Jul 23, 2011 Breakfast My wife and I have always enjoyed going out for breakfast. We tend to be morning people. Or should I say, my wife becomes a morning person once she has her first cup of coffee. When we first met in college, we used to go play basketball on the weekends and then head to Meeting Street Café, a popular breakfast place in Providence RI. As we made our journey through life we found our favorite local spots for breakfast and brunch in Boston, New York, and now in New Hampshire. Since moving to NH, we often indulge on weekend breakfasts at Country View in Greenland and Linda’s Breakfast Place in Seabrook. This morning was just one of those perfect mornings to head to Linda’s for a sumptuous breakfast. As I looked around the popular local hot spot, I noticed all the babies in the restaurant. I am excited at the prospect of sharing a family breakfast out with my son, but I noticed some babies are better behaved than others. It was interesting to observe how some babies appeared to be self sufficient and independent sitting in their high chair feeding themselves scrambled eggs and pancakes. Others seemed to be a handful, running around the restaurant with maple syrup dripping down their face. I wondered if these behaviors were a product of “nurture vs. nature”. Will we be able to teach our child restaurant manners or will he be a wild child? I guess only time will tell.
