“Last night Alayna woke me up around 1am and said she thought there was a bird or something flying around the room. She heard a flapping noise and she thought it might have been Audrey walking around. I thought she was still dreaming so I asked if she was awake. She assured me she was awake and she saw something flying around our room.
We turned on the light and sure enough, there was a bat flying around and around and around our bedroom. It flew down the hallway into the children’s rooms and then flew back and forth and all over the place in a bat-like sort of way.
I got up and closed all the doors to the rooms it wasn’t in and eventually cornered it in Bryce’s room while Bryce was still asleep. It was flying around and around his room so much that Bryce was swatting at in in his sleep. I got Bryce out of the bedroom and then got inside his room with a giant sheet. He eventually went into the closet and then Alayna and I threw the sheet on top of him and we wrapped him up and threw him outside.
I asked Bryce about it in the morning and he didn’t remember anything about the whole incident. He didn’t even remember we waking him up. I’m almost positive the bat came from our basement. We didn’t close the door to the basement last night so that’s how he got upstairs. I had to confess to Alayna that sometime ago I saw a bat in the basement, but I never told her. At least she felt better knowing where it came from.”
