Netflix Flu Survival Guide - Evolved Mommy

Netflix Flu Survival Guide
Stephanie Funk

In Arkansas alone we’ve had 25 deaths from the flu this year, so naturally when I got the flu earlier this month I was certain I was dying. Thankfully, I did not. But let me tell you this… I was a couch-living zombie for at least four days (I can’t remember the exact number because I’m not sure how many I slept through).

What did I do other than sleep while I was drooling on the couch? Watch Netflix. Lots of Netflix. And the Queen Latifah show. She’s fun, y’all.

Thankfully, my daughter never caught the flu from me, but in case your littles do come down with something nasty this sickness season Netflix has put together a fun playlist for the pitiful kiddos.

Home Sick? Enjoy These 6 Titles on Netflix

Turn sniffles into giggles

1. Daddy Day Care
2. Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves
3. Hoodwinked Too!
4. Escape from Planet Earth
5. The Croods [coming to Netflix 1/29!]
6. Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2

As soon as your kiddos come down with the next nasty cold (hopefully not the flu) fire up the AppleTV and put The Croods on. Also, Beverly Hills Chihuahua is surprisingly captivating (even for adults… blame it on the fever).

Mom confession: I relish the sweet snuggles I get when my daughter is under the weather. Don’t judge. When she’s well she will only snuggle for 1.37 minutes before she’s off and running again.

Tell me…

What’s your go-to movie for sick kids? What about for yourself?
