Declan vs. the Bib

Mealtime around our abode starts a bit like this:

It progresses nicely as Declan enjoys his yummy food.

And then it happens. He realizes he has a bib on and starts to rip it off. Knowing I already have a mound of laundry (plus wearing a bib isn't too much to ask?!) I promptly tell him "no sir", which then ends up about like this:

Okay, okay. I give in. I mean, his "this sucks" face is irresistibly cute but it's not worth the tears. No bib, Delcan wins and meal time resumes.

Yum-o.

Too funny! Love the crying one, AGAIN!

I guess we pick our battles?! My BFF's daughter pretty much refuses to eat all the time and always has... so I guess eating without a bib is still eating! I am thankful to have a kid that hasn't turned her head to an ounce of food yet!

I have this fight daily with Mariana and most days I give up too. I am going to try the pull over the head bibs to see if that works, maybe if she can't pull it off she'll give up... it could happen, right?
I too LOVE the crying one. He is so cute with his little teeth!

So when did you start with the human food and what do you give him? Samuel is still at the gagging stage with anything about a level 3 baby food. Ugghh!

Too funny! Mealtime was looking exactly the same at our house. Finally I quit with the bibs altogether. It just seems easier sometimes to change a shirt . . .

Hee hee :) I put snaps on Evie's bibs so she can't pull them off :) I love the pics! I can't believe how many teeth he has!

That is very funny! His "this sucks" face is too darn cute. Darn bibs!
