At least she didn’t dial 999

This afternoon, I was upstairs, getting sidetracked by my computer, and Daisy was in the living room watching TV. Kevin popped up on MSN, and the following conversation ensued:

Kevin said:
hello
Ruth said:
Hello.
Kevin said:
daisy is on the phone to me!
Ruth said:
Erk!
Ruth said:
Did she ring you?
Kevin said:
yes
Ruth said:
Erk!

She had just shouted up the stairs that Daddy was on the phone, but since it hadn’t rung, I assumed she was playing. It turned out that she’d retrieved the phone from its holder, and managed to press speed-dial, and speaker phone, in a combination that dialled the first number on the list. Which left Kevin going, “Daisy? Daisy? Is Mummy there?”

His colleagues were suitably impressed that his two-year-old had called him, entirely independently. I’m worried that no matter how hard I impress on her the naughtiness of this, it’ll be water off a duck’s back when, from her point of view, it was fantastic – she got to talk to Daddy, all by herself…

Too flippin’ clever by half, my daughter…

  1. lol! I have actually taught my three how to use the speed dial on my phone to get Steve, but they’re a touch older than Daisy!
