I am the queen of something that has now taken traction all over the internet as a real ‘thing’ and I am super proud to say that I have not only mastered it, but I do it on a daily basis too! It is noted as the “MomSneak” the mother of all sneaks, the ability to watch episodes upon episodes of Netflix films and shows while the children are around without them actually cluing into it. This new wave of honour has me super-excited that I am not alone in the binge watching sphere – in fact there is a whole society of us!
So what is a mom sneak anyhow?
#MomSneak. Canuck moms have spoken: 95% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood, and now, over half (58%) admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, with some even hiding from their kids for just a moment of peace. With moms doing it anywhere and everywhere in the neighbourhood when the kids aren’t around, sneaking is the new bingeing.
Admittedly, having the convenience of electronics at our fingertips as well as a good pair of earphones makes sneaking some ‘Friends From College’ while my children are occupied in the backyard, or watching their own shows on the big screen easy and oh SOOOOOO GOOD! Not to mention with the new download option, Netflix has me loving the private screen time while we beach too. My kids have NO clue that I am watching while doing my regular daily activities- I won’t tell if you don’t!
If you are not onto the whole #MomSneak craze, I highly suggest you start (like now) I can almost guarentee that it will make you a happier mama, and overall connected to the world out there that actually has a little time on their hands to keep up with the latest releases too. Come’on try it – I know you’ll like it 😉
For those of you who do watch sneakily, what are you streaming now?
