Welcome back, lovely simmers, to HDYGG 2.0, where we are lawn-living once more in an attempt to play through our last several generations of Sprout family goodness!
This sweet Little Mistress is not the green-skinned Heiress we’d been hoping for, but her parents couldn’t be prouder…
As a family-oriented sim, Bear is particularly taken with his cub’s gassy smiles.
His first autonomous action, after the birth of his daughter, was to give Miss Petal a big hug.
Very well, Miss Sprout, but as you can’t afford the cost of a wedding event, you shall have to content yourself with a simple lawn ceremony.
Miss Sprout proposes to Bear that evening after he gets home from work, and with the sun setting in the background, it proves to be a surprisingly romantic moment for them.
Plumbob only knows what goes on in that tent.
He’s generally friendly and likes to give Miss Sprout a lot of hugs, as well as cleaning up her dishes for her.
What is he up to I wonder?
Bear comes home with a promotion to Freelance Article Writer, and after the Little Mistress goes down for her nap, he and Miss Sprout finally tie the knot with yet another romantic sunset in the backdrop.
Little Mistress Gardenia slept through the entire thing…as well as the, erm, fairly raucous “celebration” afterward.
And speaking of raucousness…
Our pink firstborn seems delighted with her new Nursery Garden, and we are pleased to announce that it works perfectly! No one was prematurely awoken from their beauty sleep by the wailing of a hungry nooboo.
The careful observer will note, also, that we now have a log loveseat! *Squee*
Little Miss Gardenia used the trait generator (henceforth to be known as the traiterator), and came out with Loves the Outdoors, just like her mother!
It’s a damn shame she’s not green, our Little Miss is shaping up to make a fine Sprout Heiress.
Little Miss Gardenia, delighted with the new toy, can’t wait to show Poppa Bear her very first drawing.
I love the creative macaroni detail on the rainbow.
Noticing that Little Miss Gardenia seemed to be playing with her Purple Protector action figure in a manner that one would actually play with an action figure, we stalked her during playtime with her Pretty Prancing Palomino Pony toy to see if she would play with it like one would play with a pony toy.
Our results were inconclusive; our young lady kept poking herself in the eye with the pony every few seconds.
No matter, so long as the creativity bar climbs she’s welcome to do as she pleases with her things.
Bear enjoys “Try for Baby” more than just plain “Woohoo”…I can tell because when he’s trying to make a baby he growls ferociously and Mrs. Sprout makes surprised exclamations.
A fine send off for the old 2 person tent, either way!
Sometimes, if Bear is home, he will help out by running around to do the harvesting for her.
He starts off with a bunch of jokes to set the mood, then dives in for some low level flirting to test the waters.
Mrs. Sprout is amused by the jokes and flattered by the flirting, but it has yet to go farther than that.
Well done toity. That is not what Superior Flush means. You’re Superior Flushing wrong.
Megamind: “Olo tiny female, is your mother at home?”
Gardenia: “Both my parents are home, now hold still while I bombard you with safe social interactions.”
Megamind: “Oh…yes…of course! Proceed.”
Bear: *has all kinds of feels*
Well done young lady! And 9 days to spare until teenhood too.
She is utterly sweet, and helpful, and friendly at all times, just like her Poppa Bear.
Ugh, pins and needles; cross your fingers and toes!
Well done Mrs. Sprout!
The much anticipated birth of a possible Heiress has finally come with the arrival of Little Mistress Astoria Sprout.
And her very good natured elder sister isn’t at all sad by the birth of another sibling, because she’s an angel.
Little Mistress Astoria couldn’t have asked for a better big sister than the one she’s got.
Though, Little Miss Gardenia is a tough act to follow; our tiny maybe-Heiress will have to work hard to live up to the standard of achievement that has been set for the young ladies in this garden.
The “Waterfall Shower” promises to deliver snazzier, more prestigious showering experiences.
He’s ceased calling and stopping by all the time; I think he’s a bit afraid of having to sit and talk about little girl things for hours on end.
If left to her own devices she will, without fail, do one of the following 3 things:
– Create pictures for her Poppa Bear’s Man-Cave-Hut walls.
She’s also pretty keen on cleaning up dirty granola bowls. Normally we might find her a bit dull, but she’s just so damn sweet and cheerful all the time, you can’t help but love her.
As you can see, we’re making more and more progress on the state of the Legacy Garden; it’s become quite the comfortable homestead.
I like it. Very Sprouty.
Our Maybe-Heiress took a ride on the traiterator and got her Poppa Bear’s Bookworm trait…less appropriate than her sister’s “Loves the Outdoors”, I’ll grant you, but not disappointing at all.
Can I make a confession? I’m secretly a bit terrified of cowplants. Shh! Don’t tell anyone. I don’t want to lose my sim-street cred.
So then we needed another tent…which meant we had to move the sink…which led to the building of a kitchen lean-to.
It escalated very quickly.
Ryker Ralston and Monique Ashby are her first marks.
Megamind: “Olo…additional tiny female.”
Astoria: “Gosh, hi Mister Megamind! It’s so nice to meet more new people! I’ve already met two other new people today, they were fishing but then they had to leave, but now you’re here so you can be my friend!”
Megamind: “How fortuitous…tell me, are your parents planning on doing any more procreating that I should be aware of?”
Not to place an undue burden on her poor blue alien friend, Mrs. Sprout invited nearly her entire social panel of acquaintances over for her excessively social younger daughter to leech for aspiration fodder.
Astoria: “Hello new friends! Wow! Why are you all men? That’s so weird!”
Well done Bear! I’m sure it will be a tremendous success.
Astoria: “Hurry up Gardenia! My new school friends are waiting for me!”
Moo: *toothy cowplant grin*
Mrs. Sprout promptly finished off her 10th gardening skill point and became a Freelance Botanist, which basically means she is now fireproof.
Olivia Spencer-Kim-Lewis is all too happy to spend the afternoon entertaining our green Maybe-Heiress, and by the time evening falls they are fast friends.
Little Miss Astoria even gets to have her very first microwave meal, and vows to return so she can watch more of this fascinating “television” object.
Gardenia: *is impressed*
The Sprout sisters are as thick as thieves and utterly adorable together.
She’s also decided that she prefers to wear her swimsuit above all other outfits.
She invites her new friend Olivia over to play, and Hugo Pancakes as well.
Hugo is the neat, chubby son of Bob and Eliza Pancakes that we spawned and randomized specifically to add to the child-friend pool of the neighbourhoods.
Young Miss Landgraab here is a rambunctious music lover, and I like to imagine she drives her snooty mother a bit nuts with her tomboyishness.
Bear: “Well done, cub.”
Astoria: “And people say social butterfly is hard, pfft.”
Also, the game mocks you for trying to mop grass…no matter, a neat sim can still manage it.
Gardenia: “Of course we will! I’ll help you raise your very own Heiress one day, and we’ll tend Mama’s garden, and keep Moo from eating our neighbours, and grow old together!”
There’s a pretty good chance!
Enjoy the not so cliffhangery cliffhanger, for it is now time to say toodles, and join us next time in the Legacy Garden where we get to see our lovely young Sprout ladies grow up a bit more, and meet that awkwardly foreshadowed wrench!
