I Like Being a Girl

by Kelly & Valerie Boland

I like being a girl because I like to be pretty
and I like to have long hair
and I'd like to be a mommy when I grow up.

Girls like ponies and boys don't,
Boys like cars and monsters.

Boys are wild and girls are not.

I love being a girl;
It's my favorite.

Kelly and Valerie Boland are kindergarteners and fraternal twin sisters. Each has written several poems, which they read aloud at their school poetry slam in May. This year, Valerie was elected Class President, beating out two boys in her class who then became her Vice President and Treasurer. Kelly plans to become an artist in the future.
