For those who follow the blog each month, you know I post something related to Netflix and kids. Each month the team at Netflix shares a theme that we write about and try to tie it to our family and viewing experiences.
This month, I have to admit, the theme just doesn’t stick for my situation.
For your March post, share which female Netflix characters your kids connect with and how they have made a positive impact.
Now, the obvious is, I don’t have girls and my boys will make a face if I ask who their fave female characters are.
Secondly, when our sons watch Netflix, I am not in the mindset to really focus on what my kids are taking away from it. Yes, call me a bad parent, but it’s the truth. I am probably dozing with my eyes open.
They, like me, watch Netflix to turn the brain off and just enjoy 22 minutes of entertainment. Whether it’s Saturday morning or a quick cartoon before bed, it’s a time to just relax.
The world seems to be in the shitter thanks to Trump and his mighty executive pen. The news sucks, social media is depressing, it’s cold outside and the Raptors are a dumpster fire. So what has me laughing?
Looking for a new series to get your binge on with? Why not go royal with the latest Netflix original to hit the small screen. The Crown.
My wife and I recently got to attend an exclusive screening of the first two episodes and I have to say, it pulled me in. I can’t wait to watch the other 8 episodes. I also read there are 6 seasons planned. That’s a lot of Queen.
For those who don’t know, The Crown, details the life of Queen Elizabeth starting just before she becomes the Queen. The budget is big, the cast is amazing and it’s a show I can see doing very well with viewers and awards.
It was also cool to hear a few of the characters answer questions at the event in Toronto.
Mornings can be tough for everyone. But when you add kids to the mix, things get really hairy. Going from slamming the snooze to getting out the door on time can rival the hardest challenges you see on Survivor. You don’t just have to worry about yourself, you have to manage a perfectly executed assault for multiple people.
If you don’t? Breakfast is not eaten, teeth are left dirty and permission sheets are once again forgotten. Let’s not even talk about having the brain power to think about what is for dinner in 9 hours. It’s controlled madness in our house. Little talking, lots of doing.
We have it down to a science for the most part, but has always the one variable that can throw it all out of whack are the kids.
