binge watch


This has been such an intense flu season. Everywhere you turn, someone else is sick! Have the cooties gotten to you, yet? If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of being so sick you can’t get out of bed, may we suggest...

  1. tea  
  2. steam
  3. binge watching TV shows.

While we would love to reach through the screen and hand you a hot cup of tea, that’s physically impossible. We do however, have a killer list of shows that would be great to binge watch while sick. Behold!


Top Ten Shows To Binge Watch When You’re Sick


1) Stranger Things- Sure you feel miserable, but you’re going to be glad you’re stuck in bed for hours once you really dive into this show! Think sci-fi meets, x-files, meets Goonies. It’s good. “In a small town where everyone knows everyone, a peculiar incident starts a chain of events that leads to the disappearance of a child - which begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community.”

2) Gilmore Girls- Brain candy. Sweet, sweet brain candy. Get sucked into the sugar coated Stars Hollow drama while you’re waiting for those decongestants to set in.

3) 30 Rock- Tina Fey is amazing. That is all.

4) Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman- Every episode of this guilty pleasure is available on Amazon Prime. Hours upon hours of Sully’s outrageous bangs. You can thank us later.

5) Call The Midwife - “Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth; the story follows twenty-two year old Jenny, who in 1957 leaves her comfortable home to become a midwife in London's East End.”

6) Sherlock- This absolute masterpiece consists of three or four 90 minute episodes a season. Well written and provocative. Perfect for those who want something a little more substantial to binge on.

7) The 100- Exciting, suspenseful, and maybe just a little cheesy. “Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.”

8) Always Sunny In Philadelphia- Funny and irreverent. Be sure the kids aren’t in the room when your binge session begins!

9) Stand Up Comedy— Ali Wong: Baby Cobra. Do you need a good laugh and brain candy? Of course you do! You're sick in bed. Enter: Stand Up Comedy. Netflix is loaded with one hour comedy specials. If you’re not easily offended and your kiddos aren’t around, we recommend Ali Wong: Baby Cobra. Hilarious!

10) Fixer Upper - America's sweethearts, Chip and Joanna, can make anyone feel better with their goofiness, creativity, and superb taste. Bonus points for being a family friendly show.

Top Ten Tuesday: What Parents Really Want For Valentine's Day

TTT valentines 2017


Oh, Valentine's Day... On one hand, it's always awesome to celebrate love. Who wouldn't want to set aside a whole day to reflect on how great love is? On the other hand, Valentine's Day can sometimes feel cheesy or forced. When your kids or significant other ask you what you want for Valentine's Day, what do you say? Heck, do you even know what you're getting your loved one? You're hardly capable of remembering to put on shoes before you leave the house let alone craft anything. Have no fear! The Fred Parent team is here!


Top Ten Things Parents Really Want For Valentine’s Day

1 Sleep- I mean, this goes without saying right? Kind of a softball answer, but it's just so true! In a nutshell, Let us sleep undisturbed so long that we wake up disoriented and unsure of what day it is.


2 A cup of coffee that will never get cold- We can all dream, right? Wasn't there a spell in Harry Potter for this?


3 Time alone- Even for just an hour. That blessed alone time will give our minds a chance to focus and reset. Trust us. It's necessary.


4 Time with each other- Because we also need some one-on-one with the person we love the most.


5 Something the kids made- There is nothing sweeter than a gift from the kids! We will cherish those little handmade cards and necklaces FOREVER.


6 Words from the heart - While flowers and candy are nice, we really want words of affirmation. Let us know we're doing a good job as a mom or at work. Tell us you love our snort laugh and that our Netflix queue is genuis. Bonus points if you write it in a letter.


7 For our most hated chore to be done- Scrub the bathroom, mop the floors, or vacuum the car all without complaining. Swoon!


8 A judgment free hour at Target with a cup of coffee. It’s the simple things in life, right?


9 A clean, clutter free home. - We totally get that it will only last 3 seconds, but it will be an amazing 3 seconds! We may even post pictures of it on Instagram. You know, just in case we forget what it looks like.

10 An elephant the size of a puppy. - Adorable! Also a little inside joke from our Facebook Page. Drop in and say hi!
