Does anybody else have this problem? Every time I sit down, Katie insists on sitting in my lap. Whenever I lay down, she has to lay down with me or on top of me. I have no "personal space" - it all belongs to Katie now.
I get so annoyed with it sometimes, but other times I stop and just appreciate it. I try to remember that it won't be long until she no longer wants to sit on my lap and cuddle with me. I know that from experience with Sarah and Emily.
Our little ones grow up way too fast. They may start out on our laps, but they soon become independent, and eventually they leave our homes. We must cherish the time we have with them while we can. Even if they seem to smother us sometimes!
