My niece told me all summer how bored she was sitting around the house but she got out quite a lot, just not with me. It happens. In all honesty, it's something her grandmother will have to move past. Remind her of all the friends your daughter has and all the places she goes. I'm sure with four kids you're quite busy, but a dull moment even then is allowed.
The time i spent with my niece is something I will miss though. School starts tomorrow and I'll be home alone. I tried to pretend I'd be happy but I'm gonna miss her so much. We fought at times, and other times we were splendid together. I'm not going to her first day of school, but I'm gonna try and do something special for her birthday next week.
I'm sorry to put this here and get all emotional but I feel like the worst uncle in the world for not doing more with her when she asked. Towards the end she said she hated me and was always calling me mean for repremanding her. She was right to some extent because she never would have said those things if I wasn't so lousy. It's moments like this that you would want to give everything for a child's happiness. Her summer is over and I feel plain stupid.
