    No comment from Holly (maybe she’s stumped on the varieties of spoons).

    Family wedding proposal night?

    Who’s Eliot think she’s kidding?? No one should ever take minors to upscale restaurants. It’s out of their maturity league.

    Yes! I ranted about this on Tuesday, only you made it sound more appropriate. Again, the McDonald’s and babysitter was surely available. I bet Phil regrets bringing the kids, now.

    Naaah, it’s a teaching opportunity. The girls need to learn that every dinner outing shouldn’t be at a McDonald’s or KFC kind of place.

    The kid has a point. Paying 5x what the food is worth, having to wear church clothes for no good reason, and using a ton of extra silverware, all while not being able to have any fun, is NOT “mature.” It’s just stupid.

    However, if you don’t teach them now they won’t behave appropriately later. I’ve seen plenty of adults in good to fine restaurants not to mention McD’s) who have no clue about manners.

    But really, what IS it with all the forks? (Snicker!)

    I agree that kids should learn how to behave in a nice restaurant. My kids have been going out to restaurants (no fast food) since they were little (and no, there were no tantrums or wandering around because I didn’t tolerate it), and they know how to act. They sit quietly without electronics, order with manners, and they willingly ask for vegetables rather than fries. Yes, they’re still working on cutting normal sized bites and waiting for everyone to be served before you start eating, but that’s normal, impatient kid behavior and it’ll come eventually.

    She does have a point. WHY NOT just lick off your one fork? It’s all going in the same mouth.

    Sister and I never been to a fancy restaurant as our parent never sought first class. So no need to worry about the extra silverware.

    This is a second marriage for both of us, and neither of us would have considered dating, not to mention marrying, a person our children didn’t like. We also agreed these were “our” kids, not yours and mine. We’re going to be married long after the kids are grown and flown, so we chose wisely.
