Cheers to You, Disney+


Disney+ - Boston MomsI’m working from home, and daycare is closed. I feel like the Dr. Seuss character from “Green Eggs and Ham” working from the deck, from the chair, laptop here, and phone calls there.

The only reason I’m able to write this right now is Disney+.

When Disney+ first came out, there was no question of whether we would get it or not. Not only did it have Disney, Marvel, AND throwback shows and movies my husband and I grew up with (I’m looking at you, “Boy Meets World” and “Brink”), we loved the idea of having the Disney classics available for our son to watch.

My son is almost 2 and is at the point where he wants to know what everyone is doing and be a part of it. He colored at the table next to me this morning calling it “his work.” Let’s face it, though, a toddler can only color for so long.

That’s where Disney+ comes in.

We’ve watched the “Toy Story” collection and ALL the shorts so many times my husband jokes that if we ever saw analytics of who watches what, we’d be at the top of the list for Woody and Buzz.

So while we deal with social distancing and working remotely and keeping it together, I say thank you. Thank you, Disney+, for keeping me sane, entertaining my son, and giving us a feeling of nostalgia all at once!
