To make a very long and complicated situation short I will try to condense this the best I can. Due to a custody hearing my son has his children, a 4 year old and a 2 year old, for the summer. The mother lives 600 miles from us.
From the first moment they stepped in the door they did not behave or try to behave: screaming, running in the house, spitting, flushing things down the toilet, and breaking things intentionally. I work days my son works nights so they are always with one of us.
One evening while I was making dinner for them, the 4 year old out of the blue said, "Mommy told us we had to be bad while we were here Grandma". I responded with, "That isn't a very nice thing for Mommy to say. Being bad only gets you guys in trouble, not Mommy". She looked down at her plate and shook her head yes while she was eating.
That night when they went to bed, I had a thought. How could they be contacting their mother without my son or me knowing?
This was about 6 days ago.
As of yesterday, it has been about 5 days since they spoke with their mother (that we know of). Last night after dinner they were in the small children's pool while I watered the gardens. We didn't come back inside until about 7:30. I dried them off, they got ready for bed, made them a snack, and they watched TV for about 30 minutes. While they were singing with the TV, I heard their Mother's voice
coming from the 4 year old's bedroom. I heard the mother call the 4 year old's name twice and ARE YOU THERE?
After they went to bed I checked my phone (land line) for any missed calls. There were two, from the Mother. No messages were left. Time stamped at 7:03 p.m. The voice from the bedroom happened at 8:04 p.m.
My question is what kind of device, other than a phone, could allow this type of conversation to take place?
Thank you all for listening to this, but I am at my wit's end.
