I have been to restaurants 4-5 times with volt. Twice she slept off, so I ate without any problem,other times we managed somehow. Today I had to go out to buy some stuff and one of our favourite restaurants was nearby.We decided to eat there.It is a very small restaurant and is never crowded but we love the food over there. Infact we don’t even check the menu as we know our favourite dishes.
Today the restaurant was occupied almost 50-60% and the moment we entered Volt started crying. Feeding, rhymes, singing nothing pacified her.This time also we quickly ordered our favourite without wasting time but she was OK for a moment and crying next second and we were completely clueless.We even thought of packing the food and eating it at home. But food started coming in, so we decided to eat there itself.
Me and B took turns and took her out while the other one ate.In between I had major doubts like what if they clean the table by mistake when B comes out and asks me to take my turn in eating !!!
Somehow we managed to eat We came out and in few minutes the little bum started smiling 😀 I still don’t know why she cried.But only after seeing her smile we realized that the food was delicious though it was consumed in a hurry with breaks in between.
All the time she was crying there was just one thought in my mind (Not food duh). That I will never ever judge another parent who is trying to console a crying baby. Never.
P.S. Today morning I was complaining to Maya and Tharani that I have nothing in my mind to put up in a post today. Dear God, if you are telling me now ‘see how I created an opportunity for you to post’, I appreciate you with whole heart but please no,not like this.
