I think it’s safe to say that most people don’t want their lifestyles to change too much after having kids, although the shift is pretty much inevitable. I remember my husband and I saying that we were still going to travel the world, go on adventures, and eat at fancy restaurants weekly right before our son was born. After he arrived, of course, we realized that going out to eat meant going to “kid-friendly” places, and taking trips meant driving around for an hour or two in the hopes that our son would fall asleep!
Now that our son is five-years old, I’m proud to say that we can take him pretty much anywhere with us, and he is always on his best behavior. I would never bring him to a nice restaurant if I thought he could not behave accordingly. When he was an infant, however, I wouldn’t have dared to bring him to an “adult” restaurant. I was too concerned that my baby would start to cry and ruin the night for other diners who were trying to enjoy their evening.
Celebrity parents, on the other hand, don’t seem to be slowed down one bit by their kids. They are often seen traveling with very young children, and taking them out to eat at restaurants on a regular basis.
Just this week, Pink and Carey Hart brought their newborn daughter, Willow, to dinner at Madeo, which is definitely not a shabby place for a meal. I’m guessing that little Willow was asleep the entire time. I can’t imagine that the other patrons of Madeo would appreciate trying to enjoy their meal with a screaming baby around.
What are your thoughts on the subject? Is taking young kids to nice restaurants appropriate or not?
