“If I Had $100” by my 7-Year Old Daughter

By JLP | April 23, 2012

My daughter had to write a little story on the topic of “If I Had $100.” This is what she wrote:

A pool so I could swim. A pair of new shoes so I could have a matching outfit. A table cloth so our table can look pretty. New higheel because they are pretty. A new 3 story house for my parents so we can have 3 TVs. A dresser with hangers so we don’t have to buy some.

She’s not ready to leave the house yet. Crazy (and cute) kid. I love the way kids look at things.

    Sounds like she needs a little more personal finance training. :)

    Ahh the blissful ignorance of childhood. If only we really could have all that great stuff for only $100.

    Remember when you’re 7-years old, $100 is a lot of money.

    I was expecting “After diversifying into multiple different financial vehicles, I will be opening up an IRA for a comfortable retirement.” :)

    A little much for a tablecloth but not bad for a three story home. Nice that she was thinking of others.

    I wish her world existed. I want in on that $100 3 story house. 😉 Thank her for the post. :-)
