Poor Lancelot and Layla spent more than a Sim week in solid mourning, poor guys. And without the expected help from the grandparents, raising a baby was quite a bit of work.
Thought they did have a lot of… unexpected help.
Sometimes, a bit too enthusiastic help.
(This is Cycl0n3 trying to change Zahra’s diaper after Lance already did it.)
It looked like Lance and Zahra were going to share a birthday, so they threw a joint birthday party with their newly-discovered cousin Rachel Ursine, Lance’s best friend Julian Ursine (now a cop), Malika Williams, and a coworker of Layla’s.
Not if you know what’s good for you, Lance dear.
Layla brought the baby out to blow out her candles and age up.
At which point, all hell broke loose.
Yes, the burning candle on the cake SET THE CAKE ON FIRE, and proceeded to set the counter and washing machine on fire too. Meanwhile, the Sims did what they always do in the presence of fire — freak out and run into the flames.
Fortunately, our local white knight was there to save the day.
In the resulting confusion, Layla put the baby in a safe place
and then peed herself.
For all of that, the party was a modest success. Apparently the lack of edible cake was surpassed by the entertainment of nearly being incinerated.
OK, no more birthday parties shared with Lancelot. He may not be allowed to have birthdays at all.
At least Zahra got to age up.
Oh. My. God. My eyes are bleeding. Makeover, please!
