Grab a tissue for the song that has millions of moms in tears

Nicole Nordeman - published on 09/29/16

“Slow Down”

Even in the midst of all the sleep depravity and constant cleaning up of unspeakable messes, the most common thing I hear from mothers of young children is, It’s going too fast. They’re growing up too quickly.

Christian artist Nicole Nordeman perfectly captured the sentiment in a tearjerker of a song, along with a video that will also tug at your heartstrings.

“I feel like I spend my life trying to slow time,” said Nordeman when she shared the video. “Trying to celebrate the growth and the milestones of my children, and then secretly day dreaming about building a time machine in my garage, so I can return to rocking my babies at midnight. If you’ve ever looked at your child running across a field, or striding across a graduation stage, or walking down the middle aisle of a church clutching a bouquet, you’ll know why this song is special to me.”

So, moms, get your tissues ready and prepare yourself for all the feels.
