Had a small party with a friend family. The family had come with two kids. A fifteen-month-old girl and a four-year-old boy.
A dinner with kids used to be messy. But the night was very different.
When the dinner was begun, he acted like a civilised grown-up. He was quiet and polite. Being seated, he picked up the napkin and place it on his lap. Then, he asked for some bubbles by gently taking his glass as the old had it in their glasses. I poured just a little bit of sparkling wine. He tasted it. When my wife grated fondue cheese, he quietly helped. He was gentle and polite all through the dinner time.
A party with young kids used to end up with a nightmare. But the evening was more engaging. Delighted and cheerful.
And the chocolate fondant that the kid’s mum made and brought was extraordinary.
