Netflix -Summer Brain-Power Boost #streamteam

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Netflix.

Let's watch a documentary, said no one ever.

But your kids have been off from school for about 6 weeks and won't return for another 6 weeks weeks or so and you're ready. for. a. break.

So take a cue from Betty Draper and pour yourself a glass a of wine and grab your smokes. Proceed to your room, plop yourself on the bed (careful not to mess up the brocade bedspread) and when little Sally comes a knockin' tell her you need to rest.

Direct her to the rumpus room where she can amuse herself and Little Bobby too, with some great titles from Netflix.

In keeping with this month's brain boosting theme, here are some of Bobby's favorites:

1. The Great Mouse Detective
2. Busytown Mysteries
3. LeapFrog: Math Adventures to the Moon
4. Turtle: The Incredible Journey
5. The Magic School Bus

And some for Sally and the older kids:

1. Lewis & Clark: The Journey Out West
2. Walking with Dinosaurs
3. Secret Yellowstone
4. The Blue Planet
5. When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions

School may be out, but learning doesn’t have to be. Give your little ones a summer brain-power boost by introducing them to something new with Netflix.

When Sally and Bobby are fast asleep, fix Don another extra dry martin and take a look at some great titles available for adults, including Blackfish, Food, Inc. and Mitt.

Can you guess what I'm watching on Netflix this month?

Smart Tips for Avoiding Summer Bugs

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, however all opinions are my own.

Ahhh summer!

It would be perfect if not for those pesky mosquitoes.

They carry all sorts of diseases and are just annoying in general.

Reduce your risks by taking precautions to prevent bug bites this summer.

  • Apply insect repellent BEFORE going into areas where you may come in contact with mosquitoes
  • Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats
  • Wear light colored clothing
  • Avoid going barefooted outdoors
  • Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors
  • Always close car windows
  • Limit your time outdoors during the hours between dusk and dawn
If you've taken all the precautions and still get bit, try applying vinegar to the area to relieve the itch.
