Slow down.

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

slow down mummy, let's pull boots on 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 dirty dishes can wait,
slow down mummy, let's have some fun - bake a cake!
slow down mummy, I know you work a lot,
but sometimes mummy, it's nice when you just stop.

sit with us a minute,
and listen to our day,
spend a cherished moment,
because our childhood won't stay! 

R. Knigh

(para me lembrar,  de cada vez que a Francisca me diz com as mãos cheias de Legos "Mánhe, estás sempre, sempre, sempre ocupada"... : Slow down. Pausa. Parar.)

eu tenho um antónio que me diz "oh mamã tens um tempinho para brincar comigo?"
E eu deprimo, porque na verdade passo o tempo a fazer alguma coisa (que tem que ser feita!).
