On a busy day, mother-of-four Emily Schmitt from Ohio was trying to take a shower and get dressed while managing her two-year-old daughter Carsyn. So, she did what many parents do while multitasking: She gave Carsyn her cell phone as a distraction while she dried her hair.
Unfortunately for the 30-year-old, Carsyn got into her Snapchat account and accidentally took multiple snaps, sending them to 15 of her contacts.
According to The Sun, Emily wasn’t aware of what had happened until a female co-worker texted “Thanks for the nude.” That’s when she discovered that Carsyn had sent multiple photos to her contacts, including former university friends, a work acquaintance, former clients, and co-workers.
After realizing what her daughter had done, Emily apologized to everyone who received an image. While some photos hadn’t been scandalous — like pictures of the ceiling or Carsyn’s foot — some people had seen Emily’s nude backside.
Because the photo was sent via Snapchat, the image disappeared shortly after it was viewed. Likewise, Emily says that no one took a screenshot of the image. But rather than crawl under a rock in embarrassment, Emily turned to social media to let people know what happened and share a laugh with people everywhere.
“Everybody is laughing,” she told The Sun. “I immediately posted it to Snapchat just because I wanted to apologize so everyone knew what happened if they got it.” Emily notes that most people laughed because they knew it could happen to them, too. Others also shared similar stories of their own.
“When I called my husband, Derek, he burst out laughing,” she says. “He said ‘I’m upset Carsyn didn’t send it to me’.”
Below is the post Emily sent out on Snapchat. It reads:
“When you find out your 2 year old had your phone this morning and took a naked pic of you while you were getting ready,” Emily wrote. “Then sent it via snapchat to multiple people including…a fellow agent. A past client. A guy from college. An old coworker.”
“I am SO SORRY if you got the pic,” she finishes.
