iPhone Overload

My kids are driving me absolutely CUCKOO-KACHOO with all the friggin’ apps they continue to want for the iPhone.  Every day it’s something new.  My damn phone now has over 8,764 different games on it!  WTF?!  Ok, so maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but I seriously can’t find any of the things that I need on it anymore cause it’s so overcrowded with kid shit!

And we thought we’d solved this little issue by giving them our old iPhones to use like an iTouch.  However, thanks to this whole iCloud horse dung that my husband’s hooked up, all the kids’ crap automatically goes onto MY phone.  Awesome.  So now when I want to check the weather, I have to scroll through things like “Plants vs. Zombies” and “Justin Bieber Me” and “Plumber’s Crack“, which, as you can imagine, isn’t at all annoying.

So one would probably assume then that with all that variety, my twins would have more than enough to entertain them, right?  Evidently, though, they are on some kind of a mission to collect every single app known to mankind before their ninth birthday next month.  They are constantly coming to me with quarters scrounged from their piggy banks and the couch cushions to buy yet another jackass new game they’ve discovered.  The WORST is when they wake me up at the ass crack of dawn to ask about making a purchase.  Luckily, they’ve since learned how very big of a mistake it is to ask Mama for ANYTHING at that insane hour of the day.  (Have I mentioned that I’m not a morning person?)

I’m more than certain that my phone’s gonna explode at any given moment and tell me to go f*#k myself.  Cause surely it’s on the brink of information overload.  How could it not be?  And yes, I do realize that I could put all the kid stuff into a folder to clean it all up, but I’d rather just bitch about it to you guys.  Especially since I’m way better at bitching than I am at technology.

    I think (THINK! please confirm with someone who may know more) that you can go into your iPhone’s settings, under iCloud, and choose which apps back up onto your phone. THINK! I’m not 100% certain. What happens if you delete those from your phone? They come back?
    I empathize here. The boys have been without their Touches for a month now, because I got sick to death of the begging and whining for apps and the backtalk when I tried to pry them away. Great stuff, but crack for these two.

    Too funny. My three year old knows how to work my phone and occasionally deletes stuff. Can’t imagine when he gets older!

    we SO have this problem at my house!!!! Except my son is 3.5 years old! He can work the darn thing better than I can! He’s constantly coming to me saying “Mommy, let’s load a new game, k?”
    The only thing that saves us is that he really has no idea how to enter the password to download a new app, thank god! I’m sure it wont take long though. Ugh!

    Oh no. My son already has a “page” on my iphone of apps and those are ones I’ve allowed him to get, I can’t imagine when he’s old enough to figure out how to do it on his own. How many pages will I have then??
