I’m trying to remember to capture some every day moments in our albums. It’s easy to focus on the highlights (holidays, vacations) and forget to document the here & now. One of those routine things is after school pick up.

I pick up both kids most weekdays. It’s simple, it’s routine, but also something that will change over time. Even how they sit will soon change. It won’t be long before she’s forward facing. She’s currently 2-1/2 years old and we’re keeping her car seat rear facing as long as possible. Thankfully, she doesn’t know any different and isn’t fighting it.
And, while he is now technically old enough, he’s not quite tall enough to get out of the booster seat in my car. The seatbelt doesn’t quite hit him over the shoulder where it should. So, for now, we’re continuing to use his highback booster. (Don’t stress his seatbelt placement. I snapped this selfie while parked and he was reaching over to adjust the mirror.)
What does your after school pick up or evening routine look like?
