Terrible 2's in full effect!!!!!!!!!!

Please.......someone re-assure me that I am NOT the only one on this earth with a child who goes B-A-N-A-N-A-S anytime we go out to eat? Antonio just turned 2 on 1/12 and I swear he's turned into a wild animal and I have no idea what to do! You would think with him being my second I would be a pro by now with handling a kid but I'm at a loss right now.

When Antonio was born Sofia was 2 yrs 3 months old and we though she was a naughty thing when we went out to eat.  Now looking back and comparing the 2 she was an angel.  The most she did was maybe throw a crayon or 2 under the table and whine a little bit but as soon as the food came she was usually fine.  Now that she just turned 4 she is pretty darn good when we go out. Antonio was also very good up until about 2-3 months ago.  Now.....FORGET IT!  He is throwing things, screaming, crying bloody murder.....and flat out refuses to sit in the high chairs they have.  If we try to go out to eat, one of us is usually sitting with Sofia ....while the other is walking the restaurant with Antonio...UGH!

So tonight was no exception.  Alberto was at a motorcyle show in NYC with another guy from his motorcycle club and he called me to meet them for dinner.  So I got all prettied up and got the kids ready and headed to Cuban Petes {one of our faves}. I had my camera ready for some quality family time and some great blogging material {you know you all bring your cameras out to eat too.} and sure enough within 5 minutes I had to take this kid out of the restaurant, and rather than walk around the whole time being miserable and watching everyone else drink that lovely pitcher of Sangria, I decided to leave.  Besides....people around us were getting annoyed and I really felt bad they weren't enoying their meals because of my son.  So, Alberto kept Sofia with him and they stayed with his friend and his wife and son. Now here I sit at home.....again.....with my son who has a huge smile on his face and I wait for them to bring my food home. {and I'm starving BTW}

So do I just have to wait this out or what?
