Sharing the story on the Kmart Mum’s Facebook group, a very amused wife posted photos of her daughter’s new doona cover, featuring stars as the pattern.
“Tonight my husband put our daughter to bed, turned on the monitor & went to sit down,” she wrote.
“Out of nowhere he jumped up with a panicked look on his face & raced to her room.”
Asking her husband what happened, he said the stars looked like spiders in the dark.
“See that pattern on her blanket? I thought it was a big black spider in her cot!” he said.
An easy mistake.
