Many young parents will tell you that they forgot what it means to have a romantic dinner, or even what it means having a slow and relaxing one.
Dinner becomes the equivalent of consuming enough calories to play the next few hours with your kid before getting him/her to sleep.
The time you have to enjoy equals to the time the kid eats- about five minutes. After that you start changing: first you play and your partner eats, then the other way around J
Imagine my surprise and gratitude, when few days ago as the little one happily told us that he finished eating, and escaped from his chair, he was met by the restaurant staff who started showing him around and playing with him. As I approached to them the magic words followed: “Don’t worry, he is in good hands. Please, enjoy the dinner!”
WOW J I have never before heard such a message. This is when I thought that somebody geniunely takes care about the parents, and their small special moments. And it does not matter at all how long were they able to entertain the little one, the mere intention is just priceless. Thank you!
