Inside a parent’s hilarious ‘restaurant’ for their kids during Covid-19

These parents are really making the most of isolation.

While most of us are finding it difficult to find new activities through Coronavirus isolation, a family in Scotland have discovered a hilarious way to pass the time. 

Parents, Callum and Claire-Marie Macauley have created a makeshift fine dining restaurant in their home for sons, Evan, 5 and Lucas, 2 to take their minds off the isolation restrictions. 

In the hilarious and very adorable video, Claire-Marie and Callum give their sons the full experience - greeting them at the door, showing them to their table and reading out the printed menus in front of them. 

"My name's Mummy, and I'll be your waitress for tonight," she says to her giggling children. She then asks her guests if they've been to Mummy and Daddy's restaurant before, when her oldest son says that it's their first time. 

"You're in a for a real treat for tonight as your head chef is Daddy, who will be cooking your food," she explains.

The menu at Mummy and Daddy's restaurant serves cheesy nachos for starters, followed by chicken and cheese quesadillas 

Their 'waitress' takes their drinks order, which is a diet Coke for Evan and a glass of milk for Lucas. 

However, chef Daddy also offers a special apple and blackcurrent reserve wine, from their 2020 edition, to which the boys clink and cheers in their wine glasses. 

After serving dessert and delivering the bill, Claire-Marie rips up the bill saying that dinner is on mummy and daddy tonight.

So far, the adorable video has been shared over 78k times with 30k comments. 

"That is gorgeous," one person wrote. "How beautiful those two boys were. It's all a teachable moment. That restaurant role play taught those boys so much. Well done parents."

"Love it," another said. "Staying home gives us so many opportunities to engage with our family, be creative and make memories. That’s what your kids will remember."
