We have been together for 20 years, the Hubs and I, and not once have I pondered about being with another man. Despite his boarding school rigidness and family imperfections, he is the greatest thing in my world. Although he represents the hard decisions in our home, he is also big enough to work for us, fill up my petrol for me every single week, check my tyres and load my Touch & Go whenever he knows I am about to drive a fair bit, tracks my whereabouts with his phone app, and spends ALL his weekends and evenings with us at home. People tease him that he has no friends, no life, but he just chooses to be with us instead because we are his priority. We have so many haters I am sure, but hello, I chose him. People say he must be boring because he seldom talks to others (as he is a people repeller like me) but little do they know what a riot he is with us at home. He is crazy funny with us at home!
During the weekends, he does all the cooking, driving, washing up, basically EVERYTHING so I do not have to lift a finger. He understands that I do everything during the week already with the kids so the weekends and evenings are officially my off days. And now, he is quitting his job to take care of me FULL TIME. How bloody awesome is that. I am so darn lucky.
And I will admit that I really felt his love when his company offered him a double deal to stay on and he declined. They made him the offer to solve all his problems and in a way, we felt bad too because here they were being so kind to us, and here we were, not accommodating them. I was terrified that the Hubs would be drawn back for so much money but so glad he stood his ground. He did it for me and it showed me that he really knew what was important. Our lives are important. All the money in the world was not going to make us happier and happier. We are already happy. It is time together that we want. So in exactly 1 week, we will see my new house husband at home God only knows doing what. It would be weird!
But having him home would be great as it would give me an extra brain to bounce my ideas off with. I would build the greatest company to date because I can. The girls are not happy about him being home because they think that they would have less money to spend without Daddy’s salary and that he would no longer be the boss of his work place. How innocent the eyes of children are. Truth be told, I think they are just worried that he will be home to nag them about their homework and school work and to cut their TV and phone time LOL.
I am so happy I chose my yin to my yang. The guy who is always thinking of my Mom and suggesting that we go visit Nana this weekend and every other weekend. He truly is our everything as we are his everything. He takes such good care of my 2 monkeys, teaching them about science and how things work. Whenever T1 asks me questions, I would just act dumb all the time because I am too lazy to answer her so the Hubs gets all the credit about being the smart one. Do I care? Not one bit. They can think Mommy is the dumb blonde but truly they don’t because they have seen how amazing Mommy can be too. Haha.
We are really blessed. Thank you, Universe.
Updates – He changed his mind!!!!! Blablablabla….. My Mom always told me not to open my big mouth whenever something good happened as I would jinx it and I have done exactly that. Blablablabla……
I am furious but trying to come to acceptance.**************************************************************************
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.
