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?
