Name: Alfred PrettyAspiration: FamilyLTW: Have 6 grandchildrenStats: I have no idea because I always forget to look at the stupid thingsTurnOns: Dark hair and good at cookingTurnOff: I completely forgetGenetics: Skin 2, red hair, green eyes
Okay so it’s not so grand, but he’s got a roof over his head, a bed, fridge (underThe counter), and a bathroom!
While waiting for the paper, I had Alfred get looking for treasure. A few extraSimoleans never hurt anyone. Besides, he found two rocks! That’s enough for…nothing!After the paper arrived, Alfred took a job in Adventuring (I think) and managedto catch the first carpool. Which inadvertently led to him missing the welcomewagon. Oh well.
Name: Phoebe Chin Aspiration: Family LTW: Have 6 grandchildren Stats: No frickin’ clue Turn Ons/Off: I can’t remember to save my life Genetics: Skin 2(?), blonde hair, green eyesI had Alfred accept the strange “Come downtown and hang out with people you’venever met!” phone call. This gave me a chance to scope out potential spouses and Icame across this beauty. It took several days for Alfred to build up a good relationshipwith her but eventually he did.
As you can see, Alfred made enough money at work to get some wall coverings andfloors.Alfred: Phoebe, I know my face is hideous, and we only have one lightning bolt, but I need a pretty spouse and your pretty okay. Will you marry me?Phoebe: Oh Alfred, yes! I’ve always wanted to be married to a toad!
Since neither Alfred or Phoebe had any real friends, there wasn’t much of a party.Alfred brought a friend home from work that day, so at least someone was there.Phoebe only brought about 5K into the family. Talk about cheap.The party was a raging success and the two jetted off for their honeymoon andspent the next few days making babies.
I sent Phoebe to the store to give her a makeover. I love CC like nobody’s buisnessso I couldn’t stand to see her in Maxis hair. Besides, I kept the ponytail. Just sprucedit up a little. And she looks so much better in regular clothes than that bartenderoutfit.
I was surprised how quickly Phoebe became pregnant. I have the risky woohooand silent lullaby mod installed, so I had them woohoo at least 3 times a day. By day3 Phoebe popped into the second trimester. And besides being a little more tired thanusual, she didn’t have any symptoms. No throwing up, no peeing herself, and nopassing out. Bonus!
Phoebe: This wallpaper is so hideous it’s giving me the worst stomach pain!Haha, nope! It’s a baby! Congratulations Phoebe, you have given birth to the firstchild of generation 1!It’s a boy, named Brandon Pretty. He has red hair and green eyes.
So it would appear that I am terrible at keeping track of pictures. But hey, I’m new tothis, so give me a break!Before I knew it, it was Brandon’s birthday. Alfred blew out the candles, tossed himin the air, and smacked him hard with the ugly stick.Brandon seems to have inherited Phoebe’s eyes and nose. Everything else is pure Pretty.
Brandon was a good toddler. He skilled relatively easily, and never once tried toplay with the toilet. I think that’s a record for me.Phoebe and Alfred are EXTREMELY attentive parents. Every time Brandon wastired, they both wanted to put him to bed. So one would put him to bed, and thenthe other would take him out and put him back. This was extremely annoying, andresulted in everyone being exhausted and not getting enough sleep
After Brandon became a child, both Phoebe and Alfred were desperate for the pitterpatter of baby feet again, so I got them woohooing and once again, Phoebe becamepregnant quickly. I wonder if it’s something to do with both of them being familysims?
Phoebe: Oh no, the wallpaper! It’s still giving me stomach cramps!You are sorely mistaken again, Phoebe, and smacking the wall with your newbornbaby is not going to change the wallpaper.It’s a girl! Bethany Pretty has red hair and green eyes just like her brother!
I started slacking a bit in childcare because I wanted to focus on their careers inan attempt to get more money. As a result, I missed both Brandon and Bethanygrowing up. However, they both grew up well.Brandon seems to have inherited Alfred’s lower face and Bethany got his upper.At this point, Bethany actually looks quite adorable!
I messed up bad. Because Phoebe and Alfred kept fighting over putting Bethanyinto her crib, they neglected to give her a bottle. So guess who showed up? Thesocial worker. And just like that, Bethany was gone.Then Brandon went and got himself over heated and kept passing out. As a result,he starved to death and I was officially out my heir AND my spare. And with Alfredand Phoebe both close to Elderhood, I had to get them woohooing again quickly.
Alfred: WAAAHHH!!! I’m a terrible parent!Phoebe: Alfred, our kids were quite hideous. We can try again! I can eat cheesecake while pregnant. Then we only have to go through this once.Alfred: But what if the new babies are taken away again?Phoebe: Don’t worry. Sim social workers aren’t very efficient. They’ll never let us adopt, but they won’t ever come check that we don’t have new babies.Alfred: Well… okay, let’s get woohooing.
I hate twins. Like, despise them. But I seriously did not want to do this again, andwith Phoebe’s high cooking skill, cheesecake was not a problem. Luckily, it waseasy to get her pregnant again.
Phoebe: I don’t understand! Why does hideous wallpaper upset my stomach?I love how sims pass off the baby. It’s so cute ^_^
Cheesecake is wonderful. Here we have our new heir and spare. Alfred is holdingBenson, a baby boy with red hair and green eyes. Phoebe is holding Brittany, a babygirl with blonde hair and green eyes. I was so happy to see the blonde gene comingthrough!
Alfred: I’m starving to death over here!I kind of hate ghosts. Brandon’s ghost shows up every single night and scareshis parents, raids the fridge and throws a big hissy fit.
Alfred: Hey look, I’m old!Really? You look the same to me.Alfred: No honest, my clothes changed and I look so refined. I age like Clooney…I highly doubt that.
Benson and Brittany grew up without all of their skills. Twins are crap.But they were always close and huggled all the time :)
I really did have good luck with these twins. Their parents were constantly playingwith them, so they always had their wants fulfilled.They both got a good smack with the ugly stick though. Although Benson looks alittle more promising than his sister. It’s the nose. Brittany has Alfred’s nose.
I slacked again. Phoebe grew up, but I forgot to get a picture of her, so you’ll justhave to watch for her in the next chapter. Big bonuses for both Alfred and Phoebemeant I rebuilt the house from the bottom up. Again, watch for pictures in the nextchapter.Anyway, both Benson and Brittany grew up well. Although, both of them are quiteugly.
And I leave you with this glorious specimen.Isn’t he a real catch?
