A mum-of-four was ‘mortified’ to discover her toddler had sent a picture of her mother’s bare bum to several contacts on her phone, including work colleagues and former university pals.
Emily Schmitt, allowed Carsyn, two, to play with her phone while she dried her hair on Sunday.
As she stood naked, she was completely unaware that her daughter was taking shots of her mother’s behind and sending them to various friends on Snapchat.
When she received a text from a co-worker saying ‘thanks for the nude’ Emily’s pulse started racing as she realised what Carsyn had been up to.
The tot had sent embarrassing photos to 15 people, including former university friends, a work acquaintance, former clients and co-workers.
Emily, 30, rushed to send out an apology as some confirmed they’d actually been sent a picture of her ceiling and Carsyn’s foot, others revealed they had seen her fully nude from the ‘backside’.
She said: ‘I was mortified. I literally think I died for a minute then came back to life so I could tell people what happened.
‘It’s so funny – this child of mine is wild. We just say she’s feral – she cannot be tamed.
‘My parents own the real estate brokerage that I work for. To make matters even worse I walked in the next day and my dad, who’s the broker, was like “oh look, here comes the company porn star”. I was like “okay, I quit. I’m done”.
‘It’s just a joke all round here and I thought it’s a dark, twisted world at the moment so sharing something on a Monday morning to make people laugh would help out.’
Emily, from Ohio, USA, had been getting ready for a house viewing on Sunday when she received a worried phone call from her friend, who warned her of the viral potential of her photos.
She added: ‘It was actually one of my fellow agents that works with me. She just said “thanks for the nudes”. I responded “what?” But I just knew. She immediately called me.
‘Ashley, my agent, was like “Emily, I don’t know how to explain this and I wasn’t going to say anything because, like, it’s okay. But I think one of your kids had your phone this morning’. I just said “Yes. Yes, they did”.
After saying how sorry she was for the mishap, Ashley said she wanted to make sure she was aware in case the picture was sent to anyone else.
Emily added: ‘At that moment I thought “oh god”. I said “tell me what I’m dealing with here – what angle?” She said I was standing there doing my hair and they saw it from the backside.
After chatting with Ashley, Emily discovered little Carsyn had sent Snapchat messages to 15 people – including a former university friend who had a crush on her mum.
She said: ‘It’s people I don’t talk to all the time. I was like “oh, there’s the guy I went to college with who had a crush on me” and “oh, there’s a past client of mine”, “there’s an old co-worker”.
‘I don’t know it went to everybody. I immediately responded to everybody and some responded back to say the picture they got was the ceiling, or a sideways picture of a kid’s foot.
‘It didn’t go to everybody but it for sure went to one of my agents and one of my past clients.
‘Luckily it was Snapchat so we’ve got to find the positives. It didn’t save and no one took a picture or screenshotted it.
‘It’s gone forever. That’s a small comfort after everyone seeing my butt in the morning.’
