ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 9 & 10

** there is a adult content in this post so if you are under 16 please make sure it is okay to be reading this **

 

 

            The Sims world has just expanded. We now have a big city called Bridgeport, with boutiques, clubs, stores, bars, and all kinds of new things to explore. Our stores in Twinbrook received a big shipment of new clothes and our stylists went there to take a class on some new styles. Once I heard this I rushed out to get a makeover. I know my outfit is a bit risqué for a mom, but it is perfect for a woman trying to catch the eyes of men.

 

            Sunshine (the one in red) is my eco-friendly girl. She has been trying to convince her siblings that the smart thing to do for our Sim World is to go green. She gets pretty angry when any of them question her. I have a feeling she is one day going to change the Sim World. I can’t wait to see how she flourishes. 

 

            They boys continue to get closer. They are not only brothers, but best friends. I know it will be soon that they will have to age to Young Adults and leave my home. Tears begin to well in my eyes as I think of this and then I remember my phone call with Violet Newbie and I suck them back and put on a brave face as my boys filled me in on all of their plans for when they move out.

 

 

            Every chance I get I read up on the latest recipes, being a natural cook this is something I sure enjoy doing.

 

            Before I knew it, it was time to age the twins into Tot’s. 

            Here is little Jury Starr:

                With her dad’s blue skin and grey hair she is sure to catch people interest. 

 

            Awe look at little Miss. Journey Starr. She got her dad’s hair as well, but my eyes and a very light complexion, but I think she is going to have her daddy’s ears.

            With bands forming in Bridgeport and becoming very popular Twinbrook couldn’t be left behind so they got a shipment of new musical instruments for Sims to by and learn on. I went out and got one of each: Drums, Cello, Keyboard, piano, and now we have three guitars. I decided to try my hand at the drums and found out that I wasn’t too bad. My two baby girls like it anyway. Bennett heard me playing and came to check it out and decided to tickle the ivories. I think we are a musically talented family. There is nothing better than playing some music and having your kids join you.  

 

            Little Jury was trying to sing, but she doesn’t know how to talk yet so big brother Bennett took some time out to teach his sister to talk. While he did that I help Journey to learn to walk. My goodness these girls are picking up on their skills quickly.

 

            Greyson, what adventure are you on? You look scared out of your mind. 

 

            Hannah came for a visit. I was so happy to see her. I know she and her sister have only been out of the house for a short time, but to me it feels like forever. We got caught up and she told me that Harmony has started to date a boy named Neil Cha Cha.  What a strange name, but as long as my children are happy I am happy.

 

            While she was there I showed her our new musical instruments. I tested out the cello, but I’m not as good on that as I am the drums. Hannah had a brilliant idea. She suggested that I sell one of my cars and turn part of the garage into a practice area for the instruments.

 

            Here is what we came up with. We even added a dance floor.

 

            I went to check the mail soon after Hannah left and I got the shock of my life. I received a package with no return address on it. When I opened it up I nearly fainted dead away, what was inside was something I had never expected to see. It was a framed photo of Emmett Storm, the oldest Storm child that was with Harmony when she disappeared.

 

  The picture was current and there was a letter written by Malakai Rose, Emmett’s father.

Dear Ashby,

I know you and your family is looking for Harmony and her kids so I wanted to let you know what I have found out. It isn’t much, but it at least something and for me what I know has a happy ending. 

Three weeks ago I found Emmett. As you know Vampire Sim are uncommon, well that was the case until Bridgeport was built, and so I have had feelers out for a 16 + year old Vampire Sim all over the world and finally I got a call from an church, I know go figure, in France telling me that a young man staggered in needing shelter and food. He had no memory of who he was or where he had been. I flew there immediately and sure enough it is my boy. He doesn’t know what happened to him or his siblings or his mom, which is odd because he is a vampire. 

Ashby for someone to have the power to wipe a Vampires mind clean they need to have very dangerous connections. I want to warn you to be careful in your search for Harmony. I don’t know what she has gotten herself into but I am convinced that it is bad. 

Because of the seriousness of the matter I have decided that Emmett and I will not be returning to Twinbrook. We are going to return to my homeland of Scotland. I have notified Emmett’s siblings and anyone is welcome to come and see him but we are not returning. I need to protect my son now and this is the best way I know how. 

Good luck with your search for Harmony and I too will keep my searches open and if I hear anything I will let you know.

Malakai

            After reading this letter I was both thrilled and scared out of my mind. What had Harmony gotten herself into? What kind of person could succeed in erasing a vampires mind? On the other hand I was so glad that Emmett was found, alive and back with this dad. 

            I put the letter in a safe place and hung Emmett’s picture on the wall.

 

            Even though the news of Emmett being alive was never far from my heart and head it didn’t take long for the routine of motherhood to settle back in. It was feedings, changing’s, hugs and kisses, snuggles and crying and teaching my children their skills and the older ones to be good people.

 

            Greyson became very interested in athletics and working out. 

 

            I went to the library and I met my first celebrity. Wow look at Cooper Cupid. I remember him when he was a little pudgy and on one by Plum Tree appreciated him. Since he went to Bridgeport to film a commercial he gets recognized all over town. We had a nice chat and I was eager to get to know him a little bit better.

 

 

            Where does the time go? Before I knew it my two precious tot’s had learned their skills and it was time to age them into children.

            Here is little Jury Starr.

            Journey really did get a lot of her dad’s features and his ears. 

            The girls were very different in looks so they decided that they wanted to dress alike. I designed this little ducky dress for them and they love it. (if you like the dress you can find it on the exchange in my studio Xur28)

            A few weeks ago I got a call from my great friend Violet Newbie. She wanted to let me know that she was at the end of a pregnancy and that she was continuing the 100 baby challenge. I was thrilled. She went on to explain to me that she was having problems with Mollie and Andy and that she had relocated to Sunset Valley. I told her that once she had her new babe then she and I were going to head to Bridgeport to see what the buzz was about. We both needed some grownup time and she needed a break from the courts and Andy and just needed to get away. 

            When she was comfortable enough to leave her new little one with a nanny I too got one and we met in Bridgeport.

           

 

            We met up at the train station and there was a pretty woman playing the guitar for money. We both flittered a dollar into her guitar case and sat down to watch her for a little bit. We were both gitty and feeling like Teens again as we sat there thinking that the city was ours to do whatever we wanted. 

If you like Ashby’s shirt you can find it on the exchange in my studio Xur28.

 

            We finally left the train station and took at cab to the little apartment I rented for our long weekend. There we found two guitars and decided that a little jam session was in order. Vi was really getting into it as I was concentrating on the cords and being careful. 

 

            After our awesome jam session we hungry so we decided to see what Bridgeport had to offer in the food department. We wandered around and find this cute little dive bar and decided this was our place. 

            It wasn’t very busy and that was okay. We snuggled up to the bar and I ordered nachos while Vi ordered wings. The food wasn’t terrible but it certainly wasn’t a four star restaurant. 

 

 

            After we ate we thought it would be fun to get on stage and try our hand at entertaining he one man and the bartender in the bar. Vi took on the drums while I took on the keyboard. The two onlookers actually liked us. 

            Now way is it that Vi looks like she is having way more fun than me? Aren’t I the adventurous sims?

 

            Shuffleboard anyone? Remind me never to play Violet Newbie for money again!

 

 

            Before the night was over we strolled around Bridgeport taking in the sights and finally to end our night we took a guided tour of Plumbob Pictures Backlot.

            After the backlot tour we went back to our apartment for a nice needed sleep. We both slept late the next morning which is something we mommies rarely get to do.

            The next night we decided to go to a club instead of a bar. It was a hip happening place and we went a bit crazy, but in a fun and safe way.

 

 





            When we got there Vi ordered a drink called Neon Breeze that cost her $14.00. Yikes what are we thinking? We have kids to raise!! I ordered a drink called Alien Brain and mine was $16.00. Despite the cost of the drinks they were very yummy. We sat down and had some pizza and once the music and drinks hit us we ready to have some fun.

            We danced the night away most of it on top of the tables. When we got back to the apartment we were both exhausted.

  

            The next night we decided to go to one of the hot spots. The building was awesome, but when we got up to the floor the bouncer wouldn’t let us in. We had to bribe our way in. How awful??!! After Vi gave the greedy bouncer her money she was told that she would have let her in for free, but that that the mouthy red head (me) had to pay. I was stunned. People in Twinbrook weren’t this rude.

            Once we got into the club we found that it was empty! How it is that a hot spot is empty? However, Vi and I don’t need a lot of people to have a great time. We took advantage of the emptiness and enjoyed what the club had to offer.

 

            We took advantage of the bubble machine and had a grand ole time. Vi’s chose the Cotton Candy flavored bubbles and I chose Mint flavor.

 

            The next morning came quickly and we decided to form a band. We called ourselves 100 Babies. Our first gig was on the street corner. We didn’t make much money but we had a blast. Now Bridgeport has 100 Babies in their band selection so we will see if we get a call up for a real gig.

 
 

            The next night I got a phone call from Stella telling me all about her new friend and how she missed me. I hung up and a wave of longing swept through me. I wanted to go back to my kids. Vi too was feeling the same thing. We decided to end our long weekend on night early. We hugged and made a mad dash for the train station.

            My kids were thrilled to see me and I them. It was good to be home, but in the back of my mind I was already thinking of the next Vi and Ashby weekend.

 

 

            Soon after I got home from my trip it was time to age the triplets into Teens:

            Simi Starr:       http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3346528

                She got her dad’s rock-N-roll nose and my funky hair. What a combination for such a fun gal.

 

 

            Stella Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3346527

                She too got her dad’s nose, but she didn’t want anything to do with the rock-N-roll image. She went with a more fashionable look.

 

 

            Sunshine Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3346525

                Look at my little eco-friendly girl now. She has taken on the whole rock-N-roll image and she is proud that her dad is a rock star. **if you like her skirt you can find it in my studio on the exchange Xur28.**

 

 

            I really needed to get along on my challenge, but there wasn’t any more room in the household with the two boys, the triplets and the twins so it was time for the boys to become Young Adults and move out on their own.

            Greyson Starr: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3351232

                Before they left Greyson got a job in the science field and I was so very proud. Bennett wants to explore the arts and writing and I wished him success. As they left I handed them each a note and told them that when they are feeling down, stressed, or like they can’t handle things to read this note and mom is always behind them and is there.

Here is what their note said:

I’ll Sand by You

By the Pretenders:

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don’t be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
‘Cause I’ve seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you
You don’t know what to do
Nothin’ you confess, could make me love you less

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So, if you’re mad, get mad
Don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now

Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I’m a lot like you

When you’re standing at the crossroads
And don’t know which path to choose
Let me come along
‘Cause even if you’re wrong

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you

And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You’re feelin’ all alone
You won’t be on your own

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Yeah

Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you

I’ll stand by you
No, no, no, no, no
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you

            I kissed them both goodbye and they walked out of the Starr house on their way to greatness.

 

            I wanted to take a moment to thank TyLinn for this wonderful Cutesy Canopy Crib. It really makes the nursery even cuter. Thank you ever so much TyLinn for the great gift.

            I also wanted to say thank you to my friend Vi Newbie she gifted me a dress during the last blog post and I forgot to thank her — I am so sorry for that — I am not sure how to take pictures of the gifts and I am sorry for that too.

 

            This is Rich Whelohff. I have to explain that I vaguely remember this picture being taken. Rich is the next daddy in my challenge, but he wasn’t planned. Actually Froggie Lilpad and I had already made arrangements that once I had room in the house he was to be the next daddy, but sometimes life throws you a curve ball.

            Before you all get concerned Rich didn’t force me to do this, well not exactly. Okay let me explain.

            Soon after my girls turned into teen’s Simi and Stella started to complain about these weird feeling they got. It was like they were being hunted or something. I have never heard of anyone in Twinbrook feeling like this so I started to do some research and I found out that since Bridgeport was built the Vampire population was moving into Riverview, Sunset Valley, BB and Twinbrook. The more research I did the more uneasy I felt for my kids. These kinds of vampires weren’t like Emmett and his father, they were more sinister. 

            Then I discovered that our neighbors the Whelohff’s were vampires. I marched myself over there to ask them, nicely, to stop stalking my girls. I was greeted by Rich and he seemed nice enough. He invited me in and explained that he and his wife were new vampires and was just learning how to use their abilities as well as to be as much a part of the community as they could. 

            I don’t remember much after that and when I learned I was pregnant I was shocked, concerned and bewildered. I called up Rich and he explained that he and his wife had been trying to have a child, but it wasn’t happening and since he knew I was doing the challenge he didn’t think there was any harm in compelling me to sleep with him. 

            The vampire used his abilities to have a child with me! Gosh I would have said yes if he would have only asked, but I guess vampires will be vampires and baby number 9 is on the way.

 

            When I found out that Harmony got promoted to Resident at the hospital I invited her over for an overnight catch up session.

 

            We had a nice lunch together and I got all caught up on her new guy and her new job. I told her all about my trip to Bridgeport and it was just wonderful to spend time with my eldest child.

 
 

            I announced that I was pregnant with baby 9 and she was very excited for me. With her promotion she was now able to tell the gender of babies. She offered, I accepted and I found out I was going to have a little boy. This put me on cloud nine.

            Don’t get me wrong I love my seven girls, but since my two boys moved out there were only girls in the household and a boys antics is what the house needed.

 

            The day I went into labor I was practicing the drums in the garage. I had decided to have my first home birth but the pain came quickly and intensely that I ended up giving birth in the garage!

            After what seemed like forever I have my very first set of Multi-Gender Twins. Twinbrook and readers please welcome Vampire babies:

 

            Ash Star

 

            And Elvira Star.

 

Thank you beloved reader for once again being here with Me (Jen the writer) and Ashby on our journey. Neither of us would continue with this challenge if it weren’t for you. 

I would also like to thank Della Wriner for having Ashby in her wedding and for all the 100 baby challenge mothers: Violet Newbie, Della Wriner, Cadence Sierra, Elizabeth Reting, Christy Quinn, Sky Greene, Maci Wriner, Alyssa LaMont, Vanessa Wood, Nicki Cranford, Aliana Diamond, Leah Sierra, and Kendel Roberts for having such a great group and support system.

Please your feedback is encouraged and welcomed.
