Welcome back! Last time we met Ivory and Jack’s first grandchild, Francesca. We also had a poll battle between Hyacinth and Orchid for the chance to be heiress (the results are in!). We saw the twins, Charm and Chamomile become big girls, which was soon followed by the birth of our first singleton, Taffeta Grace.
Hyacinth has been taking selfies with Mom and Orchid. She had graduated with honors last chapter and voted “Most likely to fulfill their LTW”. I hope she can do that out in the world. She is still the only one who had a prom, and was voted prom queen.
In other news, we find out that Peach is so bad at games, that she has to play with a toddler to win.
Cherry got home from her first day of work and spent the rest of the day in front of the tv.
Upstairs, faced with the choice of reading a bedtime story or potty training, Ivory chose the bedtime story. Orchid was tasked with the potty training since Jazz was still at work.
Ivory: It’s good practice!
Chamomile: Mommy! I can’t reach you!
Ivory: Orchid, you’re supposed to potty train her, not make her cry.
Orchid: Will you shut up and pee?
Taffy: I WANT TO GO TO BED!
Somehow Orchid convinced Taffy to keep trying and she finally got the job done and earned a well deserved nap.
Chamomile: Huck, I need a bedtime story!
Huck: It’s 7:30 in the morning, Cham. I need to get my homework done before the bus. Go ask someone else.
Charmie: The bus isn’t here yet, is it?
Charmie: Then were are you going?
Cham: Over here to pass out.
Peach: Look at her. She’s passed out with her eyes open.
Charmie: How creepy!
Peach: I hope she moves soon. I can’t get to the bus with her blocking the door.
Charmie: Well, we could go out one of the side doors.
Peach: Nah. Let’s just stand here and route fail and cry.
You’re just gonna have to finish it at school, Huck.
Huck: Damn. I better not be late again.
Jazz: Pipe down, I’m right here with your bottle.
Taffy: Tanka, daddy.
I was quite surprised to see Orchid show up to feed Taffy. She ended up going to do laundry since Jazz took care of the bottle.
Jazz: Let’s start with the word, “Homework”. In just a little while, you will be going to school and doing your homework.
Taffy: No homework!
Jazz: Yes, homework. And if you have trouble, I’m just a phone call away.
Taffy: Doggie eat homework.
Jazz: We don’t have a doggie, baby.
Taffy: I can have doggie?
Jazz: No, you can’t have a doggie.
Taffy: *sniffle* Pleease, daddy?
Jazz: I won’t be here long enough to get you a doggie. How about I get one at my new house and you can come visit all the time?
Taffy: I go with you and doggie?
Jazz: Not until you have a few birthdays.
Taffy: I want doggie now!
Not sure what is going on here.
Ivory: You are quickly becoming my least favorite kid.
Peach: Like I care.
Ahh. Peach is in a mood swing.
There are seven unused desks, why don’t you use one?
Peach: If I wanted to use one, I would have. Now buzz off.
*I’m so glad it’s her birthday*
Jazz: I’m leaving and taking Taffy with me.
Oh no you’re not! You still got some time left in the house.
Well lookie who learned to walk while we were witnessing Peach’s attitude problem.
It was Cherry’s work day, so the cakes were held back to wait for her to come home. She ran off to do her homework before I even knew she was home.
She is so stinkin’ adorable. Sadly, no one has had IF’s since Jack’s kids were toddlers. I wonder why that is?
Taffy is ready for her birthday now too.
Update: After her birthday, Ivory checked the mail and Taffy got an IF. I guess they only show up if you have SP turned on.
Huck: Yay! Birthday!
Peach: Just hurry up already.
Cherry: I’m not ready to adult!
Peach: Well I am, so get a move on.
Jazz’s elbow: Oops, am I in the way?
#9 Cherry Freeze – Green Thumb, Easily Impressed, Cat Person, Good, and Handy.
#10 Peach Blizzard – Loves the Cold, Equestrian, Hot Headed, Adventurous, and Night owl.
#11 Huckleberry Glaze – Neat, Virtuoso, Family Oriented, Brave, and Absent Minded.
All three witnessed a Paparazzi die as children and they all rolled Law Enforcement LTW.
God, I wish they had different faces they could make. But damn, the lip on Peach cracked me up.
All of the girls hugged Jazz goodbye.
(it’s very bright near all the elevators)
Ivory and Jazz got their picture done for the memory wall.
Ivory: I’m really glad to have gotten to know you and I thank you so much for helping me with my goal.
Jazz: You’re very welcome and I look forward to visiting.
Family tree was updated. I just made the new background before starting this play session. I need to make an updated one, but I’m too lazy tonight. I’ll do it in time for Daddy #4.
With only five people in the house, it was a lot easier to find and have Orchid repair everything that had died.
Ooh Taffy is well on her way to becoming a knockout.
#14 Taffeta Grace – Friendly, Grumpy, and Bookworm.
Hyacinth, Huckleberry, Peach, Cherry and Jazz all moved out. Jazz lives alone and was given some cash to live on. Peach, Cherry and Huck all moved in with Cumulus. I gave him $100,000 per child so that when I turn SP on again ,everyone can move to their own house. Hyacinth moved in with Jack who got the same deal as Cumulus. Hyacinth will remain not aging and will not be allowed to have a romance. If something happens and Orchid dies or something, Hyacinth will come back to be the heiress.
I did forget to have Ivory be “Just Friends” with Jazz, so that will have to be dealt with before any hanky panky gets done.
