Over a butter dish
Last night, I was reading a Strawberry Shortcake book to the girls. One of the characters in the book, I think Angel Cake, needed to borrow some butter. She was presented a stick of butter in a beautiful covered butter dish, and the girls thought that was just so special.
"Why don't you have a pretty butter dish Mama?" asked Annalyn.
"Yeah, Mom, why don't you put your butter in something pretty?" Sveta chimed in.
"Girls, I put the butter on a plate because it is easier to get from a plate instead of a little square dish. Plus, we use the butter so fast that it doesn't need to be covered."
Real translation. Mom is too lazy to add an extra step (removing the cover each time) in her food preparation.
"But I do have one that I can show you," I told them.
"We want to see it Mama!" Sveta, Annalyn, and Anna squealed.
"Will you use it one time too?" Anna asked with much excitement.
"Sure I'll use it pretty soon."
To have such excitement over something so trivial still marvels me. Kind of like when I get a new kind of hand soap out. They go crazy, and think I am the best mom ever.
