Restaurants and Kids

Oh how dinner reservations & dining experiences have changed since the kids have arrived, no longer are they at 8pm, They are always local! No don't you dare even think about ordering entrees, or a bottle of wine... (I'd be lucky to skull a glass of Sav B in between the three visits to the toilet and the numerous times I have to leave my seat to pick up food being thrown off the highchair) It's all about being FAST -  In & out, no mucking around lets just eat and go!

I always get that anxious feeling whenever I make a dinner reservation with the kids in tow it sounds a little something like this " Hi I would like to make your earliest booking possible... What 6pm, Gee that's late! Ok I suppose it has to do! Yes, near the play room, and toilets please!  4 plus a high chair,  and can I pre order my glass of wine for arrival? insert laugh ha!, just joking!  (so not joking!! )"

I load the bags with the iPads', colouring books, pencils, anything to enjoy the 45 minutes we will be there.. and off we go!

On the drive in (an entire 5 minutes.... because as I said, always local!) I ask them "what do they want for dinner" to save the arguing over the menu,... I always lay down the rules... Best Manners! Best Behaviour and Best Listening ears! ..... so optimistic right?

We sit down, I order the kids food right away with my glass of wine! ( Priorities!) I then look at my husband holding the menu, and by look I mean I basically stare him down till he hurry's the hell up and decides what he wants so we can order our main meals! NO I don't want to share oysters, are you kidding me?, NO APPERTIZERS, NO ENTREES!

Usually the kids meals arrive, we order ours.... and finish helping the kids with their meals...

Ours arrive, and this is where they order ice cream... which is great as it buys us time to scoff our meals...

ice cream arrives, they eat that whilst husband pays for the bill .... and there you have it!

I forgot to add, there is always a spilt drink, always!

Cheers to not cooking though !

    Buy altcoins for $ 6,000 and sell them for $ 15,000,000

    I'm sure everyone knows the 50 main cryptocurrencies and invests only in them.
    But most people do not even realize that there are super cheap cryptocurrencies
    that grow dramatically tens of thousands of times, such examples have accumulated
    enough when people with an investment of $ 10 dollars earn about $ 500,000.
    We have developed a system based on artificial intelligence that determines
    promising altcoins in 9 different ways, which in the next three years will
    imitate at least 30,000 times with a probability of 94% -100%. In total,
    15 altcoins were discovered in which you can safely invest.
    Now everyone has the opportunity to become a multimillionaire in the next three years.
    Our friend a crypto-millionaire (we will not name the name) looked at the list of 15 altcoins
    that our program calculated and was surprised because he calculated promising altcoins by
    his own method and found 33 altcoins, but just those 15 altcoins that were identified by our program,
    our friend paid special attention to and invested good money in them.
    Even if you invest at least $ 10 in each cryptocurrency ($ 150) and at least one altcoin grows 30,000 times,
    then the income will already be $ 300,000, and if you invest $ 100 ($ 1,500), then the income will already be $ 3,000,000.
    This is a great way for everyone to gain financial freedom without effort, just buy altcoins from our list,
    then wait for them to rise in price tens of thousands of times and then just sell them. We do not sell the program itself.
    she is very expensive. But we are ready to sell a list of 15 altcoins for a small price.
    After payment you will receive a list of 15 altcoins in a text file.
    Hurry up because time passes and crypto sharks are already investing good money in these altcoins, have time to jump on that train and grab your fat piece of the pie.

    Does anyone know what happened to Dime Piece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am having trouble to check out on [url=]Dimepiece LA store[/url]. I've read in Women's Health Mag that they were bought out by a UK-based hedge fund for $50 m. I've just bought the Dimepiece Women's Athletic Club Crewneck Sweatshirt from Ebay and absolutely love it xox
