I never thought I'd...#1
I never thought I'd be one of those moms at a restaurant, surrounded by evidence of a baby (i.e., toys, burp cloth and booster seat), but eating solo. Aha! Now I get why you seldom see babies at restaurants past 7 p.m. This is their wind-down time, that is, if they're not already snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug in bed. I thought I was doing a great job at molding Izzy to "our" schedule and not conforming to "hers." Apparently this only works between the hours of 7 and 7. Anything in between equals trying to keep your cool in a public place while your baby is squirming and/or eating solo. I knew this. I just had to try it out for myself. Lesson learned.
