How 'bout 3 girls and 3 boys, with 2 mommies. All going out to eat!
After a hair cutting spree, where I did 6 haircuts, I really wanted to treat myself to something nice. Like a mess I didn't have to clean! And a salad bar! So Amanda and I looked at each other and decided to go out to eat at a local restaurant. Hey, her and her girls, and my boys all looked spiffy with their new do's, so why not show them off? I got a little bit gussied up myself and off we went.
The kids squawked the whole way there but were relatively quiet during dinner. I was very proud of how well my little guys did! William actually slept through the seating and ordering, and didn't wake up until I had half my salad built. I was holding him the whole time he slept, which made for some of the looks. Some of the others were because the girls and Amanda were on one side of the table, and my kids and me were on the other side. Boys against girls? Boys rock!
The food was yummy, although William literally took the bowl of green beans off my plate and ate them all. We made it almost all the way through dinner without too much chaos, and no drinks got spilled. At the very end while we waited for our check and to-go boxes the little ones escaped down the aisle and around the tables, and the older ones were just under the tables.
For all of our children together, close to bedtime after a long day, with meds worn off.... it was a pretty good evening! And although I am sure that some of those young couples there thought we were insane, we thought the evening went pretty well and had a nice laugh about it on the way home! :-)
