1.7 Failing in Earnest

Alright, so I think I will breed Fruity. I want his genetics to last! Perhaps we’ll meet his mate during this chapter? ;D

Screenshot-40Speaking of Fruity, look, he’s playing with Billy! How sweet! I checked the que and this interaction is called ‘tackle’. I’ve never heard of that one before?

Screenshot-41WHOA WHOA. That little itty bitty dog knocked Billy on his butt! Calm yourself Fruity!

Screenshot-43Also, this interaction is negative apparently.  Who would’ve known?


Oh and I think the bedtime wars are finally over. Joa is finally sleeping in her bed. No I haven’t re-done over her and Sali’s room yet. I just haven’t gotten to it. I’ve actually only done bedrooms so far. I know I’m terrible. I should just do it all at once but I get really bored with decorating. If I don’t do it slowly, I’ll half-ass it.

Screenshot-45Apparently they’re not as over as I think. *sighs* (-5)

Screenshot-46Well anyway, I have Tobi slaving away to fix the dishwasher finally. I know you can all see the cake there and of course that means a birthday after the dishwasher is fixed! Can you guess whose?

Screenshot-47That’s right! It’s Cheri’s! No more burritos! I love how Nymeria has walked pretty much all her children up to the cake! Hehe, its so cute.

Screenshot-49 Screenshot-50Sparkle poof! Aw, she looks like her mum and she has her grandfather’s hair color! Its so cook to see their genetics at work. Her favorite color is hot pink but I forgot to check  before editing her outfit so she’s wearing blue since she looks so like Nymeria.

Screenshot-51Hey Joa, what’s up.

Joa: I’m feeling sleeping again.

Please don’t.

Screenshot-52Meanwhile, Sali is swimming! I forgot it was summer already again. I don’t really pay much mind to the seasons truthfully.

Screenshot-53Since Cheri is the last baby and Tobi rolled a wish to teach her to talk, I have him sitting down with her in the kitchen. The faster she learns her skills, the better. Tobi is ready to finally start his career.

Screenshot-54BILLY. BILLY YOU MONSTER (-5)

Screenshot-55A few minutes later, his mother is reading him a book. Is that a handiness book? Well that’s a good idea. You’re a genius Nymeria.

Screenshot-56In other news, Joa is climbing into bed. That’s one offender down. Now if only Billy would get into bed as well.

Screenshot-57Oh no, Sali don’t join their ranks.

Sali: Actually, I’m just to converse with this dog.

And how well is that going over?

Screenshot-58BILLY. (-5)

I hate this kid. I hate him so much.

Screenshot-59Billy: So mother, since I making the Creator angry, I think you should read me to sleep.

Nymeria: You can just ignore her really, I do.

Screenshot-60And the wars begin again, but the new fighter in the arena is Sali. Joa is actually asleep I believe.

Screenshot-61Lucky Dizzy comes about and brings Joa to her room to read her to sleep. Thank you Dizzy.

Screenshot-63Aw, that’s cute. Sali actually goes to sleep in her grandmother’s bed. That’s really adorable haha.

Screenshot-64Meanwhile Nymeria takes care of Billy. Thank you Nymeria.

Screenshot-66BUT BILLY DECIDES TO FAIL ON HIS WAY TO HIS ROOM. (-5) and he’s stinky to boot. Take a shower, child!

Screenshot-68The next day, we’re working on getting Cheri trained so she can age up well. I don’t know why we bother really. When she ages up, she’ll be a child and I’ll want to DESTROY her.

Screenshot-69I have Tobi pop her in the walker so he doesn’t have to worry about her. She looks the most like her mother than the other kids if you ask me. I mean in the face. She surely has those Maloney genes.

Screenshot-70And since Tobi has so much more time, it’s time to get back to painting. He’s only like level 4 and he’ll be painting the next heir portraits so he needs to get to what? Level 7?

Screenshot-71What is even going on here?

Dizzy and Sali are talking outside while it rains, Fruity dug a hole in the yard while he imagines being brushed. What? I’m really confused on what I should be feeling in this picture.

Screenshot-72Well, I guess Sali was asking grandma Dizzy to read her a bedtime story. They both look really excited. That’s cute.

Screenshot-73Joa: I command thee plates, disappear! Never return to this place!

That is not how you wash dishes honey.

Screenshot-74Cheri still need alot of potty training. She’s getting there though.

Screenshot-75In his picture, Joa is ‘examining’ Gerard’s urn. I have no idea. She just stood down here and stared at it for a long, long time. I guess she knows that one day she may be trapped down here as well if she becomes the Chosen.


Screenshot-77Nymeria is now cornered in the wars. Billy, you better not be a monster.

Screenshot-79Oh good llamas. Nymeria may be joining them all on the floor. She’s your mother! Have mercy!

Screenshot-80Nymeria never gets the chance because BILLY THAT MONSTER CHILD faints before his sister or mother gets a chance (-5)

Screenshot-81Nymeria: Why is this child laying on the floor?

Joa: I have no idea. Weirdo.

Screenshot-82Joa has enough of the wars and retreats. Gerard comes out to visit and takes over the TV. Nymeria is not impressed by her father-in-law.

Screenshot-84Joa…This is what Billy does, NOT WHAT YOU ARE TO DO. (-5)

Screenshot-85Meanwhile, Billy went to sleep…at 5:30 in the morning. He had to get up shortly after and go to school. These children, I SWEAR.

Screenshot-86Joa doesn’t go to school, dropping her grade down to a D. She sleeps on a bench across from the school most of the day.

Screenshot-87Sali sits outside the school, doing her homework instead of attending. Her grade is borderline failing. These children…

Screenshot-88Eventually they all return home and corner grandma Dizzy. Sorry Dizz, this is your problem.

Screenshot-89Hi Tobi, you haven’t been around much in this chapter.

Tobi: I’ve been good.

You have. Thank you. Everyone else is driving me insane.

Screenshot-90Dizzy reads Billy to sleep. Hopefully this time he actually sleeps for once.

Screenshot-91Instead of sleeping, Joa begins eating. In this case, it’s okay. She was nearly starving.

Screenshot-93OH MY PLUMBOB TOBI. That is creepy. Sell that shite.

Screenshot-94Meanwhile, Tobi is now sleeping in grandma’s bed now haha. Sorry, that’s still adorable.

Screenshot-95And…Joa sleeps on the floor. You’re becoming as bad as Billy (-5)

Screenshot-96Nymeria in her awful work clothes. You earned a promotion today, didn’t you Nymeria?

Nymeria: MY FIRST 😀

Yes, yes, good job.


Screenshot-99Okay now everyone but Nymeria get out. Tobi is coming to bed.

Screenshot-101Except he can’t because Joa is sitting on his bed. Move it child! I have Tobi shoo her.

Screenshot-102She scoots to her own bed while Tobi snuggles with his wife. That’s right Joa! Away with you!

Screenshot-104Not that she actually sleeps…but you know I tried.

Screenshot-106And Tobi is now nearly level 6 of his painting skill. Almost there. I’ll probably shoot for him mastering it like his mother did.

Screenshot-107But one more image before we leave! Meet Starfruit! She’s a puppy now but when she gets bigger she’ll certainly be the mother of Fruit Salad’s puppies! She’s pretty cute don’t you guys think? She’s also a mutt and she’s got a couple days of being a puppy before she becomes an adult. Hehe, I can’t wait to see her own puppies!

And time for the score.

  1. Aww I love Starfruit! I can’t believe Billy just cost you so many points! That “bedtime story” interaction drives me absolutely bonkers as well. It makes me really hate this children too. Thank God it’s only 7 days long!


    • She hasn’t grown up in my game yet but I can’t wait to see what she looks like! Billy is really getting on my nerves but I still love the kids. I think I have my childhood stage set to 8 days actually…and teen set to 16….I was trying to give them more time to get their grades up haha


  2. Haha, I can definitely see the Maloney genes in Cheri. Is it sad that I can recognise Abby’s nose and eye shape in a toddler? Maybe I’ve been playing with her for too long.

    LMAO, these kids are so evil. Doing homework outside school will not help if you don’t attend school to hand it in! Idiot sims…


    • No of course not! How many babies have you had with Abby? It’d be weird if you didn’t. I was still thrilled to see the Maloney genes in Cheri though! I was afraid they wouldn’t show up in the Dewdrop children!

      Yeah, everyone is very nearly failing. Sali is the worst though, she is right on the border of failing. There’s not much I can do about it though. Perhaps Tobi will help her with her homework.
