Being creative during the School Holidays WITHOUT TV

Our long time reliable baby sitter finally left us – the white DVD player filled with scratch marks, finger prints and stickers; and she couldn’t have left at a worst time, just when the school holidays had begun! OUCH!!!

So not only have we not had any BARNEY for 2 weeks, the ASTRO has also gone wonky forcing me to cancel ASTRO.

What does that leave the kids with?

Time to give Mommy a blinking headache, that’s what.

In ONE DAY, this is what happens at home……


Honestly, would you get a heart attack if you saw your older kid of 25 kilos sitting on your fragile toddler of barely 10 kilos???

Really now, was I over-reacting???


Throwing balls all over the floor…..and making a mess of the home with everything else. Let’s just be free and express ourselves freely!!!


Then our British Nanny arrived and got them under control with some art work whilst she picked the toys up. She did try getting them to help and they did help but it took so long.

Later, she joined them and they had a smashing time being creative……

And when we told T2 that we had to pack up the art work as it was time to nap, T2 said she was running away from home, except she headed into the kitchen instead of the front door……

Now, I clearly remember myself running away from home before but I don’t remember it being so early, nor did I pack a bag. Clearly, it must be in the genes.

So can you imagine? If it isn’t a day that I take the kids out for some holiday fun time, it’s them at home driving me absolutely bananas. What about you? How have your holidays been?


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.
