Dinner out with Jake

We do not eat out in restaurants as much as we used to...but we may want to start practicing more. Jake is not accustomed to having to sit at a table for longer than 15 minutes, and he has not quite mastered the art of the "inside voice."

My mom and I took Jake and Brooklyn to Poblanos last week for dinner. After fighting with him to drink from a straw (and not put his entire fist in the cup), he ate quite well. He also used the big fork pretty well for a while- until he almost shoved the whole thing down his throat.

When there was just a few bites of food left, we observed this...

Using the hand is one way...
Shoveling from the plate to the table while keeping head down and focused is another...
But just eliminating hands all together and eating straight from the table seems to be the method of choice...

JJ, he got the job done and he's cute so people will only smile at him. At least he didn't fall on the floor and cry like a banshee. I've seen that in restaurants often enough.

Have a great weekend...tp
