Slow Down Little Child.

Written by Megan Wegner-Goeke

Slow down little child, you’re growing way too fast. image

Your days are swirling by too quickly like your favorite swishy dress. 

Slow down little child, you’re growing way fast. 

Soon you’ll be in kindergarten making friends to last.

Slow down little child, you’re growing way to fast. 

That tootless little grin of yours will soon be something of the past.

One day you’ll be too grown up to hold my hand and walk to class.

Slow down little child, you’re growing way too fast. 

Your sweet and spunky little smile will, in my memory, forever last. 

Slow down little child, you’re growing way too fast. 

Your mama isn’t ready for these years to quickly pass.
