Why You Should Slow Down, Mama!

Sometimes you just need to slow down, Mama! I think that might be one of the biggest challenges of being a mom — SLOWING DOWN, and enjoying the time with our little ones.

There is always so much to do that it is easy to just rush through the day trying to accomplish things, and getting stressed when we don’t accomplish things because we are so busy caring for our baby and/or kids. We need regular reminders to just SLOW DOWN, and realize that we can’t do it ALL, nor should we try!

slow down mom

 

My daughter Ruth wrote this  when little Tori was  four months old, and she realized the need to just slow down.

As I sit here rocking my sweet sleeping baby girl, I am thinking of all the things I need to get done today, such as errands, grocery shopping, menu planning, budget planning, and oh yes – let’s not forget the best one: cleaning up our house which is quite a disaster area. I will feel accomplished if I can get just one or two of these things done today, but you know what? That’s okay.

This morning I am thinking that part of God’s intended treasure in our children, is the fact that they frequently force us to slow down. I am not superwoman (sorry to disappoint). I haven’t figured out how to be a great housekeeper, wife and mom all at the same time. One area or another always needs more than I can give, but my baby girl is happy and adored, and that’s the important thing. Someday my house will be clean again, but these precious times with my baby will soon be gone.

Encouragement for Busy Mom

Wow! This is something that I wish ALL moms could read.  It really puts things into perspective, doesn’t it?

The truth is that those “things” we aren’t getting done WILL wait, but the babies and kids WON’T.  They not only need our time, love, and attention but they also need to have their physical needs met.

I remember the time when I was struggling as a young mom with a baby, and two preschoolers.  In my  post Another Wasted Day,  I share an article written during that time that helped me put things into perspective.

It helped me realize that I needed to slow down, forget about that to-do list, and realize what I was accomplishing daily as I cared for and trained my little ones.

Stop rushing through your days, and just slow down and enjoy your little ones!
