Voicemail & My Daughter

My daughter just recently memorized my cell phone number so if she can call me if there is ever an emergency. This led to numerous calls to my cell phone while I was at work. Shaun has since talked to her about not calling mommy all day at work, but for a couple days I was getting at least 2 or 3 messages on my phone which consisted of lots of background noise and my daughter's voice informing someone that she was calling her mommy.

One day I left work at lunch and noticed I had two messages. Both were from her. I called her back to see what was going on. As soon as she realized it was me, her tone changed. I could tell her feelings were hurt and she was ready to cry.

Tyler: Mommy, why did you tell me earlier that you were too busy to talk to me and you would call me back later?

Me: What do you mean? We haven't talked today, honey.

Tyler: When I called earlier you did not listen to me. You just said you couldn't talk and would call me back later.

I can tell at this point that she is very close to tears. All of a sudden I realize that when she had called earlier and got my voice-mail, she had thought she was actually talking to me!

It took a few minutes to explain to her that the voice she heard was a recording and not really mommy. Then it took a few more minutes to explain to her how she could leave a message for mommy. I think she has the recording from me figured out but I still get the message with all the background noise and her talking to someone else saying she is trying to call her mommy.
