This all started a few months back when at the end of a long day I just needed a break from the laundry, housework, cooking, all of it and so my husband and I decided to take the family out to dinner. To put it nicely...it was not a super experience. My five year old felt the need to talk at the very TOP of his lungs whenever he had a thought or idea which seemed to be every other second. He also decided to very randomly knock his whole body into the back of the seat causing the people on the other side to continually look in our direction with 'that' look--Hopefully I'm not the only one who has ever seen 'that' look. My older son (7 years old) was also a chatter-box but only felt like talking when his mouth was absolutely as full as possible and he felt the need to wipe his hands on everything EXCEPT his napkin--leaving his brand new school clothes covered in pizza sauce. All the while my baby cried and whined to his hearts content!! So...by the time we left I was FAR MORE frazzled than I was beforehand and vowed to never EVER take these kids out again! Please tell me I am not the only mom who this has ever happened to. I felt like a failure of a mother and ended up staying up all night long thinking of how I could 'FIX' this problem! I did come up with an idea and got up the next morning (with fingers crossed) and got to work finding the necessary items to put my idea into reality. Anyway, I found these cute little ramekins (so glad that I finally found a good use for them) and some decorative marbles. I used one ramekin per member of the family and put ten little marbles inside.
