No need to apologize!

My gal pal Adrienne commented on my last post about being guilty of throwing moms dirty looks in restaurants. No need to worry, we all have! I know I am guilty. Believe me, there are a LOT of moms out there that don't give a crap what there kids do while in a restaurant and that is very frustrating. Nothing makes me madder than to see kids misbehaving and the mom simply ignoring it or just not even trying to discipline the child in public situations. That is rude to the other eaters around you to *allow* your kids to be wild. As a mom, your job is to teach your child how to behave in all situations and some moms fail miserably at this. They just don't seem to care to take the time to discipline at all. I have no respect for those moms. Those poor kids never learn manners and end up being spoiled adults. Granted, I do know that kids do tend to wild by nature, and that is why the moms have to make the decision where to sit in the restaurant. If you are going to be having a lot of rowdy little kids, please sit out of the way as possible. We knew that our kids were going to be loud and hard to control, so we respectfully sat as far in the back of the restaurant as we could. There was no one sitting in our section. I felt that was the right thing for us to do for all the other customers. I know that when me and hubby go out for date nights, we don't want to be surrounded by screaming kids with food flying everywhere ;)
