Last November I wrote a blog post about Johnson & Johnson’s La Familia de Hoy ™ (Today’s Family) competition on Univision where I had to choose my favorite contestant family to win the title of 2014 Healthy Essentials’ La Familia de Hoy ™ and guess which family I chose? The champions, The Jimenez family!

In December, Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies revealed the  Jiménez family as LA FAMILIA DE HOY™ Juan, Biviana and their three children: Elisa, Diego and Benicio. Some of the qualities of why the Jimenez family represent what it is, La Familia de Hoy ™ are; They are  a modern, active, multicultural family, just like mine and we share the same values that Hispanics relate to and care about.

Having lots of things in common is why I chose The Jimenez family as my favorite to win  the title of 2014 Healthy Essentials’ La Familia de Hoy ™ For example; The Jimenez family is part of a larger family: The Jimenez brothers are 4, 3 wives, 8 children and one grandmother. The three married brothers live right next to each other and the grandmother is  right there with them, although my family doesn’t share a backyard like they do, we ‘re always looking out after each other, my mom and my sisters are always helping me babysit my boys, we are BIG on family gatherings (Any excuse  is great for a family gathering) We’re always together in good and bad times, because family matters most. Just like the Jimenez family, one of my family’s goals in life is to pass on  to my children, our  traditional values and Hispanic roots.

At my home we’re all Mexicans, but since my children have never lived in Mexico, we all make sure to teach them about the richness of our beloved country, either through food eating some delicious chilaquiles or tamales, listening to mariachi or reading a book about Mexico’s history, just like the Jimenez family we’re making sure my children grow up learning and absorbing all the obtainable knowledge from us, in order to make the right choices when reaching their adult life, but most importantly I always tell my two boys, that family is what matters and no one is more important in life than your family and they should always look out for each other.

Because Family Matters Most.

Loving your family means, taking care of them, and the products we use at home play a big part. Specially since I became a mother I choose very wisely the products I buy, but I always knew that with Johnson & Johnson’s Healthy Essentials, you can’t go wrong because they make it so easy for a mom/wife to take care of her family.

Johnson’s® Baby shampoo & conditioner was a must at my home when my boys were babies but we still use Johnson’s® No More Tangles® Leave In Conditioner which we applied right after the shampoo to avoid knots, which also control frizz for silky and shiny hair, it leaves my boys’ hair super soft!

Another must in my  Infants’ Tylenol, specially since my oldest used to get the highest fevers, but I knew  Infants’ Tylenol will relieve pain or bring down his fever safely and efficiently and that’s not all,  It gives you the comfort of knowing you’re caring for your baby with compassion and expertise.

I’ve always been strict when it comes to dental health. From day one, I taught my children the importance of brushing their teeth 3 times a day, flossing and rinsing, and now that they are 5 & 6 years old,  they can safely use Listerine®. Brushing misses 75% of your mouth, in children must be higher, so  Listerine® Antiseptic cleans virtually 100% Having healthy gums is extremely important for your health, by making Listerine® Antiseptic a part of your daily oral care routine, you get up to 5x healthier gums in 2 weeks and get up to 9x healthier gums in 4 weeks.

Specially having 2 boys you know cuts and bruises could be a thing of everyday! Specially with my youngest who is fearless and thinks he’s a monkey, that’s why I always carry Neosporin Original Ointment which provides 24-hour infection protection and heals wounds four days faster (than a bandage alone) and it helps protect this handsome face because it minimizes the appearance of scars.

I’m an avid athlete, I’m always exercising and trying new sports and since Moms don’t have time for pain,  Bengay is a must at my house. I love that after a 3 hour bike ride I put on Bengay on my back and I can feel it working on contact and It relieves muscle and joint pain to help me get moving again!
