“Eight Is Enough”
Warnings: child endangerment, a glitchy community lot, the Garden Club Mafia, vandalism, poking, and the brief return of Flour Sack Baby
Sunday, Day 14
“Biltmore & Pooch”
WINTER IS HERE!!!!!
Although you’d never be able to tell in this tropical paradise. Welcome back to the most chaotic house on the island — The Biltmores! In case you forgot them, here’s a quick recap.
Fitz Biltmore — the level 4 Head of The Construction Company, builder of Oceanside, father of the most children in town, OG ginger nerd hottie — takes his baby girl Kenna to her crib for a nap in the wee hours of the morning.
First born Heath wanders aimlessly outside — also unsupervised.
Star-studded puppy Cinders chews on an old rolled-up newspaper.
And Sadie — former firefighter now at level 1 of her dream career in Law Enforcement — cuddles baby Ezra before laying him down for a nap. Whoosh, you got all of that? Don’t worry there won’t be a test at the end.
The Biltmore’s home is an absolute disaster. Neither parent has time to clean up really and the poor children usually have to fend for themselves.
But the kids are happy and healthy and that’s all that matters.
While Sadie tends to the kids Fitz enjoys a nice breakfast while reminiscing of last night’s woohoo.
Bruce Jelleff, Garden Club Enforcer, cases the joint early in the morning. He’s heard Sadie has been appointed as the first police officer in town. Bruce takes a look around so he can report back to his boss.
Some guard dog you are, Mr. Cinders!
Sadie tries her best to potty train the boys.
Oh, did I mention that SADIE IS PREGNANT AGAIN!!!!
After taking care of the munchkins, Sadie takes off to her new workplace — The Oceanside Police Station!
Cinders comes along for the ride in Sadie’s government-appointed police interceptor. Sadie thinks Cinders will make a great police dog one day.
Heath narrowly misses being ran over by his mom! WHO IS WATCHING THE CHILDREN FOR WATCHER’S SAKE!
The Oceanside Police Station is located at 25 Landgraab Avenue across the street from the Lambswool’s Nectary and Founders’ Field. It’s a small building meant to handle a small town’s crime element.
At the front desk Sadie can talk to citizens and find out why the heck they’re bothering her with their nonsense.
Just like the Fire Station, Sadie sells alarms to the citizens interested in stopping crime.
And here’s where she’ll use the lie detector on that criminal Kent Healey and make him sing like a canary!
On this wall are the “Wanted” posters and the lost and found board. Right next to that is where Sadie will take Kent Healey’s mug shot when she arrests him!
Of course the only real wanted sim is Rowena De Hommel aka The Oceanside Cat Burglar!
*sings theme song* The Oceanside Cat Burglar!
Rowena: Meow…. dahling!
Right on the other side of the wall is Kent’s soon-to-be new home — the jail cell! Now if she could only gather enough evidence to put him away for good!
Cinders’ first order of business — chasing his tail around for an hour.
Sadie pours Bow Wow Chow in a caution tape covered bowl for her police puppy.
She dons her spiffy new uniform…
and opens the station for the day.
Sadie is so excited to be away from the kids for the day! She knows she needs to stay in tip top shape in order to defeat the baddies. Skipping rope is the perfect exercise to do in the station when it’s not busy.
What’s that boy? A clue?
Nope. Cinders just wants to wiggle in the cool dirt. Top police dog this one is.
The first citizen to pop in and check out the new police station is Science Guy™ Achilles Brook. He seems really interested in the burglar alarms.
Next is the ridiculously pretty Garden Clubber Tiara Hough.
What’s that boy? Why did you stop playing in the dirt?
He stopped to GROWL AT TIARA! Look at that, he’s already a better cop than Sadie. He knows who the real bad guys are!
Politician Malcolm Landgraab rounds out the morning’s visitors. Malcolm relishes in his new curvier physique.
Sadie turns on the charm for Achilles.
Sadie: These burglar alarms will give you piece of mind, sounding off as soon as the Big Bad enters your home. You’ll never have to worry about bubble head Kent Healey murdering you in your sleep again!
Please stop. Kent Healey is not the criminal mastermind you think he is. He can barely do math!
Sadie turns her attention to Tiara.
Tiara: So you’re saying the alarm will go off as soon as an intruder enters the lot? And a police officer will come and investigate? Interesting… very interesting…
Tiara doesn’t want to buy an alarm but Sadie has given her a lot of information to relay to her boss…
Sadie: I’m FINE Malcolm! Flour Sack Baby is totes gone! I’m perfectly sane!
As Malcolm and Sadie become besties…
Achilles grabs an alarm and is ready to be rung up. He must have something that he wants to keep safe and secure.
Sadie has a little bit of trouble programming the alarm into the system…
but she finally completes the transaction. Gratz Achilles! You are the first resident to purchase a burglar alarm!
After Achilles leaves Sadie grabs an instant meal and takes a small break.
What’s that boy? Did you find a clue? Does this shoe belong to the captivating cat burglar?
Sadie’s break is cut short when educator Selena Firestone saunters into the station looking distressed.
Selena: Where are the burglar alarms?
THEY’RE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, YOU GNAT!!
Sadie graciously helps Selena find the alarms even though she doesn’t like her very much. Selena’s married to Sadie’s bestie Connor Firestone. She would hate to think some evil criminal would break in and harm their family.
A tired Cinders finds a place to rest on the top bunk of the jail cell.
After restocking the purchased alarm…
Sadie gets the bright idea to test out the lie detector. She wants to see if someone would be able to fake the machine out!
Sadie: Why no, Officer. I did not plant a bomb in Minka Yomoshoto’s house. I would never want to harm her!
Sadie: Owwww! I guess this contraption is working correctly…
Sadie Biltmore! You naughty girl!
Tiara: The cops have a lie detector machine too? Oh, boy. The Boss is not going to like this!
Who you telling?
Sadie keeps trying to beat the machine…
and keeps failing miserably.
Sadie: Teehee, I can’t wait to use it on the bad guys!!
Sadie is ready to call it quits. Time to lock up the station for the day.
Time for Sadie and Cinders to head back home.
Back at the house…
Heath: I can’t believe my mom almost ran me over!
Sadie and Cinders are back from their trip.
*Note – The Police Station got corrupted and Sadie and Cinders couldn’t leave the lot. Then I couldn’t play the Biltmore house because it said I had someone still on the business lot. I had to fiddle with SimPe so she could come back home. Then I couldn’t go back into the Police Station because it said there was a game saving over there. In order to fix it I had to sell the lot, revert to a backup of the Police Station lot, and buy it again. Luckily I back up the whole neighborhood folder after each play period ^.^ Everything’s fine now but that’s why Sadie is back so soon instead of at 5pm like she’s supposed to. Long story is long. Back up your stuff, yo.
Again Sadie is suffering from painful cramps and a sour stomach during her first trimester. You better not have another set of twins in there, Missy!
Smart puppy Cinders washes away all of the dirt with the water wiggler.
Then gives his master Heath a big, wet kiss hello.
You know how you can tell it’s Winter? Townies walking by in ~interesting~ outerwear. Heaven Gallo, another member of the Garden Club Mafia, stops by to check on things. The Garden Club seems pretty interested in the town’s new Police Officer…
Fitz takes a break from napping to take care of his screaming baby girl.
Cutie pie Aiden is up too.
The Biltmores found more fish to add to the aquarium since the last ones were neglected to death. Sadie’s top priority is keeping this group alive since most of the kids have a fear of the fish dying.
Being his only legitimate daughter, Fitz excessively dotes on baby Kenna. She’ll be spoiled rotten before you know it.
After changing Ezra…
Fitz tries to clean his filthy house. Great Plumbob that’s a nasty looking toilet!
Back to potty training.
But it’s kind of hard to go when you have an audience.
Cinders is so sleepy after a long day at the station…
that he doesn’t notice Wanda the Wolf eating his newspaper.
Gavin: Clown-in-a-box, you’re my best friend.
Heath: *giggles* He’s so weird!
Sadie takes a late afternoon nap.
However Sadie can’t get any sleep when there’s a stinky Gavin around!
Whatcha doing town doctor — and Fitz’s baby’s mama — Minka Yomoshoto? Why are you creeping up to the Biltmore house?
*Minka: peeks in the window and sees happiness*
Minka: They’re such a happy family. So much love *tear*
Awwww Minka. You’ll find your true love one day — and believe me it’s not Diego Bossanova!
After cleaning all of the yucky potty chairs…
Fitz takes a quick shower.
Gavin and Heath huggle to best friends!
You ain’t never lied.
In Sadie’s new position as a Security Guard she has to work the night shift. Hopefully she’s rested enough to be of any use.
She takes a quick shower…
and goes on her first official patrol!
Fitz takes care of the babies…
and calls it a night.
Monday, Day 15
“The Garden Club Strikes Back”
Way to go Sadie!
*pimp struts through the yard*
Still jazzed about being accepted into the Police Academy, Sadie plays a few games of soccer down on the beach.
That old morning sickness gets to her however and she eventually has to stop.
On the bright side she is officially fit!
But even fit moms have to change their baby’s diapers.
Fitz, already woken up by a stinky Gavin, gets a head start on the day. Today is tax day! He promptly sends his 10% to treasurer Vivian Landgraab.
On her way to bed *pop #1*
Gavin takes a turn in the potty chair.
Heath: Dada, book!
Fitz, the literature enthusiast, would never deny his kids the tales of “The Mysterious Mr. Gnome!“
Fitz really gets into character while reading one of the stories, “Denim Coveralls.“
I’m sure Aiden can win Faith back with a little huggle.
Ick! Poor Cinders!
Twins 2.0 are awake and screaming…
And Sadie has a queue of little boys wanting her attention. Must be Monday.
After feeding and changing, Kenna is placed in her jumpy for some fun.
Aiden: Good, they’re still alive.
I told you we would take care of them this time.
Aiden: Mama, book!
Sadie: Ugh, let’s skip “Denim Coveralls.” Let’s read “So Long, Kitty.”
Aiden: But I like “Denim Coveralls” *pouts*
Soon it’s time for breakfast. Sadie masters shrimp gumbo on her first try.
Everyone loves Gavin.
After breakfast Sadie cleans out Cinders’ disgustingly dirty dog house.
You’re halfway to unlocking the Business District! You go, Fitz!
The celebration ends when Fitz walks into a house full of stinky children.
While Fitz grabs a cup of coffee…
Sadie takes a much-needed bath break.
At first I’m all, “Yay” but then I think, “WTF five toddlers!!!????”
While the Biltmores enjoy their family time, a lone sim creeps from the shadows. No longer is he hiding behind his minions or the guise of “The Garden Club.”
The real Criminal Mastermind Kingpin of Oceanside wants to send a clear and deadly message…
that the Oceanside Police Department better stay out of Rocky Kotsomiti’s affairs… or else.
After a quick dinner Sadie retires for the night oblivious to what just happened outside.
Fitz: Did Cinders knock over the trash? I’m going to have to scold that puppy!
Tuesday, Day 16
“Cakes For The Enemies”
Ugh, these kids need to be potty trained — stat!
*Aiden might be my favorite Biltmore. Not even sorry.*
Comfort soup for breakfast.
Awww Gavin. The nap cushion was right beside you. So close!
Today is just not starting out right, is it?
Cinders finds a new playmate in Franz the Fox.
Fitz tends to Kenna and places her back into the jumpy.
It’s your last few moments of babydom, Kenna! Enjoy!
As he places Ezra in his jumpy Fitz changes into his Architect’s Apprentice duds and leaves for the office.
*Didn’t know Architects dressed like cowboys…*
It’s party time!
For this birthday Sadie and Fitz pull out all of the stops — a buffet table, balloons, and even outdoor music.
The guests arrive with the kidlets wearing their winter wear.
Eve Goodacre gets the party started.
Bianca Lambswool cuddles with Mr. Huggleston.
Just when everyone was getting along, here comes Minka and her pointy finger. Minka’s still pissed off at Brodie after finding out she slept with her man.
Brodie gives it right back to her!
Kendrick: Did she hurt you baby?
Brodie: That skinny twat couldn’t hurt me if she tried. Thank the Watcher you’re not with her anymore!
Kendrick: That’s for sure!
Minka: *pokes* What the hell did you just say, Kendrick Troubadour!?
Sadie: Excuse me while I get my BABY out of the line of fire!
Kendrick: *pokes back* YOU HEARD ME!
Sadie: *grumbles* …I am never inviting them over again; I don’t care if they’re Fitz’s friends!
And where’s Diego during all of this?
Diego: Just watching the show… heh heh. *wink*
Thank goodness it’s cake time! Kenna is up first.
Kenna Biltmore is a 6-3-6-3-7 Cancer with high interests in sports and animals. She’s inappropriate like Sadie and a bookworm like Fitz. She inherited her mom’s wavy hair and Fitz’s freckles but not his bad eyesight!
Oh dear. And right in front of your son, too.
Diego: Minka still pisses me off!
Aww come on. She apologized and everything. Stop being a poopy-face.
Cyan: Bitch stole my look!
*I guess I need to fix that* ^.^
Sadie is on point for this twin birthday! She’s ready to age up Ezra!
Yasmin Onnen, natural scientist and tree hugger, gives Kenna some love.
Yes, Rocky was invited. He and Fitz have become pretty close since their last chess match. However I’m not sure if he’s happy to be around Sadie and her brood. Looks like he’s thinking up a plan to kidnap Sadie’s only daughter!
Ezra Biltmore (no longer a clone of Heath!) is a 6-10-6-3-0 Aries with a high interest in entertainment. He’s easily impressed like Sadie and socially awkward like Fitz. He shares his mom’s wavy hair and has light freckles and a chin butt like his pa. No glasses for this one either!
Malcolm: Viv, don’t you want to have another baby?
Vivian: Do I look like I want to have another baby?
She’s wearing pearls in the hot tub… my guess is NO!
Bianca and Eve huggle!
Kenna found her true passion!
Then she returned outside to delight everyone in her stench.
While everyone’s having a good time, Sadie sneaks away to take a nap.
Twins 2.0 are NOT happy!
Pretty much everyone is grossed out by the stinky twins!
Cinders sniffs hello to Hortense the Hyena.
Aria and Faith Goodacre huggle!
I’m really hoping the pets will get high enough relationships with the strays. I would love some pet babies!
Fitz returns home just in time for…
more pokey pokey. To be fair Diego poked Kendrick first.
Yeah, I dunno…
Nico Firestone finds Mr. Huggleston ^.^
OK Kendrick, now you are just asking to be beat up!
Sheesh, I’m surprised it got that high a rating!
What’s the first thing Fitz does as soon as he gets home? He goes directly to his baby girl to see how much she’s grown.
Kenna’s a cutie too ^.^
Ezra conks out on a nap cushion.
With the kiddies settled Fitz takes to the tower to “survey” the land.
However none of the neighbors were doing anything exciting so Fitz resigns to his study to catch up on a Plumbob Holmes novel.
Sadie wakes up with the bathroom calling her name.
Recently married nanny Angie Killeen walks by with only one thing on her mind. ^.^ Don’t worry Angie, there just might be an adoption agency in Oceanside in the near future…
OH NO! Sadie rolled the fear of having a baby… again… right before she’s about to give birth!!!
And then she burns the shrimp gumbo…
Wednesday, Day 17
“FKA Sadie Winchester”
SuperMom Sadie takes care of the wee ones in the early morning as Fitz sleeps.
You can’t leave her alone for a minute, can you?
After a quick snack, right before heading to bed for the night…
NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! NOT THE FLOUR SACK BABY!!!!!
Sadie: Are you ready for a new brother or sister, Flour Sack Baby? Cootchie, cootchie coo!
She finally makes her way to bed when the contractions start.
It’s a boy!
Fitz: Alright dear, breathe. Just relax. Don’t start quacking like a duck again!
You are really no help Fitz Biltmore.
I guess you want to KILL YOUR WIFE!
Do you see the differences in the wants? Sadie is done having babies!
Winchester Biltmore, named after Sadie’s maiden name, has all of Sadie’s coloring: blonde hair, tan skin, and gray eyes. Sadie has decided that Winchester is her last baby — no matter what Fitz wants!
Of course Fitz is happy and excited to welcome a new baby boy into the family — especially one that is the spitting image of his mom.
While Sadie rests (thankfully no breakdown this time) Fitz feeds Winchester and places him in Twins 2.0’s nursery.
Yeah, I don’t think Sadie’s going to going to work today…
Luckily Fitz had the forethought to hire Nanny Angie to help out for the day. Sadie’s going to need all the help she can get with six kids!
Angie is the best nanny in the world!
Shush you, she was on her way to the bottle!
Sadie regains consciousness long enough to eat cereal for breakfast.
Cinders: The mailman’s here!
Don’t get too excited. Cinders and Lars the mailman are best buddies. ^.^
Eeep! I guess we need to pay more attention to how late the bills are!
Once again Angie is not happy with the state of the Biltmore’s home. She really hopes Malcolm listens to her and creates a social services department. These babies are living in filth!
While Angie takes care of the children Sadie skips rope hoping to gain the body skill needed to get another promotion on the force.
Angie gets to know new day care student Kenna. She and Cindy Lou will have their hands full this season.
Ezra finds his true passion dancing next to his mom!
After Kenna tosses her breakfast…
Angie sits her down to learn a nursery rhyme.
I think, at this point, Sadie has just given up 🙁
Ugh… Stop all your yimmer-yammer. Shy little Fitz just wants to be left alone.
Angie’s not a big cleaner but she feels like she can’t leave the house in the state that it’s in. Begrudgingly, Angie tidies up a bit.
Once Fitz is home he thanks Angie for all she’s done and sends her off.
Haha Heath! Good luck trying to raise your Aspiration Meter before your transition… sucker…
Sadie was still stressed out so, as a good watcher, I gave Sadie the one thing I knew only she would enjoy…
a pretty, pink punching bag!
Sadie: *punches* That’s for you, stupid Minka Yomoshoto! And take that, stupid bubble head Kent Healey! And this is for you, Fitz, getting me pregnant over, and over, and OVER AGAIN!!
Thank you for reading! ^.^
Notes: Unfortunately Fitz wasn’t able to do an outing for the Top Hat Society. The only other member is Owen Goodacre who doesn’t really like him and wouldn’t go out with him. 🙁 Maybe next season when/if we have more members.
Technically I wasn’t supposed to build the police station until Sadie hit level 3 but, of course, I forgot to check my own rules and built one anyways. ;P Sadie still owns the fire station and will not sell it until another sim fills the firefighter career.
I’m toying with the idea to alter my “No Pet Jobs” rule. Cinders might make a good Security Dog!
