Kids and the Recession
Posted by Niecy on April 3rd, 2009 under The Blog

My kids are crazy! Every last one of em’! I love them like nobody’s business but they definitely get on my nerves! We have been having fun during these tough economic times. On Monday night we had a talent show. If you are at my house when its talent show time , then you need to figure out your talent because you are going to perform! My mom and dad were over and so was my good friend Jill Scott, baby we got it in! My son and older daughter sang, the baby girl performed a magic act, Jill did a rap, my parents added their two cents and I gave the crowd some poetry. Of course we used a paper towel holder as a microphone! We had big fun and spent no money, honey. Sometimes without warning I will announce that we are having a pajama party. Everyone is given 20 minutes to get their pj’s on and gather around for a movie or board game. The kids love it! Its cheap, easy, and fun….I guess I love it too!!!

    Things we used to do as kids outselves seem new and fresh now! Movie nights, sing-alongs, talent shows and pajama parties! All great fun, and thumbs up to you for being “hip” enough to know they are timeless too!

    I love how you LOVE your family. They are beautiful, like mama! :-) Your perspective on the recession is refreshing. We should have all been doing free family things like this years ago!!

    Sounds like fun. I have two small children (one 3 years and one 3 months) and in the future we will be looking for inexpensive fun. So here is to hoping my kids end up with some talent or it could end up a very painful experience.
    I love you Niecy and everyone laughs when I start talking about their mayhem and foolishness. Thanks for the new vocabulary.

    You have such a beautiful family. And I love the talent show idea, sounds like fun.

    Your son is super cute, and your daughters are spitting images of you!

  • Busybrowngirl Said on April 5th, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    Ms. Niecy! My mother and I love your show. I moved to NYC in 2007 without the Style channel! :( My cable company just added it this weekend and I’m so excited! So is my mother so we can continue to bond over it.

    I must know, Ms. Niecy, who dresses you for Clean House? You have the best dresses (I’m specifically thinking of the blue number from the reveal on the episode with the Childress family). I am a dress fanatic, can you share who you’re wearing?

  • Anne Marie Said on April 5th, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    Well Miss Niecy! What a beautiful family photo. You are an inspiration to me and my family – we look forward to your straight talk on new Clean House episodes soon! Keep up the straight talk! We all need it!

  • Rachel in NC Said on April 10th, 2009 at 1:00 am

    I cannot get over how your babies have grown up! Wow. They’re great! Bless their little ole hearts! Middle child used to crack up when I said that! I miss them! You take care Miss Niecy!

    niecy you are great on clean house, keep letting God use you to help people get set free. Ministry is in you girl!!! (like u dont already know)

  • Dawn Said on April 14th, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    Ms. Nash,
    Just wanted you to know that my children and I love Clean House. They get so excited watching you all tell people to clean up. They have even made a “Clean House” game! When I tell them to clean their room, they go through and pretend they are choosing items for the garage sale. They even pretend that some of their stuffed animals are crying over the stuff that is going to be sold. I love how your show is a visual reminder to my kids about the importance of cleanliness. I don’t have any clutter and not too much foolishness, but I sure wish Mr. Brunetz could help me design a better living room! Just wanted to say, “Howdy” from Erie, Colorado! Keep up the good work!

  • Brian C Said on April 15th, 2009 at 6:57 am

    Very nice way to spend time together as a family. That is a great photo, you have a beautiful family.

  • Aja Said on April 20th, 2009 at 1:39 am

    I am so glad that even with all of your success on the big screen you find time to be with the ones that matter the most…your children. They will remember and appreciate that for the rest of their lives. Believe me. I’m 20yrs old now(21 on 4-27-09) I grew up in multiple foster homes until I gave up and decided to venture out on my owm. I always wanted to be able to spend time with my mom and I’m glad that your children are not missing out like I have.

  • Tisha Said on April 26th, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    You have such a beautiful family. It’s important to stress family time recession or not. I love have talent shows at my house as well. Another good idea is karaoke night. It’s hilarious and I love when my family is having fun. Keep up the great job that you do in your career and with your family.

  • Dale Said on May 18th, 2009 at 9:03 am
