The top 5 times I don’t want my iPhone to die (plus an iPad mini and more giveaway!)

What is the absolute worst time you’ve pulled out your phone, only to find the battery DOA?

It’s happened to me way more than I care to admit. You’d think I’d learn from my mistakes. But noooooo, I just keep ending up with a dead phone in situations when I reallllly needed my phone to be working.

I’m not talking about the kind of situations most people would consider emergencies. I’m talking about something much more dire – MOM emergencies.

1) 5yo has tolerated a couple hours of errands. I’ve insisted on her occupying herself with good old fashioned crayons and coloring books, but she is now revolting. She wants to watch Peppa Pig on my phone or she will lose it. I relent, pull out my phone, and … wah-wahhh. Dead battery.

2) No food in the house. Hubs and I decide to take the kids to a restaurant. They patiently wait with us for a table and sit through ordering dinner. Hubs and I want to talk with each other (imagine that), so we bring out our old iPhones for the kids to play with and … wah-wahhh. Dead batteries. And hangry kids.

3) Three-hour road trip. Kids will be entertained by crayons and books for approximately 23 minutes so we’ll let them play on the … nope. Forgot to charge the old phones.

4) At 5yo’s gymnastics. 8yo needs to practice her spelling words and actually doesn’t mind it when using a spelling app on my phone but guess whose phone is out of juice? Yup.

5) I’m sitting at a 1.5 hour dance class. I have been productive the whole freaking day. I really just want to zone out and watch silly You Tube videos for a little while (don’t judge, happy cats and babies make me giggle). Guess whose phone is dead and instead gets to listen to dance studio tweens yapping and squealing for 90 minutes instead?

What’s that saying about insanity? Doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results? Yeah. That’s me and my iPhone battery expectations. Sigh.

Well, guess what? If this all sounds too familiar, I’ve got a giveaway for you.
