I'm the oldest of five kids. When we went out to dinner, people frequently stopped to tell my parents how well-behaved we were. We were very proud of ourselvs.
Hehe, I'm the oldest of five too. We didn't go out to eat very often, but we spent all sorts of time doing other fun things. And not-so-fun things like the grocery store. My Mom appreciated being complimented on our civilized behavior - and it definitely made our day too.
