Baby Making Fever and Revenge Tactics

If Sandy thought Kyle was a crier, then he was nothing compared to the blood-curdling cries Issac would emit.

"Issac sweetie please give Mommy a minute!" Sandy yelled from the living room. She needed to catch up on her writing skills if she ever wanted to get that promotion. That is, if she ever went back to work.

Issac was definitely a strange little baby, sometimes it seems as if he cries out of irrational fear instead of need. "What on earth would a little baby be so afraid of?" she thought to herself.

She sighed and looked down at Issac, who was perfectly fine evidently, but would not stop crying. "You're so lucky that I love you."

Meanwhile, Kyle was busy being, well., Kyle. AKA a cute, adorable toddler that loved getting into things.

"Kyle, where are you? It's time for Mommy to give you a bath! Please come here!" Sandy pleaded while looking all over for him. Kyle peeked out of his toybox, giggled, and continued to hide for another fifteen minutes.

While struggling to raise a rambunctious toddler and a constantly disturbed baby, you'd wonder how they keep their sanity. They don't. In fact, they're pretty much ill at the moment with the illness they call:

"Baby Making Fever"

"I love you Sandy," he said with a smile on his face, "And I never want to be with anyone other than you. Are we okay now? I mean, it's been awhile since we've had an argument so I'd assume we're okay, but I never know with you-"

"Yes, we're fine babe. I promise." she smiled back. "And um...I have something I want to tell you."

"So do I."

"Let's both say it at the same time, then." she offered. Brandon just chuckled at her childishness and said "Okay. Count of three, you count."

Sandy counted to three, and they expressed their desires at the same time.

"I want to have another baby."


Meanwhile, Angelina was working hard at her physique as well as her seduction tactics. Truth be told, she did want Brandon, but she was very well aware of the fact that he didn't want her. And that would change. See, this wasn't even about Brandon anymore, this was about Sandy. She wanted to show her that if Angelina wants something, Angelina gets it; no matter what dumpy old housewives have to say about it.

Angelina didn't like rules, and she had a great distaste for people who tried to shove their "rules" and "boundaries" onto her. For her, there are no rules, and there are no boundaries. She wasn't evil, per say...

...just a touch of crazy.


I labeled this as a teaser because right now, my game is acting a bit odd. It's freezing randomly and Sandy's head has disappeared from the pie menu, as well as the main screen when it loads the household. I need to fix this problem before I wind up with another disaster on my hands. I tried Custard awhile ago, and it found no conflicting CC. If anyone else has been through this and figured out a solution, please let me know. :) For some reason, I get the feeling that it doesn't like Twallan's mods...


  1. I'd try to remove Twallan's mods and see how that works, but I'm so afraid to lol. I think I'll back up my game, run CC free (other than Twallan's mods), and see if that helps any. If not, then the problem lies with the mods I think.

  2. oh, that's so sweet between Sandy and Brandon. Too bad it's only a teaser. Angelina, she really hasn't gave up yet and even declared war with Sandy.

    The same thing happened to me too. I finally removed Twallan's mod and it worked.

  3. Sigh, I think that's what I'll wind up doing, and just switching to Awesomemod.

    That moment made me pretty happy, I love to see my sims get lovey-dovey, especially if they've been fighting recently. It kind of reaffirms that they want to be together. :)

    Angie definitely hasn't given up. Sandy opened up a can of worms by going over there and voicing her agitation, she just doesn't know it yet.

  4. Great teaser! I can't believe they want another baby. Okay, I can but Sandy can forget about finding time to write for a while. Oh oh, Angie is on a mission. She must be serious if she's working out.

    Sorry to hear about your problems. I wonder if it was one particular mod of Twallan's and, if so, which one that was causing the conflicts. Did you use Dashboard as well? I find that very helpful in ferreting out that stupid doll! *kicks it*

  5. BTW, I'm switching to a new town and generation in my Tomasi blog. I'm asking people which two sims (male, female) they'd like me to include. I'd love to include a pair from all you guys.

  6. Yeah, Sandy is...and Brandon is...well, I really don't know what I think of them right now. Definitely surprising, but definitely not surprising.

    LOL, Angie and exercising just screams "serious business". She never does anything requiring physical labor if she doesn't have to.

    Hmm, good question. I had the Woohooer, the SP mod, the Master Controller, and the Register mod. I don't know which one of them is conflicting and they all work fine for him, but he doesn't play with other mods installed. The only other mods that I have are the 2x eating mod, the CAS money mod, and the buy WA items anywhere mod. I used the Dashboard, it didn't find any conflicts. Sandy's head still isn't coming up on the pie menu, she still can't change her look/clothes without CAS continuously loading, and she can't perform any activities that require changing out of her clothes. :(

    Awesome! I'll upload my (non-glitched) Sandy and Brandon sims. :)

  7. I'm playing the game right now. Issac is being a terror, as usual.

  8. Ut oh, that's no good, Cheezy... I have absolutely no idea what would be causing that. I've never had any issues with Twallan's mods (outside of one thing he fixed immediately), but... Huh. It'd really suck if you had to uninstall them.

    Anyways, back to the story!

    I can't believe they want another one. Crazy, I say... Crazy!I have no idea what possessed me to have the Kanes have three kids. And I even had a teen to help take care of the youngest one!

    Ooo, can't wait to see what Angelina is up to. What a crazy woman. ;)

  9. Are those other mods by Twallan?

    Play, have fun, upload! And thanks for the use of your sims!

  10. I don't know how I'd be able to play without them, I've gotten a little attached. I guess my game just doesn't like it, lol. Sigh, I'll have to figure out a workaround. She can't even sleep in her bed because she'd have to change out of her current clothes.

    LOL! I don't know what possessed them to want so many kids to be perfectly honest. I was okay with leaving it at one kid (which neither one of them wanted), but then Sandy wanted another, and Issac was born. Only a few hours after Issac was born, Brandon wanted another baby. And soon after Brandon rolled the wish for another baby, so did Sandy. The one positive thing that I can get from this glitch is that it's a good form of birth control, since Sandy can't woohoo.

    Let's just hope that she carries her plan through before Sandy gives birth, otherwise she's subject to a pummeling. ;)

  11. Ooooh, Cheezy... You mentioning that reminded me. Have you updated your Master Controller lately?

    There was something wrong with the mod the other day, which made Sims unable to change back to their regular clothes after pregnancy. Make sure it's up-to-date!

    That's my only idea, so far. :(

    Jeb wished for one more baby after Amelia was born (not Mere though, surprising). That one got a quick right-click. ^^ Haha. Have fuuuun in baby-ville! :D

  12. Nope, they're from Modthesims I believe, except from the "buy WA items anywhere" mod, which is from prettysims. I checked them all, and I have the updated ones.

    Family is up! I uploaded the household itself instead of individual sims, since I figured that would be a bit easier for install. :) If you'd rather have the individual sims, I can go ahead and do that.

  13. Yep, I actually downloaded the Master Controller for the first time fairly recently. I didn't have it before. I checked back there too and downloaded that update, but it didn't fix anything. :(

    Haha, good idea! I probably would have done that if I weren't so darn desperate for a girl. This is the last time though, boy or girl. I don't know if poor Brandon's paycheck can handle all of them, even though he's a division manager now. :P

  14. Oh my gosh...Sandy is actually sleeping in a bed...

    wait...did the glitch fix itself??? *confused*

  15. Yes!!! It did!!!

    Thanks for helping guys. :)

  16. Youssa welcome. :D Glad it's fixed!

    Twallan updates his mods like.. Every two days sometimes, so I personally always go by quickly once or twice a day just to check for an update. Especially with newer mods, like the new version of MC, big things tend to go wrong. ;D

    I feel ya, on wanting a girl. :) I hadn't had a baby girl in so long, I swear, if Amelia had turned out a boy... I would've been very unhappy. Hopefully yours is one too! :D

  17. Got'em! Thanks. I'll be splitting them up in my game and putting them in as singles. Heehee.

  18. Hahahaha, good idea! I'm sure that they will thoroughly enjoy the (temporarily) single life in your neighborhood. ;)

  19. Baby making fever - you know when a family has two children and then want a third is when I usually give one of them fertility treatment. After twins they usually stop wanting babies. :)

    Oh dear, Angie...I hope Brandon can resist. For his family's sake.

    I'm glad the glitch got fixed. I had to roll back to an old save in one game because I did have the MasterController mod and it made a Sim unplayable after I changed her pregnancy clothes. After the baby was born, the mom could not change clothes so no sleep, no shower, no workouts...and randomly popping around too. Twallan has fixed that bug.

  20. LOL, but then I stop wanting babies too! The last thing they need are twins, they're driving themselves up the wall with single births.

    Brandon's pretty strong, I just hope that Sandy realizes that.

    Ack! That's exactly what happened to me! Poor Sandy had to take a nap on the couch until the mod somehow miraculously fixed itself.

  21. I'm glad your game is back to normal, I can't wait to see what happens next!

    Oh, and I'm snagging the Dillards for my game. They've quickly become one of my favorite couples! :)

  22. Awesome, I can't wait to see how they'll behave in your game! :D

  23. I'm glad your game is fixed.
    Will you please put me on a notification list for both the post and the comments. My email address is in my profile. I sometimes forget to look at the blog list and get behind.

    I'm curious to see what Angelia is up to. Hope you get the girl this time. On to the next.

  24. Sure thing, you're on the blog list right now. :)

  25. Thank you.
    I wanted to tell you the blog link Selah's sim Stories hasn't been updated in a long time and probably won't be used anymore.

  26. Wow, love this story!! Just found it and read the entire thing in one sitting. I am still stuck on Sims 2- but this almost makes me look at Sims 3 in a while new way.

    Excicted to see more!!!

  27. Thank you, that means a lot to me to hear you say that! :) Updates will be coming soon, I'm just trying to work up the motivation to build a new home for them lol. Their tiny cottage isn't cutting it anymore.
