We had no food for dinner in the house tonight (how is that possible after a trip to Wh.ole Fo.ods yesterday?) and B welcomed me up from my nap with an announcement: “Let’s have an early dinner – I’m starving. The grocery store buffet (which is honestly quite good!) or Micky’s?” This was music to my ears as we hadn’t left the house all day. We had freezing ran the first half of the day and it just felt good to stay in. But it was time to get out.
All of us were in our “stay at home” clothes but we did not care. We packed up some fruit for Matthew, loaded ourselves into the car, and headed to dinner. This place is awesome for families – super good food (for bar food) and lots of room for Matthew to stretch his legs. BUT – they only have two low tables that accommodate high chairs and when we got there, a large party had put them both together. HMMMMM…. what to do? We decided to try out the booster chair for the FIRST time.
Big boy status!
We ditched the booster rather quickly and just let him sit on the bench with us, but it was fun to try and honestly, dinner went really well. Matthew ate more than he’s eaten while out to dinner in a long time (an entire large chicken breast, three thick tomato slices, a lot of cottage cheese, and some fruit). I wonder if the freedom made him more interested in coming back to eat his meal? Who knows, but it was great!
