Netflix Offers New Family-Friendly Movies & Shows

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

Have I told y’all that we gave up our satellite television? It’s true. It’s been approximately two months now since we decided to turn it off. I am a news junkie, which isn’t always a good thing, but that is about the only thing I miss from our hundreds of channels. We didn’t watch the TV enough to justify the cost each month and we realized that more often than not, we were flipping over to Netflix for our entertainment fix.


Netflix is probably one of my favorite things ever.  I mean, we only pay $7.99 per month and we never run out of shows to watch and new movies to check out.  Justin and I spend every Friday night flipping through the movies or watching a show together. I loved it when they rolled out the Netflix for Kids section so they can only see the family-friendly shows geared toward kids 2-12.  I don’t have to worry about one of them accidentally choosing a vulgar show or one that I wouldn’t approve of for my 4 & 2 year old kids with Netflix for Kids.   Bryson and Bella watch Netflix together every morning right after they wake up.  They wake up, tell me good morning, share some snuggles with me, then they ask me to turn on Netflix.  That is our morning routine.  While they watch a show, I respond to e-mails, moderate comments, enjoy a cup of coffee, then start on breakfast.

Messy bedhead and watching Netflix- our typical morning!

Netflix recently added some new content from Hasbro, Disney Jr., and Cartoon Network.   Bella’s favorite is Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax while Bryson enjoys Cars Toons: Mater’s Tall Takes.  On slow nights, those night when supper is done early, everyone is home, we like to pick out a family-friend movie to watch together.  So far, we’ve watched 101 Dalmatians and ParaNorman.  Those were hits, especially with Bryson, and he talks about ParaNorman all. the. time.

Netflix is used daily in our home and it’s also used on the go.  I have the Netflix app downloaded on my iPhone which comes in handy for trips or long waits.  Netflix has become a part of every day life and it’s hard to remember TV before Netflix!
