We're the Parents I used to Warn About...The Fancy Dinner Episode.

Good parent confessions by Alli Worthington at Babble

















It’s not often that a family of seven has dinner at a restaurant that has cloth napkins! When we were down in Savannah at the Westin’s famed Aquastar restaurant, we were not going to miss out chance for a great family meal.

Our wild four-year-old gave us one of those moments as parents that separates the mature, dedicated parents from the wishy-washy ones.

What would you do if you were stuck between giving in and going home?

You’ll see what we are made of below…

    Except a great dinner was had by all. :)

Yep,  wishy-washy. But the meal was fantastic! I say it’s still a win. :)
