Of course they can. If you're like me you love Netflix and watching with family is the best part....except for the incessant and sometimes impossible questions from two very curious kiddos. For example:
While watching Jurrasic School:
What colour is a meteor?
Did dinosaurs make nests?
Did dinosaurs eat tacos?
While watching The Magic School Bus:
How does that bus fly?
Does Ms. Frizzle have any kids?
What does orange smell like?
While watching Maleficent:
Do you think Angelina Jolie's portrayal of Maleficent conforms to earlier archetypal interpretations or does she offer the audience something more?
(I'm kidding, of course. Just checking to see if anyone really reads these posts. ;) I knew you guys were loyal.)
Now, it's not that I don't value that fact that my girls are curious by nature, and love learning. It's just that I totally resent their interupting the little time we have to cuddle up with some Netflix. I think I'll be investing in Google Home soon just to have someone else in the room to answer their never-ending questions.
If you'd like a chance to win three months of FREE Netflix for you and a friend, simple share this post and come back and let me know that you did here or on FB. (This contest is open to residents of Canada only).
I began obsessing over Mindy Lakefield's work when I stumbled across her on instagram.
I spent hours browsing her whimsical watercolours and finally had the courage to reach out and ask if I could take one of her classes. She let me jump right in and I invited my friend Sara along so we could create together. Mindy's online tutorials are wonderful. They are easy to follow and the results, well, what do you think? Are we star students?
I highly recommned you take one of these classes. With Halloween just around the corner, we had to work on these sweet little witches but you can work on whichever tutorial you like. Check with Mindy to see what's up next. Happy Creating!

Yael Drori of Add Colors To is one of the greatest graphic designers we've come across. Don't take my word for it though. Look at the slideshow of the stellar work below.
I adore the alphabet designs. I have the magnetic set in my classroom and my students use them for work work everyday.
Enjoy browsing this artist's shop. I'm sure you'll find something to love.
A mom like you.
