Beesly 10: Round 10

Last round, risky woohoo visited the Beesly family when Phoebe became pregnant for the second time with twins Cheeto and Pretzel. Meanwhile, older daughter Popcorn grew to a teenager and prepared for college.

Hi, guys.

Phoebe: Hi, mysterious voice.

Why do I hear crying?

Arbor: Oh, the twins have been out of sorts lately.

Yeah, I would say so! What happened that could make a toddler that upset?

Cheeto's just as bad...

Did something happen I should know about?

Arbor: Not around here. Although, Phoebe's mom died not too long ago. It really took a toll on her whole family.

Did these two even meet Madison?

Arbor: No. But maybe they're just reacting to everyone else's stress?

Well, whatever the reason, you best get them happier quick. They have both have a birthday coming up.

Fortunately it's pretty easy to cheer up a toddler...although, I'd like to remind you that you do have two of them.

Phoebe: Arbor's in the other room with Cheeto.

Well, he certainly seems happy enough. Happy birthday, dear Cheeto...

And those Beesly cheekbones are going strong...

Happy birthday, dear Pretzel...

And I see a lot of Phoebe in Pretzel, too.

So how did the first day of school go?

Pretzel: It went ok. I think Cheeto did better than me, though.

Oh, I'm sure you're just imagining...

Or maybe not. An A+ on your second day...nice work, Cheeto.

Um, why are you getting a bird?

Arbor: The kids both wanted a pet, but we can't really keep up with a dog or cat.

Why didn't you just send Phoebe to her childhood home and pick up the immortal womrat?

And I see the love for the gamer career reward has been passed down.

Um, let's go with aliens.


See, I told you you'd catch up.

Pretzel: ...No you didn't.

Huh....seems as though I would have...

Cheeto: Ow! You got me!

Shouldn't you guys be taking care of Rio?

Pretzel: I already fed him when we got home.

Did you close the cage?

I guess that would be a no. Again, I'd like to cast my vote for the womrat...

Ok, let's try this again...Bixby Rabbit...

There we go. That's what's supposed to happen.

Phoebe: Listen, we've talked about this. You don't need to come on my day off.

Nanny: I'm tracking your husband's schedule. If you didn't want me here on your days off than you should have picked up the phone. Now where's my money?

Phoebe: You haven't done anything! You didn't even drive here. You got dropped off in a van!

Pretzel: Mom, I found a penguin!

Phoebe: That's nice, dear.

Pretzel: Can we keep him?

Why don't you two just worry about the bird you already have?

Um, Pretzel? It's the middle of winter. Do you really want to be sleeping in shorts?

Pretzel: But it's warm in the house!

It's a good thing these guys don't have a heating bill...

Cheeto: Mom, can we go on vacation?

Phoebe: Maybe when you two are a little older.

Although it looks like it's Mom and Dad who are getting a little older. Happy birthday, dear Phoebe...

...and Arbor...

Ok well you're going to need a new outfit...

Yours isn't as terrible...

Arbor: Hey, I want new clothes too.

Ok, ok...everybody gets new clothes. But next week. Right now it's time for me to be on my way. I'll see everybody next round.

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: Man, I had no idea that Madison Beesly was so important to the emotional well being of this town! The twins must have had a general fear of a relative dying, because they never even met their grandmother. Beyond that, this was a pretty uneventful lot.

Vega 3: Round 10

Last round, Temple Vega continued to chase her dream of marrying off six children. Eldest child Meter grew to a teenager and prepared for college while second in line Centi grew to a child. By the end of the week, numbers three and four Milli and Inch had joined the family as well.

Ok, and apparently at some point they adopted a cat. Hm, looks like a Bengal...

When did you get a cat?

Temple: Oh, awhile back. I'm not sure, exactly.

You know, I will let you guys get pets while I'm here. You don't need to sneak them in.

Uh-oh, could number 5 be on the way?

Temple: I hope so. I'd hate to think this is just the stomach flu.

Temple: You're such a pretty cat!

Say, where's River?

Temple: He's in the office. We just put in a treadmill...

I see. I didn't think you needed body skill anymore.

River: Oh, it's not for the skill points. I've just been putting on some weight lately.

It's always interesting to see who shows up at this house, since Milli lives here. 

Congratulations, Temple.

Temple: Thanks. 

Centi: Come on, Mom! It's almost time!

Time for what?

Oh, I see. Happy birthday, dear Centi...

...and Inch...

Hmm, not bad, though I'm not wild about the jeans.

And Inch looks just like Meter.

Now, about an aspiration for Centi...

Centi: I want a lot of money.

Ok, do-able. 

River: Come on, can do it...

So how's the morning sickness?

Temple: Ugh, it's still happening.

Still? But it's been at least a day and a half.

Temple: I know. Things should be moving along faster than this.

Temple: I think I might be having another baby. 

River: Might be?

Temple: Well, I'm getting sick every morning, and I have to use the bathroom every hour. But I'm not getting any bigger. I don't know what's going on.

River: Maybe you should go see a doctor.

Temple: River, you are a doctor.

River: Oh, right...

Milli: I got an A+!

Great job! Why don't you go tell your mom.

Milli: Mommy...are you ok?

Man, Temple's really not doing well.

Um, let's chill the school...


Wait, so you are pregnant.

Temple: River asked around at work, and they gave me a few tests. I definitely am pregnant. They're still not sure why I'm not progressing, though.

Hmm...maybe you need a little emergency intervention.

Temple: What do you mean?

Just do me a favor and have everybody pack up one room of furniture. I'll take care of the rest.

Yup, just as I thought...

Care to introduce me to your new sister?

Centi: This is Giga.

Cute. And where's the other twin?

Centi: Dad's got her.

Ah, two girls. And who's this?

River: Meet Tera.

Wow, that's almost a normal name.

Centi: I still don't see how re-building our house helped your pregnancy.

Temple: I don't either, but I'm just so happy our girls were born safely.

And it looks like Centi wants to follow in her dad's medical footsteps.

So she takes a job in the business field...that makes sense.

I guess your performance improved once your health was better.

Temple: It sure did.

Time for the first birthday in the new house! Happy birthday, dear Inch...

Again, he looks just like Meter.

Ok, I've learned now. Let's meet the intern.

Phew. Not a huge bonus but still better than the alternative.

Let's go with the cappuccino...


Doesn't seem to have affected you that much, though.

Centi: No.

Man, that flew by. Happy birthday, dear Giga...

...and Tera...

And it looks like Giga will be Centi number two...

And someone finally got River's brown hair!

Nice job!

Centi: Thanks.

Milli: Hi, Tera!

Good to see you bonding with your siblings.

Oh, good. The cat's still here. We haven't seen too much of her.

Inch: I got an A+!

Great job!


Temple: Thanks.

So everything's ok now?

Temple: Yes, it is. I've got my six kids, I can relax now.

That's good, because it looks like elderhood is right around the corner. Happy birthday, dear River...

...and Milli...

Not bad...

And just like Centi you've grown into your cheekbones nicely. How about your aspiration?

Milli: I want a lot of friends.

Um...ok, done. You've already gotten off the school bus with every child in town.

I guess we're going to have to wait to see Milli's lifetime want, though. Nice job with the scholarships, Centi.

Centi: Thanks.

I'll see you at graduation, everyone else I'll see next round!

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: Man, this lot was frustrating. First of all, you may have noticed that I mistakingly labeled Temple as Venice for the first few pictures. In my defense, Venice lives next door to these guys. Then Temple's pregnancy got glitchy and wouldn't progress. (Ironically,  this same glitch happened to River's mom Abigail when she was pregnant with her twins Bay and Sea, also in an attempt to marry off six kids. Maybe this glitch is genetic...). When I went to move them back onto the new lot, the game loaded Temple as holding Inch. The game doesn't really know what to do when a Sim holding a toddler instantly goes into labor with twins, so one of the twins kept disappearing right after the birth. Thankfully, reloading the lot fixed that. Needless to say, I was relieved to be able to finish the lot.
