A miracle happened here.*** updated
1. No one has tried to escape their cribs since... the incident.
2. I am now the proud owner of 2 video monitors. Our first one died after a year.5 of constant use. After "the incident" I went to Babies R Us (my nemesis) and stocked up on gear to save lives including another monitor. It wasn't the one I had been researching, but looked nice. got it home. It's ok. for now. until our other one comes. It has HORRID reviews on the bru website. I bought the Summer slim and secure plus, but am waiting on the motorola. I can even yell at him through the monitor. Takes me back to 1994 when my friends house had an intercom. GENIUS.
3. This morning... was the miracle. Now it has taken over a week of use but this morning G woke up at 6:30 and cried for me. Looked at the alarm clock. Saw that it wasn't green. laid back down and WENT TO SLEEP. Then when he woke up a little before 7 he whined for me, but then PLAYED IN HIS CRIB until the light turned green. All of this must be attributed to the fact that I created a jammin' song to remind him of the rules.
Now to stop staring at the monitor with my finger on the intercom button...
***it should absolutely be noted that this concept is not my own, but came from the great Heidi. It's her annivs today, y'all. Also, she gave me the idea to make up a song (lyrics, completely my own. hers are much more smarter..."
****the alarm clock did not work miracles this morning. That whole 2 days in a row thing was an epic fail.
