IRON SHARPENS IRON: TOUGH MOTHERS RAISE TOUGH DAUGHTERS
This picture of my grandmother (left) with her twin sister is one that I find both inspiring and empowering. My grandmother was wise, resourceful, feminine, yet tough as nails. She took great pride in her appearance and believed that when you look your best, you perform your best. “Above all,” she said, “Preparedness is the key to successfully juggling the daily tasks of a (tough) mother.
Preparation and organization often means getting back to the basics. Finding multiple uses for everyday products, like Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs, help make being awesome easy.
Working in a field where aesthetics are everything, I need to look my best at all times.
In my vehicle’s armrest, I store travel-sized essentials to freshen my look during long workdays.
Deodorant, mouthwash, lotion and a small can of hair spray conveniently fit in a quart sized Ziploc® brand Storage bag with Easy Open Tabs. The bags make it simple to access my items when I’m in a hurry because they are easy to grip and open. When closed, the seal is nice and tight to prevent leaks.
I pack a separate bag of necessities for my husband to keep in his vehicle.
The other bag I carry is probably the most important.
Have you ever forgotten to replenish your diaper bag and get stuck in a smelly situation?
Umm yeah, me neither.
But if I did, there is an emergency gallon-sized Ziploc® brand Storage bag with Easy Open Tabs with diapers, baby wipes and hand sanitizer for our little tough tikes.
Tough mothers raise tough daughters and granddaughters. I wish my grandmother could see me now.
Thanks to her sage advice and passion for motherhood I’ve made a life for myself and my family that I can be proud of—and look effortlessly chic at the same time.
What makes you or your mom a tough mother?
Here’s a funny video from Ziploc that hits close to home. Each day can truly feel like an obstacle course, but we all pull it off with finesse just like these ladies! Check it out!
