The Greatest Love of All
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be"
Whitney Houston - The Greatest Love of All
Cheers Whitney, I couldn't agree more! But for f***s sake keep them out of restaurants until such times that they have become the future. Or at least until the little darlings no longer require special seats and jars of mush heated. Leave them with granny if they are likely to throw a tantrum and make a scene. In this restaurant that is my job and I do it well. Having two of us at it is really just gonna piss people off. So for the love of sweet baby Jesus in the manger leave them with a sitter and go out and enjoy yourself.
IF, and as you can see its a big IF, you have to bring your progeny out, take control of them! When I was a lad, not that I'm a lass now, I never shifted off my seat. I just sat there eating what was ordered for me and syaing "please" and "thank-you" when prompted. Not these days though. Now its like every restaurant is an adventure playground. I wont be held responsible when little Dick or Dora runs into me and gets a face full of rare sirloin with pepper sauce. You have been warned.
Oh and this rant wasn't directed at Mrs Houston-Brown in particular but to all parents. Keep 'em on a lead or i'll sort em!
