Then I look at the best gift I have ever given and it was one I gave today to a teenage girl who just turned 14. It was a gift card with one of those MasterCard logos so she can use it anywhere she wants and it was preloaded with "X" amount of dollars for her to just enjoy. Now she has had gift cards before, but nothing like this because she looked at it and her eyes just about bugged out of her head and she said "MOM, DAD LOOK AT THIS...MY VERY FIRST CREDIT CARD !!!" I said oh dear, somebody has not told their daughter about that naughty word and what a mistake those are. I looked at her and said "no dear child, that is a preloaded DEBIT card that will allow to spend up to $$$ anywhere you want" and she says to me anywhere and I said yes anywhere.
She looks at her mother and says fire up those ponies I am ready for the Mall. Her mother looks at me and says what have you done to me...I just look at her and laugh. This teenagers father just says she is your daughter and heads back to his office. I looked at Dad and said not to worry, your oldest son will be looking for you in a couple of months...I don't think you will get off this easy. He says you wouldn't dare and I said oh yea, try me. Because he will be turning 13, he gets cash. We are the unofficial God Parents that every child wants.
