Sugar in your armpits

Mom allowed T to play with flour, sugar and a slice of lemon yesterday in attempt to stop T from annoying her from cooking a great big meal for us.

>>Fast Forward>>

Somehow I am always sleepy the moment T recharges from her afternoon nap. She woke up at 3pm today and I lay my head down for a snooze at 3pm….God willing, even 5 minutes was better than nothing. Miraculously, she allowed me a whole 20 minutes while skittering around our King Sized bed playing tent……..or whatever it was she was playing.

Then I heard that dreaded word……


Silence. I played dead.


I sneaked a peak from the tiny slit at the corner of my eye. She approached me and I quickly acknowledged to myself that the end of my blissful nap albeit short, was soon approaching.

“Mummy? put glasses on” Real bossy, my daughter.

My eyelids tore apart and as I stretched my arms up above my head, something caught her eye. Was it leftover stubble that curiously got the better of her? She put her face closer towards my underarms, then told me seriously….

“Mummy, put shoe-ger ammpitt”

“SUGAR??!!” Why in the world would I want to put sugar in my armpits, Tessa???” I frowned so hard that my face must’ve done some strange contortions. Definitely not good for minimising wrinkles….

“Put shoe-ger ammpitt!” she patted her right hand on her left underarm, still with that authoritative tone.

She looked around the room when she realised I wasn’t getting it.

“Is it pow…..der….that you want me to put onto my armpits?”

She nodded and smiled, knowing her own mistake.

In her confusion between the flour that she played with yesterday and the powder that my moms pats on her body after bathing her, my almost 2 daughter instructs me to put sugar in my armpits.

Very good, T. You’re learning…..*roll eyeballs*

Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.

Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.

She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.

A beautiful life without limits.

Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
