The events you are about read actually took place, names have been changed to protect the guilty.
11:45 "Poopy head" and I walk into one Chick fil a restaurant for an enjoyable lunch with friends.
11:50 "lucky to still be growing" notices a play scape, and rushes off to play.
11:51- 11: 57 Mommy and her adult friend exchange calm, rational conversation.
12:00 Food arrives and Mommy tries to retrieve "cranky pants".
12: 05 "Booger face" throws herself to the ground claiming she doesn't want to eat!
12:10-12:25 Children eating, and jovial, sane adult conversation is allowed to continue.
12:26 Children return to the beloved play scape.
1:00 Mommy tries to explain to " The girl that was supposed to go to Disneyland in December, but might not be now" that it's time to leave.
We did eventually leave Chick fil a after many "full body on the ground tantrums", crying, screaming, hitting, many looks of shock, even more looks of pity. I know with time, and maybe some Prozac we will leave the house again one day.
