Counterfeit

There once was a little girl named Gracie,
and she really loved to shop.

For everyday she begged her mom
"Just let me get one little top?"

Until one day she heard her mom say,
"I'm sorry honey, not today. Do you think they just give this stuff away?"

She hung her head low and back home they went
And later at her drawing table, this little girl had an idea.

"I think I will draw me some money to spend at the store.
For surely mom can't object, she's always such a bore."

She brings it in and proudly states,
"Let's go shopping now, I have my own dough"

Her mom sadly rolls her eyes and says,
"On what tree does this money grow?"

She pulled it out and I finally saw what she had in her little mit,
My seven year old little girl was now a counterfeit!


Ok - it didn't really happen that way (exactly) but she did try to print her own money.

If it were just that simple!

Gotta love kids! Don't you love it when you tell them you don't have any money and they just say, "Well use your card." The money she drew is pretty cute though, you'll have to save it.
