Merlin's toddler days seemed to fly right by. I was going to knit him a onesie but never had the time. Maybe I'll manage to finish a beanie before he becomes a teen.

he26.01.jpg
He's a child now and apt to become gloomy.

he26.02.jpg
I helped him with his homework once or twice, and he's now a B student, hopefully on his way to getting an A.

he26.03.jpg
We went to the park one evening, where i played a space monster for him. He pointed out to me later that space monsters don't wear bathing suits.

he26.07.jpg
Merlin's granddad is always willing to give him a hug.

he26.11.jpg
His father Chance comes over fairly often, too. He really likes our rocking chairs.

he26.14.jpg
So much so, I'm afraid, that the other evening he tried to drop into one directly from his broom. That didn't work well, and Tina Tinker was quite startled.

he26.09.jpg
At work I've become good friends with Dr. Malakai Lim.

he26.04.jpg
I'm being sent out on house calls now. My first was to Amanda's house, where I got to meet my little niece Gina.

he26.06.jpg
I'm also using more complicated machinery such as the treadmill.

he26.10.jpg
It took me a while to master the controls.

he26.08.jpg
And from the treadmill I've moved to doing surgery. My first operation was not much of a success.

he26.05.jpg
But the second one went really well. Someone collapsed in the lobby, and I think I may have saved his life. I got a promotion, anyway.

he26.12.jpg
And that's most of my news except that Mom is an elder now. I've offered to let her use my knitting bag, but she's not interested.

Almost forgot -- I maxed the Purveyor of Potions aspiration. Yay me!

Gina Caliente 1

ca41.06.jpg
Shortly after Gina became a toddler, Dino got a visit from his mother. "You should move," she said. "Del Sol Valley is no place for people who don't care about acting. Yes, the weather is nice here, but there's nothing so bourgeois as a fishing hole. Just make sure you pack up our pictures and tombstones when you leave."

ca41.01.jpg
So Dion, Amanda, and Gina found a place on the island of Sulani -- Journey's End.

ca41.02.jpg
As befitted an heir, Gina got her own bedroom and bathroom. And since there wasn't enough space for her dollhouse in the bedroom, it went into the bath.

ca41.03.jpg
Dion and Amanda got a nice, large bedroom, with a balcony overlooking the garden.

ca41.04.jpg
Their bathroom was a good size, too.

ca41.05.jpg
Downstairs, there was plenty of room in the kitchen for a dining table and chairs.

ca41.07.jpg
And outside, off the living-room, was a pool, with a wading pool for Gina, and a little slide on the porch.

ca41.08.jpg
Gina Caliente approved of her domain. As the first heiress in her generation, and the first toddler ever to be the designated Sim, she felt justified in considering herself to be a princess.

ca41.09.jpg
And as a princess, she was free to throw off all her clothing, if that was what she felt like.

ca41.10.jpg
Plus she could choose any toy in her box to play with, including the one that her parents said was a little Grim Reaper.

ca41.11.jpg
There was only one person who didn't seem to understand that Gina was a princess, one person who scolded her when she threw food on the floor.

ca41.13.jpg
Her mother. But that didn't matter so much because her mother went off to work.

ca41.12.jpg
And Gina's father would let her play as much as she wanted, even throwing her in the air if that was what she wanted to do.

ca41.14.jpg
Sadly, she couldn't stay awake all the time, but had to go to bed occasionally. When she got older, Gina planned to do something about that.

Note: For the next few chapters, there will be some Generation 3 chapters mixed in with Generation 4 ones.

Tiffany Landgraab 4

la26.01.jpg
Tiffany Landgraab and Carl Newbida have known each other for a long time now. Their relationship began with a shared interest in athletics.

la26.02.jpg
Basketball and soccer were their preferred passions.

la26.03.jpg
Eventually, they added chess to the list, which gave them an opportunity to talk to each other.

la26.04.jpg
And finally, they took it to another level.

la26.05.jpg
And in the hot tub at the Newbida household, another level still.

la26.06.jpg
Carl was the one to propose. "Tiffany, will you embark on life's great adventures with me?"

la26.07.jpg
Tiffany said yes, of course, and they made their vows in the Newbidas' back yard.

la26.08.jpg
Tiffany wasn't quite sure this was the adventure they'd anticipated. Twins? Both girls, despite the pink and blue bassinets.

la26.09.jpg
"I was a twin, so I should know what to expect, but I don't really remember being a toddler. Any thoughts?" Carl asked his father-in-law, Sterling.
Sterling chuckled. "One thing I can say, given how skinny you and my daughter are, the kids will probably become invisible when they turn sideways."

la26.10.jpg
But Porsche (dark-haired, in the high chair) and Mazda (blond, on Tiffany's back) seemed to be quite substantial and not at all likely to disappear.

la26.11.jpg
Porsche was the more troublesome of the two.

la26.12.jpg
Mazda was more affectionate. Naturally, Porsche was the heir.

la26.13.jpg
But the two of them enjoyed babbling to each other.

la26.14.jpg
And they got along well when they played with their dolls.

la26.15.jpg
In fact, Tiffany was able to leave them alone for a few hours and complete the aspiration she'd begun working on the previous winter: she became a Body Builder. But she's not going to get a career in athletics. She plans to finish her degree in Physics as soon as Porsche and Mazda are children, and then become an astronaut. And Carl has started to develop his interest in art and has entered the Painter career.

Rosa Straud 5

st27.04.jpg
Letter from Rosa Straud to Mimi Zest:

Dear Mama Mimi,
Or would you prefer MaMi or MiMa? Let me know.

st27.02.jpg
I hear that you've been complaining that I robbed you of your baby, that I robbed the cradle, that I robbed Nathan of his teen years. And yes, I'm guilty as charged.

st27.13.jpg
Although I must say that Nathan doesn't seem to miss being a teen much.

st27.06.jpg
But I hope my actions make a little sense. I realized that if I waited until I was completely finished with college, it would be time to hand the reins of my legacy to a new heir -- who would not yet exist.

st27.16.jpg
The death of my great-uncle Max reminded me that time was passing. (And incidentally, you won't have to worry that Uncle Max will be around to be a bad influence, either on Nathan or the baby.)

st27.09.jpg
My mother's elder birthday was another reminder that I didn't have long. I'm sure you can appreciate that she would at least like to see her grandchild grow up a little.

st27.11.jpg
To make a long story short, Nathan and I eloped.

st27.14.jpg
I got pregnant.

st27.12.jpg
He was a little dismayed when I told him -- it appears that he hates children, although no one can actually "hate" a child, don't you think.
 
st27.08.jpg
Anyway, he seems happy now, and enjoys sparring with our mechanical monster.

st27.10.jpg
He seems to like cleaning, too, which endears him to everyone.

st27.01.jpg
And I think you'll agree that our offspring are going to be incredibly handsome.

st27.03.jpg
In closing, Mama Mimi, you're welcome to come over any time. Just be aware that you have to wear some sort of face covering while this Simvid-41 virus is going around.

st27.07.jpg
No one is exempt, not even the Grim Reaper.

st27.15.jpg
And if you have the time, I would love some tips on knitting.
Sincerely, affectionately, apologetically, your daughter-in-law, Rosa

Gina Caliente 2

ca42.07.jpg
Hello. My name is Gina Caliente, and I live with my father on the island of Sulani.

ca42.04.jpg
Everyone thinks that Sulani has wonderful weather, but in the wintertime, all it does is rain.

ca42.05.jpg
I would rather live somewhere with more snow and less lightning, like my cousin's house in Brindleton Bay. Daddy took me there once to visit Mommy's grave.

ca42.06.jpg
You see, I became a norphan when I was just a toddler.

ca42.01.jpg
Mommy went to visit her sister, Aunt Elspeth, and decided to go running while she was there.

ca42.02.jpg
But she wasn't dressed warmly enough so she died.

ca42.03.jpg
Aunt Elspeth tried to get the Grim Reaper to spare my mother, but he refused.

ca42.10.jpg
So from then on, it's been just me and Daddy.

ca42.08.jpg
I haven't always been the best-behaved little girl.

ca42.09.jpg
But as long as I get to do what I want, I'm pretty good.

I had to take a simming break after my BACC grew to 17 households. Your 10-household challenge is the perfect size, it seems to me.

And now I'm all caught up.
My favorite screenshots might be (1) the simbot teaching a yoga class. I've yet to see a simbot running around in my saves.
And (2) What a shock to see Grim Reaper wearing a bag. Was that due to the Bags NAP being active in that neighborhood.
So many odd things happening in your game, like Knox nicking his "good friend" Jonah's laptop.

So many lovely kids! Congratz on Gina Caliente's red hair.
Looking forward to meet Rosa and Nathan's toddler(s), too!

After 10 generations, will all the active households be distantly related?
How great that the 4th generation is arriving!

Sometimes I think the perfect size is 1 household, 1 Sim. But yes, I am fond of all of them.
The Grim Reaper was in a neighborhood with the We Wear Bags NAP. It's odd that his whole body disappears when he can't wear his hood. As for Knox taking the computer, that seems to be the favorite item next to the sink. Jonah now keeps his laptop in inventory when not using it.

I'm trying to work out who is related to whom. I might have a couple of inter-family marriages in this generation, but most of them will be marrying outside the 10 families.

Atticus Newbida 1

ne41.01.jpg
Hi! I aged up to be a goofball, and I'm trying to become a rambunctious scamp.

ne41.02.jpg
Soon after I had my birthday, we had a big scare. Mom set herself on fire when she was trying to light the fireplace, and the Grim Reaper came.

ne41.04.jpg
But Dad begged the Grim Reaper to spare Mom's life...

ne41.05.jpg
...and he did! So she's fine now.

ne41.03.jpg
But I can't help wondering what would happen if the Grim Reaper caught fire. Would anyone plead for him?

ne41.06.jpg
You'd think we would have had enough trouble with fire, but that evening Tina Tinker came over and tried to cook something. I'm the one who called the Fire Department.

ne41.07.jpg
We all waited outside while the firemen came and took care of it.

ne41.08.jpg
I stayed outside a little while longer to build a snowpal.

ne41.09.jpg
And here he is!

ne41.10.jpg
Later on I got something to eat and talked to Mom for a bit.

ne41.11.jpg
And then I beat her at Don't Wake the Llama.

ne41.12.jpg
I worry about Mom sometimes. It's like she doesn't take care of herself now that she has come back from the dead. It was freezing cold outside, and she was sick, but she decided that the side of the pool was the place to sit and knit.

ne41.13.jpg
Oh, and my half-sister Nadine is a teen now. She's into arts and books.

As for me, I got a B at school, and I'm at level 5 of my motor skills, so I'm doing pretty well. Oh, and I'm a Griffon Scout, too.

Mortimer Gothario 1

go41.08.jpg
Morty Gothario was pleased with what he accomplished as a toddler. He made it possible for his triceratops to drive a car.

go41.09.jpg
He endured the air toss challenge without tossing anything else.

go41.05.jpg
He clarified his preferences in literature.

go41.02.jpg
Most important, and most difficult...

go41.03.jpg
...he managed to demonstrate...

go41.04.jpg
...that putting him in the high chair was not a good idea.

go41.01.jpg
And he survived a fire.

go41.07.jpg
Now that he's a child, he has new goals.

go41.06.jpg
Surviving another fire, check.

go41.14.jpg
Playing pirate, check. (Note: bubbles do not make effective projectiles.)

go41.15.jpg
Finding a toy in the trash, check.

go41.10.jpg
And having a great Winterfest, with tree trimming...

go41.11.jpg
...singing "Zwingle Fibb,"...

go41.12.jpg
...giving a present to Father Winter...

go41.13.jpg
...and getting a present in return, check, check, check, check. Oh, and his grandmother Corn got a promotion, his dad Luis got 3 promotions, and his mom Maria picked up 2 more college credits.

Your households are constantly suffering unexpected catastrophes! And then I remembered that you're only controlling the heirs. Wow.
Raising toddler can not be easy.
And it's a wonder the other household members are still earning promotions and such.
The upcoming heirs are showing lots of personality and promise! :)

Thanks, @oshizu!
Actually, controlling only the toddler is fairly easy, although I have to switch to a grown-up to pay bills (and deal with fires). I do control everyone in the household on the first day that I play it, so that's how they're able to skill up for promotions.

Peace Lee-Scott 1

le41.13.jpg
Happy Birthday to me! But now that I'm not a toddler any more, Daddy and Grandmother want me to try to remember as much as I can about my early childhood. "A good memory is very important," says Daddy. "Sometimes a trial can last several days, and you have to be able to remember everything all the witnesses say." Daddy is a judge. Grandmother is a lawyer, and she thinks a good memory is useful, too. And Granddaddy and Mom both agree, but they say it's okay if I can't remember things in chronological order. So here goes:

le41.12.jpg
Birthdays. Daddy had his birthday just before mine, so that's an easy one. We shared the same cake.

le41.06.jpg
Grandmother had her birthday on Spooky Day.

le41.03.jpg
I think Daddy burned leaves on Spooky Day, too. I remember the fire. He held my hand very tight and took me up close so I could feel the heat. "That's fire," he said. "It's very dangerous."

le41.05.jpg
Spooky Day was also the first time Granddaddy destroyed my doll house. I don't remember why. Mom told me that sometimes Granddaddy has anger issues, but he doesn't mean it.

le41.10.jpg
I do remember going to Daddy and complaining about it.

le41.04.jpg
Daddy put it back together for me that time. But after a while, I got tired of playing with the doll house, and we put it in storage.

le41.09.jpg
And now there's stuff in no order. I remember sitting on the couch with Grandmother and Granddaddy.

le41.01.jpg
I remember Daddy throwing me in the air and catching me.

le41.07.jpg
I remember watching Daddy cook supper. He told me knives were very dangerous, too.

le41.08.jpg
I remember watching Daddy do yoga.

le41.11.jpg
I remember hugging Bun-Bun. He was my best friend back then.

le41.02.jpg
I remember sitting at the table with Mom. Mom says that I don't have to become a lawyer just because I have a good memory. She says I can be an astronaut like my great-grandmother Liberty or an actress. Actresses need good memories, too. I think I'll join Drama Club and see what acting is like. Bye!

Porsche Landgraab 1

la41.01.jpg
All of us Landgraabs are named after something expensive, which is why my sisters and I are named after cars. It could have been worse. I could have been called BMW.

la41.02.jpg
That's my twin sister Mazda. She looks like my mother, and I look like my father.

la41.03.jpg
Even though we're not identical twins, we love each other very much.

la41.04.jpg
As a toddler, I was fussy, which meant I pitched a fit whenever things didn't go the way I wanted.

la41.05.jpg
But I was happy most of the time. Just as I became a child, two strange things happened.

la41.06.jpg
The first was that my dad gave birth to a third sister, Mercedes. Apparently dads aren't supposed to have babies, but I guess no one told him that. And she's not an alien, either.

la41.07.jpg
My mom was freaked out about it, too. She's studying physics and plans to become an astronaut when she graduates from college.

la41.08.jpg
The second was that the Grim Reaper came for my grandfather. That's my little sister Mercedes over to one side, poor kid.

la41.09.jpg
My mother tried to get the Grim Reaper to bring him back, but he turned her down.

la41.10.jpg
I'm going to miss Granddad. He was always willing to listen to me, and he loved music. Maybe I'll become a musician like him when I'm older.

Had Papa Landgraab phoned another household to ask whether he and his wife should try for baby?
I read on EA Answers HQ that it sometimes results in the father getting pregnant.

I adored Peace Lee-Scott's facial expression and clasped hands when she was complaining about her ruined dollhouse.

I know the baby was the result of one of those phone calls, and I think the person called was Carl's sister, Robin Newbida. In future, I think I'll answer "yes" only when the person called is related to the future mother.

Yes, that is a sweet pose.

Kimberley Zest 1

To be honest, this chapter is as much about her parents as it is about Kimberley. But that's what happens when you ask your mother to do the writing. Yes, I'm the best writer in the house -- only one best-seller away from completing my aspiration and at the top of my career as a journalist. But I still wish that Toby had done some of the writing while he was still the heir. And I'm still cross with Rosa Straud for taking Nathan away from us. And I'm not sure that Vivian is a good substitute.

She's pretty and fairly intelligent, but she does keep baking white cake. That's one reason you're not seeing my picture this time around -- too much white cake. I'm twice the woman I used to be. I suppose it's not fair to blame Vivian for that. I'm the one who keeps eating it.

And Vivian did provide us with two beautiful little girls -- Kimberley on the left and Louisa on the right -- so I suppose I shouldn't complain.

They both love to dance just as much as their father and uncle did when they were growing up. By now they've maxed their movement skills in addition to becoming potty-trained.

Both of them are independent, which can lead to the occasional meltdown, as when Louisa was confined to the high chair for too long.

But they're also full of curiosity. Yes, that's a box full of crickets that Kimberley is examining.

Toby claims he needs the crickets for his aspiration. I suppose I should be glad they're not beetles.

And there's reason to hope that we won't have the crickets around for much longer.

Toby got promoted the other day. He's in the Green Technician branch of the Civil Designer career.

And that means that logic is something he has to work on. More chess, less crickets. Aunt Yuki agrees with me.
