speeCup: The Bluetooth Speaker with gesture control!

Gesture control makes this Siri and S Voice enabled bluetooth speaker unique!


I’ll admit it: I love technology.  Sometimes it really helps a mom out!  Just recently, we got a second car, and this changed a lot for our family!  Now I can take my toddlers out while my husband is at work.  We are no longer confined to our home during his work hours.  In the past few weeks, we have taken several trips to local indoor play places here in Central Illinois which have let my toddlers socialize even when it is too hot to play at the park.  A few weeks ago, we had a late start and headed to some stores first.  As we finished up and headed to the mall’s play place, I realized that my husband would be off work soon.  I wanted to give him a heads up so he could meet us there.  Since he was at work, a phone call may disrupt, but a text would not.  However, there was one problem – many states, including Illinois have created new laws that all cell phone use must be hands-free…not to mention how dangerous it can be to text and drive!  So either I had to pull over and park to call or text him, or break the law while endangering my kids as I drove.  << I’m not one to put my children in any unnecessary danger, or break laws, so naturally, I pulled over instead…for any of you who wondered! >>

Had I known about the speeCup at this time, my day would have been a lot easier!  I could have simply pressed a button, told Siri to text my husband a message, and been on our way.  Talk about convenience!

Bluetooth headphones for kid’s – a safer solution from Lil Gadgets!

These bluetooth headphones by Lil Gadgets are a safe choice for your children!


When I was pregnant with my oldest, my mother joked that my son would be teaching her how to do things on the computer by the time he was 5 years old.  Honestly, that’ll probably be true!  My 3 year old has picked up how to use the iPad extremely well and loves technology.

With some somewhat long road trips in our near future (3 hour drives are LONG for a toddler!) I started looking for kid size headphones that might help us all keep our sanity on the road.  When I searched online and in stores, I found nothing but corded headphones.  So many scenarios start running through my head when I think of kids with corded headphones.  The easily distracted may forget they are hooked up to a device and start to run off, pulling the device off the table, damaging it as it drops to the ground.  Young children may unintentionally get a cord wrapped around their neck which could become uncomfortable or worse, cause strangulation.Continue Reading…
