Be nice to the monster under the bed. Give them a proper name, something that can be shouted in surprise at the odd tickling sensation at your ankle. Be considerate with a regular sleeping schedule, you will both feel grumpy on three hours of sleep. They do not need to feed regularly but should you get crumbs on the floor do not feel bad you are providing a nice treat for them. Sometimes the monster under the bed is a metaphor and sometimes there is a sentient clawing black shadow with breath the temperature of winter waiting to snag in its hellish embrace underneath you’r bed frame.
you really think that you’re smarter than toddlers? a kid just made eye contact with me from his stroller and telepathically told me that einstein’s theory of relativity was in fact, false, and apa cited his sources. think you can beat that? grow up.
