We never go out to eat anymore, which I guess is a good thing. But whenever people ask us, I'm so quick to say no because I don't want to deal with a screaming kid. I know it'd be good practice for him, but I can't remember the last time I actually ate a meal without getting up 49583 times.
My family will always say, don't worry if he cries or acts up, people understand. But I refuse to be that parent that just lets their kid scream and throw a fit. I know he's young and all he wants to do is walk around and explore. We've tried toys, movies, phones, crayons, etc. He just doesn't like to be confined.
Now that I'm done venting...anyone else stop going out to eat for awhile too? lol
