"The New Bohemians" Part 2

Friday, Day 12
"Potty McPot Pots"

TroubadourF01 020

TroubadourF01 025

TroubadourF01 027

TroubadourF01 029

Kent is the first one up and releases Cyan from the crib.

TroubadourF01 030

More potty training for Cyan. She's bound to get the hang it sooner or later.

TroubadourF01 031

Matisse is up and ready to face the day. Today the newest bohemian will make their presence. Matisse has to mentally prepare herself.
Matisse: Deep breaths girl, you got this.

TroubadourF01 039

As Matisse sits down to breakfast Kent can tell that she's really tense and nervous.
Kent: We should hang out on the beach today. Relaxing on the sand is just what you need.

TroubadourF01 047

The couple spend the afternoon lounging on the beach watching the clouds.
Kent: I swear that one looks like a bath tub. Do you see it?
Kent's master plan worked. Matisse is calm and relaxed and having a great time.

That is until...

TroubadourF01 051

What the deuce?

TroubadourF01 052

Rocky: He thinks he's going to stop selling bubble juice does he? Thinks he's going legit cause he's got a baby on the way? That'll show 'em!

TroubadourF01 054

Rocky: ...that'll show 'em...
Who knew Rocky Kotsomiti was the Bubble Juice Kingpin of Oceanside???

TroubadourF01 055

Thank goodness Matisse and Kent missed all of the trash-knocking-over drama. They are content in their own little world.

TroubadourF01 060

TroubadourF01 067

When Matisse leaves for a nap Kent notices the kicked over trash. He knows this is a message from the Kotsomiti crime family.

TroubadourF01 068

Nervous, Kent cleans up the mess before Matisse sees it. She must never find out about his past...

TroubadourF01 072

That evening Kent runs into Connor Firestone, town mechanic, and introduces himself. Connor looks like a tough guy that can take care of himself. He might be a good friend to have around if things get ugly with Kotsomiti.

TroubadourF01 078

Matisse's brother, musician Kendrick Troubadour, jogs by and gossips with Kent.
Kendrick: Yo, Fitz Biltmore told me he wears high heels when he woohoos Sadie. They're some freaky sims!
*Best Friends*

TroubadourF01 082

As the guys bond over a sporting event...

TroubadourF01 085

Miss Cyan is awake and in need of the potty.

TroubadourF01 086

TroubadourF01 095





TroubadourF01 098

Cyan Troubadour-Bossanova is the first potty trained tot in Oceanside, everyone! I knew you were the chosen one! *tear*

TroubadourF01 100

After all of the excitement Kent says goodnight to the guys...

TroubadourF01 102

and cuddles in bed with Matisse.

TroubadourF01 106

Cuddle time is cut short when Matisse goes into labor.

TroubadourF01 109

TroubadourF01 119

It's another beautiful baby girl!!!

TroubadourF01 123

Skye Troubadour-Healey has her father's medium skintone and dark blue eyes, and her mother's black hair.

TroubadourF01 124

Kent is ecstatic! He's so happy to meet his beautiful baby girl! This is the best day of his life!

Saturday, Day 13
"Healey Potter and The Chamber Pot of Secrets"

TroubadourF01 005

Baby Skye is the cutest thing in Oceanside!

TroubadourF01 015

Matisse cuddles, plays, and nurses Skye until finally placing her in Cyan's crib. She didn't want to put her down! Pretty soon Matisse will remove her photography studio and give Skye her own room, but right now the girls are sharing.

TroubadourF01 016

TroubadourF01 017

Matisse needs to start working again. Since law wasn't her thing -- and there's an opening in the Journalism career since Diego quit -- Matisse takes up Journalism. She can take all of the photography for the paper and draw the Sunday funnies. It will be great!

TroubadourF01 020

Cyan wakes up and notices something in her crib.
Cyan: What the hell is that? Is that a BABY? IS IT CUTER THAN ME??!!

TroubadourF01 021

Naturally Cyan turns to Mrs. Crumplebear for guidance.
Cyan: Missus Cwumplewear, Is that baby gwoing to stay for-evwer?

TroubadourF01 023

Cyan: What do you mean, yes? She's NOT CUTER THAN ME! DIE CWUMPLEWEAR! DIE!!!

In a saner part of the house...

TroubadourF01 031

Matisse: *FART*

TroubadourF01 033

Matisse: *tee-hee* That was a good one.


TroubadourF01 035

Since it's almost winter, Matisse finally changes out of her favorite tank top and denim skirt combo for warmer clothes.

TroubadourF01 036

TroubadourF01 039

Just three more and she can become an "official" artist!

TroubadourF01 040

Cyan: It's just you and me Mr. Potty Chair. We can do this!
Do it Cyan, Do it!

TroubadourF01 041


TroubadourF01 044

TroubadourF01 045

TroubadourF01 049

TroubadourF01 051

This girl is working it! *sniff* I'm so proud!

TroubadourF01 055

TroubadourF01 057

TroubadourF01 061

Finally done with Becca on Pink in Green 4.0...

TroubadourF01 067

Matisse eats breakfast while Kent heads across the street to the shop.

TroubadourF01 069

Healey Potter is a cute little two story shop where Kent sells his handmade pottery.

TroubadourF01 071

TroubadourF01 072

TroubadourF01 073

TroubadourF01 074

TroubadourF01 076

TroubadourF01 082

Kent had the bright idea to place his pottery wheel in the middle of the sales floor. That way the customers could see that he actually makes every piece by hand.

TroubadourF01 088

And the customers start pouring in.

TroubadourF01 089

Owen Goodacre, I wouldn't take you for the artisanal ceramics type?
Owen: I see a dead lizard. Dead lizards are funny!
Just what I thought...

TroubadourF01 091

Brodie Mason grabs the ginormous floor vase...

TroubadourF01 092

and Minka takes Kent's small vase.

TroubadourF01 094

Kent only has a simple cash box, but he still can't figure out how much change Brodie should have.

TroubadourF01 096

TroubadourF01 099

He hopes all will be forgiven when he gives her his pitiful cute face.

TroubadourF01 100

TroubadourF01 101

Back to the wheel for Kent as Garden Clubber Heaven Gallo enters. He hopes she's not here to start trouble. Kent knows that the "Garden Club" is just a front for Kotsomiti's illegal bubble juice trade, but the other residents don't. He's pretty sure Heaven doesn't want to make a scene and tip them off.

TroubadourF01 102

TroubadourF01 103

Just in time to replace the one Brodie bought.

TroubadourF01 104

Owen buys the wall gecko that he liked so much. Don't know if it really works with your country decor but we'll see!

TroubadourF01 109

Kent restocks as Selena Firestone enters the shop. This stuff fits her style perfectly!

TroubadourF01 116

Kent is doing quite well for his first day of business!

TroubadourF01 124

TroubadourF01 126


TroubadourF01 131

Kent closes up shop when his hygiene gets to be too much for his customers. He re-stocks what he can...

TroubadourF01 134

and heads home.

Back at the house...

TroubadourF01 137

Bruce is back again looking for Kent...

TroubadourF01 138

Skye is doing that twisty-screamy thing babies do.

TroubadourF01 139

Cyan: I think we should give it back. It's defective.

TroubadourF01 140

TroubadourF01 144

After a quick change Mommy brings Skye outside for her first art lesson -- same as she did with Cyan.

TroubadourF01 148

TroubadourF01 153

Matisse pays her rent to Malcolm. Maybe she could convince Malcolm to sell her the condo -- Matisse could be very convincing when she wanted to... if you know what I mean.

TroubadourF01 151

TroubadourF01 173

Matisse doesn't want Cyan to feel unloved now that her sister has arrived so she tries to spend some Mommy and Me time with her. Now is a good time to teach Cyan how to walk.

TroubadourF01 176

TroubadourF01 179

I'm telling you, this is the best kid in Oceanside. *Not a biased statement at all*

TroubadourF01 186

TroubadourF01 187

TroubadourF01 189

Soon it's nap time for everyone.

TroubadourF01 196

When Kent returns from work he heads straight to Skye.

TroubadourF01 202

He's such a proud papa! Just being with his little angel gives him hope for the future. Hope that his bubble juice days are over and he's free to live his life the way he wants.

TroubadourF01 208

TroubadourF01 213

With his ladies.

Notes: If I was really on my game I could have come up with some awesome Harry Potter puns when naming all of the pottery -- maybe next Troubadour/Healey update :(

OMG Skye is so cute!! And Cyan potty trained so quickly! I was doing a little happy dance over here. I love Matisse's family.

Thank you for reading! ^.^

I lost it at the start with 'All that pot has given Kent the munchies' Your updates are always hilarious.....and your buildings always give me envy :P
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on March 13th, 2015 01:32 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you ^.^

ETA: I think I wrote "pot" 465,000 times in this update. There's just so much pot!!!

The dark side of the Garden Club... Mwahahahaha! Love it!

Kent's shop looks sharp. All of your businesses are so dang attractive.

Just so you know, my Downloads Folder doesn't like you very much. Your game is too pretty! Every time you update I spy something that I just have to find for my game too. ~snort~
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on March 13th, 2015 01:36 am (UTC)
Don't mess with the Garden Club, yo!

Thank you! ^.^ Tell your downloads folder that it has to get used to it. There's just too much pretty cc out there :) I think mine is about to explode!

Cyan is definitely following her mother's footsteps, isn't she?
Is Matisse planning to open an Art Gallery or a Becca Shrine?
Y'know, it makes perfect sense for Rocky to have a bubble juice business - all this knowledge of plant properties he has.
Skye looks cute, can't wait to see how she'll turn out older.
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on March 16th, 2015 07:07 pm (UTC)
I'm afraid she has an abnormal obsession with Becca! Please paint something else!!!!

Yep, he does! I should have known Rocky was a drug dealer because he always buys lots of items from the other sims' businesses. No one else, besides the Landgraabs, have that much money to spend.
Simlilisimlili on March 18th, 2015 07:51 pm (UTC)
DUN DUN DUN... and here I was, thinking there wasn't any crime in Oceanside, even the burglar never actually steals anything..

But Rocky... he was too good to be true, I should have known. There was no way he could have dressed like that on a mere GC paycheck, let's face it.
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on March 19th, 2015 02:59 am (UTC)
I know, right!? He's too well put together to just be homeless and living in a cave with the other NPCs. The whole Garden Club has money from the looks of them.

You know, technically the criminal career is unlocked even though I need the Business District opened to build anything for them... Just saying.
