Did I ever tell you how forgetful and clumsy I am in this pregnancy? I am now 8 months pregnant and things are getting worse by the micro-millisecond. Yesterday, I deleted every single gmail email I had in my inbox. Every single one of them. Whoosh! They were all gone. I hadn’t even finished opening up the unread ones and now, I have no idea what there was or what was deleted. Apologies to those who have emailed me and will never hear from me again. You have now been erased out of my life forever. It was an accident as my many other accidents in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and everywhere else. Really.
Speaking of bathroom accidents…..SHEESH!!! Have you all ever heard of Desitin diaper rash cream?
It’s a really, REALLY good product for babies and children who are pain in the arses with bum problems.
Well, the other day, Tee was feeling an itch down there so we plonked her on the vanity counter with her legs apart (you know, like a Thai tiger show) and applied some lovely smelling BACKSIDE cream. For the next month after that, I would tell myself EVERY SINGLE F*CKING DAY to keep the BACKSIDE cream back into the medicine cupboard because knowing me, on one God forsaken day, I would use the BACKSIDE cream wrongly. But did I keep it back at the medicine cupboard? No, of course not. I am pregnant and I keep forgetting.
The one fine God forsaken day finally arrived.
Now I usually brush my teeth without my glasses every morning and this morning was no different. With a vast array of toothpaste on our vanity counter comprising the many options of children’s Dora, Wiggles, Princess toothpaste and blue and green Sensodyne topped off with Colgate (WHY THE HELL DO WE HAVE SO MANY VARIETIES OF TOOTHPASTE ALL AT ONCE ???), my electric toothbrush rotated something unfamiliar in my mouth. It felt oily……and the more my toothbrush rotated, the oilier my mouth got, till it suddenly felt like I was gargling with a bottle of petrol. Shell oil. It was gross.
I stopped the toothbrush and had a very close look at the foam on my toothbrush which looked very unfamiliar on close scrutiny. Then I picked up the tube I had just squirted and let out the LOUDEST SCREAM!!!
T1 and the Hubs came rushing into the bathroom and when they’d realized what I’d done, they were all cracked up on the floor in tears, kicking their legs in the air!!! Sympathy? They obviously had none.
After countless washes and rinses of my mouth, the oiliness was STILL on my teeth, palette, tongue, inner cheeks, everywhere, and I just couldn’t get the DISGUSTING taste out of my mouth! Forget the toothbrush. The BACKSIDE cream was so deeply embedded into my toothbrush bristles that I threw it out. Hard!
T1 kept asking, “So what does bum-bum cream taste like, Mommy? Hahahaha!!!!” and would burst into evil cackles of laughter. The little monster………the Hubs was no better.
Lesson learnt. Do not procrastinate. Under any circumstance.
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.
