    Eating In A Restaurant!

    I like to eat meals with my family.  Sometimes we eat at home and sometimes we eat at a restaurant. 

    Mommy or Daddy will tell me where we will eat.

    When we get to the restaurant, we may have to wait for a table.  

    While we are waiting, I can talk to Mommy and Daddy or I can bring some books to read.

    I can use a quiet voice and listen to Mommy and Daddy.

    When it is time to sit down, we will walk to our table.  I can sit down and look at the menu.

    Mommy and Daddy will help me decide what to eat.  They will help me order my food from the server.  I can use words to tell the server what I want!

    After we order our food, we may have to wait some more.  Mommy and Daddy can bring some books or toys for me to play with.  I can also draw or color.  

    When our food is ready to eat, the server will bring it to our table.  I can eat my food!

    When I am done eating, I can wait for Mommy and Daddy to finish.  I can use a quiet voice.  I will stay in my seat.

    When Mommy and Daddy are done, we can pay for our food and leave.

    Eating in a restaurant is fun!
