I sometimes feel guilty for how familiar my child is with all of the restaurants in town. I mean, what kind of mother AM I that my three year old could give a well-informed tour of the city’s dining establishments, including who has the best Chicken Salad, Grilled Cheeses, and coloring pages?!
I mean, I love to cook, but we apparently go out a lot, too. Especially for lunch.
So the other day, we were meeting Ashley, AJ, and Tessa at Taziki’s for lunch, a great casual Greek restaurant in town.
I told Ali where we were going, and of course she knew the place.
“I LOVE Taziki’s!!! They have really fun toys!!!”
Hmm…maybe her restaurant knowledge isn’t as good as I feared. “No baby, Taziki’s has food, not toys.”
She mumbles in the back seat….”They HAVE toys.”
Whatever. I guess she’ll just be disappointed.
When we got to our table, Ali quickly proved herself right and myself, as usual, completely wrong.
Oh yeah…I DID take this picture of Ali and her Taziki Toy last time we were there…
And Taziki’s provides such versatile toys for their patrons…it can be used as a Spyglass-On-The-Wrong-Eye, OR it can transform a couple of Fairies into Fly Girls!
Granted, the waitress MIGHT have had trouble locating our table since they couldn’t see our order numbers, but the Fly Girls didn’t mind…they were too busy, as AJ informed us, “Saving that day!!!!” to eat anyway.
Now if only I could find where Taziki’s buys their fun toys, I’d have a perpetually entertained toddler…because really, who needs REAL toys anyway?!
