What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And all things nice
That’s what little girls are made of
Today BBBC 2017 challenge is “Strange thing you believed as a kid”. I have been pondering on this topic and couldn’t think of any strange things that I believed as a child. So, I gave my mother a call last night to see if she remembered anything. The first thing she said was that I believed that I was a monkey and could climb anything. Then she begin to reiterate the story about how I climbed a television tower in order to get on the roof. Or, how many times I have climbed trees and giving her a heart attack over it. I have had heard these stories many times over the years.
To me, it didn’t sound like a strange thing to believe in. However, the more I thought about it, I realized that it seemed strange to her that a little girl would believe that she can do anything like a boy can. In her generation that was unheard of and an unacceptable thing believe in.
Growing up, I can remember all the times that my mother bought me girly girl clothes and it would be still hanging in the closet with the tags on it. I would only wear, jeans and t-shirt all the time. It drove my mother crazy! I also remember skate boarding down the hills, playing football and riding bicycle with the boys in the neighborhood. Even my first vehicle wasn’t a car but a scooter so I can get to and from work every day.
I guess you can say that I was a tomboy growing up. So when I went on the solo motorcycle trip around North America, my mother only shook her head because she knew that I still like to do things that boys do. It may seem strange to her but not to me.
What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails
And puppy-dogs’ tails
That’s what little boys are made of
