Ok, I went to Cheddar's for dinner. Its your typical wanna-be-irish-pub-type theme restaurant. What great burgers and nachos, btw. {G}

Anyway, my husband and I sat down at a quiet table for two.. five minutes into the meal this family walks in and gets seated at a large table right next to us.

One kid, two kid (red fish blue fish), three... no four.. wait... I lost count.
Finally- when they all sat down the Kiddy-Count came up to an astonishing 8!!!!

Well, my husband and I figured "we're in for it now"... and the parents of this tribe looked at us with warm, but nervous smiles and said.. "And you thought you were going to have a nice quiet dinner.."

We all laughed but in the back of our heads we were thinking "UH OH!".

What do you know. Every child, from ages ranging from 6 months to 12 years old, sat quietly, were polite and waited for their sibling to "list" off their dinner order before "listing" their own choice.

I was absolutely AMAZED! When most can't control one... this couple sat with 8 happy, behaved children. I just wanted to share this with you all!!!!! I should have had a cam-corder with me, cause no one will believe it!!LOL
