Eating out as a family doesn’t happen too often for us. Trying to enjoy a meal with a 3 year old that still has a very limited understanding of boundaries and a recently mobile baby who is no longer happy being strapped in – well it’s just not that relaxing. Put it this way, i can think of better ways to spend 40 quid.
So i guess this weeks moment is not that ordinary but when we do go to the ‘cafe’ (read pub) this is the ordinary setting. S in a highchair with an infinite supply of rice cakes, F in the care of the auto nanny, J (behind the camera) trying to watch the football and me with a large glass of ‘mummy’s juice’. There is often a fair amount of sugary bribery involved because sometimes you just have to choose your battles, if nothing else the wine certainly helps it all ‘feel’ a bit more relaxing :)
