Chapter 1.4: Daddy Cumulus

TS3 2016-06-24 08-04-20-67

Last time, all the kids had birthdays and we had to say goodbye to Jack.

TS3 2016-06-21 16-25-39-63

Not even a day out of the house and Jack is already calling Ivory.

TS3 2016-06-21 16-26-14-20

Waiting to be greeted, Cumulus Pearl (no relation to Jack) waits outside.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-04-59-41

Ivory:  You know, you didn’t actually need to wait outside in the rain.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-05-37-24

Cumulus:  That’s okay.  I was not ready to set foot in the house yet.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-07-07-81

Upstairs, the triplets were keeping out of the way.  Rose and Hyacinth have just completed the block table and Lotus was probably talking to random strangers on the computer.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-07-41-43

Rose also has a habit of walking around scowling for no reason at all.  Especially at herself apparently.  Then I remembered that she has the grumpy trait.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-09-46-90

The older twins were downstairs eating and getting ready to meet the new member of the household.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-12-16-66

Ivory brought Cumulus in from the rain and chatted for a bit before winking at him.  It went better than expected.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-13-10-77

Well, Ivory is on the right track.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-13-38-81

Cumulus:  Back off, Hussy.  You’re moving too fast for me.

Uh oh.  It’s okay to wink, but not to blow a kiss.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-14-28-30

Well, now they both have the creeped out moodlet.  Time to separate them.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-16-09-56

Did you just far—
Cumulus:  No!  Whoopie cushion.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-16-42-59

TS3 2016-06-21 17-16-48-04

The culprit was a few feet away reading.  I swear that prank had been there for at least a week.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-18-24-47

Cumulus:  Why must I live with these animals?

Poor Cumulus was mortified and even moved to a different spot to watch tv.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-20-29-76

RB kept up her grumpy face all through the house until she showed me what the issue was.  Ew.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-21-53-90

Cumulus:  So, you have no issues with the challenge your mother is undertaking?
Azure:  Considering it started before I was born and I am close to moving out, then no.
Cumulus:  I hope to get to know you all better before starting to make the babies though.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-31-04-02

After seeing the state of the bathroom, Ivory cleans the rest of the house while waiting for the moodlet timer to run out.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-37-29-51

Cumulus:  I am completely mortified about that prank you set.  Don’t do it again.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-37-50-94

RB:  I’m not watching the same crap as them.  Change it!

TS3 2016-06-21 17-38-19-57

RB:  Much better.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-38-40-87

RB:  See, isn’t this a better channel?  Say it is.  Now!

TS3 2016-06-21 17-38-55-40

Azure:  Oh yes.  This so soooo much better.  See my grin?
RB:  It looks fake, Azzz.
Azure:  Don’t call me that, buttface.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-39-02-39

Cumulus;  Oh yes!  This is the best channel I have ever seen.

TS3 2016-06-21 17-39-13-20

RB:  You’re laying it on a bit thick, ain’tcha?
Cumulus:  Did you think so?  I thought it was pretty tame.
RB:  No, you look lame.  Tone it down a bit, really.
Cumulus:  *sigh*  Fine.  I was just trying to fit in.

TS3 2016-06-24 06-46-31-23

Not sure what these two were talking about.  I can only assume it was about all the empty cribs.

TS3 2016-06-24 06-49-11-07

Oh shit!  It’s such bad form to complain about a man to your child.  Ivory, knock it off!
Ivory: I will complain about who I want, when I want and with whoever I want!

TS3 2016-06-24 06-50-49-33

Cumulus:  How dare she complain about me to that boy!  I’ll turn that bitch into a frog.  Mark my words!

Isn’t he adorable?  I had not realized he was a witch.

TS3 2016-06-24 06-51-59-52

He’s also a bit confused.
Cumulus:  No I’m not.  I’ll turn her into a frog after I use that pick up line!

TS3 2016-06-24 06-55-16-11

I felt that we should hurry this along before war broke out.

TS3 2016-06-24 06-57-30-96

Cumulus:  I’ll be back to try again later.
Ivory:  I’ll set up a bedroom for you upstairs.
Cumulus:  I think that’s for the best.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-16-08-13

We finally have a reason to get relief from all that stinkin’ pink.  Thank you, Cumulus, for liking green!  His move in money was spent on his room.  It’s the same bed and other furnishings as in Ivory’s room, so he didn’t feel excluded.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-16-40-53

The official Daddy card.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-23-09-85

After Cumulus got his new room, I found Cinder reading Rose to sleep.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-26-47-02

Cinder:  Hello, mommy!
Ivory:  Hello, favorite daughter!
(true story)

You’re not supposed to have favorites.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-28-27-95

Rose:  What?  She can’t be the favorite!  I am!
Why aren’t you in bed?
Rose:  She called us all to eat.  So here I am.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-29-35-95

Ohhh, so that’s the way the wind blows.

Cumulus *blush*:  She’s too young to do that.
I didn’t mean that!  You have a dirty mind!

TS3 2016-06-24 07-31-32-19

Cinder:  You know, I can easily sneak into your bed tonight.
Cumulus:  Whaa?  Noo!
Cinder:  Oh c’mon, it’ll be fun!

TS3 2016-06-24 07-33-17-94

Azure:  If we don’t end up on Jerry Springer, I’ll just write a tell-all book about this.  Talk about a messed up family.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-37-13-25

The very minute that everyone else finally goes to bed (at 1am) Hyacinth, followed soon after by Lotus, get up for the day.  I think they both went to bed at like 7pm.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-38-35-55

Cinder went to bed after completing a new painting for the nursery.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-39-46-44

I really like Berry’s teen wall, so I copied it.  Blatantly.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-42-02-77
TS3 2016-06-24 07-42-11-18

Cinder keeps wanting to raise her social influence, she buys her way up the nerd and jock ladder.  It soon paid off.  I have decided that whatever traits are in that spot, have to be kept.  LOL  LIke she needs this one.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-42-51-16

I guess their hunger woke them up.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-53-22-21

The two spent the rest of the night watching Cookin’ Cable.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-55-18-94

Lotus:  OMG.  I forgot to do my homework!
Hyacinth:  It’s only Sunday, Lo.  Wait!  Homework?  I don’t have homework yet!

Neither does Rose for that matter.

TS3 2016-06-24 07-58-47-56

I got a bit distracted by Ivory zooming through the house.  Baby incoming!

TS3 2016-06-24 08-00-20-69

No one has anything pressing to do, so they all read while Lotus does her homework.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-12-11-79

Cumulus finally gets up his nerve and uses the pick up line wish up.   Ivory, is receptive, but she is a bit leery about getting too flirty with him and heads off to vomit.  Again.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-14-16-83

Cumulus and Lotus spend the rest of the morning pillow fighting.  It doesn’t end well.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-15-36-23

Hyacinth:  Daddy, I miss you.
Jack: How’s the new guy?  Does mommy like him?
Hyacinth:  He’s okay so far.  He likes to play with us.  He and mommy had a rough start, but I saw her puking earlier, so I guess things got better after we all went to bed.
Jack: I guess that’s good.
Hyacinth:  She misses you, I know that.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-19-16-61

Azure:  Hi, Dad!
Jack:  Hey, it’s my favorite son!
Azure:  I’m your only son!
Jack:  Which is why you’re my favorite one.   It’s good to hear from you!
Azure:  I actually had another reason to call.
Jack:  Is something wrong?  Are the girls okay?
Azure:  Oh, no!  Everyone is fine.  Mom is pregnant and we think it will be multiples again.  Me and Cinder want to know if we can move in with you today.
Jack:  I think we should discuss this with your mother first.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-23-57-77

Ivory:  You really only called to discuss the twins?
Jack:  Ivory, when your part of the challenge is done, I’ll be waiting for you.  But right now, the twins want to come live here and I am fine with that if you are.
Ivory:  I guess it’s okay with me too.
Jack:  Also, Lotus is upset about something, but she won’t say what the problem is.  She wants to come live here too.
Ivory:  What?  I will get to the bottom of that today.  I love you.
Jack:  I love you too.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-31-23-61

It took all day, but Ivory and Cumulus finally started getting somewhere in the romance department.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-32-10-71

TS3 2016-06-24 08-33-30-56

Even if it was just to get a digital slideshow of daddies going.

TS3 2016-06-24 08-32-56-54

After all the phone calls were done, Jack started calling everyone back.  It was too adorable.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-11-37-16

Ivory:  I wish you and your brother had talked to me about this beforehand, but I guess it’s okay if you two move in with your dad.
Cinder:  Thanks, mom!

TS3 2016-06-24 09-13-20-04

Lotus:  I thought I was going with you.
Azure:  Not right now.  Mom said maybe after your birthday.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-10-28-38

Ivory and Cumulus celebrate the smaller household.

Side note:

TS3 2016-06-24 09-14-58-94

Lotus and Cumulus don’t like each other one bit.  They keep pillow fighting and Lotus always gets hurt and upset.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-17-20-49

TS3 2016-06-24 09-17-34-01

TS3 2016-06-24 09-17-55-95

It’s Sunday, so I thought the girls deserved a treat.  I just got tired of 100’s of, “I want to come out,” notifications.  The minute the girls go to bed, they will be back in their inventories.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-29-49-60

The family is broke again.  Cumulus got the most expensive wand and an alchemy station.  The triplets got a second easel and a potion table.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-31-35-37

Most importantly, they got a new playground.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-35-04-64

The girls spent the first day of winter enjoying the almost 50 degree weather outside on the swings.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-37-08-07

Ivory was inside making lunch.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-37-33-95

While Cumulus was checking out his new wand.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-40-56-87

We interrupt lunch for Cumulus to leap at Ivory.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-42-56-43

One day they will have a real family meal.  Rose was eating cake while Ivory cooked, so she went up to use the potion table.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-52-50-67

The girls all got lucky.  None of the IF’s have seriously bad traits.  I think one is a couch potato and that was the worst trait.  They haven’t been too annoying yet either.

TS3 2016-06-24 09-57-05-96

Hyacinth’s turn at the potion table did not go well at all.

TS3 2016-06-24 10-00-15-29

I’m pretty sure they are going to wear out the bed springs at this rate.

TS3 2016-06-24 10-08-39-74

As the first snow starts falling, Ivory (finally) pops with her next pregnancy.

——–

What a rough start!  They were both highly attracted to each other, but Ivory blowing that kiss really killed all progress towards friendship.  It took the rest of the weekend to build it back up and luckily it went better the second time around.

Ivory  has a 200% chance of twins and 100% chance of triplets, so we really had to make room, which is why Cinder and Azure moved out early.

Sorry for the delay in posts.  I am sort of alternating between Fallout 4 and Destiny right now, with a dash of Dragon Age Inquisition (my 5th playthrough).

  1. “They were both highly attracted to each other, but Ivory blowing that kiss really killed all progress towards friendship” LOL sims 3 logic at its finest. I love your decorating skills and can’t wait to see the next additions to the family 🙂

  2. Really liking the family dynamic these guys have going, so sweet that the kids keep in touch with their dad after he moved out. Almost like a RL family.

    Lol, I don’t think Ivory has forgiven you get. Between the pink skin/hair and being a baby factory. SHe’s out to make this as difficult as possible for you.

    • I don’t think she will ever recover from this. She has paid me back so viciously that I’m afraid for the next three daddies.
      It got so hectic that calling Jack everyday ends up being once a week and I forgot to call him for birthday parties.
