SOMETHING TO TELL THE PEOPLE OF EDMONTON?



Really?!

So yea you can say it’s none of my business but we were over at my brothers the other day and my niece was in a high chair with a bib on……

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

SHE’S ALMOST 5!! Is it just me that thinks this is not right?! Now you can say let’s not compare kids but all of the kids I know including my own that are around 5 years old, have been out of a highchair and bib phase for years.

ANOTHER POST:  Please Butt Out Properly!

I’m not going to say anything to them but I’ll just vent here, I think it’s absolutely ridiculous! She’s not a baby anymore!!

  1. I’m 45 and I still use a bib. Really cuts down on the laundry stain remover. People tell me all the time to act my age, but I’ve never been 45 before so I’m not sure what they mean.

    Plus, like you said, its none of your business unless its abusive.

  2. You’re right.

    That’s their business, and only your problem if you make it. Parents have enough struggles to deal with on top of getting judged for the decisions they make. It’s ok for you to disagree with their methods, but it’s also ok for them to disagree with yours.

  3. My neighbors entire family wore bibs at every meal, even the parents. The mom made them. Easier to do a quick load of bibs than all the different types of clothing under them

    1. I’m sure she doesn’t need it, but maybe she just likes to sit there? Kids adjust. I mean, my kid was still grazing snacks all day when she hit kindergarten and it was an adjustment when she realized that she couldn’t just eat whenever she wanted, but she figured it out. That’s life.

    1. Hahaha. Sometimes I think that, but I’m also trying to teach table manners. My 2 year old doesn’t even sit in a booster seat anymore. I just keep reminding the boys to sit straight and eat over their plate. And if they get super messy I just throw them in the tub

  4. Good grief, what the big deal? If she was 13 and still in the high chair then maybe you have cause for concern. You’re getting all worked up about nothing. Maybe you have too much time on your hands. I suggest you myob and focus on your own family.

  5. The bib I dont see an issue as keeping their clothes clean makes sense. The highchair without asking about it could be the comfort of the child and not the parents wanting to hinder them. My daughter is almost 4 and sometimes she thinks its funny to sit in her sisters highchair to eat. From an outsider perspective it might seem wrong but unless you ask and know 100% why they are doing it you can’t judge their decision.

  6. Bobs to save clothing, seems like a good idea, even if it’s tucking a napkin in the shirt. My youngest is 2 and he’s been out of highchair since about a year and a half. He sits at the table in a booster 🙂

  7. If my daughter could fit in a high chair still, I’d consider this!!! At five my daughter is still SO MESSY! Who cares what they do? The child is loved and cared for. They’re doing the best for THEIR family. They aren’t doing it to be mean, it’s likely to keep the mess down. I really don’t see a problem…
    Mind your own.

  8. I’m curious as to why this evokes such a strong reaction in you. Ask yourself if you feel judged or threatened in some way by this behaviour. Do you think that their actions somehow reflect something about yourself?

  9. Interestingly enough, I was just watching the episode of Game Of Thrones where Catelyn takes Tyrion to her sister’s castle as a prisoner, and we catch loving mother and son in the middle of feeding time.

  10. I’m 71 yrs old and a lot of times I still have to wear my bib (that I purchased at the Halifax farmers market) especially when I eat certain meals. Hell, I’ve even taken it with me when I went for Dim Sum.

  11. So? Maybe the kid is messy!? You don’t do their laundry so it’s not your business. Also I seen grown ups use napkins at restaurants as bibs and napkins on laps. Same thing. Find something worthy of complaining about.

  12. Kids are still really messy at 5, maybe the mom just got sick of doing loads of laundry. Who cares if she’s in a high chair? Maybe there’s a reason for it. Don’t bitch about it here, talk to them about it.

  13. Who cares? For real? Every family is different, every mom/dad/parent has things they do that may seem weird or odd to other people. Totally not a big deal. If it bothers you….surprise then with a $30 booster seat and a plastic cover for a kitchen chair!
