A month or so ago, I was talking to a couple who was sharing with me about another couple and their children, and how they did eating out together. They told me that the mother always carries a pack of game cards. I never thought of it before, but the idea is BRILLIANT and one that I will definitely use myself! For this mom, it was just what they needed to enjoy as a family while they waited for the server to bring their meal! Not only is this an excellent way to entertain the children/keep quiet, but it’s a wonderful family memory for EVERYONE!
Additionally, for this family, the card game was handy for the end of the meal too, because the dad, they said, is a slow coffee sipper and likes to enjoy a cup of coffee at the end of the meal. So, it works out nicely as Mom and the kids enjoy another round of cards, and Dad enjoys his coffee!
So, is their a pack of old maid or go fish in your pocketbook or diaper bag? Not a bad idea! I think I will try that one too!
