We enjoy having the option of downloading Netflix shows, and taking it with us when we are on-the-go! It totally helps us pack light when travelling - no need to take along DVDs! The downloaded shows and movies from Netflix certainly came in very handy numerous times during our long road trips this summer.

I am familiar with the overwhelming feelings and pressure associated with planning parties, especially when it is for close family. Although over the years, I have learned our dear ones especially our children just want to feel special, and no matter what we do it will make them feel happy. My home baked cakes, and handmade cards were way more appreciated than anything store bought!

Netflix launches the first "branching" narrative episode, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, in which the viewer gets to decide where to take the story next. Children have the opportunity to make choices and create non-linear adventures that will lead to two pre-determined main storylines. Buddy Thunderstruck (July 14) and Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout (next year) will be added to the "branching" narrative episodes.

As parents, we believe it is our duty to be good role models and inspire our sons and daughters to make a positive difference to society and the environment. Teaching that every little act makes a difference is becoming more and more important, especially in our fast-paced technology driven society. It is important that we take the time to slow down and see how we can benefit others, be more respectful, and conscientious.

Have you ever cheated on your binge-partner after agreeing to watch the shows together? While we would not want to always admit, I am sure many of us have occasionally cheated and watched an episode, two or all of the shows without waiting for our binge-partner. This has definitely happened in our home between the adults and children on more than one occasion!

We like shows that everyone in our family can enjoy watching together without feeling uncomfortable with the content that comes up. I am hoping Netflix will continue to update the selection with more nature shows, and movies and shows that we can watch, and learn about how wonderful our world is and about important things that could benefit us and those around us.

We are looking forward to watching Gilmore girls: A Year in the Life which will be available on Netflix November 25th. A recent Netflix Mother-Daughter Survey revealed more than half the women (53%) wish they spoke to their mother more often. The survey also revealed that more than half of mother-daughter duos surveyed (59%) report that post-show discussions are the best part of sharing a show together.

It is pumpkin season and we love it! It is one of our favourite harvests of the season. We usually enjoy it by making a savoury side dish, making soup with it, and baking whoopie pies and buns with it. This year my children got busy scooping out the seeds that we turned into a delicious snack to enjoy when watching Netflix.

I believe that most times siblings can manage to get along. While growing up with my siblings it was sometimes hard to decide what we wanted to watch. I think our age and gender played a role in what we enjoyed watching. Looking at my children grow up, I see that it is not always easy for them to settle on which shows they want to watch together either.
