Monster Spray (AKA Glade Air Infusions)
I can't take credit for this idea. I found it in a magazine somewhere, but never dreamt I would use it. Isaac has started to be scared of monsters before he goes to bed. I told him to pray to Jesus to help him feel less afraid, but this didn't seem to be as effective as Monster Spray. After a long day with this boys, I was feeling frazzled and this seemed like a quick fix for the moment.
The monster spray from the magazine involved getting a spray bottle and filling it with water and spraying it under the bed and anywhere that a monster could hide. I decided to use something I already had under the kitchen sink, Glade Air Infusions. I made a label on the computer and taped it on. I did the creative stuff a day or so later but Isaac seemed convinced that it is the same stuff. Another added benefit of using an air freshner is the nice smell under the bed, in the closet, in the hamper etc. Plus, my monster spray is guaranteed to keep monsters away all night long!
