Clone 3 - Chapter 3


Wednesday is the first to wake up.

Grabbing cereal - he's learning slowly!!

Shush big mouth!!  I'm coming as quick as I can!!!

I'm not sure what stinks more - you or that full potty!!

That's Monday potty trained - well done!!
Yes - one less nappy to change!!

Wednesday doesn't look too happy to be sat on that potty!!
He isn't, I've just had a right fight with him
Another one with your boney cheek bones and pout!!
Shut up!!!

Stinky little monsters!!!
That's no way to talk about your kids Marty, and have you smelt yourself!!?? 
I wish I had time to take a shower!!
There is a lot of toxic green smoke coming from those pits of yours!!

He managed to grab a juice after a quick shower while the toddlers are happily playing.

and a quick nap on the sofa .......

... which was short lived as Marty was woken up by a screaming Saturday

A spooky full moon which unnerved most of the toddlers including Marty
Only the two vampire toddlers were not spooked by the full moon.

Monday using the potty all on his own - too cute!!

Tuesday is also now potty trained and he's hanging out with his other potty trained sibling by the potty's - I found this funny!!

I'm exhausted!!!
You only have one more dirty nappy to change and one toddler to put to bed.
I don't think I'm going to make it!!

End of Day Three

All eight sleeping babies again (and he managed it without passing out) - lets hope he can keep this routine going!!!


Wednesday is the first one to start screaming the place down in the morning.

Wednesday is the first to wake me up again!!!
Yes I noticed he doesn't seem to need a lot of sleep, he's not the first to bed but he's the first one to wake.

Juice again?
It's all I have time for
Finally - you get it!!!

While the rest of the toddlers are still sleeping he manages to feed himself and Wednesday and make a start on his potty training.

Maybe if you emptied those potties a little more often you wouldn't have so many puddles to clean up!!!
How many pairs of hands do you think I have??!!

 Thursday and Friday begin their potty training.

Silence - all 7 happily fed and have clean nappies - no crying.

One exhausted and stinky Marty takes the chance to have a soak

but the silence never lasts long - a few of the toddlers have started to get hungry.


(-5) for Marty passing out on the floor

Hurry up before you pass out again and get all those toddlers to bed before they start passing out too!!!
Stop nagging!!!

Marty managed to get all the toddlers to bed and himself without any more passing out - but its virtually the next morning - their body clocks are all out of sink with time.

Abducted by Aliens

Just a little distraction from the toddler challenge.
I can't leave Marty alone for a minute - he is always getting himself into trouble!!!

~ Abducted by Aliens ~

Marty is minding his own business catching fireflies outside the elixir store when he noticed some strange lights coming from out of the sky.

"What on earth is that?!"

Marty tries to run to get away from the beam of light shining down on him

"OMG - help - Its coming to get me"

Up it sucks him into the U.F.O

"This is not going to be good!!"

The next thing he remembers he is stood on the pavement with an "Alien"

"My name is Saphera, I'll be seeing you again soon Marty"
"Not if I can help it you won't!!"

Saphera gets into her space machine and vanishes.

Dazed and sore Marty feels like he has been poked and prodded but can not remember a thing.

Some time later he starts feeling fat - he's suddenly got a lot of unexpected weight gain - which doesn't really make much sense to him when he is continuously working out for his job.

"Maybe I should cut down on eating fish and chips for a while!!"

"Why am I getting so fat??"

Marty feels something moving around in his stomach

"What on earth ........"


mmm now he knows how Justine felt while he sat happily watching TV while she screamed the house down in labour.

"Where did that baby girl come from?  Justine is really not going to like this!!!!"

"What a strange looking baby!!"

Saphera phoned him up, to check on the baby.  Marty can be so thick sometimes!!!

"It's funny you should call me - I've got a green baby here with pointed ears and strange eyes - does it have something to do with you??."

"Are you coming to take this baby away my wife really doesn't like it!!"
"No Marty, you can bring her up, we are trying to populate the world with our kind and you are going to help me"
"OH NO!!! If you think I am having any more alien babies for you, you can think again - it hurt!!!"

Quite cute in an strange ugly kind of way - but then so are all of Marty's offspring.

Justin doesn't seem to mind that he has a strange green half alien sister, but Justine doesn't like the fact that her husband has had a child with another woman!!

Saphera comes again to check on her human/alien offspring.
She has plans for Marty.

And so do I!!


A future Clone challenge will more than likely have something to do with Alien offspring :)

Clone 3 - Chapter 2


I am glad to see you are doing something useful
I am trying to teach Monday to talk but he is just looking at me like I'm mad.
It might be because he doesn't know you yet.

Marty made good use of the 7 toddlers being in a good mood at the start of their first day and learned Monday how to talk.

You know you do have 6 other children here - you haven't left Monday alone yet.
I can't do them all at once so I'm just concentrating on one at a time.
I feel sorry for that kid - he's got your high boney cheek bones and he is going to look just like you when he grows up!!
Are you trying to say I'm ugly?

A lot of the toddlers are working on their toy skills
(I'll total these up at the end or when they have all maxed them both)

You want to watch you don't scramble  her brains.
Do you ever stop nagging?  I'm sick of changing nappies already!!
Well if you potty trained them - you wouldn't have so many nappies to change would you!!
I don't have time with all the feeding and nappy changing
Well you need to find time or these children are not going to grow up very well!!

They are all starting to get hungy Marty
Yes I can hear the noise - I'm not bionic!!

Lots of smelly nappies and hungry toddlers - Marty is running around after them like a mad man.

After the feeding and nappy changing he started to put them all to bed autonomously because everyone is getting tired - especially himself.

OMG!!!  I am so tired I could pass out
Well don't!!

WOW!!!!  I'm impressed you managed to get all 7 to sleep at the same time!!  Not one of them passed out on the floor!!!

You are wasting your time cooking
Well I do need to eat!!!
There are microwave meals and other stuff you can just grab.

It's nice to see you can cook, but you have just wasted 3 hours that you could have used to sleep.

He collapsed on the couch for a nap rather than going to bed.


Sunday is the first one to wake up - Marty has had only 2 hours sleep.

Marty - Don't shout at him!!!
I've had no sleep!!
Well that's your own fault - not his!!  You were the one who wasted sleeping time cooking!!

All of the toddlers are starting to cry to be let out of their cots.

I'm potty training Monday and Tuesday at the same time.
Good you might free up some time to teach some of them to at least talk.

Smelly nappies everywhere again and why does Sunday constantly cry?
I don't know he does seem to be a bit of a grizzly one

I'm not sure I can do this .......

Oh Great!!!!  Marty wake up!!!!! 

(-5) for Marty passing out on the floor.

I need to sleep I'm going to call a baby sitter.
You're wasting your time Marty - they won't turn up!! 

autonomously phoning for a baby sitter - since when have they done that??!!
The baby sitter didnt turn up - they don't come to this island as there is only one house lot and no community lots or other houses here.

Your kids are screaming
They will have to wait I'm starving
You're wasting time again!!!

So you have finally found the coffee machine!!
Yes I need something to help me stay awake.

Time for the feeding nappy changing and putting to bed - all 7 of them are screaming the place down because he ate and drank coffee - I had to let him eat before he starved to death.

Great just Great!!!
Shut up!!!
You've gone and peed your pants like a child!!
Shut up!!!
You Stink!!

(-1) for Marty peeing himself

So you go to bed without taking a shower
I'm too exhausted - Buzz off and let me sleep!!

3am -  seven  - eight sleeping babies - Amazing!!!  Marty is doing a better job than I thought he would!!
