Darius and Nikki Starting Their Day (Photostory)

It's a typical Saturday morning and Nikki has a full day planned.  She and Darius are entertaining friends later.

Nikki calls out to Darius who is still in the bedroom.
"Honey, how about oatmeal for breakfast?"  (Nikki)

"What are you doing?"  (Darius)

"I'm cooking breakfast.  I'll fix you something else, if you don't want oatmeal."  (Nikki)

"But we were in the middle of a conversation and you just left."  (Darius)
"Honey, I don't know why every time you talk to, or see your sister, I have to hear the 'don't you want to have a baby speech'.  I just wasn't up for it this morning." (Nikki)

"I'm sorry.  I'm not trying to pressure you or anything.  It's just been on my mind." (Darius)
"It's only on your mind because you are so darn competitive and now that your sister is going to have a family, you want a family.  A baby is forever.  Once it's here, it's here to stay."  (Nikki)

Darius can see Nikki is getting a little upset.  He walks over and takes her in his arms. 

"I don't understand why this makes you so upset.  Would having my baby be so horrible?"  (Darius)
Darius pulls her a little closer

"It's not that.  I just want it to be a decision we make together and not just because someone else is having a baby."  (Nikki)
"What do you say we continue this conversation in the bedroom?" (Darius)
"But the oatmeal..."  (Nikki)

LATER that morning....
Nikki is getting her shopping list together for the gathering later.

Darius enters the kitchen, dressed and ready to go.

"Okay, I'm headed to the barbershop and then I'm going to stop by the office for a minute."  (Darius)

"Can you pick up a nice bottle of wine for tonight?"  (Nikki)

"Sure." (Darius)
"Please don't be late."  (Nikki)

NEXT EPISODE...  Darius at the barbershop
Jason owns the local barbershop, "In The Cut". 

I still have to do some work on his shop.  I threw this dio together after getting the cool barbershop chair this week.  It is the Sweeney Todd chair that can be found on ebay and action figure sites.  I bought mine at Monkey Depot.  It also comes with a cool spooky backdrop that I will probably use at the Halloween party.

  2. Nikki and Darius are a supercool couple! I like the way Darius is dressed, really stylish! The barbershop looks like some of the barber shops that are in my town.

    ps: the girls have arrived today! Thank you :)

    1. Sergio - I somehow have a hard time picturing Darius as a dad, but I'm sure if it happens he will excel at it. He has excelled at every thing.

      Yay! Glad the girls arrived safely. Happy playing.

  3. Love your barbershop! Like I walked into one from the street ;-D

    Go girl, Nikki. Don't be pressured into having a baby before you are ready.

    Sigh ... ah Monkey Depot. I remember it from the old days, lol.

    1. D7ana - Thanks. I got a good feeling when I put it together. That's the first time I opened a box, and immediately built the dio. I was so pleased with that chair. there are a couple more parts to it, but for now the chair is enough.

  4. Well I think my crush on Darius is finally over. I loved him in his underwear. Loved when he got his clothes on. Looked at him up and down - SCREEEEECH. I hate those shoes. Thank goodness he wasn't wearing white socks or CROCS. I would have falen out of my chair. And so the love affair ends. That's how I'd fall out of love back in the day. Once day something would be off and I'd be on to the next crush. Where's the man with the dreads that I conjured up?

    1. Kenya - You are so fickle. Those are his house shoes. He has them on even when he had the boxers on. Most of the men I know don't walk around the house barefooted. They always have on slippers. I figured Darius would definitely be a slipper type guy. His outside shoes are probably neatly sitting somewhere with a shoe horn in it. LOL!

    2. Oh I thought he was leaving the house with them on. He said he was getting ready to leave. Whew. Okay, I hope his sneakers are by the door.

      Girl I saw a whole family in Walmart last weekend with those pajamas on that everybody knows are pajamas but people wear them out like its cool. The dad had on those slip on with red socks!

  5. poor Nikki, why Darius must be so pushy and can't simply understand no means no... I have to say I like him the less from whole Morristown, hate men who are treating women like a walking uterus >.>

    barbershop looks so great! can I ask where did you get this red chair from ?

    1. jewel snake - I don't believe Nikki is opposed to having a baby. She just wants to have it for the right reasons. If they can't get on the same page about this topic, it would be best for them to go their separate ways. It's something they definitely need to figure out before they get married. In Darius' defense, he really loves Nikki and treats her really well. This is just something new. Maybe he feels he's getting older and he's realizing that there's more to life than just business.

      That red chair was purchased from Hobby Lobby about 8 yrs ago. It used to have a photosleeve on the seat.

  6. Nikki is right... having a baby is a serious decision, that cannot be taken lightly, Darius should understand that. And once said this, I just can add...OH MY, OH MY!!! I really want a Darius in my life!!!!

    1. Rossetti - I would have his baby any day. LOL! I hope they can work their way through this issue. It's normal for couples to have impasses. It's how they deal with them that really counts. This will be another test of their relationship. Let's see how they handle it.

  7. I pretty much associate the words "barber shop" with Sweeney Todd, so I was already thinking that before I saw it was a Sweeney Todd chair. And that basically made the chair a thousand times more awesome.

    Hopefully they can come to an agreement on whether they're truly ready to start a family or not.

    1. Alura - I didn't know anything about Sweeney Todd before I saw this chair. Still don't. I haven't taken the time to look it up, yet.

      Kendra may have started something over here. I hope the ladies in Morristown don't get baby fever. That happens often in real life.

  8. Ah Darius. Chill with the whole baby thing! You already had to face through the Halle thing. Gaah...

    1. Verona - lol! He's such a go-getter. Once he puts his mind on something, he's like a bulldog. May work well for business. Not so much for personal life.

    1. Georgia Girl - I like them, too. I'm with Darius. More of our high-powered, go-getter, AA couples need to procreate. LOL! Darius is probably going about this all wrong. I'd been thinking about that chair for a long time. Didn't want to pay what they were asking. Had to get it when I saw it on sale. So glad I did. I love the thought of a barbershop. Thanks.

  11. Love the barbershop! I would never even have thought of making a barbershop diorama.

    1. limbe dolls - Thanks! With all the handsome men around here, I thought of one a long time ago. Glad to see it's finally been opened. My first hairdresser was actually a barber who did ladies hair, too. So I have fond memories of the barbershop.

    1. Marta - Sexy man walking around in very little clothes, is always a plus in my book. I'm glad you approve.

  14. I hope they have a baby, but not now. Darius is very competitive from what I can see. After his sister has her baby, he'll probably forget all about needing to have a baby. Hopefully he doesn't get Nicky too stressed out over the baby.

    1. sisilovessinging - I agree. Darius' timing on this baby is off. He needs to chill a bit and really make sure he's doing it for the right reason.

  15. I love this couple, I love Nikki, I love this particular story. This was the exact situation I was in and even though it didn't workout, wouldn't change having my lil' stinkers. Still, Nikki is right...once they're here, it's a wrap! Gotta change and step your game up. And sleep...forgetaboutit. ;)

    Can't wait to see more about Nikki & Darius. Oh, how's Halle and Diego? Has Naisha found a man yet?

    1. Tracy - It's so funny, I wasn't planning to talk about the baby issue. But somehow that is the dialogue that popped up. I figured someone out there needed to hear this story. It's so important for couples to be on the same page when it comes to having kids, otherwise the relationship has little chance of surviving. It was ultimately the thing that broke up my marriage, but it was a case of one of us, (not me), changing our minds. Me and the ex can laugh about it today.

      Halle and Diego are doing well. She's been traveling a lot with her job, though. I'm not sure what's going on with Naisha. She's been sneaking around and being very secretive. I imagine there's a man somewhere, but I haven't seen him.

  16. Did I miss an episode? Are they married now? Is he trying to have a baby and they just live together? LOL, I sound so puritan.

    1. Hey Muff, we missed you! Where you been?

      Darius ain't no fool! If he knows what I know, he better make sure she is willing to have that baby before he walks down some aisle with her. Otherwise they will most likely be another divorce statistic. I do think Nikki is thinking like you are thinking. Hopefully they will come to some understanding/compromise.
