For that reason, we rarely ate at any place where you don't look up to order until the youngest was 3 and responded to threats to sit still and behave. I was super-sensitive about disturbing other diners and didn't care for carrying a crying kid out of the restaurant while my food gets cold.Ah, here's an interesting conundrum. My 18-month-old has the attention span you'd expect when we're out at restaurants.
Would you, a patron, prefer that I:
A) force her to stay in the high chair and whine for 40 minutes?
B) let her down to run around and say hi to everyone?
Those are my choices. Apparently someone is going to be annoyed either way. (FWIW, I always choose B.)
