So it’s been, like, 3 months since half the people I know got an Amazon Echo for Christmas. Are you one of those people? Maybe you got a Google Home. I feel like this probably applies to you just the same.

Have we learned to turn our house into a “smart house”? Have we transformed our lives? Made them more efficient? No. We still forget things at the grocery store. I still send my kids out in 50 degree weather without a jacket. Still turning on and off all my lights with my hands like an episode of Little House On The Prarie…. err. You know. WE ARE NOT IN THE FUTURE YET.

Instead of Alexa bringing us into the future, every night I am transported to some suburb of hell where my children scream over each other in an attempt to get a robot’s attention.

Alexa's Not Bringing Us Into The Future Yet | BabyRabies.com

Leyna: “Alexa! Play the son-“
Kendall: “NO! Alexa is going to play MY song. Alexa, play-“
Leyna: “STOP IT. Alexa, stop. Play the song-“
Lowell: “ALEXXXXXXXXXXA PWAY MY SONG!”
Kendall: “Alexa, NO. Alexa, set a timer for 10 minutes because LOWELL IS GOING TO TIMEOUT.”
Leyna: “Alexa, where are the cookies?”

Alexa: “Playing ‘Cookie’ by R. Kelly.”

Me: “ALEXA, STOP. OMG.”

  1. The ONE and only benefit of infertility is these moments of beauty of having an only child!!!!!!!!! But that is seriously funny for anyone with more than one kid!

  2. We stayed with family over Christmas and they have an Alexa and OMG. I knew right then and there we’d never get one. It was pure hell to have 5 cousins screaming at her and Alexa sucks even worse than my own kids when it comes to listening to my mean mom voice say “ENOUGH!” That biotch just keeps going.

  • He demands cuddle time. Always has. It's inconvenient some days, but he's not about to let himself get lost in the shuffle. I'm glad he reminds me to slow down. #loloyolo
  • Sweet big baby 💙
  • Arlo chose Kendall when he was just 8 weeks old. They have a special bond. Looking forward to reuniting them after our @happy.loud.life RV trip around the country. Until then, Arlo is going to an amazing foster family who has promised to send us lots of pictures and updates.
  • Those eyes 😍
  • Meanwhile, this one turns 4 in 5 days. 😭😭😭 #timeisanasshole
  • A little sad he's almost too big for the @dockatot Deluxe+ and toy bar. Can you believe he's 7 months old now? 😫😭👋🏻 #dockatot
  • He always comes home in the middle of nap time and climbs in bed with us.
  • I always keep teething oil in my bag these days. He has FOUR top teeth trying to come through. 😫I try not to stick dirty fingers in his mouth, especially right after I pump gas. 🤢So I also keep some @handzies soap and water wipes with me. #inmypurse
