SEATTLE (AP) - To Laura King, her three children were acting normal while enjoying dinner at an Italian restaurant in their hometown in Washington state.
But staffers of the restaurant Sogno di Vino in Poulsbo were so impressed at her children's table manners that they thanked her kids and gave the family of five a bowl of ice cream.
It wasn't until King got home that that she noticed a $4 "well-behaved kids" discount on her receipt to cover the dessert. A friend posted a picture of the receipt on the website Reddit, and the story took off.
King's children are 2, 3 and 8 years old.
King says it's been entertaining to see all the attention her story has gotten, and she plans to dine at Sogno di Vino again soon.
