holy smoking shitballs

That moment when you click on the baby monitor and your child is staring directly into the camera with the soul-less night-vision eyes, and you are 167% positive that all your Paranormal Activity nightmares (including those precipitated purely by the trailers for subsequent sequels) have come to pass.

  1. Hilarious! My first night with a video monitor I was freaked out the second I turned my bedroom light off and saw the familiar blue glow.

  2. OMG! Yes! So creepy! Just wait until the day when you're glance at it to check on her and she sits up and looks at the camera. Creepy!

  3. Yes, that's one of those joys of parenting no one tells you about. My husband once checked it in the middle of the night to find our little boy (probably 10 months or so at the time) just sitting upright, back straight as a rod, perfectly still. I think he had to say a few Hail Marys before he could go back to sleep (husband, not baby).

  4. YES! THAT!

    every morning i would wake up as i heard her moving around, and by the time i got out of bed and looked at the monitor, godzilla was in there, mouth around the camera - we just rested it on the side of her crib. clearly this was not a good solution. however, godzilla baby provided some awesome laughs that i hope to remember 20 years from now

    THEN we finally (10 months late) get around to mounting the dumb camera on the wall in her room, and there are mornings she literally is waving at the camera! how do they know???

  5. Ahh, I really hate those glow in the dark night vision eyeballs. The only thing that's worse is when my video monitor screen froze to show an empty swaddle cloth with no baby in the crib that I just laid said baby in. To then go into the room, see baby in crib and still see no baby in crib on monitor and really begin to question my sanity. I had to pick my just fallen asleep 4 month old up to prove to myself he was there. I now have a love hate relationship with my video monitor!

  6. I turned ours on last night and for some reason it had a freeze frame of that exact image, but from the last time we had the monitor on. She was asleep so it only showed for a split second. There are No. Words.

  9. Jesus. I will stick with the AngelCare monitor. All I have to look at there is the swinging pendulum of still-breathing.

  11. Henry did this the FIRST TIME we put him in his crib. These babies are up to something, I'm telling you.
