Audio Re-transmitters SUCK!

Last night the lowercase went to sleep after his 9pm feeding. Normally, he stays up and eats once more between 10:30 and 11, so this was a rare thing indeed.

I laid him down in the crib in his room rather than the cradle in ours and turned on the baby monitor. My little man still can't sleep in a quiet or dark room, so we always leave a TV on Nick at Nite for the sound of people talking softly and light.

When I went into the living room, I started thinking that maybe I wasn't hearing his room. It was confirmed when the commercials ended and people were talking, rather seriously and soap-opera-esque about Francesca's labor. I'm pretty sure that wasn't in the episode where Roseanne worked at a fast food place for a kid from Becky's school.

Confirmed -- interference from another apartment in the building. No big, we'll change the channel. Except it didn't matter.

Apparently someone in our building (8 units, 4 up, 4 down) has one of those wireless audio transmitter speaker systems. You know the ones -- you just plug the speakers into an outlet and they pick up the signal from the television or stereo. People who just don't want to run wires.

I can honestly understand it if you are doing it to pipe your stereo throughout the entire house or whatever, especially if it's rented and you can't snake the wires through the walls or ceilings. I get it.

But for your TV? Seriously people. Use a real home theater solution. Run some dumb wires around the perimeter of the room. I want to hear my son in his room and NOT your dumbass choices in television. (Shut up about dumb choices and my son sleeping to the sounds of Roseanne -- it works for him -- he sleeps -- and I don't have to sleep sitting up to hold him all night like I did before we started doing that after his NICU discharge)
