I think this is one of the easiest LTW for an ISBI, no skilling needed.  I used her final controlled action as TH to change for work setting to ‘hold meetings.  She did the rest all on her own.

Weetabix: Up grandpa up. No sleeps yet.

Tobias: I’m getting too old for this.

All Bran: Wuv you grandpa. ❤

Magrat: Here we go again. I’ll never fit into this dress after this.

Yup, more babies on the way! 😀

The nursery is still party central thanks to those monitors.  Magrat is here to clean BTW!

Melon: Your turn little dude.

I love this thing.

Magrat: *blissfully happy*

Not sure that’s the best maternity outfit.

Magrat: You doubt my fashion choices?

I doubt the fashion choices of every sim that chooses their own clothes.

  1. The kiddies are cuuuute! I think I love All Bran better, since I prefer green over pink. They seem to have very similar faces, unless I’m mistaken? The different hair colours make it hard to tell.

  2. A witch baby!!!! That is so exciting! And with the Winters’ blue hair. I do love Bran too but Weetabix and that hair just tugged the heart strings. I hope the next baby is yellow for you though.

    Also, I’m glad you had a great time in London! I can’t wait for another chapter. Horray babies!

    • So pleased that at least one of them is a witch. I forgot Magrat was one as she never shows it. XD
      I have to agree, they are both cute but I think Weetabix with his genetic diversity is my fav at the mo. I do like Jacklyn’s hair colour but it is nice to have something different!

  3. I think Weetabix currently holds the position for “favorite child”, but with more on the way I know that this could definitely change. I just love the blue hair and the fact that he’s a witch, hehe. It’s so cute that toddlers show their supernatural-ness!

    I can’t believe Tobias is still hanging in there, lol. How many days old is he now? Looks like he’s going for a record XD

    Glad you had a great time in London! I’d truly love to go someday! ^_^

  4. I have to agree with other comments, Weetabix is my current fav. He is SO cute with that blue hair. ❤ So great that he is a witch too!
    Those monitors look really helpful. I might have to get me some of those. Might need them! XD
    I laugh everytime Melon interrupts your intros! So funny! XD
    Glad you enjoyed London. I've seen Wicked, it's an amazing show. Much better story than that crappy film a couple of years ago.

    • Thanks, I am glad Weetabix has so many fans. He is my current fav at the moment because of his hair. Shame he isn’t yellow though.
      I kind of wish I found the baby monitor sooner. It is one of the best things I have got from the store.
      Am I right in thinking you mean the film Oz: the great and powerful? That film was ok but I do think the story from the stage show is more well rounded.
