Read him the book "I love you as big as the world". It's the only book he sits still for and smiles the whole way.

...just to be there for them. There is a nice quote out there that says - "children spell LOVE - T-I-M-E"

My DS doesn't like to sit still, so we play chase. Stomping upstairs and skipping down the street, has him in fits of giggles.

Middle of the night
Mummy and bubby
Cuddles and rocking
Until fast asleep
Just he and I
A special bond

point to our body parts: "where are your ears?", "where is your nose?" but the belly button is the only one that goes "beep! beep!"

My favourite way to spend special time with my child is to read together. I love to snuggle up on the couch with her and listen to her read.

Spending time together outside where we touch, look and learn about the world we live in. Makes everything so fresh as an adult too.

I get a precious half-hour with my youngest before her big sister wakes, her current favourite thing is "dickies" (stickers), especially sticking them all over her, and my, arms and legs.

Can't do much yet, but my favourite thing to do to bond with my baby is while driving, cranking the music and having a good sing!  Was the first time I felt the baby kick too biggrin.gif <3

Sitting quietly with my 3 year old son with him on my lap and talking to him about his day: what things he saw, things he did and what things made him happy. A great thing to do especially before bed. Good for winding down

Sitting on the swing with my legs stretched out, him lying upside down on my lap with his head between my knees, swinging! <3
