Oooh! So many good suggestions. I want to have another stab at this. Is it Coco Chanel?

Wow, so many good guesses, but none of them right. Marilyn and Grace were contenders though, funny you thought of them.

Audrey (Hepburn), Dianna (Princess of Wales), Mary (the Tasmanian girl who married into royalty), Kate (Middleton - Prince William's wife) or Nicole (Kidman)?

Audrey and Nicole are getting warmer, at least it's in the same profession, but not nearly classic enough.

You said not classic enough but the same profession so I'm going with Elizabeth(Taylor) or any close variation on the name.

Chapter 151: I've been expecting you
« Reply #409 on: October 29, 2012, 06:50:59 PM »
After my (or should I say our) trip to the spa, I decided I needed a nap. It was mostly an excuse to finally get some private time. Once the nooboo is here I'm locking myself in the cellar. Oh, how I long to get back to work! Even carpooling is looking good about now.

Anyway, I was snoozing quite comfortably when something disturbed my sleep. I was rather disoriented at first...



...what woke me up. Oh, is that? Yes, I believe my daughter is about to make an appearance.


Aaagh, I didn't think it would hurt this much...


Or go on this long, it's been nearly five hours. Her head must be enormous, maybe she's an unicorn?


Wait, what's happening?


Finally, the sparkles have come to deliver me from bondage!


Here she is. Isn't she beautiful? Just like her mother...


Welcome to the world Greta Aurora McClelland. She's athletic and brave, she's going to need it growing up in this madhouse.

She's named after one of out favorite actresses on the Romantic Rendevouz channel - Greta Garbo. I felt she'd need a classy and classic name to go with her destiny of bringing the last generation of Auroras into this world.



I put her down for a quick nap before her father came home, and while we scrambled to decorate her nursery.


I thought it was fine the way it was, but the grandmas insisted on Greta having a more colorful childhood than me. I don't understand why, I mean, I turned out just fine. Why mess with perfection?


Stuart was appropriately impressed with my performance, and gave me just the kind of reward I was expecting.


Julia: Flowers too?
Stuart: You deserve this and so much more, she's beautiful. A perfect little princess.
Julia: Princess?
Stuart: Of course, the heir is always a princess isn't she?
Julia: Dethroned by my own daughter! Don't tell me I look old.
Stuart: You are as beautiful as ever.
Julia: Don't you forget to tell me that!
Stuart: Not a day will go by.
Julia: Good! Fine, she can be the princess for now on. As long as I get to be queen.
Stuart: You'll always be the queen of my heart.
Julia: And you're the king of my dreams. Wanna go next door and make out?
Stuart: Why don't you get ready? I'll just tuck our princess in.
Julia: I'll be waiting in our chamber, your majesty.



Stuart: Who's my perfect little princess? You are, my perfect little princess, and I love you more than anything in this world. Just don't tell your mommy, she might get jealous.
Julia: Stuart! Are you coming?
Stuart: In a moment, my queen. Remember, daddy loves you princess.
Greta: dada dada dada dada

Oh Greta! Welcome to the nut house, Greta.

Sorry, Saltpastillen, I have long since had a thing for Nicole Kidman ... I always knew that she was too good for Tom Cruise ... it was a childhood crush that I never grew out of. :)

That's fine, I have a thing for the ladies of the silver screen (back in the time while it was still silver and not color).

Favorite line. Welcome home, Greta! You're going to need bravery to survive a house of immortal senior citizen ladies . . .

No fair play, Salty!   >:(
Greta Garbo was born in Stockholm. How can that be 'exotic' when you are swedish yourself?
Only joking - lol!
Welcome, little Greta! :)

Welcome Greta! I was thinking of the actress but couldn't remember her name lol.
Let's just hope she didn't develop the loner trait. ;)

That would be very bad indeed, considering there are already seven sims in the house and the fact that she needs to meet someone to help her get gen 8 into the world.

It's a good thing I don't need traits to be random. ;)

Chapter 152: I'm happy, very happy, quite content
« Reply #418 on: October 30, 2012, 10:25:18 AM »
Mom spent a lot of time cooing over Greta. All the grandmas did actually, and it was nice to have time to work on my nectar making skills. It really was. I'm serious, I enjoyed not being the center of attention anymore. I didn't miss it one bit. I was happy, very happy, quite content. You don't believe me?

I love my baby girl, and I love having help caring for her. It's just, I feel like no one sees me as just me anymore. I'm just Greta's mom, and the grandmas are already talking about her choosing a skill and getting a job. She's not even a toddler yet! And I haven't completed all of my requirements. I just thought I'd still get some attention, you know? Not that I'm jealous or anything...

Frida: Who's my little princess?



Oh, come on! Little princess? You never called me that!

Frida: You're my little princess.



You'd have thought Greta was a rugby ball, the way all the grandmothers were always hauling her around the house.


She was lucky to get some shut eye once in a while, next to her mummy bear that grandma E got from the Claw.


No family gathering was complete unless Greta was present, we couldn't even watch TV without Stuart or one of the grandmas insiting on Greta joining in. It was starting to become silly, I mean, a nooboo wasn't really that aware of what was going on around her, so she would have been just as happy in her swing or crib. But try telling that to the mad horde.


I was so happy once Greta's toddler birthday came around. Even happier than I had been on my YA birthday, and that should tell you I was several levels past ecstatic.


Once the sparkles had enveloped her I received a terrible shock. My child was deformed! Mayday, mayday we need a mirros ASAP. I can't expose her to the world completely bald! I hope this is as bad as it gets, I wont have my child suffer. If I send her to school looking like this she'll be exposed to someone far worse than Candi.


I was relieved to find out that the mirrors magic could solve this problem. Once she had some hair she was very pretty. And looking so much like her dad. I don't know if she has any of my families features, right now it all seems to be Stuart. From his hair color to his blue green eyes. Maybe her mouth will be like mine? I hope the McClelland genes haven't completely usurped the Aurora genes.


We dressed her in a fiery orange, she is bold and brave after all. Let's hope she'll develop a vibrant personality, she'll need it to make herself heard in this dynasty house.


Grandma E hopped right in with the potty training, that was one skill neither Stuart or I was particularly eager to teach or daughter,


Grandma K got Greta a block table for her birthday, bus she seems more interested in eating the blocks than building with them.


No matter her building skills, she is always happy to play with her new toy.


Greta and I have some things in common, like our love for attention, and the ingrained ability to pose for photos and getting what we want by being cute.


She's more of a hearty eater than a picky one, I guess we won't share my love for nectar.


One thing breeds true for all Auroras, the magic pull of the toy box.

Aww Greta is cute...once she got some hair on that head! :P But yes, she is pretty much Stuart's twin. What's going to be her supermax skill and job?

She'll probably end up doing either inventing or handiness, I haven settled on a job yet. I'm pulling towards handiness, because I could use some easy skill to SuperMax (with doable challenges) after my fight with that darn Vizard of Vine.

I love handiness as a Supermax. I think Fire fighting would be a good choice as a career. because I find it really easy to max and you haven't had athletic as a Supermax so that wouldn't be a problem.

Military would be a good option if you want it easy, only handiness and athletic needed, plus once you reach the top she will only have to work one day a week.

Both military and firefighting aren't difficult to max. I'd advise against firefighting at this point--it's incredibly easy to max, but needs a lot of attention--I usually prefer to play that when there's only one or two sims in the house!

Chapter 153: Grandmas training regime
« Reply #424 on: October 31, 2012, 07:58:15 AM »
I went back to work, and let me tell you, it was amazing. There was just one little complication, but I'll tell you more about it later. I also got the Office Hero LTR, just to make raising in the ranks smoother. My little girl spent her days playing. I really miss the time and carefreeness of toddlerhood.


Mom was put in charge of taking care of Greta, otherwise she'd be completely mobbed by all the old ladies. They seem to have found each other.


Mom says she's teaching Greta invaluable life skills,  things that will make sure she'll never be stalked or bullied in school. I just wonder why she couldn't teach them to me.

Frida: Come on, try to hiding it from grandma just like I taught you.



Frida: You're going to have to do better trying to hide your candy, princess. Now, let's try it one more time.
Greta: Nooooooo!
Frida: Yes, we are going to do this until you've learned how to keep people from stealing your stuff. I never taught your mother, and just look at what happened to her. Now, toughen up princess and hide that candy.



Stuart is teaching Greta to walk, something she's been interested in forever. I just know that as soon as she learns how, we'll have to run around making sure she doesn't get in trouble.


He's also been helping me with some repairs down in my cellar. But, he's not at the same level as my dad was, so he's had a few accidents.


Considering the amount of enthusiasm Greta had shown while learning to walk, I was rather looking forward to teaching her to talk. I mean, how hard could it be? I've since realized getting her to talk wasn't the hard bit, making her understand what was expected of her was.

Julia: And once you've chosen your skill, LTW, and LTR's you just need a career and you're almost set.
Greta: Career?
Julia: A job, like I do at the business building.



Greta: Easy, I'll be a movie star!
Julia: No, I don't think that'll work.
Greta: But I want to be a movies star! I wanna be in the movies all the grandmas watch all the time.
Julia: The nearest film studio is in Bridgeport, so I don't think so.
Greta: Grandma K can buy me a film studio, then I'll be a movie star.
Julia: There won't be a film studio, so no movie star!
Greta: Unfair!



Julia: Besides, being in the movies is dangerous, you don't want a dangerous job do you. Maybe you could work at the Bistro?
Greta: I like danger, it's glamorous. I will not work at the Bistro!
Julia: What about the diner? Think about it, food and nectar paired together. We could make it a theme restaurant and name it mother and daughter.
Greta: I want danger and excitement, food is boring. I want fire and destruction and adventure!
Julia: Moooooom! What have you done to my daughter?



Frida: I don't know what you are talking about dear. Greta seems like a normal well adjusted girl to me. Oh wait. whats that? It's the Claaaaaaaaaaaaw!


Greta: Hihi, I love the Claw, do it again. Do it again!


Frida: Now, what do you say about us going to talk to grandma S about her time in the tombs?
Greta: Real tombs?
Frida: Actual tombs.
Greta: I want grandma S NOW!
