ramadhan 2014, hari #17 : children have the biggest survival rate


jam satu siang lewat tiga puluh menit.
ada janji initial meeting awal tahun di sekolah titan, ... ya; di jam yang sama.
tapi mobil mogok, kelamaan enggak dipakai dan enggak dipanasin jadi ngambek.
rumah pun kosong, enggak bisa titip la luna.

akhirnya,
dengan segenap keberanian melanggar peraturan dan melewati batas kenormalan penjagaan kenyamaan anak yang dibuat sendiri, aku, titan, luna dan aki meluncur ke sekolah titan naik motor.
di hari panas bulan puasa, saat luna genap berusia 1 tahun 1 hari.

sepanjang jalan, aku mentertawakan diri sendiri.
mentertawakan keadaan, tepatnya. padahal kesalnya bukan main. sama dengan level panas matahari siang itu.  tapi saking kesalnya, bawaannya malah jadi pengen ketawa. apalagi melihat titan ketawa-ketawa senang karena naik motor rame-rame.
luna aku ikat dengan wrapper di dada. mukanya tegang dan takut, merungkut di dada sambil melihat-lihat pemandangan. kali pertama dia naik motor. saat pulang, mukanya sudah lebih santai dan terkantuk-kantuk tertiup angin.
pelan-pelan, ayahku memegang kemudi dengan tenang. seperti biasa, ia selalu ada saat aku membutuhkan. he is the only superhero that is real in my life.

ternyata, anak-anak merasa baik-baik saja. 
diantara deretan alphard yang berjejer dan kita datang berempat naik motor. 
seorang anak perempuan yang baru lulus satu hari dari tahap perbayian dan bergaul dengan asap kendaraan; meski berjarak tidak lebih dari 2 kilometer, dan menentang matahari. 
mereka, baik baik saja. 

kadang (baca: seringkali), kita terbatas dengan batas-batas yang kita buat sendiri. 

aku memang harus lebih banyak belajar dari anak-anak. 
dalam keadaan apapun, mereka selalu menemukan celah dan cara untuk bermain. atau menikmati keadaan. thank you for teaching me such a thing, kids. like always.

Life. Just like what I wanted.

Sounds so snobbish ya, saying life is just like what I wanted. But then I realized, semua itu karena emang aku enggak pengen apa-apa. Sekarang juga (ternyata) masih begitu. Dulu emang I treat my life like a blue print. Things to do piling up my list and my aims were to accomplish them. Alhamdulillah, semua tercapai. Tapi kemudian seperti ada titik tolak dalam hidup yang bikin  berhenti ingin terlalu banyak dari hidup. Entah karena merasa udah cukup banyak pencapaian pribadi baik yang bagus atau yang buruk, entah karena pernah kecewa berat sama yang namanya manusia atau karena alasan klise yang digadang-gadang semua manusia: anak.

Sekarang ini, lebih banyak menyambut apa yang datang ke dalam hidup. Termasuk, kembali ke agency lagi. Having thought that I am not some kind of 'Man in a mission' kind of person. I am just an 'I will do my best' of what comes in front of me kind of person.

Gini ceritanya.

Tiga belas bulan yang lalu, saya memutuskan untuk kembali bekerja setel…

love is love. marriage is another thing.

of all the things I ever wondered, ... I think I never wonder whom my kids will be married to. or to picture myself holding grand babies. not just a not yet, I think it is simply too hard to bear and too absurd to think of. but then I promise myself. I promise I will not ever push titan and luna to get married or even if they are married; I will not ask them when to have kids.

many times I wondered that marriage is overrated. and the only reason to get married is not love, but to realise life is too hard to bear when you are all alone. because, however, marriage is a conditional love. hubby once said, marriage is not all fancy and glitter. the lowest it can get is, to keep functioning and it will survive. how both parties can be functional one to another, is another story.

to ariawan, a guy of mine,
the one who always wake me up from my princessy dreams. love you.



Let's cut the crap from the question of Which Mom Are You?

A few years back, social media was being fussy about working mom versus stay at home home. What a nonsense brag! Since I went through both and also had a chance of being a working-from-home mom, it is even more ridiculous for me. Only stupid have a time discussing it and to elaborate on their social media status. Whoever we are, what kind of mom we are, what matters most is how we can make our life productive and progressing. Every single day.

Different mom has different ways of being productive. Some goes to work. Some clean up and cook for the family. Some works at home by selling stuffs online or being a freelancer. Productive means to produce something. Be it money, the foods, you name them all. But the question is, is productive enough? How about having a progressing life? Not as the wife of Mr. Blabla or as the mom of kid Zubidudamdam. But us, as a person. Me, as Wury; a 38 years old woman and how far I have made progress in  my life.

BUT. Let alone of being progressive, ... ar…
