It’s ok – I’ve worked out today, so I’m allowed to be on the ‘puter. (That’s my new weightloss plan – no ‘puter while Sierra is napping unless I’ve already worked out: Strollerfit, Mommy & Me Fitness or a 30 min “run” on my treadmill). I’ve lost 2 lbs so far with this new game plan….
!@(monitor.jpg popimg: “Fisher Price Sound N Lights Monitor”)So what’s this about eavesdropping? I think I caught a neighbour eavesdropping on my house today. Thanks to “modern” technology it is possible. You see – I have a Fisher Price Sounds ‘N’ Lights Monitor. It reportedly can work up to 500m away (that’s 1/2 a KM!). And I’m pretty sure it does. I put Sierra down for her nap – and often she can put herself to sleep, and well – sometimes she can’t. Anyways I had her transmitter on channel B. I came downstairs and listened to her try to settle on one of my receivers, also set to channel B. I dropped the receiver and it flipped to channel A – guess what I heard? Yep – a staticy version of Sierra trying to settle. I flipped it back to channel B – I heard the same thing minus the static. So I grabbed the other reciever and put it on channel A – yep I heard it again. Now I KNOW this neighbour has the exact same monitor that they use on channel A ’cause when they first brought their baby home from the hospital I accidentally heard them changing their baby (I left my receiver on channel A, then went and picked up Sierra from a nap, I turned off my transmitter and I heard voices instead of the usual static – since then I’ve changed to channel B). The sound from them listening in on channel B was floating through their house and being picked up by their transmitter set to channel A. Isn’t that rude? And if you’re going to listen in on someone else’s house – why wouldn’t you turn off your transmitter? Sierra still wasn’t settling so I went to her room, picked her up and told her all about our nosey neighbours (I figured they were probably still listening). I wonder if it was interesting to them?
