A haunted baby monitor?

We have a great video baby monitor – it’s very helpful to be able to see Anya so we know if she’s just a little fussy or if she needs us to come upstairs when she’s sleeping (or when she should be sleeping, rather). However, there seems to be a little problem with it, and I don’t think the company takes back merchandise due to ghosts.

A few weeks ago, I had come downstairs after turning the camera upstairs off, and the monitor was still on (not surprising since I hadn’t turned it off). When I looked at the screen as I was about to hit the power button, I was startled to see flashes of a crib in between the static. This was very puzzling – I knew I hadn’t left the camera on, and even if I hadn’t been sure, the crib on the monitor wasn’t ours anyway. I turned the monitor off and on again, and it was still there. Lex saw it, too, so I know I wasn’t hallucinating it.

Today I happened to turn on the monitor before the camera, and there was the phantom crib again. The static makes it look very creepy, and though I know that somewhere nearby there must be another baby whose parents have a video monitor tuned to Channel A, I wouldn’t be shocked to find out there was a spookier explanation. Hey, it would fit in with the fan and light that turn on spontaneously in our purple bedroom. And the big dead guy who walks around our house at night.
