hair cut and another award

the hair cut/potong rambut

tulisan tentang rambut sudah dipublish sebelumnya di blog multiply-ku. baru sempet terjemahin ke Inggris, untuk bisa dipasang di sini
the writing about the haircut has been formerly published in my multiply-blog. I just got time to translate it and put it here.


udah seminggu lebih Ar Ir minta potong rambut, kata bu guru sudah panjang. ya... aku juga bisa lihat. tapi emang aku sukanya mereka agak gondrong. jadi aku bilang iya iya aja, berharap mereka lupa. pokoknya kalo belum aku dipanggil atau disurati gurunya, ga akan kupotong. kecuali gondrongnya udah kelewatan.
it's been over a week Ar and Ir asked for a hair cut. their teacher said it's getting long. I could see it, but I'd rather see them a little long haired. so I just said yes and yes but pretend to forget. I planned not to cut the hair until the teacher send me a letter or call me about it.

sabtu kemaren mereka ngingetin lagi untuk potong rambut. kataku, "iya, besok kita ke om anto minta potong ya...". om anto itu langganan bapaknya.
last Saturday they remind me again about the hair cut. I said, "ok, tomorrow we'll go to Om Anto". Om Anto is a barber where Dan usually goes to do his haircut.

hari minggu acaranya malah pergi ke pemancingan, maen seharian. ndilalah pemancingannya lengkap dengan fasilitas permainan, jadi anak-anak betah. ada kolam renang, flying fox, arena outbond, dan yang paling penting ada hot spot! we... ini sih emaknya yang paling suka :P
akhir kata karena kecapekan mereka ga mikirin rambut lagi. yesss!!... pikirku.
But at Sunday we went to a fishing park restaurant, almost all day long. There so many facilities that will keep children stay happy and fun. The fishing pond, swimming pool, flying fox games, outbound games, and most important is hot spot, which is my favorite :D. They were to busy playing and forgot about the hair. Yess!!!... I thought.

senin pagi bangun tidur, Ir nggelendot di pangkukanku sambil bertanya, "bu, ini hari apa?". "senin, makanya ayo adik siap-siap sekolah..."
reaksinya mengejutkan, dia langsung nangis sambil berkata, "aku belum potong rambut..."
waks! inget juga. waduh, udah jam setengah enem pula. akhirnya terpaksa aku mengeluarkan keahlian terpendam...
"yuk, ibu potong rambutnya..."
Monday morning, Ir woke up and asked me, "what day is it today?". I answered, "It's Monday. Come on, you have to prepare for school"
His reation was out of my guess. He cried and said,"I haven't cut my hair..."
Wakks! He remembered, and it was 05.30. So I was forced to pull out my secret ability...
"I'll cut your hair, ok?"

tadinya mereka kelihatan seperti ini
They used to look like this before I did it.







setelah aku potong jadinya begini (Ir ga mau difoto, jadi cuma Ar aja sebagai contoh, lagian potongannya sama kok...)
And this is how they looked like after the cut (Ir refused to pose so I just took Ar's pic. They have the same cut anyway)

front sight

kok ngga kelihatan beda sama sebelumnya ya? ya iyalah, wong bagian depannya emang ga kupotong sama sekali hihihi...
Does it look different to it was before? It shouldn't, I didn't cut a bit the front part, hihihi...



tampak belakang
backsight

ini diprotes embah putrinya yang waktu itu nungguin potongnya, 'lah, kok slawir-slawir gitu?"
jawabku, "maunya dibikin buntut, tapi kalo cuma satu pasti ketahuan gurunya kalo itu buntut. jadi dibikin slawir-slawir aja, buntutnya banyak..."
My Mother who was happening seeing me doing the hair cut protested, "why do you make the bottom scrambled like that?"
I answered,"I wanted to make a tail. But one tail will make their teacher realize it's a tail. So I made some tails there"

mbah putrinya juga protes satu lagi, "kok ngga simetris?"
jawabku, "ini gaya komtemporer jaman sekarang"
padahal... kalo aku harus bikin simetris malah ga bisa, mana kepala mereka udah ga simetris duluan alias peang....
And she had one more protest, "It is not symmetrical"
I answered, "I knew it. It is a contemporrer style". Beside, I wouldn't be able to make a symmetrical cut, especially when their had is not symmetrical as well...

ketika selesai dan berkaca, akhirnya yang punya rambut protes juga, "kok masih panjang?"
jawabku, "engga ah, kan adik lihat sendiri tadi rambutnya yang jatuh banyak..."
mereka melirik ke rontokan rambut yang sengaja belum kusapu buat meyakinkan mereka bahwa mereka udah potong. dan mereka akhirnya pasrah....
When the cutting was finally done, they looked at the mirror and did a protest too, "It's still long"
I answered, "Nah... you see the hairs fall over the floor..." And they look at the cut hair I haven't swept, to convince them they have had the haircut. And they gave up...

so far so good. kelihatan kok kalo rambutnya berkurang, meskipun mungkin belum sesuai harapan bu guru. tapi kayanya bu gurunya juga udah nyerah....:P
So far so good. You can see the hair was cut, although may be not as much as their teacher wished. Well, seemed like they gave up too... :P

Here's my question. How has parenting twins differed from parenting a singleton?

Can't wait to see your answer to the question about how parenting twins differs from parenting one. (I have twins, but no single to compare it to).

Loved the haircuts!

The award is much-deserved! You bring a brightness to the blogosphere.

The hair cuts are good. There must be a requirement at school if the teacher can send home a request? Congrats on the award!
