Eating at restaurants with the boys has become challenging. Their attention span lasts about 15 minutes. Then starts the whining and food-tossing and wiggling around in their seats. We are forced to pound our food into our mouths at rapid speeds ensuring heartburn for later.
We do anything and everything to keep them entertained. Books, toys, games, coloring. Again, this doesn’t keep their interest for long. But they can certainly surprise you when you least expect it.
My mom and I were with the boys in Jimmy John’s the other day. We were hoping for a tantrum-free lunch. A country song came on and suddenly both boys hopped up and started dancing! No one was in the restaurant so instead of making them sit down we laughed about it. It was hilarious.
Maybe from now on we’ll have to go to restaurants that play country music!
