A Stick of Butter

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

I found Zachary in the fridge today.

I know that this isn't shocking, but he was climbing down from one of the shelves, holding a stick of butter in one hand and a (butter) knife in the other. I, being a good mother, asked him "WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU DOING?" - rather politely, of course.

Apparently McKenna was outside playing and had decided to swing in Kaleb's baby swing. And gotten herself stuck.

So Zachary (in all his 3 year old wisdom) promptly came inside, got a knife and a stick of butter and answered me, "McKenna is stuck in the swing and I am going to help her get out with a stick of butter. Because then she can get unstuck if I use the butter."

Where he comes up with these things I have no idea. Probably would have worked, and if I wouldn't have caught him it would have been even MORE fun to blog about.


  1. I think that is very insightful for a 3 year old! He's a genius, I tell ya. That's why he's so active....his brain is moving so fast and his little body is trying to keep up.

  2. Wow! That's really smart!

    Wish we had a swing set ;)

    Hope she got unstuck without butter!

  3. LOL I am cracking up!! That is great! What a thinker!

  4. i guess it's a good thing you caught up with him when you did! butter stains on clothes are the worst.

    funny kid.
