A Toddler's Mealtime Revenge

Not those green things again 

Mom!  Really ?  They are gross !

I’m going on a strike!

Starting right now!  No PEAS !

A real live hunger strike !


You eat them!  Will ya ?

Let’s put on YOUR  bib !

Ridiculous, huh ?

Now look who’s a clown !?

See YOUR ugly frown ?

Give me a fork !

Stainless steel too

Barbequed pork


Toddler’s rights

This highchair

Bites!  You  try

it out !



FOR PD's Gerber Baby Picture
INSPIRED BY 16 yr old photo of Gabriella at mealtime! Thank goodness for nannies!!!

    It's called revenge poetry.....

    It gladdens me to read this one dealing with a lil something from our daily life..Not everyone could handle such topics as deftly as you have done here, that too after shifting gears so smoothly from lofty things like the holocaust which again is another impossibility for many of the less talented ones.. simply great , Gwen..:) Jag ps: About your creativity going dry, i would suggest you write a love note to someone u like which would help to open up those blocked lines.
