Comments & ID Thoughts

Can anyone help me identify this spider? It’s about the size of a quarter, they’re black/dark brown with tan/dark yellow stripped legs. It has a couple of circles followed by a line on its back with a marking on its underside almost like an hourglass. It’s legs are quite long with not much hair on them that I could see. I usually find them walking around inside our house. I found this one in my bed. I have small children and I’m concerned they may be bitten.
