0.2 Growing Up



Last time, Tucker topped his career, dealt with an earthquake and saved lives.  Keely had her two pregnancies, which resulted in three children.  The babysitter sucked ass and he may or may not have had a brush with death as a warning.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-43-04-70

Tucker is still trying to teach Amalia to talk.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-44-24-34

To the detriment of poor hungry Ace.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-45-26-46

Ace wasn’t the only one starving.
Unseen child:  I can’t peg!

TS3 2016-12-16 04-47-12-10

A dad’s job is never done.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-47-37-99

Especially when the mom isn’t a mom.


TS3 2016-12-16 04-55-27-41

The days and hours are starting to run together.  Weren’t you hungry like two shots ago?
Keely:  That was yesterday, loser.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-55-52-21

Amalia:  FEED ME!

TS3 2016-12-16 04-56-43-23

Tucker had a horrible day getting around with 0 horsepower, so he is spending some time upgrading that.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-56-57-70

TS3 2016-12-16 04-57-05-01

Another Atta Boy from a happy customer and another service award.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-57-33-08

Still trying to get Amalia to talk.

TS3 2016-12-16 04-57-59-78

Amalia:  But, you’re MY DADDY.  Not his!  Pay attention to me!
Tucker:  I’m daddy to you both, no calm down, Amalia.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-00-18-63

Keely is nowhere to be found…as per usual.  Tucker does all the bedtime duties of the perfect father.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-04-10-85

I have no clue what fucking day it is anymore.  Maintenance time.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-06-48-76


TS3 2016-12-16 05-07-36-73

Of course, Tucker comes in and saves the day.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-09-56-94
TS3 2016-12-16 05-12-35-86

Tucker was called to the graveyard for an emergency.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-13-48-48

I think Tucker finally told Keely to get off her ass and be a mommy.  She did manage to feed all three.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-16-21-24

Then Tucker woke up before Ace could fail.  Keely did put the other two to bed though.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-16-59-70
TS3 2016-12-16 05-17-02-24

I have aging set at default, so 5 days a toddler almost drove me batty.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-17-29-93

Amalia:  I ready to wake up, daddy!

TS3 2016-12-16 05-19-04-53

Tucker:  If you ever learn to talk, we’ll make nachos.
Aric:  Nacho!

TS3 2016-12-16 05-19-05-45

Amalia:  MOMMY!  MOMMY!  Daddy is paying attention to the wrong baby!

TS3 2016-12-16 05-20-16-01

Why are you throwing poop away with a smile?
Keely:  Because I knew you came home to check on me and I’m proving how wonderful I am.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-21-06-92

Well, you’re off the hook now.  Tucker has a big day ahead of him.  Again.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-22-09-16

TS3 2016-12-16 05-23-25-91

Fire out, three sims saved and a gas leak fixed.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-24-54-62

Keely broke up a fight at work.

Oh shit..the babysitter is at the house.  Oh no!

TS3 2016-12-16 05-26-26-88


I checked in and the babysitter ran to look like he gives a shit about the kids.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-26-40-97

Meanwhile, Tucker is still out saving sims.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-27-14-98

Halfway!  YES!

TS3 2016-12-16 05-29-24-11

TS3 2016-12-16 05-30-21-28

…didn’t we already save your ass, Grozdan?

TS3 2016-12-16 05-30-44-27

At the end of the earthquake disaster, we end up 11 shy of the goal.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-30-52-77
TS3 2016-12-16 05-31-11-96

TS3 2016-12-16 05-32-19-40

Most importantly, Tucker did not miss his oldest child’s birthday (or his own for that matter).  Keely is still at work.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-40-38-11

Ace is adorable.  He becomes artistic.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-41-30-48

Keely missed Ace’s birthday, but arrives home midway through Tucker’s.

TS3 2016-12-16 05-44-24-66

Ace:  Oh Peeee-ew!
Lol, I think it’s yours from this morning.  Clean away, child.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-00-42-33

With bonuses, stipends and promotions, they saved up enough to do a remodel.  As soon as Amalia gets up, we will remove the yellow crib and make the nursery smaller and the second bathroom bigger.  It was more expensive to go through blueprint mode for two child rooms, but I sold off some stuff that was duplicated and got some cash back.  Also, the bookcases in the kids’ room actually have titles.  I wonder if the library is safe to visit now.

The twins will be aging up soon, so they all have beds already.  The kitchen is now enclosed and they have an official front door.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-11-03-21

Amalia:  Don’t even try to beat me to the dollhouse, brother.  You’ll lose!
Aric:  But..two can play with it.
Amalia;  Daddy bought it for ME.  I’m the favorite.
Says you.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-11-56-66

Tucker:  I’m getting tired of working on this thing.
You and me both.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-13-10-15

I have no clue why I took this.  Probably to prove she still exists.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-13-24-94

Keely is gonna get older.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-14-17-37

LMAO!  Maybe in a few years kid.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-20-23-77

They make a pretty good team.  Tucker dirties the place up and Ace cleans up after him (unless Keely is around, then it’s a foot race to clean).

TS3 2016-12-16 06-24-50-07

Ace took over the girl room.
Ace:  I just want my own room.  I am the oldest you know.
Tucker:  I can’t believe we have two computers.  Does that mean we’re rich?
No, it means you have a roof.  At any time, if you become poor again, those will be sold first.
Tucker: D:<

TS3 2016-12-16 06-26-15-09

Tucker had to show up for an award ceremony.  He took Ace with him.  Ace literally took off running and I had to follow him.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-27-51-49

Ace:  Hello first girl I have ever seen in my life.  Will you marry me?
Brenna:  Only if it’s an outdoor wedding.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-28-01-28

Omg.  She’s adorable!

TS3 2016-12-16 06-28-29-54

TS3 2016-12-16 06-28-37-72

Then they got off the love topic and became adorable children again.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-28-53-42

Brenna:  We’re going to be BEST FRIENDS!  Will you sit next to me at school?
Ace:  Save me a chair, and I’ll be there.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-29-05-26
TS3 2016-12-16 06-29-07-67
TS3 2016-12-16 06-29-16-00

Service done, Tucker walks over to check on Ace.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-29-50-04

Brenna:  So, wanna watch the stars with me?
Ace:  You betcha!
Why don’t you two wait until you’re older.  Okay?

TS3 2016-12-16 06-30-18-43

Cocaine..go make me babies!  Scoot!

TS3 2016-12-16 06-31-50-85

I came over and the babysitter ran to pick up Amalia.  Then Tucker came on the lot and he dumped her on the floor and left.

TS3 2016-12-16 06-35-12-45

Keely never made it home for her cake and has her birthday on the sidewalk.

TS3 2016-12-16 09-46-24-59

I went ahead and fixed her shirt when I fixed her age up hair.

TS3 2016-12-16 09-52-30-53

It’s been a long time since I have had to use this on a sim.  Normally it’s for a teen stuck doing the sneak walk, but it works for runners too.

TS3 2016-12-16 09-49-15-84

Amalia:  I the favorite!
Don’t believe it, girl.  Daddy already gave snuggles to Aric.

TS3 2016-12-16 09-50-02-78

Ace:  It’s 3am, BE QUIET!
Amalia:  I don’t hear you… tralalala
Aric:  Too much yelling, I’m out of here!

TS3 2016-12-16 09-51-57-33

Ace tried to eat, but everything he pulled from the fridge spoiled.  He finally found some pancakes.  After that he cleaned up all the spoiled dishes round the house.

TS3 2016-12-16 09-57-55-18

I foresee a bad day.  Keely just woke up and Tucker just went to bed.  These two are about to start yelling for food, sleep and diaper change due to not being changed in a few days.  I’ll need to remember to put the bath station out for the next generation.

TS3 2016-12-16 09-59-36-35

The second I unpaused the game.  LOL

TS3 2016-12-16 09-59-55-87

Keely:  Will you move so I can feed the screaming brats?
Ace:  Are you talking to me?

TS3 2016-12-16 10-01-32-59

She actually went in and fed them.  Did senility hit 21 days early?

TS3 2016-12-16 10-02-40-94

Ace:  Do you really like to cook, mom?
Keely:  I love to cook!
Ace:  Good, all the food is spoiled and we need to refill the fridge.
Keely:  ….I’m not a chef for this house, you know.  I have a life!
Ace: Since when?

TS3 2016-12-16 10-04-04-18

And there they go again.  It’s like they know Tucker is asleep and Keely is the one they have to deal with.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-19-27-96

Amalia:  Mommy, up!
Keely:  It’s naptime, baby.  I’ll see you soon.

I think Keely is broken.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-22-02-52

Keely: C’mon, sweet boy.  It’s bedtime.
Aric:  Who are you?

TS3 2016-12-16 10-22-44-45

Okay, where is the real Keely?

TS3 2016-12-16 10-23-09-17


TS3 2016-12-16 10-23-37-13

Random shot of Tucker for no reason that I can remember.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-25-29-76

He then went to the gym to workout.  He then wished for his own weight machine.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-26-30-93

Good job, Keely!

TS3 2016-12-16 10-33-31-91

Ooo!  Look who’s back at the park.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-34-45-91

Tucker left the gym, went home, picked up Ace and headed to the park.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-35-21-78

Tucker:  Hello, little boy.  I have a daughter who would like to meet you someday.
Douglas:  …

TS3 2016-12-16 10-35-46-92

Brenna:  We could go to the movies.
Ave:  Or maybe go to the Art Show.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-39-42-06

Tucker;  Did you have a good time?
Ace:  I had the best time dad.  We even planned how to spend our honeymoon!

I used Ace’s childhood action to join Brenna at chess.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-44-00-79 TS3 2016-12-16 10-44-03-63

This couldn’t come soon enough for me.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-45-28-07

Ace grew up on a Friday, I think, so here he goes to his first day of school.

Ace: That driver is creepy!

TS3 2016-12-16 10-49-14-42

I missed Aric getting his cake because Keely couldn’t get Amalia to hers and kept route failing.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-52-23-59

Aric adds Evil to his traits.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-57-18-97

I can’t remember what Amalia got.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-58-51-98

TS3 2016-12-16 10-58-56-93 TS3 2016-12-16 10-59-02-41

I’m pretty sure this happened the next day, but that’s anyone’s guess since all the days are running together now.

TS3 2016-12-16 10-59-13-19
TS3 2016-12-16 10-59-18-11

I’m not sure what to make of these two.  It might be time to add some more legacy sims to the town so that Grozmarine are not my only interests outside the house.

If you want to read about the antics of Jet, her son Cocaine, and her grandson Yellow-Submarine and his husband Grozdan, head over to Chim-Chim-Cheree.


This seems like as decent of a spot as any to stop for now.  For not sharing any genes with Keely, Brenna does have the same coloring as her.  Not sure how I feel about that, but she is just so adorable.

Torch-Holders: 1
Passing out:  4
Top Career: 1

No fails this time, but no good tally points either.
Next time, we will see teens.  Will Keely keep being the new her or will she revert to her indifferent self?  Will Tucker finally save enough sims to complete his LTW?  We shall see.

    • I must agree. Brenna is adorable. I hope her traits are good. *crosses fingers*
      I’m only base game and ambitions, so I don’t think Diva is available yet. I don’t trust the game to get this LTW completed as it is, so no more packs for at least a chapter or two. It’s already reset twice and I have lost a lot of playtime by having to revert to an older save.
