Jodi Hargraves had left Mason, two, and three-year-old Jaxson in their bedroom at home in South Lyon, Michigan, USA, believing they were watching a film.
Collecting all the dirty laundry from her bedroom, Jodi was called to the kids when her husband received a phone interview only to be greeted in their lounge by the boys smothered in the oily spread.
Mason had a head full of butter, which Jaxson says was the result of the kids trying to make pancakes.Grilling them in the bathroom, Jaxson protests his innocence that the butter is back in the fridge before Mason admits it has ended up in their bedroom.
Jodi said: “I honestly didn’t know how to react.
“I wanted to laugh so bad but at the same time I also wanted to cry because of the mess.
“They were in their bedroom watching a movie and I thought that’s all they were doing.
“I was not prepared for the sight that greeted me.”
It took two baths to remove all the butter off the troublesome twosome and a further three hours to clean their beds, blankets and carpet.
And that my friends, is why the silence is the worst sound you can hear from a toddler.
