The Mendoza ISBI

Idiots do it their way


Chapter 2.10 Gone in a Flash

Hey there, i’m back with more craziness from the Mendoza’s.  Last time the youngest became kids, Tobias showed more than I would have liked and a pool was added to the house.

I start this time with a rare occurrence of Strawberry being nice to one of her sisters.


Strawberry: Then I shall rain death down on my enemies.  The people will come to know never to cross me.

Mulberry: Sure.

I suppose that is her way of being nice(ish).  The nightgown the girls are wearing is part of a set I got from the Sims 3 store.  I have been on there buying a few things recently.  : )


I don’t normally condone pets on the furniture but this was so cute.  They are best buds and are never far apart.  Those matching collars are great, makes it so much easier to tell them apart.


Shortly after they grew up I signed the girls up for ballet and Blueberry for Scouts.  Halfway through their age bars there was a recital.  Look how cute the little outfits are.

Raspberry: Is that a burglar?!

Stranger: I don’t judge you on your fashion choices

Ooh touchy.


Mulberry: Do I have to go, I’m sleepy




Strawberry: I can’t believe I’m doing this.


I was trying to get a picture of the four of them in their outfits but Mulberry rushed off and Blueberry changed clothes as soon as he got out.  Damn sims.


Upon arriving home Blueberry thought the best place to sleep was on one of the pool loungers, in the rain.  Naturally he got a cold soon after.

Blueberry: But it’s so comfy.


Mulberry is becoming the more productive of the family and can often be found at the easel when Maya isn’t using it.

Mulberry: Being a technophobe means my choices are limited on fun things to do.

Well there is reading, swimming, the dogs, the gnubb set, the chess table, the rocking horse, the doll house, the toy boxes…


Maya: OMG there’s a ghost in Dad’s chair!

That is your mother.

Maya: But she’s a ghost. *faints*

Good job fainting doesn’t count against my score.


As you can see the dogs are popular.

Kiwi: But I was going to feed them.

Nolan: I had the action first.

Jamie: It was my turn.

Tobias: Slow and steady wins the race.


I got the ice cream machine from the store.  Nolan was the first to find it.


However the rest soon started to appear.  The fun thing with this is whenever someone makes ice cream the whole family will flock to it causing a massive traffic jam which as you can imagine is chaos in this kitchen.  It does have the added benefit of making them sick if the eat ice cream when the machine is dirty.  So fun all round!


He does this all the time, it makes me laugh. I have no other reason for adding this picture.

Nolan: This is were the kids get their looks from.  I am as beautiful as a red rose.

Right, moving on


Another new toy I got them is this tablet.  I have seen it in a few legacies/stories.

Maya: This is awesome, it has Candy Crush on!!

Yeah, I am kind of addicted to the game. : D


Look at all these sims (and Melon).  Must be party time.  The kids are being teens.  Doesn’t time fly.


The girl in front is Alora Best.  She is Melon’s crush from prom.  This family is as bad as the Bunch family from Sunset Valley. She just isn’t right for our family, she has to go.


This made me laugh, as soon as Maya fired up the barbeque the men came running.

Maya: Can’t I cook in peace anymore.


Melon: It’s not you, it’s me

Robbie: Is he really breaking up with my sister.


I felt sorry for poor Miles not having anyone, so I became a matchmaker and got Maya to convince Miles to flirt with Katy McKinnon.  She is the Glamorous paparazzi that is always hanging around.


It worked!  Soon after they became an item and moved in together.  Make babies please.


Ok birthday time.  This is the closest I could get to all four at once.  Everyone else kept getting in the way.

Raspberry: Ok, I wish…

Mulberry: Don’t say it out loud, it wont come true.


Ok here they are as teens.  First up Blueberry. His new trait is Insane.


Next up Mulberry.  She looks a lot like Maya I think.  Her new trait is Heavy Sleeper.


Raspberry is next.  Her new trait is dislikes children.  Wonderful!


And last but not least Strawberry.  Her new trait is Insane.  I am really happy with how they all turned out.  It made my job of choosing an heir a little difficult.


Kiwi: Um, guys the party is over.  Guys?

Everyone else: *continues cheering*


This is another of Tobias’ idle animations using the cane.  I love the faces he pulls.  I really think you need to go take a bath though.

Tobias: This is my natural smell.

Smell is right!


Oh my, so many teens! This is what happens when you have 6 teenagers in the house and they invite friends over.  Melon and Kiwi got on the honor roll at this time.


Another day, another fail. -5


Strawberry: You are not my sister.



Ah yes I forgot about these birthdays.

Maya: *coughs sparkles*


Maya: My youth, gone in a flash.

She is now going though a mid life crisis.


Nolan: Yay birthday.

Lassie: *yawn*


Melon: Ha ha! Dad what happened to your hair!


Blueberry what are you doing?

Blueberry: Me and Mr Quackers are having a private conversation, please leave.


This two are still in love and still find the time to share sweet moments like this.


This is not so sweet -5


Nolan: Why is my house being invaded again?

Your eldest son is growing up.


Nolan is a young adult now.  Oh and Jamie grew up, forgot about that.


Here he is, doesn’t look much different.  I let him keep the hat.  His new trait is grumpy and his LTW is Paranomal Profiteer.  He will be available for download shortly.


That’s about it for this time and for Maya’s generation.  Next time her heir will be taking the reins.  I shall leave you with this painting of Maya’s which is a clue to who the heir is.

Chapter 2.9 Almost There

Wow look at that, another chapter! Bet you weren’t expecting that so soon.  Well you see I didn’t realise quite how many pictures I had.  There were too many to put in just one chapter so I split it.

So to recap last time Kiwi grew up and there was a party, during which Tobias embarrassed himself.  Piper & Lassie grew up and Tobias started to loose his marbles.  Lets hope he’s found them now…

silly (44)


Or maybe not.  That poor child

Raspberry: *is scarred for life*

Jamie: Good god man, put some clothes on! 0.0

silly (46)

But why scar one child when two is better.

Maya: Dad please put some clothes on.  The children do not need to see that!

Mulberry: Want food!

Tobias: But I just want to play.

silly (53)

Lets move on to the first of the birthdays.  Oh dear god no!

Melon: I did not need to see that! must unsee.

silly (90)


Anyway here is Melon as a teen.  His new trait is Neurotic.

silly (58)

Ok, next is Mulberry. Everyone has now taken to ignoring Tobias in the buff.

Tobias: It’s actually nice to feel the wind around my…

OK stop there!

silly (67)

Here is little Mulberry all grown up.  Her new trait is Technophobe.

silly (64)

Next up is Bluberry and thank god Tobias is decent again!

Blueberry: Cake now mama

silly (70)


And here he is as a child.  His new trait is Heavy sleeper.  Isn’t he a little cutie.

silly (76)

Next up is Raspberry.

Maya: Can we just get to next one, I’m shattered.

Don’t worry were nearly done.

silly (97)


I really like how her hair looks with the higlights.  It will appear different in later pics as she glitched and I had to change it.  Anyway her new trait is Eco- freindly.

silly (87)

And finally we have Strawberry.

Strawberry: But I wanted red sparkles, this does not suit my evilness.

Maya: Shut up and grow up!

silly (93)


Her she is, the last one to get a makeover.  Her new trait is Equestrian.

silly (99)

The first thing Strawberry did as a child was to sit in the rocking chair.  I love her evil grin here.

Strawberry: That’s because I love other peoples misfortune.

silly (101)


Yes this time it’s because you’ve upset your granddad.

Tobias: But that’s my chair.

Learn to share.

silly (107)

Lassie has discover that having a bigger body has it’s benifits.

Lassie: Dig, dig, dig, dig.

silly (112)


Jamie why are you so happy?

Jamie: The divorce is final, I am finally free of this crazy family!

We shall see.  I have decided to keep her in the house at least until Tobias expires.  I will decide her fate then.  The dogs may stay though.

Jamie: ….

silly (122)


Strawberry loves to show her evil side and it is often poor Raspberry that she picks on.  These two do not get on at all.

silly (128)

Maya: FINALLY I can go back to work!

Then why don’t you look happy?

Maya: I am outside for one, plus I age up soon.

silly (132)

These two had a field trip to the town hall.  I realised they hadn’t come home afterwards and I find them doing their homework outside the town hall.  I don’t blame them really, with so many sims in the house is must be hard to concentrate.

silly (134)

Aw the quads first day of school.  Blueberry rushed of first and ruined the photo. Grrrr

Raspberry: So very tired.

silly (137)


Raspberry: *thinking* I hope no one saw that.

*Sigh* – 5

silly (138)

This guy called up and asked Jamie out for a date.  Since she had recently divorced I thought why not.  They actually got on really well and stood there chatting for ages.

Jamie: Have you heard about this strange fog? Apparently people are disappearing.

silly (139)


Finegan: Um, I think you are confused.  That was the plot of a movie that was on last night.

Jamie: Really? Are you sure?

silly (141)

Back at home the bedtime stories are in full swing.  You show see it, it is utter chaos with four of them all wanting bedtime stories at once and none of them going for they’re actual beds.

Maya: And then without warning the King ordered the traitor’s execution. The executioner swung a mighty sword down and decapitated him with a single stroke.

Um, are you sure that’s the best story for a child?

tiny (14)

Maya: Nobody saw that right?

I did -5

tiny (16)


Maya: Oh no the maid saw. I am so embarrassed.

ManMaid: This is great. That reporter lady will pay me extra for this!

tiny (30)

Things aren’t much better outside.

Raspberry: It wasn’t me.

Nolan: This is what we get for not potty training them.

– 5

tiny (10)

I finally got round to redesigning the back door area.  I have shrunk down the space for Maya’s garden and added a nice little grave area for Jacklyn.  Tobias will be put here eventually so they can be together again.

tiny (26)

I also sold some unwanted stuff and added a pool.  Lassie was the first to find it.  I have never seen a dog swim in this game. (due to my preference of cats) It’s actually kind of cute.

tiny (27)

This isn’t so cute.  Maya wasn’t so graceful when it came to entering the pool.

tiny (29)

She was the first to find the loungers I placed at the side of the pool though.

Maya: Ah it’s so nice not to have any screaming toddlers anymore.

We are almost near the end of Maya’s time as heir. Next time I will be choosing her heir.

That’s about it, I will leave you with Tobias contemplating what to do to the next child that asks for a bedtime story!

tiny (18)


(Don’t worry, I do not condone violence towards children.  He is just twirling his cane.)

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.
