Sugar and Spice v. Frogs and Snails

Have you heard the poem, What are Little Boys/Girls Made of?

What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails,
And puppy-dogs' tails;
That's what little boys are made of.

What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice,
And all that's nice;
That's what little girls are made of.

The truth of this poem seemed evident as I watched our son and our friend's daughter eat cupcakes.

Don't you agree?


  1. This is by far one of my most favorite posts from you, Ali. True brilliance. The pictures only make this post better.

    Have I told you how much I adore your new site? I was excited to click my over here. Your designer did an EXCELLENT job.

    I left you a bit of link love on our blog today. If you are interested, check it out. You'll just have to figure out which link is yours, which hopefully should not be too hard!


  2. our little cuties are so precious! Love the pics and hope we can come see you soon.

  3. SO darlin' and look how snazzy and adorable your blog looks fabulous!!

    There are times where Princess is much more frogs and tails and Monkey much more sweet and spice, but... I think they just twist it up to drive me bananas ;-) LOL
