Disney Junior

Can you believe summer is just around the corner? Finally the sun is starting to shine around here and we are having less rainy days. Yay! The month of May is filled with excitement and holidays like Mother’s Day and Victoria Day long weekend. These are great opportunities to get together as a family and have fun.

This month, Disney Junior has some very exciting programming that I can’t wait to share with you. New episodes of Sofia the First, special shows and episodes just for Mother’a Day and the premier of the movie Tangled. So much fun!

Sofia the First

· Sofia The First: New Episodes!

We love Sofia the First, it is such a magical and enchanting show. Something I really like about it is that there is always some sort of lesson that is taught in each episode; usually something relatable that we can discuss with our children.

Sofia the First’s brand new episodes will air starting on Sunday May 5 and 19 at 11:30am ET.  The premier episode will feature Sofia finding out what being a true princess is all about when she is sidetracked on her way to an important Princess test at her school.

Then on Sunday, May 19 at 11:30am ET, the Sofia the First episode “Baileywick’s Day Off” will premiere! Baileywick’s day-off is frustrated by demands from Sofia, Amber and James until the royal siblings learn an important lesson in gratitude.

Gratitude can be sometimes tricky to teach but it’s something that must be reinforced with our children. I truly believe that if you start early and instill those values when they are young then it’s going to be a lot easier than when they are older.  You can start with the small things like ensuring your little one says “Thank you” every time they get help or are given something.

Mother's Day

· Mother’s Day on the Disney Junior Channel

Mother’s Day is on Sunday May 12th. Starting at 9am ET Disney Junior is celebrating our special day with some very special programming all morning long!
