In ALL, NETFLIX by Stephanie Klein3 Comments

I don’t let my beans watch TV or use electronics during the week, but man, come Friday, when they rip off the knapsacks, they charge for the remotes, choosing different rooms and different TV’s. So, I ask you this, does making something forbidden make it all the more desirable? If I didn’t prohibit TV, would they care about it less? Actually, I don’t care. I’m happier in a home without the TV keeping us company. It makes me feel like I’m being a good parent.

When Lucas whines that he wants to watch TV, I tell him to go into his playroom and play with Legos. This always appeals to him. Legos are great for strengthening fine motor skills, fostering creativity, and promote engineering. Recently, he’s tried to argue that he can play Legos while watching the newest shows on Netflix, namely: LEGO Bionicle and LEGO Friends. “You know, for Abby,” he says. He hasn’t won me over, but on Friday’s, Lego Bionicle is his first stop.

Until then, I’m madly in love with the show THE FALL, and I need to find out when it’s coming back. 5 final episodes will be coming! OBSESSED with it. If you haven’t seen it, you must. You will thank me. It’s sexy and thrilling, suspenseful, and it reminds me, makes me think of Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, with her white Hermes scarf, here in THE FALL, it’s Gillian Anderson and her white silk blouses. You must watch. Please tell me what you think of it!

  1. I agree with the love for the Fall. I enjoyed the way they got so into the process of the detective work. And the flawed characters are very interesting. I hope it comes back soon!
