ASHBY STARR’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE
BABY 18, 19 AND 20
As with every new baby there is a new look for me. This time I decided to be a little conservative. I think, for once, I look like a mom.
***UPDATE*** The children who have now left my home are all doing well. Some of them are advancing in their jobs, some of them are trying to discover themselves and others are traveling. However, only three of them are in a relationship. My eldest Harmony is dating a guy named Neil Chacha. Elvira and Lars Newbie are doing well together and I am sure there are wedding bells in their future and I found out that my eldest adopted Son, Bennett Starr, is dating a gentleman by the name of Godrick Kane. I wish the two of them luck.
It was a Tuesday when the Grinch Triplets aged into Young Adults and moved out of the house. I decided they could skip school that day and we had a party. It was the first time since my mom’s funeral that I really got to spend some time with my dad. Little did I know it would be the last time I saw him too. A few weeks later he passed in his sleep. Aunt Magic said it was because he couldn’t live without my mom, and you know what I believe that.
The party was great, but in a way I was sad to have it. It meant another three of my children leaving and since the day was so busy we forgot to take our good-bye pictures. So my handsome Grinch boys left my home without a good-bye.
Handsome, Handsome Kole, he kept his curly hair and he has very handsome features.

Here is my little insane boy Kenyon. I sure hope the girls can get past that trait and see how wonderful he is. He will have beautiful babies with some girl if he chooses to.

And last, but not least here is Kemper. I think he got more of my facial features then the Grinch’s.

I miss my Grinch Triplets, but I wish them well in life and I know they will do wonderful things.
A couple of days later while Newbie and Quinn were at school it was time to age up Brogan’s girls so I could get them started with their skills.
Here is Bren; she is such a cutie with her dad’s cool skin tone, her grandma Mirid’s eye color and my hair color, but with a hint of pink from her dad.

Here is Bren’s twin Heavenly. She is a stunning child with big grey eyes, and pink hair like her dad. She too inherited her father’s skin tone and I believe she is going to be my dreamer. I often find her staring at nothing… just space…just dreaming.

That weekend we had another party and two more of my children aged up. This time it was Newbie and Quinn’s turn. Both had been pestering me for weeks to age up, yes even before the Grinch Triplet’s were YA’s, and finally I relented know that I would need help with teaching Bren and Heavenly.
Newbie’s ambition in life is to become a star. I just don’t understand it since he is a genius, but he wasn’t to be rich and famous. Upon his age up he decided to go with a more suave look. I think he pulls it off. What do you think?

Too handsome for words, here is Quinn. His skin tone is lighter than his brother’s, but they look very similar. They both got my eyes and cheek bones, but Quinn’s hair is a brownish/yellow while Newbie’s is red with white highlights.

We got busy teaching the girls their skills. Both Newbie and Quinn are so very helpful. They are so doting on their baby sisters, but as much as I love the help I wish they would get out and make new friends and just do teenager things.
Our family is pretty tight knit right now and I am very happy with that. I love reading to the girls. They are like little sponges and take in everything.
Bren and Heavenly are very close. From playing together to just sitting and being with one another the two of them were never very far away from each other.
I found myself getting distracted from the challenge and I was enjoying spending time with my kids and practicing my guitar where ever I could.
It wasn’t until I heard one of those nasty rumors about me having children out of wedlock that I decided that I better get back on track with my challenge. The sooner it was over the sooner I could get the rumors to stop for good. When the rumors start I always got to court for slander and I have never lost one of my cases, but it will be nice to not have to do that every couple of months.
If you recall my best friend Violet Newbie created my new beautiful house for me and I loved how she had the nursery, but one day when I was out shopping I saw a new nursery set that I just had to have for my children so I ordered it. Once I got word that my order was in I set forth redecorating it. It isn’t a Violet Newbie original but I think it turned out okay. My girls seemed to like it.
The girls learned their skills quickly and soon it was time for them to age up and for me to continue my challenge. I watched my little girls play the hours before I aged them up and they never ceased to take my breath away. I was both thrilled and in agony about ageing them up. Thrilled to see what they would look like and what they would do and in agony that time flew for children in the 100 baby challenge.
I sure hope that all of my children understand why I do this challenge and I hope none of them end up resenting me for taking away so much of their precious time.
First to age up was Bren. As you can see her favorite color is green…she is my tomboy of the twins and she loves being outside and playing catch with her big brothers, well I should say brother since Quinn hates going outside.

Heavenly lives up her name. She is very angelic looking with her cool green skin, her silky pink hair and her steel grey eyes. She may have gotten my eye coloring but I think she picked up more of the Newbie features. Her favorite color is blue, but she is defiantly the girly girl of the twins. She found this dress at the EA store and she reminded her of those old Victorian stories and she begged me to let her have it. Of course I gave in as I always do when my kids show signs of really wanting something.

The next day I sent the kids off to school and since it was the first time in a while that I had my day to myself I decided to go for a job. I went upstairs and changed but when I walked outside I saw this guy sitting my bench. He looked at me and gave me a sweet smile.
I took a seat next to him and smiled back. He introduced himself Victor Noosebaum. His accent was very heavy and he explained that he was from a distant land and his family was pressuring him to get serious with someone and create an heir.
I asked him why it was so important to have an heir and why his family was so pushy, but he told me in the most polite way that it didn’t really matter. What mattered was that he wasn’t ready to settle down with a woman and while he was browsing the internet one day he came across my blog and after reading it knew I was the answer to his dilemma. He went on to say that he left his little country and flew to Twinbrook right away, and that he didn’t have a lot of time but he was hoping that he could spend the day with me and hopefully I would allow him to take part in my challenge. The only thing he requested is that he could have involvement with his child and that when they are old enough they would be flown to his country and taught about this family.
How could I resist such a sweet handsome foreigner?
I went up to change and when I came back down Victor had found my dance floor. We had a great time together and when we finished dancing we went and relaxed in the hot tub where baby number 18 was conceived.
Soon after Victor left to catch a plane back to where he is from. I had a little time before my kids got home from school so I logged into the computer and googled Victor Noosebaum, and do you know what I found out? I found out he was a prince of a little country far from here. A prince!! I was going to have real live royalty children. This was very exciting to me.
Time went on pretty fast after that. As always my little family found a routine. My pregnancy was going well and everything was right in the world.
One night the family was woken up by an awful noise in the back yard. We all rushed down there as quickly as we could to find a man had drowned in our pool. When we arrived on the scene death was already there to take him.
Does he look familiar to any of you? He should. Upon an autopsy it was discovered that the young man was Steel Storm, the third missing child of Harmony Storm and Mr. Green. He was going by a different name and he and three women had just moved to Twinbrook.
This news rocked my world. How could one of Harmony’s children be dead and happened to meet that untimely death in my pool? It was crazy to think about.
His funeral was heartbreaking. The three women were there two were pregnant and one had a small child. I didn’t introduce myself, but I saw Mr. Green talking to each of them and it didn’t seem like he liked what he was being told.
A few weeks after the funeral I paid a visit to my good friend Mr. Green and the visit left my heart in turmoil. The women at the funeral had filled him in on his son’s life. They told him that Steel, or Darvon, as he was going by, was bounced around from home to home after he was found and no one wanted him due to this evilness. The three women he lived with were all his, the young child was his and the other two were pregnant with his babies. He had been trying to rob me the night he fell in the pool and drowned.
Gosh I can’t image what Harmony would do or say if she found out that her son lived such a hard life.
During my pregnancy I received many phone calls from Victor asking about my health and the health of his unborn child. He really is a sweet man.
It has seemed like only yesterday that I had met Victor and he requested to be in my challenge and I was coming home with a baby carrier. Victor and I had multiple children. Three to be exact…. Sims World and Twinbrook please welcome:

Life has a way of twisting and changing and with the discovery of another one of Harmony’s children I just feel as if I may be closing in on the truth about what happened to her.
Also with both of my parents now gone I feel that much alone. I know I have wonderful friends, like Vi, Asher, Della (both of them), Addy, Danny, Ava, CheyLee, and many many others, but doing the 100 baby challenge can be lonely because of the rules you really have to keep your heart guarded and family is a huge support for this task. I still have my kids and that helps, but I truly miss my parents.
**As always I want to thank you for reading my blog. I hope you are all still enjoying Ashby’s challenge. Please I would love to hear what you think. You can leave me a message here or look me up on Facebook under Ashby Starr Bright. ~Jen~ **
