My 24 year old daughter ended a text conversation by asking, ‘Pinky promise?’
She wanted to be reassured that everything was good at home because of a number of blips that have been going on.
I was able to text back, ‘Pinky promise.x’, with a smile.
It is one form of promise that all my children hold dear to.
And all because we saw it in a movie many years ago. And I can’t remember which one.
The older kids have passed it on to the younger ones and they all take it so sincerely. Me too.
