I had not been one to take advantage of free meals for my kids because frankly I couldn't stand taking them anywhere and in an effort to quite them down, I would rather throw chicken nuggets at them in my own private kitchen. But...I regret it. I wish I had been one of those moms that was scared to take her kids out in public but did it anyways. We need to embrace the mess...somewhere else. Hat's off to these restaurants that give us a chance to be loud, lively and living large with a few bucks left over in my pocket because I didn't have to pay for the kiddies. Enjoy!
