It’s nothing like being sick to realize that wanting mom, chicken noodle soup, and vegging in front of the TV are keys to a quicker recovery. Using Netflix for my recuperation helped me forget that I was sick for a time.
Pooh has always been a favorite for us. His optimistic outlook and bumbling ways were a source of amusement when both children were younger. As my children got older, I rescued the “baby toys” but I can still get them together when Pooh is on TV.
After watching the Adventures of Pooh, the PreTeen and I made up Mad Libs about the 100 Acre Wood. This was fun and educational at the same time. We took the characters from Pooh, added silly parts of the speech, and spent the afternoon making up stories about the show we just watched.
The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh may not have been what cured me, but it helped me get through a long Saturday afternoon of coughing.
