Really! At least on Saturday. For this one particular meal…
So, on Saturday we decided on a whim to go out for a pizza lunch. Around the corner we went, including a very excited Phoebe and a very sleepy Estelle–both quite good conditions for restaurant dining.
To our surprise (and delight) Phoebe sat right down in the high chair and immediately put her napkin in her lap with no prompting at all.
When the waiter brought the menus, all we heard was a squeal, “Books!” Followed by one of her newest and most used phrases, “I read, I read.”
And bread while we waited for the pizza.
It was such a successful (and delicious) outing that a shoulder ride home seemed like the perfect way to celebrate.
