Unicorn Poop

One of my long forgotten attempts at being a “crafty Mom” showed up a couple weeks ago, dumped in a pile on the dining room floor topped with glue.

In this moment of exasperation over yet another unnecessary and ridiculous mess to clean up, and even though I knew what the pile was, I yelled out, “what the hell is this mess?!”

A few seconds later my two boys came running into the dinning room. Both had on their best innocent faces, and my six year old casually replied, “Well, Mom. I’m not sure, but I think that looks like unicorn poop.”

It’s been nearly three weeks, I can tell you that I’ll be reminded for years to come of this mess (about a measuring cup of glitter) because no matter what I do, I’m still finding glitter everywhere. It’s on my feet, it’s on my clothes, and even been seen on the my daughter’s ass when I change her diaper. We’ve found it inside of books, in the kid’s hair and I found some today on my baked potato. Apparently, glitter stays in the environment forever…and ever.

    LOL! Glitter is the herpes of the craft world. You’ll never get rid of it all!

      Ha!  Jen, I was just going to type that, then saw yours.  Great minds think alike.  I bought my daughter an adorable shirt with glitter on it and they didn’t adhere the damn stuff well.  After washed and dried, there was hardly a lick on it.  Now, when I cleaned the lint filter, it exploded off the screen… all over my laundry room, and all over the baskets of clean folded clothes.  AGGGGGHHHHH!

    My daughter had a beautiful Christmas dress with sparkles.  She rode in her Dad’s truck to go get pictures done at Target.  It’s now August and my husband is still highly offended that there is still glitter in the back seat of his “big man truck.”

    I hate glitter!!  I have never bought the stuff but my daughter sometimes comes home with art projects from school with it.  Those teachers must really have something against us……

    It’s like Easter grass. We have never had Easter in our house, but some one at some time did, and I keep finding it everywhere!

    glitter is the herpes of craft supplies…

    Oh God, the glitter.  I’m all over that.  And you can NEVER get it out of there, can you?  That shit just sticks and sticks and sticks.  Wait..Jen said it’s the herpes of the craft world.  Damn, I wish I’d thought of that.

    Glitter is totally the herpes of the craft world.  And body glitter is even worse because it’s finer and softer so it will stay forever.  My three year old dumped out 3 bottles that I had left from Halloween. I am still washing clothes that haven’t been anywhere near the disaster site that have the fine powered glitter all over them!

    The under-lying cause being the choice of U.S. consumers to get a
    washing-machine at the lowest-price-point has caused manufacturers to
    drastically lower their quality standards to the point where today’s
    machines have shorter life-spans and only one year warranties are
