Changing homes is a pretty big deal for us, adults. All that packing and moving, then unpacking… It can really take a toll. Can you imagine what it must be like for the little ones in the family? However, one brave little girl took matters into her own hands, to make sure that there are no monsters hiding in her new home.

Sidney never worried about monsters in her old house, but she told a local TV station that she heard noises in the new house when the TV wasn’t on. Of course she would assume that there are monsters roaming the premises. Makes perfect sense.

After meeting Longmont police officer David Bonday at a community fundraiser earlier this month, 4-year-old Sidney Fahrenbruch invited him over to her house in Longmont, Colorado.

Sidney’s mom Megan Fahrenbruch says her daughter doesn’t really buy into the idea of monsters, but the aspiring policewoman smelled an opportunity to hang out with an officer. So she whipped out her toddler-sized police uniform and with the help of Officer Bonday, they checked everywhere. They checked the house's main level -- including the living room, laundry room, and bedrooms -- and went outside to check the bushes. Officer Bonday even gave her his flashlight to help him look.

The officer, who has three kids of his own, said: "It was probably one of the cutest things I’ve ever been involved with as a police officer."

According to Sidney’s mom, when a reporter asked little Sidney what she would do if she came across a monster, the brave cadet said she would punch it in the face. Attagirl!
