Wants a Plenty, Round 2: Broke

Previously, Brandi toddler trained Beau in her spare time, gave birth to Brandon and tried to be a good mom to Dustin.  Dustin and Angela are a thing, of course.  Dustin helps out Beau with learning to talk and later his homework.  Brandon was born at the end of the chapter.

Brandi was supposed to be a Romance/Popularity?  Weird.  Now she’s a Family/Romance.  *shrug*

Brandi wants love, marriage and 10 kids today (well maybe not today), but currently.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 05-54-51.jpg

She decides to give herself a quick update.  Sadly, the family is too poor for new clothes, but maybe someday.

Daniel rings the bell just as the family goes to bed for the night.  I woke up Brandi since she could use some male attention.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-06-28.jpg

Apparently, he just randomly showed up because he must have had a meet someone new want.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-09-41.jpg

After a night of chatting, Daniel falls in love and Brandi, who wants to fall in love, does not.  She sends him on his way and heads to bed.

With her and Dustin’s paychecks and promotion money, some needed upgrades are placed.  The hallway is now walled off so the family can watch tv without waking up Brandon.

Dustin brings Alex home, but he has to leave for work before they can chat.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-26-41.jpg

Beau brings home little Tessa Ramirez and they almost become friends.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-27-15.jpg

She is awfully skinny.  Probably poor diet after years of being poor.  She did not get a promotion today though.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-31-44.jpg

Dustin and Beau enjoy a dinner of pork chops that Brandi made.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-32-31.jpg

It took hours for Brandon’s birthday.  The trailer just is not big enough and she kept getting frustrated with the whole thing.  She finally had to drop him on the kitchen floor and wait and try again.  It ends up being 2 am the next day before it happens.

He’s awfully cute though.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-33-22.jpg

Brandi is not happy with how slowly the potty training is going.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-35-08.jpg

Luckily, she is platinum over whatever and can give him smart milk.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-37-55.jpg

Brandi much likes skilling when the kid can do it faster than normal.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-38-11.jpg

Beau wakes up the next morning and cleans up the dishes from the previous night.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 06-57-37.jpg

Calista the nanny keeps erroring.  I finally deleted her ass, but it was more than an hour before Dustin was to get home.  Whew, I didn’t want to lose the kids, that’s for sure.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-01-56.jpg

Dustin was late for work because he had to wait for Brandi to get home.  He becomes our town’s first Overachiever and can finally go to college on Sunday.

Dustin:  Why are you here again?

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-02-14.jpg

Daniel:  Your mom needs exercise and I’m going to show her how to do it lying down.

Dustin:  Gross.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-10-25.jpg

Brani has no real interest in Daniel and she knew Dustin hated him, so she got rid of him and headed out to find love elsewhere.

With Malcolm already engaged and only 1 bolt with him and Brandi, she just stayed long enough to greet people to make future friends and then she left.

Everyone there was either negative bolts or 1 bolt.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-16-37.jpg

Then it happened.  Brandi met a hot guy and she immediately wants to be his friend and eventually ask him on a date.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-17-31.jpg

Brandi is even more interested when she finds out she can use him to pull strings at work.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-20-45.jpg

I love the faces she makes.  I think she’s my favorite sim in town right now.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-22-20.jpg

It doesn’t take long for her to fall for him too.  They ended up with the expected dream date.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-23-01.jpg

During the date, they both rolled engagement wants to each other.  So, Brandi made it official.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-25-48.jpg

They got a bit carried away on the sofa.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-36-34.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-37-13.jpg

Back home, everyone needs some mommy attention.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-41-22.jpg

Angela is randomly showing up for Dustin.  He never fails to greet her.  I think they may make it from teen love to adult.  Let’s just hope college wants don’t ruin this.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-44-49.jpg

Beau is still trying to be best friends with Tessa.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-48-27.jpg

Brandi invites Willard over (we waited a day to see if he would bring her a date gift…he didn’t).

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-48-51.jpg

Brandi wasn’t too optimistic on his bank account and decided she didn’t care either way.  She was quietly pleased to be a step up from the poor house.

Also, Brandi’s name changed from Broke to Reynolds.  Dustin will inherit the trailer.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 07-50-16.jpg

Holy inventory, Batman!  WOOO!  This adds another $12,000 to the household.

Willard changes his likes/dislikes and now he and Brandi have 3 bolts (from 2).  Willard is level 9 in Athletic and he actually has all the skills he needs for it.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-30-18.jpg

Brandi plays with Brandon and they become best friends finally.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-33-02.jpg

Brandi always stands so rigid.  Here she is after her first pop.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-33-44.jpg

Family dinner.  It might be time to upgrade to a bigger house.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-34-18.jpg

Dustin:  Why are you ringing the bell at 2 am?
Angela:  I was going to die if I didn’t see you again.
Dustin:  Oh.  Cool.

He greets her, flirts with her and sends her home.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-36-48.jpg

More best friendage.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-39-20.jpg

Willard making good with Brandon by playing with him.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-42-23.jpg

It’s nice that he will have a good paycheck.  They family doesn’t have enough friends for a promotion though.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-50-42.jpg

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-51-08.jpg

Tessa is invited over and she wanted to bring a friend.  We need more friends, so they say yes.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-51-26.jpg

She brings her dad Checo.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-52-09.jpg

Dustin:  You’re such a stalker!
Angela:  I LOVE YOU, DUSTIN!!

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-52-14.jpg

Dustin:  Geez, calm down.  I love you, too.  Now go home!

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-54-04.jpg

Brandon has his birthday!

Leo, 3/10/6/10/1

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 09-56-24.jpg

Beau danced to death and went to bed as did Willard.  The goal is to get the Footwork Scholarship, but it was left too long.  The ones left awake dance the night away.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 10-00-08.jpg

Brandi gets the Trips and Quads hack inserted.  She wants 10 kids and I’m going to give it a go.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 10-16-45.jpg

It’s Monday morning and the town jerk is now the first to head off to University.

Brandi:  Don’t you dare leave without saying goodbye!
Dustin:  Mom, I’m only going to be gone four years, not forever!

~+~+~+~+~+~+~

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 10-26-26.jpg

Brandi would add a random skill want in with her fall in love, have a baby, have 10 babies, go on date wants.  The other open spots were reserved for the kids.  There was a lot of play with Brandon/Beau wants.  Next time, she will finally get rid of that baby want and maybe I will unlock the 10 kids.  If it doesn’t roll away, we’ll keep trying.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 10-27-45.jpg

Willard is a new member of the family.  He does want a baby, but mostly he just had these same boring wants over and over.  When Dustin left for college, they lost two friends. It will be eons before he tops his career.

Aquarius, 4/8/7/7/6.  He’s a Family/Popularity.
LTW: Become Hall of Famer

Dustin:  I didn’t think to get his ending wants.  His was mostly earn money, earn x amount of money, Go to College.  I do use that want to go college as a reason to do homework and learn skills.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 10-34-33.jpg

Beau spent his time playing chess and talking with Tessa.  After finally becoming best friends, Beau decided to concentrate on doing well in school and growing up well.

Sims2EP9 2019-09-22 10-37-10.jpg

Brandon had normal toddler wants and did well.  He did grow up well and has enjoyed becoming a child.  I do believe that Tessa is the only child in the world.
