Siri, the Relocation Assistant {not so much} | Day 7



There’s this thing about moving. Not being able to find stuff.  You know, like, the toilet paper.  But we have that now. And only 5 boxes or so left to go. So this is good!

Except some of Kami’s little toys are missing. So she took to Siri for help.

“Siri? Do you know where a toy store is where I can buy some Sofia dolls?

“I found a few toy stores fairly close to you.”

>She jumps up and down – hair bouncing in the air – “MOMMY! SHE FOUND SOME TOY STORES CLOSE TO ME! CAN WE GO RIGHT NOW?” I said, “Not now, kiddo. We’ve got some schoolwork to finish up. We’re just gonna have to find them.”<

“Siri? How many minutes to get to the toy store. My Mommy said we have to finish school first then we can go. So how many minutes to the toy store.”

“Let me check this on the web. Here’s what I found.” 

>She brings up search results for “nearby schools”.<

“Uggggh! No, Siri. Not schools. Sofia. SOFIA SOFIA SOFIA. I need my Sofia toys.”

“I’m sorry Chris, I can’t look for places in Bulgaria.”

“Siri? This is my last hope. Ok. We had two Sofia dolls and we can’t find them in the purple bag. Do you know where somebody put them when we moved to philadelphia?”

I’m sorry I don’t know where Bulldogs games are having purple mash, Chris.”

“UGGH! I’m NOT CHRIS! Oh I think I have failed.”

“That is an interesting question, Chris.”

>She gives me back the phone. Completely dejected. Then picks it up again.<

“Mommy? I think I’ll give her three more hopes.”




This post is part of a 31 day series called Fall in Philadelphia. If this is your first stop along the way, I am so glad you’re here and I hope today’s post brought you a little warmth and coziness. This journey is best taken from the very beginning.  Each day’s posts are pretty much *live* as I’m living a journey of leaving the deep South (my entire life!) and jumping into the big city. All of the blog posts in this series will be linked together on the Fall in Philadelphia landing page. Click here to be taken there.  Thanks for stopping by!

Fall in Philadelphia


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

  1. I am currently in the middle of the biggest transition of my life that includes a huge move. I never thought to ask Siri for help!! My favorite is that she interpreted what your daughter said as something about bulldogs. I love bulldogs and I am gearing up to adopt two of them sometime this month – right after Siri finds my Pampered Chef Chopper and all the rest of our boxes are unpacked!!!

    • Oh my, Larissa!! That pampered chef chopper is so important!! I hope you find it soon. I gasp to think of your having to chop an onion – with a knife. Hahah! 😉


Tell me what you think!
