I never considered myself a “strong” person until I got married and had kids. There’s something about the experience that changes you right down to your very core. Growing up, I wasn’t the most confident girl, veering away from raising my hand in class (even if I knew the answer) and never stuck up for myself the way that I should have. But fast forward to almost nine years of motherhood and I’m much more assertive and will stick up for my whole crew if need be. Motherhood has morphed me into the strong person that I am today.

Truth be told, it really surprised me how much becoming a mom strengthened me right down to my bones. It was like it washed over me as soon as I gave birth to Branden and happened yet again when Blake was born. Kids humble you and at the same time make you realize that you have these precious lives that you’re in charge of protecting, and you need to be the rock that’s always there to support them when they need it most.

Strength comes in many different forms, and while I probably turn blue in the face most days repeating myself, I know that my kids pick up on the actions that I put out into the world more than anything. I’m kind, I’m fair, I’m a hard worker and if my kids want to see my strength in a more physical form, they can meet me at our local track a few mornings a week where I run really intense sprints. I hope that my kids see what I do for them, myself and our household on a daily basis, and watch me push through when obstacles come my way. I hope they hold these lessons dear and carry them with them as they grow.

And you know what? Strong moms choose strong products too, which is why I always, always have Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags handy. Beyond their amazing features (ahem ARM & HAMMER™ patented odor neutralizer, active tear resistant technology, and amazing fragrances – just to name a few), Hefty is celebrating strong moms, who tackle strong messes on a daily basis. Praise! Just like Hefty®’s trash bags, we’re all Ultra Strong™ in everything we do.

To make things even more fun, for the second year in a row, WWE superstar John Cena is helping to remind us that Hefty® has the best bags ever at a lower price than the competition. And his mom, Carol Cena, proves that moms knows best when it comes to ultra-strength and ultra-savings.

I couldn’t ask for a sweeter deal, could you? What do you do every day to show your strength with your kiddos?

Fashionably Yours,

  1. I think parenting makes you strong because it’s something you want to instill in you. And parenting just makes you strong anyways and you don’t even realize it! It just kinda happens!

  2. Omg the Bomb LIke Mum shirt is SOOOOO adorable! Where did you get that shirt?
    I haven’t used those trash bags in a while. Cute post!

  3. It is quite amazing what happens to a woman once she becomes a “mom.” Motherhood really makes one strong.

  4. After having baby #2 just 4 weeks ago, I’m reminded of just how strong I can be – if just only for her need to see how far she can take me haha!

    Also, your kid is adorable and love that shirt! 😀

  5. Supermom alert. ! This post is so cute.i love the hefty bags they are the best of trash and when you get a lot of boxes.

  6. I think parenting makes you stronger because to be honest, what choice do we have? I love how empowered being a strong mum makes me feel and I love that my son can see this too. I learnt from the best though… my mum was amazing! ☺️

  7. I don’t have kids yet but I can understand what you’ve been going through. I think you have no chance but to be stronger when you have kids. It’s not only about you anymore. But since you need to be two to have kids, you can also be two to be strong. Make sure your partner is being strong with you 🙂

  8. I was the same way growing up . Motherhood has a way of making women stronger most of the time because we have to. Now that I have two girls I’m glad that I can show them that strong side of me and hopefully encourage them along the way.

  9. Love this! Moms juggle so many tasks, including caring for kids and taking out the trash!

  10. I agree that strong mom’s chooses strong products for the family and I also admire your strength! Love the Tee “BOMB LIKE MOM!”!

    Pammy –

  11. I’m the same way. My husband jokes that my momma bear comes out when it comes to sticking up for my family. Also my son needs that shirt! Love it.

  12. It’s a funny thing that happens when your kids get older and start to have experinces of their own. They start to see your life in a much different way. The other day I was talking with my daughter about something that happened years ago and she said “I have no idea how you got through that” I couldn’t help but smile. x

  13. I think as soon as you become a parent you automatically become super-human. You develop or i must say find these special powers within yourself to be the best for your child! Good post love it 🙂

  14. I literally just recited their commercial “hefty hefty hef-ty” LOLLL! I still haven’t tried their garbage bags but I clearly need to.

  15. we use Hefty bags too, great brand. i don’t have any kids yet, but do understand about this insight.
