There once was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very very good, but when she was bad she was horrid.
Little children should be seen but not heard.
Ruminating, on these words I heard constantly as a child, as a child I thought that I was unlucky. I always got into trouble it seemed. But adults that knew me as a child say I was a good kid. Though I do know, I have a little mischievous side to me, but I got caught all the time…hahha…these phrases escaped my lips in growing my own daughter.
I would be curious what phrases you grew up hearing.
