Arik's school council election..







Arik's school council election


Sebelum half term, pulang kerja, Abi menyodorkan secarik kertas.



School council election form.



Arik mengajukan diri sebagai kandidat school council.






Aku asli terlongo. Nggak salah nih?



Anak sulungku cenderung pemalu. Banyak meniru sifat abinya. Walau, akhir tahun reception year, dia dapat Headmistress Special Award, untuk the best confidence apa gitu. Dari sangat pemalu, jadi joining di kelas, kali. Pikir saya.






Ternyata, menurut guru year1 dia, Mrs Greener, Arik tidak pemalu, kok.






Umi Cuma bisa meng’o’.






Aniway, balik ke election.



Saya dan suami ketawa-ketawa di belakang Arik.






School council? Nggak salah nih?



Dalam form, Arik menulis: Reason why you want to be a school council: I want to make school a better place.



Umi nyengir doang dalam hati, bari menambahkan, make it a better place to learn to be good muslim….bla bla bla.






Kita sudah lupa sama form itu. Asumsinya, paling main-main. (Note: Arik belum juga 7 taon!!)






Kemarin, Arik lapor (Atau Abi kali ya), tomorrow Arik has to make a speech.




What? Speech, Arik? What for?


 


 School council.




Asli, Umi takjub. Anak usia 7 tahun disuruh pidato untuk pemilihan school council? Perasaan dulu, pemilihan ketua kelas SD juga nggak dari kelas 1 atau 2 deh.Paling kelas 3 baru ada ketua-ketua-an.






Arik cerita kalau Leon, Skayla, Matthew, dan siapa lagi gitu, said, they would choose Arik.






Hm. Umi mulai was-was.






“So, what are you going to say in your speech?” Semua siap-siap berangkat pagi hari.



“I want to make shool a better place.”



“How?”



“What?” (Mirip ‘whock?’ bunyinya...what geordie gitu lah)



“How are you going to make it better place?”



Wajah tidak suka. “I don’t know!”



Ah well.






Pulang kerja.



“How was the election? Who is the school council? Is it your friend?”



“We don’t know it yet.”



“Why?”



“It had not been counted. Maybe tomorrow.”






Suddenly, I want to put him back inside my womb.






Aren’t they growing up too fast?
