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.
