Don't forget to spray the monsters out!

Probably about six months ago, Bean started talking about the "M-word" you know, monsters.

She would run through the house screaming that the monsters were going to get her. She wouldn't go into another room alone (even with the lights on) because monsters were in the room. "Stay with me mommy, I can't sleep by myself, the monsters are in my room." she would plead.

Snuggled with 3 baby dolls, one kitty cat, 3 puppy dogs, 3 princess dolls, a night light turtle and a box of tissues with soft music playing in the background...I thought she might feel somewhat secure. And then it dawned on me...another blogger had tried "Monster spray." (Or a spray bottle of febreeze!)

So, that night I said, "Do you want me to go get the monster spray? It keeps the monsters away." She thought for a moment and said, "Ok."

Six months later..."Momma, I have something to tell you." "Yes." "Don't forget to spray the monsters out!"

Happy Halloween!

That is a great idea! Ian is adjusting to his big-boy room, but before you know it, he'll probably hear about the "monsters" somewhere, and then he'll never fall asleep. I will keep this in mind. :)

Mine is an old Downey Wrinkle Release bottle with water and a few drops of lavendar oil... smells great and no chemicals. I spray every night! Long live Monster Spray!!
