My wife and I were spoiled when Rylan was born because we were still given the chance to go out to eat at a sit down restaurant. From what I understand, this is not always a luxury that many new parents get. Rylan would sleep through the noise without a hitch.
Now that Rylan has grown older and does not sleep nearly as much, this has certainly made it more difficult. I made a post a few months ago about a pretty disastrous attempt at eating out. I would say, the issue may have started around that time. Rylan now begins to get fussy once our food has arrived and we begin to eat. Up until this time, he will be great and playful but once the food comes, he flips a switch.
My question of the day is. Is Rylan waiting for the food to arrive before getting fussy, or do the waiters simply wait for him to become fussy before bringing out the food?
Regardless of the reason, it certainly makes having dinner more difficult. My wife or I will then need to keep Rylan occupied by bouncing him. Sitting down with Rylan appears to be a sin in his books and he begins to get fussy if you even think about doing so. How he knows this just blows me away.
Anyone have any tips? Besides taking your food to go that is...
