Mommas, how you hanging in there this summer? I get it… some days are ROUGH with the kids home, a more lax schedule, travel plans, heat… the list goes on! <— It makes me tired just typing that! Days are longer and just kind of a hot mess in general, so I’m all about making life as easy as possible.
One thing we love to do is watch a good movie. I know, I know, but screentime, Val… but honestly, I find that for my two big kids, neither of whom naps anymore, really need some time in the afternoons to relax and recharge, even if it is while watching a movie. We are stuck at home in the afternoons because Emmy still takes a monster afternoon nap. So I find that an EASY way to survive the early afternoon is to pop a pizza in the oven for the kids for lunch, then pop on a movie for some R&R for the kids.

We love Red Baron pizza – cheese for the kids, always! It doesn’t get any easier than popping it in the oven and having a meal that the kids actually like ready in less than 20 minutes. One little trick that my kids love is to eat their pizza cut into strips versus cut into triangular pieces. Add a side of ranch and they’re in heaven!
For 40+ years, Red Baron Pizza has helped moms calm mealtime chaos their Classic Crust pizza – it’s not too thick, not too thin and my babes love the with a crispy, flaky crust. Bonus that they’re available in 11 different flavors – we always keep one in the freezer for a last-minute crowd-pleasing meal!
Here’s a list of the best summer movies for kids – perfect for after pizza 😉
