Flying eggplant!!! DUCK!

So I have an issue.

We are not big eating out people. Personally I don't want my kids eating garbage, but more importantly, I don't want to deal with Finley in public!

Today we went to Lowe's with my Mom and Dad to pick out a shower for them, (Gary is redoing their downstairs bathroom) and after dad said "Lets go for Pizza."

After some thinking I thought "sure, what could go wrong with 4 adults and 2 kids?"

We are going to Maine in 2 months and since we don't ever go out to eat, seriously we've taken the girls out a total of 4 times since they were born, it would be a good idea to get them used to going out to eat before our vacation.

Off for Pizza we went. Everything was fine happy ha-ha until our food came and Finley started literally chucking/over hand throwing food. I couldn't believe the height and distance this girl could get!

Eggplant fries were practically going over my head. I was trying to block them as they were coming at me and Dad, I must have looked insane with my daughter across from me pelting me with fries. I was so worried she was going to hit someone sitting behind me! I couldn't believe it, I don't think anyone could. We all just sat there watching in a stooper not sure what to do.

Finally someone took her food away, or she threw it all, I'm honestly not sure anymore what happened?

All I know is my daughter is a food chucker and I don't know what to do about it.........any ideas? Someone please give me some pointers before a sweet little old lady loses an eye.

For a while we had to do the one piece of food at a time game. It's a pain but it worked if they were hungry. We also usually try to go to family friendly places so hopefully people won't be too annoyed if the girls get a little crazy.

We've been taking the girls out since they were born. I just graduated to actually ordering them food to eat from the menu so I would venture to say they are used to the atmosphere. Maybe you're due for some more outings before your trip? You don't have to feed them their dinner for the menu, I never did. They either ate before we left or munched on whatever I brought for them.

I also recommend these use and toss placemats. I got them at target and they stick down on the table so they aren't eating off the crusty table. I think ours were sesame street so that's right up your alley. I found them at Tarjay I believe.
