For Parents Taking Small Children to Restaurants...

Based solely on my experience, I offer up the following things to keep in mind when you take small children to restaurants:

1.) Set expectations low

2.) Tip well

3.) Apologize to the wait staff several times

4.) Consider it a success if the number of times a child cries is less than 3

5.) Expect your child to eat less than half of what you ordered for them

6.) Crawling under the table is perfectly acceptable behavior in the eyes of a 3 year old

7.) The evening isn't a good one unless someone opens sugar packets and sprinkles them all over the table

8.) At least one adult will walk away with heart burn

That pretty much sums up our evening and I had a great time! The in-booth tackle was definitely one of my favorite moments.
