As most of my interaction with my kids happen in the car (so sad, right? But what to do, the moment we get home, everyone is busy with their own responsibilities), I have started documenting the Heard in the Car series:
T2: Mommy, do you know before Daddy took out the YOUTUBE from my iPad, I saw the Barbie Murder Home and it has everything inside.
My head was spinning. Did she stumble across a sinister version of Barbie? Damn, thank God I got the hubs to cancel out YOUTUBE in our home.
T1: She means Barbie MOBILE home, Mom….
It’s dangerous having mispronunciations from T2. She calls her Bahasa teacher Puan Juliana….Prawn Juneya, and her Science teacher, Mrs Chandra….Mrs Sangria. T1 says Prawn Juneya’s daughters must surely be called Shrimp and Krill respectively.
In amusement of T2 calling her Science Teacher Mrs Sangria, I repeatedly asked her who her Science teacher was just to hear her pronounce it over and over again. It is hilarious but then she suddenly states, “My Best Science teacher is Mommy!”
Just for the record, I never teach her any science per se but she relates to me telling her certain stories relating back to her science class such as when I ask her during her shower how she can keep herself healthy.
T2: Mommy! Mommy is my best Science Teacher.
T1: Mommy doesn’t know Science.
*Mommy starts frowning*
T2: Of course she does! She’s my best Science teacher.
*Mommy wonders if Tia is trying to bring forward the early receipt of her birthday present for August*
T1: Mommy doesn’t know Science but oh, ya….anyone can be a Science teacher at Reception level so I guess she could be your Science Teacher….
Mommy: Excuse me? You might be interested to know that I studied Science at COLLEGE level, Biology, Physics and Chemistry to be exact!!
T1: Oh, you did? You mean you know Science? I thought only Daddy knew Science.
And just to test me, T1 then said she was learning ‘Forces’ for Science at school and do I know it?
Mommy: Oh, so you know what F=ma is?
T1: *confused look* Oh, noooo….we don’t do formulas for Science. We only do formulas for Math.

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.
