Meet us!

Hi! We're Tom and Trix! We needed fertility treatments to have our set of twins, and we wanted just one more baby, so we underwent more treatments. But instead of one more baby, we got FOUR! That's TWO sets of MULTIPLES! We have SIX CHILDREN!

Tom: I work as an IT professional.

Tom: When I get home from work, I take care of the children while Trix rests.

Tom: I'm also building a greenhouse so we can feed organic food to our children. Trix keeps me very busy but I've trained myself to survive on three hours of sleep.

Tom: I might sleep better if I weren't so worried about paying our bills.

Trix: I quit my job to become a stay-at-home mom. I love being a mommy!

Trix: I am always EXHAUSTED looking after our children, and cleaning everything in the house at least three times a day.

Trix: Fortunately, we have lots of friends who love us and who help us out a lot. They play with the children, they babysit every Friday, why, they even fold our laundry!

Tom: Tricia is Mommy's helper. She loves to make beds and to play with the babies!

Trix: Tammy is our free spirit. Every day, we pray that she stops playing so much, and helps out around the house. Honestly, those carpets aren't going to vacuum themselves! Would it kill her to cook supper and change diapers and do all the ironing?

Tom: You may remember that in our first TV special, we were driving a used vehicle because that's all we could afford.

Tom: Jim Bob's Cars & Trucks saw how small our car was, and gave us a mini-van! We really appreciate Jim Bob's Cars & Trucks!!!

Trix: And we were in a teeny-tiny house in the last special. I really love this picture of our family with our old house.

Trix: But House Depot built us this new house. We really appreciate House Depot! Although I wish the house was bigger.

Tom: This is all we have time for right now. Join us for next week, when we try to potty train FOUR toddlers at the same time!
Trix: Tracey poops in her underwears!

The line about the "would it kill her to do the (assorted house chores)" cracked me up.

I've never watched the "plus 8" show and would probably stab myself in the face if I had to.

Thanks for making this. I love sims parodies.

(please keep posting to the sims2 comm so I can keep up with this--now I'm off to see if that darn older kid will finally toe the line, selfish kid wanting to be a kid!)

Great!! alsom! WOOW!! I've never do too, but my families there was a lot of kids, my last record was 21th but i don't live my sims because I take a trick that eliminate the necessaries for live. It's a great trick.
