Well, somehow April totally snuck up on me! What the heck time…you’ve got to SLOW DOWN.
I mean my baby boy went from this:
I love watching my children grow up and become little people, but this time around it’s making me sad! I just want to freeze time with my sweet little roly poly baby boy!
But I digress…
Let’s talk about Netflix :)
Like I’ve mentioned a million times before…we are BIG fans. I absolutely adore being able to chose what we want to watch any time commercial free. It totally rocks.
I love that Netflix has a “Kids Only” profile option. I know that Grace won’t stumble on anything inappropriate while she’s browsing for a show to watch because she’s on her personal profile which is set up to only display kids shows.
The girls continue to have their favorite shows….Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Super Why, Caillou, and Bo On The Go.
But more recently Grace has gotten really into this funny Penguin claymation series called Pingu. There is no dialogue, the penguins talk in their own gibberish, but she just loves it! I always like when she’s interested in old school stuff. Makes my nostalgic heart happy :)
I recently binge watched Sons of Anarchy (first 6 seasons are available on Netflix) and I think I’m still emotionally involved with the characters! I won’t lie…SOA is a very gritty show. It’s about a motorcycle club/gang in California. There’s lots of shoot ’em up action and drama! I’m surprised I got sucked in to it, but I guess The Walking Dead (also available on Netflix!) changed my taste in shows!
Now if something is not life and death intense, I’m yawning! LOL
Another new show I’ve been seeing buzz about is a Netflix Original Series called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
I haven’t watched an episode yet, but it looks like a fun girly show to watch on nights Andy is busy studying. I think I’ll give it a whirl this month and let you know what I think! Have you watched it yet? Let me know in the comments…
That’s all for March’s post! I juts love being a Netflix Stream Team member…they are so good to us and it’s so easy for me to share how we’re using Netflix in our home because we love it so much :)
Disclosure: I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team and will be sharing monthly tips and stories about how my family uses Netflix on a regular basis. As a member of the Stream Team I was provided with welcome kit including a voucher to apply towards my Netflix account. I was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.

First and more important, your baby is so cute and yes, they grow way too fast!!
My boys are 21 and 24 now and let me tell you we were Pingu addicts a few years back, we watched every episode, had books, pencil cases. This ingenious show from Northen Europe is absolutely amazing. We still have a VHS (did I give my age aways ??) tape full of Pingu.
What I like about Netflix is the series, I can watch 1,2 or 3 episodes at one sitting, when family life permits. I am hooked on white collar now, Matt Bomer anyone ?? OMG!!
I also love the international movies.
Not enough hours in the day to do what a working Mom needs and wants to do!!
Happy Easter everyone!!
Hi Monica, thanks so much for the comment!! We are new to Pingu, but my Grace just loves it!! And I’m with you on loving Netflix for watching multiple episodes in a row! I’ll have to check out White Collar even though I’m nervous to get hooked on a series because it ends up being all I want to do! LOL Have a very happy Easter :)
I just started watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! It’s so funny, I think you’ll really like it. It’s the perfect way to come down off the intense high of a show like house of cards or SOA before going to bed, or on nights when you just want to giggle.
OOH! Good to know! I love a personal recommendation and if you like it, I bet I will too!
