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.

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

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. :)
