Netflix Introduces New Kids Programs #NetflixKids

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of NETFLIX.


I don’t really like for my daughter to be in front of the TV too much.  We didn’t allow her to watch TV at all until she was 18 months old.  Since then she’s watched it on a limited basis but she does have favorite TV shows.  Because her favorite shows aren’t on constantly we looked to Netflix.  Netflix streams kids videos and TV shows 24/7.  It’s such a life saver!

Watching TV

 Netflix is great for cuddle time!

I usually watch a 30 minute show with my little one in the morning while I wait for my meds and coffee to kick in.  After that we play and don’t go back to the TV until the next morning.  Occasionally, I’ll use it as a babysitter but only briefly!  For instance, today I had to work in the kitchen, running back and forth, with the oven door open and I didn’t want to chance her coming in.  It worked wonders and as soon as I was finished we turned it off and went to playing with her kitchen.

Road Trip

 The Netflix app would be great to rescue kids from the boredom of long road trips!

We’ve had a Netflix subscription since a few months after we were married.  We love it and use it daily!  We have our favorite TV show reruns we’ll watch like Psych, whole series’ like 24, old Jimmy Stewart movies, new action flicks, and, of course, now that we have a little one in the house we’re partial to the cartoons on demand and the Disney movies!

Pretty Wicked Moms and “Me” Time

Mother and Daughter Reading

The job of a mom may be the hardest job in the world.  Moms have dozens and dozens of responsibilities, many of which aren’t seen by the naked eye.  Juggling everything day in and day out can leave you feeling overwhelmed and numb to the outside world.  When this continues without breaks of  “me” time it can be disastrous for your emotions and wreck havoc on your friendships and even your marriage.

Me time can be waking up early before your family to get your head clear and everything prepped for the day.  It could be planned quiet times while the kids play quietly in their rooms so you can refocus and regroup.  Whatever it is, it needs to be an essential part of every mom’s day or at least week!  {Check out 10 Ways to Pamper Yourself in 10 Minutes}

To stay sane I try and schedule two small blocks of me time every day where I’ll read my Bible for the first block of time and I’ll catch up on social media or read for the second.  Just about once a week I’ll spend time working on a new nail art design to show you.  Most people would think that attempting nail art would be frustrating and nerve-wracking and anything but a relaxing endeavor but for me it’s a fun, relaxing hobby.  It’s important for everyone to find something that they enjoy and that relaxes them.

Have you heard about a new series starting called Pretty Wicked Moms?  It will air on Tuesday, June 4, at 10:00 pm EST on Lifetime.  I’m excited to tune in and see what all the hype is about.  It’ll be interesting to see what all topics they’ll cover but I’d bet a lot that the topic of me time comes up at least a time or two.  Take a little me time of your own and tune in with me on June 4th to see what Pretty Wicked Moms is like and check out this brief preview below:
