My mum brought this poem to my attention and I thought it was fabulous.  Too many women lead such busy lives that they forget about the most important things.

SLOW DOWN MUMMY

Slow down mummy, there is no need to rush,
slow down mummy, what is all the fuss?
Slow down mummy, make yourself a cup tea.
Slow down mummy, come and spend some…  time with me.

Slow down mummy, let’s put our boots on and go out for a walk,
lets kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
Slow down mummy, you look ever so tired,
come sit and snuggle under the duvet and rest with me a while.

Slow down mummy, those dirty dishes can wait,
slow down mummy, let’s have some fun, let’s bake a cake!
Slow down mummy I know you work a lot,
but sometimes mummy, its nice when you just stop.

Sit with us a minute and listen to our day, spend a cherished moment,
because our childhood is not here to stay!
