Mama's Gift

"Mama, I have a present for you. It's just down the hallway."

I don't want to squelsh the budding artist here, and I guess objectively I can see the allure and beauty of the glitter. But how the hell am I supposed to put all that glitter away?!


(For the record, the above was my internal dialogue and externally, I was polite and said thank you and also explained the sadness of growing up and worrying more about cleaning up stuff then the enjoyment of making a beautiful mess).
