Hi! Welcome to the Zany Zales! Let’s dig right in!
Zale Check! Juniper is standing around, getting ready to restore her brain power.
Krypton, our TH – is right where we left him.
Sam is resting after giving birth to the triplets.
I don’t blame her!
Keiko is standing outside with the laundry gnome.
She has “zombie attack” in her queue.
And here we have Livid, Lavender and Lilac!
Aw. My little pink burritos.
Hurry! Before the swings stop!
Looks like the girls are in good hands.
Aha! What have we here?
This is not a “cheat” baby (from sauna woohoo) but a pregnancy from good ol’ fashioned shower woohoo.
Lavender takes the lead as an early favorite.
Although there are two other babies to watch Lav is the only one anyone’s showing any interest in.
She’s also the only one awake? Not sure if that matters.
Boop. Parenting completed.
It’s a birthday!
Not the much anticipated triplet toddler birthday, but Keiko’s YA!
Hey, that ugly girl Pansy is here. And hang in there Krypton, you can have a slice of cake in a moment.
Sam cheers for her sister-in-law… I personally just want her out of the house.
KILL IT WITH FIRE!
I cannot believe the horrors that The Zale Family ISBI – Alphabetcy is responsible for.
Keiko rolls kleptomaniac joining loves the cold, genius, absent-minded and easily impressed.
Isn’t she lovely?
See ya Keiko!
HEY! I didn’t give you that hair. Oh well, toodles.
HEY PANSY! What the heck are you doing?
Put the baby back in the swing.
You moron, she was just fine where she was.
OOOoooh, I see… you’re not just ugly…
You’re evil too.
Krypton: You ugly, get outta my house.
*Pretends they didn’t just politely wave goodbye*
Pansy: Someone should shut up that baby.
Poor Liv… there there little peanut.
Krypton will make it alright.
Sam wakes up around 1:00am to pop into pregnancy stage one!
Both her and her husband instantly roll wishes for a girl. Well, I hope it’s a boy, so there.
I decide to let Sam try her hand at parenting and stop having Krypton restart the swings. We’ll see how it goes!
She’s family oriented, so I’m sure it’ll be great!
Sam: I think this delicate bundle of baby should swing EXTRA FAST!
Poor Lilac. Sam, this is not a good start.
We have guests! Anne-Marie, Kasidy and Kahless!
We have cakes!
It’s time to meet those triplets!
Krypton takes Livid, Sam takes Lavender…and someone is crying. I’d assume it’s Lilac, since she’s left behind.
Anne-Marie is ROCKING out over there by the stereo.
Keiko shows up and cheers, Livid has blown out her candle, and Juniper has gone up to get Lilac.
I like how Sam, Juniper and Krypton all had the highest relationship with a different triplet.
Hurry up, Juniper!
We’re ready to meet the girls!
Lilac is first! Throwback grandma Juniper green hair, normal eye shape, but alien in hue, the Zalien Nose Curse, nice full cheeks and lips. What a great mix!
Her favorite color is purple (how fitting!) and she’s disciplined and easily impressed.
Livid! She likes grey and is a neurotic heavy sleeper. NORMAL EYES AND NOSE!
I’m so excited!
Lastly, Lavender! She’s much like her sister Lilac, with the green hair, normal eye shape in alien black, but she has a nice proper nose! She also likes purple (I swear, I had no influence over that!) and is a cold loving couch potato.
And I don’t have a picture. CRAP! Oh well, you’ll see her as this post progresses, I guess. Mega-fail on my part. Sorry about that! But I just couldn’t be happier with all three of the girls.
Krypton gets little Lilac in the walker.
A starving Livid in the playpen…
But no time for Lavender because…
…THE BABY IS COMING!
There’s your first glimpse of Lavender, and you can’t even see her little face!
Off to the hospital!
It’s a BOY!
And a GIRL!
They’re both green (again) but I’m stoked! I have FOUR girls to poll for heir poll, I’ve met my Boy/Girl challenge, AND Sam will complete her LTW of raising 5 babies to teenager.
The boy is Levi – he’s eccentric and athletic.
The girl is Leslie – she’s grumpy and disciplined.
By the time Sam and Krypton get back from the hospital, the triplets are a mess.
It’s a real struggle to just get everyone to STOP (hey look, it’s Lav!) and just let Krypton take care of everything.
STOP putting the babies in the highchair.
I finally realized it was my fault for putting this in the dining room, and I eventually move it up near the nursery.
Just let Krypton fix things.
There there, Liv. Daddy’s home.
And he knows best!
Beware the claw!
Alright Sam, I’m watching you – please don’t turn the swings on “fast”.
Note: See that painting Krypton is in the middle of? He’s used that same block-style MANY times. Interesting.
For a few brief moments, all five children are taken care of and happy.
Lav and Lil.
And Leslie and Levi.
We have peace.
Now paint my pet.
There is much work to be done!
Dang it Sam! “Feed on floor” is a perfectly fine option.
Apparently I haven’t moved that thing yet.
Um, Lavender? Are you okay?
So… that’s not good.
Krypton? Little help?
Dang, you’re busy potty training Lilac.
Hang in there, Lav – He’s going to save you next.
All fixed. Well that was alarming.
Parenting is hard.
Krypton and I working very hard with these little munchkins.
Let’s see if Liv has a better adventure with the walker than her sister.
Note: It was fine this time.
Two down, one to go!
How cute are the girls?
Answer: Very cute.
Juniper just got promoted!
Only ONE MORE to go!
Look at all that nasty floor potty.
Trying to train up triplets will do that to you. I like how the invention gnome is very carefully NOT touching the mess.
Maid: Looks like I’m done here! *Plops garbage on floor* -$125.00
Nice work Sam…
You broke it!
It’s not like Krypton doesn’t have fifty million other things to do…
…single-handedly raising your FIVE children.
Aw, look at this cute painting Krypton made?
It’s the first one he’s painted that I’ve kept.
Oh Lavender… why is it always you?
Is it because I missed your CAS shot?
Whoa, look what Juniper made!
It’s a flaming angel food cake!
Just so happens Krypton is hungry!
He got a cute “warm fuzzies” moodlet for 2 hours.
Aw, too adorable.
These two played in here so long, they’re best friends.
This stupid skill is taking FOREVER.
I’m sure it has nothing to do with the constant interruptions of five children.
WE HAVE CAKES!
It’s not for the triplets, however.
It’s Leslie’s birthday!
And of course little Levi!
Here’s Leslie! Alien colored eyes, normal shaped, dark hair and a proper nose!
Leslie likes Irish green.
Our Levi has taken on more of his mom’s face shape, but Krypton’s facial features.
His favorite color is regular green.
Juniper would NEVER change her hairstyle, so here she is!
A slightly more conservative outfit. I think she looks adorable.
Good heavens my Zales are glitchy today.
Juniper: *Scratches butt with armpit cake*
Speaking of glitches, how many can you count in this picture?
I see two. Liv’s invisible IF, and Lil playing INSIDE the block table.
Alright Livid, five toddlers is hard enough without you crying for no reason.
Do cease, please?
Cutie patootie Levi!
Juniper is an adorably doting grandmother.
She’s also very helpful!
Sam DOES still live here.
She’s mopping up potty, it’s very helpful.
You have no idea how difficult this was:
As soon as Krypton would get one put in, Sam or Jupiter would take them out, or put it on fast, or go in for a tickle attack, or stand in the way, or just INTERFERE. So, left to right, Lilac, Levi, Livid, Leslie, and Lavender. I present, generation L!
I started calling it the “assembly line” in my head while playing…
Sam is actually helping this time.
It’s birthday time again! The “Purple Triplets” are ready to become children!
Aw, super cute:
Livid rolls diva, joining heavy sleeper and neurotic. I give her a little subtle make-up to suit her diva trait.
Lavender adds equestrian to couch potato and loves the cold. She gets to wear a cowgirl hat and boots!
Lilac rolls animal lover to go with easily impressed and disciplined. The tiny Zale Nose Curse looks terrible on a rounder face.
But I just love all three of them. ❤
Liv’s first act outside of the swing is to break the dishwasher.
Lil and Lav just eat cake like normal little girls.
Try not to stay there too long, you’re blocking the fridge!
And with that – the parenting/painting nook heads for simpler times.
Until the bedtime story madness begins!
And that’s it for this post! Do join us again soon, won’t you? Until then, HAPPY SIMMING!
