Setting: A large family restaurant with a big menu and casual atmosphere.
Objective: No cooking, No cleaning. Not leaving with a headache.
Enter: A frazzled Mom holding her young daughter’s hand, “Come here, Kailee. Sit down, we are going to have dinner. We don’t want to disturb all these nice people trying to eat.” Mom pulls out a chair, pats the seat, and trys to coax her child to sit down and behave like an adult.
Well, kids are not mini-adults so, why should they be expected to behave like us. Kids are naturally curious about new unexplored surroundings and need a few seconds to adjust to their location. Use that quiet time to your advantage and de-crease your perceived anxiety over the judgment of your parenting skills. But, always be prepared!
Enter your friend and savior the magic bag. A magic bag is simply a bag that you ONLY pull-out in public places that you want the child to be quiet and behave in a certain way. The magic bag works like magic if you rotate its contents like you circulate the toys in the toy box so, they are always new.
The contents of the magic bag vary from child to child but, should includes a few staples.
Pencil/Pen (when child can write)
snack (tide them over until the food arrives-small amount raisins/cereal)
FREE easy to carry string bag included with each doll purchased!(while supply lasts)
