Netflix Trick: Early New Year Countdown for Kids

If you have very young children, like me - then you know it's usually not such a great idea to keep them up past midnight! Sure, there are some toddlers who can somehow stay awake until then in a bright mood, but I don't know a lot of them. For most parents, it's not a matter of being strict - it's a matter of not wanting to deal with an overtired, grumpy, sensitive or even hyper toddler (they get super hyper sometimes when they're overtired) until midnight, if they don't just pass out before then and miss the countdown action. Not a very festive atmosphere, let's say. Not to mention the fact that many parents are also pretty done in before then. So how do you make your New Year celebration actually Happy? Netflix has a hack for a parent-friendly Happy New Year's Eve! They are providing a streaming "New Year's Eve countdown" for your little ones that you can watch AT ANY TIME. It's an on demand 3-minute special featuring King Julien the lemur (from a Netflix original show) that allows you to play the faux countdown at whatever time you want "midnight" to be! Would you use this countdown trick? Do your very young children stay up until midnight on New Year's Eve?

4 Dumb Viral Videos You Totally Forgot About Until Now
You're welcome. 1. He Man Says Hey I have this long-standing theory that this video in particular is the center of the internet. Seriously, it shows up when you least expect it. In fact this video was what triggered this post. I thought, "Oh God. It's back." Why It Went Viral: Because like, it's ridiculous, and accurate. The remix of "What's Going On" by 4 Non Blondes is hilarious, and the video is perfectly in-synch. And I mean perfect. It's flawless. Which makes you wonder why someone put so much effort into something so dumb. Favorite Moment: When the music is playing outside of the kitchen and He-man's cook is just stirring a pot, casually. View Count: 62, 917,000 2. Too Many Cooks This is possibly the longest video to ever go viral. In 2015 audiences everywhere were baffled by the mystique of Too Many Cooks. This is honestly one of the strangest things I've ever seen. Seriously, it goes on forever, and you have to watch the whole thing or else you'll miss the point entirely. It appears to be a clever satire on opening title sequences of sitcoms, but evolves into...well...I'll just let you watch it. Why It Went Viral: IT WAS REALLY EFFING WEIRD. Plus, the fact that it goes on forever makes it that much funnier. Watching this with your friends is probably the best thing ever, because it's really reaction oriented. View Count: 9,357,000 3. You Forgot Blueberries This video was shown to me Sophomore year of high school, and as soon as people sat down, they were watching for my reaction. That's how you know you're in for a video that either A. has something to do with someone getting hurt, or B. has a surprise ending. This one has both of those elements. Why It Went Viral: This video has a bunch of catchphrases like "You forgot Blueberries" "It's Yummah" and of course "Blue Berries Blueberrrieessss". The slow motion at the end is clutch, and you can't go wrong with a genuine video surrounding people accidentally hurting themselves. Favorite Moment: The end, duh. And recognizing how annoying little sisters can be haha View Count: 18, 019, 000 4. Scarlet Takes A Tumble Seriously, best. Ever. Why it Went Viral: Because like.....just watch it. Favorite moment: After the crazy ending, when she's rolling around screaming in pain. Sorry if that's harsh, it's just classic. View Count: 24,316,000 Which one is your favorite!? And what viral video still makes you laugh?
What Are The Ridiculous Reasons Why These Kids Are Crying?
If you've ever babysat, parented, or pretty much existed within the general vicinity of a child for more than two minutes, you probably know that babies cry for the most nonsensical reasons. So do parents using Snapchat, who take that 24/7 baby-documenting that social media moms and dads are notorious for to a whole new level. They take a picture of their kid crying, they caption it with exactly WHY they're crying, share the picture, and boom. Instant hilarity. This is why people get convinced that babies and drunk adults are the same. Hey, you've got to let them teethe somehow, right? To be fair, waiting for freshly baked things to cool down is pretty much the worst. If it's a single-digit AM number, I'd be like this too. Imagine all the possibilities if you COULD though. He's not REALLY bad. Just a little misunderstood, right? Cue that 'Game Of Thrones' chant: "Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!" It's okay. She's going to be grateful she didn't when she's older. I'd probably collapse on the floor too. The freakin' PRESIDENT! Hey, it doesn't mean he can't be upset! I feel like a LOT of little girls think they can marry their dads. I know some grown men that would cry because of this too. I appreciate how easy it is to entertain kids. "Here's a tampon." I like that he's all ready with his little fork too. Okay, but this picture actually made me want a pet lobster. Go away, brother! You're ruining the ambiance! This girl just needs to grab control of her life. AND her fork for that matter. So have you been around a little one who cried for stupid reasons? Or maybe YOU were that little one? I know my dad always reminded me of the first time he shaved off his mustache. I cried for hours because he didn't look like my dad anymore! @VIPFreak2NE1 @YumiMiyazaki @TurtleyTurtles @AlexTalley @atmi @CelinaGonzalez @iixel @humairaa @LysetteMartinez @drummergirl691 @ZoilaObregon @AnimeFan4Evr @SarahRegulski @poeticandfunny @tokyo514 @Outcastname @RachelParker @FrankilliMambo @EasternShell @supbroscene @Baoyi @VeronicaArtino @YunBao @buddyesd @HandsomeBacon
