Little Moments Monday – We Only Spread Our Legs After Dinner

Little Moments Monday at The Divine Miss Mommy

*Button by the Fabulous Kas at Southern Bella’s Ways to Save

We just back from our weekly dinner at Outback Steakhouse. My four year old who eats like a bird nothing finished first, of course. She laid down in the space next to me. I was still eating dinner so I just let her plus there were not any other tables around us.

I look over and see her laying on her back, with her knees up and legs spread ala “feet in the stirrups style.” I am instantly horrified. I make her sit up and explain to her the a lady does not sit like that. We don’t just lay around with our legs spread.

Then I explained to her that she didn’t even have a bite of her dinner. I said, “You need to have a few bites of your food at least before you can be finished.” I left it at that.

She then eats a few bites of her broccoli and the baby (our two year old) comes over to her side of the booth.

She then puts her arm around the baby and begins to lecture her:

“Babe (this is what she always calls her), you cannot lay down on the booth. But if you do, you cannot spread your legs until after dinner. You have to at least get dinner first.”

Truer words have never been spoken. Right?

  7. That is funny. My five year-old daughter sometimes tries to apply the “lady like” rules to me. I keep explaining that those rules don’t apply to dad.
