This I Promise

To my children:

I am sure (oh, hell, I know, who are we kidding here) that I have broken promises to you and for that, I am sorry. I am sure that I will do it again and all I can offer, again, are my apologies, for whatever they're worth. I am human and we humans tend to fail, often and sometimes spectacularly.

But I can promise you two things, things that I will never back out of. Two promises that will never let you down.



I promise that I will always love you, no matter what. Even when you're driving me to drink distraction, I will always, always love you.









Also, I promise that you will never be eaten by a dinosaur.






This post brought to you by The Bug's latest fear, which seems to involve dinosaurs lurking around every corner, just waiting to pounce.

Awww...true, true.

Those are easy promises to keep!

I'm glad I don't have to deal with fears. He's such a fearless guy.

P thinks a lot of things are going to get her lately. She's not fearful exactly, but she's forever asking for confirmation - "He can't get you", the "right?" is implied. I then have to say that "it" (spider, newt, snake, etc) is in a cage or far away from her, and will certainly not "get you".

Dear little souls...

Randomly, my word verification is "catrande", which I think is rather nice.

Oh sure, you say that now! But in 20 years when genetic engineering has brought them all back to life....

Just kidding. It's nice to have a few of those easy promises in your back pocket, isn't it?

I think I need to come up with some of those easy promises for my kids!

I love you coming back with this.

Dinasours are fucking scary. And life, sadly, full of broken promises.

OK, that? Is awesome. And I love the way you presented it. That reassurance is what it's all about.

I'm so glad you're back and equally glad you won't let your kids get eaten by dinosaurs!
