Now that Jaxon is officially sleeping in his crib & 80% sleeping through the night, we are finally using our baby monitor. I have always heard that you can pick up phone conversation from them, but it has never happened. Now, if you know me, you know how nosey I am & something like that is just up my ally! (Note to self, remember to pick up Grama's police scanner when I go back home to Ohio next month)
Well, the other night Joe was trying to get Jaxon to sleep. I was in my bed reading a book. I turned the baby monitor on thinking that Joe was upstairs with him. In fact, he was still downstairs. I heard some baby noises from the monitor. At first, I didn't think much of it. Then I heard a woman speaking Spanish thru the monitor. Either a woman broke into our home, or I was picking someone else up. Then I heard a man's voice, also speaking in Spanish. Oh, if I only spoke the language! I thought that I was picking up a telephone conversation, then I decided that it was another monitor that mine was picking up. I could hear the baby babbling to herself. Blowing raspberries. It was kinda cute!
Now, on the other side of things, I am not so sure I like the fact that someone could be picking up what we are saying! I don't want anyone hearing any of my bad mommy moments, screaming at the kids or threatening the dog that I am going to send him to pound (I am just kidding...I would never say/do those things....or would I?) I use to keep it turned on 24/7. Luckily, it is upstairs & we are hardly up there. Since that night, I am turning the monitor off when Jaxon is not sleeping. And when I do go up there, I now talk in my oh-so-sweet voice, "Good morning my lil baby sugar plumb". LOL!! Actually, that is how I normally talk to my kids. If anyone does listen in on us, they probably think I am crazy for talking that way! Ha ha!
Having a baby monitor is kinda like having Big Brother listen in on you...or in my case...Baby Brother!!!
