Alien Interlude One

Bruce and the boys move into a new house across the street.  Everyone heads to bed for a quick nap (and to claim their beds).  The boys glance at each other and they are off.

Who is going to get there first? Arnold pulled into the lead as they turned the corner into the hallway, but he had the furthest bed from the door, so it ended up being a tie.

Bruce invites Calypso over (he may have forgotten his relationship with Dejah, but he remembers Calypso is his daughter).

Fussy and clingy means they are generally sad and angry, all of the time.  Unless they are being gross, and then they are playful.

“What’s wrong?”




“Don’t touch me!”

“That hurt!!!”

“Don’t touch me!!”

“You are mean!”  as they both cry from the injustice of it all.

After the drama subsides, the boys wait for Bruce to make dinner.

Moving right along, Bruce works on his comedy skill.

Bruce is busy giving Arthur a bath, so Arnold goes out to talk to the stranger on the front porch.

He even convinces the stranger to change his diaper.  I am pretty sure that stranger is a vampire.

“He has MY tablet”

“Now he is in MY bed”

“I don’t want silly gummy bear pancakes!  They will make me playful and I want to be sad or angry only”


Parents don’t get to be sick, especially single parents.

The boys do everything together.  Even though they argue and fight about everything.

And we have children!  Arthur goes first in the hallway.

With both boys growing up, Bruce invites Calypso over again.  Apparently the boys could not talk with Calypso until they became children.  The game recognizes them as siblings, but I guess since they didn’t live in the same house, they couldn’t do anything but “Call Over” and “Invite to Dance”.  Bruce could teach her flashcards though.

Back to farting and belching.

Bruce walks in and just ignores the grossness.  The boys are working on the bad manners trait.  Obviously.

With Bruce at work, the boys work on their language skills.

Followed up with some messes.  They definitely need supervision.

Oh yeah.  Bruce destroyed the doll house while the boys were at school.  Arnold is devastated.

Calypso is back.

For a change, the boys go over to Calypso’s house and they enjoy a dance party.

Bruce’s meanness from hating children comes to the front.

Arnold tests out his new language skills on Dejah.

Bruce catches the show and puts Arnold into timeout.

Followed by Arthur, because the boys have to do everything together.

Quiet playtime at 3am as Arnold enters a clingy phase.

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
