Having kids makes it more difficult to enjoy going out to dinner, but not impossible. I like to visit restaurants that won’t have a long wait, bring along entertainment (my kids love Imagine Ink Packs), pack bibs and disposable placemats for my little ones (and lots of wipes!), and ask for kid’s meals to come out first.
Plan ahead and you can enjoy eating out with the family. There are even plenty of restaurants in Connecticut where kids eat free. There’s no worry about rushing around to cook dinner and there’s no guilt that your kids wasted food because it’s free. Everyone wins!
