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!!!
