Am I crazy to consider eating at the following places with a 3yr old and 5 month old?

Hi Everyone,

We are going on our first "food" trip to Paris in 2 days and we are going with our 2 girls ages 3 and 5 months (plus my mom and father in law). After reading countless blogs about dining etiquette and dining with kids in Paris, I've made reservations for the following restaurants below.

Lunch:
Da Rosa, Les Papilles, La Regalade, Les Papilles, Aux Tonneus les Halles, Breizh Cafe, Pirouette Les Halles

Dinner:
Le Tastevin, Chez Dumonet,Au Petit Sud Quest, Au Bourguignon, Robert et Louise, L'ange 20

Let me set the context for the kids. My 3 year old is very mature and joins us regularly at fine dining restaurants. She has a very adventurous palate and loves fois gras, caviar, sashimi, and will eat anything that tastes good (including fish cheeks and even the eyes!). My 5 month old..well, she's 5 months old so all she really does is stare, grasp, feed, then sleep. Thus, my choices above none of which are Michelin* and too stuffy but overall, I think they are solid establishments with good reputations.

Am I crazy to think that I can have a gastronomically delightful dinner with the family or I am more likely to get stares of disdain from the waiters and/or patrons who do not welcome kids (even well behaved ones.)

Ps. We don't mind sitting at a back room by the kitchen/toilet, as long as it doesn't smell. :)
