I am a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam and this is a sponsored post and I was compensated. However, all opinions are 100% mine. I always wanted to be a mom. For as long as I can remember, I wanted kids. I was thrilled when I finally got my wish. But they say to be careful what you wish for, right?! Why was I not told how dang hard it could be?
Do not get me wrong! I love my kids. It is just a tough job to be a mom. I find it hard to find time for myself. Can you relate? Who knew I would be searching for creative ways mom can sneak in time for themselves? One of my favorite things to do when I get a few minutes to myself is watch my favorite shows on Netflix.
It turns out I am not alone! In fact, 71% of moms have said they also sneak TV “me-time.” When you are juggling a busy schedule, it can be hard to get a few minutes of quiet time, right? When the kids are not around, us moms are finding hilarious ways to #MomSneak in their favorite Netflix shows. Here are a few ways they are doing it!
I take my phone to the gym. it is how I listen to music when I work out. I will admit at the end of the work out, I will drag my feet a bit. I love to sit in the massage chairs and sneak in a few minutes of Orange of the New Black!
On occasion, I have snuck my tablet in while I was getting ready in the morning. I may have drawn on a crooked eyebrow or not got my lip liner on straight, but I knew what happened on 13 Reasons Why!
I am a night owl. There are night I have stayed up all night bingeing on a Netflix show I needed to catch up on. This week, I binged both seasons on Broadchurch in one night. Ouch!
One of my least favorite mom chores is picking up the kids from school. Those carpool lanes can be brutally long! When I am stuck in that boring line, I will grab my phone and pull up my Netflix app. I have been able to #MomSneak quite a few shows this way!
OK, let’s get real. How many of you have taken a bit longer in the bathroom than necessary? I have taken my tablet in and gotten in a few extra minutes of screen time! My daughter is a huge offender of this one! And with one bathroom, it can get tricky with this one!
Do not feel bad about handing off the baby to your hubby or a friend to get in that last episode of GLOW! Trust me, it is a show I could watch over and over again!
