Netflix Stream Team: April

This months #StreamTeam theme(hey, I made that up AND it rhymed!)is Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire. It got me thinking about the world and all of the untruths out there. The gossip. The tabloids. And the internet. The internet can be a funny thing...social media makes it easy to share every bit of your life, the good and the bad. Yet, it seems we post most of the good(I mean, its not fun to share that time when your kid pooped in his diaper and then stuck his hand in it. Oh, and of course smeared it into the carpet. Yum.) So the internet is a place of perceptions and sometimes an alternate universe where your house is always clean, your kids are always smiling and everything you bake turns out amazing. Unfortunately, the world wide web can also be a place where things are distorted and lies are told. There is a hilarious episode of one of my kids favorite shows, Jessie, about this very situation(but sadly, this really does happen!) Its Season 1, Episode 14: The world wide web of lies. An innocent photo posted on the internet gets twisted into something its not and what ensues makes for some pretty good entertainment. Because we don't have cable, Netflix streaming is my kids TV! I love that we can pick and choose shows we find appropriate for them to watch and I don't have to worry about commercials that are violent or have sexual innuendos. Jessie has been one of the fun shows that my older girls watch and my younger ones can be in the room and I don't have to worry. Totally appropriate for them to be around though they aren't completely interested in that quite yet. I highly recommend checking out this show if you have kids 8 and up if you haven't already. Its pretty darn funny...even to me :) And I may or may not know all the words to the intro song. And I may or may not have made up my own dance moves to it too...

I bet those moves are pretty awesome, too. Haha. ;-) Yeah I seen a few episodes of Jessie; it's a pretty cute show. Definitely something I would have loved watching as a kid.
