Hello my besties!
While I gather my peanut butter, marshmallows, and popcorn, we are going to talk a bit about my time management. M’KAY? Glad you agree!
When speaking about my blog, can you guess what question I am asked the most? Come on, take a guess…
Did you say, “how do you find time to blog with two kids, husband, house, etc…?!?!” CORRECT! That question comes up 100% of the time.
I have an answer and it’s always the same one, “nap time and Netflix!”. Thank goodness for those two things or I would be one very tired (read: crazy) Mama.
I specifically need to thank Pingu for keeping Ana, my 3-year old, entertained all of the time! If I let her, she would watch Pingu all day. And Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. OH! I can’t forget about Powerpuff Girls! She loves them. Actually, she thinks that she’s one of them.
Then there’s my almost one-year old, Aleksandra. She’s SO sweet. All she wants to watch is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Road Rally or My Little Pony. In fact we watch them together while Ana watches her Netflix shows on my laptop or the Touch Pad. One of the better features is that you can watch your favorite TV shows and movies anywhere, at any time. Netflix is available on hundreds of devices, and, if you’re like me, you probably have all of them!
On the weekends, Saturday nights to be exact, I make some popcorn, or these incredibly delicious and fun Peanut Butter Marshmallow Popcorn Bars, and the four of us, all together, try to enjoy a couple of the kid’s favorite shows on Netflix before they go to bed. 101 Dalmatians was last weekend’s pick. This weekend we are going to watch Thomas & Friends: Go Go Thomas. He is another favorite around here. Aleksandra calls him, CHOOCHOO!!
The dedicated kids section on Netflix has family favorites appropriate for children ages 2- 12. All content is selected with help from Common Sense Media to provide ratings, reviews and information so parents can easily make choices for their kids.
What are you watching on TV with your family? Netflix has family favorites from Disney, Disney Jr., Hasbro, Cartoon Network and Dreamworks that are available to stream anytime, anywhere. And streaming is easier than you think! Download the free app on your iPad, click on the Netflix app on any gaming device, go to the website on your computer – and you’re in business.

And, in the meantime, make these popcorn bars – they are amazing!
