As this week begins, I can’t help but think where did the time go? My son will be 9 months on Thursday and it’s hard to think about how I will be going back to work soon. My anxiety is through the roof…how did 9 months just fly by?
When I first started my maternity leave I thought it would be impossible to pass the time all day by myself and just a newborn. I was in for a rude awakening that was unmistakeable. I had no idea how much work a baby was going to be so I guess that’s where the first 3 months went. Seriously, oblivious…
Watching him grow up and learn his firsts has truly been amazing and I am glad I can take a year off to enjoy the time with him. But time is so fleeting. I try to enjoy the firsts but it is a constant reminder of how big he is getting and before I know it he won’t need me as much anymore.
The best lesson I can think of is to just enjoy the present for what it is and cherish the memories you’ve made so far. I try every night to look at the pictures and videos I’ve taken of my son that day. It really helps me laugh at all the good times we had that day (as well as show my hubby since he’s at work for most of the day)!
Is there something you do that helps you cherish these moments?
