My Wife Just Texted… #151

My Wife Just Texted emojis from my son

So it wasn’t my wife who texted me, but I’ll be honest, I actually stared at this for a solid clueless minute before I replied. I guess I was trying to wring some kind of sense out it, like it was some kind of ancient Egyptian scroll of hieroglyphs my wife had written in emojis.

I was really tired, okay. I just didn’t think my 4.5-year-old knew how to get into my wife’s text messenger, let alone create digital murals with emojis. The fact that I had’t already received 18 bazillion text’s from my littlest son sort of lulled me into a false sense of security. Well, now I know.

I just realized that after this text, though, now if my wife sends me one of those lazy mutant texts we sometimes send, I’ll probably just text back, “Give your mom her phone back, lad.”

    My children send out texts like this frequently; they think it’s a game, and when someone replies back, they think they’ve won. :)

    Just this morning my husband left for Vienna, and after flying about 1 hr my phone rang and I saw that it´s my husband calling me… I literally freaked out, just watching the news about the plain disappearing in Malaysia, being sure it´s my hubby calling “we´re going down, I love you”. Well, it was not. It was our 12 month-old son playing with the iPad. Even I don´t know how to make a phonecall with iPad! :D

    Last month while I was in the shower, my 5 year old daughter picked up my phone and sent this gem of a text to her Dad (thankfully) – “Pee pee your pants on me tonight…”.

    I kid you not. DH was in a client meeting and not amused on what he thought was my A-rated proposition at a highly inappropriate time.

    Needless to say the guy-brain of his appreciates the wordplay now and its his to-go for a romp now. :-S

    At first I was super impressed that he copy/pasted “🏠🏡🏫🏢🏣🏥🏦🏪🏩🏨💒⛪️🏬🏤🌇🌆🏯🏰⛺️🏭🗼. . . ” but then I realized that is exactly in order left to right
