Oh, 2016. I have been anticipating this year since I became a mom in 2010, and it is finally here.

My babies will start kindergarten this year. All of them. Together. Gone.

We have seven months until then, and while I beg the clock to slow down FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, I am planning to soak up the freedom before we get caught up in The Ststem.

  • Orlando in three weeks for RunDisney events.
  • Atlanta sometime before April to take advantage of the Georgia Aquarium’s Mommy and Me free weekday admission.
  • Season passes for Cedar Fair amusement parks with as many visits to Carowinds as we can manage plus at least one two-day trip to Cedar Point and probably more than one visit to King’s Island. King’s Dominion isn’t too far, so maybe we’ll visit there simply because we can.
  • So much boating.
  • So much pool time.
  • Invent a time turner or figure out apparition or something because my list is exhausting.

Thankfully we also adventure from our house, too, and we do it while cuddling.

Netflix, you are amazing.

Netflix adventures on our list:

  • Planet Earth
  • Sherlock
  • New episodes of Sofia the First
  • GILMORE GIRLS GILMORE GIRLS GILMORE GIRLS

If you haven’t watched Jessica Jones, that’s one adventure you need to take.

Netflix, when can we have season two? Soon, please!

“Mama, can I stay up to watch the New Year’s countdown?”

“Sure!” … on Netflix. At 7 p.m.

Last year, Netflix introduced a streaming countdown with Madagascar’s King Julian, giving parents the option of counting down a New Year’s Eve celebration with even the littlest party animals.

This year, Netflix is upping their game and is offering not only King Julian’s countdown but five more options: Care Bears and Cousins, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Inspector Gadget, Puffin Rock and Project Mc2.

Happy (well-rested) New Year, friends!

I think not.

Rob and I have been working through The Walking Dead, starting with season one, episode one. We just started season four and, thanks to Netflix adding season five on Sept. 25, we will likely wrap up our recap just before season six begins airing on AMC.

Rob and his coworkers have been recapping season two of Blacklist to prep for the upcoming season three premiere on Blacklist. He has been telling me to get on this bamdwagon, and I think this is finally my year to join in.

I don’t think I quite live under a rock, but I was totally surprised last week when I saw a trailer for Heroes Reborn, a new NBC spinoff series based on the original Heroes. I fell in love with the show almost five years ago while I spent hours with my breast pump and Netflix as my trusty companion, then not only did the show just *poof* end, but it disappeared from Netflix soon after I finished.

Heroes is not only back on TV in this new, “reborn” series, but the original is also baaaaaaaack on Netflix!

Praise the Netflix marathon gods, my shelfie is packed with awesomeness!

My kids are just like me in their Netflix viewing habits – they’re repeat offenders. They have the shows/movies they like, and getting them to check out something new isn’t always easy.

Dinotrux premiered on Netflix at just the right time. ETC saw a preview for the show on the DVD for Home, so when they saw the image pop up on Netflix, they freaked out. “We just saw that preview before Home! Can we watch it?”

Something new I don’t know the theme song to by heart (and wish I didn’t)? SURE, KIDDOS.

It’s a cute show, I must say. Half dinosaur, half construction truck, the first two episodes I’ve seen talk about bullies and standing up for yourself as well as the power of sticking together and being friends. All three of my kids were captivated for two episodes while I cooked dinner after a long day at the playground.

I’m a fan.
