I will be the first to admit that Netflix is a bit of a crutch in this household when it comes to entertaining the kids.  Want to shower in peace? Throw on a show. Need to get dinner made? Throw on a show. You know the drill…

While I try and limit TV time as much as possible for the kids, there are just some moments where Netflix makes life easier.  And I am ok with taking the help that I need in those moments.

But Netflix isn’t just for kids, unlike Trix. (Shoot- Did I just date myself?) 😛

Mamas be watching too.  And we be watching sometimes wayyyy too late into the night, but that Netflix watching is sometimes a sanity saver.  Life is busy.  Parenting, while fun and wonderful, is hard and tiring too.  Sometimes you just want to put on a great show and lose yourself for a little while.

Here are my favourite titles to lose myself to on Netflix:

6- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Comedy)

Those are all keeping me SUPER entertained these days!
