    Manticore, I don’t think people who are stable and responsible should ever apologize for procreating.

    I work in a restaurant and my favorite is when the children color all over the table and their parents think its adorable.

    when my kids do something stupid, I always smile and sort of whisper “they’re gifted” just to be an ass. but i do think most parents believe their kids are gifted.
    for the sign in Whole Foods, where it says “mother of three children” for the AmyD sign, i wanted it to say “mother of three, [i]clearly gifted[/i] childred” but i was afraid people would think i was serious.

    I used to be a kid in a restaurant, and I was a picky eater (and sometimes annoying), but as I grew up, I learned how to be a model restaurant patron.

    I’m happy to report the baby has joined us for dinner at Rigsby’s, Sage, and Haiku. She’s been nice enough to sleep through almost every outing, so we’ll see how it goes as we get older.

    Too cheap to hire a baby sitter?

    And, as a snide theory, I truly believe that everybody secretly wants children. They just have not met the right person with whom they are willing to have children.

    Uhm. No.

    Again, no. I have no interest in having a child. I’m in my *ahem* mid-30s and I’ve never had a desire to have kids, nor have I ever been afraid of the responsibility. I simply recognize that I have neither the patience nor the willingness to be flexible with my time and money (kids are EXPENSIVE!!!) to accommodate children.

    Some may call it selfish (like my mom…), but I think it’s just realistic. Why bring a child into the world if I’m not willing to make changes or sacrifices for him/her. I think it’s more selfish to have one (or two, or three…) and make him/her suffer a parent’s inability to accommodate.

    Too lazy to think of a clever taunt?

    Yeah, we’re totally on a budget, which is why we eat at places like Rigsby’s, Sage, and Haiku.

    Being cheap has nothing to do with being on a budget or eating at Rigsby’s, Sage and Haiku. I’ve encountered many people in the city who are self-indulgent and cheap.

    Perhaps you posted this because you heard the restauranteur interviewed this morning on Fox 28 Good Day Columbus, as I did.

    He said of the comments he is receiving, they are 11 to 1 supportive of his policy.

    He also said that he chose age 7 as an acceptable age to allow in his restaurant, because at that age they have been to school, where they have been forced to stay in their seat, and have learned that there are rules that they have to follow.

    I don’t have a problem with his rule, it is his restaurant so he can set the rules, and he is the one to stands to lose money.
