Promoting STEAM with “Project MC2” & the #StreamTeam

Netflix Parenting Cheat Sheet

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I’m super-duper happy to continue the convo this month about what the kids are learning- and from whom. Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and gadget-happy kids are entirely my own. *** Half of parenting is instilling important values in your kids. (The other half is yelling inane things from either the top or bottom of any given stairwell. “Trucks aren’t for nostrils!” et. al.) And I’m not going to lie; raising {Read More}

Hey, gang, let’s put on a show! (With Netflix & the #StreamTeam)

Netflixlogo1-2

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I get to have a stupid amount of fun and pretend it’s all for the children. Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and felt creations are entirely my own. (Okay, fine, the kids helped.) *** Remember back in the day, back when Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland, et.al were all about Putting On A Show? (I’m not saying it’s back in MY day, but it’s definitely in my mental Filofax of cultural {Read More}

Live-blogging jury duty*

Jury Duty

*…Not really. Because I’m fairly sure that’s illegal. Let’s try: Slightly time-delayed reporting on jury duty! I’m actually pretty excited about it. I’ve been training for this my entire life, what with the marathon sessions of Law & Order. (And Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Trial by Jury and oh my God, am I now in that one?!) Some of you who’ve been reading since way back in the day {Read More}

Getting out of jail free with Netflix and the #StreamTeam

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I *usually* get to highlight their streaming awesomeness. But this month? I’m highlighting some questionable behavior. Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and unethical husbands are entirely my own. *** Whoo boy, do you people have feelings. I asked a simple question- or rather a few simple questions- and learned some things about you guys. When it comes to Netflix “cheating,” or the act of continuing on in a season sans your {Read More}

Which Netflix family are you? (A #StreamTeam quiz)

netflixquiz

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I’m here to save your holiday week with programming that truly understands your family. (Even if you don’t.) Although I’m compensated, all thoughts, opinions, and requests to PleaseStopTouchingMe are entirely my own. *** Sometimes you just want to throw a blanket over your head and tune out the world, you know? (Don’t even pretend like you don’t know. You know.) Netflix feels you. Netflix wants to snuggle up next to you on {Read More}

Building grey matter with the #StreamTeam.

Jasper science bottle

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, it’s my media-happy pleasure to share the best of the streaming (and curated) best each month. Even though I’m compensated for my posts, all thoughts, opinions, and loud children are entirely my own. *** Netflix makes kids smarter. No, really. Sure, there are the zombie-inducing, brain-breaking shows (you know, like some of the ones we grew up with?) but it always feel so good for my brain (and conscience) when my offspring {Read More}

Netflix told Nora to stand up for herself. (Think she’ll listen?)

Nora tooth

Disclosure: As a member of Netflix’s Stream Team, I get access to crazy/lovely streaming knowledge and goodies in exchange for my unabashed adoration of all things Netflix- but, as always, all thoughts, opinions, and animation gratitude are entirely my own. *** No one ever said being a parent was easy. (In fact, not a day goes by where people don’t stop me on the street to inform me how hard parenting actually is. THANKS FOR THE TIP, I tell them as {Read More}

Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, Joe Manganiello & an interactive map.

PeeWee1

As a Stream Team member, I usually blog about the best of Netflix’s streaming best…but THIS month I get to give an insider’s look at the Netflix Original movie Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday. They also gave me a map! I’m drunk on power. Follow along! (But hands off my root beer barrels and my Joe Manganiello.) *** If you grew up thinking Pee-Wee’s playhouse, contraptions, and speech patterns were the height of comedy… ..then you probably didn’t grow up at all. {Read More}
