It can be tough being a parent.
Some days, you’re on top of everything and feel like a maternal Superwoman. On others, it seems that growing six extra hands still wouldn’t help you to get all your tasks done.
Dallas French was having one of those days when she stopped at a restaurant in the US after bringing baby Ellee to the hospital for tests.
After prepping a bottle for Ellee, a flustered Dallas accidentally spilled the milk all over herself and the floor – adding additional stress to an already tough day.
She then made another bottle for Ellee and began to feed the child, while her own food waited on the table.
A kindhearted waiter witnessed the situation and decided to lend a hand, offering to feed the baby while Dallas enjoyed her meal.
“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!” she said in a post on Facebook.
The owners of the restaurant became aware of the encounter through social media and have since promised that the waiter in question will be rewarded for his generous behaviour.
We love hearing stories like these, as the smallest gesture can mean so much when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
