You know what’s nice? Splurging on dinner out at a restaurant and sharing a ‘peiceful’ meal with my husband, son, nephew and a television set. I can’t tell you how many times we sat in front of the TV during dinner at home that I would think, “This is soo nice! I wish we could do this outside of the living room. Parks, restaurants - why don’t more people eat and watch TV with their kids there?”
Then it occurred to me: I’m a Mom. I can do whatever the hell I want! If Dylan and Braden can’t keep their tiny traps shut during dinner, why not shove some cartoons in their faces? We already do it when we’re driving. What’s the difference? God invented portable DVD players for a reason, that’s my motto! Sure, the waitress gave me a weird look, but she looked like she was only 19. I’m guessing she doesn’t have kids!
