All I want to do is see you again, is that too much to ask for?

How long should you let your kid cry?
10 minutes? An hour? Two days?

Well, with the wonders of technology I can now 'watch' the baby and see what all the fuss is about. Is there a ghost in the room? Did he swallow his fist? Whatever, now it's all on a video baby monitor for me to see.

The sad thing is, I can't stop watching the thing. It's riveting. Even after he starts crying, I just...stare at the screen. Only until he reaches a full high pitch screech do I realize, 'Hey, maybe I should pick him up.' Or not. Maybe I'll just turn down the volume.

*The more red lights, the louder the crying.
Hi. I'm a bad mother.

We have a video baby cam too, and the way it looks makes me feel like I'm watching those Nanny cams where they catch those psycho people shaking their babies!

Nah! The red lights mean that you're supposed to turn the machine off and roll over to catch more zzzzzs.
