Girls Girls Girls - Run the World

I grew up wishing that I only get baby boys, 4 of them!!! Raising girls always intimidated me, because as a girl, I knew how complicated it was to be one; I always assumed it was easier to be a boy and thus raising a boy would be easier. I also thought it would be cool to be only lady of the house *wink*

When I became pregnant with my son, it was a dream come true, however, this time around, I somehow found myself wishing that I would have a baby girl. Maybe it’s because now that I’m older, I realize that life is what you make of it, whether you are boy or a girl.
Or maybe it’s because I often found myself plaiting his hair, wishing that I could play dress up with him.

I am delighted that this time around, I’ll be having a baby girl. I know that I will be the best mom I can to be to her, as I try to be to my son; however I am scared at how I will handle her tiny little soft hair. 

Black hair seems to be a controversial issue and often becomes a talking point; “natural vs weave vs relaxers” seems to be a popular debate among black ladies…and men. I have recently grown to love my hair, all its texture, limitations and capabilities, but it was not an easy journey so I pray that I will do her little scalp justice and make her grow to love her hair from an early age.

These are my friend's beautiful daughters. I love how she dresses them up, they are always in these organic but very stylish dresses, I also love how she has kept her girl's hair natural, she is truly an inspiration, one of the best mothers I know.


  1. Oh nunus man! They're so beautiful. Congrats on the baby girl.

  2. Thank you very much Nomali. My son looks a lot like daddy, I hope she looks like me :-)

  3. Congrats on the pregnancy girl! :-) The little girls are just too cute! Love their little cute dresses.

    I see your hair is growing out very nicely - love the tinge of colour. Hopefully, we can feature you soon on our blog *wink*

  4. Thanks a lot Nangamso for the hair complement :-) I think the pregnancy hormones have something to do with it ;-)
    As for the feature, I think this might be the best time ;-)

  5. That's great to hear! Look out for my email ;-)
