How do you transition from exes to friends?

So my boyfriend and I of two years broke up last month (he ended it). After a month of no talking we talked for the first time last Wednesday via text for him to get his stuff. He mentioned that he really hopes we can still be friends but how does one transition into that? We haven't text since and he's supposed to come over next week to pick up his stuff. I mean I know we won't talk everyday anymore but are my expectations too high to think we would've talked again? He's hanging in there from the break up and the holidays are keeping him busy.

I just don't want to look like the desperate ex girlfriend who is trying to get back together so should I wait for him to text first? Should I text him on Christmas?

I feel like we are in that weird "talking but not talking" phase
