One of my favorite memories is that of one of my children sitting on my lap. Though I may list book after good book to read, I also want to stress the opportunity for creating a memory with your child (dren). Even though at the time, the days seemed slow, and challenging, I did enjoy it when my children sat on my lap.
I’m not exactly sure what age they were when this ended. What I do know is that time goes quickly and next thing you know, your child outgrows your lap. Sure they could sit next to you which is what we did, but there’s comfort and security for a child that happens when you read to them this way. Your lap is a gift to your child. Give it while they are small enough to enjoy!
