I hate you Timehop!

Well I don't exactly hate Timehop itself, just the realisations it brings. At the moment my '1 Year Ago' posts and photos are filled from a time when I got to spend all my time with Osian, the days when the thought of being away from him in the future brought me to tears. I really didn't know how I was going to leave him in nursery everyday and me go off to uni. Now dropping him off in nursery is just part of our routine for four days a week, I don't particularly like it, but I have got used to it and accepted it. I just can't help but miss the days when I spent so much time with him I couldn't bare the thought of him not being there.

Due to uni semester's timings, I was very lucky to not have to go back until Osian was 11 months old. Although he went to nursery for half a day from when he was 9 months old, so that he would be used going, before having to go nearly full time. I've heard of a few women having to go back after just a few months, or until recently Dads only get a few weeks of time at home with their new baby, so I am glad to have had so long.

I feel like the part of me wanting to be with Osian all the time was a very strong part of me, and that's fading away since accepting our current routine. I feel like I may have lost a little piece of myself. Maybe something else has filled that part? I would like to say the determination to do well has, but I don't feel like it's the case, I've been so demotivated recently.

I should probably delete Timehop, but I cant resist keeping it when I get to see photos of this cute little face.

  3. I don't use timehop, I think I would be the same! I like sitting looking through old photos from time to time but I don't want to be reminded everyday because I wouldn't be able to handle how fast time seems to be moving!x

  4. I'm really glad I don't have timehop! I think I'd find it too much, but you're right the glass is half full and you've got to enjoy a lot of time with him. Thanks for linking up #myfavouritepost

  5. Ahh I don't have timehop but I can imagine how it must be annoying sometimes to be reminded of what things used to be like! Just think how well you are doing being at uni and it'll all be worth it in the end.

  6. I know what you mean - I find timehop just makes me painfully aware of how fast time flies, however I can't resist it either.

  8. When my son started school the whole day I tend to look at old and new photos of him when I miss him so much in certains days. This made me realized too of how much and how fast he is growing up =) #mmwbh

  9. Such a little cutie. It's always hard leaving a child when you have to go to work or uni, but it just makes you appreciate the time you do spend together even more.
