Mommy, Slow Down | Higdons' Happy Home

Last Mother’s Day, Nichole Nordeman’s “Slow Down” brought tears to the eyes of mothers everywhere—including this mama. I’m not one to try and wish my child to stay little forever, but watching other children passing through stages my daughter will never again see made me tear up a little. Just a little.

But after staying home with my sick daughter, while we cuddled and watched Disney movies I started hearing the words a little bit differently. We may wish our children could slow down, but as parents, maybe we should be taking some of our own advice.

I didn’t realize how busy I’d been until I sat down and just enjoyed being with my daughter. The next day when she jumped out of bed and ran to the recliner I giggled out loud, but I cried a little inside. We were back to the hustle and bustle of getting ready for work and for daycare.

That is definitely one of my weaknesses. I have so many things to get done and so little time to do it. I forget that sometimes I just need to slow down and enjoy being a mom.

So next time you wish your child could just stay little, slow down and take some time to just enjoy where they are right now.
