Hello hello hello! Welcome back to the Goodman ISBI Patriarchy! Last time, our twins became young adults, giving Trent the torch. Our first dogs, Chubbs and Paco, unfortunately passed away and their puppies, Taz and Ruby, became elders. Before going through the double-tragedy of both dogs dying in front of me at the same time, I kick them out with Lisa and don’t even get a picture of her as a young adult before booting her out the door.
So I send Trent over to the house I moved her into to say hi and get a picture of her.
She’s still in her party clothes from the birthday party. I really do think she’s adorable.
Taz and Ruby are here as well, very gray and tugging at my heartstrings.
This is the cute house on a neighboring island that I put her in. I didn’t wanna move her too far away.
Trent finished the first milestone in his aspiration (becoming a young adult and owning $1,000 worth of kids stuff) so we got some points pretty quick.
The next milestone won’t happen until he’s a parent so we have time.
Now that Jason is off the leash, he does cutesy stuff with Julianna autonomously. It’s nice.
Trent’s room gets remodeled and for some reason Julianna has to stand in there while Trent is sleeping. Hello??
Later on, Jason comes in to have some water. New bed = new place to hang out apparently.
Ya’ll, he’s sleeping. Kindly fuck off.
How’d you sleep?
Trent: My parents flirted on my bed for most of the night. I was so uncomfortable.
Trent gets a job as a diver, because why not. It’s a part-time job with only 3 hours an evening on weekdays so I figured that’s great for a torch holder.
Unfortunate custom content strikes our mail-person. Who delivers the mail in a sexy one-piece?
I guess she has to swim to the island to bring the mail to us haha.
I see this very interesting local when I take Trent out to meet people and I find her features so cool that I decide immediately that I must have her.
Her name is Kalamainu’u Iona. It’s a mouthful haha.
I decide after this point, I’m going to call her Kala, because it’s easier to spell.
Trent gets to know her for a while, we find out she’s Non-Committal and Mean. I suppose I can deal with another Non-committal sim (Julianna has the trait as well). If she gives us cool-looking babies I can deal.
The hang out for a few hours then Trent’s first day at work arrives so we have to run off.
Apparently Kala is also a co-worker so I’m going to pretend they hung out at work as well. Look at him in his little scuba clothes.
Doesn’t take much convincing to invite Kala to come hang out at the house.
Doesn’t take long for the flirts to start flying.
Trent asks Kala out on a date the next day and she accepts. They head back out to the area where they met. There’s a pretty park and a bar around here.
They don’t even head into the bar though.
A pretty easy first kiss, I have to admit. It was at this point that I started feeling very lucky haha.
We get them to go steady quickly enough.
Kala moves in after the date is over. I had Trent invite her back to the house and then spammed friendly interactions until we had the option to ask her to move in.
So I found out something interesting about her when I put her in CAS. Three guesses?
You’ll see soon enough.
Kalamainu’u Iona is a Loner, Mean, Non-Committal, Dastardly, Muser. Her aspiration is Chief of Mischief.
Guess what they’re about to do?
After some fun-times with Trent, Kala heads to the ocean for some autonomous swimming.
Did you guys guess?? Did you already know?!
Kala is a mermaid! I found a mermaid, ya’ll!!
Her mermaid form is so cool, very pale and her tail is so cool.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I watched her swim around for a good while.
I really like her, guys.
So we have a new interaction to try out “Woohoo in Waterfall”
I will warn though that I had some route-failing after the woohoo ended and both of them had to go to work as divers. My MCCC caught a last exception error but it’s apparently a normal Sims 4 bug. Just in case anyone needed to know.
I like that sims do this autonomously. Makes me feel like it wasn’t a waste putting all those towels out.
Kala finds out she’s pregnant while she’s swinging!
Kala tells Trent the news and he is super happy about it. So cute!
At this point I removed all the fish-related dishes from the fridge and threw them away. Apparently Kala gets sick eating fish and even if you make ‘Tofu Tacos’ people will still get the ‘fresh catch’ moodlet when they eat it and Kala will end up getting nauseated from it.
She also does this in the bath. So freaking cool, ya’ll.
I don’t use skin overlays with genitalia, but I still decided to add some censors just in case haha.
New Years Eve arrives and the family watches the ball drop together.
New Years kisses and some preggo belly!
She whined at the door all night wanting to be walked. I felt so bad.
We have a bit of romance before Trent does something that I hope we don’t regret.
Trent proposes. I was on pins and needles. With our founder getting rejected a bunch and me not even having the balls to have Jason propose to Julianna, fearing rejection. I was so nervous to do this.
She accepts though and I’m so ecstatic.
We plan the wedding right away!
Look at how cute~!
I love the black wedding dress. It matches her personality and aesthetic so well.
Jason and Julianna are in their fancy clothes and look super happy.
I invited all the living relatives, but since only Lisa lives in town, she was the only one to arrive. I believe this is a known glitch with this expansion pack. It’s okay though, Trent and Lisa are very close.
Some cute interactions before vows are read.
Of course it starts raining and Kala had to go swimming and decided to get married in her bikini.
(Note Jason, Julianna and Lisa watching from inside haha)
The wedding was still very cute. I enjoyed it.
Wedding cake made by Jason is shared.
And Kala’s portrait is added to the attic.
She is pregnant in her picture, but I figured it was cute and there was no issue with it.
Only mildly obsessed with her.
I send Trent diving. I was a bit disappointed to see that I couldn’t go down there with him but he found a pretty stone and ended up giving it to Kala.
Labor pains start while Kala is playing games on the computer.
She also gets sick, poor thing.
I give her some medicine and she sleeps off labor.
Here we go!
It’s a boy! Meet Evan Goodman!
Right after giving birth, Kala wets herself and I get my first fail in a long time.
Trent is so excited.
I thought about ending the chapter here, we have our first fifth generation baby and he’s eligible for heir. I did already play so I might as well put everything up lol.
Jason becomes an elder. I don’t see the point in changing his look haha.
I believe this is Jason and Kala’s first interaction.
If you guys didn’t know (I sure didn’t) this is what mermaid plumbobs look like!
Kala is pregnant again.
I wanted at least 3 kids this generation since part of Trent’s aspiration is to be friends with 3 of his kids.
Evan’s birthday arrives!
Here he is, cute as a button, like all toddlers!
Evan gets the Silly trait.
We get another milestone for Trent’s aspiration done. More points!
Here’s some cuteness-spam while we wait for Kala to give birth.
It’s a girl!
You already see that second bassinet, there’s no fooling you.
Baby #2 is a boy and his name is Tanner!
We officially have 3 kids for the generation! Twins are so useful haha.
Jason and Evan hang out.
Julianna’s birthday finally arrives.
And I’m side-tracked by this.
Evan: Mama? D:
Kala: *angry dolphin noises*
Evan: Mama why? D:
Yeah that distracted me a lot haha. I send Trent to fix it pretty quickly, because Evan was so sad about it.
Kala: Thanks for cleaning up the mess I made in a blind rage. *smooch*
Trent: Anytime ❤
Oh yeah, here’s Julianna xD
I changed up her style a bit, she’s a very cute granny.
A local lifeguard decides to lounge in one of our floaties. Quit it D:
Still more time-killing. It’s nice just watch the family hang out.
At this point Evan has maxed out his Communication and Imagination toddler skills, earning us points. He’s been the most accomplished toddler of the legacy so far.
Trent hypes up the twins for their birthday.
Here’s Tanner, he got the Independent trait.
Karly gets the Angelic trait.
They’re both very cute and different, even though they both got black hair and brown eyes. I really hope Kala’s different bone structure helps spice up the legacy a bit. Plus, I forgot to mention earlier, all three kids have the mer-person icon in CAS, though they have no mer-form as toddlers. So far, all of the generation 5 kids are mer-folk. How exciting!
We’ll have to wait and see if Evan transforms in the water after his next birthday, though I suspect it won’t happen till he’s a teen.
Should we try for more kids or just stop at 3? The household isn’t so crazy, even with 3 toddlers, but I would wait until Tanner and Karly’s birthday was pretty close before having Trent and Kala try for more kids. I figured I’d let you guys help me decide. I’d be interested in seeing if all of their kids get Kala’s mer-gene.
Thanks for reading! ❤
