Mum Left Terrified After Son Appears In Doorway Wearing Glow In The Dark Pyjamas
Ordinarily, it is parents who have to comfort their frightened children in the middle of the night. But the dynamic was flipped on its head in a US home after a two-year-old gave his mum the fright of her life with his glow-in-the-dark pyjamas.
Angela Kelsay, from Edinburgh, Indiana, was tucked up in bed when she heard her bedroom door creak open. Naturally, Angela - who is mum to 15-year-old Cash, 10-year-old Elli and two-year-old Lennox - assumed it was her youngest.
However, when she opened her eyes, she was met with a sinister pair of glowing eyes looking back at her.
The 36-year-old said: "In the middle of the night I heard our bedroom door creak open. I figured it was my two-year-old son Lennox, but it was pitch-black so I couldn't tell.
"I blinked away the sleep so I could help him up into our bed. But instead, in the doorway was a set of terrifying glowing eyes and mouth.
"It wasn't a random light and it was hovering only a foot or so above the ground. I don't do scary movies... I watched Paranormal Activity about five years ago and still have demon-related PTSD."

At this point, in her groggy Paranormal Activity-scarred state, Angela convinced herself that her 120-year-old home was being haunted by some kind of ghost - and she was preparing to take action to defend herself.
She said: "I was praying, calling upon the Lord to help me out - even though my relationship with the big guy isn't really consistent. But I quickly realised I was on my own.
"I was ready to throat chop the thing as it came closer - it was time for some real-life demon slaying.
"I've never been so utterly and completely petrified."
Fortunately for Lennox, and his throat, he spoke out, and Angela made the merciful discovery that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pyjamas she'd bought her son were in fact glow in the dark.
She said: "All of a sudden I heard a whisper - a little 'Mommy' with a question mark.
"I've never felt such relief - it was just my Lennox. I'd flipped on the bedside light to reveal an - apparently glow-in-the-dark - Ninja Turtle shirt and it was at this moment I realised two things: my baby has a future as a ninja because he was absolutely soundless, and I nearly throat chopped my two-year-old."
