Taking a family vacation with your kids isn’t easy. Who’s with me? Okay, everyone. But you know what really helps? If you can keep your kids on their home routine, it will help you TREMENDOUSLY. That’s not entirely possible, I get it. But, if my kids have their pre-bedtime Wizards of Waverly Place, they will be good to go. Oh, Selena Gomez, you have such an effect on my boys. What if I told you that you could access your home TV on your iPad while on vacation? How cool is that?
It’s called TV Everywhere, and it’s brilliant. You need a Sling Loaded DVR or a Sling Loaded adapter hooked up to your DVR. The results are slingtabulous. You will be able to record shows while you are away, watch prerecorded shows wherever your winter break takes you (don’t get carried away, you need wifi after all!), and watch live TV exactly as you would at home. Except you’re not home, but it feels like you are to the kids. Is that not awesome? If you’re an Android person, fear not. It works on Android devices as well.
The best part? When the kids are asleep, my husband and I can snuggle up and watch Storage Wars. Don’t even tell me that the show is rigged. I thought it was real! It’s called “reality television” after all. I may have to disregard the accusations. Will you please pass the popcorn??
