Do you remember the long, leisurely brunches that comprised a weekend morning back in your pre-child days? Neither do we. Once the wee ones arrive, meals out often become a rushed and hurried affair, quickly cramming in your meal before a meltdown ensues.
This week’s CMC, Penelope Cruz, was spotted eating out, holding her baby Leo with one hand, while eating with the other, as only a mommy can do. For mere mortals, negotiating the fork, knife, spoon and coffee cup requires two hands. Mothers of babies however, seem to have finely-tuned hand-eye coordination, allowing them to deftly maneuver the various utensils, feeding themselves and keeping the ever-enticing knife out of baby’s reach, all at the same time.
Whether it’s eating with one hand, having an app-laden smartphone, or special “restaurant-only toys” on hand, moms have devised some pretty ingenious ways for keeping babies and kids happy while dining out. What’s your best tip for keeping little ones content at a restaurant?
