Hey there readers! Since you last saw us the triplets have had a birthday,
although as you can see Rhys, Lainey and Pip are still as gorgeous as ever.
The toddler years absolutely flew by, although they were certainly hectic!
The kids have to max three skills and three interests each as children for
the Golden Trio challenge, so they are all working on their creativity
skills. They all maxed mechanical when they were tots so they have
plenty of time to max creativity and also logic or body. Kana and I figured
those skills would be the easiest and most fun for them.
However I imagine even painting isn’t that fun when you have the ghost
of your grandma jumping out at you!
Nowhere is safe from Mam’s ghost, it doesn’t seem very happy. We
decided to move Mam and Mum’s graves up into the attic, the ghosts
were giving the kids nightmares.
Ah, here we have some close ups of the kids, and I guess I’d better
introduce them properly. Lainey here is an active little scorpio with a bit
of a mean streak, although she doesn’t show it often. Her interests
include, toys, entertainment and sports.
Pip is an extremely outgoing aries who likes toys, animals and travel. I
expect he’ll have no problem whatsoever in making friends.
And Rhys, our very nice and active pisces, is interested most by entertainment,
the paranormal and sci-fi.
With the kids not requiring so much attention I got back to researching
alien abductions, and decided that having a go on the dance sphere was
the best option, and it worked! I don’t remember it at all, I thought I was
just on the dance sphere for a bit but I went back inside Kana said I had
totally disappeared for hours!
The next day one of the kids bought home Sophia from school. Do you
recognise her? Not that you should, you’ve never actually seen her
before, but she’s Oscar and Pamela's daughter! She looks a heck of a lot
like her mum.
Kana and I made sure to teach the kids how to study properly after just
their first day at school, they need all the help they can get if they’re
going to be a truly golden trio.
I loved having the kids grown up, it meant that Kana and I had the
evenings free to spend together once the kids had gone to bed, and all
day too while they were at school!
It soon became obvious that it wouldn’t be that peaceful for long. I had
horrendous morning sickness, but Kana really was all that sympathetic.
She told me to “man up”, after all women go through pregnancies all the
time, and hers was worse as she was carrying three kids! Boolprop I hope
I’m only having the one …
I’m so happy for Kana, she’s managed to max her tinkering enthusiasm,
and she only set fire to herself the once!
The triplets also have to make three best friends each, and one day they
each bought a friend home from school. Pip easily became friends with
Phoebe Newson, and Rhys with Gina Cooke, but Lainey and Destry didn’t
really get along.
The moment I got my baby bump was weird, and I can’t really figure out
where the baby is seeing as I don’t have a womb!
Kana popped to the shops one afternoon to get some groceries and
picked up some magazines too to help the kids learn about their
interests. Of course, now Pip wants a puppy.
Kana is a life saver, it’s really hard to bend down when your pregnant!
The triplets all got their first A+ on the same day, I’m so proud of them.
They’re such good students without Kana or I having to push them. And
how identical are Rhys and Pip?! It’s a good job Pip’s hair is so curly
otherwise I’d never be able to tell them apart!
Pip wasn’t impressed when I told him the closest he was going to get to a
puppy was a toy robot, I’ve seen him playing with it though and he loves it.
Lainey loves all the celebrity gossip magazines, I just hope she doesn’t
take them too seriously, a lot of the celebs don’t look like particularly
good role models.
After I got over the spout of morning sickness I quite enjoyed being
pregnant, although Kana says I have terrible mood swings. I think she’s
making it up myself, I can’t remember being moody at all.
I like to blog about my alien abductions and my pregnancy. After all,
aliens are fascinating and I’m not the only one who thinks so.
The triplets and I had a discussion about how I came to be pregnant, they
of course hadn’t been taught about it at school. Rhys was especially
interested, what with his love of all things sci-fi and paranormal.
Lainey and Pip aren’t really that close, so we got them to play chess
together. Lainey though, is a cheater. Pip was not impressed and
eventually stormed off.
Winter seemed to last for ages. The kids even had a snow day, which
they spent studying of course.
While Kana decided to surprise me with a song in the snow.
And then it was time. I’m still not quite sure where she came out, it’s all a
bit of a blur, but it wasn’t long before I was holding a gorgeous, and very
unique little girl in my arms. She was tiny, a tiny little dot, so I named her
Dotty, and she is this generations bad apple.
It’s a blessing to have a little one around the house again, I know Kana
has missed it, she loves kids.
The kids didn’t seem too bothered about Dotty, they said she was boring!
I can see their point though, she doesn’t exactly do a lot yet.
Not like the triplets! They’re always playing and dancing in the morning
before school and on their study breaks.
Lainey and Rhys were the first to max the creativity skill.
Pip was the first to max logic, and Lainey wasn’t too far
behind. That gave her free time to do whatever she wanted,
and she likes to dance.
And in no time at all it was time for Dotty’s first
birthday. We didn’t throw a party but we still got her a
I gave her some smart milk and she then learnt to potty in one go.
Now she can pretty much look after herself, as long as we feed and
play with her once in a while she’ll be fine.
Dotty managed to break the toy robot and Kana told her off for it. Kana
swears Dotty just levitated up to almost eye level and giggled. I’m not
sure I believe that, her mind must’ve been playing tricks on her.
I’d say Dotty is a very outgoing little girl, she
certainly loves attention. She follows me almost
everywhere and barely touches her toddler toys.
Rhys managed to max logic too, I’m so proud of them all, clever beans
Dotty really doesn’t have much luck with the robot, though that’s
probably because she plays with it more than the triplets put together.
She also likes to dance to the radio, and play in the toilet. I don’t know
what she finds so fascinating about it.
Pip maxed his skills too and likes to spend his spare time on the ballet
barre, actually all the triplets do but there’s not room for all three of
them at once!
Kana dotes on Dotty, treats her just as if she were on of her own.
When Dotty’s not stalking people she likes to play with the blocks. She’s
never touched the activity table or the xylophone. In fact, she seems to
have a natural affinity for science.
I’m still working on my tinkering hobby. I figured the train set was less
likely to catch fire if it was covered in snow, although it was so sold I
couldn’t stay out for long at a time!
The next day it was time for the triplets to grow up …
Lainey grew up, looking as beautiful as ever. She’s a fortune/romance
sim and she dreams of being head of the SCIA.
Rhys’s face changed quite dramatically when he aged up, but he’s still a
good looking lad. He’s a popularity/pleasure sim who wants to be a
And Pip still looks just the same as Rhys. He’s a fortune family sims who
wants to reach his golden anniversary, just like Kana.
I think I’ll leave you here with a gorgeous photo of my nephews that Genesis sent me.
On the left is Glenn, Oona and Jihoon’s son, and on the right we have Gen and Sam’s
little boy, Lucas. And Isaac tells me that he and Sandy are expecting a baby. Mum and
Mam would be so pleased.
Come back next time to see the triplets all made over and continuing with the Golden
Trio challenges, and Dotty will grow up too!
