Wendy's (not very) Big Belly

Aster: Look at you!  Thatís the cutest little belly Iíve ever seen.
Wendy:  Thank you, dear.  I wish we could stay here and celebrate that Iím eating for two, but we both have appointments at the adoption agency this morning.  You know we canít adopt when thereís an infant in the house.
Aster: *sigh* Our work is never done.  Meet you in the nursery in a few hours?
Wendy:  Deal.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  You returned from the adoption agency first which makes our son, Hypnos, the seventh child.
Wendy:  Yes, and you are holding our eighth child, Hestia.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Are you sure you donít want me to take family leave?  I feel guilty leaving my pregnant wife here with two infants.
Wendy:  Iíll be fine, dear.  Iíd hate for you to miss a day of work when you are so close to your next promotion.  Besides, I havenít had any morning sickness and the butler is here if I need him.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  We donít need any help, do we?  ĎCause youíre a good wittle nooboo, yes you are!
Hypnos:  *coos*
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Mr. Datta:  My Lady doesnít think she needs help, but she hasÖ*counts on fingers* ÖsixÖsevenÖeight children.  With another on the way!  She needs a vacation, thatís what she needs. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Mr. Datta:  Just for mílady I will do the dishes without being commanded to clean.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Athena:  We all got Aís in school!  Hooray for us!
Hermes (on right):  More like hooray for the weekend.
Ares (on left): Yeah, letís go play!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Athena:  Did you see our new brother and sister?  Arenít they the cutest things?
Ares:  Eh.  All nooboos look alike. 
Athena: No they donít! 
Ares: Uh, yes they do.  And if I were you, I wouldnít be too excited about nooboos.  Mother and Father will probably be moving you out any day now to make room for more.
Athena: Youíre crazy.  No one moves out until they are at least a teen.  And Apollo didnít move out until he was a young adult.
Ares:  If you say soÖbut you are the oldest kid in the house.  I wouldnít get too comfortable, thatís all Iím sayiní.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Ares:  Hey, Hermes.  Did you see the new babies?
Hermes:  Yeah, I saw Ďem.  Boy and a girl.
Ares:  Yep.  Reckon that means mother and father will be moving one of us out soon.
Hermes:  What are you talking about?  Nobody moves out until they are a teen.
Ares:  Are you sure?  I heard the gardener tell the butler that there were too many kids in the house.  Now, on the one hand, Athena is oldest; but sheís also a redhead and a girl and she was a top-notch toddler. 
Hermes:  And youíre a hothead.
Ares:  YeahÖsoÖprobably our relatives donít want me.  Youíre a genius.  Bet theyíd take you.
Hermes:  You donít know what youíre talking about.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Athena:  Hello!  Are you my Grandpapa Behr?
Andrew:  Yes.  And you must be my granddaughter Athena.  Itís very nice of you to mourn at my headstone almost every day.
Athena:  Iím a good sim.  I get this overwhelming urge to mourn sometimes.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  How are things with you, Athena? 
Athena:  GoodÖexceptÖ
Andrew:  Uh oh.  Whatís wrong, sweetheart?
Athena:  Ares said some thingsÖI donít know.  Heís probably lying, butÖ
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Hey Papa!  Good to see you!
Andrew:  Hello son!  I was hoping Iíd run into you tonight.
Aster:  Yeah?  Whatís up?
Andrew:  I just had a long talk with Athena.  It seems young Ares has been practicing some mischief.  *tells Aster what Athena said*  It sounds like kids just being kids, but I thought youíd want to know.
Aster:  Thanks, Papa.  Iíll nip this in the bud before it gets out of hand.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Ares!  Wake up!  Itís time to go.
Ares:  What?  Go where?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Pack your bags.  Itís time to leave.
Ares:  Leave?  Father, I donít want to go!  Iím just kid.  Iíll be good, I promise.  Please!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Whatís wrong, son?  Why would you not want to go to Granite Falls?
Ares: G-granite Falls?  I thoughtÖI thought you meantÖ
Aster: *gives a stern look*
Ares: *mumbles* I told Athena and Hermes that you and mother were going to move someone out.  I was just joking, but then I thoughtÖI meanÖ
Aster:  The problem with telling falsehoods, son, is that if you tell them often enough sometimes you start to believe them yourself.  You know that no one moves out until they are a teen and even then, itís their choice.
Ares:  Yes Father.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster: No more mischief making, okay?  And Iím serious about Granite Falls.  Want to go?
Ares:  Yes Father!

Wendy:  This is a nice surprise!  Are you sure itís okay to leave the nooboos at home?
Aster:  Of course itís okay!  Mr. Datta promised to take good care of them, and Papa said heíd take the night shift.
Wendy: Oh, if Papa Behr said heíd come out, then Iím sure itís alright.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  AhhhÖnow this is the life!  You look completely adorable in your bathing suit, by the way.
Wendy:  Thank you, dear.  There isnít actually any place to swim in Granite Falls, but swimwear seemed appropriate none-the-less.
Aster:  Completely appropriate.  And adorable.
Wendy:  You said that already.
Aster:  Itís worth repeating.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  I bought this tent at the ranger station.  I thought we could stay out here and let the kids have the cabin.
Wendy:  Itís very nice, dear.  But with our vampire weaknesses, neither of us can sleep in a tent.  Or in a bed, for that matter.
Aster:  Who said anything about sleeping?
Wendy:  Oh!  Oh, I see.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

In the eveningÖ

Aster:  Gather Ďround the fire, everyone, weíre going to have a Weenie Roast.
Wendy:  Whatís a Weenie Roast?
Aster:  Have you heard of Frankfurters?  They are also called hot dogs, or red hots, or weenies.
Wendy:  Who will roast them?  You and I both have withered stomachs.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  The kids will roast them.  You and I will hang out by the fire and add another log as necessary.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Iím so relieved that the fire didnít get out of control.  Iíve heard horror stories about these fire pits.
Aster:  I think the key is to not let any uncontrolled sims near the fire.  I only invited the five of us and we easily earned a gold medal for this party.
Hermes:  MmmÖthese are good!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Did you feel that?  Apollo and Melany must have had their fourth child.
Wendy:  How do you know?
Aster:  Because I just completed the Big Happy Family aspiration.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Wendy: *checks relationship panel*  Itís a boy!  They named him Alexander.

In the morning, birthday notices arrive for Hypnos and Hestia so the family returns home to age them up.

Wendy:  I thought Hestiaís toddler trait was Ďsilly.í  Why is she pouting?
Aster:  When I offered to read both toddlers a story, Hestia refused.  Then she immediately asked you to read to her.
Wendy:  AhhÖtoddlers.   Iíll read to silly Hestia while you read to clingy Hypnos.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Notes:  The 10-kid generation can get confusing so hereís a brief run-down of whoís in the house, just for reference:
Aster- Gen 2 heir, YA vampire
Wendy- Gen 2 spouse, YA vampire
Athena- adoption #4, child
Ares- adoption #5, child
Hermes- adoption #6, child
Hypnos- adoption #7, nooboo for most of update, toddler at the end
Hestia- adoption #8, nooboo for most of update, toddler at the end
??- Wendy is in her 3rd trimester with the 9th child and first heir candidate

Aster and Wendy's swimwear is by Lollaleeloo at TSR.

Ohhh, I absolutely love Aster and Wendy in their custom swimwear!
Wendy's a temptress, isn't she? They're such a great couple!

As for your nanny problem, after turning the nanny, she no longer comes to the Sharebear house when they phone for a nanny.
So that's one workaround if you simply want a different nanny to hire.
Regarding nannicide, I made a forum thread on that very question but received no real answers.  I guess more research is required?

The Granite Falls trip may have been a thin excuse to use the Victorian swimwear cc.   ;)  Well, that and a way to skip a day of taking care of two nooboos.

I haven't decided whether I will go for the "death point" in the Nature Category, but the old nanny would be a good candidate if I did.  Assuming that he's capable of dying, that is.  I'll keep your workaround in mind if I need to hire a new nanny.

Big Ten

Wendy: Címon, Wendy, you can do thisÖhoo...hee...hooÖheeÖ

Wendy:  Linden Behr--  youíre our ninth child and first potential heir.  I wonder if youíll be a vampire?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy: I hear you have a new sibling, Athena. 
Athena:  Yes.  Another brother.
Daisy:  Do you like being part of such a large family?
Athena:  YesÖmost of the time.   The nooboos are cute and thereís always someone to play with, butÖ
Daisy: But, what?
Athena:  It gets loud sometimesÖand crowded. 
Daisy:  I know just what you mean. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Daisy:  You have a birthday coming up, donít you?
Athena:  *nods*  Iíll be a teen in two days.
Daisy:  If you choose to move out, would you like to come live with me and your Uncle Daichi?
Athena: *eyes light up*  Could I?  Doesnít Artemis live with you and Uncle Daichi?
Daisy:  Artemis is still with us, but I think we could make room for another.   Iíll talk to your parents and see what we can work out.
Athena:  Youíre the best, Aunt Daisy!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Itís nice to finally meet my fourth grandchild.  How are you, Alexander?  *hugs*
Alexander:  No!  No hug!
Apollo:  Sorry, Mother.  Heís our fussy one.
Wendy:  Donít mention it, dear.  One of your sisters was fussy.  I understand.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
From left to right: Gracie, Matthew, Tamara, Alexander


Hermes:  I wasnít allowed to go to school today, Mother.  They said I was too sick.
Wendy:  Iím taking a sick day as well.  Do you have gas Ďn giggles like me?
Hermes:  No.  I believe mine is bloaty head.
Wendy:  Would you like me to order you some medicine or would you rather take a nap?
Hermes:  A nap, I think.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Apollo (thinking):  How is it possible that I never did the Musical Genius aspiration until now?  Iíve mastered the piano, guitar, violin, and pipe organ.  All I have to do is write four songs and Iím done.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Itís already time to get you out of that crib, Linden.  Oh look!  You have Daddyís red hair, Mommyís blue eyes, and you are a vampire!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Just a quick change of clothing and hairstyleÖmuch better.  Shall I read you a story?
Linden: Stowy!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Hello Mama!  What are you doing in that catererís outfit?
Shari:  Iím catering Athenaís birthday party, of course. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster: Yes, but why are you catering the party?  You should be a guest.
Shari:  If I cater, then you can invite more people.  And besides, I do a much better job than most hired help.  Iíve already made Athena a nice strawberry cake. 
Aster:  Okay, but next time, you are just a guest.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  See?  Iím a great caterer!  I even made a plate of sandwiches.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Daisy:  Oh my, Athena!  You are positively gorgeous!  Are you sure your parents will let you move out?
Athena: *giggles* They have to let me move.  Grandmama Behr says they need to have one more child.
Daisy:  Well, you canít argue with Mama!

Later that eveningÖ

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Iím feeling Very Confident that you are eating for two.
Wendy:  I never knew the observatory could be so much fun.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  I love your new dress and hat, by the way.
Wendy:  Thank you.  I thought it was about time I updated my wardrobe a bit.

Wendy: *looks up* UmmÖyou know, this isnít a great time for this.  It is quite possible that I am with child.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The following dayÖ

Aster:  How was your day, Wendy?
Wendy:  Exhausting.  I spent the whole morning chasing after our potential heir.
Aster:  Well, he is a wild one.  What did he get into?
Wendy:  Everything.  First, he explored the kitchen cabinets.  Then, we went out to the garden.  Next, he got into the bookcase.  And finally, I had to reprimand him for playing in the wash tub.  He made such a cute expression, though, that I could hardly keep a straight face.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  After the older kids came home from school, I gave up trying to chase after him and let him run free.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Sounds like youíve had a long day.  You relax and put your feet up, and Iíll take care of Ares and Hermesís birthday.
Wendy: Oh, thatís right.  Itís their teen birthday tonight!
Aster:  We donít need to have a big party.  Iíll just make a cake and invite the family.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Note: Two cakes are needed because Ares takes a piece of his immediately after blowing out his candles.
Ares (left) is a hot-headed dance machine.  Hermes (right) is a genius dog-lover.


Shari:  Iím so sleepy all of a sudden.  I think Iíll just lie down here behind the piano.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Grim:  Such a big crowd tonight forÖletís seeÖShari Behr.  Oh, a legacy founder.  That explains it.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hermes (in front):  Worst birthday ever.
Ares (in back): You can say that again.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Rest in peace Shari.  After being created in a lab, you were thrown back in time and asked to start a legacy before you were even given a proper name.  You leave behind three children, nine grandchildren (with a 10th due any minute), and four great-grandchildren.  You completed eight aspirations, maxed ten skills, and reached the top of the author career.  This legacy could not have asked for a better founder.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Iíll take good care of them all, Mama Behr.  I promise.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

A few hours laterÖ

Wendy:  Welcome to the world, Laurel.  Youíre our number 10.
Aster:  A perfect 10.

I'm glad you crossed to the other shore while surrounded by your beloved family. *sniffle, sniffle

Athena, Ares, and Hermes are all such handsome teens!

It's always hard to lose the founder, but I've got her saved forever in my gallery which helps.

I'm so glad to have the 10th child finally!  Part of me wants to move out all the adopted teens to decrease the household size, but then I'm afraid the aliens would abduct Aster and I'd have more heir candidates!  I don't want that to happen so the house must stay full.

Thatís Big of You

Mr. Datta:  Our whole house is mourning the loss of the Behrís founder.  Iím so distracted, I reach for Bluebellís cake and get a nasty surprise.  Anyone need an Essence of Sadness?  Of course not.  Weíre sad enough already.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Ares:  Father said I could buy myself a moodlet solver, but I donít want to.  Iím so upset about Grandmama Behrís passing that Iím just going to sadly punch this bag.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Sleep tight my three little sad toddlers.  In another day, this mood will finally pass.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
From top to bottom: Hypnos, Hestia, Linden

The next afternoonÖ

Aster:  Are you ready for another round of birthdays?  Weíve got four to celebrate this week.
Wendy:  With ten children, it seems like itís always someoneís birthday.  I made a cake for Hypnos and Hestia earlier today.  As soon as I finish giving Hestia a bath, we can start their party.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Sounds good.  Iíll just be out here playing with the birthday boy.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Okay, weíre ready to party.  Hypnos is a few minutes older so he should go first, followed by Hestia.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Hestia:  Oh no!  Mother, what happened to my hair?

Wendy:  Donít worry, sweetheart.  We can fix it.  *whisks Hestia off to a closet*
Hestia:  Thank you, Mother.  Thatís better.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Hypnos got the lazy trait while Hestia is neat.

Early the next morningÖ

Wendy:  This is a bittersweet day, Laurel.  You are my last baby and itís time to age you up.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Oh my!  You have red hair, green eyes, and you are a vampire.  You are going to have your father wrapped around your little finger for sure.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  YeahÖand sheís a charmer, too.  Thereís no hope for me.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  You arenít the only one who is smitten.  Sheís such a precious girl!

Wendy:  Itís nice to see you so soon, Mama Behr.
Shari:  Thank you, Wendy!  I like to come watch my grandchildren play.  Donít let me interrupt.  You go back to what you were doing.
Wendy:  We were just about to read a story.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

A few days laterÖ

Wendy:  Today is a very important day.
Aster:  Yes, itís Lindenís birthday!  Today is the first chance for one of our heir candidates to roll the Exemplar trait.  As the older of the two, if Linden gets Loves Outdoors; he will lock-in the title of heir.  If he gets any other trait, then itís still up for grabs.
Wendy:  Make a wish, big boy!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  I see a lot of sparkles, but what is his trait?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  Heís creative.  Thatís a good, solid trait that will serve him well.
Wendy:  I agree.  And itís kind of exciting to think that the heirship is still undecided.

Aster:  He got Rambunctious Scamp as his first aspiration.  Thatís an easy one.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Speaking of aspirations, Hermes finished Freelance Botanist.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Good for him!  That aspiration has been done many times, but now Hermes is free to pick something else. 
Wendy:  Thatís true.  And Ares actually has a good suggestion.
Aster:  Ares has a suggestion for Hermes?
Wendy:  For all of us, really.  Ares?
Ares:  Well, father, Hermes is a dog-lover.  So I thought, if itís okay, that I could move and let Hermes get a dog.  He could do Friend of the Animals which would help the legacy.  Right?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  HmmÖyou make a good point, son.  Friend of the Animals still needs to be done.  Thatís very generous of youóoffering to move out so your brother can get a dog.
Ares:  Well, Hermes is my best-friend since we were adopted at the same time and all.  Iíd like to do this for him.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hermes:  Hello Link!  Would you like to live with us?
Link: *sniffs hand*

Hermes:(thinking) I canít believe they let me get a dog!

Note:  Link is a Basenji with the Troublemaker, Friendly, and Vocal traits.  I donít know how a Basenji can be vocal, but whatever.  Hermes picked the cutest dog from the list of available pets and adopted him as soon as Linkís Troublemaker trait was discovered.

Actually Linden has blue eyes (like Wendy) and Laurel's are green (like Aster).  They probably both look the same in screenshots, though.
I'm glad you like the birthdays because there seem to be a lot of them with this generation.  Laurel's child birthday coming up!

Whatís the Big Deal?

Hypnos:  Why do I have to learn chess, Father?  Iím not even an heir candidate.
Aster:  Mental skill isnít just for heirs, son.  Donít you want to finish your Whiz Kid aspiration?
Hypnos:  Well, itís my third aspiration soÖ
Aster:  So?  If chess isnít your thing, Iíll take you and Linden fishing after the party.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Hypnos:  Party?  Whose birthday is it today?
Aster:  Itís Laurelís birthday.  Youíd better go change into your party clothes before the guests arrive.

Wendy:  Happy Birthday, baby-girl!

Linden:  Welcome to the big kid table, sis.
Laurel:  Thank you.  *whispers*  Who are all these people?  And why are they here?
Linden:  Theyíre all of our relatives.   Theyíre here for the party Ďcause youíre a potential heir, like me.
Hypnos: MmmÖchocolate cake!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Laurel: All these people are related to us?
Linden:  Yep.  Older siblings and cousins, mostly.  Some are our nieces and nephews.  Itís kind of complicated.  Maybe youíd better ask Mother and Father to explain it.

Aster:  Well, boys, how do you like fishing?
Hypnos:  I suppose itís better than chess.
Linden:  I like it!  Iíve never seen the lighthouse from this side before.

Aster:  We came across the bay so that Hermes could meet more dogs and cats.  Apparently, a lot of strays hang out by the lighthouse.

Back at the houseÖ

Hestia:  Iím so glad you aged-up, Laurel.  Itís fun having a sister to play with.
Laurel:  Donít we have older sisters?
Hestia: Yeah, but they all moved out before you were even born.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Laurel:  Are you my Grandpapa Behr?
Andrew:  Yes.  And you must be my youngest granddaughter.  How was your birthday?
Laurel:  It was fun.
Andrew:  May I ask what your childhood trait is?
Laurel:  Iím an art lover, just like Mother and Father.  Is that good?
Andrew:  Yes, thatís a very nice trait.  I was an artist, you know.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  You are doing a great job on that drawing, Laurel!  Your creativity is already at level 8 after only two pictures.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Laurel:  Hey, Linden.  Are you doing Artistic Prodigy, too?
Linden:  Yeah, itís my third aspiration.  Just one more drawing and then I get to practice a musical instrument for five hours.
Laurel:  When do we sleep?
Linden:  We donít.  We just rally the troops.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  AhhÖthis brings back memories of when your father used to mentor you, Aster.
Aster:  Yeah.  Linden is even playing the same violin I used to practice on.

The next morningÖ

Wendy:  This is the Oasis Springs park, kids.  What do you think of it?
Laurel:  Itís so big!
Linden: Do we really get to play here all day?
Wendy:  Yes.  Play and have fun.  Just remember to make friends with three other kids and two adults while weíre here.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Did everyone remember to make a best friend forever?
Laurel:  Hess and I are already best friends!
Hypnos:  *shyly* UhÖI forgot. Linden?
Linden:  No problem, Hypnos!  Now letís go play!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  How is it possible that our four youngest children are all working on Social Butterfly at the same time?
Wendy:  Weíre efficient, darling.
Aster: And lucky!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  I was worried that there might not be many children here today, but there are more than enough.
Aster:  Three of our four grandchildren are hereóAlex, Gracie, and Tamara.
Wendy:  Yes, and there are also three new boysóSai, Tetsu, and Ali.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy: Linden was the first to finish Social Butterfly.  Since heís done with all the childhood skills and aspirations, I suggested that he fish in the pond.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Laurel is done, too, so Iím mentoring her while she plays chess with Gracie.  She's gaining both social and mental skills.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  That was a fun day at the park, but itís good to be home.
Aster:  Why are there so many dogs at our house?
Wendy:  Hermes needs to meet more pets for his Friend of the Animals aspiration.  We turned on the Dog Hangout lot trait to make it easier.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Is it working?
Hermes:  It seems to help.  And donít worry, Father, Iíll clean up after them.
Aster: I hope so!

Monday morningÖ

Laurel:  Itís finally my first day of school.  Do you think I can earn an A today?
Hestia:  Probably, Ďcause youíre really smart.  Youíve already finished two aspirations.
Hypnos:  Whatís the big deal with grades and skills and aspirations?
Hestia:  Weíre Behrs.  We are supposed to do all that stuff.
Hypnos:  Well, Iím lazy and Iím getting tired of all that stuff.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hestia:  Hypnos might be lazy, but I am not.  Iím going to do my extra credit.  Maybe if I work hard enough, I can stay here forever!
Mr. Datta:  Well done, young Hess.

In the afternoonÖ

Aster:  Business is booming!  Iíve reached the top of another career.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hermes:  I know I shouldnít do this, but the cake looks sooooo good.

Wendy:  Hermes!  When I asked you to feed Bluebell, that is not what I meant!

Oh my goodness, I am so glad I finally caught up with this story. The Behrs are still so precious, I love it. So sorry about Sheri but hey, she can still hang out with the grandchildren when the mood strikes. Wow, Laurel and Linden are cute. I'm glad that the heirship hasn't been settled yet, just means that I have time to enjoy everyone working together and being all lovely for a while longer without worrying about that. Just curious, if Laurel rolls Loves the Outdoors before Linden, she gets to be heir, correct? Even if he then rolls it (ie, she rolls the trait at Teen, he rolls it at YA)? Either one of them looks like they'll be carrying on the family's artistic legacy just fine. Congrats on Aster's second career!

I'm glad you are still enjoying the Behrs.  That's a good question about the heirship.  The way I interpret the rule, Laurel could only be heir if she rolls Loves the Outdoors and Linden doesn't roll it at all.  Basically, if one potential heir gets the Exemplar trait, then that one is the heir.  If none or both of the potential heirs get the trait, then it goes to the eldest.  It kind of gives an advantage to the older child, I guess.  Although I have used the Exemplar Law before in another legacy, and I had several younger siblings as heirs.

Like many others, I've been reluctant to play my Legacy file since the latest patch.  Fortunately, I was a little ahead so I've got three, maybe even four updates that I can post.  Hopefully the worst of the bugs will be fixed by the time I get caught up.

Big Dog, Little Dog

Seagulls:  You know weíre bigger than you, right?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  How are you doing with your Friend of the Animals aspiration, Hermes?
Hermes:  Okay, I guess.  Link is supposed to be a troublemaker, but he isnít misbehaving much.  In the meantime, Iíve maxed the pet training skill and Iím working on the veterinary skill.

Later that day...

Hestia:  I saw Mother baking a cake.  Do you think itís for us?
Hypnos:  Who else would it be for?  I wish Mother would hurry up and start our birthday party.
Hestia:  Sheís probably waiting for Father to get home from work.
Hypnos:  I donít know why Father keeps working.  He doesnít have to.
Hestia: Not everyone is as lazy as you.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Iím home!  Who is ready for a birthday party?
Hestia:  I am!
Hypnos: Letís have cake!
Aster:  Okay, normally we would let ladies go first, but Hypnos is older.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hestia: I donít mind going second.  *makes a wish* 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Now that you two have had a chance to change your clothes and fix your hair, letís sit down and talk.  What are your traits and aspirations?
Hestia:  I added foodie to my neat trait, and I want to be a Master Mixologist.
Wendy:  Thatís very nice, Hess.  What about you, Hypnos?
Hypnos:  Iím gloomy and lazy, and I want a Successful Lineage.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  Well, HypnosÖthose traitsÖwith that aspirationÖ
Aster:  If you wanted to leave, son, you could have just said so.
Hypnos:  I just donít think Iím cut out for legacy life.
Wendy:  Weíll miss you, honey, but I understand that this life isnít for everyone.
Hypnos:  Thank you, Mother.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster (quietly to Wendy): Iím glad that Hess wants to stay, but I donít know if I like the idea of her being a bartender.
Wendy:  Why not?  Mixology is a skill, aspiration, and career.
Aster:  Thatís true, but Iíd still rather not have her working in a bar.
Wendy:  Well, she wonít get a job until sheís a young adult so you have time to get used to the idea.

Hermes:  Father said I could adopt another dog to help me finish my aspiration sooner, and I know just the dog.  Would you like to live with us Belle?
Belle:  Woof!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Belle is an Afghan Hound who is friendly, vocal, and a hunter.

Hermes:  Letís take you to the vet to cure your red nose.  Oh, and it looks like you need to be spayed, too.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Link (thinking):  It was kind of Master to adopt a friend for me, but why is she so big and funny looking?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  How is the new dog working out, Hermes?
Hermes:  Sheís great!  Both Belle and Link are friendly so they get along well.
Aster:  And your aspiration?
Hermes:  Iím making progress.  I trained out three more misbehaviors in Link and one in Belle.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hermes:  The part Iím stuck on now is ďFeel the Love with 8 different pets.Ē  Many of the animals in our neighborhood are sick, and I cannot Feel the Love unless they are happy.  Iíve tried inviting strays to visit our home, but many of them have arrived sick.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Aster:  Can you cure them with wellness treats?
Hermes:  Iíll try.

The next morning:

Laurel:  Do you know which one of us Mother is mentoring right now?
Linden:  HmmÖitís probably you, but we both gain skills faster whenever Mother or Father is around.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Laurel:  Shouldnít we be getting ready for school?
Linden:  Weíre not going to school today.  Father said we are taking the day off.
Aster:  Thatís right.  Today we are visiting all of our extended family.  As the potential heirs, it is important for you two to meet everyone.  First, we will visit your Aunt Daisy.  Your older sisters, Athena and Artemis live with her.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Next, we will visit your Uncle Fig.  You may not have met your cousins, Kara and Britney, even though they have been to your birthday parties.  It looks like Ares is home, too.   
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Linden:  Where are we going now, Mother?
Wendy:  Now weíre going to a special place called Sylvan Glade.  Your grandmother showed your father the secret entrance when he was a boy.  Now, your father is going to teach you how to get in.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Laurel:  Oh, itís beautiful! 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  This is a great place to fish.  Why donít you try it?
Laurel:  I want to fish by the waterfall.
Linden:  I want to try fishing in the pond.

Back at home:

Shari:  Did you two enjoy your day off?
Linden and Laurel:  Yes!
Shari:  Good!  And let me be the first to wish you a Happy Birthday, Linden.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Laurel:  She wasnít eating your birthday cake, was she?
Linden:  I hope not.

Later that day:

Everyone:  Happy Birthday Linden!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Hestia:  Oh yeah!  This is what I was born to do!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wendy:  WellÖdonít keep me in suspense.  What is your new trait, Linden?
Linden:  Iím a perfectionist, like you. 
Wendy:  Thatís wonderful!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Note:  Linden is a creative perfectionist with the Leader of the Pack aspiration. 

Aster: How was your first day as a vampire, son?
Linden:  The vampire powers are nice, but I was a little disappointed that I couldnít eat any of my own birthday cake.
Aster:  Itís unfortunate the way that happens.  You know, you donít have to remain a vampire if you decide the lifestyle isnít for you.
Linden:  I know.  Iíll think about it.
