Last time, Velma was an adorable toddler, Cosette developed an addiction to jellybeans, and our gen 5 couple worked on their careers and LTWs.
It’s library time!
Apparently we’ve lost a couple toddler books; but I set out the Toddler Skilling Assembly Line anyway.
Velma only just got through them all before passing out. Brillo didn’t notice.
Seaweed and his great-great-grandfather Bruce play some basketball. Bruce got skillz!
Cosette received the Uncommonly Good opportunity!
Her life bar is full, so there’s no way she’ll get the full chain, but at least we can get the plants up to scratch for our next gardener.
I was playing around with the baking station and noticed the option to bake a birthday cake. Seaweed was duly instructed to do so, and Velma was brought out…only for Brillo to put the toddler on the floor so she could sparkle. She was so close to a caking!
As per the rules, her new trait is Rebellious (all the offspring from now on will be given this trait as soon as possible – until gen 9 when someone completes the Law Enforcement career).
And since she’s insane, she has a wacky combo of outfits – this is her sleepwear.
CAS shot and her everyday outfit. She looks good with shorter hair framing her face, so I went with it. She’s definitely got the ginormous Rourke eyes – passed all the way down from Phoenix Someone/Grape Sorbet!
Dark wood and yellow go very nicely in her new big girl room.
Her first child action is to play in the sprinkler.
And then she plays chess with her grandmother. Who has apparently been into the jellybeans again.
Naw, she wants to be friends with her father. We’ll lock that one in and make it happen.
Her first day of school, she goes in her adorable formal outfit.
Marius reached his LTW!
Seaweed is working hard on his career; staking out the festival lot.
There’s a big crowd outside Maybelle’s house – they’re mostly her children. From L-R inside the fence, we have Alex (with Flamingo’s hair!) talking to Seaweed, Maybelle who needs a new haircut, Tate the teen with his back to the camera, Abbey. Outside the fence is Kiana Serzo (Sabrina’s daughter), and on the right, Maybelle’s eldest Teddy, flirting with someone whose name escapes me.
Also outside is Marcie, one of the twins born last chapter. So many redheads in this family! Abbey didn’t pass along many of her genes.
Speaking of Kiana, she’s now dating Sean’s son. Seems the simself families may be joined!
Seaweed completed his case, and topped the PI career! Gen 5 objectives are complete!
Brillo and Seaweed are really into one another; both of their wish panels are full of wishes for one another.
With the one child restriction lifted, Brillweed are free to risky woohoo to their heart’s content.
This time they chose the time machine.
And immediately they exited, they’re at it again.
Hot tub this time.
Velma was outside the whole time…I hope she’s not scarred.
Hey hey, we have a visitor! With Brillo’s hair and Cosette’s eyes… this is a time machine child! Her name is Kristi, she likes pop, blue and frogs legs. Her traits are Brave, Irresistible, Savvy Sculptor, Frugal and Angler. So random.
This is Cosette’s family tree, showing all 12 of her grandchildren. 7 have Chance’s red hair, making it a full 5 generations is has persisted through. Brillweed’s children have escaped it… so far.
Hot tub woohoo seems like it was successful.
Seaweed sings karaoke with his dead father. I love the animations, so I spammed a little:
Brillo pops, pregnancy #2 is official!
Velma went to a friend’s house after school today. Straight away she does her homework. Nerd.
Her friend’s name is Tiffanie Cross, and she lives in a tiny 2 bed house with her mother and 5 half-siblings. The two of them become friends quickly.
Seaweed found the teppanyaki table!
Brillo is off to break up with her other RI; Greygory Goblin.
He didn’t seem to mind much.
Velma rolls some random wishes… this one can easily come true, if she’s awake late enough.
And since she’s rebellious, she also wants to play pranks everywhere (that’s her athletic wear, btw).
Seaweed is getting the key to the city!
A big crowd turns out for him.
Along with an invisible mayor.
More and more people kept showing up.
There are quite a few sims we know in this crowd; Penny is insulting Seaweed, Abbey in the purple at the back, Sean’s two fairy sons, Charlotte on the far left, next to Penny’s eldest son with the distinctive Rourke hair.
Brillo got a promotion!
Cosette has spent the entire day at the festival lot, alternately skating and napping on the recliners. She’s nearing the end of her life bar, so I just let her do whatever she wants.
This little cutie is George Bathory, offspring of Percy Bathory and Giles Zale.
We also got a new greeting card photo, the first of the summer ones.
Thank goodness for MoveObjectsOn, allows me to line the cards up above the door.
We haven’t had a painter in the family since Jess, so it’s about time. Velma doesn’t have any skill-specific traits, so she’ll go with this.
Cosette spends a lot of time chatting with the magic mirror; I think she’s lonely.
I failed at getting a shot of it, but this is Brillo in labour.
It’s another girl! That’s 3 for 3 for Brillweed. Interesting, considering Maybelle and Penny only had 3 girls between their 10.
Seaweed stood staring at his new daughter for a good 3 sim hours. Baby girl Rourke is named Roxie, she’s a Lucky Hydrophobic who loves blue, fruit parfait and geek rock.
The family’s net worth is now up to $2.4 mil!
Back at the festival, Rad is cheating at skating.
Cosette wanted to let off some fireworks.
Velma may as well have the Loves the Outdoors trait, she spends so much time in the backyard.
And setting pranks; Brillo isn’t happy about her changing hair colour.
Seaweed finally maxed logic. Man, that skill takes so long to master.
Cosette has taken to meditating in front of Roxie’s crib, almost like she’s guarding her newest granddaughter.
It’s almost cake time again, and this time we will use the cake Seaweed is making.
Roxie is growing up!
She has Brillo’s hair! I didn’t get a closeup shot, but you’ll see her face later.
Seaweed may just have a favourite daughter, he didn’t roll any wishes to teach Velma her skills.
Speaking of Velma, she’s very excited about her baby sister.
It’s a gorgeous sunny day outside, so the family spends the afternoon in the backyard.
Velma and Brillo throw water balloons at one another.
Roxie was tired and Brillo went to work, so it’s Velma and Seaweed together for the afternoon. They’re getting to know one another.
Working on Velma’s wish to be best friends with her father.
Wish fulfilled, and Seaweed completes another charisma challenge.
Cutie pie sleeping.
Thanks for reading! Next chapter, Velma turns teen, and Cosette probably keeps on keeping on… we’ll see.
