"I knew they would want them to to be very bright to be entertained," said D'Entremont.
In a now viral Facebook post, D'Entremont shares 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?" D'Entremont wrote in the post. "Buy them glow in the dark pjs. Tell them they have to lie really still under the light to 'charge' them ... I'm not even sorry."

"They laid there for 10 minutes and I had to actually stop them to continue with bedtime." said D'Entremont. "I then transitioned them to their bedroom by turning off the lights — the pajamas really do glow! They loved it and thought it was great fun because they aren't quite old enough to grasp that we could see them due to the glow, even though they couldn't see their dad and I in the dark."
Explain to your kids why values are important. The simple answer: When you're kind, generous, honest, and respectful, you make the people around you feel good. More important, you feel good about yourself.
D'Entremont, who works as a nurse with a palliative and hospice care facility, says she's floored at the viral response other parents have had to her post.
"I think it's nice sometimes to see something just innocent and playful and relatable," she said. "What parent doesn't want five minutes of quiet? I think everyone — parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, nannies and babysitters, teachers — anyone who is around kids just got it."
