7 year old English exam
Recently my little one returned with her English exam papers and whilst reviewing it, we had the biggest laugh. Why? See the question below:
What makes Janice sneeze?
Options were Pollen, Cars, and Window Sills
She circled window sills…..
She did not understand what a window sill was nor pollen and in the comprehension passage, it writes those two words in the same sentence.
It is obvious she is not the voracious reader in this household.
But her big sister, the 12 year old genius, started taking the piss:
Poor Janice!! She’s going to have to live her whole life in 4 brick walls without windows!!
T2, can you go to the window? I want to see if you have the same allergy as Janice.
This means she cannot look out the car window to enjoy the view like us.
Does one go to the carpenter or the allergy Doctor to treat a window sill allergy?
At which point I told her to stop. But heck, I was laughing like crazy too uncontrollably because it was just too hilarious. It also prompted me to spend more time with her on her English.
Poor T2. I hope this incident encourages her to reorganise her priorities.
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.
