Actually it was a gigantic spider hiding under the bed in the spare room.
While building a fort, the hubby saw a very big spider. He came out of the room with our Princess, located a shoe and went back in with a mission: Get rid of that spider. Once the Princess figured out what his intentions were, she ran into the room to stop him.
“No that’s my friend!” she yelled. (I was reminded of Charlotte’s Web in that moment – a favorite movie of hers.)
Distracted by his daughter, he missed with the shoe, and the large scary spider got away.
Great now we have a runaway spider in our house. I just watched a show on Animal Planet about a lady who was bit by a spider and her skin started eating away and a cup of pus came out of the large bite….
Yay! Perfect timing for this bug phobic mommy!
