Question Little ones in restaurants

How does your little one "act"? Do they behave? If so, HOW do you do it?

Taylor was always so good but lately she wants out of the highchair so she whines off and on. We went eat dinner after her appointment and all she did was stress me out. (I always end up with heartburn.)

For the most part, Noah & Sophia are okay. I alsways bring books and crayons for them or cars and such. I usually know what we are having before we sit down and order right away. I start getting stressed when they are done (and Mommy is not) and they want to get down. Eating out is not a spurr of the moment thing for us and we don't do it very often.

Marek actually behaves really well in restaurants for the most part. The toughest time was around 15 months, when he was really into throwing food and his cup. We seem to have squelched that at this point. He likes people like Ava does, and he usually ends up flirting with ladies around us.

i often go out with my three, my favorite is a yaki-niku place (kind of a japanese version of korean BBQ) where we can sit on tatami floor and there's a kid room right there. sometimes that means the kids run around but at the moment, yaki-niku isn't very popular so we can be the only people there.

another place i like to go to gives toys to small children and also has free drink bar for kids 3 and younger, so i can get them a juice and that occupies them. i also share what i order with my kids (recently hiro has gotten things from the kid menu) and so we finish eating at about the same time.

the noise doesn't bother me much, esp. when we go to a cheapie family restaurant, but it stresses my husband out. we rarely go out with him! OTOH, my kids speak mostly english so other people usually can't understand what they're saying/whining about! lol
