MAMAPUMPKIN – A Mother's Monologue
My girls love the kampung because Kong-Kong has such a big garden that they just go crazy in it. They don’t need toys, they don’t need electronics and just take every opportunity to run out into the garden to just run around and do nothing! For that, the Hubs and I do entertain thoughts on moving to Kota Bharu entirely and getting out of polluted KL, getting out of the pretentiousness that comes with KL society and leaving all the money behind. Life would be so much simpler in KB.
Some of the things the girls did over the Chinese New Year holidays in Kota Bharu:-
Getting a ride
Enjoying wide space
Playing play dough when I disallowed them to go out when it was too hot
Paint with Amah’s home grown vegetables – oh, yes!
Drew on concrete with chalk – just look at this princess! She gets her drink held for her whilst she draws. I would have just told her to stuff it!
We had sprint races where I always won. Give chance? Not a chance, what in the world for?!
They got to see real frogs. Big frogs too! Hello? Please kiss me and I might turn into a Prince……
Hop around in their Cheong Sams……
Only 3 weeks before we are back in Kota Bharu again for Cheng Beng. Yay!
Am I busy? You bloody bet.
Once upon a time, I designed buildings and interiors of corporate offices and on the rare occasion, homes. Now, I clean poop and am student of a patience management course. From the drawing board as a London Architect to the realities of Motherhood, I have certainly learned many lessons in humility. And then others.....
To succeed in the corporate world, first succeed with your kid as the happy boss. Seriously.
This blog is about me, Mamapumpkin. A crazy, demented Mom who cares full time, alone, without any help, for an even crazier preschooler AND a baby with a boob addiction problem. *sniff* Someone, please get me a chair.......
I write anything that comes out of my head, mostly without thinking first, which almost always gets me into trouble (according to my husband, also known as the love of my life.......on a good day).
My pet monkeys drive me towards challenge after challenge, 24/7.
Gotta love it.
