Round 1: DeBateau (Season 1: Fall)

DeBateau Household:

Armand DeBateau: Family/Romance  |  LTW: Reach Golden Anniversary  |  First Wishes: Tara Gets A+ Report Card/is An Overachiever, Get Fit, Play With  |  Fulfilled First: Play With

Tara DeBateau: Knowledge/Grilled Cheese  |  LTW: Max Out 7 Skills  |  First Wishes: Go to College, Eat/Influence Someone to Make/Serve Grilled Cheese Sandwiches  |  Fulfilled First: Serve Grilled Cheese


Tara spent a good portion of the morning feeding her GC wants.  Then it was time for school.  When got back she had a wish for a cell phone, so to the community lots she went.

I realized during this strange  adventure, no community lots in Belladonna have cell phone machine things.  Not a one.  We finally went somewhere downtown to buy her one.  Then she spent time playing pool.  I think that is Nathan Gavigan in the white....he's becoming a bit of a blog hog.

Arman wished lots of things for his daughter, but being a family AND romance sim he REALLY wanted love.  They have a lot of money so he called the gypsy lady over and asked for a date.

Meanwhile Tara was feeding herself a grilled cheese.  She really liked making these after school, and serving them.

Armand got his date from the gypsy lady and it's none other than Tammy, the woman Carlos Contender wasn't hitting it off with so well last entry.

Armand did not have a similar problem, and with wishes being met left and right they fell in love.  Then wishes became about Tara again.

So Armand took the time to teach his daughter to study.  In the meantime Tara has been easy to keep happy making grilled cheese and skilling.  If she goes to college, which looks likely, she will have a MILLION scholarships.

Armand then wanted to get engaged to Tammy.  So down on one knee he went.  She excitedly said yes.

After that Armand wanted to take their relationship to the next level so they hopped into bed together.  Risky has been very silent so far in the hood, and we'll see what happens here.

Once they finished Woohooing Armand wanted to get married.  Well marriage is something we will always try and fulfill, so with Tara making grilled cheese in the kitchen Armand and Tammy had a small wedding in their underwear.  It was December 17, 2002 at 11:06PM (day 2). Her first wishes moving in were to Kiss/Flirt with Armand, Buy a Telescope Costing at Least $500, and Reach Creativity Level 1.  She decided to Flirt with Armand first.

Tammy is a knowledge sim just like Tara, but her secondary is pleasure, and that sometimes shows.  She wanted to play on couch, so she did.  Tammy's LTW is to become a Criminal Mastermind.

She wanted to look for a job, but the computer broke.  She tried to fix it, and without much mechanical knowledge she electrocuted herself.  She did survive.

She also eventually finds her job, and decided to start with practicing the piano for some creativity.  I would have thought mechanical might be her first choice, but creativity is what she wanted.

Meanwhile, Tara has been zooming through skill points.  Each time she doesn't wish for a specific skill I try and have her practice something different.  Here she plays chess for fun and logic.

Tammy had a wish to go to a Community Lot.  Since I wasn't a fan of her look I thought this wish was the perfect opportunity for a makeover.

She does have rather large lips, but with the right clothes and hair style she's not as unattractive as I initially thought.  I doubt any kids will be great beauties, but only time will tell.

Tammy and Tara aren't close, but they do bond over skilling quite often.  I'm sure they are likely to be friends by the time Tara goes to college (which seems more and more likely.)

Meanwhile, Armand, has become a COMPLETE pain.  He wants a baby.  So far Risky has not provided them with one.  He always wants to WooHoo with 3 different sims.  So far I have not had him do this, although it is within my own rules to try and meet these.  His LTW is to reach his golden anniversary though, so I'm fighting this.  He also wants to meet more people, which he spends a lot of time doing.

He FINALLY wished for a "thing" in a toy bench and I was able to find room easily in the large apartment.  Then he wished for a badge and started working on in.  He still wants a baby and to make out/woohoo with 3 different sims.

On the last day of the round Tammy was busy skilling and suddenly *POP*.  YAY, a baby for Armand, FINALLY.  Glad Risky decided to let them have a baby.


Anxiously awaiting the baby Armand decides to try and paint a Masterpiece.  I hope it will keep him busy for awhile.  I have thought about locking in the WooHoo with 3 different sims and just waiting until after the party for that, but right now Have a Baby is locked in.



Armand:  Was easy in the beginning, but then became insanely difficult.  No matter what I did with him he kept wishes for a baby and woohooing.  He doesn't know anyone well enough to even try for a woohoo yet so his wishes were not often met throughout the day.
Ending Wishes: Make Out with 3 Different Sims, Meet Someone New, Sell a Masterpiece and Have a Baby

Tammy: Came in part way through the round and has been a pleasure.  She is truly a knowledge sim, very happy with skilling in the fall.  Her pleasure side took over every once in awhile, but mostly it was skill, skill, skill and then do things with Armand.
Ending Wishes: Ask Sim on Date, Be Saved From Death, Play Marco Polo and Eat Pancakes

Tara: The easiest of all sims to keep happy.  As long as she was skilling she was happy.  Between all the skills, and grilled cheese wishes I don't think she missed 5 wishes any day this season.  She never loses the go to college wish.  Once in awhile it spins away for a different wish (like right after waking up) and it's back when she comes home from school.
Ending Wishes: Go to College, Get A+ Report Card, Be Saved from Death, Maximize the Logic Skill


  1. I like the Knowledge/Grilled Cheese combo- so many different wishes spin up. She's unlikely to lose her college wish but you never know. Tammy is a nice addition and next time perhaps Armand will be a bit happier when he gets his baby!
    Oh, it'll be a shame if he cheats then he won't get his golden anniversary wish, but hey, it might be fun, ;)

    1. I'm quite annoyed with Armand at the moment. LOL I will probably have him do it if it spins up again after the baby, but maybe the baby will keep him happy. :) Tara is a fun and VERY easy sim so far, and I like Tammy with the knowledge/pleasure. Spring should shake her wishes up a bit I would imagine.

  2. You are right, Tammy isn't the most beautiful of ladies, but she looks a lot better after her make-over. So nice to see Tara as a teenager again! In my game, she's an elderly lady already, and married to her 3-bolt-love Alexander Goth.

    1. Thanks for reading! :) I think Tammy and Armand have 3 bolts, so it was pretty inevitable that would happen. I'm interested to see what the baby looks like cause it's an interesting genetic combo. I wonder if Alexander and her have 3 bolts in this hood too. I guess we'll see when I finally get to the Goth house.

  3. One thing is for sure in the Sim world, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :) I have learned not to look too much at a Sim's genetics when playing. What ever keeps my Simmies happy. Armand and Tammy will be very happy!

    1. I still like to follow the genetics, but I don't really pay any attention to what they look like most of the time. If that's who the sim loves, then that's just fine. I'm actually curious to see what these two's kids look like though. :)

  4. Your Tammy is (was, because she's dead now) called Marita. She married Evert Myhr and had two children, Rolf and Agnes. None of them have inherited the lips and look pretty ok

    1. Oh wow, you are right, neither kid really inherited her "iffy" spots. lol. I did't make the connection to her, so I'm glad you pointed that out. :) Thanks for reading, and hope you are enjoying the wishes. :)
