This house is so quiet without my niece and nephew

you know, normally at the weekend my sister comes over to our parents with her kids. not this weekend. i’m sad. and i miss them. the house feels so empty. and so so quiet. dead. no noise no shouting and screaming and yelling. i hate the silence. yesterday we all were together for the afternoon. my sister stayed for dinner after collecting the kids from school because her partner was getting their car valeted. we had burgers and salad and it was nice. the kids were in high spirits. after dinner mom and me went to the store so i could get money out of the ATM. when my niece asked me where i was going and i said the store and she was like on your own? in this horrified way lol. she’s so cute. then my nephew was asking me do you have games on your phone? to which i said yes but you arent allowed to have it. he was almost crying lol he is so addicted to the phone and tablet. i miss their antics today. i wish they’d come over. they entertain me. they are so adorable. i wont see them tomorrow either and normally my sisters comes for dinner on sundays too. so that means now i wont see them until after i get back from respite. which wont be until next friday. that feels like a long time.

  1. It’s a pity that they aren’t with you as usual at weekends. Sometimes such silence can be a bit depressing so I think I get you. They must be cute kids. So I get that you miss them and yeah, a week feels like a long time, when you miss someone you like for so long, but I’m sure you will have a good time on respite and it will go quickly for you. I feel similarly to you when my sister Zofijka (Sophie) isn’t at home. She’s 10 years younger than me and is a very energetic kid, makes a loot of noise around herself. Me and my family feel very often annoyed by her, her noise, constant chatter and that she craves so much attention, but when she isn’t at home for a longer time, I miss her terribly and even feel a little bit bored. 😀 So yeah, kids seem to be necessary for our well-being.

  2. the sound of children playing is probably one of my most favorite sounds of all. just sitting and listening to them makes me feel drowsy and happy. one of the things you find out when they grow up and move out is that you don’t get to hear them being happy anymore. and i miss hearing that now, but i’m glad for all the times i did get to hear them playing. before you know it, you’ll be listening to them again. enjoy your respite stay!
