To error is human....



To do it twice is stupid.  And.my.dumb.ass did it twice...stupid...stupid....stupid..... by thinking we could bring our toddler to a nice restaurant and escape unscathed. I mean we went to dinner last Friday night at a fairly decent place and had not one damn issue yes the restaurant was a little bit more family friendly but it was still a nice decent place and all was fine. I do not understand why it was so difficult last night. We had a good friend in town and we decided to get a few of us to go out to dinner. As soon as we heard were we were dining we should have had our heads examined I wanted to keep the little one home but my friend wanted too see her and remaining positive I decided that it would not be too bad.  Well it sucked!  During this whole uncomfortable ordeal I was being told that she was not being that bad.  I on the other hand as her mama knew exactly what everyone was about to be in store for which made for a very anxiety ridden dinner. I was uncomfortable, felt disconnected with the group and felt like the volcano was about to erupt at that point all I wanted to do was to go home.  I could see that my daughter felt trapped{the booth was cramped and awful} and in turn could feel the breakdown coming from a mile away. 


You begin to notice the dirty looks from the strangers from the tables around you. How do I know what the look is,  because I used to give that very same exact look before I was married with children.  Before melt down point we decided to defuse the situation and leave midway through dinner with our doggie bags in tow. I apologized profusely and we left. I was pissed because 
  • one the food was WAY overrated and certain items were just not good {my entree was stone cold why did I not send it back because I did not wait another hour for our food. 
  • two because my daughter behaved like a little shit
My husband on the other hand was cool as a cucumber my mellow ying to my over stimulated yang.  I have now FINALLY figured out that there needs to be husband and me time and family time and the two shall never intermix again until the age were GG can appreciate it. I am making reservations to Gary Danko as we speak.  I want GG exposed to all types of cuisine and culture and in order to do this she is going to have to be a little older. As her punishment she got her Ipad taken away from her for 2 days which has been met with over drama -god is she 2 or 12 wtf?


I need to remember that I am no longer Sex and the City and a little bit more Yo Gabba Gabba 
Note: Ms. GG is sick today so it looks like last nights little discipline issue was the beginning of "snotathon" 50 2012....

When my kids had kids, I told them to just put their life on hold for 5-10 years accept it and any fun (big people stuff) during that time is a bonus!
