"Remember, apply a powder base to the lids before applying your color eyeshadow for better blending" Tim is just full of handy make up tips.
Jamie shows up for an impromptu visit. He and Tamira just had a baby girl named Kesha.
So that means Jamie is on hand to mock Chelsea as she transitions into the elder stage.
Chelsea is not amused.
Kiran also aged up.
"Something smells like dirty socks..."
The first step to solving your problem is admitting you have a problem...
Despite the fact that he's obviously aware of his own stink, Theo remains in denial and refuses to bathe.
He's also not been sleeping.
"How can you expect me to sleep in that bed? It's been woohooed in!"
You could do the laundry? Fresh sheets...you know you want to...
Laundry? What's that?
I have yet to find an NPC servant who will touch laundry beyond picking it up off the floor to throw in hamper.
Fine, go have some more coffee or pass out on the floor, Theo. Pretty soon, you won't be my problem anymore. We're moving.
Sitara got her final promotion and achieved her LTW. She's also rolled a wish for another baby. I've decided I want to move her and Tim and the kids to a new house before she gets pregnant again.
CC the cat came into the house with Tim, but barely had an acquaintance relationship to him. Since she moved in, she's become BFFs with Chelsea, and hardly knows anyone else, so I didn't have the heart to take her with us.
So, Sitara, Tim and the kids pack up and leave.
This is what Kiran and Chelea are doing while they are moving out. As you can see, they are devastated about having an empty nest.
And this is their new house. It's up on my Simblr if anyone wants it.
Just a cute pic of Tim playing xylo with Lalita in the nursery.
"Um, honey? I think I washed Lalita's legs off."
Now that they're settled in (and Lalita got her legs back), Tim and Sitara work on that 'have baby' wish.
Also, I didn't mention it before, but Tim wished to get a tattoo. Here it is. Enjoy it while it lasts.
"Um, tattoos are permanent?"
If you say so...
"Hey, you knew I liked playing guitar at the crack of dawn before you married me..."
When they were dating, Sitara used to sleep through Tim's 3am serenades. Now, not so much.
Well, she's up now, she might as well get cracking on that novel before going to work. She's working on a wish to write 25 bestsellers. She's got 13 and is bringing in something like 30k a week in royalties.
"My blocks. You got that? My.Blocks."
Dhanvin ages up to find he has a bossy older sister.
Noteworthy because this is the first time the potty gets emptied since moving in. Yes, it does stink, Tim.
"You're doing great! Just, scoot back a little so you aren't sitting on the xylo. It will sound much better that way."
Sitara is pregnant. And with the dirty plates everywhere, I already miss Stinky Theo.
Since she has a bazillion unspent points, Sitara buys a degree in Communications and takes the Neat trait to go with that. It helps a little with the plate situation, but she still avoids emptying potties.
Tim rolls a wish to get another tattoo. Enjoy it while it last.
"Why do you keep saying that?"
Though she writes mostly romance novels and poetry, Sitara is coming up with a plot for a crime novel, about a musician who is murdered by his wife because he won't stop playing guitar in the bedroom while she's trying to sleep...
"That plot isn't for a novel..."
Once again, Sitara goes into labor while she's at her desk, writing.
Tim was at work still while she was rushing off to the hospital, and he followed her there as soon as his shift ended. He made it to the hospital doors but was stopped from going in by his own age up celebration.
Tim and Sitara have another boy, Kalyan. After Tim aged, he had a malfunction that forced me to use 'Fix Invisible Sims' on him. It fixed him, but completely randomized his outfits and removed his tattoos. I was lazy and just threw some clothes on him. I didn't bother giving him his piercings back, or reapply his ink. Maybe next time I play. At least he's not having a midlife crisis.
So, the next day they decide to throw a birthday party for Lalita. Kiran shows up but immediately hails a cab and leaves. Most of the rest of the family shows up, though.
Christopher Nothrop-Diwan was not invited.
"Deadbeat Dad! Boo!" Tim calls out to the crasher. Christopher is a single father of 6 and frequently gets jailed for failing to pay his child support. And he looks awfully smug about it, too.
Two of Sitara's sisters made it to the party, plus Chelsea. Kairavi's husband came without her.
And Lalita becomes a child. She gets the Handy trait, because there's all this new plumbing I'm hoping she'll wish to upgrade.
Her first wish is to be best friends with Chelsea, though, so the rest of her party is spent working on that relationship.
"Wow, I never thought middle age could look so hot!"
Kesari stalks Tim back into the house, checking out his ass.
But when she finally gets his attention, she backs off and just talks about her upcoming election. She ended up following her father into a political career.
After everyone leaves. Tim and Sitara run back to their bed for some after party woohoo. And I believe this marks the first party ever to not have any woohoo at all during the party.
I did catch Kesari's husband with the bed in this thoughtbubble a couple of times, but Kesari was always busy talking to someone she he never got to follow through, I guess.
Quality parenting. You can't really see it in the pic, but it's raining.
First plumbing breakage in the new house, and Lalita is too young to put that Handy trait to use.
Since Sitara has achieved her LTW, I can pass the torch on at any time. I had thought I might make Lalita heir, but I took a look at all the kids as YAs in CAS, and Lalita is just a clone of Sitara with Tim's eye color. And I've had enough of that, with Sitara, Kesari and Kairavi also being identical except in eye/skin/hair color. Dhanvin ages up very well, and has a nice combination of his parents' features. Kalyan is...interesting looking. In a scary kind of way. With a nose that's bigger than anything I've seen in this legacy, and a squishy face. You'll see.
So, I'm declaring now for Dhanvin, and he'll officially take over on his birthday when he's old enough to have wishes to fulfill. It will be my first time with a child age heir.
