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 !

No MORE FINGER FOODS, PLEASE ?   


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

OR WE ARE THRU !


Toddler’s rights

This highchair

Bites!  You  try

it out !

RIGHT NOW !

 K?
