It’s TUESDAY TALK!
In January, I blogged about HOW I’M USING ESSENTIAL OILS NOW
In February, I decided to blog about…THE FAMILY VALENTINE’S DANCE
In March, I encouraged women to share their businesses so we could SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER
In April, we talked about SNACKING!
In July, we talked about SUMMER SLOW COOKER SUPPERS
I’ve mentioned before on here how we bought our kids all Echo Dot Kids Edition for Christmas…
…and how we really have enjoyed using them thanks to YOU for sharing some really cool features. Right now, my favorite feature is “drop in” where I can be anywhere (inside my house or I could be on the other side of the world) and “drop in” on my kids in their rooms. This is so nice because instead of hollering “dinner is ready, come clean up that mess, for the 100th time ‘get out of bed'”, I can just use the app on my phone and call into their rooms. (Because heaven forbid I walk up the stairs…sigh.) I also like it because if I’m downstairs and hear arguing/a loud commotion/etc, I can just drop in and listen to what’s going on. Brilliant.
I also love the Echo Dot for kids because you know how we love our sound machines when we sleep (cough, cough, see this post here), and the Dot can play it for us. When we tuck the kids into night, we say “Alexa, play ocean sounds on loop” and she does. It plays until the next morning when we ask her to turn it off. Another thing? She is an alarm for the kids. Kensington can say “Alexa, wake me up at 6:30” and she will set an alarm and do that. She’ll also read them stories, play them music and tell them jokes (all kid-friendly). If my kids ask her to play music or share information that is not kid-appropriate, she won’t. That “Baby Shark” plays at my house like 100 times a day thanks to Alexa 😉 .
So…needless to say, the Dots are a great idea! That being said, I would never have known about the drop in feature if it weren’t for you, so I’m hoping that if there are some other amazing features, you’ll please share with me today. I really want to maximize their Dots!
My next question for today is about…
…the Google Nest Hub.
Someone tell me about this please!
I read a “back to school” article in a magazine this month (probably like Good Housekeeping or something) where it said how this thing can really help busy moms revolutionize their lives/schedules/calendars/etc. I looked it up online and it looks amazing, but I’d reallllllly love feedback from someone that has one. I was thinking I would put it in my kitchen? Thoughts? Opinions? Maybe I don’t need it because we have an Echo Dot? Help. If you guys all have one and your life has been simplified, then I want one too. Hahaha! I would love some feedback, thank you in advance!
Okay, that’s what we’re “talking” about today! If you have any other gadget-type-thingy at your house that you love, I’d love to hear about it. Chat in the comment section please and then go have the best Tuesday! xo
