Meta Prompt: This is the same as those puzzles where you pick one word from each grid to make the meta clue, except all the grids are super small. Have fun! Don't forget about the rebus feature. Hint: every square has two letters.

Sorry, I don't understand. I mashed "I give up" and it says "The solution is: Mama"

It's a reference to Goldilocks and the 3 Bears - the 3 bears are PAPA, MAMA, and BABY. I'm not 100% sure if you're supposed to be able to derive MAMA from the grid- but there are no Ps or Ys in the grid, which should eliminate PAPA and BABY.
But, in the story, the middle-sized chair and the middle-sized bowl/spoon and the cold porridge belong to Mama Bear. Papa Bear's porridge was too hot, Baby Bear's porridge was just right.
No, there's no intended derivation except from knowing the Goldilocks story and then remembering which bear had the cold porridge (which I admit I had to look up first). Enough people got it right that I don't feel bad about the difficulty, but it was definitely harder than I wanted it to be.
