Sometimes you don’t hear from me on the blog and social media and that is 99.9% due to me doing the infamous Netflix binge.
I have no shame when it comes to shutting down my life and sneaking off to watch Netflix. I rarely get the time to watch TV. We have enough tech so each kid can watch what they want whenever they want but I don’t have time. Until I shut off life and plant myself firmly in my bed to binge a season of my favourite show.
Thankfully Netflix has shared some great ways to mom sneak in an episode or two of our fave shows so maybe I won’t need to shut down life?
#MomSneak. Canuck moms have spoken: 95% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood, and now, over half (58%) admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, with some even hiding from their kids for just a moment of peace. With moms doing it anywhere and everywhere in the neighbourhood when the kids aren’t around, sneaking is the new bingeing.
How to Mom Sneak
First you need to print off this printable so the kids are entertained for a few minutes…just enough to watch an episode or two.
Next smuggle a tablet into the bathroom for a little GLOW during your morning routine, but be forewarned: distracted makeup application may result in a look as bold as one of the gorgeous ladies of the 80s.
And if you find yourself overstaying your welcome in the grocery store parking lot watching The Walking Dead, don’t feel guilty. As long as the ice cream doesn’t melt, no one will know your little sneak-ret.
Be the life of the party with all the pop culture knowledge you’ll accumulate sneaking—your friends will thank you for talking about something other than the kids. If anyone questions your motives, let them know that according to a recent Netflix survey moms are feeling less stressed and more refreshed and even 16% say it makes them feel like a better parent by sneaking “me-time.”
And dads, don’t feel left out. We know you need a break to sneak too.
