My little gents had already gone through my supplies of baby food, crackers, cookies, bananas -it was something the see. People were staring with what looked like a nervous admiration, or perhaps just disdain! The waiter prompted by a mother of twins at the bar - offered to buy me a beer. Was it that bad of an experience to see? I politely declined and started thinking of a way I could prolong the outing for a few more minutes. This is when I took Mr. T out of his chair. Within seconds, my water was spilled everywhere, duh, why didn't I see that water? I was done. I took the boys out to the van to the relief of the patrons( a story left for another post) and I waited until my daughters and Mr. C were ready to leave. So I ask you:
Do you think eating out is worth the effort?
I say no. At home, my boys go to bed before we eat, so putting them through the rigor of a meal that takes three times as long can be excruciating to them (and to me!) I would say that before you decide to take the whole crew, weigh the pros and cons. Realize that it won't be a lazy evening sipping soda - but one where it could end up in your lap!
What do you think?
