Many children are afraid of monsters. Heck, maybe you were one of them (maybe you still are). And whether they were under the bed, behind the door or in the closet, they would just be there, lurking. For parents it can be a struggle, trying to get your child down for the night in the presence of whatever is lurking around the corner. It can try your patience. But one Vancouver Island family just came up with a cure for monsters. And it’s so, so simple.
Aaron Watson and Amber Dixon’s daughter, Mya, was having trouble every night while trying to get to sleep. Monsters affected her sleep, she didn’t want to go to bed, she would need a significant amount of cuddles before she was out like a light. So Watson had the brilliant idea: a monster potion.
He went to the local pharmacy and had them whip up the magic elixir: which is really just water that sometimes gets some lavender added to it for soothing purposes. But it’s the label on the Monster Spray that’s the kicker.
Now the monsters are afraid of the two-year-old as she banishes the monsters with her potion. Watson jokes that they’ve refilled the bottle about 20 or 30 times now but, hey, it’s a small price to pay for a monster-free home and a good night’s sleep. And you’ll do anything if you’re at your wit’s end. All you need is an understanding pharmacist and you’re in business.
