Hey there! A real Zale Update! It was a fun play session, so let’s get to it!
Mindy is sleeping.
In weird sheets.
Here’s the back of Grandpa Mango…
…And baby Oscar.
Rajan is mopping.
Not So Fun Fact: I loaded this game to play a long time ago, but the shower was permanently broken, it annoyed me, so I quit. It was not an issue this time. Yay.
Natalie is also sleeping.
I’ve noticed Zale checks involve a lot of sleeping. Apparently I save and quit when Sims have gone to bed. Oh well!
Noah just set this booby trap on the computer.
And her IF.
And lastly, little Olive.
Note: It’s hard to take pictures of kids in the playpen. Just sayin’.
As play continued…
Aw… old people snuggles!
Um… Holy cute.
And when did Noah get so handsome? Pink knew. Pink always knew. She said she wanted Noah from the get-go! I’m not that good at reading children…
Good heavens, Mango, you’re going to give yourself a heart attack.
Babies cry… You fathered, like… a lot of them… you should be more well adjusted.
YAY! Natalie’s awake!
She’s contemplating the weather. Looks pretty nasty out there. So much for living in paradise!
I was thinking about how yucky it would be to lifeguard in this weather, but HOLY LLAMAS, Natalie doesn’t work for SEVEN DAYS.
WTHeck, yo? That’s like, a life stage…
Seven days vacation, with no one to control but Natalie… She wanted to make waffles.
Someone feed OPHELIA.
And Oh Noes! Mindy has Handbowl Disease! Rajan seems to think Handbowl is smexy, so he proceeded to flirt with his MIL, for like, the tenth time.
YAY! Now feed her.
Whatever you have in that bowl will do fine.
Ugly… Ugly baby.
Just so happens, it’s Love Day.
Smooch and move on…
Yes Mindy… You need food. Babies need food.
FEED THE BABY.
Or lick a plate…
While your grandchild starves in the background.
Grandpa to the rescue!
HERE! EAT THIS! *Slams bottle down*
Ophelia: NOM NOM NOM
There, now she’s kinda cute.
Natalie finds a moment to spare for her sweet son Oscar.
Then feeds a toddler the quick and easy way.
And rescues Ophelia from the Idiots.
Or TRIES TOO. MINDY…
…Put the baby DOWN. Mindy: NO! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Okay, okay… be cool everyone… just a levitating baby who needs to wee.
I’m sure everything is fine.
Mindy vanished and is now on the front porch.
Natalie went to talk to Mango, now she’s here too!
With Rajan? WTH, game.
I then got a pop-up that Natalie had a route failure thingie… okay then.
Well, Nat can’t go to work, but she CAN work out!
Which one of you morons put the baby’s swing on “fast”?
AND WHY IS THAT EVEN A THING?
Natalie also needs charisma, it would seem.
A quick mirror chat with oneself, and she gets promoted! She’s now a “Mouth Breather” hardeeharhar.
***Walls down on purpose***
It’s the hand-on-waist-tap-your-foot trying to get to the baby conga line!
Seriously not the most annoying thing ever. 😐
Hey, lookie here!
Nova married someone! I hope they make babies!
You know, Rajan is quite handsome…
(You’re welcome) but I don’t really like him much. Weird, right?
He *is* a pretty good dad.
(and the only one awake…)
He doesn’t play favorites.
So that’s cool. Might wanna get dressed, though.
MANGO! PUT THE BABY BACK.
She was FINE in the swing!
It’s Noah’s birthday!
No one cares, but me.
AHA! They do care! They were just slow to arrive.
❤ Family ❤
He had computer whiz locked in. HELLO HANDSOME.
A quick makeover…
…But I don’t kick him out right away… I locked in “See Noah Graduate” for both Mango & Mindy.
While everyone was swarming the cake, Natalie manages to rescue Oscar from a “fast” swing.
She looks thrilled.
There there, nooboo…
Rajan and Mindy were just flirting. AGAIN. Directly in front of Mango.
He decides not to even worry about getting upset, but woos Mindy right back into his charms.
Wow! Mango manages to master the charisma skill all on his own!
It’s that social butterfly trait. He has to socialize constantly. Good for him!
All the adults were stir crazy, so I send everyone out to a beach on this fine, rainy day.
Who hid the speedboat, dangit?
And apparently Mindy is bringing the baby.
And Rajan forgot to come.
I cheat and force him to come along too.
The rain cleared, and I forced a job to spawn with the NRaas cheat.
Otherwise, Natalie was NEVER going to work!
OMG, how cute!
I’ve never done the lifeguard career before… way too fun!
Old man Mango plays in the sea.
Fulfills the old guy’s water need, so that’s cool. Like, literally cool. See his breath? It’s 33 degrees. Oy!
Okay Mindy, I was annoyed you brought Oscar along…
But you’re kinda cute.
Nice Noah… good call to catch some freezing rays.
The boombox really ties it together.
MUSIC CHANGED! I think she sees something!
At least Rajan seems to have arrived.
Ha! How cute!
I’m obsessed with this career.
Um. No boat girl.
GASP! NOAH IS FROZEN!
DOUBLE GASP! I went to Natalie to go unthaw him, but she’d queued up “RESCUE”!
Well, we HAVE to do that! I mean it’s her LTW! Hang on Noah!
Go get her, Natalie!
I know you just ate too much birthday cake, don’t get a cramp!
Gah! They’re dropping like flies! Apparently it is WAY too cold for a beach day.
Technically, this is the second and THIRD Sim she saved today.
But unthaws don’t count…
That was incredibly fun. EVEN with the frozen friends.
But time to go home.
Pretty game is pretty.
Mindy and the baby seem stuck together.
Both their needs are suffering.
It was way too much work, but I finally pried Oscar from Mindy’s hands.
His needs were so low, he screamed through his entire bath.
Hurry up Nat. I’m bored.
I wanna go be a lifeguard again.
Oh wait. We have some things to do first.
BIRTHDAYS! I found it interesting that Noah and Oscar were besties. Rajan and Natalie didn’t surprise me.
Ophelia adds evil to grumpy and disciplined.
A face not even a mother could love – and with traits like that, she just might take over the world. (She scares me – in the game she’s constantly laughing like a maniac)
Speaking of in-game… she’s a bit better.
Kinda cute even…
…Until she looks up at her grandma like this…
Oscar went second and OMG he’s SOOOOO Cute!
So glad it’s a boy’s turn to take over! Even if we don’t have another sibling to poll, he’s super adorable!
Mid-festivities, Natalie and Rajan snuck away and enjoyed a bit of parental privacy.
And ya know… cake.
Olive aged up next, adding couch potato to loves the heat and genius.
She’s dressed for the warm weather… and cuter than her sister! (for now.)
So I know this is like, the PERFECT stopping point… but Natalie rolled a wish about this thing…
AND OMG IT BLOWS BUBBLES.
And this dude is not going to have a normal graduation…
So it’s toodles to him…
And we have a VERY IMPORTANT MISSION for these two!
Can ya guess?
Natalie: Race ya to the door, Dad!
Careful, Nat… he’s not as young as he once was…
We almost skipped something paramount. Do you see it?
How about now?
I barely managed to remember to get Mango the most important tattoo of all SimTime. He’s quite advanced in his elder years, and he JUST got the Gnome of the Wrist. I would have genuinely been disappointed in myself if I had missed this vital tradition. I did have to control him for a couple clicks to get it – but totally worth it! Natalie managed to be marked while still in YA-hood. Good. I must be more careful. Abraham, Bettina, Cyrus, Daisy, Erik, Flora, Giles, Helen, Ike, Juniper, Krypton and Lavender all were marked with The Gnome. I’m so relieved Mango and Natalie finally have it too.
They enjoyed a nice chat before heading home.
One last thing before we go.
Until next time! ❤ Happy Simming!
