Harold the Destroyer strikes again

We broke quarantine to go out to dinner. It is my husband's 28th birthday so we wanted to have a nice celebration dinner. Well I think that my husband's birthday curse struck again because Harold the Destroyer emerged in full force. His first trick was to choke on a gold fish cracker and throw up a bit of the baby food that I had just fed him. That really didn't phase us a bit because Evan had done much much worse in his puking days.

Harold then upped the ante deciding that he could not be out shone by his brother. While I was getting a bit of the baked cinnamon apples from Evan's dinner on my fork for Harry to eat he grabbed my freshly filled not even a sip missing drink and threw it on the floor. That was not the first drink that he has spilled but it sure made the biggest mess. He the proceeded to watch all the reactions to his glorious mess and he even laughed a bit in triumph.


Look at that handsome baby in the mirror! I bet he gets to destroy all sorts of fun things.

WOW! He has the potential to break Aunty Heather's family record of spilling 2 drinks in one meal. Its a worthy goal and one that should be easy for you, "Harry the hellion"

I remember the days! Finally, we just stopped taking the kids out to dinner. It was never worth it;)

Well in Harry's defense it really was our waiter's fault because he placed the drink too close to Harry. I doubt very much that the waiter was very used to dealing with little kids. Evan is a great restraunt eater and I would hate to have to give it up because of Harry.

Nice. So at least you can laugh about it. And at least there wasn't poop involved...you never get over the restaurant outings involving runny poop.

Oh, you lead such a 'life on the edge' there with Harry, don't you??

My condolences and commisserations... I can't tell you how many 'destructions' my kids have wreaked over the years!

My daughter went through a phase where goldfish made her throw up a little, too! I honestly think they get so excited over those things that they just cram as many as they can down their throats. LOL.

P.S. harold the destroyer, meet my daughter, leah the looter. LOL.

Okay,

First time little H. ever sat in a high chair was at the local Italian chain restaurant. Husband had ordered a glass of "HOUSE RED" to go with his dinner.

Tiny son flung the whole glass into the diaper bag, which was unzipped and contained ONE disposable and about 20 cloth diapers.

All of which suddenly looked like the St. Valentine's massacre had just occurred inside our diaper bag.

Yeah, those little wild guys are just too fling-happy! Talk about sucking all the romance out of the room...

I'm impressed you took both kids out! I can't remember when we last did that!

Hope you enjoyed the celebration. Was the food good?

The food was very good. We went to Chilis. We have been pretty unadventurous about restraunts since we had kids becuase I don't want to go to one and get dirty looks from other cutsomers. When we went it was obviously kid hour because just about everyone had at leats one kid eating with them.
