Chapter 88 of the book Family7
challange from Robyn Corum
"Boys Will Be Boys" by Barb Hensongispsaca
Green jumpy frogs, slippery downed logs -
some things that tempted my boys.
Bicycle trips, bruised swollen lips
which always went with their toys.

A day with Dad, their biggest fad
would always leave them with smiles.
They watched races, knew the paces
and each one of the car styles.

Cheap labeled jeans, by any means
would never be what they'd wear.
Had to be tight, or they weren't right,
they wanted the girls to stare.

Music real high, never knew why
they never seemed to go deaf.
They'd never fight, one would go right,
the other seemed to go left.

Didn't mind dirt, wouldn't cry when hurt -
boys are so different from girls.
They liked things rough, had to look tough,
but they still looked cute with curls.


The book continues with Pieces Broken. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

I told Robyn that I could not do these so she double dared me. You know me and a challenge.
