It's fun to leave a mess in a restaurant!

Just got back from dinner at a Chinese buffet. Those are always fun. (this is where you'd see me rolling my eyes... if you could see me) The one we have here in town has pretty good food and it's fairly inexpensive, so that's a plus when you're a single mommy with 2 little guys. But then, I didn't pay for it!

We went with my mom and my sister - who had a fight with her girlfriend and escaped (drunk) to our house. So mom paid - yay mom! It's kind of nice sometimes to have the whole group out, and by the time we were finished, my sister was pretty much sober again. We're not a messy bunch, for the most part, but... have you ever taken a 14 month old out to dinner? And fed him noodles? And rice?

Um... yeah.

The floor under his high chair was covered... and I mean covered... in rice and noodles. Not to be gross or anything, but it looked like there were worms and maggots under his chair. Very appetizing. I do hope they vacuumed after we left....

One more thing... I posted the pictures of Jaben in his play on my message board, and the girls there said they think he looks like a young Corey Feldman - which of course I LOVE!! I used to be soooo in love with him!! So whatcha think? Young Corey Feldman? Or board buddies just bein' nice?

Okay, so I know I have already posted two comments on your blog, but you know I'm kind of a comment addict and when I get started, well...you know, it's hard to stop.

I just wanted to say that I SO know what you're talking about regarding the Chinese restaurant with kids thing. I have a friend who has a 6-year-old, a 4-year-old, and a 2-year-old and we went out for Chinese food about a month ago with the whole clan and there was literally rice and noodles on the walls. It was just EVERYWHERE.

And isn't it such fun to leave the mess for the employees to clean up? They're my little people so I usually feel very guilty about it, but I just leave a really good tip... one of these days I just know I"m going to see our picture posted with the words "Do not seat these people"! LOL!
