We are excited to introduce you to our September Mom of the Month, Nikki Larson!
Nikki was nominated by Heather Grose, and this is what she had to say about her.
I look up to Nikki. She trained me when I was a brand new nurse at St. Anthony’s downtown. She has a blended family and a husband that was diagnosed with cancer not too long ago. All the while she was cooking, cleaning, and taking care of her older children as well as her newest baby. They have been through surgery after surgery, and yet she still wakes up daily with a smile on her face. She is a wonderful role model. Takes care of everyone, no matter what she is going through. She is an extraordinary woman. She decided to quit her job as an ER nurse to stay home with her baby and help her husband to heal. She is definitely supermom and one of my best friends.
Let’s get to know Nikki!
How many children do you have, and what are their names and ages?
Charlie, 14 months
What is your favorite thing about being a mom?
Watching each of my children develop a unique sense of self, style and independence. Every year they are changing and growing into amazing humans.
What is the most challenging thing about being a mom?
Blending two families is so challenging. Making sure everyone gets enough of each parents time and attention can be a logistical nightmare. We work on the quality of time, not the quantity.
What could you not survive without as a mom?
A large bag and my Tula! I need to be able to carry supplies for a small army & any emergency that may pop up!
What is your proudest mom moment?
When my children stick up for themselves and their siblings. Raising them to overcome any obstacle and to be proud of themselves is our greatest gift!
Nikki, we recognize you as being an amazing mom! We hope you enjoyed your goodies from Whole Foods Market Oklahoma City! Congrats on being our September Mom of the Month!
