monsters in my room!!!

So my two year old seemed to come up with the concept of monsters almost over night.
One night while trying to get him to sleep in his room he told me he couldn't go night nite in his room because a monster was under his bed. I explained to him that there were no monsters in the house, looked under his bed to reasure him, explained that daddy and I get rid of any monsters immediatly. Apparently this wasnt reassuring enough because an hour later he jumped into bed with us. I love my child to pieces and enjoy cuddle time but being sandwiched between two bed hogs is not my idea of a great nights sleep. Any helpful ideas or feedback is greatly appreciated.

Get him a bottle of Monster-B-Gone. Just get a regular spray bottle and fill it with water and maybe a touch of lavender (maybe a little Febreez) for scent and a little flash light.

Tell him if he sees any monsters (after mom and dad have checked closets and under beds before bedtime, of course) then he can use the special Monster-B-Gone Spray
