...with taking my toddler out to lunch today. I went out with 6 friends and 5 babies (10 months - 22 months) and had to get my lunch bagged and leave! My son was screaming and running around and basically wanting to play ANYWHERE but in his high chair. It was so embarrassing. All of the other kids were acting like perfect little lunch angels, too, so I felt like I looked like the "bad mom".
Do you ever feel like "Why MY kid?" when you go out?
*Update* One of my "mommy" friends called after lunch and invited me over to her house after she got home. My son and her son ran around and played, and she and I got some "quality" mom time together, talking and enjoying ourselves! There was even a glass of Malbec involved... my son enjoyed his playdate and I know I have a true friend! :)
