Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Another Baby on Our Monitor!

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Another Baby on Our Monitor!

Video baby monitors are a parent's security blanket. We took ours along on a recent visit to grandma's house. After putting our tot down for the night, we visited with family and friends well into the night. After checking our son one last time, we retired to bed and drifted off to sleep. A few hours later, I heard a noise and quickly tapped the button on the monitor to find a perfectly content lil girl curled up in a crib. My heart skipped a few beats as I raced down the hallway to find my child peacefully sleeping in his makeshift nursery. It seems my parents' next-door neighbors recently welcomed a baby girl and were using the same monitor as we were.

Have you ever picked up a neighbor's child on your monitor?

That would scare the hell out of!!! We used to pick up our neighbors phone calls on the handset (that only picked up sound) but never another picture on the monitor.
