There will always be time to wash the dishes, to clean the tables, to write that document. But, Lil Pumpkin will not stay a child forever, and every precious moment growing up with her matters.
What do I want her to remember me by? My back turned towards her and facing the computer.. or by her side playing with her dollhouse? The answer is pretty obvious.
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, lets put our boots on and go out for a walk,
Let's 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 dirt dishes can wait,
Slow down mummy, lets 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,
& listen to our day,
Spend a cherished moment,
Because our childhood is not here to stay!
