TS4→ Alphababy 1.14: The Finale!

End My Suffering Gen 1 Alphababy Ch 14

Build up your strength kiddos!  School today.

Or not?  Darnit!

School project time.

I’ve never once seen that bridge!  I can only assume it’s because Amelia helped and she had level 9 logic at the time.

Yumi got a B their first day despite going to bed directly after aging up.  The only thing I can think of is that she pondered moves on the chess set before school and got the mental to 2 since they all start just before 2 after aging up.

Both of the boys inherited the active trait from their dad as children and thus are going for high motor skill.

Extra credit for Wren and Xyla now that their projects are done and needs are up.

This was a nice change.  I only had a few of them go for motor as their needed skill.

He was Bekka and Caelyn’s dad.

If you’re going to stay out there at least sit on the swing.

Birthday time for the teens!  

Unna was visiting.  Mom had to bake another cake first.  I don’t know why I kept insisting on using the honey cake it doesn’t last nearly as long.  

Wren first…

Then Xyla.  Selfie time!

Look at that!  What an extremely strange sight!

Homework time!

Not often we had just a relaxed chat in this household.

Yay!  It took most of her life but we did it!

Oh gosh you’re sick?!

Drink some OJ and go take a nap.  If her mental skill wasn’t high enough at this point it was very close.

Thankfully, the boys never got sick.  They had a good time swinging and sliding.

Mom began stocking the fridge with a huge amount of food for tomorrow’s family reunion.

In the meantime, let’s just ensure that the kiddos will get an A Monday.  Yumi already had her bar full so she had no worries.

Why do my sims keep doing them quickly when I tell them to do it carefully?!

So cute.  Mom’s back to cooking.

Yumi was still wide awake from her napping when the boys went to bed.  Tomorrow morning is the reunion.  Now, I invited approx 60 sims all with the last name Marx.  I have my sims per zone set to 35 and so not all showed at once.  All of the spouses I made leave.  There were a few households that had family living in the same house as mine that were renamed Marx that weren’t related so I had to fix those.  I just made people leave off and on until more stopped arriving.  Okay here we go!


Welcome to Stormy tries to figure out an extremely complicated (to me) slider plug-in!  I’ve got it set to go fairly quickly.  If you hover over the photo you have the options to pause, go backward, or go forward.  I decided not to caption it.  I felt like it distracted from the pictures themselves.  

[smartslider3 slider=”5″]

All partied out bud?  You may have noticed that 26 spent a lot of time during the reunion meeting all of the nieces and nephews.  (I really want to say cousins!)

Mom proudly adds everyone’s names into a little genealogy journal she’s been working on.

26 is very interested in the journal.

See?

I found Zed out here hanging from the monkey bars.  Bedtime!

The only time Yumi ever showed her hot-headed side.  Good thing she’s already set for the A in school.

Yay!  The sound actually scared me so badly I paused in reaction and was able to screencap this quickly.

Well, this is it.

Yumi first…

Zed next…

And finally, 26.

A rare treat, they get to eat the cake instead of adding candles and putting it back in the fridge.

While Zed and Yumi start in on their homework as-per-usual 26 claims he’s tired.

Have a nice nap, T.  We’ll see you soon.

Extras…

One of the twin grandchildren that had the wrong last name.  I had to give her a makeover.  Poor girl.

Okay so, I took this pic because it was funny how many dogs they had but, if you follow me on Twitter and know about Cupcake already, she’s the third one from the left.  If you don’t well… that’s Cupcake who you’ll meet in a few chapters who is also the Cupcake that mated with another Cupcake and I made a joke about it a few chapters back.

I saw this woman walking with this ridiculous get-up…

She’s one of the wives!  That’s not one of her outfits either.  So weird.

I thought the umbrella was supposed to prevent that?

Zed’s party wear.  Like he couldn’t decide between formal and ultra-casual.

The Runaway Intro

A/N: This challenge was a blast.  I credit most of that to Amelia although her constant cheerfulness and peppy step drove me up the wall in the end.  If I make it through the whole End My Suffering challenge you’ll see her again someday.  The nice part about this one is I can do one generational challenge and then go back to the next gen at a later date.

TS4→ Alphababy 1.13: Birthday Bonanza

End My Suffering Gen 1 Alphababy Ch 13

Aging up time!  Yumi and Zed…

Then 26.

Taking advantage of our little helpers.  Still the weekend… might as well.

26: No touchy!

Zed is the only kid I’ve ever left that hair on.  It actually looks cute on him.

Why are you crying for her now?  You just pushed her away!

Okay, girls, this is it, five toddlers at once is… well… five too many.  But I digress!  The point is, we need to age up Wren and Xyla as soon as possible.

As with Steffie and Tevin before them, the girls were each assigned a twin.

Until Wren was up to 3 in everything and we were just left to wait for Xyla.

Oh thank goodness, Wren first…

Xyla next.

I get the feeling they weren’t pleased to be rushed.  Just… go to bed.  That’ll cheer you up.

I plopped a serving plate in there and 26 toddled out with his plate.

Independent little scamp.

He missed out on the bonding over food…

And potty.

He was just so happy on his own!

Ah, my little soldiers marching off to battle.

Well, I mean, after breakfast, of course!  Most important meal and all that jazz.

Sadly, these two didn’t have the option to go to school.  I thought they aged before midnight.  It’s happened several times but I can never remember when they aged up exactly.  Anyway, homework…

And school projects.  It was raining.

Zed learning to talk…

And basic needs.

The other two are awake.  26 doesn’t seem too interested in whatever Yumi has to say.

It didn’t really feel too fast this time.  We did get the whole weekend with them including a trip to the Spice Festival after-all.  Unna first…

Then Vida!  

Uh, better let the younger girls use the toilet!  Yikes.  Also, I have no idea what mom and Unna are reacting to.

There they are all aged up.

Watch me watch you?

Then it’s his turn.

And also his turn to get some learning.

Morning kiddos.  Time to stare at fossils and such before school.

So cute!

Dude like I totally don’t blame her!  With all of the birthdays she’s here delivering gifts almost every single day!

Of course, not everything in her inventory is a gift but this is after getting the mail from 2 or 3 days.

Awe cuteness.  Taking advantage of how much he loves being alone to get his movement and imagination skills up.

While the other two grab something to eat and chat with mom.

Wren and Xyla got their Bs.  Unna and Vera didn’t get their As yet because they didn’t have a skill high enough.  I wasn’t in a huge hurry this time.  Of course, Vera came home with a mood swing to punish me.

Ohmygosh seriously?  

Tevin visited and was enlisted to help.

*sigh*  I already sold your microscope.  Now you gotta bounce off to talk to plants?

There, that’s better.

Unna working on her gaming skill while chatting with Wren who was making me crafts.

Everyone up and eating breakfast together.

While mom cooks more.  Always cooking I swear.

This is so cute!  I should have bought toddler books in the beginning.

Awe, gonna play with your sister?

Spoke too soon.

I didn’t notice until I was canceling it out that he was watching TV and reading a book at the same time!

More A’s.

Let’s just get the toddlers ready to age up too.  That would be ideal.

Giving Yumi a second wind.  You can do it!

We’re all waiting on you, Yumi.

She was very tired so the toddlers went first.  Look at them all lined up for their turn.

Yumi was immediately off to bed then it was Zed’s turn.

And then 26’s.

Our first look at the heir as a child.

26 was tired too.  Off to bed with him and it’s now Wren’s turn.

Then Xyla’s.

Can you umm… move?  So your sister can age up!  Anyway, Unna’s turn…

Then Veda’s.

Kinda a group after pic.  They weren’t leaving yet but I didn’t want to forget the selfies…

So, I guess I somehow forgot to get their final trait pics.  *sadface*  Here are their rolls to make up for it.

For the first time ever we didn’t have enough beds!  Unna and Veda had to share mom’s.  Surprisingly, she wasn’t tired.

Extras...

This scared the hell out of me!  Everyone was sleeping and I looked up and saw this woman just standing there!

I’m uh pretty sure he’s Bekka and Caelyn’s half-brother but it’s far enough removed I decided to just leave it.

Gosh, now that really puts the timeline into perspective now doesn’t it?

Like your pets there do ya, Odyssa?

Chapter 1.14

TS4→ Alphababy 1.12: The Non-Alphabet Baby

End My Suffering Gen 1 Alphababy Ch 12

One nice thing about aging them up so quickly… they very rarely had mood swings or phases.  No rush to age these two up so I decided to wait for Unna and Veda to be ready too.

Which meant they needed to get their needs up before they could help.

Oh well, let him have his fun.

So nice having helpers.  Looking at these chapters it seems like there were a lot of helpers but I think it’s just that I took pics whenever it happened.

Getting those last few percentages needed to put little Unna over 3.

It was birthday time.  Everyone was ready.  Then the babies needed fed.  There was only like 2 hours left on the cake.

The older kids just helped the toddlers.  Unna first…

Then Veda while Unna immediately went to bed.  Kind of a lackluster birthday.  I was very frazzled at this point.

Mom was finally able to join.  Steffie first…

Then Tevin.

This just goes to show how extremely frazzled things were near the end.  Mom’s needs were terrible.  I’d gotten the notification hours before to age up Wren and Xyla.

Wren was paired up with Steffie…

Xyla was paired up with Tevin.

I realized I had no after pic of Unna and Veda and woke them up to get it.  Poor Unna wasn’t happy with me!

Potty training time.

While mom finally gets some proper sleep.

I think they were even out of food.  It was just insane in the end I swear!

Homework help.

Steffie and Wren finally tapped out and both went to bed.

School project time.

First teen grandchild.

So cute.

Bright eyed and her normal cheerful self again, mom stocked the fridge back up.

And Steffie, Tevin, Wren, and Xyla were woken from their naps for more potty training.

Unna: What the heck how’d you finish before me?

Rina showed up at the door so mom got her selfie.

Then, while we’re at it, Steffie’s.

And Tevin’s.

Ohmygosh why did you even come here?!  You know the house is full of kids!

Steffie and Tevin moved out into their own place and within hours Steffie was back visiting.

That had to have hurt.

I know you’re like what?  I remembered Deaderpool, the guy that made the MC Command Center mod, saying once that the number of babies is determined at birth.  So I did a little research and found a forum thread where people said that they get the fertility massage before the baby is born not when they are conceived.  I know this is true with the Ley Line trait so thought I’d give it a try.

Meanwhile, Wren was getting lots of help.

Triplets!  Two boys and one girl.  And mom looks so relieved.

Then she’s like wait a minute!  That’s an extra baby!  We had Yumi and Zed already completing the alphabet but another.  What to name him?!  Any name given would ruin the whole theme.  And thus, our final baby was named 26 since he’s the 26th child born.

Someone’s very proud of herself.

And then the dreaded realization that we have to deal with triplets again sets in.  At least for me.

Unna was sad.

Veda was angry.

Very angry!

At least Unna got over it pretty quick.

I really don’t think he wants to be played with.

Oh yes… we still have two toddlers to train up.

Lovely.  Another one upset about the babies.

That distraction didn’t last long.  Babies crying and all.

Now to wait the weekend out.

The Spice Festival!  I had to get out.

That was fun… while it lasted.

Back to the little ones.

Oh c’mon you know you want a bath!  Bubbles and a duck?  What’s not to like?

There we go, see?

Weekends are just so leisurely.

Cute… but you could be helping your sisters.

There ya go.  Watch Wren play.

Or umm… go do your homework and mom can help her.

Wait, do a project too.

Oops.  Kept Veda outside working on her project a bit too long.  You can make it!  Waddle faster.

Unna finished and was roped into helping Xyla.

And mom helped Veda finish hers.

Then helped Wren with flashcards.

Awe so sweet!  And that’s where I’ll leave it for today.

Extras…

Random grandchild marching past the house in a swimsuit.

Random elders walking by with identical looks on their faces.

The wall at this point.

Pretty landscape pic.

Chapter 1.13

A/N: I have to confess, I cheated with the triplets.  I went back to the main menu over and over.  I just couldn’t do another pregnancy.  I kept getting twins and it would make no sense at all for her to get pregnant again after Z!  Each time it was a girl then a boy… Yumi and Zed.  Like 5 times in a row.  The final time it was a boy/girl/boy.  I was invested in Yumi and Zed so they were ultimately named out of order.  The idea of having a 26th child to be the heir occurred to me quite early in the challenge although it wasn’t until near the end I came up with the goofy idea for the name.

End My Suffering Gen 1 Alphababy Ch 11

Rina hard at work on her logic skill.

Bedtime story for Steffie.

Since mom was still preggo, Pippin and Quade stuck around to help out.

So sweet.

So nice having help.

Mom agrees.

She aged up very cute.  She inherited the Hates Children trait from her dad.  

I decided to try and get her out of the house ASAP.

Two more girls.  Unna and Veda.  Which means Pippin and Quade had to move out.

Of course, Steffie and Tevin had to check them out.  I didn’t note their reactions but since most kids were sad I assume they were too.

That look!  Like, are you trying to get me out of the house?  Yes.

Playing outside.  Movement and Imagination.

I love getting that pic.

More teaching.

Yay!

I think she was the only one I kinda pushed out of the house.  I was afraid to have her help with the kids or even be around them.

It was mom’s birthday too.

Oh gosh so much for that idea.  She got the massage anyway.

Nyla visited.  Nice to have a helper when we’re searching for a baby daddy.

He was the only single sim other than the ones in their family that hadn’t married.

Preggo again.

Nyla was still hanging out.  I think Steffie was sleeping.  When there’s one helper or just mom I usually had them sleep in shifts.

I’d thought she was marked no more offspring but I was wrong.  I went through and made sure most of them were flagged.  In her case, she was getting pretty old!

There she is.  Mom and Nyla got to catch up while they all ate.

Back to the grind.  Steffie has to catch up to Tevin now.

So cute.

Caelyn’s here to help this time.

I was so happy to see Gaige!

Time to age up Unna and Veda already.

This is the only time I didn’t age up kids together.  Steffie was exhausted and still needed two skills to 3 and Tevin was wide awake and had been at 3 most of the day.

Plus, I had 2 other toddlers to care for.

Tevin: Look at me!

Steffie: What the?

The cake spoiled!  Just… take a nap.

Tevin was out sliding so he didn’t get to see.

And I was distracted by him and didn’t get a blowing out the candles pic!
