Does your LO behave any differently when out in public or around others than s/he does when it's just immediate family?

Whenever we are anywhere but home all three of my children seem to be on their very best behavior (not counting the grocery store here lol) Gotta say, I'd much rather have the bickering, screeching, and toy stealing done at home. And all the "wow your kids are so well behaved" comments are pretty sweet.

I ask because this evening we hit up the splash pad with my nephew and sister. The kids were all amazingly getting along, not one kid cried or gotten their feelings hurt. As we were getting ready to leave, a mother asked me if all of the blondes were mine"They are so well behaved, I didn't hear one rude remark or even a whine from any of them when you said it was time to leave."

I invited her over for the bed time routine.

Yes, Gabe is a little angel when i take him out with me. (Except for on the bus and when he doesnt want to go back into his stroller). But when hes at home, hes a little terror sometimes. lol

They are all good when we leave the house. Lately, Emily is a little whiny is were at a store, wanting something but if someone says something to her, she's shy and I have to remind her to answer.
Abby just stares at them..occasionally she'll wave.
When we go for a bike ride, she's our town greeter. EVERYONE we pass, she waves at and says HIII. We always hear people laugh at her, make "she's cute" comments, smile, wave, etc..

If we go to a park, they play, get along and Emily is like a mother hen, making sure Abby is ok, etc..

Both of my kids are complete angels when we are out in public.. A.J does however complain when we shop. It's a guy thing I guess..

When we are at home.. Well, a 3 year old + 1 year old = Crazy sometimes..

Melissa. Breana and Xander can be a terror when they are home with each other sometimes.

Out in public they are OK. Sometimes it depends on Breana's mood and how she has napped she might act up a little.

Mine are pretty much the same as at home. They can get rowdy but know when we say stop to stop.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.
