Juliette l'enfant (Deux)


Ah, the struggles of "which interaction is 'work carefully'?"




She finishes it up and has enough to boost her responsibility into the trait range... barely. Lol!


The freaking monster returns and guess what?


Juliette has somehow made friends with it! JFC!
SOUS LE LIT was one of the first phrases I learned in French. Sur le canape et sous le lit. On the couch, under the bed.
Despite this... I have to yank in Lucie to do some monster hunting.


I'm fed up with these monsters yo.
I think I need a new strategy.


FYI this works. Didn't have a single monster after this.
Probably because the kids can't sleep with all that freaking light.
C'est la vie.


(squints again)
"I got a present that I don't like."
I tell her to be empathetic, why because that trait is decently hard to get.
I'd say Conflict Resolution > Emotional Control > Empathy > Manners > Responsibility (hierarchy of how hard it is to achieve the positive trait for with Conflict resolution being the hardest).
This is usually the pattern I follow for when I'm being offered choices. Always pick the ones favoring Conflict Resolution over all else, then work up the hierarchy. I almost never pick ones for manners or responsibility because those are just so easy to get doing basic things like complimenting someone, meeting new people, and doing homework.


Juliette's making progress on her art aspiration.


Wolfgang is making progress in his career. Somehow. I really don't prioritize anyone but Juliette in this house...



When she finishes up I do try to have Thomas fall behind her, since his aspiration is the art one too.



Still attempting those friendships for Tristan. This was before I fully switched to autopilot for the boys.


All that's left for her now is to complete her 5 hours on an instrument!



Do you smell that? It's holiday time!
Fantastic.



And wah-la! One down!



Time to appease all the gnomes! I think Lucie already did one, then comes Juliette!



Tristan goes next, and Juliette starts hammering down that social skill.




They also BFF each other since they both needed that requirement fulfilled.


This began pulling her through the ranks of the aspiration at a nice and quick speed!
And then... came my downfall.


Wolfgang.


He botched this one, and I was digging through my French to determine what each button was and I hit the wrong one.


F. 
M.
L.
I sell them all in a haste and don't look back.


I also end the holiday early to be safe.



Time to spruce up a club for proper friendship making!



HEY BROS
WANNA COME JOIN MY CLUB OUTSIDE?
K. COME OVER AS SOON AS YOU'RE DONE ACROSS THE ROOM.








Have this little montage of progress.


Bien. Va shier, trou de cul!
Could you not die faster?



Hey look Wolfgang and Lucie are still alive and winning at this challenge... despite me mostly ignoring them.



Oh hi yes this is probably the most expensive painting I've seen Lucie do. $3,000+ is a lot!


Lucie the expert sucks the soul out of her husband too. Can't be sad if he has no soul, ya know.


Oh yes THAT'S why I took that picture! Lucie completed her aspiration here with that last painting. Neat!


Lucie gives Wolfgang a little more support before he heads off to work and she returns to painting.




Let's go make some friends everyone! Also Juliette is annoying the shit out of me with her B grade that ain't QUITE YET AN A.





Childhood friends in hand, off Juliette goes to befriend the adults.



Who better than Lilith and Caleb?






Crushed it.
Poor kid stayed up super late, but she did it! Two down, two to go!


Lol what? Did you think Caleb would show up anywhere without Lettie? Hahahahahano.



Lucie crunched out another aspiration to start piling in the points. We're going to need a lot of sleep replacements for our sweet Juliette hitting l'ado phase.


Me: (squinting) dahoogawhatnow?


OH the poor boy is SICKLY!
MEDICINE FOR THE BOY! QUICK!



Where tf is my medication that instantly cures me of all ailments? I could've used that a week ago. And a month ago.
I could always use that, honestly.


Juliette rests up before heading back in to skill.


Wolfgang repairs one of the many stereos.


and Thomas is mopping up a puddle outside... Go Thomas, go!
All of the kids got hit with phases at the same time.



Tristan and Thomas became picky eaters and Juliette...?




Fuck.
You.
Game.
I HATE this one!
It was a lot cuter when it was Martha, my spare, and not my main focus taking a mood hit on a challenge about skill gain on a time crunch.
FuckyoufuckyoufuckyouFUCKYOU.




Juliette: I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I'M NOT GETTING THE HIGH SCORE AT THIS GAME.
Me: OH GEE, COULD IT POSSIBLY BE... THOSE GODDAMN BEAR HANDS YOU'RE TRYING TO WEAR?!
(loud groaning)
Oh, and to end this update, Lucie's job decided to put her in a hard position.


I wanted her to keep her job, and she had maxed her positive notoriety, so nah.
One more chapter to go and I'll be all caught up!
