"Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy."

Those Andersonville kids weren't being disruptive in the ice cream shop A Taste of Heaven, courtesy of permissive parents.  Now we learn that they're just "indigo" kids being given appropriate freedoms.

As many may recall, a sign put up by the owners of  A Taste Of Heaven cafe created a firestorm first locally and then nationally, thanks to a NYT story in November:  Rowdy Children in Coffee Shops.

The sign (which I keep meaning to copy and put on all the businesses in my part of Wicker Park just to see everyone freak out*) read:  "Children of all ages have to behave and use their indoor voices when coming to A Taste of Heaven."

Now, we learn -- again from the NYT -- that these screaming kids aren't brats spoiled by permissive parents.  They're "indigo" children:  Are They Here To Save the World?).  According to the Times article, indigo children
(so named for their psychic aura) are exceptionally intelligent,
empathetic, and impatient.

So good to know.

Kimberly over at Number Two Pencil has found an even better sign:  "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy."

*Most of the kids in Wicker Park are under 5.  Weekend brunch at Milk and Honey it's the strollers and the parents that are the problem.
