My mother arrived today for a 3 week visit. As usual, she zoomed in on her little grandson. I don't mind, she brought me lots of goodies (and essentials).
I wonder what's going through Aaron's little mind. He is extremely close to my parents and has spent almost as much time with them as he has with Richard. Did he wonder where she has been all this time? Do little kids know how to 'miss'?
Last week, while I was on a video call with my mother, Aaron kept walking to the back of my desk trying to see if she was there. He wanted her to pick him up. In the end he climbed on my lap and tried to launch himself at my laptop to get near her. It was funny yet sad at the same time. He really did get quite upset when he couldn't get to her.
Look at them now!
So what sort of things would I 'order' from somebody outside Indonesia? Take a look at this:
She brought the ingredients to make Tau Fu Fah (Soyabean pudding?), some chinese dried meat (something like beef jerkeys), tasty Coon cheese, CHOCOLATES, quinoa and peanuts. We can get peanuts here but she just brought some leftover from her own house.
