Going to dinner with young kids!

We went out last night for my mother-in-law's birthday.

Watch out China Blossom!! Here we are; 6 adults, 2 toddlers and a baby.
Watch out me; Where did I have to sit: Across from toddler, beside another toddler and on the other side the baby.

So ok two of those are mine. I made them. I guess I need to deal with them at dinner.

Here is what it looked like. Everyone went to the buffet to get there plates.
I stayed to watch 1 baby and 1 toddler. I am feeding the baby on my left and picking up crayons, mini trucks and cars and randomly a hippo off the ground to my right.

When I got my food it was worse. Crayon and noddles flying on my right, spoons, glasses, place mats, rattles and my plate all being shifted and tossed on my left. GOD....why does anyone try to go out and eat with babies? That is what I was thinking the entire time.

I turn to my left and try to feed the baby his bottle who is taking a sip and swatting the bottle away and when I look back toward the right....There is MY insane toddler spooning fried rice onto his sippy cup (and how the heck did he get the car back?..The one that is driving through the plate of sweet sauce and chicken fingers!!!!) In a matter of seconds he had turned his dinner plate into a mountain high mess of milk, rice and other slop all the while driving around in it blissfully.

The horrified waitress luckily had a sense of humor and was friendly with the boys.

It got worse with ice cream but I am stressed out just thinking about it now :)

I love this.. seems so typical. I must admit it has slightly improved but I dare not try dinner out with the kids.
