It was a rainy and cold day here Dallas today so we decided to make today a lazy Saturday. We hung out at home in our pajama’s most of the day, then headed out to dinner at one of our favorite Mexican food restaurants, Mi Cocina. (If you’re ever in Dallas you gotta check it out!)
It’s impossible for me to leave Noah in his carrier when we’re out at dinner. In fact it never fails that before our food is brought out, Noah will be sitting on my lap. He’s just so cute, I can’t help it. :)
If you bumped into me while I’m out at dinner with Noah you may mistake me for a member of Cirque Du Soleil. The way I carefully hold Noah on my lap with one hand, while skillfully eating my dinner (and trying to keep his hands out of my chicken enchiladas) with the other, is something straight out of a Ciruqe show. It’s pretty entertaining to watch.
Ahhhh…the joys of being a father. I love it.
Time For Some UnFun
Since we’re in the process of moving to a new house we had to run a grown up errand after dinner. We took Noah to do something that every kid (and every dad) loves to do…. lamp shopping. (Did you sense the sarcasm…?) It wasn’t all that bad since I learned something new while at the lamp store…..I had no idea there were SO MANY LAMPS…! Wow. I hope I never have to go into a lamp store again, I still have a headache.
I’m impressed with how well Noah does when we are out and about. He’s so easy going, and just enjoys doing whatever we do. It’s so much fun….although I’ll assume that all changes when he gets old enough to talk.
How do you keep your kids (young or old) occupied when you take them along on grown up errands? Noah won’t be 10 months old forever…and I want to learn from your wisdom!
