Vega 1: Round 4

Last round, Aracely became a colorful addition to the town when she moved in with London Caligula after completing college. Despite her family aspiration and London's romance aspiration, the week did not turn into a complete train wreck like a certain mysterious voice thought it would. Aracely soon became pregnant and gave birth to a son, named Toyota, while London began chasing his lifelong dream of becoming a MVP. We last left the family very close to having their second child.

I guess I don't have to ask you how it's going, huh?

Aracely: No, not so much.

Well, at least things seem to be going better for you.

London: This time I think I'm really ready...wish me luck mysterious voice!

So do you think he's going to get the promotion?

Aracely: Huh? Oh, maybe. I don't know. I need to go lie down.

You just got up!

Yes! One lifetime want down, one to go.

London: Well, Aracely's is going to take awhile.

What is hers again?

London: To have 3 kids graduate college.

Yeah, I think you're pretty far away from that lifetime want.

Aracely: Tell me about it. My first child is still a toddler and my second isn't even born yet. But it's nice to know that London will be happy from now on.

Toyota: Baby!

Observant little guy, isn't he?

Happy Birthday Dear...hang on, what's that I hear from the bedroom?

Ok, there's a birth and a birthday going on at the same time. This should be interesting.


Aracely: It's a girl! Meet baby Kia!

Great. Excuse me, but if I hurry I might make it back to the kitchen in time to see...

...Toyota grow up! Sorry your mom and baby sister kind of stole your thunder.

Toyota: What thunder? I don't hear any thunder.

Never mind.

So what do you think of your new daughter, London?

London: She's beautiful. You know, I never really wanted kids but...I'm glad I ended up with Aracely.

Yeah, me too. Any thoughts about marrying the woman?

London: Whoa, let's not go too fast...

Nice job, London.

Oh, sorry. I guess the 40,000 simoleon bonus kind of stole your thunder too.

Aracely: What? It's sunny outside.

Shouldn't one of you be inside taking care of the new baby?

London: Nah, that nanny will do it. She never leaves, even after I get home.

Trying for baby number 3?

Aracely: Maybe...

London: Maybe not...

Hmm...let's go with Greg Orachi.

Looks like that was the right choice.

Happy birthday dear Kia...

Aracely's skin may not be showing up, but her facial features sure are.

So I guess you're playing "Mr. Mom" while Aracely's working?

London: Yup. It's just me and Kia all day.

London: Come on, can do it!

You keep at that-I think I hear the school bus pulling up outside.

Toyota: An A+! All right!

Hmm, the timing's a bit off but then again you and Kia were born much closer together than normal...

Toyota: Huh?

Never mind.

Toyota: Check it out, Dad!

London: Way to go, son!

So, any signs that baby number 3 is on the way?

Aracely: I think I'm going to wait a little while. I don't want to have another one so close together.

Can't say I blame you.

Toyota: Guess what, Kia? I hear there's a monster in town! And it...

Toyota! Stop scaring your sister.

Toyota: But I did! Grandma told me.

We really need to get this whole story straightened out.

Nice hairstyle choice.

Never thought you'd turn out to be such a good dad, London.

London: I didn't either.

I think someone missed you, Aracely.

Aracely: How did you get outside all by yourself?

Nice job, Aracely.

Aracely: Thanks.

It's so strange how neither of your kids got your blue skin or London's mom's freckles.

Aracely: I know. I've always heard that odd skin colors are supposed to show up in kids.

Happy birthday dear Kia...again...

Well, we're going to have to fix your hair again. But that can wait until next week.

And as Kia here is illustrating, this brings us to the end of another week. And now, it's time to head over to Sim State for the college graduation ceremony.

A Message From The Mysterious Voice: I'm really puzzled about how the genetics are working for this family. London has both a normal CAS sim parent and a CAS parent with a custom skintone. Aracely is a CAS with a custom skin tone, I'm assuming. So their kids should ether be blue, or freckled. But both are just plain light-skinned, which I didn't think was even in there anywhere.

Aracely's parent had a light skin tone so she should be custom/light in genetics. Dude she's with has light/light so each time there's a 50% chance of light skin and custom...

It's frustrating when you want one skin tone and get another

Aracely sure does make for nice looking kids. Hurray for Kia!!!
