I have recently been appointed as one of the Mommy Bloggers for Fab Lovender Moments and as part of this initiative, I am to start a topic for discussion each week for a few weeks. The topics will all revolve around Parenting and Kids, specifically activities for kids. We want your views, your ideas, your experiences and your sharing. You do this in the form of comments on the facebook Fab Lovender Page. In return, you stand a very good chance in winning a trip to Australia for a family of FOUR!!! To visit a real lavender field amongst other things……..
Other prizes include Lavender Spa Vouchers and Weekly Free Fab Lavender Laundry Detergent!
Now I’m not one for prizes and I’ve hardly ever participated in any competitions unless it was at school or something forced out of me. However, I saw the true potential of winning in this and hence I am urging you to join me with discussions on the Fab Lovender Page under my Blog Topics so that you can increase your chances in winning too. Each comment will earn you extra points. The contest runs for 2 months.
So the first topic is this:
Kids Should Be Kids
Kids these days are exposed to technology too much (iPhones, iPads, DVDs, Wii games, Nintendo DS etc) and although I realise that technology already is a part of the lives they are born into, I can’t help feeling that they still need to be the kids of our time. Kids need to play lots at playgrounds, they need to tumble around the park, run in open spaces, climb trees, splash around in streams and explore the outdoors! If any parent gets stuck with ideas on where to go for such activities, I will be most happy to help but more often than not, parents dumping their kids with technology gadgets don’t want to make the effort to go out. What say you? Are you up to going that extra mile for your own children?
I’m not saying don’t give the iPad to your kids. I’m saying everything in moderation. So how does one balance this “modern versus traditional activities for kids” subject? Please share!
Put on your thinking caps and let’s DISCUSS on the Fab Lovender Page – Link it (for points), Share it (for points) and Comment (for more points!). Come on guys, let’s see which one of you is going to win this thing!**************************************************************************
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.
