10 Ways to Spend More Time in Nature

You might dislike nature. It’s the home of mud, bugs, and sunburns. It’s also the home of beautiful views, fresh air, and wonderful fragrances. You might dislike nature, but on the other hand, you might love it. Whatever your feelings about nature, you know you should be…

What To Post About On Your Mom Blog About Your Family’s RV Trip

If you run a mom blog, you should know full well that a family RV trip is far too big of an opportunity to pass up to write about.

Adorable flower girl dresses to choose from

As the music rises and your guests’ heads start to turn, they’ll be delighted to see the cutest little members of the wedding party start making their way down the aisle.

The tradition…

In our household, we often refer to our Echo device as "she-who-shall-not-be-named." This isn't because Alexa is evil (although I've had my fair share of arguments with her). It is because she is always listening to us. We've learned not to use her name unless we need to.

As I've mentioned before, my son has learned how to interact with our home device by example: He asks her the weather and asks for alarms (like I do), asks for music (like we all do) and makes announcements throughout the household (like his Daddy does). He has never (thankfully) asked for his own device.

And I am not sure I would give him his own device if he ever did ask for one, even though they've started making devices for children now. I don't think he has a reason for needing one, even though the devices for children do encourage the use of the word "please."

In the meantime, we still explore the ways that our device fits into our home: She tells bad jokes, she defines words and she sometimes randomly interjects into conversations even though no one was talking to her. I know that it is still early days for home devices, and it is hard to think through all the ways they will be used in the future.

For now I can say that we will share one. And we will not say her name aloud unless we need her.

Would you get your child their own personal device? Why or why not? Tell me in the comments.
