Pondefloor: I had the same thing only worse. Dustin (via ACR) had 2 kids, 3 toddlers, then TRIPLETS! "I'm taking away the couch! And no more double bed for you!" And since everyone ignored one of the triplets, when they turned toddlers the mom (Angela) took it into "the woods" (big yard with trees) and left it in the snow. I had told her to hold the toddler (a screaming brat, even the kids teased her) then go jogging, and that's when she let me know how she REALLY felt!. Their house is on a foundation, and everyone was happily ignoring the starving green girl...I hired a nanny who finally brought her inside. But by then the kid was a terror, nobody could do anything with her.
OMG I let THEM abuse a child! BAD Gramma!
Augh I know exactly what you're talking about! My family sims care more about making babies than taking care of them and they ave four kids running wild throughou the house and they're too poor to hire a nanny or a maid so everything's filthy and it's just a huge mess but now one of the toddlers is about to be a child so there's even more space issues. If I didn't have the no social workers hack, they would have been taken ages ago.
If love is what saves all the creatures then why can't I hear them howl? New Livejournal
pondefloor: yea, ha ha. Just like REAL people who like MAKING babies, but have neither the money or the interest to take care of them. I've played that out lots of time; it's just FUN! Then I pick the child with the most "clean" or "serious" points and make them clean everything, buy groceries; grow up and get a job to support everyone, while missing school as much as possible so they can potty train all the babies...Doesn't that sound like a fun challenge?
It's heart-warming to hear of a nanny who cares more than the family Sims.
Family Sims want a bunch of kids but they don't seem to care about them once they have them. There are a lot of Knowledge Sim/Family Sim pairings in my game and even though most of the time the Knowledge Sim didn't roll a want for the child, they seem to take better care of them once they have them.

Reason: Can't double post.
Before my days of MTS:
"SIT. DOWN. WITH. THAT. PUNCH. DON'T. STAND. THERE."
"Get back here."
"No babies for you. Build skills!"
"Go away. I can find a mate myself, gypsy."
"I don't want to join the silly Gardening Club"
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I DIDN'T SAVE!"
"Hurry up and (have a) birthday/die/child cos I NEED to go to the 'hood!"
"Thought I killed you off."
"HIT HIM BACK"
"Oh sweet Agnes CrumpleBottom. Why don't you stay for a spot of....POISONED TEA?!"
"Dag dag, Nib! Frabanage! Haloo! E wam..........ANACONDA!" - Brandi Broke.
"Stop kissing that sponge mop and WooHoo with the maid already!!"
"Dude, stop complaining that the chair's occupied when you're standing right next to it!!! Use your eyes!"
"Oh, will you stop blocking the doorway already? That's a fire hazard, you know!"
"Stop hiking up all those flights of stairs to your apartment just to put your homework down! Just put it on the sidewalk and I'll use my Hand of God to move it up for you."
"Ooh, a teenager just PWNED an adult in a fight."
"I really hate it when you turn on the stereo, then turn on the TV, then go and play computer games. Do you idiots not know what 'Saving Electricity' means??"
"Looks like making out in front of Mrs. CrumpleButt was a bad idea..."
"Stop sitting down and staring at the wall! You can sit down and watch TV. Multi-task!"
"This house looks great, but it's missing just one little thing... I know! *selects Sim* Put those toaster pastries in the oven! Now just go outside and... yes, ignore the stove. Lovely day, eh? Hmm, smells kinda... smoky. Why don't you go back inside? Yes, have fun!"
"That Garden Club idiot is starting to get really annoying.... *goes to FFS Lot Debugger and Smites the annoying Sim*"
"You don't NEED to get up to fart, dammit! I fart in my chair all the time, and nothing bad happened. Except for sheer embarrassment, but it's even more embarrassing if you stand up to do it!"
"Think I'll watch Simlish TV with you guys."
"You've just wasted 30 Sim minutes of your life announcing to the world that you've returned home from work."
"You look really stupid cheering about your A+ on the street while your parents are fighting upstairs."
"*when kids play Cops and Robbers* This doesn't really look like C&R. Looks more like "Guns and Ninjas!" Cause you can dodge bullets even when the gun's pointed directly at you."
"*when Sims panic around a fire* I could watch this crazy dance all day. In fact, I might just record a video of myself doing it IRL!"
"Isn't this the same house that LGR moved into in his LGR Plays video?"
"I love how half the party is doing the slap dance, the other half the hula. And you're just standing there awkwardly dancing the smustle."
"Well, landlord, you said you were throwing a building party, called for a pizza, placed the box in MY apartment, and none of my neighbors ever left their homes. You sure do suck at throwing parties when there is no party."
Just relaxing after long hours of house building and getting a family settled in. Saved game, exited and watching TV on the PC while enjoying some home made fudge. Suddenly . . OMG! The pregnancy music!! Huh?!? What?!? Damn washer dryer commercial with the same little chime sounds . . .
