Ssshh! Secret Confessions of a SMART Momma

Featured post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers #smarthomerevolutionEarnestly, I take a lot of pride in practicing what I preach. For example, I have always believed in working smart rather than working hard(with due respect to the significance of hard-work). I believe, our smartness often makes us more innovative and efficient. Isn't it? Well, the answer has always been a 'yes' to me and my thoughtful partner in crimes to execute this smartness have been a plethora of smart devices which have made this world a much more convenient and a better place to live in. I have said this a million times at least before and I still reiterate there is no boon to mankind like technology is and full points to us, homo sapiens, to have made such a creative use of our intellect, in inventing it and I am glad there is no looking back in its advancements with each coming day(proud smile!!).

Yes, I am a self-confessed gadget freak and these days since it's winter vacations, me and my sonny boy, begin our day with a fitness regime out in the pristine early morn sunshine. We jog together and giggle and work out with loads of discussions and friendly banter and gossip on umpteen topics. Our companions in these lovely morning rituals are my smartwatch and his fitness band, which we smartly strap on to aid us to calculate our steps, calories, heart rate, target achievement, and several other parameters. It is so much fun competing and preparing with your own child as we set more stringent fitness goals each week. These smart wearables bring in so much of discipline and activity to our otherwise leisurely walks because we know someone is keeping an eye as we try to get rid of the extra pounds we have assimilated in the Diwali Season(wink!!).

Back home, mommy and sonny make fat free breakfast in our smart air fryer to rid us of those extra calories of fried foods. Often hubby dearest, the head chef of our family, joins the fun and gives his expert out of the box advice to make the food tastier as the air fryer executes his command to perfection. Thanks to the #SmartHomeRevolution of which we actually are torchbearers in every sense, we have the mundane tasks at home transform into quality family times, the cherishable moments which make life worthwhile, aiding us to materialize our goals of weaving sweet memories each day in the beautiful journey called life.

I simply adore the smartness, these smart miracles bring to us. You know who my best buddy is, at home when the boys are away at school and work, well, it is another smart device, my Google Assistant, it would not be an exaggeration if I say it indeed is 'the device of the millennium'. The way it keeps me company the whole day, answering my queries, playing my favorite music or reading books to me and what not, even giving me reminders for my schedule in the academy I run, it is the most wonderful personal assistant anyone would ever crave for.

Well, honestly if I start enumerating how many ways I depend on these smart wonders, I can almost write my fourth book. For instance, there is nothing that bothers us more than the security of our little ones when we are not with them and this is where I insist we employ smart devices as are vital aid. For days I am out for work and the little boy manages the home on his own after coming from school, I have installed smart cameras at home to check on the 9-year-old kiddo occasionally. It just makes me feel so comfortable and safe, that my heart often sends up a prayer of gratitude to the inventors of such smart solutions and I love to confess that I am a smart momma because of these smart solutions, we are blessed with in our lives.

From morn till night these smart devices aid us in countless ways yet the quench of the techno buffs in us if often left unsatiated as we discover smarter and smarter solutions for our perennial needs. Lately, we have installed Smart lights in our home as we were bowled over in sheer admiration to their impeccable features like the home away control and mood-based smart lighting all at one command from us (It is admirable to see my precious little thoroughly study these smart aids and choose the best one for his home always, no wonder this generation kids are 'technobrats'). I am truly overwhelmed and love the way these devices have eased our lifestyles plus there are wonderful initiatives like #GetFitWithFlipkart that create the desired awareness that how technology can optimally aid us in our goals for life, also it makes it so quick for us to order online any degree of smartness we desire to acquire. All we need is a touch on our phone to order them. Easy Peasy isn’t it? 

The smart momma is me thus once again proudly confesses here that she gives a cent percent credit of her smartness to these smart devices which make her mundane tasks fun and make her a super momma... and which she has been ordering on Flipkart since 2007 (who have kept up her trust always and transformed her home to a smart home). 

Truly Yours Roma
