I was remembering today how when we would go out as I was growing up, my mom would always scramble up words, writing down the letters in the wrong order, for us kids to figure out. I did mine in my head since I couldn't read. She also taught us pig Latin, and played hang-man. My daughter isn't old enough for those games yet, but they're good once the kiddoes outgrow the kids' menu coloring pages.

I use to keep a small bag of things for my son to do/play with at a restaurant. It included some army men, a tic-tac-toe pad, some good quality crayons, a small pad of paper for him to draw pictures, and other small toys.

Oh, & when I was small it was a different world. My Mom never even cared if we were entertained at all. We sat there & didn't move or else we got the stink eye from her & her wrath when we got home. She never hit us but somehow she instilled extreme guilt into us that we feared her. LOL!
