Idiots do it their way

Chapter 3.8 The One with too Many Birthdays


So last time the twins became toddlers, Weetabix was discovered to be a witch and Maya completed her LTW all on her own.

Maya: I’d like to see Melon do that 😀

So would I!

Maya: Hmph, no one is as awesome is I

Moving on. First up a birthday.  Coco Pops adult birthday to be precise.


Coco: I have decided to grow up here, near the dogs pee puddle.


Piper: This does not interest me.



Aw cute.  No tail though poor thing.

Coco: I request a treat now. or a hug, hugs are good.

Ha ha! This is what my cat would say if he could talk!


Tobias is still going strong at 140! he is getting more and more possessive of the indoor rocking chair.

Tobias: But that’s my spot. No one sits in my spot.


Melon is still a great dad and is usually on hand to care for them.



Not that the others ignore the twins.  There is usually a queue.

Melon: Does that mean I can relax and let the others do all the work?

Magrat: No, you lazy bum! 😡


Ok more birthdays! Doesn’t time fly.

Melon: I’m hungry is it time for cake now?

All Bran is up first.


Everyone turns up to cheer him on.

Nolan: I want to sleep.

Don’t you pass out on me.



All Bran: That’s my cake, I don’t see why I have to share.



Here he is after a much needed makeover.  His new trait is good.  He actually is not that bad, too bad his eye and hair colour is the same as Melon.


Next up is Weetabix.


Aw look at the looks Melon & Magrat are giving each other, so cute. ❤

Weetabix: Ew.



Here is Weetabix after his makeover.  His new trait is Artistic.  He is refreshingly different and is my favourite for heir currently.  I will wait and see what the other children turn out like first though.

Now then on to more birthdays.


Maya: Can’t I stay young?

Nope, the world doesn’t work like that.


Nolan: oh shit, I’m next. 😥


Maya: 😦

Nolan: My son is a work of art.

Melon: Thanks dad 😀

I got rid of that hideous dress and gave her back her hair. (with aqua tips.)  She is actually not bad as an elder.


Nolan: I wish to not grow old.

Cake: Wish granted. 😀


Nolan: He he.

Magrat: Um, what’s that noise?


Tobias & Nolan: OMG FIRE!!!

Maya: *faints*

Oh nolan -5


Firefighter: I swear how many times do I have to tell people to limit the number of candles they put on this cakes.


Weetabix & All Bran: *annoyingly high screams*

Tobias: This never happened in my day.


Ok let’s try this again.


Nolan: Sweet!

I think not. What is it with you and that hair.


There much better.


Weetabix! -5


He does redeem himself by looking cute on the rocking horse.


All Bran: Read me a bedtime story grandpa.

Oh no not this again. Can’t you just go to bed!


Um Nolan? Shouldn’t you be going to work.

Nolan: I’m old now, I can do what I want.

And that is standing and staring at the giant pawn all day?

Nolan: Pretty much.


All Bran: Grandma, Story?

Maya: Why haven’t you changed my outfits yet. I would rather die than go out looking like this.

All Bran: Stoooorrry

twits (3)

There, that better.

Coco: Is death all she thinks about now?

twits (4)

Aw look they found Melon & Kiwi’s old bunk beds.

twits (5)

Tobias: She’s in my spot again.

I swear when he pulled this face I thought he was on the way out. No, he was just thinking about the ice cream machine. -.-

twits (7)

Maya: But I was going to eat that. 😦

Magrat: It was burnt beyond all recognition. Trust me I’m doing you a favour.

twits (11)

Oh look I haven’t cleared away the wedding stuff.

Tobias: Splashy, Splashy!

twits (17)

Magrat: Oooh not again!

twits (20)

Magrat: huff huff. Why must I do this alone?

Where are the others you ask?

twits (23) twits (24) twits (25)

They simply don’t care.


twits (29)

Well, no one but Maya cares.

Maya: She’s having a baby! What do I do?

Really? after having SIX children, that’s all you can say?

twits (36)

Magrat: It’s coming!

twits (37)

It’s a girl! still not yellow. 😦

Anyway this is Cookie Crisp.  She is a Genius and loves the outdoors.

Cookie crisp

She is named after this sickly sweet kids cereal. Honestly who thought soggy cookies was a great idea for a breakfast cereal?


Maya was first on hand to tend to Cookie Crisp (to be known hereafter as CC).

I also tweeked the nursery a bit to make it more neutral.


Magrat: Want to make another?


Melon: Tell me she didn’t just eat that fly.

Fine I wont tell you.


They chose to do it in the shower.

Mr McQuakers: My innocence is ruined.


Melon finds time to paint again.  This looks a bit creepy though.


I prettified Tobias’ corner.


This is how he rewards me.

Tobias: It was the cat, I swear.

Sigh. -5


Piper: *howl* I’m getting old.


Maya & Nolan: YAY!

Weetabix: That’s a bit mean.


The last one, I swear.


That hair again. She is cute though so I forgive her. I have been dying to use that hair for ages.


Melon: In you go sweetie. We are all too lazy to teach you ourselves.



To end this chapter I can announce that Magrat is pregnant again. 😀 Isn’t it great!

Magrat: Bleurgh! Doesn’t look that great from this angle.

  1. Aww CC!! You’re lucky you’re so frickin adorable as a toddler. Not being yellow is an offence to those ridiculously strong genetics in my game lol. The twins aged up so cool though and I love them both. I don’t think I have a favourite yet. I would love to see one with yellow skin and purple hair. That would be an automatic win in my book!

    • All the kids this gen are super cute so far but I am a bit disappointed so little of Magrat genetics have filtered through. I can’t believe Jacklyn’s hair and eye colour are still going strong! However, Magrat is pregnant again. I am hoping for multiples (quads is turned off!!! XD ). I am keeping everything crossed this time.

      • Haha don’t want to venture through quads again? Not that I blame you though. I have my fingers crossed there will be a little yellow baby in there somewhere. Kids music- work your magic!

  2. I agree with Tam; it’s crazy that she got so much yellow and you have none 😦 I do love Weetabix, though, he at least got Magrat’s hair colour! Though he’s another male heir; since Maya was the start of the ISBI, you could try for girl/boy/girl/boy maybe?

  3. The boys are still cute as kids. Weetabix is my fav, love his hair. CC is super cute, those big eyes. ❤
    Wow that fire spread fast! Lucky everyone was ok.
