Monster update

Things are getting better in casa de scary. I have stripped Lucy's room of all things with eyes that she can see from her bed. This includes a kitty cat mosaic, a fish mosaic and a lion tapestry rug. Also removed, everything from the top of the dresser and everything from the little shelf. Covered up is the wall sconce that casts a scary shadow. Turned on: two night lights. The original "go down" is a little sad and involves a lot of hugs and kisses but she hasn't had a middle of the night alert festival in a few days (knocking wood). We ARE back to waking up at 6:30 but hey ... it works during the weekdays.

The title "monster chaser" never crossed my mind as a role a parent would take...thanks for informing me :-)

Glad to hear that things are improving in the monster department. We have had to do similar things in Makenna's room like make sure the closet doors are closed, that the ceiling fan is on so that it doesn't do a weird shadow on the ceiling,etc.. things I never thought of before. I have sympathy for you, but glad to hear it's getting better. Way to go mama monster slayer!
