Todd & I are the lucky new owners of Iphones!
We have been downloading apps like crazy people, emailing & tweeting all day long & just enjoying the all around bliss that we techy nerds love about these phones.
Today it hit me that I was missing 10 Really Important Apps:
1. The Nanny App.
The Nanny App is the app that I can use whenever Lboy has a massive blowout in his diaper. I just press on the cute, little button & out pops a woman (or man, this is 2011) who will change the kid’s diaper with NO complaints (and hey, let’s make this a free app. Why not?)
2. The Maid Service App.
Picture the same kind of app as above, only this one does all the cleaning, washing of dishes & organizing to my heart’s desire (and my OCD husband’s desire.)
3. The Lawnmower App.
Husband not feel like mowing? Well, let’s throw him a bone & create the lawn mowing app for him. Heck, we can even make this the “Any sort of outdoor yard or house work that needs done app.” It works just like the Nanny & Maid Service app. And it leaves you & your husband sitting around drinking sweet tea (we are in the south y’all :)) & enjoying your Saturday afternoon.
4. The “I’ve run out of milk, it’s midnight, & I can’t go to the store” App.
This app would be a lifesaver! It could also be called the “Wal-Mart Store” App. Out of bread? Out of snacks for the kid? Out of diapers, wipes, anything else that freaking warehouse sells? Well, baby there’s an app for that. Click on your app, type in what product you need & boom, it’s right there at your feet ready to go!
5. The “Brilliant Blog Post Idea that will get you a 1000 comments” App.
6. The “ATM” App.
And guess what? I’m not even going to make you work for the money. It just spits it out whenever you want or need it to do so.
7. The “Gas” App.
And by gas app, I don’t mean the kind that your husband, son & dog seem to be so full of all the time. This is the “#@$&! my gas light just came on & I’m already 15 minutes late to [fill in blank]” app. Press your app button & watch your gas tank magically refill!
8. The “I don’t want to load up in the car with a grumpy kid to travel & want to be be there now” App.
Don’t want to load up with the kids for what you know is going to be a miserable trip? Use this app & you will end up wherever you want to be! No tears, no car sickness from turning around a gajillion times because the kid has thrown a [fill in blank] at the back of your head kind of trip.
9. The “Home Decorator” App.
You can have Candice Olson or Vern Yip right at your fingertips and a beautiful home to go with them! They will be at your constant beck & call & and they will be FREE! (You don’t pay for Apps in Kate’s world. Because I have the ATM app!)
10. The “My child will always do what I say” App.
Ha! Yeah right. Now I’ve just taken it too far!
Can you think of an App you would like?!
I was inspired by the Bud Light commercial (and a lovely diaper from Lboy that I didn’t feel like changing this morning) for this post:
Love this! I’m still laughing about the “massive blowout” in #1. I will never go bargain shopping again without thinking of this 😉
How about the “wash, dry, fold and put away laundry app??” I’m sure I’m not the only one who would LOVE this one!

Man, hard to follow all that. Those were so brilliant you deserve 1000 comments 🙂
I’d like to have the “Drop five pounds instantly app.” I could use that right now and I dont feel like its asking too much.

I’d like the “pass all my finals without studying 16 hours a day for the next 3 weeks app.”
And while we’re at it, the “pass the Bar Exam app,” would be nice as well.
How about the “pause app,” so that I can take a step back, grab a sip of wine, and THEN deal with life.

LOVE this!!! I’d also add the “Grocery Shopping App” where you press another cute little button and somebody does all of your grocery shopping for you! You won’t have to deal with sales, prices, and coupons. You’d avoid the long lines, packing and unpacking the bags, and loading the car. Sounds perfect to me!

Hahaha! Too funny! I’d like to have all those apps…even the diaper changing one for when my grand-babies come to visit! Plus..how about the “I don’t feel like cooking so go pick me up some take out” app!
But, instead of the Bud Light app, I’ll need one for Diet Coke!
You definitely deserve 1000 comments for this one!! Good job!

Okay, so I SO want App #2…for that, I would fork out the moolah for the monthly broadband plan. I mean I have been on a life long quest for Mary Poppins. A woman who sings a song I can’t spell, unless I Google it, and all the messes dance their way to neatness?!?!!! I’ve searched high and low and alas, I still cannot find that chipper Brit. So, maybe I’ll run with that App o’ yours.
AND, after a certain wee kidlet lost ‘typing priveleges’ and ‘piano priveleges’ for the rest of the week after multiple, many, oodles of defiance, fits, not listening, and such (not fit for description on the world wide web), I could So use App #10! (But, truthfully, #2 is still the most appealling to me….am I nuts???!!!)
Have fun with your new addiction! :>
I’ve been asking for these apps for the last two years. So far, no one has delivered. Perhaps we should start sending these lists to Apple.
You need to get the Scrabble app so we can play against each other. It is much better than WWF.

My husband has an app that alerts him to my PMS. I would like one that scrambles the tv signal not allowing basketball to come on EVER.
