Here’s what happened when a totally tired family of five talked about just how tired they all were.

Summer vacation’s over, school’s back in session and families everywhere are wishing they could squeeze just a few more minutes out of their snooze buttons each morning.

The Doctor and Dad household is no exception. With a full-time first grader, a part-time preschooler and a baby who’s decided to drop her second nap way sooner than we’d have liked, we’re as busy as ever – and most definitely sleepy.

Check out her article now, then read our complete answers to all her questions about going out to eat with kids below!

What types of supplies (meal and play items) should new moms pack when dining out with an infant? How about for a young toddler?

When your baby’s a newborn, going out to eat is surprisingly painless. That’s because at this point, your little one still sleeps a lot. So just bring the car seat in with you, set it up on the ground, on the seat next to you or in one of those special car seat holders that some restaurants provide (fancy!), and your infant will probably snooze through most of your meal. For maximum dining leisure, make sure to feed your baby shortly before you plan to be at the restaurant – because once your baby’s belly is full, it will be a whole lot easier to fill yours.
