This Sunday is Mother’s Day. If you’ve forgotten, it’s not too late for a last minute gift. Can’t forget about Mama! Our superhero! But if your mother’s idea of a dreamy Mother’s Day is being served breakfast in bed and being allowed to lollygag, well why not snuggle up next to her and go on a Netflix binge? We’ve paired up with the streaming service once more to provide you the perfect list of shows and movies to enjoy with Mom. 

Wild Oats

One Day at a Time

This Netflix original series is a perfectly mastered reboot of the 70s sitcom we all know and love. In the updated version, Penelope and her Cuban-American family navigate the roller coaster of life. This is the perfect light-hearted, family centered comedy that looks at how loved ones make life worthwhile.

Little Women

An oldie but a goodie, but really who gets tired of this adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott classic? Four sisters and their mother battle life’s vicissitudes in Civil War-era America after their father leaves. A classic, holiday tale starring favorites Winona Ryder and Kirsten Dunst.

Call the Midwife

 If you haven’t caught this heartwarming juggernaut of emotions on PBS, catch up on Netflix.
