Yesterday, Nathan was invited to a playdate and dinner at a friend's house. This is the first time he has eaten at someone else's home without the rest of the family. I was actually somewhat nervous about it. Nathan can get upset in unfamiliar situations. Would he become flustered by a different dinner routine? Would he be okay with new food?
It turns out everything went fine. He ate his food and (according to the mom) minded his manners.
One more door opened for social interactions.
