Sweet good night text from my Daughter
When I wave to my 8-year-old daughter, as she drives away from my house with her Dad for the night, her last words to me are: “I will send you a good night text later Mummy”. It is a relief and it is a lovely thing and also it means, in my mind, I am not too far away from her if she needs me.
Only recently has my daughter been able to send texts to me. Before this I gave her a phone where she could only receive texts and calls from others. Now that she is older I feel she is ready. I am lucky also that she is quite a responsible 8-year-old in terms of taking care of things.
She was always able to use her Dad’s mobile, however, it is just nicer if I can just text or call her.
So – when I am typing away at the computer or making a coffee and I receive the ‘ding’ on my mobile about 8.30pm and it is Emma – I send her a good night text back and I know she is snuggled in bed and happy.
