Mendoza 2: Round 8

We did it! We've reached the last old house of round 8! Last round, twins Nessarose and Glinda Mendoza moved in together after completing college. By doing so, brothers Harlem and Bronx Levinson also ended up moving in together. And the two couples instantly began living parallel lives, right down to the births of their daughters, Emerald and Fern.

(clears throat)

Harlem: Hi, mysterious voice. Just um...kissing Nessarose goodbye before work?

Nice try, Harlem, but she's a professional party guest. She won't be working until Friday night.

And this is how you've been spending your days?

Harlem: I want to earn $100,000 any way I can.

And was a fire part of that plan?

Harlem: No!

At least someone tried to take the toddlers outside, as evidenced by the snowsuit.

Taking up...gardening?

Harlem: I thought I'd be able to sell them off, but it turns out I can only put them around the house.

Well, you can sell them off but the profits don't count towards your $100,000.

Baby number 2 on the way. Which should mean...

Yup, right on cue.

Looks like there's a lot to celebrate in this house! Happy birthday, dear Fern...

and Emerald...

One lovely young lady...

Two lovely young ladies. I like that everything happens in double in this house.

Happy first day of school, girls!

Emerald: Do you think we'll be in the same class?

I don't see why you wouldn't be.

Fern: I hope the teacher doesn't think we're twins.

Don't be too surprised if she does. I even forget that you two are cousins.

Speaking's baby time!

Just one more...


Glinda: It's a girl! Meet baby Kelly!


Another brunette...

How was school, girls?

Fern: Really boring. We're playing with each other while my mom's busy with the baby.

Emerald: I hope I get a sister too.

Looks like we get to find out! It's baby time number 2!

One more...


Nessarose: It's a girl! Meet Jade!

Wow, there have been a lot of girls born recently.

Ugh, these things come at the worst times. Revert to fewer companies...

Nice. I wish Harlem could earn that much at one time.

And we've got a redhead!

Nessarose: I made you some chili.

Glinda: So Nessa, I wanted to talk to you about something...after the older girls move out, I'm going to have to have another baby to have 3 kids to graduate from college. I just want you to know you don't have to have one too...

Nessarose: What are you talking about? We've got 4 kids now.

Glinda: No, have two kids and I have two kids. I want to graduate 3 of my own kids from college.

Nessarose: Well, I don't see what the difference is. We're both just as involved with raising them.

Trust me, Nessarose, I'm on your side with this one but my um...supervisors don't quite see it that way.

Well, I don't think there's going to be any confusion over whose daughter Jade is with that red hair.

Harlem: I know. I'm glad it got passed on. Red hair is kind of a rarity in this town.

Emerald: I got an A+!!!

(holds applause for other...cousin)

Fern: I got an A+ too!

Great job, both of you!

Looks like another birthday! Happy birthday dear Jade...

and Kelly...but isn't she Bronx and Glinda's?

Harlem: They're both sleeping.

One adorable new toddler...

Two adorable new toddlers! And she even grew into a nice hairstyle that matches her mom! Now I'll be able to tell who's kid she is.


Nice job!

And let the teaching begin!

Glinda: Come on, Kelly. You can do it...

Love the new hairstyle on Jade, by the way.

(sigh) Everybody's gotten one except the one person who really needs the big bonus. Bixby Rabbit...

I just know I'm going to get burned on that one someday, but I'm glad it worked out for Glinda.

Fern: Hi, Jade!

Are you two playing nice?

Fern: Yes.

Fern: Mommy, I was really nice to the babies today!

Glinda: Good job, Fern!

Um...hi Madrid. Dropped in to babysit?

Madrid: Well, I was in the neighborhood and thought I'd stop by. And she looked a little lonely.

Well, as fun as this week has been I think it's time for me to make my exit now. It's almost graduation time!

Fern: Mommy, do you think I'll be able to go to college? I'm not that good at math...

Don't worry, Fern. Everybody goes to college in this town. But that won't happen for you until next week.

Glinda: And then you and I can start on that third baby...

Ok, I'm out of here! I'll see you all next round!

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: We did it! We made it through all of the pre-existing houses for round 8! Now it's time to grab your cameras and balloons and head over to Sim State for the graduation ceremony!
