Get Cozy with Netflix – #StreamTeam

Netlfix

Officially I can say it feels like Fall! The temperatures have drastically dropped, you have retired your summer wardrobe and brought out all your favourite fleece slippers and most importantly, your cozy sweatpants.

Truly, what is better than getting home from work (or a full day’s worth of errands in some cases), slipping on those comfy sweats (or pj’s in my case) and a big, baggy sweatshirt, popping fresh popcorn with some sprinkled chocolates in it (to satisfy the sweet and salty of course) and sitting down on the couch with your kids to watch a movie or favourite television show. Ok so let’s be real, in my house it doesn’t quite go down like that since I have two very rambunctious boys who don’t sit for a mere second (well at least until 7:00pm), but when they do settle down and want to want to watch television, I truly thank G-d for Netflix. There is always one (or six or seven) shows on there that they both want to watch and then there is peace and quiet that comes over the room … ahhhhh SUCCESS!!!

Your Child’s Destiny is their’s to Choose #StreamTeam

Netlfix

Over the last few years, with every birthday, I ask my oldest son what he wants to be when he grows up and every year it has changed. He started off saying he wanted to be a “vegetarian” which I am pretty sure he meant “veterinarian” as my dad and brother are both veterinarians and we spend a lot of time at their offices (vegetarian is possible though since he won’t go near any meat product), then it changed to a doctor and this year he wants to be a lawyer and a skating instructor. Through a few giggles, we tell him he can be anything he wants to be when he grows up and will always encourage him to choose his own path.

New to Netflix this February is Ever After High: Spring Unsprung which celebrates the idea that the story of your life is not written in permanent ink and have the power to create your own destiny. Here’s a peek:

Netflix Does #TBT – #StreamTeam

Who doesn’t love a good #TBT (throw back Thursday) pic especially when it involves large shoulder pads, big hair half pulled to the side by bobbles or hot loops, giant eye brows or best yet the tight waisted jeans with a crop top (HOT!), but some of my favourite throw back memories are those TV shows that I spent countless hours watching like Jem and the Hollagrams (she was truly outrageous), eating dinner ever so quickly in order to catch the opening song to Bev Hills 90210 and I can’t forget my afternoons post school watching Saved by the Bell (B. B. B. B. B. go Bayside) and now you can pretty much guess my age 😉

For the month of May, Netflix is having their own #TBT where they have a slew of our old time favourites listed and I couldn’t be happier. Here are some great titles for you to watch with your kids and rehash memories of your own:

For the older kids

Netflix #TBT 1. The Mighty Ducks
2. Ghostbusters
3. Heathcliff
4. Honey I Shrunk the Kids (one of my old time faves)
5. The Secret of Nimh
6. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
7. Spider-Man (my older guy watches this one daily while my husband rehashes his memories of watching this show early mornings when he was a kid)
8. The Facts of Life
9. The Smurfs (this is my bigger guys fave quiet time show and he knows all the lines off by heart)
10. Diff’rent Strokes

For the Younger Kids

Netflix #TBT

1. My Little Pony: The Runaway Rainbow
2. Sesame Street: Classics
3. The Busy World of Richard Scarry
4. The Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation (my nickname is Bear, I am sure you can figure out why)
5. Curious George
6. Clifford the Big Red Dog

While you are watching your old time favourite, why not take a page from the books (remember all the Bill Cosby J-E-L-L-O commercials) and make some Pudding Pops or you can settle for some good ol’ Mac & Cheese with ketchup

Happy Times
