Boys, Boys, Annoying, Boys !!! (through the eyes of an 8 year old)

My daughter's teacher called me today. I am always worried when I see a phone call from the school; not because my kids get into trouble (because I have such good kids). I was worried as mom that one of them got hurt or was sick. Well, that sure was not the case today !

My 8 year old daughter Maria's teacher called today to congratulate me. My Maria Stella won a Young Authors Award for her poetry ! Her poem will be published in a commemorative book that goes to all of the schools in the district and all of the public libraries in the district - plus we get a copy (I asked them if I could get a case !).

So, here it goes - look through the eyes of an 8 year old girl for 2 minutes!

Boys, Annoying, Boys !

Boys, boys they're everywhere.
Boys, boys they're in my hair.
Trying to get under my skin.

Especially annoying when they win,
a game that I don't want to play.
Making me play most every day.
When I say "No!" they tattle on mom,
Mom says, "Honey, I have lots of work,c'mon!"

Boys, boys playing sports like hockey and soccer.
When it comes to the subject of mocking me,
they're quite the mocker.

I think boys should live on Mars.
Instead of stealing all my chocolate bars.

Boys, boys they're boogery and hairy.
Who in their right minds would go off and marry.... Boys ?!

- Maria Stella Lierman


  1. That is great! My barely 9 year old daughter would agree. Kudos to your daughter and you must be very proud too. ;-)
