You know your toddler has reached a developmental milestone

…..when she allows you to have a¬†crap all by yourself.

For the last 2 and a half years of her life, Tee never liked being alone. What more, she’d rather be stuck in a cubicle of tarantulas with such a stench than be alone, most especially in a thunderstorm. She isn’t called my shadow for nothing.

Today there was a thunderstorm. We were in the living room doing whatever we do and suddenly, I felt the urge. I told her that I had to go and asked if she’d like to follow me or wait out here.

“No, no…Mummy, you can’t go!! I’m scared of the thunder!”

“Whaddya mean I can’t go? I can’t control these things! You decide. Are you in or out?”

Like a little girl who’d blossomed overnight¬†into a young lady, she announced, “I’ll wait outside in the bedroom. I will bring my toy.”

So she follows me into the bedroom with her ABC machine and tells me rather politely that she will wait for me on my bed. Really? Nodding rather self-assuredly. Yes, really.

“I don’t want to smell stinky poo!” she exclaimed with her little fingers wriggling in front of her nose.

Oh my God!

This is my passport to freedom! I’ve got to start having daily craps now. Hey, maybe twice or thrice daily! I’d bring my laptop, ipod, junk food, nail polish and just hang out!

Now if only my bathroom was that of the Peninsula Hong Kong penthouse gazing the views of the ocean.

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.

  1. That has to be the funniest thing I’ve heard all day! LOL! I wouldn’t want to be in there either, but I face the same problem as well – between my 23 month old and my 2 cats I can’t crap alone either!

    Enjoy your “crap-py” time alone and thank you for that wonderful laugh!
