A few days ago, T1 excitedly came home talking about her day at school boasting that she fooled so many people on April Fool’s Day. At every corner she turned, she’d be pulling a prank on someone and she said that all the girls in her class did the same on everyone else. The boys however were too dumb to think up of pranks. Hmm. Or perhaps they were too lazy to think. Or perhaps they just couldn’t give a rat’s arse! In any case, is it something to be so proud of to fool another?
In my time, exactly when I was 10, I was at a Private School (Sri Inai) in Ulu Kelang and I remember vividly how we schemed to put a bucket of water above the classroom door attached to a string to be pulled when the teacher walked in. After ALL that planning and organising, nobody dared to pull it off! WTF!!! I was so game to do it but didn’t want to do it alone so ended up not doing it in the end. I was so eager to do it on that one particular teacher too whom I really found offensive because she happened to be the Mother of my Dad’s EX whom he dumped. She wasn’t very nice to me, of course. Chis.
T1 is also cocky when she wants to be. She will throw condescending banter at people she doesn’t like and speaks down to her sister quite often. Sometimes I think it is just her very critical nature being a Virgo but sometimes I just need to take a lot of deep breathes and pray for her to transition smoothly into her pre-pubescent years. She is so full of attitude these days, not towards me but to others who rub her the wrong way. She would never be rude to me, no way. She knows her boundaries but still. I have to remind her not to be nasty. On the flip-side, she is capable of being the kindest soul ever. Really, really, really. But only to those whom she loves and wants to be. She is very head strong but when push comes to shove, she will obey me.
What do I have in store when she becomes a teenager. Yikes!**************************************************************************
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.
