Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

When you get tired of reading about my kids visit my other blog all about ME!

Breathing new life

Baby Monitor
Originally uploaded by Nikitiger
I found a new use for the baby monitor. (which I didn't use all that much to begin with since I found that my kids cry loud enough that I could hear them throughout the house anyway.) With the weather getting a little better the kids are playing outside more. But Adam has this need to know that I can hear him at all times so in the past he has left my slider open, closing just the screen. Well it's really not all THAT warm yet and leaving the slider open freezes us out in the house. Plus when the dead heat of summer comes it's counterproductive to leave the door open while running the AC. SO I came up with a solution.

The Baby Monitor.

I plug it in outside and I can hear everything they are doing! Adam gets the peace of mind that I am aware of him every time he may need me and I get the freedom of closing the slider. It's lovely.

Only problem is that Adam thinks it's a walkie-talkie so he comes and talks into expecting to hear me talk back. What he doesn't know won't hurt him.

That is so funny! What a good use for that. I'm still wishing I had a backyard to sen the kids out to....
