Let's begin this Skabadoo update with...fishies!!

(688).png(690).png(691).png(692).png

Sequoia, my little nature boy, loves them!

(693).png(694).png(695).png(696).png

Aw, I didn't know toddlers could watch the fish too!

(697).png

But it can be exhausting.

(689).png(699).png
(698).png(700).png

Poor Sequoia didn't land a single hit on his mother.

(702).png(701).png(703).png(704).png

And not even hiding in the sunflowers helped him avoid her projectiles!

(705).png

Julian, meanwhile, is still on the hunt for aliens.

(706).png

"Maybe if I shared a room with that big picture frame, I would actually get some sleep..."

(707).png

But once he's awake and free from his crib, Rowan is good about playing quietly for his big brother. :)

(708).png

Rose and Julian sneak away for some time to themselves...and to playtest the newest community lot in Skabadooville.

(709).png(710).png

Rose finds some unusual rollerskates.

(712).png(713).png
(711).png(714).png

Hmm, not the most romantic date...

(715).png

Ah, that's better!

(717).png

Yay, my first green-skinned NPC/townie! :D

(716).png

And a cool-looking warlock too. My game is so good about giving me interesting NPCs. :)

(719).png(720).png(721).png
(722).png(723).png(718).png

Might as well buy some groceries while they're here.

(729).png(731).png(730).png
(734).png

Back at home, there's some cute brotherly bonding going on. :)

(735).png(736).png(737).png(738).png

Ah, child labour. So useful. :) Good thing Sequoia loves the great outdors!

(733).png

His mother, on the other hand, prefers the nice and warm indoors.

(740).png(741).png

"Argh, bad grades! I'll just hide the evidence..."

(742).png(743).png

Yep, for sure nobody saw that, Sequoia. You must inherit your sneakyness from your mother.

(744).png(745).png

Oh hey, a bunch of people, including gnome-nappers. Must be a party! :D

Also, that sporty kid came home with Sequoia on the bus. His name is Kalvei. Get used to seeing him around often.

(739).png

"I spy with my little eye...a flaming idiot!"

(746).png(747).png
(748).png

"Oh hey, can I call you back? I'm kind of in the middle of my kid's birthday right now."

(749).png(750).png

Hang up the phone, Jules! Your kid is growing up right now!

(751).png
(752).png(753).png(754).png(755).png

Aw, he's so happy. :)

(757).png(756).png

Poor Sequoia couldn't stand to see him mum starting fights. Birthdays are supposed to be happy times! :(

(758).png(759).png(760).png

But then Rose came in to comfort him, which is one of the sweetest most heart-warming interactions in the game. :')

(761).png(762).png(764).png(765).png(766).png

Yeah, I took a lot of pictures...and was "Aw-ing" all over them. :)

(767).png

Meanwhile Rowan is completely oblivious to his brother's sensitive feelings and is making friends with Kalvei.

(768).png(769).png

They're completely oblivious to a few things, actually.

(773).png

It ain't a real party until Cowboy Bob starts a fight with someone. -_-

(770).png
(772).png

Once Sequoia's calmed down, he chats a bit with Kalvei too. By the end of the party, they're good friends. :)

(774).png(775).png

Rowan gets a new outift...and tries some new dance moves too. :D

(776).png

He also decides he wants to learn how to do homework, but because he's never been to school yet, he has to tackle Sequoia's pile. Feeling some regrets, Rowan?

(778).png(779).png(780).png
(782).png

"Oh, rain...yes!" :D

(781).png

"Rowan, Rowan! Wake up, it's raining outside!"

(784).png

*snore*

(783).png(785).png

"Oh my gosh! When did you learn how to read?"
"They do teach me a few things in school, mum..."

(786).png

Mmm, cake for breakfast!

(788).png(789).png(790).png

"Hey! You interrupted my breakfast!"

(792).png

"Ah well, it's still good."

(787).png(793).png(794).png

The two boys have very different levels of productivity in the morning. ;)

(795).png
(796).png

Ick, no wonder they choose to eat outside  when the dining room looks like that! Better hope that made shows up soon.

(797).png(800).png(798).png(799).png(801).png(802).png

I wonder if that licence plate actually means something, or if it was just random numbers. Because I see N64 and I just think good gaming memories. :)

(803).png(804).png(805).png(806).png

"Argh! Why are my grades so terrible?!"

(808).png

Hmm, I wonder...

(809).png

"I got a D... Boy, that sucks. Maybe I should actually do my homework for once?"

(810).png

"Nah."

(807).png(811).png(812).png

Kids sit on toilets super weirdly...

(814).png

Kalvei came home with the kids again.

(813).png

And Rowan has a surprise for his friend!

(815).png(816).png(818).png(817).png(819).png

Soooo not impressed. :P

(820).png

Sequoia is still a friend to the fish. :)

(821).png(823).png(825).png

HB#2 shows up, considers causing more trouble, and wisely decides against it.

(822).png(824).png(828).png(827).png
(826).png

Beware, nice clean bathrooms...it's Splashzilla!

(829).png

"Victory! Yes!"

(830).png

"Aw man, I suck!"

(831).png

But they're still best friends. :)

(832).png

And we'll end on the note of a sleepy Sequoia. :)

Until next time, thanks for reading! :D

I have never seen the comfort crying interaction in the game as-is! I mean, I've seen it, because I've used cheats to do it, but never have I seen it actually happen! That's so sweet!!!

The kids are adorable!

Isn't it the cutest? I think I've only seen it before when parents divorced, which does not happen often, so it was a surprise to see it happen after something so minor as a shove, but I guess Sequoia's just a sensitive soul. Adds to the cute. :)

The autonomous interactions in the game are the coolest, like the tucking in and comforting - and cleaning windows! And your game really gives you intersting NPCs! My game tends to spawn hordes of guys with body-paint (just because I don't like it...) and the most awful hairs in my DL folder as well. How does the game know what will annoy me the most? That's not creepy at all... ;)

Awww, the kids are both so cute and funny :) I'm glad they made friends with Kalvei!
Hehe, rollerskates can be so funny! I always laugh when I see them on high heeled shoes XD But that barefeet one was just hilarious XD
Ah, poor Sequoia! Seeing kids cry makes me so sad :( Good thing that Rose comforted him, aww :3
And sorry for the super late comment :)

I never turn the cut scenes on for birthdays, but now I have to next time a toddler transitions, it looked so cute.
