*this isn't technically a conspiracy, but it does fall under the false alarm/debunked paranormal category. Sorry if I'm putting it in the wrong
Sunday afternoon, it's about 1:30 and I'm taking a nap on the couch, my 2 Y.O. is napping in his room, my 6 month old daughter is lseeping in her
crib in her room, and my wife is doing some straightening up in the kitchen. My wife wakes me up very abruptly with a tone to her voice I have never
heard before. When I look at her and finally clear the fog from my head I realize that she doesn't look well. All the color was drained out of her
face and she was actually shaking a little. She tells me "Someone is in Anna Marie's room with her." I'm confused as hell, so I ask her
"what?" and she just repeats what she's already told me and says "on her baby monitor. they're talking to her." We live in a 3 story town
house with all the bedrooms on the third floor. There is physically almost no way someone could get into any of the upstairs rooms without us knowing
about it on the second floor. So I go into the kitchen where the monitor's speaker is and I listen with my wife actually shaking and about to freak
totally out next to me.
I hear this in a woman's voice:
"Oh look at the happy baby! Why are you so happy, baby?" followed by singing/humming that "mama's gonna buy you a mocking bird song." We listen
for a couple of moments, with me trying like all hell to figure out exactly what's going on and what I should do and meanwhile trying to keep myself
between my wife and the stairway because I could tell she was ready to bolt upstairs. Then the first of two well timed things came over the monitor
which relaxed me, first I heard a baby and it didn't sound anything at all like my daughter, and then I heard some soft country music playing. The
radio in my daughter's room only plays CDs, so I realized pretty quickly that we were picking up someone else's baby monitor. We went upstairs,
found Anna Marie still asleep, and my wife woke her up just because she needed to hold and hug her. She also unplugged the Graco monitor, threw it
into the trash, and we scraped up my son's old Evenflo monitor to hook up for her room from here on out.
I have no idea who has the baby monitor in our neighborhood. I know it isn't one of our immediate neighbors, because none of them have little
babies. But I will say I have NEVER been more pleased to see something potentially paranormal debunked as I was to learn we didn't have spooks in
our daughter's room.
