{Update} Congrats la Familia Jimenez #LaFamiliaDeHoy #Ad #LatinaBloggers

*I am a proud member of Latina Bloggers Connect.  Latina Bloggers Connect has chosen me along with other Latina bloggers to share the “La Familia De Hoy” campaign.  This is a sponsored post on behalf of the Johnson & Johnson & Latina Bloggers Connect collaboration.  Trust that my own thoughts and opinions are shared below.  

This past NovemberI had the pleasure of introducing three families who were up for consideration to be Johnson & Johnson's La Famalia de Hoy spokes-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 are a modern, active, multicultural family – representative of all the values that Hispanics relate to and care about.

Healthy Essentials Presenta LA FAMILIA DE HOY™:

Although, all the families were delightful, I found many similarities between my family and the Jimenez family, which is why I elected them! 
I could not be happier for such a lovely family. Congratulations Familia Jimenez!

Reading about the Jimenez family and their closeness to their extended family made me think of living in Texas, and being surrounded by family, Sunday BBQs, and family game nights.  We no longer live close to our extended family, in spite of that we have modern technology to bring us together.

Another similarity my family and the Jimenez family share, the passion for being active and playing outside.  While excellent grades and school come first, we think it's important to have the kids playing a sport or doing something to keep them moving. The Jimenez Family gathers together for weekend BBQ’s or going to Juan’s boys’ soccer games.  

The Jimenez family is a soccer family; right now the AOK family is a softball, lacrosse, and baseball family {soon we'll be a basketball family too}.

All three of my children enjoy playing sports.  I enjoy watching them play sports. As much as I love watching them play ball-- I worry.  When I see a ball coming to close to my babies, a slide that didn't work out just right, a fall, or stumble; I tremble.

Thankfully minor scrapes and bruises are mendable.  Neosporin and Band-Aids are essential here in my home.  
My husband wouldn't allow us to not have Neosporin in this house, he's been an enthusiast for years.  Neosporin heals wounds four days faster than a bandage alone.  Since, I'm a germaphobe I appreciate that Neosporin provides 24-hour infection protection. 

Unfortunately, Neosporin cannot takeaway my trembles and fears of a ball hitting the kids, but at least I can rest a little more easy knowing Band-Aid & Neosporin together can help our family heal a bit sooner.

P.S. I'm the loud cheering mama in the stands, are you?

Congrats again, to the Jimenez family!!!
