“The family is one of nature’s masterpieces.”
I Predicted a Winner!
Back in November 2013, I wrote a blog post about Johnson & Johnson’s La Familia de Hoy ™ (Today’s Family) competition. I had the opportunity to choose my favorite contestant family to win the title of 2014 Healthy Essentials’ La Familia de Hoy ™. I chose well, because the family that I picked as my fave won!
In December 2013, Johnson & Johnson revealed the Jiménez family (Juan, Biviana and their 3 children: Elisa, Diego and Benicio) as 2014’s La Familia de Hoy ™. Some notable qualities about this family that made them a great example of today’s family is that they are multi-cultural and possess a strong commitment to passing traditional values down to future generations.
We Have Something in Common
These attributes that the Jiménez family possesses are ones that speak to me, because my own family shares them. Although we are primarily Hispanic, my kids and I are also Irish, leading to a blending of skin colors, traditions and histories. We are committed to raising our kids right so that the traditional values that we grew up with will be continued with our kids and their kids.
Just as the Jiménez family shares a special bond and are constantly looking out for each other, our family does the same. As more time passes, you realize that truly family matters most.
Take Good Care of Those Who Matter Most
Part of being a family is taking care of each other. As a wife and mother, I take care of my family members in many practical ways. Sometimes something as simple as cooking a meal or going to the store to get an item that someone needs is an outward expression of my love.
With Johnson & Johnson’s Healthy Essentials, it’s easy to take good care of those you love. When my children were babies, it was vital to have gentle products, like Johnson’s® Baby No More Tangles® to take care of their hair with or Infants’ Tylenol to relieve pain or bring down fever safely and efficiently.
Now that my kids are older, I am able to take care of them when they get hurt, whether they get a cut and need to prevent infections by using Neosporin Original Ointment or they experience muscle pain which can be eased by Bengay®.
Another way that I show love for my family is by caring for their health now and in the future. Healthy teeth and gums are vital for overall good health and appearance, so I like to make sure that my family is taking excellent care of their mouth by making the right products available.
Listerine® Antiseptic makes it simple to maintain teeth and gums by cleaning 75% of your mouth that brushing misses. For over 100 years, Listerine® Antiseptic has been providing positive results backed up by research, making it the #1 dentist recommended brand. I feel good knowing that my family is using a product that provides up to 5x healthier gums in 2 weeks and up to 9x healthier gums in 4 weeks.
