Why is life as a parent always so hectic? Do you find that we always have so much to remember, all the time!
Today I finally reached the point of almost meltdown. I went to pay for my dentist appointment and when I put my card in and the message jumped up saying ‘insert pin’, I just blanked. I’ve had the same pin number since I was 16 years old. That’s 12 whole years of pumping in the same four numbers. But for some reason I couldn’t for the life of me remember what they were.
My brain had officially malfunctioned. Purely due to being completely overwhelmed with all the information it is trying to store.
Did I also mention that I had completely forgot that I even had a dentist appointment? I realised half an hour before my appointment time, that it was today. It was 8.30 in the morning. I was still in my pjs and was just finishing up making Evie’s breakfast when I remembered. I quickly shouted to my fiancee to take over. Then, I put on some trousers, the first socks I could find, some shoes and my coat. I grabbed my handbag and rushed out the door. Then I was met with rush hour traffic and I really don’t know how I made it into my appointment, just one minute late.
As I lay back in the chair, the bright lights in my face, I started to wonder. When did I became this super disorganised Mum?
I’ve become the Mum whose fridge is an endless sea of post it note reminders. I’m the one who leaves her shopping list at home and realises as soon as she steps into the supermarket. I am the Mum who writes appointments in her diary, only to forget to even look at it. I’m also ‘Mum, the information hub’.
The one who expected to remember everything. Family members birthdays, all of our appointments, what we need for shopping, what day it is and what we have on that day/week/month, despite the fact that I also work full time and have a demanding four year old to look after. I’m also the idea hub for our weekends together. Miracle Mum just always know what to do.
But, to be honest, I’m winging it. And pretty badly too. As I rushed into my dentist appointment, I realised then, with my pj top on (a coat thrown over the top in a desperate rush to leave the house), with my bed head and odd socks on, that I definitely no longer resembled the once highly organised ‘very together’ person I was, before I became a parent.
I knew then, in that moment, that I needed help. I needed a personal assistant, someone to keep me in order. Someone to keep control of things, because I already had way too much to think about.
How nice would it be to have a personal assistant?
Someone who would make sure you remember that today your kids have an event on at school, or that tomorrow is your dentist appointment that you booked six months ago, or even that it’s your Mums birthday on the weekend. What if this personal assistant could also add things to your shopping list and could give you recommendations of things to do on the weekend?
Well guess what, this personal assistant exists. It’s coming out onto the market very soon and I am going to be one of the very first people to queue up and grab one.
Wizzili is a new family PA that most parents could previously only dream of and oh boy have I been dreaming. Wizzili is an AI personal assistant who does all of the above and more. It’s a product that has been designed to be the central hub of our family homes.
It stores our appointments, it knows what’s going on at school today, it can give you weather updates, traffic updates, keep control of your shopping list and remind you of all of those birthdays you tend to forget.
Here’s a little video so you can find out more about it:
The device is really easy to use. A simple touch screen and it has voice recognition, so when you address it, it’s listening and knows who you are.
How Will Wizzili Tranform Your Life?
Imagine waking up in the morning. You put the kettle on, start making breakfast and it suddenly dawns on you that you don’t know what day it even is, or what is on your schedule today. Isn’t it your best friends birthday? Or is that tomorrow.
But just then you realise, your wonderful, incredible ‘can’t live without’ PA is just sitting there, waiting for all of your questions.
‘Wizzili…have I got any appointments today’.
Then the voice you could only dream of answers you. ‘Yes, Evie has a gymnastics lesson at 10am. You have a meeting at 3pm and a dinner with your parents at 8pm’.
‘Thank you Wizzili. What’s the forecast for today?’
‘Today is set to be cloudy with occasional showers’.
Suddenly your child shouts from beside the fridge. ‘Mum we’re almost out of milk’.
You turn back to your wonderful PA. ‘Wizzili, we need milk’.
‘Milk added to your shopping list’. Wizzili chimes.
You can also access and use Wizzili outside of the home, via an app downloaded on your phone. That means your family (and yourself) can stay organised and updated regardless of where you are and what you are doing.
Wizzili makes the dream of having a personal assistant a complete reality. The device looks so promising that it was even selected as one of the start-ups, by Sud de France Development, to be at the famous CES conference where the product will be officially unveiled.
So, is it safe and secure? And how does it compare to Amazon Echo and Google Home.
Whereas Google Home and Amazon Echo collect data and use it for marketing purposes, Wizzili believes in privacy and will not use your data to make any money.
It also serves a different purpose to Google Home and Amazon Echo. Like Google Home and Amazon Echo it’s an AI device that offers intelligent interaction, but Wizzili concentrates on daily family organisation. Unlike the other two devices, that have been created for mostly entertainment purposes.
Wizzili has been designed to be the central hub and information centre of our homes. It has been enabled for shared usage, so at a glance, everyone in your household knows what is going on, where ever they may be. The information is stored very securely and privately and circulates easily just among its users.
So, do you love the sound of Wizzili?
I really do. I’m dreaming of no longer being the central hub and information centre of our home. I can’t wait to shake the responsibility of having to remember everything and I love that my whole family get to use it too.
Maybe when I get my hands on a Wizzili, I can start enjoying the things that matter again and I’ll feel a lot less stressed. I can turn up to my dentist appointment in acceptable clothing and on time. I will no longer forget things I need from the supermarket, or will no longer forget important birthdays or family/school appointments.
