Money For Christmas Shopping

Money For Christmas ShoppingWell it's now approaching the time to do a little shopping we told Kamila today. We had set a little money aside for Kamila to do here Christmas shopping. Kamila had not dealt with money before so she was a bit bemused when we presented it to her.

She looked at it and asked "What do I do with this?"

It is very simple we explained. "You look for something to buy, find out how much it is decided whether it is a good buy and swap it the money."

Kamila was quite excited with the prospect of looking for something to swap for money, but then there was a little pause and another question was fired at us. "Where did you get this money?"

"We worked for it Kamila" we told her. "We go to work and for the work we do for other people they pay us money. Sometimes we work for ourselves, selling things we have made for money or getting paid for selling books we have written."

"I'd like to work and earn money." Kamila sighed as she gathered the money feeling slightly guilty she hadn't worked for it.

"Next year Kamila, we'll give you chores and you can then start earning, but just enjoy the shopping with this money until then." we told her.

Kamila sprung to life again and announced, "I won't be spending it on myself anyway, everything I buy will be little presents for everyone."

With this we prepared to go to town, and another adventure for Kamila shopping. We know she'll love it, she's female camel.
