I have soaked up every second of The Little Prince on Netflix. You? Heart-warming, eye-opening, and a reminder of what it’s like to be a child. A must watch for parents, both alone and with the kids, The Little Prince is just what we need to remind us to let loose and enjoy life, and so is the Grown-Up Test. 😉

Take the Grown-Up Test with your child and see if you are truly a grown-up, or a kid at heart. Netflix created this fun and unique quiz for parents and kids to take together. My answer was right on, “Only Slightly Grown-Up” which is exactly how I feel most days. 😀 What about you?
