The Mom Smartphone Lifeline!

Okay, I know we all need to spend less time on our cell phones, right? We need to put them down to enjoy childhood unplugged, or motherhood unplugged or whatever it is that the hashtag is right now.

I believe that.

I support that.

I also have to do a reality check because most of my business and my life are run from my phone.

Okay, I know we all need to spend less time on our cell phones, right? We need to put them down to enjoy childhood unplugged, or motherhood unplugged or whatever it is that the hashtag is right now.

I believe that.

I support that.

I also have to do a reality check because most of my business and my life are run from my phone.

Example: The other day in line for a prescription, I realized my insurance card was missing! I had to call and get the number from the insurance company to give the pharmacist.  I typed the number into my phone and was good to go. However, seconds later I realized I only had 1% battery left on my phone!

After driving around for hours doing errands and making calls I was out of battery! In a panic I scrambled for a pen to write the number down before my phone died. In this moment I wasn’t a mom who was checked out on social media, or addicted to my phone, or ignoring my kids.

In this moment I was just a MOM, a mom that things happen to.

As a mom, a smartphone phone can be a lifeline. Yes at times it can be a distraction from being present with our kids. That is true. We have to fight against that. But at other times our phones are a lifeline: giving us directions to get home safe, saving us time when we forget an important card or number, allowing us to pay bills and manage our homes and businesses.

We use our phones a LOT for essentials. And I’m the mom who drops her phone, my charger cord gets frayed, and I just have a lot of reasons why my phone isn’t fully charged.

Mother’s Day I got the BEST present ever. It has relieved so much of my incessant need to plug in every-time I’m near a power source. I had to share this gift with you. Gone are the days of lost cords and needing a charger for every room! And no more relying on the phone itself to hold up to the promised standard of a “longer batter life” pff…yeah right.

Enter: Mophie. This thing goes on my phone and doubles as a super cute phone case (I have it in pink so DUH), and it keeps my phone charged ALL DAY. And I mean it when I say all day. I have tested it’s limits! Phone calls, voxer, social media, you name it, I suck my battery DRY and it still has juice left at midnight! I even watch videos on there sometimes, and it holds up. You have to get one. That’s all. It’s a lifeline for your smartphone! Just get one and thank me later when you realize you don’t have to worry anymore about how you’re going to charge your phone midday or whether you brought the extra cord with you in the car.

You’re welcome…and thank you Mophie! All the heart eyes for you.
