Five out of six kids are on vacation, and I feel uncomfortable in my 50-year-old tripe | family

verticalRoel Abraham is 50 years old but he doesn’t want to know, he has six children and only one wife. Trabant leads, stumbles through life and shares his experiences as the father of a large family here.

Empty nest syndrome. Why English terms should always be used is a mystery to me. As far as I’m concerned, we take an example from our former compatriots, the Flemish, who at least think of the Dutch expression or phrase auf der Stelle if it didn’t exist at all. The loanwords are “40-” 45. But hey, empty nest syndrome is also allowed! I’ve always been a little cynical about it, that whining.

Kids will one day live on their own, and as a putative father, you have at least 18 years to prepare for it, so pardon your pathetic whining when your offspring finally manage to find a home of their own. Children grow up, live alone, reproduce or not, and then die. Been completed. Just something to be happy about it seems to me, and to be glad they found a home! Something that even a single mother with triplets and urgency would normally not be able to do.

Parents have had nothing to collapse into the milk of general human feelings throughout the ages because we are hard and numb stones

There is no understanding here of the old berries seeing their birds fly and then languish in misery, never cook again as this is inconvenient on their own and three months later are found worms feeding them instead of their children. So I was very happy that five of my relatives were away this week with the Youth Association, to a very far away village. How do I enjoy peace. No more “what do we eat?” The whole day. or “Is there juice left?” No inconveniences because I have to constantly encourage them to do their tasks, well, I’ll do it myself now, at least it happened, quickly and professionally too.

Fortunately, I still have my beautiful baby boy, but one baby is not a baby, as the Egyptians already taught us

After all, no one can empty trash cans better than me. Or clean the toilet. I was finally able to read a book without being disturbed and sleep well without being bothered by the noise of the night. Who takes a shower in the middle of the night? On the first day I walked around with an uneasy feeling in my 50-year-old’s rumen. Will they be okay? Five pieces of children disappeared. Only one left. Emptiness, terrible silence. When will they come back? Oh yeah, it takes a whole week. Upstairs I heard a door rumble. Let me do some washing even though there was almost nothing. Why does this door clatter? He doesn’t usually do that, does he? The older ones were usually on the phone until late at night on his computer, and now the quiet was frightening. Worry! I grabbed my hand, and walked past our terraced house. Fortunately, I still have my beautiful baby boy, but one baby is not a baby, as the Egyptians taught us.

Did you know that 35 percent of women experience empty nest syndrome when their children run away? Perhaps you also have the Internet, which is very useful, and then you can find, among other things, that “women can feel torn, as if their hearts have been ripped out of their bodies.” Of course men are not mentioned again, we have had nothing to crumble in the milk of general human sentiment for centuries because we are hard, insensitive stones, and we can hardly remember the names of their children. Fortunately, they will be back home in a few days. Can I start preparing for the eldest daughter’s departure abroad? With its one-way flight. “The day after tomorrow we will see our people again, Mom! Our brothers and sisters!” The little boy is also affected. Empty nest syndrome. I kinda know what it is now.
