The creator of the buffet...

... was not trying to find a way to feed alot of people at once... No the creator of the buffet had to be the parent of a toddler! Eating out has become a NIGHTMARE for us. Here is how the conversation goes in the car... "Where do you want to eat?" "No we can't go there since there will be a wait..." "Nope she won't eat anything there." "Nope they don't have booths we can't keep her corralled." "No they take too long to bring the food." "Where is the closest buffet?"
We have finally discovered the way to eat peacefully! A buffet! Bear gets her food right away and I don't look crazy when I ask the waitress for a bowl of olives! Plus Bear eats free at them for at least a few more months. There is only 1 buffet around us and it really isn't very good at all, however we went there last week just to see how happy it made Bear to have her pick of whatever she wanted to eat and to have it RIGHT then! Her plate was covered in olives, peaches, pears, grapes, and bread. She ate more than she ever eats at home.
Last weekend we decided after this great success at dinner time that we needed to find somewhere for breakfast. Back home this would automatically mean Golden Corral. I looked it up and there was one up here. It sounded like a suburb I recognized so we got in the car and started driving... My phone GPS took us on every back road in the world to get there and what should have been a 30 min. drive turned into 1 1/2 hours!!! It was so awesome though! I remember being a teenager and thinking how UNCOOL it was going to Golden Corral... now I think of it as the best meal out EVER! Amazing how parenthood changes your perspective!
