Need some advice!

It's 1:18 and I'm already exhausted!

A new Bible study at church started this morning, and so B and I went. We arrived half an hour late - I hate being late, but I was really sick this morning, so I had no choice. Remember how much B used to hate going to the nursery? Not so much anymore. He still cries when I leave him but his teacher says it's very short lived. When I went to get him he was playing and running. He looked up at me like "Um, I'm not done. You go byebye." It's a little bittersweet!

After that, I headed to Mimi's to meet my good friend Julie and her adorable son for lunch.
This is where the trouble begins. B was still semi ticked off that I pulled him out of the nursery. At least, that's what I think. Anyway, about halfway through lunch he started the second biggest tantrum of his existence (ironically, the biggest one also took place at Mimi's while at lunch with my friend Sarah). I'm convinced that everyone was staring and silently begging me to make him be quiet.

Here's the thing. He's 15 1/2 months old. How do you publicly discipline a toddler of this age? Moms, do you have any tips? I know this is probably a stage but what is your advice?

Edited to add: Does anyone do Time Out at this age? If so, how does it work for you? I know I can't exactly do this in a restaurant, but if we can start good habits here at home maybe that will help?
