We started giving the kids forks when they were about 18 months old.  There’s no real reason that we gave forks to them at that age.  Honestly, it’s just when we sort of thought to do it.  Since I’m already fixing plates and handing out forks for the big kids, I’ve just started fixing Penelope her own plate and giving her a fork.  She usually dumps her plate pretty quickly, so I take that away.  But she holds on to her fork.  Imagine my surprise the other day when I turned around and saw her with this:

P.S.  Yes, she is wearing a boy’s bib.  We’ve gotten to where we don’t pay much attention to such things – at least when we’re talking about bibs.  A bib is a bib is a bib, after all.

fwiw, both my girls wear boy stuff all the time! I'm not much of a pink fan ;)
