Baby spiders and Netflix, take the wheel. (#StreamTeam)

^^^ Ryan reveling in his change to stay up past his bedtime watching Netflix when my sister and mom were here two weeks ago ^^^

Last night was crazy, and I really hope it doesn't repeat itself. Our fire alarms went off at 2:30am, 3:00am and 4:00am for what seemed to be no reason. We checked everything that could possibly give off smoke and nada. After the second time, we were bewildered to groggily discover that what looked to be easily one hundred baby spiders had hatched and were scurrying around the smoke detector, which Google had informed me could cause false alarms. The spiders were quite the sight, and we were quite the sight. 

As you would expect, sleep sorrily stayed away for most of the rest of the night. I had already kept Chris and I up late having a crying fit as I tend to have about all that has to be done over the next six weeks so to be woken up in a panic multiple times and then have two awoken boys in your bed that treat you like a playground and well-loved stuffed animal from 3:00am to 6:00am really made me rely on Netflix today without any guilt. 

Here are the movies that we've been had as our go-to selections on Netflix:

1) Prince of Egypt - the music is fantastic in this adaptation of the story of Moses. Ryan's fleeting and random theological musings while watching The Prince of Egypt definitely makes Chris, the theology nerd, smile.

2) Mulan - Ryan's current favorite song is currently, "I'll Make a Man Out of You," and he knows the words very well except that Make a Man is pronounced meck-a-man very assertively in his opinion. He also thinks that Shang's name is Meck-a-man. 

3) Hercules - I love picking up on the jokes in Hercules that went over my head when it was released when I was a child. For example:

Hercules talking to Meg: "And that Oedipus play! Man, and I thought I had problems"


I am part of the Netflix #StreamTeam so I will be writing one post a month about movies and shows that have made me happy to have in our family queue. To be totally forthcoming, I have been compensated with a streaming device and a one year streaming subscription to Netflix, but this is a service that I have used at minimum four times a week for the past four years (and at many points in the timeline, everyday) so you can say that I am definitely excited to be partnering with them. Woohoo!

And! In Hatch Prints news, I am running a free shipping sale until midnight PDT tonight (6/30)! Order by then and your shipping will be refunded. US orders only.
