Childhood Promises

promise

Cross my heart and hope to die

Promises made should not be broken

Crossed fingers do not count

Cross my heart and hope to die

Integrity is learned in childhood

Be careful what you model to your children

Cross my heart and hope to die

Promises made should not be broken

    A wonderful post…
    excellent memoir idea…childhood promises and the way they were made…the pinkie promise I saw two adults do just the other day…obviously from their common childhood memories.

    Thank you very much.
    Peace

    thanks Pat for triggering a pleasant high school memory

    the Family Studies teacher had poorly modeled promises to her son and she wanted to know what everyone’s earliest memory was

    so that she could figure out how much damage control

    I was the youngest at 2

    but most averaged 3 to 3.5

    her son was 4 so she had a lot of work to do
