First bedtime without us

Last night Andy and I both went to our bible study meeting and Elesa stayed with Kevin and put him to bed. That was Kevin’s first night since being with us that he went to bed without either of us. He was surprisingly clingy yesterday afternoon so we were concerned that he’d take awhile to calm down when we left but Elesa reported that he cried for about 2 minutes and then was fine. He wasn’t happy-go-lucky for awhile, but he eventually was and the whole bedtime routine went smoothly. Elesa suggested that it was so smooth that next time we can just leave him alone and call at specified intervals to tell him when it’s time to brush his teeth, get dressed, read, and lay down. He'll take care of everything else himself.
