We went to a casual restaurant, and for once, the baby not only fell asleep in the car, but STAYED asleep after we got in the restaurant and got seated! I was hoping I was finally going to actually eat a meal in peace for once, rather than having to spend the whole time feeding her all my food and trying desperately to keep her happy. I did order her some mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese, but she always seems to think my food looks better than hers. Anyway, the dumb thing was, I sat us down right next to the soda fountain and the noisy ice machine.
It woke her up RIGHT as soon as the entree arrived and I spent the whole meal bouncing her on my lap and not really being able to enjoy my food. Boy will it be nice when I can finally eat and sleep in peace again.
If we can avoid people bashing me for having the audacity to feed my child mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese, or for bringing a baby into a (family friendly!) Restaurant, or for venting my frustrations about my baby girl, that would be awesome. Yes, I love my precious baby girl with all my heart, but she's an exceptionally fussy baby, and of course I do get stressed.
