To us stay-at-home Moms the idea of eating dinner out is enticing. I personally crave time out with others to hang out and have fun; however, tonight I wish I'd eaten in my car. We paid around $40 for all six of us to eat and not one darn kid finished their dinner! Not only that, I took each daughter to the bathroom (separately of course!) Brooklyn cried or acted obnoxious most of the time and we really got in no conversation with the other adults. (Sorry those of you who were with us!) To round out the evening, the boys fought the whole way which was no picnic either. On the other hand, we brought home three take-out boxes which means Andrew has his lunch already made for work tomorrow! (Score!) It turns out Brooklyn isn't feeling well and went to bed early... the boys earned an early bedtime for their behavior in the car.....maybe not all is lost for a pleasant evening!
The kids are in bed!
