Family Is What You Make It #StreamTeam

The family dynamic has certainly changed from my elementary school days. Our dinner table conversations often revolve around plans with extended family, discussion on what life was like when we were kids with our parents, and my kids trying to figure out which aunty is who’s sister and how that all works. Of course, there’s also discussion on how some friends live with just mom, or share two houses because their parents are divorced, or have step-siblings. We’ve talked adoption, we’ve even touched on surrogacy and IVF. It’s a weighty topic for a weeknight dinner, but some of our best discussions happen there.

Full House on Netflix CanadaI was thrilled when I heard Full House is now on Netflix! Debuting in 1987, I was ten years old when I first started watching the Tanner family, along with Uncle Jesse, Joey and of course Aunt Becky navigate life without mom. It was an interesting look at family back in 1987 and it was a huge hit. I’m so happy that I can share this part of my childhood with my own kids. They’ve actually jumped ahead on me and watched several episodes ahead of where we started on their own time, which makes me smile. Have mercy, they love it!

Here’s a look at popular family titles on Netflix for May:

  • I have to admit I haven’t seen this but now I really want to! It sounds cute and with a good message!

  • I can’t wait to watch some of the old episodes of Full House…. my sisters and I used to watch it together all the time growing up. Definite nostalgia!

  • I remember watching episodes of Full House when I was growing up. It was a great, family-oriented show.

  • I don’t have Netflix yet but I will be getting it when the reboot comes out! (I’m so excited!) I have already watched all the seasons with my oldest and I am so overjoyed I get to rematch something that I loved as a child, he now loves it too
