Halpert 6: Round 10

Last round, Zoe and Zyrtec continued to raise their son, Tiger, from a toddler to a child. Zoe also gave birth to a second son, Panther, who had grown to a toddler by the end of the week, and a baby girl named Cheetah. Meanwhile, Zyrtec adopted a puppy named Timber and continued to chase his dream of having 50 Dream Dates.

Huh...I guess I never got Zyrtec a job.

Hi, Zoe...

Zoe: Is that all you have to say?

What did I forget now?

Zoe: You skipped us again.

No I didn't....

Zoe: Yes you did. Last time you came here before the Rosada's house.

Oh, no...that's the second time on this street. Sorry, Zoe. I swear when this round is done I'm writing numbers on the map...

Enjoying your new little brother?

Tiger: He's more fun now that he's big enough to play with.

Well, it looks like he's getting a little bigger. Happy birthday, dear Panther...

...And Cheetah...

Wow, and she even has a nice hairstyle...wait, where did Panther go?

Panther! You can't eat the cake until I get a picture of you! Actually, I never noticed this before but...that's a huge slice of cake! No wonder kids never sleep the night of their birthday.

So I'm guessing the dating thing is on hold for right now?

Zyrtec: Well, we can usually squeeze one in between when I get home and when Zoe goes to work.

Yeah, I guess you working days and her working nights makes that hard.

Zyrtec: Yeah, it works out with the kids, though.

Panther: Today's your birthday, Timber!

It is?

Ah, so it is. At least he's more normal looking than Luna next door.

Looks like it's not just the dog's birthday. Happy birthday, dear Tiger...

Not bad, though I don't love the shorts. Have you chosen an aspiration yet?

Tiger: I want a life of romance!

Ugh...if I didn't know better I'd swear they saved it for the end of each class...

Congrats, Zoe!

Zoe: Thanks! I'm just glad I get a new outfit now.

Yeah, me too.

Um, Panther? It's 9:15...why are you still here?

Panther: I already went to school yesterday. I don't want to go again.

Um, hate to disappoint you, but you kind of have to go every day.

Panther: Well, too bad. The bus already left.

Fortunately, you guys have a car.

Zoe: You're just lucky I'm home during the day. You would have been in big trouble if your father and I were both gone.

Um, Zoe? Who's watching Cheetah?

Zoe: I had to call a nanny...which means Panther's going to be even later since we had to wait for her to show up.

Happy birthday, dear Cheetah...

Man, Zyrtec's genes are strong...

Um, care to explain?

Zoe: Well, it's not like we planned this, but when you go on as many dates as Zyrtec and I really is the best way to get to dream date, you know?

Yeah, I know. I'm getting kind of sick of this 50 Dream Date want producing all these unplanned children.

Oh, even better. I guess Tiger's going to be doing a lot of gardening...or maybe he can just go to the community lot where Sea Beesly has her wishing well...

Zoe: So, you're not angry?

Zyrtec: No! Why would I be angry? A bit surprised, sure...

Cheetah: Good doggy! 

Glad to see somebody's paying attention to the dog.

Um...Zyrtec? Any reason you're reading to Panther on the front lawn?

Zyrtec: Because it's a beautiful day!

So are you two ready for the new baby?

Panther: Yeah. I hope it's a boy.

Cheetah: Me too.

Panther: Why?

Cheetah: I don't want to have to share my room.

Zyrtec: How was your day here?

Zoe: I have the worst headache...this pregnancy better end soon.

I don't think a headache is the worst of Zoe's problems anymore. It's baby time!

No twin genes here...

And I see another boy! Looks like Cheetah got her wish!

Zoe: Let's call him Lion!

So you don't mind having the baby in your room, Tiger?

Tiger: Why would I? I'm going to college soon, anyway.

Oh, right...speaking of that...

Tiger, meet Centi.

Glad to see you approve. Let the battle of the skin tones begin...

Nice job with the scholarships too, Tiger

Tiger: Thanks!

And now it's time for me to be on my way. I'll see Tiger at graduation, and everybody else next round!

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: Ahh, Risky Woohoo strikes again. I really was not planning to have these guys have another child. Zyrtec and Zoe are closer to the 50 Dream Dates than any other couple, though. And yes, I did screw up the order of the houses from last round. For some reason once the houses turn the corner onto the next street, I loose all track of who to go to first. Next round I'm taking a screenshot of the neighborhood and putting numbers in...

Rosada 1: Round 10

Last round, Aquamarine Rosada came to the realization that hers was not the only house that the mysterious voice visited. Meanwhile, both her and her sister Brigid's first sons, Cobalt and Eton, grew from toddlers to children. By the end of the week, Aquamarine had given birth to a daughter, Cyan, as well.

Wow, Oak...that sure is an...interesting outfit.

Oak: I know...I can't seem to find the one I was wearing before.

Odd seeing as how I never actually see your clothes anywhere but on you...

Well, at least it's easier to tell which kid belongs to which couple in this house. Everybody's color coded.

Brigid: I know. Luckily it doesn't seem to make a difference for the boys at school, pink or blue. 

Nice job, Aquamarine!

Aquamarine: Thanks! Glad you weren't too busy with the other houses to come and check in...

Oh, not this again...

Glad to see Luna's still...Luna.

Happy birthday, dear Cyan...

Wow...hi there, Willow number 2...

Cyan: Huh? I'm not Willow...

Could have fooled me...

Brigid: Can you believe Cyan's going to school already?

Oak: I know...pretty soon they'll all be out of the house.

Brigid: What would you think about having another...

Oak: Dog? We could do that...Luna does seem to be getting a little lonely.

Brigid: Not exactly where I was going... 

Eton: How am I supposed to go to bed if she's there?

You and Luna do have a very strange relationship, don't you?

Cyan: Hey! You can't sleep in my bed just because the dog's in yours.

Eton: Aww, come on. There's monsters under it, you know.

Cyan: No there aren't...are there, mysterious voice?

No...not in this town at least.

Wow, good week for you.

Aquamarine: Yeah, without a toddler around anymore I have a lot more time to work on skills.

Oh, hi Almond. You sure have been making the rounds lately...

Happy birthday, dear Colbalt...

Not bad. Have you chosen an aspiration yet?

Colbalt: I want a life of romance!

(sigh) Are you sure?

Colbalt: Yup.

Ok...I guess it has been awhile.

Ok, Eton's turn...happy birthday, dear Eton...

Wow, two decent outfits. What about your aspiration?

Eton: I want a lot of friends!

Glad you didn't take after your cousin...

Cyan: This is too hard!

Don't you do enough of this at work, Aquamarine?

Aquamarine: Compared to the college stuff this is a piece of cake.

Cyan: For you, maybe!

Ok, again, we don't have enough time for the gypsy. Cobalt, meet Valley.

And luckily he's got an easy lifetime want.

Colbalt: You can't beat me...I'm a chess master.

Aquamarine: Why don't you play with Eton?

Because Eton is getting acquainted with Elmyra here.

Eton: Has anyone ever told you you look just like that Valley chick my brother's dating?

Elmyra: All the time...

Cyan: I like your dress!

Broccoli: Thanks!

Looks like Cyan's making her share of friends.

And Colbalt and Valley seem to be getting along...

Eton's got an easy lifetime want too...

And everything seems to be according to plan.

Or was, at least...How do you plan to explain this to Oak?

Brigid: What's to explain?

Well, you guys weren't exactly trying...

Brigid: Babies can happen even when you don't try...

Let's go pro-control...


Man, you're having an awesome week.

Aquamarine: I know!

And Cyan's work is paying off too, I see...

Cyan: Mommy said if I got an A+ I'd get a special present...

Oh, boy...another immortal womrat.

Cyan: He's so cute!

He sure is...say...what's that I hear beeping?

Well, I guess you can't win them all...

Oh, right...Pine lives here. I could have sworn he met his lifetime want or was at least in the right track...I guess not.

Baby time!

Brigid: It's a boy!

Another bright pink boy! What's his name?

Brigid: We're calling him Navy.

Aquamarine: So how did Oak take the news?

Brigid: Well, he's at work. But I'm sure he'll be thrilled when he gets home.

Well that sure came quickly. Happy birthday, dear Navy...

And he even gets a nice hairstyle!

Brigid: Ugh...Luna, get out of the way.

Maybe she's trying to make sure he has a puffy place to fall...

Oops. Sorry, Colbalt. I thought you were your dad.'s still here, isn't he?

Colbalt: Yeah, he's just been laying low this week. 

Oh, good. Anyway, nice job with the scholarships.

You too, Eton. And now it's time for me to be on my way. Cobalt and Eton, I'll see you at graduation. Everybody else, I'll see you next round. 

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: So, first of all, I did not intend to ignore Pine and Oak for most of the week. Most of the events happened around the two Rosada sisters and the kids. I discovered halfway through the week that not only was Pine not in perms-platinum but wasn't even in the correct career track to get there; I don't know if I just forgot to get him in or if the game glitched. And Brigid's lifetime want is to have 3 children graduate college, so Oak's going to have to have at least one more surprise. On another note, The Mac version of TS4 has been announced as releasing in February! I've tracked down Sims 4 Prosperity rules, but I'm not sure I'm going to start one right away.
