Going out to eat with kids

DON’T DO IT. HAHAHA.

If you have a toddler (or two in my case), it is absolutely impossible to go out to eat.

If your kids are anything like mine, your “exceptional dining” experience turns into the last super.

No Joke…

One kid is crying while the other is screaming. Of course, everyone is already watching the moment you step foot through the door.

Who knows the thoughts running through their heads. Maybe that you are CRAZY?

You usually question your sanity within the first five minutes.

My favorite part is when they order a kids meal. It comes with all the bells in whistles and costs more than my rib eye steak. Dinner comes out, and soon your three-year-old thinks he’ll trade dinners.

Of course, you trade! He’s eating!

Your rib eye steak…

The meal usually ends with something spilling, food flying, and requesting the check before you even take your first bite.

The struggles real, mama.

Luckily, I have a fantastic sister and ‘brother-in-law’ to watch my crazy, cute pooping machines so the husband and I can enjoy an “exceptional dining” experience once and a while.

As payment, I usually make them dinner.
