Empty Nest Syndrome
Not so long ago, my kids used to ask me to play with them. Setting up the cake studio has taken a lot of time from them, or when we're together, I feel too tired to do much. Or I'm trying to keep up with work at home. Tonight, they've decided to follow my sis-in-law home for a sleepover so they can play with their cousins. I'm really missing them now. All alone at home and not quite knowing what to do with myself! Horrors!
Lately, I've felt we haven't had much quality family time together. There isn't anything other than watch movies at home together. That is such a passive past time though. I've offered to take kids to the park in the mornings but they're not really interested anymore. Oh dear oh dear... I really hope I won't be singing to myself "Slipping Through My Fingers" by Abba with a tinge of regret when my kids are all grown up.
