Surviving the Holiday Break with Kids AND Netflix #StreamTeam

31st December 2016

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, so thank you so much.

And if you have younger kids, don’t forget to take advantage of their on-demand New Year’s Eve countdown options. You can choose from ten different videos, from Beat Bugs to Skylanders to Fuller House, and make it midnight whenever you want the little people to head to bed. I miss those days, when I could trick my kids into going to bed at 8pm.

Happy New Year everyone! Hope everyone has a fun New Year’s Eve! I’ll be here binge watching Life in Pieces (again) in my flannel penguin pyjamas, with a Diet Coke i.v. and sour cream and onion chips on standby. Jealous?
