Chad De Rolo – Dad, Young Adult
Lenore De Rolo – Mom. Young Adult
So I joined the ranks and decided to start my own Baby Boom challenge. Where we have to have 12 girls and 12 boys. You can find the rules here.
So let me introduce Lenore and Chad De Rolo. Lenore is a sim I created and she is Family oriented, Creative, and Neat. And Lenore’s husband Chad, whom I downloaded from the gallery he is created by Deligracy (the only things I changed about Chad was two of his traits, his aspiration, some of his clothes, and I gave him a tatoo), is Music lover, Ambitious, and Family Oriented. Leonor’s aspiration is Painter Extraordinaire and Chad’s aspiration is Mixologist. The last name De Rolo is from a D&D show Critical Role.
The De Rolo’s house sits on the 60×60 lot in Brindleton Bay. Chad, being an ambitious sim, looked for a job right away and got hired as an assistant dishwasher.
Lenore couldn’t wait to start painting on the easel her husband gave her when they moved into their new house.
Not wanting to be an assistant dishwasher long Chad was eager to improve his skills as fast as he could; though his fingers suffered for it.
Though the couple was eager to start their family Chad and Lenore decided to wait a little bit longer. And make the house a little bit more presentable before bringing their children into it.
Their next door neighbors, the Delgados, gave the couple a warm welcome into the neighborhood.
One of the milestones Chad needs to achieve is making 10 drinks, so here he is making 10 glasses of water.
Lenore tries her hand at cooking. She actually made a pretty decent mac and cheese dish.
I was going to wait longer before they tried for a baby, but Lenore rolled a wish to try and who am I to say no. Unfortunately the couple was unsuccessful and Chad had to go to work so they couldn’t try again right away.
This put Lenore in a depressed state. She painted her first emotion painting. Which she needs to do 2 more emotion paintings for her current milestone so this turned out to be advantageous, sadly.
Though Chad hasn’t gotten a promotion yet they were able to afford, mostly from Lenore’s paintings, to by him the cheapest bar.
Lenore decided to go to the local museum to help her get her mind off her depression and get more inspiration for new paintings.
When she got home from the museum Lenore decided it was time to try again. And this time it was a success! Baby #1 is on it’s way!
Later that night a mysterious visitor brakes into Chad and Lenore’s house.
The visitor took advantage of a sleeping Chad and mesmerized him so he could take Chad’s blood.
This left Chad sleep deprived.
Ladies and Gentlemen Lenore painted her first masterpiece! I sold it of course, I can’t remember the exact price but it was around 1200.
I was able to put in flooring and paint the walls. It’s not much but it’s starting to look less sparse and more like a home.
This picture is just to show off Lenore’s cute little baby bump.
And a promotions for Chad!
With Chad’s promotion and Lenore’s paintings I was able to add a room.
Poor Lenore has been working so hard to sell her paintings, so she can get the house in order before the baby arrives, that her needs have plummeted.
Lenore’s labor face. I sent her to the hospital alone; and I figured she would get the mood bonus but she didn’t. 😦
Meet baby girl Bailey De Rolo! I think I’m going to switch from the B naming theme in the rules to the (H T T P S B O O L P R O P N E T I N D E X P H P) naming theme suggestion on Boolprop as an alternative naming theme. I just don’t think I can handle 12+ kids with B names.
Anyway that’s it for this chapter. Short and sweet. I think most chapters for this challenge are going to be short, but when more kids are born the chapters might get a little bit longer so we shall see.
