Butter Beard

Last night, I took my kids to Texas Road House for dinner.  We sat down and the nice waitress brought out a basket of bread and butter.  I figured my kids would eat the bread like civilized human beings.  My daughter did.  But my son?  He was a different story.

He dipped his finger into the little container of butter and started smearing it on his face.

"Bubba, what are you doing?" I asked.

"You'll see."

He drew a nice little butter mustache above his lip.  Then a beard.  Pretty soon his face was covered in butter.

I looked at the kid.  "Bubba.  Seriously?"

Bubba giggled.

"You need to shave that off right now, Bubba!"

Bubba giggled some more and grabbed a napkin.  He curled up in the corner of the booth and started "shaving."  Soon the napkin was covered in butter.  But at least it was off his face.

"Now leave the butter alone and behave like a civilized person," I said.

He got a funny look in his eye and his finger started to make its way to the butter container.  "I wonder how you would look with a butter beard, Mama."

I grabbed the butter super fast.  "I don't know.  But you're not going to find out!"

  1. Oh, Bubba. Don't even try it. I love Texas Roadhouse rolls and honey butter. It's the one place that can make me stop caring about carbs, so I don't go there very often.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. It's honey butter? I was trying to figure it out - I thought it was cinnamon. I agree - those rolls are delicious!

    2. I think it's honey and cinnamon. That's how I make honey butter. But whatever it is, it's delicious. I want it in my mouth, though, not smeared on my face.

    3. Yeah, I taste the cinnamon in it as well. Love the rolls when they are baked good.

      That's where I wanted to go tonight to eat. Don't know if we will though, since I also need pants for work.

  2. Haha! I'd love to know what goes on in Bubba's mind at moments like these but I'm also a bit scared to find out. He's such a great character :)

    1. Right. I'm sure I would've looked very cute with a butter beard. Not!

    1. You'd certainly have a lot of laughs! I'd invite you, but we're in the middle of trying to move, so you'll have to wait until we get to our new home. ;)

  5. LOL! How am I not surprised that Bubba would end up being the uncivilized bread-eater between your two kids? XD

    1. Ha! It would be a little out of character for my daughter to make a butter beard!

  6. Well not in Texas Roadhouse, anyway! I didn't even realize they had those restaurants outside of Texas- learned something new. And the butter beard thing sounds kind of fun for the next time I feel like acting up...

    1. Yes. The people at the table behind us were watching us like we were aliens from outer space. (I guess we kind of are. ;))

  11. Does Bubba ever stop thinking? Do you think his mind works overtime even when he's asleep? He has a special imagination...

    1. I don't think his mind ever stops. Every morning he tells me about the crazy dreams he had that night.

  13. The bread and butter in Texas Road House ..ah yum and the bucket of peanuts. Bubba's very creative to ever think about shaving with butter :)

    1. I couldn't believe it when he stuck his little finger in the butter and started painting his face. Apparently he's learned nothing about proper table manners. ;)
