Waitress Calms The Toddler So The Mother Could Eat Her Dinner In Peace.

Courtney Pedigo was just setting down to dinner at a restaurant with her father, stepmother and 18-month-old daughter, Harlynn. Then, the toddler started getting fussy. And she kept trying to jump off her mom’s lap, and started a big ruckus.

Courtney was getting a little overwhelmed. Okay… a LOT overwhelmed. It was just too much. So Courtney asked her waitress, Nianni Rudder, if she could get a to-go box so she could take it outside and eat it in her car with Harlynn.

But Courtney was quite taken aback when the waitress said “No.” She said, “She’s not bothering anybody. You’re going to go over there, you’re going to enjoy your dinner with your family, and I’m going to be over there in a second.”

So Courtney went back to her table and within a few minutes, Nianni was back with a bowl of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Then Nianni spoon fed Harlynn the ice cream while Courtney and her family relaxed and enjoyed their dinner.

While talking to Nianni during the dinner, the family was stunned to learn that she was going to school full time to become an anesthesiologist. And her mother had recently died. So much for a young woman to deal with, the family thought, and they were amazed by her patience and treatment of little Harlynn.

Courtney was so appreciative of Nianni, she made a post to Facebook about her. It read: “Girl, you will never truly know how appreciative I am for tonight. I seriously admire you, not only because you took the time to bribe my bratty little human with sweets so I could eat, but because you are so so strong! I know your mom is looking down from Heaven with the BIGGEST smile [because she is] so incredibly proud of the woman you are. Thank you for your amazing service and for being so kind to us all!” 

Tonight my family and I went out to Olive Garden for dinner, and per Harlynn’s usual she did everything but sit in her…
