1.6 The Bedtime Wars

Let’s get right into the swing of things.

Screenshot-73Joa: FEED MEH.

Screenshot-74Dizzy: I think I’ll just stare at you instead.

Of course you will Dizzy.

Screenshot-75Don’t worry, Daddy is here!

Tobi: Might as well be a single father, living alone…

Its not that bad!

Screenshot-76Ew, that’s gross Billy. He’s a snob by the way, you’d never know it.

Jerry: Don’t I have a sexy butt?

Billy: I wouldn’t know…I’m like ten.

Screenshot-77Nymeria: This bathroom is gross.

Heavily pregnant Nymeria disapproves of the cleanliness of the house. Too bad that Tobi is too busy with twins to clean it now.

Screenshot-79Dizzy: Taking care of these kids makes me tired.

What do you mean taking care of them? You just put them in their crib, they wanna be there or not.

Screenshot-81And so it begins. I hate children for this reason alone. Bed time stories are the worst.

Screenshot-82It does look cute though. Look at that family bonding!

Screenshot-83Billy: I’m still horribly tired. Can I have another?

Nymeria: No.


Tobi is finishing up teaching Joa to walk. She mostly taught herself but I Sali in it so she can learn while Tobi finishes up here.

Screenshot-85Look how cute Sali is. Oh look and its Fruity! I love Fruity’s tail. I’ve really grown attached to the little weirdo.

Screenshot-88And Joa can walk and talk! I believe all that is left is potty training. I believe Sali just needs to finish learning to walk and potty.

Screenshot-89Oh what’s this? Nymeria is in labor? That’s awesome.

Nymeria: Something is trying to crawl its way out of me! Help!


Screenshot-90Come on Sali! Almost there! You must learn to potty!

Screenshot-91While I root for Sali, Nymeria births another girl. This is Cherimoya, Cheri for short. Her traits are Genius and Insane.

IMG_1745This is what a Cherimoya really looks like. Kinda weird. Huh.

Screenshot-93Billy senses that someone is free…that someone can…read.

Screenshot-94Well not quite. Nymeria decides she loves her newest baby and feeds her before putting her down to bed. How sweet!

Screenshot-95Billy: Mother, I know you’ve read six different stories to me over the past three hours, but I demand a seventh.

Nymeria: Sounds reasonable.

Screenshot-96Argh, let’s just skip ahead! Time for the twins’ birthday! I’ll be so happy when they’re children!

Screenshot-97 Screenshot-98Shoot, missed Tobi letting Joa blow out her candles! But still! Cute!

Screenshot-99 Screenshot-100Sali goes first. She gains Party Animal.

Screenshot-101Nymeria is so excited that her toddlers are aging up that she gets hungry for faces. Actually I checked the que and she was gunning for a risky woohoo. Nope! Nipped that in the butt!

Screenshot-103 Screenshot-104Joa goes next and she ends up with the easily impressed trait. What a pair these twins are!

ScreenshotSo anyway, with the party over, Sali begins to feed, the others stand blankly around and Joa…magically has homework? What? She hasn’t even been to school yet!

Joa: I’m dedicated.

Screenshot-2Sali….Sali….you just turned into a child.

Sali: I already hate everything.

Screenshot-3Sali: So much so, I wet myself and shove myself into the table.

You monster. (-5)

Screenshot-4Dizzy: I’m not sure if I want to choke the child or hug her.

Its not your floor she messed up.


Sali: You’re a freak.

Oh my gosh, these sims. I’m going to go crazy by the end of the generation.

Screenshot-8So anyway, I’m finally starting to redecorate the house, room by room. I have a little bit more money now. This is Dizzy’s room, decorated in purple, red and pink. I like dark wood if you can’t tell haha.

Screenshot-9Nymeria: Why does this room stink?

Billy: Because of my pet rock.

Nymeria: Well give him a bath, good grief.

Screenshot-10Also, Fruity has taken to Joa. It’s cute. They play chase alot!

Screenshot-12I noticed Sali playing games by herself so I sent Tobi to play games with her! Bonding time!

Sali: This game would be better if the players were fish.

Screenshot-13Nymeria wanted to take Sali’s spot when she went to bed but Sali scooted over on the couch, blocking her from sitting down. That’s not nice Sali!

Screenshot-14First child to preside over the royal court is Billy!

Screenshot-15And then Nymeria decides to play games on her own.


Sure, okay.

Screenshot-16Also, I redecorated Tobi and Nymeria’s rooms in purples and blues. Their favorites go well together.

Screenshot-17Nymeria: I’m tired, but I’m gonna pluck some mad beats from this bass before I go.

Uh….alright then.

Screenshot-18Joa: We will go to war tonight, Jerry! WAR I TELL YOU!

Jerry: That’s cool but check out my sexy butt.

Still a child, Jerry.

Screenshot-19Joa: Grandma, I’m about to fall over, read me at story?

Dizzy: Sounds fair enough.

Screenshot-21A challenger approaches…

Billy: While I respect your decision, I have a medical reason that I care not to explain to why I need a bed time story more than my sister.

Dizzy: Uh-huh…I understand.

Screenshot-22Joa: No, no, grandmother, I need it more.

Billy: Like the sweet tunes of death you do!



Screenshot-29Finally, she seems to have made her decision. Joa hums a happy melody until…

Screenshot-30Joa: I need to reask because I forgot what we were doing.

Dizzy: Alright…Did you ever notice how pretty and empty our house is?

Screenshot-31JOA! This is the result of the Bedtime Wars. (-5)

Screenshot-32Meanwhile, Sali nerds out. She’s already slept and woken up while the other two were at war.

Screenshot-34Joa finally gets the idea to go to bed on her own.

Screenshot-35And Billy breaks the dishwasher.

Billy: It was out of spite.


Screenshot-36Sali is still a good girl and plays some video games. I don’t think anyone but Gerard’s ghost as touched these.

Screenshot-37Part two of the wars…

Screenshot-38 Screenshot-39But this time we have a victor. Look how smug she looks. I could just slap her…

Anyway, that’s enough for this chapter! I’ll see you all next time!

Self Wetting (-5): -5×5 = -25
Each Sim Failing School (-5): 0
For every game induced visit from a police officer, firefighter, or baby sitter (-5): 0
Passing out (-5): -5×2 = -10
Accidental Deaths(-10): 0
Social Worker Visits (-15): 0

Every Birth (+5): 5×11 = 55
Each Sim that gets on the honor roll (+5): 5×2= 10
Having a Painting of the Torch Holder in the house (+5): 5×2 = 10
Randomizing every LTW choice and trait for a whole generation of children (+10): 10×1= 10
Not using spare Happiness points for a generation (+10):10×1= 10
Every 100,000 dollars (+20): 20×1 = 20
Every Sim that completes a LTW (+40): 40×2 = 80

Total: 160 Points

Due to some math issues, I adjusted my points. I believe they’re right now. Sigh, I figured I could do basic math but I guess I can’t…

  1. Oh wow. So many fails. Bedtime story wars are the absolute worst and drive me crazy. Everyone ends up failing because they can last so long. The twins both aged up so adorable though and Fruit Salad is growing on me as well. I never noticed the puff on the end of his tail. It makes him pretty cute and unique.


    • The bedtime wars KILL me. It makes me hate the children. I like the toddlers, I like the teens, but the children are the worst! But, yes, Fruit Salad is certainly growing on me as well. I really think I will breed him, if only because I’d like to see if I can keep his genetics going the whole ten generations as well.

  2. OMG, Bedtime Story war is the worst. This is the reason I have not yet played an ISBI, it would drive me to distraction! Have you thought about getting a mod? I have Twoftmama’s Less Autonomous Read to Sleep, and it works a treat. Doesn’t fully take away the autonomy, just makes them less likely to ask. You could also have Tobi tell the kids to “Go to Bed”, that often works – though only at night when they’re supposed to be sleeping.

    Joa and Sali are cuties, bedtime story wars aside. Can’t wait to see what Cheri looks like…and by that I mean I’m going to read the next chapter now.


    • I’ve seen that mod but I never downloaded. I think it does make it interesting to struggle with the children, even if it is killing my points in the end ;o; Tobi is usually too busy to even look at the children. Everything keeps breaking in the house, though he almost has handiness high enough he can start making things unbreakable! Thank goodness for that!
