In the realm of motherhood, anything goes. Anything. Which is why the different ways moms sneak Netflix into their days should come as no surprise. Consider it Mom Code for “sanity break”.
In fact, tell me if any of these scenarios sound familiar when you’re trying to catch up on the past three seasons of Orange is the New Black before the spoilers for the new season plaster your Twitter feed. (And then scroll down to see how I sneak in my binge-watching.)
There is no shame in the mom-bathroom-bingeing game. Catching up on The Crown while literally sitting on the throne will have you looking forward to those daily constitutionals.
Moms are already in the bathroom so what’s a few more minutes while puttering through your beauty routine? Be forewarned: applying liquid eyeliner during intense scenes in Scandal may result in a scandalous scene of your own.
When you can’t beat the carpool lineup, join it. Cue up some lighter fare like Gilmore Girls while you’re waiting for the kids to get out of camp or (gasp!) school.
Whether you’re at the gym or in the basement, sweating it out never felt so good when you’ve got an action-packed episode of Marvel’s Jessica Jones queued up and ready to go.
I promised I’d share how I sneak in my Netflix. I’ve been known to press “play” while brushing my teeth, cooking or checking emails. But with the kids home for the summer I’ve had to get a little more creative. Watch below to see how I tried to escape for just a few moments to catch up on the newest episodes of Suits.
