Scary

It's official. We have monsters in our house. At least according to the all knowing David we do. They must be big, green, one eyed monsters, because those monsters are scary!

This scary stuff all started a few months ago when he was in a tunnel at the Children's Museum. A kid roared like a lion and scared David to the point of tears. It broke my heart to see him so upset. It took us weeks to convince him that the lions are at the zoo and cannot get out. It didn't set in until he saw the lions at the zoo. We spent near 30 minutes watching them until he was convinced that they are indeed in a cage and cannot get out and get him. Ever since he learned they cannot get out, he likes to pretend to be a lion and scare everyone else.

Now the scary is monsters. How does one get rid of imaginary monsters? Why with Monster Be Gone Spray.
2 squirts before bed will keep all of the bad things away!

(Monster Be Gone Spray is actually air freshener with a cool label on it. Ours is tropical scented. I wish that I had come up with this idea all on my own, but alas, someone on the internet came up with it years before I had David.)

Last night we tried this for the first time. It was a success! He went to bed for the first time in weeks without saying that something was scary in his room, or asking if the monsters would stay away. We sprayed in the closet, over his bed, and one extra spray by the hutch in his room.  He looked at me and said, "All gone" and played with his bus until he fell asleep as normal.

Let's hope this solves our monster problem!
