Seven-year-old Cara thought she had found the perfect way to get an extra week off school.

The girl provided her parents with a note (hand-written in marker) that read: “The school company is taking a brake so the kids will get one more week of school off and we will need your child to sign their name here.” The girl had already signed it “Cara G.”

According to a Jan. 4, 2016, UPI story, the forged note was delivered to the parents by their 7-year-old daughter, who told them she found it in the mailbox.

“We almost bought it until she said ‘brake’ not ‘break,’” the mother joked when she posted a photo of the note. “She's 7. With proper stationary and computer skills, years from now I'm in trouble.”
