SB 10.8.33
sa grhitva kare krsnam
 upalabhya hitaisini
yasoda bhaya-sambhranta-
 preksanaksam abhasata

Upon hearing this from Krsna’s playmates, mother Yasoda, who was always full of anxiety over Krsna’s welfare, picked Krsna up with her hands to look into His mouth and chastise Him. Her eyes fearful, she spoke to her son as follows.

SB 10.8.34
kasman mrdam adantatman
bhavan bhaksitavan rahah
vadanti tavaka hy ete
kumaras te ’grajo ’py ayam

Dear Krsna, why are You so restless that You have eaten dirt in a solitary place? This complaint has been lodged against You by all Your playmates, including Your elder brother, Balarama. How is this?

Mother Yasoda was agitated by Krsna’s restless misbehavior. Her house was full of sweetmeats. Why then should the restless boy eat dirt in a solitary place? Krsna replied, “My dear mother, they have plotted together and lodged a complaint against Me so that you will punish Me. My elder brother, Balarama, has joined them. Actually, I have not done this. Take My words as true. Do not be angry and chastise Me.”
