We went out for dinner on Friday night to a local restaurant. Nothing special, just an excuse to get out of the kitchen for the night. As Zephy has learnt how to read we’ve given him a menu. He generally doesn’t bother to look at it but we can sometimes entice him into reading it by saying he can choose what he wants. Most of the time he’s happy for me to throw him some choices but I rarely get past the first one before he says;
Luckily, I have a pretty good idea of what he likes. 😉
On Friday, the menus that the waitress handed us were in Dutch. So after a few minutes trying to work our way through it, unsuccessfully, we asked the waitress for a translation.
Zephy listened attentively to what she had to say before announcing;
“I think I’ll start with the fish platter & then I’ll have the spare ribs…thanks.”
And with that he closed his menu & pushed it to one side.
It was a proud moment to see my child choosing to eat fish of his own free will. 🙂
