The Boogie Show!

By January 27th, 202140 Comments

The Boogie Show!
Welcome to State College, PA, where for me, it’s the Boogie Show… all day, all night. We have zero support here– no family, a few acquaintances… no babysitters. Love the kiddo more than anything in the world, but damn, this is intense!

The view from here, like 30 minutes ago:
walking around like Fred Sanford
The Boogie Show!
clutching her chest like Fred Sanford…
(I’ve never shared this one, but from the time she was born, whenever startled, she grabs that heart so fast… priceless)
The Boogie Show!
Daddy’s watch
The Boogie Show!
What watch mama?!
The Boogie Show!
The Boogie Show!
Which is why I had time to put up these pics!

    Nikki. Is there a post where you tell hie you take care of boogies hair? I have a 5 month old daughter and I'm clueless as to what to do with it. Please help! Point me in the right direction….

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thank you guys so much! I can't wait for Boogie to get older so I can show her how much she's loved!!!

    Just cute & adorable…I wish my 14 yr was this age again…well, I might be taking it a little too far! hahahahahahahhahahaha

    And I'm so glad you kept her nickname Boogie, I love it and it fits her little cute self. Enjoy and make sure you you're not afraid to "tighten her up when needed" because it makes a big difference when she grows up and is respectful, polite and a dream to be around…that's what everyone says about my not so-little anymore Boogie!

    Nikki you are making a great sacrifice for the hubster. Time will pass by quickly, and when baby G gets to school, you'll be wishing for times like these. Hopefully you can establish your own support group. Maybe other post-doc wives might be facing similar adjustments that you are as well.

    Praying for a break through!

    Nikki remeMber when u used to ask who she looked like? No doubt about it now, she looks just like u !

    Love pictures of Ms. Gia. I always want to know what she's up to. You should have a weekly post devoted to her "goings on".
    We are new(er) to Pittsburgh and I feel the same way. No support system here.

  • Karizma says:

    I Agree with Kimberly , i love seeing and reading stuff about her , i think shes one of the most prettiest babies ive ever seen loll, her stinky face cracks me up

  • Kimberly says:

    I have a confession…I log on during the day several times to see if you've posted anything about Boogie, LOL!!!! I go back and read the other stuff later. I just LOVE seeing and hearing about her. She is soooooooo cute. Pictures of her just make my day! Keep em' coming. By the way, like my mom says…"Children aren't bad, they're just active"

  • Deia@LoveInTangles says:

    She's adorable! But I know how you feel. we're in Fort Worth, with no family, friends 45 mins-1hr away and no for real babysitters. We're just starting to get some sitters actually after being here for 10 months. Intense ain't even the only word for this! I just joined a MOPS group and it has been great. We're the only blacks but everyone has been great and I've made 1 for real friend. Also, I put my oldest in a Mom's Day Out program where its like 2x/wk for 5 hrs. I hope you find something similar in your area. It helps. 🙂

    SHE is FLIPPING ADORABLE! That is all! 🙂

    wait… one more thing… enjoy it (easier said than done when it is all Boogie all the time), because they grow very VERY fast. It feels like my 17 year old HS Senior was just 1 YESTERDAY… cherish it – enjoy it – treasure it…

  • curllovinmom says:

    She's gorgecous! I'm liking her hair, most definitely will have curls that pop! On a side note, Nikki, you are so blessed to be doing such big things. Who would've ever thought wearing your hair natural would bring you so much(, um wow!) You are an inspiration, truly admire your hard work and dedication. And because of that, you get to be a stay at home (working) Mom, can't get any better than that.

  • Donelle says:

    awwww she's growing up so fast! too cute

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thanks ladies!

    Oh how I wish y'all could really see her in action. My parents used to say, 'oh, she isn't bad… she's just happy', but after keeping her off and on for a week they now know my struggle. She is off the chain! So smart, so spoiled… hilarious and funny but boy can she throw a tantrum.

  • Anonymous says:

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! That is all. LOL! Really, Boogie is so stinkin' cute! Dang it if she doesn't almost make me want to have another kid… Bahaha! Almost.

  • Michelle @Radiant Brown Beauty says:

    Ha! She's so cute and she looks JUST like you. She seems like she's so full of personality too!

Boy you are going to have something on your hand if you don't already, she look like she's going to be 5 steps ahead of you looking like if you say anything to her she knows exactly what you are talking about.

  • hairscapades says:
