Single Vampire Parent Challenge: Chapter 2

Me: Welcome back to. . . wait!

Me: Now I bet you're wondering, "What the heck happened?" Well, I think it's time to bring in the CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) team. Welcome CSI Rachel.
CSI Rachel: Thank you. Now, let's see what happened here. I see there is a coffin on the front lawn.
Me: Yeah, that's so Raquel can get right in it when she gets home from work.
CSI Rachel: Well she obviously got out for some reason. It looks like the remains are ashes. I can conclude from that, that she was burnt up by the sun.
Me: Even I know that, she was a vampire after all.
CSI Rachel: I notice the ashes are right in front of the energizer. I conclude from this she was trying to save herself at the last moment.
Me: But why did she get out of her coffin?
CSI Rachel: And that brings me to final piece of evidence, the stereo.
Me: Oh no!!!
CSI Rachel: Yes, it is my professional opinion that the stereo was left on from last night. Raquel came home from work and tried to go to sleep in the coffin but she couldn't because of the stereo. It's obvious that whomever was in charge here didn't realize this was why she got out of the coffin the first time, so this happened twice. In a last ditch effort to save herself she stepped into the energizer but her needs were too low and she stepped out immediately and perished.
Me: Wow, I think you're right. But wait.
-Exits without saving, marks down the lose of 10 points and reenters the lot and moves the stereo inside the house-

Me: Much better. I see you're back this evening Count.
Count: Blah. Yes, I have a daughter, blah. I want to get to know her.
Me: Who knew the Count would make a good father.

Me: Great job Raquel! Uh, try not to bite any of your students.
Raquel: OK.

Me: Happy Birthday Julia! And now that you made it through the easy infant stage, let's see how your mom handles the toddler stage.

Raquel: Say Blah. Blah.
Julia: Bye.
Raquel: no, Blah.
Me: I think only Vampires can Blah.

Me: This is just too funny. Most of the Lost-aways dancing in the tiny stereo room.

Me: Wow, the Count brings sweet gifts!

Me: And he brings the festiveness for Julia's next birthday. Wow Raquel, you survived Julia's toddlerhood. How'd it go?
Raquel: Not so bad. Lots of smart milk and thinking caps. She learned all her toddler skills and got 8 charisma points.
Me: Hey great job.

Me: You're so beautiful Julia.
Julia: Gee thanks. Hey, why can't my mommy play outside during the day?
Me: Well you see the sun hurts her. You can play at night and she always makes sure to have lots of leftovers in the fridge for you.
Julia: OK.
-Here's the part where I didn't take a lot of pictures. I wasn't sure I was going to blog this so I missed a lot of the shots I usually take, sorry.-

Me: Baby #2 is here! So Raquel, what'd you have this time?
Raquel: Another girl, Samantha.

Me: Just thought I'd let you all see Raquel's last name. She was destined to be a vampire.

Raquel: Happy birthday baby Samantha!
Me: Time for the second trial with a toddler. Won't be quite as easy with a child in the house as well. Speaking of which. . .

Me: Time for Samantha to do her homework. Looks like 2 days worth. It's not as easy as we thought it was.

Me: Well I guess toddlerhood was pretty easy, cause look, Samantha is already a child.
Raquel: Yeah, it has been relatively easy so far.

Me: It looks like Samantha is making friends with Rachel Bachelor.
Samantha: yeah, she kept stopping by the house. She's a nice lady.

Me: Wow Julia, it's already time for you to become a teen?
Julia: Sure is.
Me: Happy Birthday.

Me: You sure are lovely Julia, but why are you purpley pink?
Julia: It's summer time and the house is so small. I spent too much time outside playing chess with that Rachel Bachelor, she's sun burnt as well.
Me: well you just drink some of that water and feel better.

Me: She looks better and hey she's getting a blind date.

Me: Looks like she's hitting it off with him.
Julia: Yeah, he's nice. And he's one of those Bon Voyage guys, so when he visits, he stays for 3 whole days.
Me: Cool and I think that will be helpful, very soon.
Julia: What do you mean?
Me: You'll see.

Raquel: Dang it Count! Stop biting my friends!
Me: Poor Charlie Lost.

Me: Yay baby #3!!!! See there's Destry, it's good that he's here, very good.
Raquel: He, he why?
Me: Just wait.

Me: Now I bet you're all wondering why there are 3 babies here? Well, because of a glitch. She had 3 single births, no twins. She had the first, Victoria, set her down, went into labor again, had Renee and finally had William. I thought that would make for a good challenge so they stayed. Luckily a vampire's needs won't decay during labor, cause it was daytime and no way she would have survived through 3 times of labor in a row.

That's all for now. How will she or I handle triplets? Come back for Chapter 3.

Wow! Three kids! =] Interesting glitch.

Looking forward to seeing how she handles all these children.

And the older girls are very cute. =]]

Infinity-Nevermore said...

Whoa! She died? That sucks. Good you could exit without saving. I still think that triplets glitch was cool. How long does the challenge last again?

ASimWen said...

Hehehe three babies at once> so that makes a total of 5 kids for that vamp parent! Looks like lots of Simming skill is in order.

ruby said...

*cringes at the thought of three infants* oh goodness! better you than me!! whew!
shame she died .. smart to keep going w/the penalty .. great looking kids!and finally a boy!

Melissa said...

Wow! 3 infants. I can't believe that. I've done 3 before, but it was a single birth for Mom and twin aliens for Dad. Good luck with a single Vampire mom. Whew!

3 kids is nothing for a spin-off Rachel Sim pro. ;)

Lucky you can exit without
