What Sluiter Nation is Watching

Spring was here for three seconds, and then it got cold again. Plus we have had a lot of rain. And also Alice and I are home a lot in the afternoons because of maternity leave.  Needless to say, lots of Netflix watching is going on around here.

Today you get the lowdown on what each of us is currently obsessed with watching.

Eddie: Eddie has quite a few favorites. He is probably our most avid Netflix user. He has even learned that if he types “Disney” into the search feature, he can find all movies he likes. His top pick lately is Phineas and Ferb, but he also comes back to Woody Woodpecker (much to my chagrin).

This past week he found Pokemon, though, and I thought my head would explode. Despite my initial groaning about the dorkiness, two good things have come from it. One, it actually has some pretty positive messages which I am Ok with, and two, Eddie has started going downstairs to watch his shows down there before bedtime. In doing so, he has started doing “art” while he watches. All by himself.  This is sort of a big deal because up until now, Eddie has had a horribly hard time playing alone. The alone time away from his younger siblings has been good for him and his attitude.

He also discovered The Gruffalo which is totally cute and sort of funny. I approve this most of all because I don’t mind watching it with him.

Charlie: This guy has a bit of hard time branching out. He is very much still in a relationship with Curious George, but lately he has found room in his heart for Chuggington and Peep and the Big Wide World. Eddie also got Charlie to be Ok with watching Veggie Tales, which I find to be super cute and funny too.

Katie and Alice: We are a packaged deal because A) Alice doesn’t have her own profile on Netflix yet and B) if I’m watching TV, so is she. Usually. Unless she is sleeping. I am still working through Friends although I am on season 9, so I am almost done. I talked about what is on my To Watch List before, but I think I am adding Bloodline to that list as well. I like a good dark drama. In fact, it sounds a lot like the plot lines of some of my favorite novels: messed up family with messed up secrets tries to keep the secrets secret.

Cortney: It’s baseball season. This guy does not have Netflix on his radar. And even if he did, other people are always using it, so he is out of luck. Sorry, honey.

I’ve had a lot of people make suggestions for Cortney and me, but what about kid shows/movies. I feel like my kids get stuck in a rut. Especially Charlie. Did I mention he likes what he likes and is pretty stubborn about it?
