Don't tell my kids that I eavesdrop on them all the time! I seriously have supersonic ears, I can't see worth a darn (thank you glasses and contacts) but I can hear loud and clear. I do not even need the baby monitor. Never have. I am tuned in to what is going on around here. I can tell you exactly what my big tall hubby is snacking on late at night when I go to bed just by hearing him get out dishes and what he gets out of the pantry. He is always marveled at that talent!
So anyway, the kids think I need the baby monitor to hear Tanner when he wakes up. Nope. I can hear him just fine without it. I use it to monitor them when they go upstairs and are getting into mischief or stuff they're not supposed to get into. They always say something like, "mom, how did you know we were getting in your scrapbooking stickers?!" Ha, ha, ha! I will never tell. And don't you tell either. Do you think they'll be suspicious if I keep using it for the next ten years or so?
