Child at a restaurant
DO: Invite Them to Dinner on a Weekday
Allison Robicelli: "If we must do a restaurant, make it Monday-Wednesday at about 5 or 6pm. And make it close to my house, because you have no idea how hard travelling has gotten for me. On Monday to Wednesday, restaurants will be slow enough that I won't feel like a giant imposition with a young child, and starting early gives me plenty of time to get out and back home to put them to bed. Just understand that I will be ignoring you 70 percent of the time, and this will upset me more than it upsets you, so please volunteer to hold and play with the baby as much as possible so I can have five minutes to myself. I desperately want to talk to a grown-up, but I may be too exhausted to. It's not you, it's me." [photo]
