I use my iPhone at home. I use my iPhone when I’m stuck in the carpool lane. I use my iPhone when my kids are occupied and ignoring me. And, okay, sometimes when they’re not. Maybe I just need a minute to myself in the midst of our chaotic family now and then.
And that iPhone? It makes me a better mom. Not only does my phone allow me to have a life and raise children, but it allows me to work on the go so we aren’t stuck at home all day. It allows me to stay in touch with friends and family. It allows me to quickly research things that could end up as disasters.
But, most importantly, it gives me a link to the world instead of keeping me isolated as a stay-at-home mom. I’m so much better at this than I was when my oldest was younger, and that’s not just about having more practice.
I have tools for better home management. I have a camera at all times. I have my grocery list wherever I go. I have regular contact with friends — both real and online. I have an outlet and a life.
All from that little phone in my back pocket.
