Movies We Would Watch With The Kids If We Had Time

As the days get cooler and shorter, it becomes harder and harder to avoid getting cozy on the couch and checking out what’s on Netflix. This is especially hard when kids are involved, because if your kids are like our kids, they bow down to the great ruler of their lives, the almighty television.

Now to be fair, in our place the TV is situated where it’s hard to avoid it. 46 inches of amazement always so close. No wonder they hover even when it’s off. Thankfully, with Netflix connected, the selection is wide and the commercials are gone.

Anyone else have kids who bounce as the Netflix loading screen runs?

With the boys being 3 and 6, it’s hard to find movies that they both truly like at the same time. Generally we have to go more towards the toddler movies, rather than the big kid movies.

We used to have movie nights with our oldest where he would stay up a little later and watch an animated movie. But we have not done that for some time. Mostly because by the time it reaches bedtime, mom and dad want to have their own time back. Also, Our youngest just is not there to stay up and focus on a movie.

One of the staples of our movie nights is popcorn. Good ol’ air popped popcorn. Our oldest loves his straight up plain. The adults love to add flavour, whether it’s butter and salt or other flavours that you generally can enjoy at the movie theatre.

The lovely people at Netflix recently sent over a cool package full of everything you need to have a movie night with your kids. Snacks, a bowl and even a hot air popper. Pretty amazing.

The only bummer is we have not had time to even think about a movie night. For us September is full of stuff. The end of summer, back to school, birthdays, the exhaustion of back to school and this year in particular, the Toronto Blue Jays have taken over our lives.

So I really, really appreciate the package from Netflix and the list of movies they even suggest watching. We will just have to put it on hold until life settles down. When will that be?

October starts off with another birthday, then Thanksgiving and again, those darn Blue Jays making a World Series run.

Don’t worry popcorn and Netflix movies we will get to you. We will all get cozy on the couch with snacks and enjoy some family time watching some fun-filled movies.

At least that is the plan. It could easily be November and it is still the plan.

Anyways, for those who do want to enjoy a family night, here are some of the movies Netflix is suggesting.
