Jika anak sakit, ibu tak boleh ikut sakit.

Siapa nanti yang merawat si kecil?

Jika anak sehat, ibu tetap tak boleh sakit.

Siapa yang akan menemani si kecil bermain?

If a child gets ill, the mother may not be ill.

Who will take care of the child?

If a child is healthy, the mother still may not be ill.

Who will accompany the child to play then?

***

 

Jadi, ibu tak boleh sakit sama sekali? Aih, ibu bukan wanita super.

Meski kadang ada ibu yang begitu tangguh hingga masih bisa beraktivitas dalam sakitnya, ibu pun manusia biasa. Ada keterbatasan, ada kekurangan.

Ibu hebat, ibu super… sebutan itu hendaknya tak membuat para ibu rendah diri atau khawatir jika tak bisa menjadi ibu idola untuk anaknya. Ibu adalah ibu bagi anaknya, tempat dia bisa pulang.

So, is a mother not allowed to be ill at all? Ouch, a mother is not superwoman.

Although there may be mothers who are so tough that they still do things in their illness, a mother is just human being. There’s limitation, there’s lack.

Wonder mom, super mom… those names shouldn’t make mothers feel worried if they can’t be an idol for their children. Mom is mother for her child, a place to come home.
