Dining out with an infant

No, it's not me… but my friend Harold has written an extraordinary article on his recent attempt to eat out with his wife and baby daughter. The article is hilarious, endearing, and also (as I'm told by my friends who have kids) right on the money.

Here are some highlights from the article:

This explains why families with more than a few kids vanish from social situations for months at a time: they are actually in a fold of space/time, living a single day of looking after their kids! They emerge for major holidays, blinking in surprise that it's a different season, unsure how much time has passed or what year it is.

Note for those without babies: "fuss" is a genteel code word for "shriek incessantly and with ever growing volume, with the attendant flailing of arms and contorted face usually reserved for victims of dismemberment in a horror film".
