    Hola everyone! I have never posted on this blog and I know this post is super old but I had to speak up a little. I was just shell shocked by how some of posts were so negative and judgemental. People just amaze me how they take on this "holier than thou" attitude as if they have never done anything that might be shunned by others.

    Like many of the woman have said, this would be no different than having children accompany a gathering at home and going to dinner and having a drink. My parents were never "hush, hush" about alcohol and because of that, I never had the urge to sneak around and drink. Or really drink for that matter (And I'm 27 years old). Curiosity of the unknown sparks action.

    My friends who grew up with parents who acted the opposite (as if alcohol were so bad and shielded them from it) of my parents are the ones who drink so much they get sick and pass out, can't remember where their night ended, and could drink everyday if you let them. And I put that statement on anything!

    I don't think any caption was needed, as you don't have to explain yourself to ANYONE. Keep living and enjoying your fabulous life. Those that have something to say can kick rocks πŸ˜‰

    Be careful Nikki (I love how I can just assume we're on a first name basis lol) , you don't want this to get posted somewhere else and taken out of context. Maybe right-click disable it to be safe.

    So needed this pic. today. LMAO. LET IT ROLL, LET IT FLOW. One day Mz. Thing will cherish this picture!

    Awww, sorry Nikki about the negative responses, but this is the internet, so you KNOW not everyone is going to agree.

    However, I thought "this is sooo something I would do" lol. Gia is a doll and a perfect mix of you and the hubby.

    Love this photo! Adorable and funny at the same time.

    People, you have to ignore hysterical spam for it to stop.

  • Natural_fienD says:

    Nikki- No judgment! At least Gia was not waken from a restful sleep and requested to dance for you and the crew. LOL …

    These people are so full of it! I love how relatable you are. These women throw stones at you while they leaves their kids every chance they get, have tons of men in and out of their lives, and are just all around bad moms.

    So what of you had a shot! Thank you for giving us a look into your life. I find your blog refreshing on so many levels.

    I love that she posted this photo. There's so many double standards out there for moms vs. dads, it's ridiculous. How many of you have ever visited a sports bar and witnessed fathers knocking back a few brewskis while watching a game as their kids play somewhere nearby? There is nothing inherently immoral about drinking. She's a new mom. She's enjoying some time with friends. I hate this attitude in American society like moms really are supposed to completely give up everything fun in their lives and become some soulless automaton whose only purpose for existing is taking care of family and house. The same isn't expected of fathers! I mean seriously y'all… let's say there's NO drinking in the above photo. Now what's wrong about it? Nothing, right? A woman and her friends with her daughter. But insert alcohol (like Gia REALLY knows/cares/is affected by that) and all of a sudden, it's a travesty. GTFOHWTBS.

    Anon @1:00 p.m.

    I didn't say I don't care for the debate. It's all about how you approach it. Calling someone retarded (which is offensive by the way), jealous, etc., is childish. Besides, I appreciate your participation in proving my point.

    As a mom, I'm glad Nikki got out and had a breather. No harm, no foul! But, the way some individuals approached the situation was crass and juvenile.

  • SwirlieCurlies says:

    @CN 8:45 <— this is why iLike Nikki. She keeps it real. &To an extent her life is an open book for us all to see.

  • Nia/ Chic Working Moms says:

    Love!!! AS I always say "Momma Gotta Have a Life too". LOL

  • Anonymous says:

    Like Nikki said "this comes with the territory"! She understood a long time ago that if she opened up her life up to the public; she would get GOOD AND BAD COMMENTS!

    So everyone just keep doing what cha doing. Stating your opinions…whether some think there negative or positive. This is what the site was created for to STATE YOUR OPINIONS.

    Nikki understands this…she is a business women! Yal keep her site going. No pun intended!

  • Anonymous says:

    @honeybrown1976 …so what you don't care for the debate on either side! …that is why the comments section is here – for comments. If you don't like it "how about you don't use the Internet."

  • Anonymous says:

    I totally agree with you honeybrown1976! People will have different opinions…no two individuals will always agree on the same things.

    Some may think it's ok that Nikkie takes Boogi with her where drinks are being served as long as the enviroment is safe. But some may not agree with bringing their children in those environment and that cool too. I don't think their is a RIGHT or WRONG in this situation just a difference of opinion.

    EVERYONE IS ENTITLE TO THEIR OPINION! And besides give Nikki a little more credit. She is a BIG GIRL that can fight her own battles. I don't think that she got this far because yal came to her defense every time some one disagreed with something she said or did.

    She responded and kept it moving; she's not trippin either way! So why are yal! Lol

  • Anonymous says:

    oops I meant to say Boogi…not googi! lol

  • honeybrown1976 says:

    Wow.

    All of you need to grow up.

    This is an open forum where everyone is entitled to their opinions without being called retarded (Really? People still use that word!) or other ugly words. Get a grip. If you don't care for difference of opinion on either side, don't use the Internet. Stop acting like children.

  • Anonymous says:

    ok here is my 2 pence…WE ALL LOVE NIKKI! I happen to think based on what I've seen on here site that Nikki is a mom who love's her child and would NEVER put her child in harms way! WE ALL KNOW DAMN WELL THAT NIKKI IS RESPONSIBLE AND AINT GONNA LET NOTHING HAPPEN THIS THAT MINNI ME OF HERS. But like she said SHE ISN'T PERFECT! and nither of us is either!!!

    So yes she demonstrated here in this picture that she is human and she pushed the envelope with this pic. So what! It happens to all of us at one point or another. Let's give her a pass on this one. Now going foward if we see Nikki kicking up her heels with little googi front and center…like the late Berny Mack said…it's gonna be a MISUNDERSTANDIN! lol

  • KC says:

    Heh, I'll drink to that too!

    I think some people might be just jealous that they didn't get into the event. Hmm? I didn't go either but I'm not salty. πŸ™‚

    It bothers me when people who have no kids or no life have opinions on how others should raise their kids or live their lives.

  • Anonymous says:

    Wow. Folks got some serious hang-ups…lol!

    When my oldest son was a baby, we had no family locally and few babysitting offers from friends, so we took him everywhere…except "da club". He was with us at a very upscale restaurant when we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary…I had to confirm the spot had high chairs when I made our reservation. We took him to book club meetings, dinner parties and weddings, always checking with the host/hostess or bride/groom first. He's always been chill and well-behaved so he never wore out his welcome. Also, my hubby works in entertainment marketing, so our son went to his first of many big-venue concerts at 4 months…I always had earplugs for him. (BTW he is now almost 14 and a talented musician.) Thankfully when he was 2 1/2, we found a great babysitter so we were able to leave him at home, although we continued to take him to concerts often.

    Bottom line…it is important for parents (esp. moms!) to have adult social interaction. As long as the environment is safe, there's nothing wrong with bringing baby along sometimes, especially if you don't have someone you trust to take care of him/her.

    Amen, tell 'em Curly Nikki. I don't blame you for not leaving your baby with some strange babysitter. Your child belongs with you, her dad, and her grandmother right there at the event! You grown and you know how to handle your business with your child and your event. Tell 'em gurl!!! and keep right on "doing you."

  • scswild says:

    I normally wouldn't post but ummm….as a mother of two, you have to make your fun when you can. Getting plastered and can't walk is one thing….having a drinky drink or two or three (dontjudgeme) and being ok is called survival! Stop judging and raise your children your way…@curlynikki…I''ll drink to that and keep enjoying yourself!

  • JE says:

    As someone who was at the event the negative comments are not at all what I experienced.

    Firstly, surrounded by hundreds of eager fans who wanted to chat and take pictures for more than 3 hours… I was impressed by Nikki's graciousness and kindness. Many acquire an air when given that amount of attention, but it is clear that Nikki is not only sweet but very grounded. We waited an hour or so for a line to clear but folks kept on coming so we finally scooted up. I felt badly asking for a picture assuming she'd be tired and so over it…but she smiled, said sure!, complimented my hair, took a picture, gave us a big hug and proceeded to chat with those of us around her for a bit as if she'd known us for years.

    It was nice to see Nikki tending to her guests, as if she were in a room with 20 rather than a few hundred but also that it was a family affair which I think speaks to her values in the most positive way. It was a safe space and Boogie was taken good care of by family members including her hubby which was very sweet to see. As a participant, although there were hundreds of people, I felt that I had a more of intimate experience than I anticipated and had a great time.

    Nikki I applaud you for balancing your life in a way that seemingly does justice to your various obligations. This is what many of working Moms strive to achieve. The spirit of your event was beautiful and left me feeling positive about our community and myself. There was a lot of love and affirmation in that room (as well as drinks, big deal!) and you bought it all together. Cheers!

    I don't have kids nor do I drink but it does bother me when I see kids running around with open glasses of liquor because they might grab one off the table and take a sip thinking it was juice or water. Knowing there was a responsible person watching I see she wasn't in any trouble.

    Not really related, but… the other day I was shopping for bras at Victoria's Secret. I'm a 36DDD and finding cute bras are very hard. So anyway, VS does not carry DDD bras, but they suggested I try on a 38DD to see if it would work (it didn't). Anyway back in the dressing area there was a mother trying things on and she had her son waiting outside for her. I thought it was odd that she had her son there (he looked to be about 8-10). I expressed this to a friend and she didn't see the problem…different folks…different strokes!

  • Jess says:

    I don't understand why this got sooooo many post! So I had to post about how selfrightous some of these comments are. Like many of you said, what is the difference between this picture and a family BBQ, Thanksgiving dinner, etc. People who are this hellbent over the issue usually have some embedded issues about an alcholic in their family or are one themselves….Lighten up, and maybe you need to take your tight ass to a party and have a drink!

  • Pecancurls says:

    Do you Nik! I have had a glass of wine at a social function (dinner party, holiday party,birthday party etc) with the kids around. It was all responsible. No one was sloppy drunk.

  • Anonymous says:

    With nikki's explanation or if you were there, you know the baby was fine. But you have to admit the picture itself (without knowing anything else) looks bad. Anyway, you guys look cute, glad it was fun.

  • fabwtalk says:

    LMAO! I love this photo and boogie is looking like, "Hello I'm here, mommy stop playing." LOL, although I have no babies yet that pic alone makes me look forward to motherhood, love it!

    Ugh!!! I cant stand the Mom Patrol (group of self righteous women who suck the absolute fun out of life). Relax ppl. It's no different than you having a glass of wine at home while ur children are around. My fave pic of my nephew and I shows me with baby in one hand and Bud Light in the other. He's 21 now and has that pic up in his dorm room. The baby was fine and well taken care of.

    Ha the photo is so funny!

    Also I see that bag that you have made me fall in love with and now that I have learned that I am pregnant after loss I want to splurge on that darn bag. lol

    Curlynikki you are drop dead gorgeous! and very inspirational!!! We love you!!!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    OMG! What a lively debate I've woken up to!

    Let's see… Boog comes to every event that is not 21 and up. My aunty/her godmother comes to every city to help me care for her. During the events, I'm way to busy to tend to her, so Aunty (and sometimes hubby) watches her until I'm done taking pics and such. This pic captures me toward the end of the event… sitting my ass down cause although the shoes were dope they were killer!

    I NEVER drive home from these events because I do usually have more than 1 drink, plus, I strategically stay where I party… my hotel was 11 stories up in the same building. I've always been presented with the option to have some strange babysitter come and keep Boog. No hell. I'd much prefer to have her in the vicinity.

    At any rate, this comes with the territory. Opening up my life and sharing so freely about my family and personal decisions breeds unwarranted advice, judgement and the like. But it's good! I'm not perfect and I will make mistakes, but in this case, Boog was perfectly safe and had a blast… and so did Mommy πŸ˜€

  • Anonymous says:

    I'm split. On the one hand, I understand that there's nothing wrong with a parent enjoying themselves with children around, those that attended the event have noted that there was no excess drinking involved and that Gia was safe HOWEVER this is a pretty popular site and the photo itself w/o any background information posted just sends a poor message. Anyone who reads the blog knows that Nikkis is a responsible mom and loves her daughter to death but once again this photo only tells half of a story and can be taken anyway based on the person behind the computer screen. #justsayin

  • Anonymous says:

    I just had to comment on this.

    A lot of the people who are trippin' over this picture are projecting their own issues big time. Now don't get me wrong, I am well aware that our life experiences shape OUR future actions, it's only natural. But don't be so quick to pass judgment on others.

  • Anonymous says:

    Quite honestly, as long as it was not in a bar, I really do not see the big deal. Is there a real difference between this and if she and her husband were out having dinner and they each had a drink while Gia sat at the table with them? No. I probably would not have posted the photo on the net for the world to see though. Just my 2 cents.

  • Anonymous says:

    I think the point of sharing this is that she's human. Fin.

  • Anonymous says:

    For pete's sake it is not as if she is an alcoholic. She is at a social event. I don't see her giving her child any alcoholic drink or was there anyone acting outrageous! Chill folks!

    I love this blog but this picture, I don't like. IMO, it creates an impression of irresponsible parenting. Maybe it has to do with the fact that i've seen what alcohol can do to destroy people's lives and I just hate when people celebrate it so much….I remember attending family re-unions back when I was younger and watching my aunts and uncles taking alcohol. I hated the entire atmosphere and knew from back then that alcohol was not for me. So Nikki, am sure you are a good mum, but IMO,keep the baby out of this…just my thoughts

    Ummmmm, I didn't think the picture was funny nor cute but I do believe Nikki is a good mother and Boogie was safe at all times. IMO, It just doesn't look right.

  • Angelina says:

    Is it just me? Because whatever Nikki is drinking looks like water.

    I'm pretty sure Gia was fine and Nikki wouldn't have posted this picture if it were "questionable" as to Gia's safety at the event while she was having a couple of adult beverages.

    So, simma down now!

    People can be so retarded sometimes.,,smh…who are you to say what's appropriate with your more-than-likely inappropriate asses? I hope CurlyNikki responds appropriately and let you know in a professional manner that drinking is LEGAL…and so is allowing your child to tag along with you. At least she didn't leave her child with some bum babysitter to go clubbing. If you notice the caption says…Momma Misbehaving. She knows what her role is as a mother. Get a life…

    It is really not that serious. The baby does not know what they're drinking. Would you keep your baby from around your relatives who were playing cards on Thanksgiving? It's a party. All the baby knows is that it's a party. Ain't no nigger up in there whuppin nobody's azz. It's a bunch of women dishing.

  • Anonymous says:

    I have a certain admiration for parents who take their children with them no matter where they go! Curly Nikki – I think your daughter is going to be very well adjusted and a social butterfly.

    Don't concern yourself with the negative comments. Gia is your baby and you can take her where ever you want. My girlfriend took her baby every where she went when he was young and he is a happy well adjusted fourteen year old. Also, when I was a child my aunt took me and my sister every where she went and it did not impact me or my sister in a negative way.

    Like I always say, "Do you."

  • Anonymous says:

    @ Anon 10:39: You can "wonder" anything that you want, but in this county people,including Nikki, are still innocent until proven guilty.

    Why are a few people acting like Nikki gave the drink to Baby G? Nikki has the right to enjoy her life and Baby G should see her do it so that she will know what normal looks like!

  • sblazer227 says:

    Wow, I guess ppl dont have enough to do raising their own kids but now they want to raise someone elses. I have been reading this blog for a long time and nikki has always come across as a responsible woman with her ish together. So what if shes having a single shot with a bunch of ladies and happens to have her child there. Like no one has had a house party with friends and family and alcohol for the adults. I also believe that she was surrounded by enough grown sistahs who would have said something if they saw something going wrong. Dont push that public figure ish on her and suddenly ppl want to hold her to standards they dont themselves pass.
    I will add that i come from a country where the drinking age is lower and adults arent so concerned with alcohol and in turn their children dont see it as taboo that they should try to sneak.

  • Anonymous says:

    Really people?! You're acting as if people should stop living when they have kids. There are parents out there doing much worse. It's just not that serious. That baby is fine. If she wants to drink than so be it. It's not your child to be worrying about.

  • Anonymous says:

    I was really surprised to see this pic posted on the internet. Since most of us were not there and don't know the circumstances, all we see is a mother, a baby, and alcohol consumption. And we wonder: did she have more than one drink? was she driving? does she do this often? Nikki you are a public figure now and you have an image to uphold. You a mother, a wife, and businesswoman. Please be more responsible.

    I love this website! All the hair advice that I receive is amazing! I'm not a fan of this picture though. There are 5 different drink glasses around that baby. Everybody deserves to have a lil fun, but some things are just not appropriate when there's a child present.

    It's interesting to me that the individuals that don't think this pic is "appropriate" are also choosing to remain "anonymous". Just an observation πŸ™‚

  • ceceUNedited says:

    Trust me.. I was at this gathering and Gia was safer there then her mom and dad having her in some other area that they aren't as familiar with. Its New York City… it IS unsafe if you are not familiar with the area as residents are.

    Besides, Gia was well taken care of the entire party I saw her a few times and as long as she wasn't unhappy (crying) then she's fine. I didn't hear her cry once in the hour or 2 that I was there.

    It was so great meeting you Nikki! I was the fellow tar heel u met also wearing the red jeans lol!

    Hope you come back and visit us again soon!

    Ok as much as love your site I must say I'm all for mommy getting her drink on but this is sooo not a cool pic. And what's even worse is that a majority of the people posting seem to think this is a "precious" picture…sorry Nikki not a cute mommy moment.

  • keisha says:

    LOL! Gia like..um ok u bout to get it…

  • L says:

    Since Gia's conception this blog has detailed her life and the musings of a first time mom. She is a part of the blog as well, which may weigh into Nikki's decision to bring her. How is it any different than having dinner with a few drinks and/or a few glasses of wine with the kids present?

    To each their own as to how they raise their kids. Do you boo!!!

    I agree with anon at 9:32. Its not the worst thing in the world, but still not exactly appropriate for a kid to be there.
