Chapter 1

TS3 2017-11-13 21-37-27-40.jpg

Welcome to the Extreme Start edition of the Baby Boomer challenge.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-24-28-97.jpg

Libra:  Will you get over here so we can be introduced.

Holly Berry:  Just wait a sec.  We got sleeping bags!

TS3 2017-11-13 14-25-06-65.jpg

Libra:  For reals?  Are we that poor?

Holly Berry:  We must be.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-25-59-06.jpg

Holly Berry Tart was a spare in my Tart ISBI.  She then went on to do a Homemaker Challenge with her wife, which went on a hiatus for some reason.

Libra Winters hails from Tam’s Winter’s ISBI

TS3 2017-11-13 14-14-46-95.jpg

The Mesa Grande legacy lot is astronomical.  They have $308 left over and only $108 after buying two sleeping bags.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-29-21-26.jpg

Libra:  Back away from that $20.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-30-11-23.jpg

Holly is off to get a job at the film studio that I plopped down before they moved to town.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-30-31-66.jpg

Among several other buildings placed, the Stones Throw Greenhouse was one too.  Mesa Grande has 6 add on buildings for other EP’s that were added and I added the elixir consignment store.

After getting her job, Holly arrives to help harvest the place.  All watermelons are sold on the spot.  So far, no apples have reared their disallowed heads.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-31-46-06.jpg

Holly is more interested in this challenge than Libra is.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-40-23-04.jpg

Holly dances while they are waiting for the sunlight to appear.  Not only do they sell for $100 a piece, they are hugely beneficial in gardens or so I have read not more than an hour ago.

TS3 2017-11-13 14-55-08-84.jpg

Angelica:  Why did you do that?

Holly:  Because its fun?

TS3 2017-11-13 14-55-13-90.jpg

Angelica:  Well, it sure as hell wasn’t fun for me!

TS3 2017-11-13 15-10-25-21.jpg

Selling off everything that they harvested netted them a room.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-10-30-33.jpg

Oh and an easel for Libra.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-10-53-05.jpg

They have everything they need now.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-18-10-86.jpg

Libra is a genie in this life, so she can just conjure food.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-18-40-96.jpg

Holly:  Too bad she can’t conjure a table and some chairs.

Before eating, Libra planted everything that she could.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-22-02-81.jpg

Holly: I’d much rather stay home and paint.

Too bad.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-35-27-92.jpg

Libra tended her garden and then headed back to the greenhouse.  She pretty much just ignored everyone and just collected seeds, snakes, and wild flowers.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-36-06-21.jpg

TS3 2017-11-13 15-36-27-66.jpg

Along with Holly’s paycheck, they were up to four digits.  They could buy the swift grow thing, a potion table, a bed, a fridge, and a stove.  They only had $22 left over, so no counters.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-39-43-19.jpg

They had to sell a couple of more fruits to pay the bills.  Holly then had to bathe and go to bed to recuperate from the explosion.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-41-02-59.jpg

Libra adds 3 sunlight to the composter and unleashes it on her garden.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-45-48-50.jpg

Another batch of sunlight in the morning and it advances the garden to harvest stage :O.  I knew it was outstanding quality fertilizer, but I didn’t know it would grow things faster.

TS3 2017-11-13 15-53-54-96.jpg

Day five and they finally have a free moment to just be.

TS3 2017-11-13 16-03-37-01.jpg

Which led to this.

TS3 2017-11-13 19-42-32-60.jpg

Before starting this challenge, I removed 55% of my mods.  I’m starting to wonder if one was causing these little guys to not work right.  Libra buys three because when the baby is born, it’s not going to be easy hitting the greenhouse for 8 hours a day collecting.

TS3 2017-11-13 19-45-49-56.jpg

Holly Berry leaves work and heads across the street to join Libra in gathering more stuff.

TS3 2017-11-13 19-56-48-36.jpg

Libra leaves due to hunger and did not make it home before morning sickness strikes again.

TS3 2017-11-13 19-59-28-83

I removed most, if not all, of my maternity wear, so basic clothing it is for now.  Libra pops a little while later.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-02-41-85.jpg

They technically don’t really need a young again potion or even an age freeze potion, but it gives Holly something to do after work.  She has made the mood enhancer and stink juice potions so far.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-04-54-92.jpg

In the morning, Holly wakes up to get ready for work just as Libra is heading to bed after a night in the garden.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-13-28-95.jpg

It’s Holly’s day off finally and she works in the garden for a little bit after breakfast.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-13-40-65.jpg

I new this was coming.  Something in the fridge spoiled and Holly ate it.

Holly:  I wish I had cleaned out the fridge earlier.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-19-38-14.jpg

Holly calls up and invites her face one Boss over for a visit.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-20-48-81.jpg

Holly:  I can’t believe the weekend hit and my performance bar was almost topped.

Elias:  Yes, you should have put in more effort yesterday.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-24-45-93.jpg

Holly:  I really think that I did do the work, but someone was just too lazy to write up my promotion papers.  I think you should give me one right this minute.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-25-02-26.jpg

..and He does.  Then Holly told him to leave.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-26-30-69.jpg

Elias:  This view is amazing!  I wish I could live here.

Libra:  Keep moving, pudding face.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-39-13-15.jpg

Sigh.  Libra finds pumpkins in her inventory and starts carving before I can stop her.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-39-56-46.jpg

It’s so cute though.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-42-40-14.jpg

Libra was off selling her harvest at the store when labor hits.  With SP turned off, apparently the game takes actual sims from the saved sims folder (I never put back in my library folder, so there is no sims for immigration anyway).   Both Caren (who I had saved from another file and is Holly’s co-worker) and Mallow Ugli (also in my saved folder) are the only two there two witness her labor pains.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-44-25-11.jpg

Libra heads off the hospital instead of making the long drive home.

TS3 2017-11-13 20-45-48-39.jpg

Libra and Holly welcome a son named Baldric.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-19-56-65.jpg

The ladies spared now expense on his little nursery and becomes the first one in the family to get an actual roof over their head.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-21-53-83.jpg

TS3 2017-11-13 21-35-29-17.jpg

It doesn’t happen right away, but they do start on baby #2.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-26-49-01.jpg

TS3 2017-11-13 21-28-53-27.jpg

Holly does not have high enough fairy power to fairy repair stuff yet, so she has random auras going at all times now.  She fixed a toilet, the shower and then goes and gets rid of all the dead plants on her next day off.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-39-28-41.jpg

It’s completely dark here, but Libra is feeling a bit sick again.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-43-03-47.jpg

TS3 2017-11-13 21-43-22-99.jpg

She then becomes my first sim in 3 years to be abducted.  I’m really glad that she is a) already pregnant and b) an occult sim.  Too bad I have had pregnant sims that were abducted to glitch and have an alien baby though.  We’ll see how that goes.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-53-10-01.jpg

Holly:  Well, I am so glad that you could make it over.  We really need to discuss the horrible work ethic we have at the studio.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-54-15-18.jpg

Holly:  As you might be aware, I’m a new mom and my paycheck is just not cutting it.

Elias:  I’m not sure what I can do about it.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-56-19-53.jpg


TS3 2017-11-13 21-56-47-50.jpg

Holly:  Look my wife just gave birth a couple of days ago and she’s pregnant again.  I’m really going to insist that I get a promotion right now or I’m going on strike.

Elias:  Do you really think we need a strike right now?

TS3 2017-11-13 21-57-05-29.jpg

Holly:  Nope, I’m good.  See you later.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-58-34-78.jpg

Baldric has his birthday and with both moms so busy, he is slightly needing some attention.

TS3 2017-11-13 21-58-45-59.jpg

Holly remembers to check the mail finally (and pay bills) and Baldric now has something to entertain himself with.

I really like how  Baldric looks.  He has Libra’s hair, Holly’s eyes, and I’m not too sure, but I think that’s Libra’s skin.

Baldric rolled Athletic and Computer Whiz.


Most of my mods and cc were removed.  The game is running really good and I love this world.  It runs really smooth.

This is way more fun that Sims 4 right now.  I have aging on the epic span, but normal for the minor ages.

Baby: 2 days
Toddler: 4 days
Child: 6 days
Teen: 6 days
Young Adult: Maxed  (Libra: 835 days  Holly: 2,185)
Adult: Maxed
Elder: 7 days.

  1. Baldric is so cute! I can’t wait to see all the other babies to come from your pairing! I also love how Holly talked her way into a promotion twice. XD That face-1 boss of hers likely hasn’t heard the last from her!


  2. The Homemakers return! I wonder if they will switch job wishes like they did last time…is that even allowed in this challenge? In theory, as long as you have only one in a paid job, I don’t think there is anything that says the same sim has to be the working one for the whole challenge…

    Baldric is adorbs, but I expected nothing less from these two. Wish I’d considered using a Long/Epic lifespan, would have made things so much easier!
