overcoming average(?)

because it’s something the world just needs less of

A couple weeks ago I went to my favorite local restaurant by myself. I’ve never had a problem doing things like eating or seeing a movie by myself. I was thinking a couple days ago that maybe I could find a time some time soon to do that again, maybe when Amanda had a play date with someone. Then I thought that I should just bring my boy with me and we could just have a little lunch together. That’s something I would want to do when he’s older anyway, so I might as well start practicing now.

Today we went to lunch at that same place and it was really great. My boy is a little peculiar about his eating habits though. Sometimes he has to feed himself, others I have to feed him. Sometimes he doesn’t want to eat anything regardless of how long it’s been since he ate last. Sometimes he freaks about it, sometimes he’s just interested in other things. Today was one of the days he just didn’t feel like eating much at all, but I brought a sippy cup of milk for him that he couldn’t get enough of.

Another funny thing about my son: he loves getting people’s attention. When I take him to Target or the grocery store, he’ll literally look around and around at everyone he sees hoping to get a reaction. Whenever someone (especially a female) notices him and smiles even a little, he smiles as big as he can and yelps out a little laugh. He also does this in restaurants.

So he wouldn’t eat today, but he would drink from his cup. And he smiled at everyone in this restaurant that is also very well known for it’s bar. Today, at lunch, all my son wanted to do was drink and flirt. I don’t know whether to be proud or worried.
