Belle has painted... something interesting... again?

Bad Apple Brooke gets some attention from daddy Liam.

Blaze demonstrates the party-fist-pump-yawn again.

I love these pictures of Brett and Brighton, you get a real feel for the types of people they'll become.

Brett looks like munch-y inquisitive, while Brighton strikes me as the SO INTO THIS MUSIC type boy. Hehe.

Benny has completed his LTW and Brielle cannot start on hers until she's a YA, so they veg out in front of the TV.

Verification picture that Brooke is still alive. She's got to be the most boring baby yet, mostly because I cannot click on her picture out of risk of seeing her stats, so I just leave her be and occasionally let the kiddos autonomously toss some love her way whenever they deem it necessary.

You cannot tell from this picture, but it took Bastian six times to get a starting portrait of Bentley that WASN'T blurry.

I've been trying so hard to get these perfect plants for Liam's new LTW, so there's a mosh pit out in the garden.

One-two-three. All the triplets have their portraits done. Bethany is like a hair's breath away from mastering the Artisan skill and it's graduation day, so I'll let the chaos continue for a little while longer.

In the meantime, the mosh pit returns inside to congregate around the TV as the writer has hopelessly given up on any semblance of control on graduation day.

The respective museums are growing.

Bentley and Bastian sneak in some last minute wish fulfillment.

Let the games begin.

LOOK at poor Blaze being all cute and shy! Oh he's too much!

This family cleans up so nicely!
So everyone rushes for the babies and they all pack up into a vehicle to march their butts downtown... except they don't because shit can never go according to plan when it comes to graduation day and somehow Brett, Brielle, Brooke and Bethany all got left behind.

Figuring this was the end, I felt bad that Beth wouldn't get to graduate so I checked the city hall and she had the option to "Graduate at City Hall."
Clicking on that suddenly put Brielle into a tizzy and Brielle grabbed onto Brooke, Bethany grabbed Brett and for the first time in the Messorem's (with only one previous time under my belt) ALL the Messorem's made it to graduation!

Also Brielle is gorgeous.

With Bastian clocking in as class Valedictorian, everyone else graduated with honors.

Benny seemed to catch the attention of... a dog?

I have... no idea.
We got one more haul in from Bethy's hunts.

Chaos resumed. I had to go to work. I've had a really rough (real life) couple of weeks. I came back on and people were slow and glitchy so I reset the whole town.

^ Glitch.
(Town reset)
No glitch.
Happy writer.
Happy life.

Bethany went back to work until she finally maxed the skill.

With that, it was time to say goodbye.

My first birds to fly the nest! I'll try to post things about where they are in life from time to time, but if that gets too confusing please let me know! It's not hard for ME to keep them straight, but for readers I know it's much harder.

Life resumed in the garden with Liam. I realized I had a problem.

I decided I would wait until next harvest (5am) to see if THAT would trigger it (spoiler alert: it didn't).
I got my first notice on how the triplets were doing:

Bastian's is literally the only one that makes sense, but you guys do you. In the meantime while waiting on the garden (that DIDN'T work) I had Liam and Adilyn teach Brielle and Briony how to drive.

I've started pushing teens to skill for points until the verdict on LTWs comes in, which means I double-timed Benny so he could max out the cooking skill.

While his twin Belle worked avidly on her painting.

She paints odd things, but occasionally she paints really gorgeous stuff. I love getting to see the variety though.

Brielle keeps trying to be sneaky and get a head start on her Athletic skill. I have to keep my eyes on her at all times.

Brylee needs logic for her medical career so I toss her on that in her free time.

This was supposed to be a cute shot of Brielle and Briony but now all I'm seeing is the underside of Briony skirt. Noice, sims. Noice.

Still. Nothing.
(frustrated noises increase)

Another LTW bites the dust over here as Adilyn fishes up her Photography/Painting (Visionary) LTW.

Remember what I said about Belle's paintings? Sometimes gorgeous, sometimes creepy.

Still. NOTHING. Urgh!
So Blaze was thiiiiiiis close to his promotion to level 9, and he had the green SUPER smilie in all categories for work so I called his boss over to have him ask for a promotion.

She decided to bring her son.

AND be a stupid lady and not grant him a promotion.


It's a full moon today, so you all know what that means!
(chimes ring throughout the house)
Oh the sweet lullaby.

You all have seen the house I've built. There's toys. There's playgrounds for MILES. There's water toys and swingsets and see-saws and gnub and horseshoes and slides and treehouses and spring riders and sand pits...
and Bianca would rather...
(throws hands up in despair).

Beona on the other hand would rather play with the couch.
I mean.
At least it's better than raking leaves.

Brielle and Briony take on some logic together until Briony can call for her next chess opponent (she called earlier and he said call back in 5 hours).

Looks like Bastian got a puppy.

Brylee is maxing photography while she's stuck around waiting for her brother to max his career (shakes fist at Blaze's boss once more).

*adds to the list of weird paintings Belle has done*

Here's a great example - water toys, gnub, telescope, treehouse, playhouse, spring-riders, slide, see-saw...
but noooo must rake the leaves!

Time to send off the kiddos to their corners to bring forth the beasts!

Briony and Benny got caught having an autonomous conversation. I love when the kids interact on their own.
Also A+ to Benny who was out playing with the waterslides instead of raking leaves.
OK SO at this point it's been 2 days of having 11+ plants in the garden qualifying for The Perfect Garden, so I swap Liam over to the Surrounded by Family LTW and have it auto-complete to count for the Garden LTW.

Out of curiosity I swapped Adilyn's LTW to be the Perfect Garden and...

INSTA-COMPLETE! *shakes fist in anger*

Despite it all, these two are still beyond adorable.

Liam goes to do his thing in the bathroom.
👂 waggle.
Yes I know none of you know what that means. That's half the fun. XD

I decide to get some final hauls in on the garden before it goes dormant.
OH by the way, I picked Super Popular as Liam's next LTW because I'm insane and need to be put down.
I mean, yay?

*grumbles about missed promotion*
He was BFFS with his boss and all his coworkers. He had GREEN in everything. Maxed Cooking. Great mood. He had 85% of the bar full WHY WAS HE REJECTED IT?! WHY?!
(sighs) tomorrow...

Blaze: ME ANGRY.

Even though they might not count - I'm still hauling in for the LTWs. I just want these kids to be as fulfilled as possible when they leave the house.

I pan back over and pornstache here decided to creep on Briony for a little longer after their chess match. Creeped I had her go inside.

Cue daddy Liam.

Unfortunately, he needs friends in this town for this LTW, not enemies so... Friendship potion it will be. However, Liam was not satisfied with this.



Dominance asserted, Liam watches Porstache run as far as humanly possible from the Messorem house.

Mosh pit in the gardennnn!  Last minute gardening before the zombies come to eat everything.

Wait wut?

How did you get in there? How did you level up your... you know I don't wanna know. A+ Good on you Brighton, but now you'll never get to sleep tonight. *shakes fist*

Next victim - er I mean opponent.

Awww.... they're so cute.

And so hard to see...
OH LOOK, Brooke is aging up! FINALLY something interesting for her.

We have our first bad apple.
Hehe, get it? I put her in an apple onesie...
Ok I'll see myself out.


  1. Oooh I like the underground museum! That's a great visual for how far along you are.

    Lol, Bianca's obsession with raking leaves. Maybe she wants to rake and then play in the leaves? Still, there's much more fun stuff around.

    Ha, I like Brooke's outfit. :D Can't wait to see more kids.

  2. This update was absolutely wonderful!
    Belle's paintings are always interesting and never cease to stop amazing me.
    The triplets leaving made me sad along with the fact that Blaze's boss wouldn't give him a promotion.
    *Shakes fist*
    Also, what the hell was going on with those Lifetime Wish problems?
    Ah, I love Liam the dad. He's absolutely amazing.
    The apple onesie made me laugh.

  3. Blogger ate my comment again...
    Cris had similar trouble with the Perfect Garden LTW; I just left it until it eventually completed itself, but it did take a few days. So annoying. And you're reminded me to switch Kyra over while the plants are still alive!

    Makes me lol that the first kids out of the house aren't the oldest. But at least you have some house room now.
