So I went clubbing for Mother’s Day. Don’t judge me. I hadn’t been out since New Years and have always considered drinking lots and dancing poorly (sometimes on the bar) the most fun a girl can have. So when the hubs suggested it Saturday, I was game. Feeling behind the times, I turned to Youtube to learn me the Dougie. It was a pitiful, pitiful sight. Apparently I don’t possess enough rhythm to dance off rhythm? Hubby kept saying, ‘you can’t teach an old dog new dougie’, haha. So after what felt like a strenuous workout, I gave up, took G to the sitter, got sexy-fied, unleashed the hair, and off we went. Still whipping the Mercedes… even valeted that ish. We never valet the Sat, lol.
So here’s a question, why, pray tell, would one think it a good idea to speed up EVERY song? I’m just saying. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Never attempted the Dougie… but I was fresh ;0) The night went on, and after a couple of trips to the bar, and even more trips to the bathroom, I ran into two groups of fierce curlies (a bridal party too!) that recognized me and took some pics that I pray never see the light of day.
Yesterday, on my first Mother’s Day (thanks for the well wishes), I woke up to flowers, cards (even one from Boogie!), chocolates, and bath goodies. I spent the day recovering, watching movies, and unfortunately, finishing up my continuing ed credits for my therapy license. It was a peaceful day, spent with my two favorite people.
This afternoon, after running a bunch of errands, I took Boog to the park for the first time. We were both ready to go after only 20 minutes. Like mother, like daughter. She went from smiling to fussing, and I was ducking and dodging the bees. Check out the view:
rets ta go…
Lol, @ you going to YouTube to learn the Dougie.. I knew i wasn't the only one going to YT to learn dances lol! I can teach you the Dougie though, since I reside in the city where it originated;) Boogie is sooo cute and gotten so big..she reminds me so much of my baby girl whose only 2 mos older. Glad you had a wonderful MD:)
Wow, Gia is one gorgeous baby.
she is getting cuter each day! what a beautiful child
She is so beautifull, cute pictures!
Yeah that tongue pic is too cute!!!
Aw, just too darn cute that lil Boogie is! Memory from the past, I took so many pics of my first born, one day as I was saying Andre smile, he started crying and my mom has a pic of his mouth wide open and mine too trying to get him to hush and smile (like mom, like son)—hahahahaha. He's 29 now. So, I'm just saying! LOL You should write a book, your stories are hilarious!
You are a riot Nik, thanks for sharing and I PRAY the pics surface, lol, I'm sure you looked great.
^^^ you and Gbaby!
Nikki, love the picture with her sticking out her tongue.
Happy Mother's Day!
You guys sure know how to make a girl feel good! The best part about that 'look' is that I found those pants (which I've been wearing frequently, lol) at American Eagle for 13 dollars! They're slouchy skinny and super friggin cute. I got them in all the colors to compliment my new hat obsession… to complete the hippy chic or urban safari look as hubby calls it, lol.
Anyway, thanks a million for the super sweet comments and my heart smiles thinking that one day I can show Gia not only what I have written about her, but what you guys wrote too!
Thank you so much for sharing pics of Baby G with us. I so look forward to them on Friday's, this was a nice surprise.
I know everybody else said, but I'm gonna chime in too…Your daughter is such a cutie! Does she have Dad wrapped her little finger yet? And forgive me, but…I'm waiting for those club pics to surface. 🙂
Baby G is just the cutest! Glad you guys had a good mother's day
Love you Nik! You are too funny and Gia is too cute. Thanks for sharing her with us!
Lol I love when you share stuff like this. Too funny! Glad you had a nice and peaceful Mommy's Day 🙂 Baby G is too too cute!! Aww.
Award for best personality goes to you Nikki! Lol you're too funny!
she is too sweet.
I agree with momo7! You are so effortlessly chic! Gia is adorable! Once she gets a little older, she may like the park a tad more.
Um, girl, I aint have time to read the text yet, but You ARE ONE FIERCE MOMMA!
YOUUU BETTAA WEEEEEEERRRRK!! (RuPaul voice =D)
4 real, I hope I am as fierce as you when I have my baby (one day, lol)!
Aww! Beautiful little girl. Feels like I'm always saying the same thing! I can't help it, sorry!
And a belated Happy Mother's Day. Glad you enjoyed it.
what a beauty…i enjoy seeing pictures of her and watching her grow so nicely :))))
LOL @ "rets to go"…
loving the pics of G Money @ the park!
she is too cute..the last pic look like it could be in a momma vogue magazine!! lol you look fierce
Nikki, you are my homegirl and we've never met. I feel you about the music and your baby is just too adorable. I could pinch her cheeks all day. Hope you come to my town soon, I'd love to do a Meet Up. I stay in Akron.
How … frickin' … adorable … is … SHE?!?!?! OMG Nik, she is just too too gorgeous! Do you ever get tired of hearing/reading that?!? OMG, that smile melts my heart!!
Nik I total get the park thing. The babies are always asking to go outside. Bees, mosquitoes, and other buzzing biting things LOVE me. NO WAY! I don’t get how some curlies put honey and other smells good enough to eat in their hair. I wouldn’t even think about it. I already run to the car like Flo Jo!
Little Gia is growing so fast, soon she will be crawling and walking in no time. She is so photogenic I bet their is a camera around her to catch every moment. Oh by the way did you ever find out if you were pregnant again?, from the other post that you put on here a couple of pages back.

She is such a cutie pie!! And too funny about the pics lol!
Baby G and that tongue are hilarious!
The little one is too cute. Too funny about how the speed up songs. I never notice it until I buy the CD and notice that it sounds a lot slower than what I'm used to. And there's a good chance you're in someone's profile pic haha.
Too funny! You know that pics are gonna end up on Facebook so be prepared to untag yourself. And your little one is too adorable!
