Family is What You Make It- What to Watch on Netflix- May, 2015!

gfIn honor of Netflix’s new original series, Grace and Frankie, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston- the women, whose husbands leave them after 20 years of marriage—to be WITH EACH OTHER—and end up finding a way to get through it not alone, but together, and create a new blended family, this month’s Stream Team blog is about family (duh!). It’s not always about blood. Family is what you make it. With Mother’s Day just a few short days away, of course, this was something already on my mind.

My favorite show of ALL TIME (and I love a lot of shows, y’all) is Gilmore Girls (all seasons now streaming on Netflix). Although, growing up, I never really imagined myself with kids, I thought, if I HAD to procreate, I wanted to have a little girl, and I wanted the relationship to be like that of Lorelai and Rory. My uterus had other ideas.

Never in a million years did I picture myself the mother of not one, but TWO crazy little boys. I don’t do sports. I don’t like dirt. I love makeup, soap operas, and Disney princesses. What in the WORLD was I going to do with boys? Would I survive? Would I be able to do it? Would I lose my mind trying? I had NO idea, and I certainly never imagined having to figure all of this out without the help of my own mother.

Don’t feel bad for me, though! This Mother’s Day, I’m not feeling sad. Like Grace and Frankie, and like everyone else in the world, we find a way to persevere. We find and create our own little support system, and even if there is no blood, the bonds are just as strong.  Me and my boys? I couldn’t picture it any other way!

And as far as the Gilmore Girls relationship? Well, I’m perfectly okay with binge-watching to get my fix of that on Netflix.

You can stream all seasons of Gilmore Girls on Netflix now, and all episodes of Grace & Frankie beginning May 8!
