Nicki was born in Madison and raised just outside of the city on a dairy farm. She met her wonderful husband, Dan, while attending college at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. She obtained her Master's degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology and worked for seven years in Cardiac Rehabilitation. Her claim to fame is that she could help heal hearts. Nicki and Dan became proud parents in September 2012 when their spunky daughter, Elsie, was born. Their sweet baby, Charlotte, was born in May 2016. Following Charlotte's arrival, Nicki and Dan moved to Green Bay so that Dan could take a job transfer and Nicki could become a full-time stay-at-home mom. In her free time, Nicki enjoys attempting pinterest projects (keyword: attempting), trying out new coffee shops, taking her labradoodle for walks, and exploring all Titletown has to offer.

Making a S.M.A.R.T. Resolution

Prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom I worked in a Preventive Cardiology clinic where day in and day out I helped patients set goals to better their own health. The typical method I used when helping people set goals was to make a S.M.A.R.T goal. To explain this further, here is the product of taking my resolution and making it into a S.M.A.R.T. goal:

There are so many it(s) that I have left to experience.  I'm sure I will find the right time to use the phrase "life's not fair" and I will understand why grand kids are better than my own kids.  But until then, if you see a cartoon-like light bulb above my head, don't worry.  It's just me getting it.

My Stay-At-Home Mom Commandments

It's been six months since I worked outside the home.  In many ways it feels like just yesterday that I was pulling into work.  In other ways, it feels as though I haven't worked for years.  I am, by-no-means, an expert at being a stay-at-home mom.  But, the following are some commandments that I am vowing to keep to make myself feel fulfilled and to make this the best experience for my girls.

Winning the Fruit and Vegetable Battle

"Eat your broccoli... eat your peppers... eat your banana..."  The struggle to get kids to eat their fruits and vegetables (F & V) is constant.  We recently asked our pediatrician to get in the battle, asking him to very clearly point out how important fruits and vegetables are to eat.  While his recommendation helped, ultimately it is still up to me and my husband to get our four year old, Elsie, to eat well.  So, I have enlisted some of my favorite kitchen gadgets to make F & V more appealing.

I love story time.  Story time was one of first activities I brought my girls to when I became a stay-at-home-mom.  I have only had the opportunity to attend the story time at the Weyers Hilliard Library in Howard. But, there are many different story times offered throughout the Brown County Library System.
