Best evening evah!Yesterday my MIL called to say she was stopping by to pick up & drop off stuff. She and Steve arrived at the same time and she offered to take us out to dinner. We went to Pudd'ns favorite pizza place to sit on the patio and eat. It was a really nice and relaxing time. We haven't gone out to eat with Steve's mom in years. Pudd'n hates restaurants so it was a treat we had to give up as a big family outing. Before the autism took over, we'd go out at least once a month with the in laws.
The weather was perfect, a nice fall afternoon. Pudd'n happily watched his DVD player while we started on our salads. Dinner came and he gobbled up his pizza & spaghetti. It was so surreal to sit there nicely and have a conversation. All of us left very full, happy and relaxed. Mom had to take off and I had to color my hair.
I'm hoping we can do that again soon. It is so nice that we've finally found a place that Pudd'n will tolerate sitting in.
