Mom Wins The Internet With Genius Trick for Calming Down Kids at Bedtime

After a long day of work and play, every parent knows the dreaded duty that is getting kids ready for bed.

It’s like they turn into completely different creatures—thirsty ones who need a MILLION glasses of water, seventeen more hugs, and somehow conjure up more energy in a span of 10 minutes than you’ve had in 10 years.

For Jessica D’Entremont, a surge of overstimulation and hyperactivity with her daughters Emma, 4, and Hannelore, 3, meant that the transition to bedtime this past Sunday would be full of meltdowns and tears.

That’s when it hit her. The Boston mom remembered glow-in-the-dark Halloween pajamas she had recently pulled out from the year before. She had a stroke of genius and the internet cannot get enough of it.

In a now-viral Facebook post, D’Entremont says she told her daughters they needed to lay very still under a bright light to “charge” the pajamas up.

Looking for a way to keep your kids still….

Buy them glow in the dark pjs. Tell them they have to lie really still…
