Bluebell's commentary on Fig's failed first proposal cracked me up, LOL.
I'm glad Fig managed to pull his self-esteem back together to propose again.

Congrats to your Behrs for completing Grilled Cheese, Bodybuilder, and Family Vampire as well as the Musician career!
How cool that Evie gave birth to a blueboo!
Oooh, Shari and Andrew are elders now! Awwww, did they cake up on the same day? <3
Hah, I can't blame you for focusing on Fig and Evie helping out with Big Happy Family!
Shari & Andrew only need one more grandkid now, right?

Well, all I can say is that it's a good thing Aster and Wendy are vampires, because I imagine they've started the 10 kids "ordeal," haha.
Best wishes to Fig and Evie! They made a handsome couple at their wedding, too!
(I liked how Fig stood waiting in front of the wedding arch as Evie walked up to him.)

Congrats to Fig and Evie finally getting married and with already a blueboo. Yes, they deserve their happiness.

And discret Daisy maxing aspirations and skills in the background. There's one more room in the house now?

Evie's refusal of Fig's first proposal was a complete shock!  All I can figure is that she was feeling uncomfortable from her pregnancy.  I had Fig do a lot of positive socials before I let him propose again.

Shari and Andrew did age up on the same day.  Andrew was originally a few days younger.  However, after Shari's two pregnancies and Andrew's one pregnancy, they ended up with the same birthday (which was pretty cool!)  And yes, just one more grandkid for Big Happy Family. 

Congrats to Fig and Evie finally getting married and with already a blueboo. Yes, they deserve their happiness.

I was very happy that Fig and Evie got a blueboo.   
Yes, Fig moving out left one space in the house. 

Fig and Evie are so cute togehter. Good we got a blue boo, hoping for one more :)
Fingers crossed for a 2nd blueboo!

Daisyís Big Day

Andrew:  Ahhh!  It feels good to reach the top of my second career.  Iím going to burn this beret and never work another day in my life!
20.1 Andrew career.jpg

Aster:  Hey, Papa! Iím glad youíre home.  Come say hello to your newest granddaughter.
Andrew:  Sheís a beauty.  Whatís her name?
Aster:  NikeÖafter the goddess of victory.
Andrew:  Really?  Well, she helped me finally complete Big Happy Family so thatís a victory of sorts.
20.2 Andrew BHF.jpg

Aster:  You were bound to complete that aspiration soon anyway.  Have you seen Evie lately?
20.3 Evie pregnant.jpg

Aster
(thinking to himself):  I really donít think I should have to command my butler to pick up those dirty dishes that are right by his feet, but since I just became a Grand Master Vampire, Iíll let it slide.
20.4 Commant clean.jpg

Artemis:  Do we really get to take the whole day off from school, Mama Behr?
Shari:  Yes!  I promised that once you earned an A you wouldnít have to go back to grade school.
Artemis:  Where are we?  Iíve never seen this house.
Shari:  This is the Von Haunt Estate.  Itís where your mother and father got married.  I thought you and Apollo might like to explore the garden maze.
20.5 No school.jpg

Apollo:  You go left and Iíll go right.
Artemis: Okay, but where are we going?
Apollo:  I donít know.  Just go!
20.6 maze start.jpg

Artemis:  Daddy!  How did you get to the middle of the maze ahead of us?
Apollo:  Isnít it obvious?  He can fly as a bat now.
20.7 maze end.jpg

Daisy
(to herself):  Iíve got a good feeling tonight.  I think Iíll make my one and only lifetime wish.
20.8 wishing well.jpg
Daisy: HmmÖIím not scheduled to work again until next week, but I guess a guaranteed promotion is still pretty good.   

Daichi: I came over as soon as I got your message, Daisy.  Whatís up?
Daisy:  I was hoping we could make this official.  Daichi, will you marry me?
20.9 Daisy propose.jpg
Daichi:  Wow!  I meanÖyes!  And wow.

A few days laterÖ

Aster:  Come to Daddy, Nike.  You can do it, big girl!
Wendy:
*sigh* They grow up so fast.  Didn't we just bring her home?
20.10 Nike toddler.jpg

Artemis:  Is that cake for us?
Apollo:  Yep.  Mommy had to go to work, but she said we could blow out the candles as soon as we got our birthday notices.
20.11 child to teen.jpg

Artemis:  Shouldnít Mama and Papa Behr be here telling us to start our high school homework?
Apollo:  I think they are getting ready for a date.  Papa Behr got his first notice from Grim yesterday.

Shari:  Do you remember the first time we met, Andrew?
Andrew:  Of course, I do!  You were sitting in that chair by the bookshelves when I walked through the door.
20.12 library memory.jpg
Shari:  Oh, Andrew!  I almost wish I hadnít earned the Long-Lived trait.  Then, I wouldnít have to live without you.
Andrew:  Donít say that, Shari!  Our children and grandchildren still need you.  And Iíll come back to haunt you as often as I can.
Shari: Promise?
Andrew:  Cross my unflirty heart.
20.13 Library date.jpg

 Wendy:  HmmÖyou would think that reaching the top of my career would make me happy, but that doesnít seem to be the case.  Oh well, at least now Iíll have more time to focus on my aspiration.
20.14 Wendy sad career.jpg

Wendy:  SoooooÖDaniel.  As my brother, I think you should allow me to drink with permission.  In return, Iíll give you a makeover and do something about those pink eyebrows of yours.
Daniel:  Deal.  But make it quick, I donít handle pain well.
20.15 Daniel.jpg

Wendy:  You know, elderly Ms. Vann didnít complain about any pain when she let me drink from her wrist.
20.16 Tyler Vann.jpg

Daniel:  Well, good for her.  Now tell me, how do I look?
Wendy:  Much better.
20.17 makeover.jpg

 The next dayÖ

Daisy:  Whatís wrong, Papa?  You donít look so good.
Andrew:  You might as well knowÖI got my final notice this morning. 
20.18 final notice.jpg

Daisy:  Hey Aster!  Do you have a sec?
Aster:  Sure, Daisy.  But first, look at what I got for your wedding.  Itís a phonograph!
20.19 phonograph.jpg
Daisy: Oh!  Thatís really nice!  And thatís what I wanted to talk to you about.  The wedding, I mean.  Do you think we could have it soonerÖlike today?  Papa just got his final notice.
Aster: He did?
His final notice?
Daisy: Yes.
Aster: Okay. Iíll see what I can do, but what about Daichi?
Daisy:  Heíll be there!   

And now a few words from Bluebell, the family cowplantÖ

Bluebell:  Moo.  Mmmoo. MooÖooÖmoo.  Moo!
*translation* That Daisy is the sweetest girl. She moved up her wedding date so that her father could be here to witness her marriage.  And out of all the kids, sheís the only one who invited me to her wedding.  What a beautiful day!

20.20 Daisy1.jpg

20.21 Daisy2.jpg

20.22 Daisy3.jpg

20.23 Daisy4.jpg

20.24 Daisy5.jpg

Notes:
Shari and Andrew's age bars are both bubbling, but Shari earned the long-lived trait so I'm not worried about her yet.  Just Andrew.
Daisy will not move out until she completes her career on her next shift.
Daisyís wedding dress is the Ester wedding dress by Historical Sims Life.
My timeline is very rough, but Iíve been mostly using Victorian clothing so far.  Iíve downloaded some Edwardian clothing for Gen 3 (also by Historical Sims Life).

Andrew has been such a wonderful sim in his many family roles and social outings.
So much has happened since Shari and Andrew first met!
Did Shari finish Big Happy Family along with Andrew?

Congrats to Daisy getting the "guaranteed promotion"--it's quite nice to know one can just coast to the next promotion.
Daisy & Daichi's wedding was lovely! She looks lovely in that wedding gown!
Loved little Nike in her red party dress, curled up asleep in the front row.

The Behrs have really grown as a family, both in size and talent!

Grim, don't take Andrew please... He still has a lot to see and do, and it's always hard to see the founder's husband die... Also I like the idea of getting rid of his beret. That career was really not up to his taste, right?

Appolo looks a lot like him.

And it's nice of Daisy and Daichi to get married so he can see his last child's wedding.

Only Andrew was able to complete Big Happy Family because the game does not recognize Shari as Fig's mother. *sad trombone*  So Shari only has 2 kids as far as the game mechanics are concerned.  Hopefully both Aster & Wendy can do BHF soon so the gen 3 heir candidates will get maximum benefit.

I thought little toddler Nike stole the show at Daisy and Daichi's wedding.  I told her to sit along with the other wedding guests, but it took her a while to get there and she immediately went to sleep.    :)

Oh no it's gonna be sad to see Andrew go in the next few updates :/ at least Shari will still around a little bit

Our butler has gotten 'slightly' better at doing the dishes (with lots of praise) but I've completely given up on maids!

Aww....here's a tissue.  I think you might need it for the next update.
Daisy's wedding went pretty well.  I usually don't get that many sims sitting for the ceremony.

I was lucky I could move up Daisy's wedding without causing anyone to miss work.  @oshizu is correct that Aster's kids are all adopted so far although I can see why you and @Tynynounours would say that Apollo looks like his grandpa Andrew (especially with the screenshots I chose for the last update).

Big Shoes to Fill

Immediately after Daisyís gold medal wedding, Shari, Andrew, and Daisy make a few social calls.  First, they make a brief stop at the McClures.

21.1 McClures1.jpg
21.2 McClures2.jpg

Then they call on Fig and Evie.

Fig:  Hey!  Long time no see.  Shouldnít you be on your honeymoon right now, Daisy?
Daisy:  As if you didnít know that I wonít actually move out until I max my career.
21.3 Fig visit.jpg

Andrew:  Weíre here because your mother couldnít wait another minute to meet her newest grandboo and to see Kara after she aged up.

21.4 Grandbabies.jpg
Note: Britney (the nooboo) was conceived at Fig and Evieís reception, and toddler Kara was born the day before their wedding.

Daisy:  Can we make one more stop before we go home?  I want to show Papa where Daichi and I will live when I move out.
Andrew:  Itís very nice, Daisy.  Itís good to know that all three of my children have done well for themselves.
21.5 Daisy house.jpg

After returning home, there is still no sign of Grim so the family goes about their business as usual.

Andrew mentors Apollo on piano:
21.6 piano mentor.jpg

Wendy shows flashcards to Nike:
21.7 flashcards.jpg

Daisy and Aster each complete a collection within minutes of each other:

21.8 microscope.jpg

21.9 spaceprints.jpg

Finally, in the wee hours of the morning, the time comesÖ
21.10 Andrew death.jpg
Before he goes, Andrew contributes 10 potions of youth to the legacy and deposits a moodlet solver in each of his household membersí inventories.

In memory of Andrew Franklin Behr: an exemplary primary spouse and father of three children. He completed five lifetime aspirations including the time-consuming Big Happy Family aspiration as well as two creative aspirations.  Andrew mastered several skills and reached the top of both the Patron of the Arts and Art Critic careers.  Shari could not have chosen a better primary spouse to start this legacy.  He will be sorely missed.
21.11 Andrew memory.jpg

As a new day dawns, a new life enters the Behr household.  Welcome Athena Behr, fourth adopted child of Wendy and Aster.
21.12 Athena.jpg

Apollo:  Hey sis!  We just earned our Aís in high school.  Why arenít you happy?
Artemis:  I miss Papa Behr!
21.13 Artemis sad.jpg

Daisy:  *looks up at the sky* Thank you, Papa, wherever you are.  That moodlet solver you left me really helped.  I got my guaranteed promotion today, as expected.  My final career outfit is utterly ridiculous, but it doesnít matter because I'm moving out today.
21.14 Daisy career.jpg

Wendy:  Congratulations on your promotion, Daisy.  Donít be a stranger, okay?
Daisy:  Oh, I wonít be.  Iím still in the family club so youíll see me all the time.
Wendy:  And thanks for taking Artemis with you.  Sheís really having a hard time since Papa Behrís death, and I think a change of scenery is just what she needs.
21.15 Daisy leaves.jpg

Daisy:  Daichi and I are happy to have Artemis come live with us.  Are you sure Apollo wouldnít like to come, too?
Wendy:  Apollo has found a reason to stay.  *smiles knowingly* Itís the girl-next-door.
Daisy:  Little Melany McClure?  Daughter of Betsy and granddaughter of Evelyn?
Wendy:  Thatís the one, although sheís not so little anymore.  Sheís a teen, just like Apollo.
21.16 Melany.jpg
Daisy:  Melany looks so much like her mother!

Before leaving, Daisy empties her personal inventory and buys 15 potions of youth for the legacy.  She, Daichi, and Artemis move to their new home which was built for them on the Hindquarter Hideaway lot. 
21.17 new house.jpg


Late that nightÖ

Shari:  Oh, Andrew!  What am I going to do without you?
21.18 mourning.jpg

Andrew:  You arenít without me.  Iím right here, darling.
Shari:  Andrew!  You came!
Andrew:  I promised I would.

Andrew was such a great spouse and parent! I'm happy that he returned to visit Shari so soon!

Oh, big plans for Artemis and the girl next door! *waggles eyebrows
Meanwhile, I count 4 adoptees so far plus another household vacancy after Daisy moved out!
Almost halfway there!

You're doing a great job with earning points, too!

It was nice to see Andrew right away.  Everyone was mourning him so that probably helped bring him out.

Yep, we've got 4 adoptees after the last update.  Daisy took teen Artemis with her leaving two open spots.  You've probably already figured out the plan for Apollo/Melany.  For anyone who hasn't, it will be clear after this next update.  :D

A Growing Family

Daichi:  Hello, Mama Behr.  Itís nice to see you.
Shari:  Itís nice to see you, too, Daichi.  Are you ready to help us celebrate back-to-back birthdays today?
Daichi:  I think so, but you may have to help me with names.  I have a hard time keeping all of Aster and Wendyís kids straight.
Shari: *laughs* Iíd be happy to help.
22.1 Party intro.jpg

Shari: Letís start with the birthday girl.  Thatís Athena.  Sheís Aster and Wendyís fourth child.
Daichi: Athena. Got it.
22.2 Athena cake.jpg

Shari:  Oh, how nice!  Athena aged-up in an acceptable dress.  We donít even have to make her over right away.
Daichi:  Who is the girl in the red dress sitting in front of Athena and Aster?
22.3 Athena child.jpg

Shari:  Thatís Nike, Aster and Wendyís third child.  Donít you remember her?  Sheís the toddler who fell asleep at your wedding.
Daichi:  Nike.  Okay.  Did I miss her child birthday party?
Shari:  Itís possible we didnít hold a birthday party.  Things were a little crazy there for a while with Fig getting married, then DaisyÖand obviously Andrewís deathÖ
Daichi:  Iím sorry, I didnít mean to bring that up.
Shari:  Oh no, dear, itís okay.  Where was I?  Oh, so when Daisy moved out and took Artemis with her, Aster and Wendy adopted two boysóAres and Hermes. 
22.4 toddlers and nooboos.jpg
 
Daichi:  Run that by me againÖ
Shari:  *smiles*  I know itís a lot to keep track of.  Nike was adopted after Fig moved out.  Athena joined us after we lost Andrew.   Ares and Hermes were adopted when Daisy and Artemis moved out.  Like I said, it gets crazy at times. At one point, we had three toddlers in the house, but nothing seems to phase Wendy.
22.5 toddlers and child.jpg

Daichi:  SoÖare you telling me that they have adopted six kids now?  Let me see if I can name them all in order.  Thereís Apollo, the oldest, who still lives with you.  Artemis, of course, lives with me and Daisy.  Then thereís Nike, a child.  Athena, who just became a child.  And finally, Ares and Hermes who are still toddlers.  Is that right?
Shari:  Thatís correct!
22.6 collage.jpg

Daichi:  And where are Ares and Hermes?  I havenít seen them.
Shari:  They are right here, enjoying an early dinner before we start the next party.
22.7 toddlers eat.jpg

Daichi:  Who is the next party for?
Shari:  Apollo.  Heís becoming a young adult.
22.8 Apollo cake.jpg

Daichi:  Thank you for explaining it all to me, Mama Behr.  It was very helpful.
Shari: Anytime, dear, anytime.
22.9 Daichi talk.jpg

Daisy:  There you are, Daichi!  Have you been talking to Mama this whole time?
Daichi:  Yes, she was helping me learn all the names of Aster and Wendyís kids.
22.10 Daisy.jpg

Daisy:  Well, you missed all the excitement.
Daichi:  What excitement?
Daisy:  During the first party, Daniel Morton, Kellan McClure, and Fig all lined up in front of Bluebell with her cake!  Itís like they all thought they were in line for the buffet.
22.11 cake line.jpg
Daichi:  Oh no!  Did anyone get swallowed?
Daisy:  No. Thank goodness Wendy saw them! She ran out to feed Bluebell just in time.
Daichi:  Thatís good.  What else did I miss?
Daisy:  At Apolloís party, he found out what happens when you wake the llama.  The whole game exploded in a ball of fire!
22.12 llama woke.jpg

Daichi:  Haha!  I saw the fireball, but I didnít know who set it off.  Was everyone okay?
Daisy: Yeah, no harm done.  Apollo tried to act nonchalant about it later with Melany.  Heís got a thing for her, you know.
22.13 Apollo Mel.jpg

Mr. Datta:  I donít really think it was necessary for Master Behr to command me to clean.  I know what needs to be done after a party.  Still, this is an enviable position so I wonít complain.
22.14 Butler life.jpg

Two days laterÖ

Daisy:  Another party, Mama?  Werenít we just here?
22.15 Daisy hug.jpg

Shari:  This party is for Ares and Hermes.  After this, weíll have a break before the next birthday.
22.16 toddler cake.jpg

Apollo:  Hey Artemis!  You must have aged up to a young adult since the last time I saw you.  Whatís your third trait?
Artemis:  Kleptomaniac.
Evie:  OooÖtough break.
22.17 klepto trait.jpg
Artemis:  Huh?  Why?
Apollo:  Because youíll never be invited to visit the legacy house ever again, thatís why.

After the partyÖ

Aster:  Listen up kids!  Your mother and I need to make a quick stop at the flea market, then weíre all going to the park!
All the kids:  Yay!

Wendy:  Look at this.  A whole table full of crystals and the only one we need is that big, green plumbite.
Aster:  EhÖbuy them all anyway.  We can send the rest to the geo council and maybe get some new elements.

Shari:  Oh my goodness!  Aster and Wendy certainly have these children well-trained.
22.19 park line.jpg

Shari:  It does my heart good to see them all having fun.

Wendy: This is nice.  All of our kids are here, even Artemis.  And isnít that one of Figís girls on the monkey bars?

Later that eveningÖ

Wendy:  Congratulations Aster!  Youíve finished your second vampire aspiration!
Aster:  Thank you.  You must be getting close to completing yours, too.
Wendy:  Just two more days of Ďnot drinking deeplyí for me.
22.22 Aster vampire.jpg

Aster:  Thereís something Iíd like to talk to you about, darling.  You know Iím ambitious and hate to be idle.  Now that Iíve reached the top of the political career, Iím getting a bit restless.  I think I might start a second career to challenge myself.
Wendy: What career would you choose?
Aster:  The business career.  Men are building railroads, and ocean liners, and all kinds of things!  Itís a great time for industry.
Wendy:  Sounds good to me.  Should I join the business career as well?
22.23 talk.jpg
Aster:  I was going to suggest that Apollo enter the business career with me.  Since heís decided to stay in the house for a while longer, he should get a job.  Where is that boy, anyway?
Wendy:  He invited Melany over for a date.  Donít worry, dear.  Iíll make sure he joins the business career in time to start on Monday morning.

Notes:
ē   After completing his second vampire aspiration, Aster did Leader of the Pack for some quick points.  Now heís on Big Happy Family.  Iíd like for him to earn the Patriarch trait before the gen 3 heir candidates come along.
ē   In order for Aster to complete Big Happy Family, Apollo needs to stay in the legacy house.  The plan is for Apollo to marry Melany and father 4(!) children with her.  Then, Apollo will move out. 
ē   Aster doesnít really need to max another career. However, I think it makes sense with his Ambitious trait and it will make things easier on future generations.  I doubt Apollo will actually max the other branch of the business career, but he might as well have a job.

Congrats to Aster on completing his second vampire aspiration!
Yes, I meant Apollo and the girl next door, not Artemis. You can tell that I have only a tenuous grasp on Greek mythology!

Such solid planning for this generation, Watcher!
Brilliant idea to use vampire parents for the 10-kids-in-one-gen project!
6 out 10 children already. I'm excited to meet the next wave of heir candidates!!!!

Oh the flea market! I keep forgetting to go to that!
Great update!

Thanks for the compliment on my planning although sometimes I feel like I'm winging it.  :)  I didn't really know what I wanted to do with this generation until Aster got the ambitious trait and I knew for sure that he was the heir.  I decided the theme for Aster and Wendy would be "big" so having 10 kids and being vampires seemed to fit.  I've been having a lot of fun with the vampires because this is the first time I've played them (I got the pack just before starting my Sharebears). 

The flea market is hit or miss (usually miss).  I try to have my sims pop in just to see if anything good is there.  They also pop in to the spice festival sometimes to look for the UFO plant (the only one they are missing) but so far no luck on that.

Wow, congrats Aster on your second vampire aspiration.  Love the recap of all the kids.  It definitely helps me out lol
I know the 10 kids generation can get confusing.  It's hard enough for me to keep up with them so I try to make it as easy as possible to follow.  I'm glad it helped!

Big Moves
   
Shari:  Are you three ready for your first day of school? 
Hermes and Athena: Yes, maíam.
Ares (on the right): Whereís Nike?  And why is it Athena's first day?  Sheís two days older than Hermes and me.
Shari:  Athenaís birthday was Friday afternoon so today is her first chance to go to school.  And your sister Nike already left for class.  Youíd better finish your breakfast and get going, too.
23.1 school.jpg

Apollo:  Monday morning, time for my first day at work.  I donít mind joining the business career, but why do I have to wear one of Dadís old suits from his days as a politician?
23.2 Apollo job.jpg

Wendy:  Itís nice of you to drop by for a visit Melany.  May I feel the baby?
Melany:  Of course, Mrs. Behr! 
Wendy:  I canít believe Iím going to be a grandmother already!  And please just call me Wendy.
23.3 Mel belly.jpg

Melany:  Is Apollo still at work?
Wendy:  Yes, dear.  He should be home soon if youíd like to wait for him.
Melany:  Thank you.  Iíll just do some laundry to pass the time.
23.4 Mel laundry.jpg
Wendy: (to herself) Sheís a keeper! 

Apollo:  Hmmph!  I worked hard all day and barely missed getting a promotion.
Aster (thinking):  I guess I probably shouldnít mention that I got promoted. 
23.5 Aster Apollo work.jpg
 
Aster: Itís exciting to be working on a new career!  If only these business reports werenít so boring.
23.6 Aster works.jpg

Wendy:  Keep up the good work, dear.  And by the way, I just finished my Good Vampire aspiration.
Aster:  Well done, Wendy!
23.7 Wendy good vampire.jpg

The next day:

Fig: Hey Aster.  Want to come to my birthday party?
Aster:  Sure thing, bro!  Iíll bring the whole household over.
23.8 Fig invite.jpg

Aster: Oh, good!  Daisy came to your party, too.  And is that our old nanny?
Fig:  Yeah.  I thought it would be nice to invite him, but Iíve had nothing but awkward conversations with him since he arrived.
Daisy: (whispers) Just between us, Iím starting to understand why Papa always thought the nanny was strange.
23.9 Fig Nanny.jpg

After a rather uneventful party, Apollo notices a change in his relationship panel so he, Wendy, and Aster rush off to Melanyís house.

Wendy:  Triplets! 
23.10 triplets.jpg
From left to right:  Tamara, Gracie, and Matthew

Wendy:  Congratulations Melany!  I had no idea that you were carrying triplets!
Melany:  Thank you.  They surprised me, too.
Wendy:  Iím sure I could not have asked for a better daughter-in-law.
Melany:  Oh!  Well, actually, Apollo and I arenít officially engagedÖ
Wendy:  What?  Not engaged!  Iíll just leave you two alone, then.  *gives Apollo a look*
23.11 need proposal.jpg

Apollo:  *sheepishly* Iím sorry about that, Mel.  Mother means well, but sometimes she can be a littleÖ
Melany:  Intense?  Itís okay, Apollo.  I like your mother.  And I know you must feel a lot of pressure growing up in a legacy family.
Apollo:  Thereís some pressure, but itís not that bad.  Iíve never been asked to do anything I didnít want to do. 
23.12 Apollo Mel.jpg

Apollo:  I really do love you, Mel.  Will you marry me?
Melany: *fakes surprise*  Oh yes!
23.13 Apollo propose.jpg

Melany:  You know, if you were to send your parents home, we could try for baby number four.
Apollo:  I truly donít deserve you.
23.14 baby try.jpg


Back at the Legacy house:

Shari: Do you have a moment, Wendy?  Thereís something Iíd like to discuss with you.
Wendy:  Sure, Mama Behr.  Whatís on your mind?
Shari:  WellÖIíve been thinking that maybe itís time for me to move out.
Wendy:  But Mama BehrÖ!
Shari: Now, I know what you are going to say, but hear me out.  Apollo only needs to father one more child and then he can move into the McClure house.  Nike will be a teen soon and will most likely move out.  If I move out, too, that would give you and Aster three spaces in the house to fill.  I know youíd like to have ten children and this would help you get there quicker.
Wendy:  But we have six children now.  Even with three spaces, weíd still need one more.  I just donít think you need to be in any hurry to move out on our account.
Shari:  Yes, but Athenaís birthday wonít be far behind Nikeís and then youíll have room for the tenth child.  As much as I love all of my grandchildren, Iím anxious to see you and Aster produce an heir.  Forgive me for being so blunt, but if I move out would you consider having a naturally born child?
Wendy:  I appreciate your honesty, Mama Behr.  And certainly we know we need to have at least one naturally born child, possibly two.  I just donít think that Aster will like the idea of our founder moving out.
Shari:  Thatís why I came to you first, dear.  Talk to him and help him see the logic. 
23.15 Shari Wendy talk.jpg

The following day:
Nike:  Today is my birthday and I still had to go to school!
Athena:  Donít be crabby, Nike.  If you move out after your party youíll never have to go to school again!  I heard Uncle Fig and Aunt Evie arenít strict about making their teens go.  Mother has seen them around town during school hours.
23.16 kids school.jpg

Nike:  Good point!  Letís have cake!
23.17 Nike.jpg
Nike ages up into an active childish teen.

Since everyone is already home, Apollo plans his wedding as soon as the birthday party endsÖ

Melany:  Apollo!  You look amazing!
Apollo:  I used some aspiration points to buy a slimify potion.  You donít think itís too much, do you?
Melany: Not at all.  Iíd say itís just right. *flirts*
23.18 Slim Apollo.jpg
Nike: (thinking) Ugh!  Why do they have to be so cute?  Just get married already!

23.19 wedding1.jpg
23.20 wedding2.jpg
23.21 wedding3.jpg

Datta:  Iíve always liked master Apollo, but Iím glad heís moving out.  Heís making me look bad by doing the dishes at his own wedding!
23.22 Apollo and Datta.jpg

Shari:  Well, old girl, itís time for me to move out.  Keep an eye on the kids for me, okay?  Iíll visit as often as I can.
23.23 bluebell.jpg

Aster:  I really wish you would reconsider, Mama.
Shari:  I know, dear, but this is for the best.  Iíve emptied my inventory, left you several more potions of youth, and transferred the family club to you.  Nike and I will be living with Figís family .  If you need us, just use that new telephone and give us a call. 
Aster: As soon as you go, Iím starting a club meeting so you have to come right back here.
23.24 goodbye.jpg
Shari:  I would prefer that you spend your time trying for an heir first. 
Aster: *blushes*


Notes:  After the wedding, Apollo moved into the McClure house to be with Melany and their triplets.  Melany is not showing a baby bump yet, but she has been acting nauseous and having baby-related thought bubbles so Iím confident that sheís pregnant with a fourth child.  Also, the slimify potion Apollo drank was surprisingly effective.

Shari and Nike moved in with Fig, Evie, and their girls.

Big moves, indeed!
It's really hard not to feel impatient once seeing the end of the ten-kids-in-one-gen tunnel, eh?
Poor Melany, giving birth to triplets out of wedlock! I'm sure Apollo was busy trying to max his career so that he could move out!
He looks great after the Insta-Lean potion! Congrats on their wedding!
Haha, he and Melany want more than three kids?!

Great job completing all the vampire aspirations!
Btw, is that awkward thing with the nanny because the nanny's often flirty?

The return of the creepy nanny! Sorry.

I agree on Melany being a keeper. Anyone who would spontaneously do my laundry would be.


And woaw, Apollo had triplets on the first try. I understand his mother urging him to ask for Melany's hand asap. I wonder how many the second pregnancy will bring them. And I like the slightly scared look of Apollo when holding his daughter.

With the 10 kid generation, I feel like Aster and Wendy have raised the equivalent of three separate families (older kids, middle kids, younger kids).  So yeah, I'm definitely feeling impatient to meet my potential heirs.   :)  Apollo actually didn't max his career before moving out because...impatience. 
I'm kinda bummed that I won't be able to play Melany and Apollo's triplets because I so rarely get them in my games.  But it was really helpful because I know Melany's second pregnancy will complete the "4 grandchildren" requirement for Aster's Big Happy Family aspiration.  That's really the only reason I'm making Apollo and Melany have so many kids. 

I don't know what's up with the nanny.  At Fig's party, the conversation got instantly awkward when he joined the group.  I only had control of Aster, but Fig and Daisy were clearly showing signs of being embarrassed.  Do you happen to know if a former nanny can...um...die an accidental death?  Or does being a nanny once grant them immortality?  I'm asking purely for research purposes. *whistles innocently*

Oh wow!  Triplets!  And now a fourth one huh?  Their wedding was delightful ^^
Thanks!  I think this is only the 2nd time any of my sims have ever had triplets.  The 4th child is so Aster will have 4 grandchildren for Big Happy Family.  Apollo and Melany have been real troopers!

The return of the creepy nanny! Sorry.

I went back and looked at the picture of Aster, Wendy, and Apollo with the triplets and you are right.  Apollo looks a little nervous whereas Aster and Wendy are completely at ease.  Apollo will get more comfortable with experience, right?
