Family Dinner

About a year ago, I wrote this blog entry. I vowed that we would not go to a restaurant as a family until a) he learned social skills or b) turned 16. I was prepared to wait for whichever came first. The boy just doesn't sit still and we often need a full support system to keep him occupied. However, I relented and several times this past year, we have eaten out. Granted, it was only IKEA and some days were better than others. Even so, we felt pretty confident as we opened the door to Torero's last night that he was going to at least sit with us even if we had to eat at mach speed. I mean, he cannot possibly act like a beast at a restaurant the rest of his life, right?


Our big boy was a superstar!
Apparently, we will not have to wait until he turns 16.
Phew.
