A conversation with my 5 year old daughter

Mommy: Tee, Mommy is very sad because I discovered today that Bumbo is ruined.

Tee: *blank look*

Mommy: Bumbo was very expensive and I am so sad that all that money spent on it is wasted.

Tee: *still confused* Nevermind, T2 can use it. It’s not a waste.

Mommy: Well, it is….because it was SO expensive that even if T2 used it, it’s still very expensive. I wanted to sell it after T2 used it, so I could make some money from it. But now I cannot sell it because it’s ruined.

Tee: *looking innocent* How come?

Mommy: Well, some people have been using it the wrong way and playing with it so there are now cracks and tears on it. I can’t sell it now. People who are too big for it shouldn’t sit in it and fiddly hands shouldn’t bend Bumbo where it shouldn’t be bent.

Tee: *sheepish look* It’s OK, Mommy. I’ll pay you back for it. When Daddy comes home today, I’ll ask him to go to my bank to take out some money for you, OK? Would that make you happy?

Mommy: Do you think you have a lot of money? *laughs*

Tee: Yeah! My Nana and Kong-Kong always gives me money. I’ll give it all to you, ok?

Mommy: But that’s not really your money because that was money given to you. It is easy money. I only want hard-earned money, not free money. If you want, you can work for me and I’ll pay you.

Tee: OK, then you know how you always ask me to go and bring you your phone? So now, every time I get you your phone, you pay me money, OK?

Mommy: NO!!! All the things you do in this house is so you can stay here! I’m not paying you for getting my phone!

Tee: OK, then what do you want me to do?

Mommy: If you keep quiet for 15 minutes every time I tell you to, I’ll pay you 50 cents.

Tee: *thinking* How about one hundred million dollars?

Mommy: WHAT!! You don’t even know what one hundred million dollars is!!

Tee: Mmm….I don’t think I like this job.

*T2 started crying so the discussion ended*

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.
