You Know That Moment When You Just Stop. Listen. That Moment When You Realise That Everything is Way, Way Too Quiet?

I just had one of those moments.

But it was just the quiet of three slices of bread being buttered for lunch.





Hope you own lunch was somewhat lower on the cholesterol front...

Cindy said...

I always like a little bit of bread with my butter too. At least it was on the bread and not the couch or in the hair or on a very happy and fat cat.

Would you like some bread with that butter??

Mel said...

Um yeah. I had the same moment this morning but instead of butter spreading found my almost two year old decorating a toile covered antique children's couch in BLACK TEXTA!!!! Much scrubbing ensued ...

BTW my heart almost stopped just looking at that amount of butter!

CurlyPops said...

Mmmmm tasty.... in a buttery kind of way!

Amanda said...

Too cute...What is it with kids and butter...My 2yr old loves to feed sticks of it to our dog..???

We had a similar incident on Wednesday morning - except the 3 year old blamed the 14 year old (who was well an truly at school by then).
Did your butter come with a side order of BS too?

So very helpful! The ironic thing is that once they are old enough to do it properly... they don't want to help any more.

I can feel my arteries hardening as I read!

Tarn, That gave me a good laugh!
What is it about butter? Charlotte will actually run off with it (sneaking it away) to eat! Shocking!!
Maybe you could mince some garlic with the butter next time and give her a sliced baguette (Voila, Garlic Bread!)
Love it!

Singlehandedly keeping the Australian dairy industry going , I see . She obviously thinks we should EAT our way out of the credit crisis .Quite right .

I just had a buttered zen moment. :)

Leonie Guld said...

Ooh, I can feel my tongue going funny just looking at those photos! So darling would you like bread with your butter? lol

ambette said...

Can never have too much butter eh? ;)

ick and ooo said...

Yes you have to worry when it is quiet

Nikki Cardigan said...

All it needed was some 100s and 1000s.. !!!

Peta @ Pippiwillow said...

Oh the fear that 'that level of quiet" can instill, last time I found 'artwork'- crayon on white wall being the medium of choice.
I hope your'e planning on a mega bowl of porridge washed down with a nice glass of psyllium husks to help absorb (and send on out the other end) some of that cholesterol! Peta

Now, I do love butter, but..... :)

I totally agree with your soapbox. It is a scary world that girls are growing up in. It is so great though to hear that you are so passionate about providing a positive environment and that you care enough to be furious.

Ha!

Cath from chunkychooky said...

I need water just looking at that. I was already giggleing before i read what happened.
quiet + small child= bad things are happening.

Loz and Dinny said...

Yummy Scrum - and after you've munched on your bread you'll have enough butter spare to grease yourself up for a channel crossing ... if it is the wee one that is always trying to cross bass strait there may be real cause for concern if it goes really, really, really quiet man.

Sue said...

At least the bread looked healthy

Andrea said...

...just a tad bit...

I hate those quiet moments. Wait...I have to see to my little one, he's unravelling yards of fabric around me....

Kylie said...

Oh how funny... I so chuckled, ready for the surprise... and then you did really surprise me! :) K

Bird Bath said...

*chuckle* last time I went to investigate such a quiet moment the little one was doing something similar with my entire lipstick collection....

Jodie said...

ha !!! Given the last post this is hysterical.....

nikkishell said...

So funny yet i know this scene so well :)

Katie B. said...

I love it. I was wonding what to have for lunch today. That just might be the thing.

modernemotive said...

Ha, when I first saw the pic I thought she'd put ice-cream on it.

That's quite the butter fest.

Too cute!

Nowheymama said...

HA! Excellent.

Fer said...

I'd eat that much butter over margarine any day though!

tea with lucy said...

I slice butter off the block and eat it like cheese. (Shhh, don't tell anyone!)

We had an all to quiet moment like that recently. Sudocrem and a wool rug.

Madeline said...

Oh. my. that's quite a dollop of butter.
The other day I was making cookies. I turned my back, and my little man started chowing down on the stick of butter. Uggh!

Corrie said...

oh yes, today it was all too quiet and the half bag marshmallows was no more! all gone to one 3 year old!

a little step was used to get them down and then it was all over!
