A Sims 4 Story: Picking a Heir

This is part three of Ashlee Zest’s journey throughout my Sims 4 Challenge. You can start from the beginning or click on the tags at the bottom of the post to pick up where you left off.

Once Bronwyn and Charlie were in school, we hired a nanny instead of sending Danielle to daycare. The kids really loved their nanny and stayed friends with her throughout their adult years as well (although I don’t know how she is still alive!).

While all three children were pretty good kids, there were lots of calls from the principal because they never did their homework and were failing out of school.

As they got older we gave them more freedom. We would go out as a family to different festivals and would leave the children there to come home when they felt like it (which was always late!).

One day while the children were all at school, their father Johnny died of old age. Ashlee was devisated but the children didn’t seem to even notice he was gone. Eventually life moved on.

Bronwyn became a Young Adult so while the younger siblings were at school, Ashlee took her out for some drinks. Bronwyn had grown into a very social adult and made lots of new friends.

When Ashlee was well into her 90s, her youngest daughter became a teenager which meant it was time to choose an Heir. The family line would be continued by her only son Charlie, and so begins a new generation…

A Sims 4 Story: Starting a Family

Read the first chapter of my Sims story starting Ashlee (Melton) Zest here.

Shortly after marriage, Ashlee and Johnny started trying for a baby. After a failed attempt, they found out they were pregnant with their first child named Bronwyn Zest.

Ashlee continued courting Johnny to try and fill her Aspiration (which due to a Sim bug was unable to fulfill) and also climbed up the ranks in her career to make sure her heir would have enough to live when they moved out in the future.

After Bronwyn was born, Ashlee and Johnny had another failed attempt at conceiving before their son Charlie Zest was born. Life was pretty busy with a toddler and a baby for Ashlee. She tried to keep the house running despite everything breaking (toilets, sinks, fridge, etc.) and plan birthday parties which she wasn’t always successful in doing. While she missed her own birthday, she always made sure her children had celebrations.

After Bronwyn was in school and Charlie became a toddler, Ashlee found out she was pregnant on the first try with her second daughter Danielle.
