When We Netflix

Remember the days of waiting until 4 PM for your show to come on and having just five channels to choose from? Times have changed! Now we can watch what we want when we want (well, if mom says it's okay!). So, here are all the times we Netflix; it's a verb, right? 

1. Hockey games. Nya, who just turned five, has to attend both of her brother's hockey games. I encourage her to pay attention and cheer until at least the half and then she is welcome to watch a show on the iPad. She loves Teen Titans on Netflix and if there is no Wifi, she watches episodes of Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig that we've downloaded from Netflix.

2. Car rides. Right now in our van we have three kids squished in the back seat as we have five children. Being that one kid is in a huge car seat, things are tight and feelings escalate quickly. We let them watch the downloaded Netflix shows and all three still find Peppa Pig amusing.

3. On the treadmill. I don't think I could run more than ten minutes without a show to watch. I use headphones so I can hear it well. I just watched That Sugar Film and if you are wanting to kick refined sugar out of your house, watch this! I'm feeling motivated; I know what a difference this makes in my life especially in regards to clarity of mind. This man ate 40 tsp of sugar each day eating regular food like low fat yogurt, cereals etc. while keeping exercise and calories the same. In just 60 days he gained 8.5kg and his waist circumference increased by 10 cm. I'll leave the rest for you to see but I do recommend it.

4. Friday Nights! The kids still enjoy hanging out with us (okay, they have no choice–I'm not driving them to a friend's house on Friday night yet) so we usually have Movie Night! I just noticed they have the movie Flubber which I watched as a kid and there are many more I would love to check out (Cool Runnings, Queen of Katwe, The BFG to name a few).

When do you Netflix? If you have a movie recommendation for our next movie night, please let me know!

  1. I guess I'll be watching That Sugar Film! ;)

    1. I was thinking of you while watching it! Once we are down to 3 kids again I hope to be more serious about cutting out refined sugar--white bread type products are my guilty pleasure 😳
