Have you got that Whigfield song now in your head! Did you know the dance?
It reminds me of the summer before I met Asa when I was on a holiday in Spain, it was playing everywhere!
Saturday Nights when I was younger was either going out for the night or working in the local pub, and then going out to a nightclub at 11 when I finished, these days however, my Saturday Nights are more likely to be sitting down with all the family to watch a movie.
8 FAMILY MOVIES TO WATCH TOGETHER
Parenthood isn’t just about ticking all the boxes- making sure all the homework’s done and you’re packing your kids healthy meals.

Time to grab some popcorn, log into Netflix, Disney + or grab the dvd and have a movie night with your kid!
Frozen is on top of the list and for many good reasons. This heartfelt story revolves around two princesses and teaches children about how it is important to express and embrace your emotions instead of bottling them up, and once that adventure is finished then settle down for part 2.
