5 Netflix Shows to Binge during Maternity Leave
1. Grace and Frankie (Funny, mindless)
I started this show during the last week of pregnancy and oh man did I fall in love with the entire cast. Grace and Frankie have always been rivals until their law firm partner husbands tell them they have fallen in love with one another and want to get married. Grace and Frankie move in together, and oh are they opposites! I LOVE this show, it is full of humor, love, family and friendship. It's easy to watch and episodes are quick!
2. Parks and Recreation
Tom and I started this after friends, so its our show that we watch when he's home from work. It is hilarious, uplifting and so sweet to watch relationships evolve. A new that works for the Parks and Recreation department tries to beautify their town...or at least one of them tries to.
3. Once Upon A Time
A modern twist on our childhood fairytales - this is ADDICTING.
I mean, do I need to explain why? I had never seen Friends before and started it during my first trimester of pregnancy when all I could do was lay in bed and suck on lemon candies. Needles to say, I am watching it all over again...
5. New Girl
This is light, SO funny, sweet and SO easy to watch. I feel like its the “Modern day” friends. A group of people who connect through Craigslist apartment search become life long friends and some even form romantic relationships.
Hug your baby, let them sleep in your arms if you have to. Don’t forget a jug of water and snack, ENJOY mama - you have deserved it.
