As the parents of three Hispanic daughters, we know that our girls will grow up to experience struggles that others may not. We raise them to believe in themselves, to always strive to be and do their best, and to never give up. Since they were babies, we’ve always made sure to put the spotlight on successful, strong women, whether it be in entertainment, politics, sports, or friends and family. We want them to see that they can be anything they want to be as long as they work hard and never take no for an answer.

That’s one of the reasons why we choose to support companies that share our beliefs and that recognize that today’s little girls can grow up to be tomorrow’s accomplished woman. Johnson & Johnson, the U.S. Soccer Federation, and the U.S. Soccer Foundation are teaming up to provide the next generation of female leaders with the inspiration and support they need to pursue their dreams. Together, we can help her reach those goals. Because she can.

We always have Johnson & Johnson products in our home because not only do we love their mission but we appreciate brands that are authentic and provide products that we know will work. With three very active girls, we always have BAND-AID® bandages, NEOSPORIN® and Neutrogena® Sun products on hand. So while they are practicing, playing or just having fun, we are ready to treat their boo boos and protect them from the harsh Florida sun. Plus, if your kids are anything like ours, they go through that “I need a BAND-AID on every part of my body” phase.

Hello There!

I'm so honored that you've found us! I'm Heather, a Mom of 3 who blogs about parenting, food, occasional travel and how I overcame my daily struggle with anxiety. I miss sleeping and rely on coffee and laughter to get me through the day. I hope you enjoy and visit often!

  1. Awesome! I try to teach my daughter independence and dont put thoughts in her head that something is “just for boys” or “just for girls”!

  2. I am all about girl power!! This is fantastic, what a great initiative by Johnson and Johnson.

  3. Love this campaign! And love Johnson and Johnson products! I try to teach my kids that if they work hard, they can accomplish anything they set their mind to as well!

  4. Love this messaging so much! With my daughter I’m making sure I’m consistently letting her know how much I believe in her and support what she’s doing. I also provide room for her to make her own decisions so she feels empowered at a young age.

  5. Our neighborhood just opened a beach area and I think I should create a kit that stays down at the beach. Your tips will make it better.

  6. Those are three things everyone needs! We taught all of our kids to respect themselves AND other people. 3 of my 5 kids are grown and on their own, the younger two are college-aged. I’m very proud of all of them.

  7. My son wasn’t into sports but enjoyed playing with water. So we started with swimming and it worked bery good since then.

  8. These are some great reasons to use this particular brand. I actually already use most of these products and you give really great reasons for people who are not familiar with them to go ahead and try them.

  9. I wanted my daughter to be involved in at least one sport but she would not have any of that. She did enjoy dancing though, so I fully supported that. She, along with other girls in her school won dance competitions and I am so proud of her! Girls can go whatever they set their hearts and minds into!

  10. Girl Power! I love that Johnson & Johnson empowers women and girls all over the world! Nice read!

  11. My girl is a beast so she always makes sure that she inspires me with her words and encouragement. I always say that she makes me stronger just by being her.

  12. Love all about Girl power! Can’t wait to stock up on many of these items for the busy season!

  13. My girls are active and I have wanted them to try soccer. We have a league starting and signups next month. I want to get them to try it out.

  14. This sounds like a well worthy cause to support. I am all for supporting organisations that are now FINALLY waking up to just how responsible it is to tap into the female potential. I love that through buying these products everyone can be part of the change in raising the next generation of female leaders that the world will so badly need considering where things are today.

  15. Sounds you like guys are raising some mighty warriors! I love the mission behind J&J! We use their bandaids!

  16. Yes! Such an important thing we should know! Me, as a mother also, the first thing that you will see in my bag is sunscreen/sunblock. But haven’t tried these products, thanks for recommending it. Will definitely try!

  17. I agree – without even realizing, I always carry Johnson’s products in our home. BAND-AID bandages really are the best and are so reliable.

  18. I always made sure my daughter knew she was loved and that her worth came from Christ’s loves for her. I also taught her never to start a fight but not to let someone push her around either. She’s a pretty strong woman now.

  19. These are products that every family should have in their house. Thanks for sharing J&J coupon with us!

  20. Love finding a brand that supports and encourages little girls growing up to be tomorrow’s accomplished women. Love this “Because She can” movement! So empowering. I’m also a fan of the neutrogena sheer sunscreen.

  21. Raising two Hispanic girlies, we provided them with unique educational experiences outside the classroom and constantly reminded them that they could be whatever they wanted to be! Both graduated from universities early, with one being an engineer and (as of this past Friday) also graduating from law school, and the other working for a big corporation. We’re so proud of them both. Girls can absolutely achieve their big goals and dreams!

  22. Super cute! We just bought a bunch of J&J band aids today too since our little sports star keeps getting skinned knees.

  23. Great products. We use many of them in our home. We have 6 kids and someone is always in need of a band-aid and treatment!

  24. We are stocked up on all the above! I have 2 boys and 1 girl, and even though you say no rough housing, someones always needing a band aid.

  25. I have 3 girls, so I can totally get behind any company that has a mission of female empowerment. I’ve always loved the J&J brand, but even more so now!

  26. We have a teenage daughter, and my wife and I do everything we can to encourage her that she can do whatever she sets her mind to. I think this is a great thing J&J is doing for girls.

  27. I love this so much! We always tell our daughters they can do anything they put their mind too! These are some great products to have around the house. Our kids fall on occasion, so we keep Neosporin handy. Kudos to Johnson & Johnson for sponsoring this cause

  28. I have no kids, just an accident prone husband & dog. But these are essentials for any activity & adventure! I always carry bandaids especially…since I tend to be a “picker.” Thanks for sharing!

  29. I love it! If your kids don’t regularly need sunscreen, Band Aids, and Neosporin, they are missing out on life.

  30. We always make sure to have sunscreen and Neosporin on hand. Especially during the summer. It’s when the kids need it the most! Thanks for the reccos.

  31. I love this! I always tell my daughter she can do anything she puts her mind too! We have a lot of these products in the house. My daughter falls a lot, so neosporin is a must.

  32. All three of these products are ones that I have in stock at ALL TIMES in my house. You can never have enough Neosporin and Band-Aids.

  33. we love these products too! i put together a basket for my daughters soccer team and they loved everyting, esp so many of them have allergies too!

  34. My girls are all grown and I’m so proud of the women they’ve become. One of my daughters owns her own company and one is a stay at home mom and I’m proud of them both.
