    I let my nephew sit on my lap (he is 5). My husband straddles me sometimes for some hard core Mack down kissing, hugging, and some dancing from time to time but he doesn't put much of his weight on me at all. I carry a laundry basket on my lap at the grocery store every week. I can fit about $150 worth of groceries in there and sometimes I get a little paranoid about the weight on the basket by the time I get to the check out line. My legs are skinny and frail after 19 years. I need to be more cautious for sure.

    LOl and I thought my 13 lb kitten was burdensome! I can feel myself sink into my cushion more when he's on my lap. He gets jealous when his daintier sister is on my lap and he tries to hop on, I have to discourage him because it's just too much. with the 2 of them. I had to get Ragdolls, sigh.

    Ewww, I hate when this happens, and if someone grabs my thighs and squeezes, I want to punch them. My stepson's girlfriend is forever jumping into my lap, she's 16. I like your idea MarkB, blame the chairs weight capacity! But I'll deal with the spasms and risk broken bones or chair for Granddaughters in my lap. They pay for rides with hugs and kisses.

    Priceless picture, IsMaisin! That's a big boy!

    Stephen, you can't blame the girls for trying...you're just too cute! Maybe you should get a tip jar for lap dances!
