Somewhere amidst the events, gifts and guests, take time to slow it all down. Maybe you sit down on the couch with your student and look through their baby photo albums. Or you go for a dog walk, or a drive with the car windows down. (Just a short one — they have places to go and people to see!) Let them drive, so you can steal glances at them. Talk a bit about nothing…and everything.
