My older cousin just used this for a video of her baby's first year. I had never heard it before that. I'm 15 and sobbing my eyes out. After finishing freshman year, I quickly realized I only have 3 years until graduation. Then what? I wish I could slow down, and be with my parents longer. All those days of being 5, 6, 7 when all I wanted to do was grow up, that's all over. If I could fall asleep in my mom's arms like I did for the first four years of my life, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I didn't know it then, but at age eight, I had it all. Worry free and ready to take on the world. Now I'm too grown up for everything I used to love, the stress is real, and nothing seems simple. Nothing is familiar and the future is scary. Anyone with me?

If ever I need a good cry, this is the first video I go to. I'm the single mother of one beautiful boy who is my entire life. I love him more than life itself.
Sarah Eby
Sitting here, sobbing. Not even a parent.

My little girl turned 30 today. We celebrated last week when she was in town but that's not the same. Not a day goes by where I don't feel this way. My little boy turns 33 in 2 weeks. When he was born, "Cats In The Cradle" by Harry Chapin was the song that sent me into tears. This captures even more of that bittersweet feeling. I sit here crying knowing that while I have awesome relationships with my kids and they are accomplishing great things in life, I do sometimes wish indeed that they could have "slowed down". I thank you for this incredible song and the unconditional love it portrays.

This makes me cry every time. I'm not kidding.

Everytime I listen to this I want to cry, and sometimes I start crying, and I'm only 14. But my parents and I were in the car and it was my 14th birthday and this song came on the radio and my mom said "this is my song to you" and we sat there listening to it and we all started to tear up and cry. I'm turning 15 next year and I might have a Quinceañera and if I do, I'd want to use this song for the daddy daughter dance, and probably dance with my mom during this song too... But I'm not sure how we'd be able to handle how emotional it would be.

People will hurt you, God will heal you, People will humiliate you, God will magnify you. People will Justify you. Have faith.

Ugh... I'm in 7th grade and this still gets me teary eyed. I remember the days when my cousin and I running around in our little dresses and going to the zoo before pre school. Now she is in high school and we don't talk much... I just want to go back in time when things were easy and stress free. Everyone around me is acting weird and mean and I just want it to be like old times. I want life to slow down
I wish i was dead
I WANT A TINY HUMAN NOW!!

First time I'm seeing this! I'm crying so hard I can't even see through my tears. I never believed it when people would constantly say "they grow so fast, before you realize it, they'll be grown up." Now I believe it.

Here’s to you You were pink or blue And everything I wanted Here’s to you Never sleeping through From midnight till the morning Had to crawl before you walked Before you ran Before I knew it You were trying to free your fingers from my hand ‘Cause you could it on your own now somehow Slow down Won’t you stay here a minute more I know you want to walk through the door But it’s all too fast Let’s make it last a little while I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly I am your biggest fan I hope you know I am But do you think you can somehow Slow down Here’s to you Every missing tooth Every bedtime story Here’s to Barbie cars, light saber wars Sleeping in on Sunday Had to crawl Before you walked Before you ran Before I knew it You were teaching me The only thing love can Hold hands through it When it’s scary, you’ve got me Slow down Won’t you stay here a minute more I know you want to walk through the door But it’s all too fast Let’s make it last a little while I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly I am your biggest fan I hope you know I am But do you think you can somehow Slow down Please don’t roll your eyes at me I know I’m embarrassing But someday you’ll understand You’ll hold a little hand Ask them if they can I am your biggest fan I hope you know I am But do you think you can Somehow Slow down Slow down

Wow. Such a beautiful song! It seriously makes me cry, and I am not an emotional person... I LOVE it! <3333 It really did bring tears to my eyes. This song deserves more views and likes. Especially subscribers! Such a beautiful voice <3 I am seriously crying my head off, and it is SO hard to make me emotional. Basically, I just think of my parents as I do roll my eyes at them as they are a little embarrassing, and I don't know if my dad will survive when my children will grow up, and it is my father's dream for me to have children so he can have grandchildren <3 LOVE YOU SO MUCH MAM+DAD!!
Patricia Withers
I can't even think about this song without having a major meltdown. It's beautiful and heart-wrenching at the same time!
Katelyn Page

Zoie- I remember the day you were born like it just happened and you're already almost in middle school. I really wish that I could go back in time and cherish every sleepless night, every diaper change, every first word and all of the great stuff that comes with being your momma. This is one of the best songs and makes me cry everytime. From today forward I'm going to relax and enjoy watching you grow. I love you so much and you're the best thing that's ever happened in my life.

Im listening to this after a pretty hard day... recently I had a birthday party with a couple people and my mom made a billboard of pictures of me and the other 2 people when we were younger. It brought us all to tears. I've been constantly feeling sad about growing up. And now being in 7th grade... it's worse.

I still cry away every time I watch this or hear the song. It's so beautiful and so true. My boys are 2 and 6 months, and it kills me how quickly they are getting big. So proud of them.
Quimbulis090790
Judging from the comments and personal experience....you have no idea how much you can sob tears of joy and sadness simultaneously until you have kids. What a wonderful joy yet my goodness....stop for five seconds.

I cant stop crying when I watch this because on 21 July 2018 it was the end of the year 6 for me and my amazing teacher played this vidoe with this song from me and my class from year 3 to year 6 and most people in my class started crying!
Rizalee Pilare
I miss my moma and papa. Too early they’ve left us but the memories and love kept embracing me till now and tomorrow. Will this be your song for me too? I could only ask and wonder now. I’ll get no answer but my heart beats and bet for a yes. You love me. You love us. ❤️
Noela
"Please don't roll ur eyes on me, I know I'm embarrassing" this part hit me so hard in my heart😭

Kaitlyn Andrews -illumanessence light
Ms/Mrs. Nordman, I was wondering if I may have permission to use your video on my blog. I write about things that inspire me to be better and that bring me closer to those around me. Also I talk about the light that each one of us give to each other. I understand that there are copy rights, how do i proceed? Thanks!

Treyvontae Alston
It really makes you think of how blessed I am to have my mom in my life. No I wasn't always the best child to her but she still kept putting up with me. She is not perfect and parenting is not easy but I have had such a blessed childhood. And now being 20 years old in college she is still taking care of me. I love my mom and I am thankful for her. And you know what too, even though my dad is not in my life I love him too and I can't wait to see him on earth and if not then in heaven. But I'd love to see him on earth
cathy jumamoy
