My son just turned 13 in December. So I’m new at this teenager thing, but damn it comes on fast and it comes on strong, no? New greys and wrinkles, welcome! They’ll be more on the way to keep you company, I promise. So how do I feel closer to my teen? If I asked him, his answer would be simple: Never say no. Get over the fact that electronics are what I want to be doing ALL THE TIME. Feed me pasta for every meal. Ok so that’s a tad jaded, but Mommy is TIRED of the teenager schtick already. But there is hope! A recent NETFLIX study revealed that watching your teen’s shows with them makes them feel closer to you. Canadian parents (82%) admit they are already watching shows like Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars and Stranger Things to feel closer to their teenager. And teens around the world [Continue Reading…]

Now watch the movie trailer and take your momma/sista/girliefriend to see this movie!

I’m not a big New Years resolution person. Mostly because I never keep them. Ever. But Netflix resolutions? That’s something I could totally do. Netflix and I are besties after all.

The Christmas Holidays are coming to an end…..or are they? Yes, it’s New Year’s eve but with school not back until the 9th, the holiday break continues. It’s ok though. The kids have promised not to fight, yell or say they’re bored for the next nine days. It could happen. In the meantime, we’ll amuse ourselves with various xmas gifts, activities involving snow, sprinkles and bowling balls and of course, NETFLIX!!! With the release of some great new shows this month like Gilmore Girls, Fuller House Season 2 and the new Netflix/Dreamworks series Trollhunters, the odds of hearing I’m bored from the brood will hopefully be greatly diminished. I’d also like to send Netflix a personal thank you for their new download option, so the kids have something to watch on the holiday road trips. It really cuts down on the slapfights when their hands are busy holding their ipads, [Continue Reading…]

We are official back to school and back to our fall routine, finally. I love summer and summer break but by the end of the summer, I am ready to be back to a more scheduled lifestyle. Mommy needs a break. Plus it’s cardigan weather and who doesn’t love a cardigan??? Over the summer we watched a ton of movies and shows with the kids whenever we wanted. During the school year however, we watch our movies mostly on the weekends. On Fridays, we have pizza and a movie night. We make homemade personal pizzas then choose/fight over which movie to watch. (Side Note: Here is the yummiest, easiest personal pan pizza recipe ever. We use Naan bread as the crust, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and then whatever toppings you want, from pepperoni to peppers, and then throw it in the oven at 350. The kids love making their own [Continue Reading…]
We are a Netflix family. The kids, the husband and I are big fans If it weren’t for my need to watch The Real Housewives of every city in the U.S. of A, we would probably cancel our cable subscription, but alas, not happening. So what are we watching this summer?? ME: I’ve been watching some documentaries and stand-up comedy specials that I’ve really enjoyed. Ali Wong: Baby Cobra – She is HYSTERICAL. This is one hour of hilarious joy – WATCH IT!! AMY – A fantastic documentary about Amy Winehouse. Totally wrecked me. LUTHER – My girlfriend Laura has been telling me to watch this show FOREVER, and I finally sat down and watched it and totally binged on it. It was so good, and so well done, that it’s probably one of the best shows I’ve seen in ages. Also, Idris Elba is very pretty with an accent, so [Continue Reading…]
