Magical Moments of Parenting #901

There are lots of dangers associated with young children using technology.

There’s grooming, and bullying, and the risk they could break something you can’t afford to replace.

But as ever, we have discovered the downside that other families somehow miss.

It’s called “your child borrowing your phone and sending a message to a new (male) client”.

Apparently Fwendy is what Flea calls her best friend, Zara. And now it’s what I call marketing directors from high street retail companies, too.

Truly horrifying.

What’s worse is it’s been more than 24 hours with no reply. Do you think he believed my explanation?



Sally is a full-time blogger and founder of the Tots100, Trips100, Foodies100 and HIBS100 communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She spends a bit too much time on the Internet. She’s also a very happy Mum to Flea, the world’s coolest ten year old.

      I am beginning to suspect he doesn’t…

    LMAO Too cute!!! My kids have a habit of doing that as well! My daughter especially likes texting my contact on my phone and saying hello! When we had a film crew filming us last month that evening my son was missing them as they had gone and wouldn’t be filming them again (although they were still in town). He borrowed my phone and texted the director saying “Please can you come over for an hour” luckily I realised just after he’d done it and sent them a text apologising and saying it had been my son. The following morning when we saw them at the school he admitted that when he received my son’s text he had worried they had done something wrong or we didn’t want to be in the documentary!! I hope your client gets in touch soon and believes your excuse

    oops, reminds me of the bit in “I Don’t Know How She Does It” where she accidentally sends a sexy email to a client. You never know what can come of that kind of thing.

      It’s a long time since I read it but it sounds horribly familiar!

      Thanks. Your support is greatly appreciated. No, really.

      One hopes not.

    Did I do something to piss you off ?

    • 13th May 2012 / 7:20 pm

      Ha! Scrolled entirely past your comment, I do apologise

        Thats ok, just been aware that I may be coming across as a total nutter. Enjoying your blog and then see you in real life and I act like a bloody stupid startled rabbit. Honestly I’m really not odd, well I am, but in a good way.

    That’s hilarious – thankfully the Boy hasn’t figured text message out yet though I’m sure it won’t be long!

    That was definitely the funniest thing I have heard all week!! Couldn’t even begin to imagine what thoughts are going through your head at the moment! I am sure he realised the text was not meant for him after reading ‘Fwendy’ – At first I did think it was a children’s term for ‘friend’
