Tonight we had dinner... out... at a restaurant... a sit down restaurant... with 4, not yet school aged, children!
And it went so well.
There was a group with young children at a near by table who were using our table as an example to their children of good restaurant behaviour. At one point the Dad said, 'Wow your kids are so well behaved.' And then after a second glance, 'And twin babies!'
Then when the elderly couple, who were making smiley faces at the babies the whole time, got up to leave, they stopped at our table and said, 'You have really good kids. Not just those cute babies but your older two, they sat so well. Very lovely to see.'
We said thank you and then took a few minutes to bask in the glow of the proof of our excellent parenting!
Then, when no one was looking, we high-fived for restaurants with TVs tuned to the kids channel!
Happy Birthday Clayton!
