The Jungle Cheer would definitely brighten up the kid's room! Thank you SmartSnowball for your kind gesture!
Cadence was ecstatic when she saw this gift of Animals Abound Playground Set. It was one of the latest set from the Sims 3 store and she can't wait to see Mikolaj's kids on these cute outdoor set! It was so kind of SPANETTE to send this gift to the Sierras. Thank you!

"Just let me have some fun before the boredom kicks in and I will be tied down with those irritating screams and cries of those babies!" Mikolaj pleaded with Cadence who rolled her eyes at her daughter's comment.
"You really need to sit down, think hard about your future and how are you going to start your 100 Baby Challenge. You can't just give birth and let the kids suffer with you. You need to have some basic life skills to bring home the bacon. You have to be a responsible mother..." Cadence continued nagging at Mikolaj as she was engrossed with her game.
"Argh! Fine! Stop nagging at me! Will you? Leave me alone! I know what to do!!" Mikolaj was so annoyed that she threw the video game on the floor and walked away, leaving Cadence and Ciento stunned at her sudden outburst.
"Mikolaj! I'm not trying to interfere! But everyone in town is asking me when are you going to start your challenge! Don't disappoint them!" Cadence said in exasperation.
"I can't be bothered with what the rest think, doing the 100 Baby Challenge is what you wanted me to do. I will do it and finish it. That's it, period! I have my life to live, why should I care about what others think of me or my 100 Baby Challenge?" Mikolaj retorted and whined to Cadence.
The mischievious Mikolaj sneaked up on Cadence. She was behaving more like a kid than the mother of an impending 100 Baby Challenge.
"BOOOO!!! MUM!!" Mikolaj's voice bellowed through the living room.
"AH!" Cadence let out a gasp and Mikolaj's eyes glittered cheekily.
"GOTCHA!! Relax mum! Relax! Life isn't all about living to other people's expectations and hopes. Live your dreams and aspirations!" Mikolaj told Cadence who was still reeling in shock.
"And Mum, don't say I'm not serious! I actually glanced through your set of 100 Baby Challenge rules that you left on my table. Though I must say some of those rules were absurd! You must have been so tolerant to do those stuff!" Mikolaj told Cadence.
"Rules are made to be broken? Mikolaj! Rules are meant to be obeyed!" Cadence griped.
"I am the Sierra Heiress, the domestic diva to be! No one is to argue with me. My decision is final." Mikolaj maintained her stance.
"And Mum, you shall be conferred the title of WG which means Wise Granny while I'm the Domestic Diva!" Mikolaj had lots of weird ideas in her little mind and there was nothing that Cadence could do about her stubborn daughter.
"Wow! Time flies.." Cadence whispered softly as she took part in celebrating Baby 100 Ciento Sierra's birthday.
"Whee!! Mum! I'm becoming a young adult!" Ciento said excitedly.
As thoughts of Ciento leaving the house floated in Cadence's mind, tears welled up in her eyes. She could not believe that all her little babies were now all over the world, some in Sunset Valley, some in River View while some settled down in Twinbrook.
"Go! Ciento! Go! Way to go!" Mikolaj cheered her little bro on. Just then, Cadence could not take it anymore and broke down, sobbing. She could not bear to see Ciento leaving the Sierras.
"Cheer up, Mum! Its not like its the end of the world. You will become a Wise Granny soon!" The optimistic Mikolaj consoled the crying Cadence. "You will never understand until you have your own kids...and who knows when you will ever start your 100 Baby Challenge.." Cadence's sad and raspy voice trailed away.
"With Ciento leaving the house, can you start your 100 Baby Challenge proper?" Cadence told Mikolaj who seemed nonchalant about her challenge. "Soon! Soon!" Mikolaj answered Cadence while playing the footsie game. "Stop giving me excuses! Start the challenge proper. How long do you want to drag this? When I set my mind on this challenge, I worked on it immediately." Cadence began nagging at Mikolaj.
"Mum, I don't know how to do the dishes. You will do it! Alright?" Mikolaj tried to push those mundane household chores to her Mum, Cadence. They were discussing about their duties and roles in Mikolaj's 100 Baby Challenge.
"Stop telling me that you can't do this, can't do that. You can do anything as long as you put your mind into it. I can only teach and advise you how to make your 100 baby challenge a great one, I can't do it for you! You will do the dishes. You MUST learn to do the dishes. Its not difficult." Cadence told Mikolaj.
"Whatever!" Mikolaj looked away and pouted.
"Argh! Why? What did I do to "deserve" this challenge? WHY??" Though Mikolaj has accepted that she was the one to take on the 100 Baby Challenge, she still complain and whine about it from time to time.
"You have to ensure that your babies are well-fed..at the correct times. Crying is the only way that they can communicate with you..." Cadence went on and on about the Mummy tales and advices that Mikolaj fell asleep when boredom kicked in.
"I'm listening! I'm listening! But, Mum..Can you just listen to what I have to say too instead of you rattling non-stop?" Mikolaj requested. "Go on..." Cadence said.
If not for Mikolaj, Cadence would not have made up her mind to leave Sunset Valley. It was the town that she met all the fathers of her 100 baby challenge, had all her 100 babies and single-handedly raised all 100 babies. She knew almost every single one in town and leaving this town left her very unsettled.
"Alright! Time to pack up everything and leave!" Cadence tried to suppress her emotions as she took a last look at the house. Cadence knew that the hardest part was to pack up her feelings and move to Bridgeport. Sunset Valley was a place dear to her heart and it was the town where she seeked solace in after her nasty childhood.
"All ready? Mum?" Mikolaj, on the other hand could not contain her happiness and joy. She can't wait to explore Bridgeport. "I'm so going to party crazy over there!" She thought. "Yeah, all ready to move. All the more ready for your first baby!!" Cadence reminded Mikolaj about her 100 Baby Challenge.
"One last look at the house! One last check! Wait for me outside." Cadence looked at the empty house sadly. It was once filled with lots of laughter, joy, happiness and fun. Now, its all empty and hollow. Cadence can't help sighing.
"Mum! Hurry, if not we will miss the plane to Bridgeport!" Mikolaj hurried Cadence. She was so thrilled and excited that she was a little dizzy with delight.
As Cadence took a last peep at the house where she spent most part of her adult life, tears fell. "I can't believe I'm shifting house..and shifting to a brand new town...." Cadence wiped her tears as she embraced the major changes in her life.
Life will never be the same for Cadence and Mikolaj Sierra as they transited into The Sims 3 Late Night.
Founded by Ebenezer Alto at the turn of the century, Bridgeport was once a busy shipping town inhabited by sailors and smugglers. However, when the film industry came to the city, celebrities, Simoleons, and the sparkling lights of fame took over. Now a vibrant city with an energetic night life and bustling club scene, Bridgeport has made its mark on the map.
It was known as the High Tower. It was a drab building painted in grey and fitted with small windows, totally different from what Cadence expected. She was expected sprawling green fields and gardens, huge pools and lovely kids rooms.

"Can't wait to check out the pool and hot tub!" Mikolaj walked briskly into the building. High-rise apartments were fitted with elevators and lift lobbies. It was a different concept from suburban living where one get to see beautifully landscaped gardens before entering the house which were normally bordered by intricate fencing.
"Miko, you did not tell me this is the kind of house that we are shifting to..and what? We have to take an elevator to the house? That's very troublesome..what if your kids get stuck in the elevator?" Cadence followed Mikolaj into the elevator. She was thrown into a different world, an entirely new urban cityscape – “Bridgeport” – complete with high-rise buildings, celebrities around every corner, and a pumping nightlife.
"Hurry, Mum! I'll show you the infinity pool that I was telling you about! You will love it!" Mikolaj told Cadence who stood in front of the elevator. She was slightly afraid to take the lift as she has never ever rode in one before.
"Here goes!" Mikolaj chirped as the Sierras embarked on their new life at Bridgeport.
"Ding!" The elevator sounded as the Sierras reached their apartment.
"See! The infinity pool that I was raving about! Look at the scenery! GOSH! 360 degrees views of the city!" Mikolaj marvelled. "What's that? Its just a small pool in the balcony, what infinity pool?" Cadence wasn't too impressed. "Mum! An infinity pool is swimming pool which produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon or to "infinity"!" Mikolaj explained.
