You are welcome. If you go to Mike's, skip the Alligator, hahaha I didn't order it, but tasted it. I usually stick with what I know. lol<quoted text>
Thanks for that info. I have written down all the restaurant names that you and AB have suggested. We would only go once in a while for a treat, and that's why I don't mind expensive. We take the little guy with us, and he has very good restaurant table manners. We use opportunities like this to teach him, and he has learned not to be rude and not to make noise to disturb other diners. He's going to be a ladies'man someday. He loves to flirt with the waitresses and strikes up conversations with any lovely lady he encounters...Not so sure that's a good thing...he's only 8 years old.
We did the same thing with our son. Wish more people did. I don't why some people let their kids act up without doing anything or taking them out to the car/bathroom or somewhere they don't disturb people trying to eat with their squalling. lol My son started with the nurses when he was born. I have pictures of him and every nurse from each shift before we left the hospital. Some of them are so adorable with him as little as he was looking all adoring and in awe of who was holding him. We left with more "freebies" than any mother on the floor. lol He then went on with it like your little one. Just working the waitresses etc..and he still does at 26. He is too funny. His friends call him a chick magnet. Luckily, he listened to what he was being taught and treats them with great respect, polite, helpful, etc..(parents love him) and does not have any baby mommas out there. I remember when he was in middle school and I bought him a box of condoms, told him if he got active like everyone was starting to I wanted him to stay protected, although I didn't condone early experiences I wanted him to be prepared. Told him I would restock when he needed them. Later on that evening I had went up to ask him and his friend if he wanted dinner and everyone of those condoms had been blown up and were all over the room like balloons. I laughed my butt off. Then I told him him when he was ready for girls let me or his father know and we would make sure he had what he needed to keep him free of disease or early fatherhood. I still laugh as I write this remembering that day. Of course, he didn't care how expensive that big box was. lol He was an adorable baby/child with those big blue eyes and dimples. He is still a handsome young man and child free. Too many unwanted children out there and kids being tied for life having them too early. He is in no hurry and neither am I.
