In Pojok Kris

Tidak terasa hari libur hampir berakhir dan hari sekolah sudah di depan mata. Ketika melihat posting-an di Facebook Page Kementrian Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan RI, saya jadi ingat waktu pertama kali mengantar anak kami ke sekolah untuk yang pertama kali.

Waktu itu usianya baru 3 tahun saat pertama masuk playgroup. Sehari sebelum sekolah, dia menata baju, tas, dan sepatu yang akan dipakai keesokan harinya. Sementara kami, orang tuanya, melihat dengan perasaan yang bercampur aduk : antara senang dan terharu, dan takjub betapa cepat sekali waktu berlalu. Rasanya baru kemarin melihatnya belajar jalan, sekarang sudah melihat tangan kecil itu merapikan tas bawaannya untuk ke sekolah. Kami takut, jangan-jangan besok sudah melepasnya wisuda.

Suami sudah jauh hari mempersiapkan diri dengan mengambil cuti besok supaya kami bisa mengantar ke sekolah untuk yang pertama kali. Sementara karena jam kerja saya lebih bebas, saya sudah memastikan tidak ada janji dan tidak mau diganggu setidaknya sampai hari pertama sekolah berakhir. Kami juga mendengarkan cerita dari yang “sudah berpengalaman” soal hari pertama sekolah ini.

Neneknya sudah berpesan untuk saya siap-siap masuk di ruang kelasnya kalau-kalau dia rewel. Karena menurutnya, dulu saya sempat harus ditemani di hari pertama sekolah karena selalu merebut mainan teman-teman lainnya dan membuat yang lain menangis. Saya tidak terlalu kuatir akan hal itu karena dia sudah terbiasa berbagi dengan anak-anak di lingkungan kami tinggal. Pokoknya kami berdua sudah mempersiapkan diri dan berbagai skenario yang harus kami hadapi.

Besoknya kami bangun lebih awal, termasuk si kecil. Rupanya dia bangun sendiri karena bersemangat masuk sekolah. Mandi dengan cepat dan bahkan bernyanyi gembira karena tidak sabar masuk sekolah.

Setibanya di sekolah, seperti yang sudah saya bayangkan, ada orang tua yang sedang merayu anaknya untuk masuk sendiri ke kelasnya, ada yang terpaksa ikut masuk ke kelas, ada anak yang sedang menangis, dan ada beberapa yang melambai-lambai dari luar ruang kelas. Heboh. Saya kembali deg-degan.
Setibanya di depan kelas sebelum masuk, si kecil memeluk kami dan berkata, “Jangan lupa jemput ya. Dadaa..”
Apaa??
“Papa Mama nggak usah masuk. Malu. Masak sudah besar masih ditunggu.”
“Mama tunggu di luar ya,” kata saya memastikan.
“Nggak usah, Ma. Pulang saja. Pokoknya jangan lupa jemput,” katanya sambil membuat gerakan tangan yang mengisyaratkan supaya kami pergi dan masuk ke kelas digandeng oleh guru kelasnya yang tersenyum lebar.

Kami berdua tertawa. Bingung malah. Skenario ini tidak terpikir sama sekali oleh kami berdua. Saya mencoba mengintip. Ternyata anak kami sudah asik bermain. Dan memang akhirnya kami menunggu di kantin sekolah sampai jam pelajaran berakhir, mengobrol dengan orang tua lain yang ternyata bernasib sama dengan kami.

Pulangnya dia sibuk bercerita tentang teman-teman barunya dan dengan bangga bilang bahwa sekarang dia resmi sudah besar karena sudah sekolah. Selain itu, ini bagian pentingnya, dia bilang bahwa sekolah teryata menyenangkan dan dia mau terus bersekolah.

Pengalaman hari pertama sekolah ini menjadi kenangan yang tak terlupakan bagi kami. Dan karena hari pertama yang menyenangkan itu, sampai hari ini anak kami selalu bersemangat pergi ke sekolah. Hal ini terjadi karena guru-guru di kelasnya sudah siap dan dengan sangat sabar menghadapi anak-anak kecil ini melewati momen penting yang akan dikenang selamanya.

Selamat mempersiapkan hari pertama sekolah!

Does not feel the holiday is almost over and the school day is in sight. When looking at the post late in the Facebook Page of Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, so I remember when I first drove our son to school for the first time.

At that time he was only 3 years old when the first sign playgroup. The day before school, she had arranged clothes, bags, and shoes that will be used the next day. While we, the parents, seeing the feelings were mixed: between happy and thrilled and amazed how quickly time passes. It seems like only yesterday saw him learning to walk, now see little hand smoothed her luggage bag for school. We are afraid, lest tomorrow already take it off graduation.

Husband already far today preparing to take leave tomorrow so that we can take to school for the first time. While because my working hours more free, I’ve made sure there are no appointments and do not want to be disturbed at least until the first day of school ended. We also listened to the story of the “already experienced” about the first day of this school.

My grandmother was told to get ready to enter in the classroom in case he is fussy. Because according to him, first I had to be accompanied on the first day of school for always grabbing more friends and make others cry. I’m not too worried about it because he is used to share with the children in our neighborhood live. Anyway, the two of us was prepared and the various scenarios that we have to face.

The next day we got up early, including a child. Apparently he woke himself as eager to go to school. A quick shower and even sang happy because not wait to go to school.

On arrival at the school, as I imagine, there are parents who were seducing her son’s own admission to his class, were forced to go into the classroom, there is a crying child, and there are some waving from outside the classroom. Rookery. I came back excited.
Arriving in front of the class prior to admission, the child hugged us and said, “Do not forget to pick . Byee…”
What ??

“Father and Mother  do not have to go in. Shame. Cook has great still awaited.”
“Mother wait outside yes,” I said sure.
“No thanks, Ma. Go home. Just do not forget to pick,” he said as he made a hand gesture that suggests that we go and get into the classroom towed by a class teacher who smiled broadly.

We both laughed. Confused instead. This scenario does not occur at all by us. I tried to peek. It turned out that our son was cool to play. And indeed we ended up waiting in the school cafeteria until class ends, chatting with other parents who turned out the same boat with us.

We went home with him busy telling about his new friends and is proud to say that now he officially was great because it was the school. In addition, the importance of this section, he said that the school teryata fun and he wants to stay in school.

First day of school experience becomes memorable for us. And since the first day of fun, until this day our children are always eager to go to school. This happens because the teachers in class was ready and very patient with small children this past pivotal moment that will be remembered forever.

Congratulations prepare for the first day of school!
