If you could okay Google parenting

okay google parenting

I have to say…okay Google is a pretty handy thing to have around when you’re a mum with your hands are full. Okay google…what’s the weather going to be like today? Okay google…call granny. Okay google…keep my daughter entertained whilst we play the “okay google everything game!”.

But it got me thinking – while there are some things you should never use google to do as a parent –  wouldn’t it be amazeballs if one day this whole voice recognition malarkey just went that little bit further than just executing basic demands on the internet and phone for us….you know, what if we could okay google parenting!

Just imagine the scene…

You wake up bleary eyes to the yowls of a baby….you utter, “okay google, warm the bottle”. Just imagine how many more minutes that would buy you in bed. Yup you would practically be doing a happy dance in bed!


You’ve got a loaded nappy full of s***, imagine if you could just muse….”okay google, strip and dump the nappy”. Oh sweet relief! You know you would totally be feeling like this, rather than a poonami schmuck.Otherwise known as #winninginlife.


You’ve got a head like hell, and counting down to wine o’clock. You have to muster up the energy to put dinner on the table somehow…but how? And then, like an angel of salvation you plead “okay google, put the family’s dinner on the table”. And in your head, you would totally be doing one of these…


You’ve got your hands covered in chicken juice as your preschooler announces at the top of their voice they’ve done a really bad turd, and their butt needs wiping. Imagine the wave of relief that would engulf you as you sweetly murmured, “okay google, go wipe their butt”. No freakin’ out…just looking as smug as this with your kick ass google prowess..

OK quite clearly we are probably eons away from the reality of that happening. More likely what we need is a fairy godmother, or a nanny, or both. But there’s nothing wrong with a little okay-google daydreaming..is there?

  1. Love this. It’s probably many, many years off but it would be brilliant! I would have loads of babies if Google could change their nappies, lol xx

  2. Hehe, well we can dream, can’t we?! My mind is running wild with what I would use my ‘Okay google’ for now. How about ‘Okay google, take the kids to school’ or ‘Okay, google, get the ironing done’? The possibilities are endless! #CoolMumClub

  3. If only!! I would definitely sign up for this no matter the cost. Fingers crossed AI takes off soon and we can get all the robots doing the hard graft!! #coolmumclub

  4. Haha, Google parenting would be living the dream! This is why all those rich celebs with a gaggle of children, still look immaculate and amazing. They have a team of Googles! #CoolMumClub

  5. Ha, love it! I’d definitely have that Google cooking up a family meal every day of the week…Google, can you make the KIDS EAT THE MEAL TOO please! 😉

    You nailed it with the comedy GIFs…Nice work #coolmumclub co-host with the most xx

  6. Oh I would love my Okay Google to do this. Although I have trained my son to only accept a nappy change from his grandad if he’s visiting. It’s a few less a month I have to deal with 😉 #coolmumclub

  7. YESSS! If only life was as easy as asking google! But then I guess we wouldn’t learn all the lovely things we do along the way. Well we wouldn’t need to! Love a light-hearted post that helps me to escape!

    Amina xx #coolmumclub

  8. I think this invention would also be known as a robot! Surely in this day & age we should all be able to have a family robot that helps us out like this from time to time?!
    Funny post. A great read! #coolmumclub

  9. Haha yep wouldn’t this just be the finest thing! I have always moaned that I’d like a house keeper to do all the cleaning, washing, ironing, shopping and cooking. I’d happily do the rest of it 😉 xx

  10. Well I think we can officially say I’m definitely either Patsy or Eddie (though I think Patsy’s a bit more switched on maybe?) because I’d NEVER HEARD OF OKAY GOOGLE til I read your post! I actually thought you’d left okay in the title by accident! Duh. Okay Google clean my entire house and write the next six months of blog posts. Def daydreaming there… #coolmumclub
