They Say it’s Your Birthday – but Even if They’re Lying You Should Still Celebrate

“They say it’s your birthday!!” “Happy Birthday!” …what? It’s not your birthday? Well, hold on to your hat because I’m going to talk about it anyway. And I bet you know someone with a birthday this month. Great, thanks for reminding me, I do know someone and I have nothing planned. I got chu. And…

Netflix Prompts – So Your Kids Will Finally Watch Those 90s Movies With You!

I love to see an old show pop up on Netflix that I used to watch when I was a teen. The memories come flooding back and I inundate my daughter with quotes, bits of information, and trivia from my favorites. Que her eye rolls. I couldn’t wait to introduce her to The Muppets, Ace…

Netflix has you covered, morning, noon, and night

From the moment my daughter wakes up until the moment she goes to sleep she asks to watch her shows on Netflix. It takes routine and communication with her for her to understand that we aren’t going to spend every second in front of the television. But with the incredible shows that Netflix has to…

Netflix Social Experiment… Teens

Every day, after I pick up my daughter from school, I ask her how her day was. I get creative because I know that this type of closed ended question can lead to answers like, “fine,” “good,” “okay.” So I ask her what songs they sang, what games she played at recess, who she hung…

Spring Cleaning with Netflix

I can smell it. Spring. And cat litter; but if I open the windows the cat litter smells like spring too. With spring comes organization, cleaning, and tidying up our spaces. Getting things spik and span. Why should our Netflix accounts be any different? Throughout the year our lists become jumbled with suggestions based on…

Promoting Strong Female Leads with Netflix

When I became a mother I knew I wanted to provide a safe and fun home for my child but I hadn’t given much thought to the pressures of society, gender roles, what being a parent meant, or how my thoughts, actions, and self doubts played a role in who my would child become. When…

Looking for Gloom and Doom?? Netflix has you Covered!

My daughter is at a weird age right now. She loves cartoons but also is kind of getting into the tween shows that make you want to stab yourself in the eye at first, but once you watch a few you realize you’re dedicated to the characters and want to watch even when your child…

It’s a Gilmore Girls Revival with Netflix!

All through my formative years it was Lorelai and Rory, their fast talking, mother/daughter relationship surrounded by supportive¬†friends and family that would have me sitting in front of my television wishing I could find a space between them, downing copious amounts of coffee, not suffering from anxiety when I heard them speaking so fast, and…

Family Movie Night with a New Recipe and Netflix

Fall has arrived. Much to the dismay of the sun worshipers, beach lovers, short wearers, and those of us who bought 10 pairs of flip-flops on clearance. We are now back in the full swing of school routine. Making lunches, completing homework (for the first time over here), agenda reminders, library books, pizza money… and…
