Chaos, meet comfort

As Evan begins his second week in preschool, I still find myself absolutely bewildered that my little boy is old enough to be going to school.
I’m so proud of the way Evan has handled the transition into preschool—his behavior shows me that he is really just ready for this big step. That’s not to say, however, that we haven’t experienced some changes and challenges!

While Evan truly seems to be loving school, he’s also been a bit nervous before class. We’ve also noticed a little more fatigue by evening time—the new routine would be enough to exhaust anyone and I know I’ve been more tired than usual, too.
With our days being so much more rushed, our entire family is ready to unwind in the evenings—especially Evan.
I like to make sure Evan has about 30 minutes of special quiet time in the evenings to help him relax and reflect on his day. It’s so important to find the soft side in life, especially in the face of change.
I make Evan a little nest on the sofa with his favorite soft blanket and we either read a book together or he enjoys a little time with a game on the iPad.
Even on our most chaotic days, taking the time to curl up in a soft blanket and enjoy a little quiet time really makes Evan’s bedtime special and I love that!
