That’s what little boys are made of

Sugar and spice and everything nice,

That’s what little girls are made of.

Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails,

That’s what little boys are made of.

Except in Spain.

Pom-poms and socks and golden girl locks.

Buttons and bows with suspenders and hose.

Ribbon and trim, polka-dots dots but no grin.

Spit and spiddle, with a wee penis fiddle.

THAT is what  little boys are made of.



  1. Dear me….those poor little boys! Can you image the complex the one in green polkadot shorts and (blouse) is going to have??

  2. I love how you have written it in rhyme with satire,
    I wonder what a Spaniard would think of our attire!

  3. HI! The first one looks cute! I guess it depends on where you are. Here, in Barcelona, that style is a bit old-fashioned and feminine, we dress a bit more casual. I think their mothers (numbers 2 and 3) wanted a girl and are dressing their boys accordingly (girl)…

  4. i think this little boys are dressed very well an cute, not complex because is a normal thing and because other boys of their age dress the same, but im from and oldfashioned city of spain maybe i have a different sense of fashion. But i prefer babies dress like that and not like adults.
