Let me start off by wishing everyone a Happy NewYear!!! Well... My family and I go out to eat at Ruby Tuesday's tonight. We just wanted to do a little somthing special to celebrate NewYears since we had no other plans. It started off great, untill my 3yr old started (purposely) sliding out of his booster seat under the table. My 2yr old thinks its funny, so she starts mimmicing him... I cant get them to listen at all, and other people start staring at us like we were some "side-show act". Then they decide it will be so hilarious to start throwing crayons at each other, and start laughing so loud that thier voices start echoing off the walls) which cause's more stares... It doesint stop there though, My darling daughter (the 2yr old) then decides to drop all her food (including her ketchup) into my purse!!! They each only took a couple bites of food, and they were done... We ended up boxing up our stuff and leaving... We usually never go out to eat unless its kid friendly like McDonalds, or Burger King and this is exactly the reason why... What can I do to keep my kids in line when we DO try going out to eat at places like this?
