It is said that Krishna would steal the butter, that the Gopis would prepare. The Gopis would keep complaining to Yashoda (Krishna's foster mother) that Krishna steals their butter and breaks their urns full of water. One day Yashoda got very angry with Krishna and ran after him. But she could not catch him. You know why? Because while she was running after Krishna, his back was towards her.
