Welcome to the Extreme Start edition of the Baby Boomer challenge.
Libra: Will you get over here so we can be introduced.
Holly Berry: Just wait a sec. We got sleeping bags!
Libra: For reals? Are we that poor?
Holly Berry: We must be.
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
The Mesa Grande legacy lot is astronomical. They have $308 left over and only $108 after buying two sleeping bags.
Libra: Back away from that $20.
Holly is off to get a job at the film studio that I plopped down before they moved to town.
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.
Holly is more interested in this challenge than Libra is.
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.
Angelica: Why did you do that?
Holly: Because its fun?
Angelica: Well, it sure as hell wasn’t fun for me!
Selling off everything that they harvested netted them a room.
Oh and an easel for Libra.
They have everything they need now.
Libra is a genie in this life, so she can just conjure food.
Holly: Too bad she can’t conjure a table and some chairs.
Before eating, Libra planted everything that she could.
Holly: I’d much rather stay home and paint.
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.
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.
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.
Libra adds 3 sunlight to the composter and unleashes it on her garden.
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.
Day five and they finally have a free moment to just be.
Which led to this.
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.
Holly Berry leaves work and heads across the street to join Libra in gathering more stuff.
Libra leaves due to hunger and did not make it home before morning sickness strikes again.
I removed most, if not all, of my maternity wear, so basic clothing it is for now. Libra pops a little while later.
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.
In the morning, Holly wakes up to get ready for work just as Libra is heading to bed after a night in the garden.
It’s Holly’s day off finally and she works in the garden for a little bit after breakfast.
I new this was coming. Something in the fridge spoiled and Holly ate it.
Holly: I wish I had cleaned out the fridge earlier.
Holly calls up and invites her face one Boss over for a visit.
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.
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.
..and He does. Then Holly told him to leave.
Elias: This view is amazing! I wish I could live here.
Libra: Keep moving, pudding face.
Sigh. Libra finds pumpkins in her inventory and starts carving before I can stop her.
It’s so cute though.
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.
Libra heads off the hospital instead of making the long drive home.
Libra and Holly welcome a son named Baldric.
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.
It doesn’t happen right away, but they do start on baby #2.
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.
It’s completely dark here, but Libra is feeling a bit sick again.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Holly: Nope, I’m good. See you later.
Baldric has his birthday and with both moms so busy, he is slightly needing some attention.
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.
