Curse you phone

I have been so frustrated with myself lately. This stupid phone is eating away my brain. I will literally become conscious of the fact my child is talking to me while I stare at my phone pushing buttons and I will have the thought “oh my, this is just awful—-eye contact, remember” but then the phone (which is literally a part of my brain at this point—stupid top secret scientific advancements) says “yes, yes, definitely eye contact, but just finish this thing first, you literally have two more words to type and they are waiting on your response—ooh look a Facebook notification.”
Then I look up and my child has walked away. And I crumble from guilt and horror of my own weakness. Then 10 minutes later the cycle repeats.
I can’t keep doing this. I need a plan. Perhaps it should be 12 steps. And a sponsor would be most helpful. Or I could teach my kids to simply slap the phone out of my hands while shouting “not in my house!” Hmmm. I think it’s time for a family meeting.
