Kirkendall Family: Esmond Kirkendall - Male Teen - Knowledge - Become Prestidigitator - Sagittarius Temperance Kirkendall - Female Child - Gemini Darcy Kirkendall - Male Toddler - Aquarius Jacquan Kirkendall - Male Toddler - Capricorn
The Kirkendall's are one of the few lucky families in the neighborhood. They had few enough people and enough money to get a fully completed house, and be able to afford the nanny, and not force Esmond to work as well. He did work for a short period of time, but found it too difficult to keep up with everything.
Temperance fished quite a bit, and made a couple of friends this way. Not only did she provide some extra money with selling the boots she found, but she kept a fresh supply of fish in the fridge.
Once again it's a super special day in Year 4, Esmond gets himself an A+ and all of that struggling feels like it's paying off a bit. The really hard part is Esmond loses fun like he's a child, so keeping Fun levels up are extremely difficult.
Birthday time for the twins, who were lucky to make it with the horrible nanny Esmond managed to get. Where the Rosada's really was surprising this families nanny was normal. Spoiled bottles were left every where, and I'm surprised the family isn't already sick with the flu. All that will change here.
First up is Jacquan, as he was up and playing. Esmond has a friend over after school, although she is not a romantic prospect. Esmond, ACR decided, is gay.
Jacquan grows up to be very handsome looking and enjoys a piece of cake before Esmond can get his brother up from a nap to grow up as well.
Little Darcy had a rough time. No wants would ever roll up for him, until the last couple of days, so he wasn't as happy as Jacquan.
Everyone celebrated his birthday anyway, and he enjoyed the candles on the cake.
Darcy grew up well despite the difficulty of fulfilling non-existent wants. He is also a very handsome little boy.
The family is big on dancing and always seems to flock to Temperance and Esmond's room to smuttle.
The kids all bond through the wonderful toy box Temperance was able to get. She is the only child in this town to have one.
Esmond keeps bringing girls home, probably because they know he won't try anything....but he's lonely. A phone call later, and most of the money too, the matchmaker drops off this guy. I don't remember his name, but I would say the pink shirt is a pretty good indicator that he's Esmond's type. Problem is, he's an adult. If Esmond doesn't find anyone in college, or before, he's a good fall back plan though. They really hit it off, and had one bolt attraction.
Pillow fights occasionally break out, and I was so happy to see it here. Temperance had the hardest time getting to know Jacquan, but through no tampering of my own, they became friends.
This feels like a house full of knowledge sims. Every single one of them wished to get skill points. Most just wanted points in anything, although Temperance was pretty specific about cleaning skills. Taking advantage of the fall, each got their points. They did have a lake day Saturday, but apparently I forgot to take pictures of it. They each had a good time, and actually these three spent most of the day playing with each other. They are getting very close.
The Rosada's start out in a semi-finished house, it at least has walls. The twins decide that take care of the 3 toddlers is going to be a divide and conquer type missions. Since Aquamarine is a family minded sim she will stay home and take care of the kids after school. Amethyst, being fortune minded, will get the highest paying job she can. In this way the nanny will only have to be there a few hours, and hopefully, with some promotions, Amethyst can keep the family afloat.
Since no one goes to school or work the first day the girls try and bond with each of the younger sisters. Sticking to what they do best. Aquamarine plays with them, and Amethyst reads a story.
Thanks to Mr. Humble the house is able to be completed, and the girls are all about pink! Every room is the little home is wall papered and carpeted (or tiled) in pink. The welcome wagon comes by to invite them all to the neighborhood that they themselves have just moved into. Alexandria Potts is among them and provides a slew of very useful information about raising toddlers on no money and doing it alone.
Beulah Norwood takes an instant liking to the toddlers and joins in on their play while the rest eat and try and to get ready for everyone to leave.
Amethyst and Aquamarine keep the toddlers up as long as possible. The family bought a house with a very large bedroom, but everyone will be sleeping in it. Amethyst will take the late night feeding and caring this time.
A once in a simmers life opportunity, a nanny that cleans!! Yes by golly she cleaned. She picked up spoiled bottles, made beds, put the toddlers in their cribs, changed their diapers and everything. She was a life saver, unlike most nanny which make life worse. Perhaps she recognized the predicament.
The toddlers really bonded during the day, which just each other to play with. They got to be pretty close by the time they grew up.
Amethyst has managed to keep up her needs enough to be able to get an A+, wohoo!
Aquamarine did the same! Today is an extra special day. A+'s all around and it's time for the toddlers to grow up. The twins survived with a lot of hard work, sacrifice and determination.
First up is Ariana, the only other blue member of this family in a very pink heavy house. Amethyst decides to do the honors.
There is even a potential family friends there to celebrate this momentous, and very exciting occation. Not to mention feat of patients!
Ariana grows up looking beautiful and into blue PJ's. She is very strongly stating she is NOT all about pink.
Aquamarine then brings....I want to say Brigid, to the cake. They grew quite close during the toddler years.
Brigid, unlike her sister is happy to share that she is all about pink.
As does her sister Danielle, who looks exactly like her, only with different pink pj's. This family LOVES pink.
I had to give myself a bit of a break on the looks. I believe Brigid has the very fluffy hair, and Danielle has the pulled back hair, but I may have switched them. I'll have to check when I get back to the family. Meanwhile Amethyst takes the chance to get some much needed homework completed before collapsing into bed, it's been a very hard few years.
Aquamarine is going to make an amazing mom to kids someday. She helped the girls study, while Amethyst caught up on her after work. Life is getting easier, but it's still going to be a few tough years, until the triplets become teens.
On Saturday (year 6) the family takes a much needed "vacation" down the street. No one has left the house except for school or work in 5 years. All the girls enjoy getting closer, the free hot dogs, and meeting some of the neighbors.
The lake was crowded but everyone found a place to cast out a line and try their luck. They even caught enough fish to provide food for awhile. Fall is ending, and winter beginning. Amethyst and Aquamarine can only hope they can hold out, and still find time to make their dreams come true.
Profitt Family: Sandra Profitt - Female Elder - Family - Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens - Gemini Susan Profitt - Female Elder - Family - Graduate 3 Kids from College - Cancer Bob Profitt - Male Adult - Romance - WooHoo with 20 Different Sims - Scorpio Charles Profitt - Male Teen - Popularity - Become Rock God - Aries Craig Profitt - Male Child - Libra Michael Profitt - Male Toddler - Aquarius
The Profitts are one of the lucky families. They may not have a completed house, but they have plenty of people to care for the children, so no nanny is going to be required. Mr. Humble's gift comes in very handy to finish off some of the more needed home improvements before the family can really get settled in.
The kids quickly learn how to study thanks to Bob and grandma Susan. Little Michael "studies" Charisma constantly with the bunny head. He will grow up to be a smart little boy I think.
The TV is the place to be in this house. Of course the TV also hosts the only 2 chairs in the entire place, so for comfort alone everyone flocks to watch the TV, even when eating.
Bob, being a romancer does exactly what he does best, with Beulah Norwood. He finds her super sexy, and she looks to him the same way. They enjoy their multiple encounters with one another thanks to ACR.
By the time we reach Thursday everyone is very excited. This means a party for Michael. Also, Charles comes home super excited because he was able to finally get an A+ in school. Way to go Charles!!
The party is small, mostly just family, although Bob appears to have brought a friend home from work to join them. Perhaps it was Sandra, she works as well. Susan got elected to stay home with the kids, and she was fine with that.
Celebrate one and all Michael grew up in a child....and rather feminine PJ's. It doesn't seem to bother him any, so we'll just leave it alone. He grows up to be very handsome, and I think he will be breaking a few hearts as a teen.
The TV is still the place to be, and we finally get a chance to see Craig, who was pushed a bit to the background with a toddler running around. Now Craig and Michael bond while in front of the TV. Not only is this thing where the chairs are, it also holds almost all the fun!
Grandma Sandra takes time out to tuck in each boy at bed time. Because she works outside of the home she doesn't get to spend nearly as much time as she would like with the boys. Hopefully that can change before it's too late.
What would a Saturday be with going to the lake as a family. Since Michael is a child now it's a great way to get out and meet other people in the neighborhood, and some of the surrounding ones as well. Everyone has a great time, and as Fall comes to a close the family is snug at home, even if it doesn't have wall paper yet.
