Parenting a newborn is full of blessings, but it doesn’t come without its fair share of challenges. Amidst the colicky screams, diaper changes and constant feedings, it often feels impossible just to steal a moment to get a few bites in yourself.
One waiter at an Olive Garden in Little Rock, Ark., was all too aware of that struggle as he watched one young mother try to feed her baby girl while she was out to eat.
Dallas French tells her story in a heartwarming Facebook post shared by Love What Matters:
I forgot to post this Thursday after all that had happened that day I was really out of it (and probably the lack of sleep this past month) but we went to Olive Garden in little rock after Ellees tests at Children’s hospital and she was starving and I was trying to make a bottle and spilled it all over me and the floor and made another bottle and our waiter (wish I knew his name) watched all that had happened and just had brought our salad and bread sticks and said here let me feed her and you eat.. This melted all of us and this is what we need more of! He fed her I ate my salad and bread sticks and that milk on the floor got cleaned up after we left because he just understood! He didn’t even know what we had went through that day and showed us love and understanding- not irritated that I had made a mess and my baby was screaming… Gosh I wish I woulda got his name because he deserves the recognition!! And it’s the Olive Garden on Rodney parham in little rock AR!
