Sunday, Day 14

“A Novel Idea” killeenw01-003

killeenw01-004

The modest shotgun-style abode of the Day Care was slightly enlarged to accommodate the influx of new toddlers in Oceanside. Mayor Malcolm gave the Killeens ten extra spaces for expansion which they desperately needed.

killeenw01-006

After a long night’s sleep Cindy Lou and Angie Killeen wake up refreshed and ready to shape the minds of Oceanside’s toddlers.

killeenw01-007

Cindy Lou, for one, is thankful to wake up in her own bed. Ever since the space ship landed with the refugee orphans something strange has been happening to her. Mysteriously she has been waking up in other sims’ homes without any knowledge of how she got there.

killeenw01-008

At first she wrote it off as her desire to adopt a child — maybe she was wandering into homes for the warmth of family that she desperately craved. But as her “sleep walking” grew more and more persistent as Winter dragged on she knew something else was at play. She felt at times that she was going insane but it almost seemed like supernatural forces were calling to her, begging for her help…

killeenw01-009

Around her wife she tried to put on a happy face but inside she was terrified. What could this all mean?

killeenw01-010

Knowing how freaked out all of the Oceansidians were of supernatural beings how could she tell anyone? What if SHE was a supernatural… something? Would they still let her teach their children? Would her wife still want her? For now it would have to remain Cindy Lou’s little secret…

killeenw01-011

As Cindy Lou leaves Angie to finish her breakfast and heads downstairs, the arriving children start pouring in. Killeen Kinder Care now has a record 34 toddlers on the roster. Heavens, how will they be able to teach them all!

killeenw01-016

killeenw01-017

The tots begin migrating to their toy or activity of choice.

killeenw01-018

killeenw01-019

killeenw01-022

Cindy Lou grabs the next child on the list to learn how to talk, Aria Mason-Troubadour.

killeenw01-023

Holly Goodacre munches on Mr. Bear Naked‘s ear. Maybe she needs a snack with a little less fiber.

killeenw01-024

New student Micah Mippolati enjoys an art lesson.

killeenw01-025

Antonio Lambswool heads to his favorite toy.

*like, seriously, look at the past updates and this is ALL he ever does*

killeenw01-026

Another new student, Hiro Yomoshoto, has a great time when he finds the Sego Blocks on the activity table.

killeenw01-027

Ezra Biltmore shoves shapes in the shape shover thingy.

killeenw01-028

Kenna Biltmore and Skye Troubadour-Healey hog the fairy treehouse while Poem Mason-Troubadour can only watch from afar.

killeenw01-029

Poem’s twin Piper Mason-Troubadour found a cool light-up firetruck to play with.

killeenw01-030

The cool kids, aka Cyan Troubadour-Bossanova, Faith Goodacre, Gavin Biltmore, and Vin Firestone, gather around discussing their favorite toys.

killeenw01-031

Day Care Queen B, Gwyneth Landgraab, finds a horse suitable for royalty.

killeenw01-033

Hiro is joined by the cute, freckled-faced Riley Fairweather.

killeenw01-034

Two more orphans, Butterfly Whitefeather and Jacoby Bond, test out another activity table…

killeenw01-035

along with Liam Sidebottom and Elise Welchington.

killeenw01-036

Little Gianna Lambswool is hesitant to play with the robot. She knows how these things can run amok.

killeenw01-039

Angie finishes her cereal and prepares to join Cindy Lou in the Day Care. She knows something is bothering Cindy Lou and she thinks she knows what it is. CL is desperate to adopt a child and so is Angie. Hopefully they can decide on which bundle of joy to add to their family. They both have their favorites but they can’t agree on which one. Could they handle two? Not a chance, thinks Angie.

killeenw01-040

Cindy Lou has finally earned Aria’s confidence to begin teaching her to say words.

CL: Can you say Denim Coveralls, Aria?

Aria: Dem-em Caberells

CL: Good try!

killeenw01-041

Tabitha Landgraab carefully draws a picture of her favorite animal, a llama!

killeenw01-042

Angie finally makes it to the Day Care and tears Faith away from her play group for her lesson.

killeenw01-043

killeenw01-045

killeenw01-053

The first skill point earned of the day is Jacoby with the help of Butterfly and Violet Darkbloom.

killeenw01-054

killeenw01-056

Roman Firestone also earns a mechanical skill after joining Tabitha and Aiden Biltmore.

killeenw01-057

Faith is having a hard time learning her sounds and gets a little grumpy because of it.

killeenw01-058

Gwyneth: She’s so dumb, just like her sister.

Cyan: Uh-huh.

Dude, she’s right next to you! Mean Girls start in preschool, yo.

killeenw01-059

Heath Biltmore is determined to find the right hole for the peg.

killeenw01-060

Malcolm Landgraab, the younger, and Henry Lambswool both play with the crazy-eyes bunny head.

killeenw01-062

killeenw01-063

Elise, Holly, and Poem bond at the activity table.

killeenw01-066

killeenw01-069

killeenw01-086

Great job Eve Goodacre!

killeenw01-087

killeenw01-088

Heath: *RAGES!!!*

killeenw01-089

Sometimes Angie becomes frustrated when the little ones don’t want to learn but she’s determined to get them talking. There hasn’t been a child she couldn’t teach yet!

killeenw01-090

On the other hand, Cindy Lou is doing really well with Aria. She’s a fast learner.

killeenw01-091

killeenw01-094

killeenw01-095

Kira Yomoshoto: Are you done with that yet?

Cyan: Step off, Glasses!

killeenw01-096

Faith is finally starting to get the hang of it!

killeenw01-097

killeenw01-099

Aria is now amongst the talking!

killeenw01-100

killeenw01-101

He doesn’t seem too happy about it, though. ๐Ÿ˜ž

killeenw01-102

No time to wallow in your sadness, Vin. It’s time for your lesson.

killeenw01-104

killeenw01-106

killeenw01-108

Violet is the first one in the nap room.

killeenw01-109

killeenw01-110

killeenw01-112

killeenw01-113

Miss Angie knew she could do it! Little Faith can now talk!

killeenw01-115

killeenw01-117

killeenw01-119

The potty trained can see their own way to the potty.

killeenw01-120

killeenw01-121

It’s getting to the end of the day as more and more toddlers head to the nap room or complain that they need a nap.

killeenw01-123

Angie tries to sneak in a little learning before it’s time to go.

killeenw01-125

killeenw01-127

killeenw01-128

killeenw01-129

As the parents stop by to collect their wee ones…

killeenw01-132

Cindy Lou releases the tots for the day.

killeenw01-135

killeenw01-136

killeenw01-137

Great Plumbob that’s a lot of toddlers!

killeenw01-133

Angie cleans up the Day Care before heading upstairs…

killeenw01-138

killeenw01-139

and Cindy Lou makes a healthy autumn salad for dinner.

killeenw01-140

killeenw01-141

Angie freshens up…

killeenw01-144

and joins Cindy Lou.

killeenw01-145

At dinner Angie brings up adopting one of the orphans again. With everything going on Cindy Lou is more than cautious about letting a little life into their home. What if she blacks-out while she’s alone with the child and leaves it?, she thinks. Out loud she tells Angie she’s more than ready for a baby but she’s concerned that they pick the right one.

killeenw01-149

killeenw01-150

Angie assures CL that everything will be fine. They are both excellent teachers so of course they would be excellent mothers. She does agree that they had to find the perfect child for their family. Over the next few days they would pay more attention to the orphans to find the one that will steal their hearts.

killeenw01-152

killeenw01-153

While Angie showers…

killeenw01-158

Cindy Lou begins the outline of the children’s novel she has wanted to write. With her current circumstances, she thought this might be a way to introduce supernatural characters to Oceanside that were lovable enough that the residents wouldn’t be so afraid of them — just in case she finds out she is one.

killeenw01-157

Cindy Lou’s novel will be about a young orphan girl named Tyra Thorpe who finds out that she is a witch. She takes a rocket ship to attend a witchcraft school in space which is magically disguised as a large office building. Along with the help of her alien/witch friends Noel Sawyer and Morghan Greenier, the trio solve the mystery of an evil alien cultist that resurrects the God Cthulhu and unleashes it on the school. She calls it “Tyra Thorpe and The Cell of Cthulhu” by CL Killeen.

killeenw01-161

Angie continues cleaning…

killeenw01-162

while Cindy Lou suffers a bit of writer’s block.

killeenw01-164

killeenw01-170

When Angie turns in for the night…

killeenw01-172

Cindy Lou decides to call it a night herself.

killeenw01-173

Monday, Day 15

“The Best Little Day Care In Oceanside”

killeenw01-008

killeenw01-010

After a long good morning cuddle…

killeenw01-012

the ladies are ready to start their busy day.

killeenw01-013

killeenw01-014

killeenw01-015

killeenw01-017

Cindy Lou makes breakfast…

killeenw01-020

and Angie kills time harassing the fish.

killeenw01-024

Angie: Blub-blub-blub-blub…

killeenw01-025

She’s so silly.

killeenw01-028

killeenw01-030

Pankcakes! Yum!

killeenw01-032

Cindy Lou loves how much Angie enjoys her cooking.

killeenw01-033

Angie hurries downstairs to meet the arriving students.

killeenw01-035

She resumes her lessons with the young Mr. Landgraab however he’s a little cranky pants today.

killeenw01-036

Butterfly and Jacoby never seem to be too far away from each other.

*Yep, totally shipping it already*

killeenw01-037

killeenw01-038

killeenw01-039

SEE! I’m not lying!

killeenw01-040

#stankface

killeenw01-041

Tabitha returns to her beloved activity table to play with the blocks.

killeenw01-042

Gwyn makes mushroom music.

killeenw01-043

Cyan is totally consumed with the pink rabbit.

killeenw01-044

killeenw01-045

Bianca snuggles with Moo-shell.

killeenw01-046

Jacoby breaks away from Butterfly’s watchful gaze to gnaw on a block.

killeenw01-047

*Gasp* Faith speaks!

Faith: I have a new brother and sister!

DAWWWWWW!

killeenw01-048

Kenna crawls all over Elise and her shape toy.

Elise: Excuuuuse me! ๐Ÿ˜ 

killeenw01-049

Cindy Lou resumes her lessons with Vin who also isn’t very receptive. Shocker.

killeenw01-050

killeenw01-051

Nico: So you’re saying that if I chew on this it will fit better?

Jacoby: *with a mouth full of wood* Um-hum.

killeenw01-053

Elise has a hard time fitting the shapes in the holes. Maybe she can magick them in

killeenw01-055

I’m Blue da ba dee da ba daa…

killeenw01-061

killeenw01-063

Aria is already quite familiar with the xylophone. She plays one at home all of the time.

killeenw01-064

Aiden heads to the shape toy…

killeenw01-065

Liam paints…

killeenw01-066

and Skye…

killeenw01-067

and Gianna play with the rabbit head.

killeenw01-068

Hiro’s back at the activity table.

killeenw01-069

Jude realizes that green is his favorite color.

killeenw01-070

Violet quietly plays with the rabbit head away from the other children.

killeenw01-072

The Day Care is jumping. Look at all of those skilling plumbobs!

killeenw01-073

killeenw01-074

killeenw01-075

killeenw01-078

Piper looks as though she’s way beyond such a simple instrument. Give her some drums!

killeenw01-079

Bianca seems a bit startled by the flashing lights of the fire truck. Maybe she remembers more of the fire than I previously thought.

killeenw01-081

killeenw01-082

Way to go, Vin!

killeenw01-083

Cindy Lou then turns her attention to Princess Tabitha.

killeenw01-086

What a stubborn little girl!, thinks Cindy Lou.

killeenw01-087

Ezra bangs the rabbit head so hard that he almost breaks it.

killeenw01-088

killeenw01-089

The Goodacre sisters monopolize the fairy treehouse.

killeenw01-090

No Butterfly, don’t play with the broken robot!

killeenw01-091

killeenw01-093

killeenw01-094

He did it!

killeenw01-096

killeenw01-097

killeenw01-098

Angie’s next victim is her BFF’s son, Hiro.

killeenw01-115

The blondies become *besties*

killeenw01-116

Yasmin Onnen, Natural Scientist, sneaks up to the Killeen Day Care angry although not sure why…

killeenw01-118

Even though she was a bridesmaid at their wedding, Yaz never really liked Cindy Lou and doesn’t think she’s good enough for Angie, her BFF.

killeenw01-119

There’s just something about her that rubs Yasmin the wrong way. She doesn’t know why she does it, but Yasmin kicks over their trash in disgust.

killeenw01-120

With the rash of trash-tipping incidents no one will know she’s the one who did it — she hopes.

killeenw01-121

killeenw01-122

killeenw01-123

killeenw01-126

killeenw01-127

killeenw01-128

Seriously Eve, she can’t go when you’re watching her!

killeenw01-129

killeenw01-131

killeenw01-132

killeenw01-133

It’s lunch time for Vin!

killeenw01-137

Malcolm loves chewing on the dolls.

killeenw01-138

The nap room begins to fill up.

killeenw01-140

It’s hard to be social with them when they’re playing with the rabbit head all day!!!

killeenw01-142

killeenw01-146

killeenw01-147

Good job, Bitsy!

killeenw01-148

CL takes a minute to tackle the smoking fire hazard toy.

killeenw01-149

Angie is still at it with Hiro. She’s determined to get him talking before she dismisses the children for the day.

killeenw01-152

Most of the kids are already taking naps.

killeenw01-155

Yay! He did it!!

killeenw01-163

The kidlets are free to go. Most of them, however, really need to go.

killeenw01-159

As she walks the children out Cindy Lou gets a whiff of something that smells terrible on the side of the house. When she gets there she can’t believe somesim knocked over her trash. Don’t they care that the children could get sick? Who does that?

killeenw01-165

As she touches the trashcan a vision forms in her head.

Cindy Lou: Yasmin? Yasmin did this? Why?

killeenw01-166

She couldn’t believe it but she knew what she was seeing in her head was true. She didn’t understand why Yasmin would do this to her best friend but more importantly what does this mean? Could I be psychic, thought Cindy Lou?

killeenw01-170

As Cindy Lou went about her chores all of her thoughts were about her newfound psychic ability. If she was psychic that meant that she wasn’t supernatural at all, it just meant that she could feel supernatural presences more than other sims.

killeenw01-173

That was fantastic, thought Cindy Lou. But then that meant that one of the toddlers from the orphanage was supernatural. She knew what she must do — she couldn’t let anything happen to that child. She had to protect it with her life.

killeenw01-175

Now, to find out who it is.

killeenw01-177

After a long day of screaming children it was nice to just soak in a bubble bath and forget your cares.

killeenw01-178

After her bath, Angie cashes the checks she received from babysitting.

killeenw01-179

killeenw01-180

Salmon!

killeenw01-182

Angie is so thankful she found a gal who is an excellent cook. She never wants to go back to the days of eating burnt soup for dinner.

killeenw01-186

Over dinner Cindy Lou carefully gets a read on Angie’s opinions of supernaturals.

Cindy Lou: Do you think the Oceansidians would be alarmed if they found out there was a supernatural sim in the hood?

killeenw01-188

Angie: *chokes on fish*

killeenw01-189

Cindy Lou: *hopes are crushed*

killeenw01-190

Angie: They would definitely be alarmed. These founders are so superstitious about anything that isn’t the norm. Just because supernaturals destroyed wherever they were from doesn’t mean they would do it here. Supes are just like you and me — they just want a family and friends and love.

killeenw01-194

Cindy Lou was so happy with Angie’s answer that she took her to bed right away!

killeenw01-195

She knew her Angie would feel the same way she did.

killeenw01-198

She never should have doubted her.

killeenw01-199

But she would keep the whole psychic thing to herself for now. First she needed to learn more about it — and find the supernatural child.

killeenw01-032

Tabitha: My hero!

killeenw01-047

Vin: *talks!* When I grow up I want to take a rocket ship to Sixam!

*Knowledge sim in the making*

killeenw01-048

killeenw01-052

She did it!

killeenw01-053

killeenw01-055

killeenw01-056

Angie takes Jacoby away from his adoring fans to start his lesson.

killeenw01-057

Yay Riley!

*First time I’ve ever received this symbol over their heads…*

killeenw01-060

Cindy Lou grabs Jude for his lesson next.

killeenw01-061

killeenw01-062

killeenw01-063

Jude and Cindy Lou start off on the wrong foot. First he barfs on her…

killeenw01-064

then he refuses to speak. Boy, she’s going to have a tough time with this one.

See, this why the parents pay the big bucks — non-stop skilling!

killeenw01-081

Butterfly is the cutest little toddler in Oceanside.

killeenw01-090

killeenw01-092

killeenw01-094

The kidlets start to head to the nap room.

killeenw01-095

Butterfly really likes the Day Care. It’s so much fun! Miss Angie is so nice, she wishes she could stay here all of the time.

killeenw01-096

killeenw01-098

Don’t kill it, Malcolm!

killeenw01-099

OhMyGuy they’re playing with the rabbit!! I can’t help that they aren’t talking to anyone!!

killeenw01-105

killeenw01-107

Shush you! And Piper’s asleep for heaven’s sake.

killeenw01-108

The bathroom is being invaded by potty trained munchkins!

killeenw01-110

Jacoby learns how to talk…

killeenw01-113

and so does Jude.

killeenw01-114

Time for the little buggers to go home.

killeenw01-115

killeenw01-118

In the evening Angie sets up a buffet table for the incoming guests.

killeenw01-119

killeenw01-121

Tonight will be the Day Care’s first ever Back-to-School Night. She wants the parents to come down and see the facility and talk to them about the curriculum. She hopes they behave themselves.

killeenw01-125

killeenw01-126

I see you Sadie Biltmore!

killeenw01-127

Cindy Lou and Angie are famished so they grab dinner before mingling with the parents.

killeenw01-129

It all goes to shit rather quickly when Brodie Mason and Minka Yomoshoto come within two feet of each other.

killeenw01-133

killeenw01-134

Cindy Lou: How do you think they’re doing down there?

Angie: Oh, I’m sure they’re fine.

killeenw01-135

Vivian and Malcolm Landgraab, the elder, sneak in snuggle time.

killeenw01-136

Minka: *thinks* Oh Watcher, why is he here?

Minka does not want another scene with her ex, Achilles Brook, especially not at her children’s school.

killeenw01-138

Minka’s new husband, Diego Bossanova, swoops in just in time to save his girl. Achilles is not amused.

killeenw01-140

killeenw01-141

Becca Goodacre compliments Connor Firestone on his super clean worksuit. Selena, go save your man from mindless chitchat.

killeenw01-142

Achilles gets into it again with Diego. He just can’t let go of his anger and disappointment of losing Minka to this guy.

killeenw01-146

*Enemies*

killeenw01-147

Minka immediately steps inside the Day Care to pick at her ex Kendrick Troubadour. Really guys, this isn’t how parents are supposed to act!

killeenw01-149

Brodie: If you got a problem with my man you best talk to me — not him. I kicked your ass once and I’ll do it again, Missy.

killeenw01-150

Malcolm tries to hide in the Killeen’s apartment to escape all of the poking and shoving. He really doesn’t want to put his friends behind bars.

killeenw01-152

Malcolm’s biggest fan, Felicity Wayward is never too far behind — especially when his wife isn’t around.

killeenw01-151

Kent Healey and Matisse Troubadour escape the drama by hiding in the hot tub.

killeenw01-153

Sadie and hubby Fitz Biltmore are excited to learn what their brood has been up to while they’re here.

killeenw01-155

Nope, not a marriage proposal. Kendrick stops and sings his praises of Brodie for sticking up for him with Minka.

killeenw01-156

George Lambswool is super embarrassed for them. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

killeenw01-158

Angie calls all of the parents into the main room to tell them about the facility.

killeenw01-160

However some parents…

killeenw01-161

are otherwise…

killeenw01-162

occupied.

killeenw01-167

Achilles and Diego move their argument inside and begin slapping each other.

killeenw01-170

Now that most of the parents are in the room, Angie waits for her wife to join her before starting her announcement.

killeenw01-171

Cindy Lou, with a dreamy, far-off look and her nose stuck in a book, hurries down to meet the parents.

killeenw01-172

NOT AT ALL APPROPRIATE!

killeenw01-173

Brodie consults with her Cup On A Stick buddy…

Brodie: Do I cut a bitch now, or wait til later?

killeenw01-178

Fitz becomes acquainted with Mr. Bear Naked.

killeenw01-180

Owen Goodacre thinks now is the perfect time to romance the Mrs.

killeenw01-182

Kendrick: Give a kiss for good luck, babe. I’m going in.

Brodie: W-wwhaaat!!!???

killeenw01-183

Angie speaks to George regarding his children’s education. Antonio is tied with Kira at the top of the class! Bianca is a little genius. Henry and Oscar are also doing quite well. George is so proud to hear it.

killeenw01-184

Achilles asks Cindy Lou how Hiro is doing. He’s very worried about him, especially since he isn’t at home anymore. Cindy Lou reassures Achilles that Hiro is doing just fine and that he’s a fast learner. Minka eavesdrops but tries not to be too obvious about it.

killeenw01-186

Fitz let’s out some of his aggression on Mr. Bear Naked. ๐Ÿ˜จ

killeenw01-188

killeenw01-189

Achilles: Yes, but are you doing any science experiments with the students?

Cindy Lou: *sarcastically* Sure, we let toddlers handle dangerous chemicals all of the time.

Minka: Ugh, Achilles…

killeenw01-190

Cindy Lou moves on to Felicity to tell her how her wards are faring when Kendrick approaches Minka.

killeenw01-192

Still pissed about losing a fight to Minka, Kendrick goes in for blood.

killeenw01-193

Brodie: Kick her ass, babe. I’ma be over here.

killeenw01-195

Minka’s husband won’t save her this time. He’s too busy staring at Matisse in a bikini.

killeenw01-196

Unaware of the volatile situation behind her, Angie speaks with Malcolm about his daughter’s nasty attitude towards some of the other students. Unfortunately Malcolm doesn’t give a damn. Gwyneth will age up in the Spring and won’t be a student here anymore.

killeenw01-197

*Angry Conversation Besties*

killeenw01-201

And then all hell breaks loose.

killeenw01-205

Upstairs…

killeenw01-207

killeenw01-208

*Cue the theme from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly*

killeenw01-209

Sadie: This should be entertaining…

You’re useless Sadie.

killeenw01-215

killeenw01-218

DING DING DING

The winner is Kendrick Troubadour.

killeenw01-220

A vindicated Kendrick beams with pride.

Kendrick: I finally did it! I beat her!

And you’re proud of this?

killeenw01-221

Minka vows to get back at Kendrick and Brodie for humiliating her like this — by any means necessary.

killeenw01-222

Kendrick and Brodie: *stare daggers*

killeenw01-226

After the fight, Angie lets Malcolm know that she’s glad they’ve become close. Now, she thinks, maybe she can get Malcolm to pay Cindy Lou’s salary at the Day Care.

killeenw01-229

As more of the parents head upstairs to eat and socialize…

killeenw01-230

Diego finds his damsel in distress and comforts her.

killeenw01-233

Minka then cuddles with Mr. Bear Naked. Even though she has Diego she still feels all alone. This is the lowest she’s ever felt.

killeenw01-237

Since all of the excitement has died down, Cindy Lou approaches Felicity again to inquire about anything strange or unusual that may be occurring at the orphanage.

Felicity: Well, besides Elise levitating when she dances every now and again, I would say no.

killeenw01-246

Malcolm: You know Angie, no one on this island is more concerned with the well-being of our citizens — besides me of course — than you. I’m in need of a running mate. Are you interested in being Deputy Mayor?

Angie: *plus plus relationship*

killeenw01-248

Cindy Lou knew it. Elise — of course! That’s why she was so drawn to her. CL has already spent a lot of time with Elise at the orphange and she was top on the list of the kids she wanted to adopt.ย  Now to convince Angie she’s the child they needed to add to the family.

killeenw01-254

Minka: Shit, is there somesim behind me? *smile* *smile*

Kendrick: *growls*

Felicity: Great Plumbob, why doesn’t he leave her alone!

killeenw01-255

WHAT ARE YOU DOING BACK IN THE HOT TUB!!!????

killeenw01-256

Kendrick starts in on Minka again, slapping her in the face.

Minka: Where’s my husband!?

killeenw01-259

Then she’s double teamed by Brodie!

s-h-i-e-l-d-we-have-got-to-save-her-animated-gifs

killeenw01-261

Saved by the bell.

Worst. Back-to-School Night. Ever. killeenw01-267

Once the parents finally clear out…

killeenw01-272

CL and Angie go to bed.

Wednesday, Day 17

“Can You Say Mommy?”

killeenw01-001

Today is the day, thinks Angie.

killeenw01-002

Angie rises early and gets ready before Cindy Lou wakes up. They needed to decide today who they were going to adopt. Angie didn’t want to go another season without being a Mom.

killeenw01-003

killeenw01-004

killeenw01-006

Today is the day, thinks Cindy Lou. Somehow she has to convince Angie to choose Elise. She is my destiny, thinks Cindy Lou.

killeenw01-007

killeenw01-008

killeenw01-011

killeenw01-013

killeenw01-015

At breakfast Cindy Lou speaks up and tells Angie that her mind is set on adopting Elise. Angie sighs and tells Cindy Lou that her mind is set on adopting Butterfly.

killeenw01-017

Cindy Lou: Couldn’t we take them both? We have more than enough room and those two are like sisters already. We couldn’t separate them!

*OK I know I’m reaching with the two eggs talk bubble, but I think it works. Don’t fuss at me!*

killeenw01-019

After a lengthy discussion Angie gives in. She loves CL and will ultimately do whatever she wants.

killeenw01-022

CL calls the Social Worker…

killeenw01-025

killeenw01-033

who brings Elise and Butterfly to their new home!

killeenw01-035

killeenw01-038

my-emotions

killeenw01-041

After changing the girls into new clothes they take a trip upstairs to show them their new digs.

killeenw01-044

But first each girl gets a new hairstyle.

killeenw01-046

killeenw01-048

Butterfly’s room is blue and filled with — you guessed it — butterflies!

killeenw01-049

killeenw01-050

killeenw01-051

killeenw01-053

Elise’s room is yellow and a little more eclectic.

killeenw01-054

killeenw01-055

killeenw01-056

killeenw01-057

Butterfly can’t believe she has a room all to herself!

killeenw01-059

Elise is super excited as well. Is this a dream? Has she really been adopted?

killeenw01-062

Felicity is so happy that two of her kids have found homes, but she has to get down to business with the new mothers.

Felicity: There is a placement fee of ยง900 per child that needs to be paid to the orphanage.

Angie: What the hell? Are you selling babies!?

killeenw01-064

Felicity: N-no, it’s the law. That’s how Malcolm Landgraab set it up… ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

killeenw01-069

Hmmm, thinks Angie, maybe I will need to become Malcolm’s running mate. The law needs to be changed!

killeenw01-066

Elise crawls into Butterfly’s room and delicately holds the peach bunny bear sitting up against the wall.

Elise: I’m home. This is my home.

killeenw01-071

As Butterfly examines the fish, Angie sits down at the desk to write a check to Felicity. All of the anger quickly dissolves looking at her daughter. She’s worth it, thinks Angie.

killeenw01-072

killeenw01-073

killeenw01-075

When Butterfly calls out “Mommy” it’s all Angie can do to keep from crying. How long she has waited to hear those words!

killeenw01-079

killeenw01-081

Cindy Lou grabs Elise and begins to teach her how to talk. Cindy Lou is very emotional but is trying to hold it together.

killeenw01-087

Angie plops down next to her and teaches Butterfly a nursery rhyme.

killeenw01-089

Elise: Mommy!

Finally, clear as day, Elise calls Cindy Lou “Mommy!” *tear*

killeenw01-096

The Killeens: *bond*

Felicity: I wish I was married to Malcolm Landgraab…

killeenw01-097

killeenw01-099

Elise quickly learns how to talk!

killeenw01-102

Next up — potty training.

killeenw01-104

killeenw01-105

Felicity grabs a drink from the bar and sits down. She knows she should be happy for Butterfly and Elise — this is what her job is — but instead she feels a bit melancholy.

killeenw01-107

Maybe it was the happiness of the families coming together — a feeling she knows she will never have if she stays a Social Worker.

killeenw01-108

killeenw01-109

After learning a nursery rhyme…

killeenw01-114

Angie begins potty training Butterfly.

killeenw01-111

Felicity: *thinks* Maybe I should just quit and adopt my own kids.

killeenw01-112

CL wonders if Felicity is OK. She’s not her usual chipper self.

killeenw01-115

killeenw01-120

Cindy Lou begins a celebratory dinner for her new family and Felicity.

killeenw01-129

killeenw01-134

The girls devour their first solid meal, Goopy Carbonara!

killeenw01-142

Cindy Lou thinks she knows what’s bothering Felicity.

Cindy Lou: Ang, we need to introduce Felicity to some of the eligible guys in Oceanside!

killeenw01-144

Elise and Butterfly are so patient and do not cause a fuss when they’re done and ready to be put down. ๐Ÿ˜Š

killeenw01-148

killeenw01-150

Angie grabs Elise…

killeenw01-152

and lays her down for the night.

killeenw01-153

Butterfly: Miss Felicity’s sad…

Awwwwww!

killeenw01-154

Next it’s Butterfly’s turn for bed.

killeenw01-156

killeenw01-159

Cindy Lou: Good night, Boo Boo.

killeenw01-162

Angie’s not too sure she should introduce Felicity to any of the guys in town. Angie kind of fancies her for herself.

killeenw01-164

Cindy Lou feels a tinge of regret not telling Angie the real reason she was so adamant about adopting Elise. Just because you can tolerate supernatural sims doesn’t mean you want to raise one. One day she will have to tell her — before Elise’s powers start to manifest — but not today.

killeenw01-166

Today was a perfect day. She doesn’t want to ruin it.

killeenw01-169

killeenw01-172

Notes

  • I chose Butterfly and Elise to be adopted by Angie and Cindy Lou because Angie had the highest score with Butterfly and Cindy Lou had the highest score with Elise. I originally only wanted them to adopt one child but I couldn’t choose between the two! And since two additional kids have moved into the Orphanage (the Yomoshoto kids) I thought it best to have two move out.
  • I did not have Butterfly and Elise “put up for adoption” and then had the Killeens “call to adopt” because I was afraid the children would lose their memories. Instead I used Simblender to move them in, added to the family, and made Angie and Cindy Lou their parents. The kids no longer have family ties to Felicity. Unfortunately this does not fill the “Have a baby” want so I manually fulfilled it.
