Private Picnic with Adam

This story actually begin with a small accident with my car, that I had when I got home from Jakarta last week. A small rock hit the front glass of the car and it cracked. Then the insurance guy that should check it only available on Saturday, which is happen to be my first free Saturday from teaching to Jakarta after a looooong time.....so that I can gladly spent time at home. (Yes, gladly.... I love spending time at home doing lots of unnecessary but fulfilling things, you know..) So, back to the main story...

I could easily hop on my husband's car and go with him to the office, of course.
But, it was Saturday, for God's sake.
And I had a 4 year's old that suddenly had a twinkling eyes when I said, " Baby, how about if mommy staying home today to play with you?"

He showed me his best potential smile.

"You don't have to go to Jakarta today?"
"Nop."
"And you are not going to office?"
"Nop. I can do it on Monday, anyway."

His smile was official. He is thrilled.

So, the next thing is to arrange some private time that I can spend alone with him. Without nanny. Without anybody. Just us.
We go picnic, then.
To our near home favorite park.
He had sandwiches for breakfast when I had yellow rice.
We bring along our favorite drink, as usual, ice coffee.Ahhhhh....
Drawing book, crayon, water, camera and some snack are other essential things that we tag along in our bike's basket.

Boy...

Two hours of drawing, giggling, chatting, guessing at the cloud's shape, collecting some seed, playing swing and slide.

"Mom, what's is picnic?"
"Picnic is this, honey. We take food and drinks and other favorite things, and go outside..and having fun."
"I love picnic, mom."
"Me too, hon. You can write PICNIC at our picture."
"OK."
"Are you having a good time?"
"Yes, mom."
"Me too, baby."

And I certainly am.
Thank God.
