What Are Little Girls Made Of?

Act #190:  Write your own nursery rhymes.

5-year old son:  Mom, how does that rhyme go again?  You know the one that tells you what little girls and little boys are made of?

Mom:  Oh, that one.  Where did you hear that anyway, son?

Son:  I think I heard it from one of my friends at school.

Mom:  I see.  I think it goes something like this. 

Boldness to think of a world beyond pink.
That's what little girls are made of.
Courage to stand tall, even if you don't play ball.
That's what little boys are made of.
Son:  Are you sure that's how it goes, mom?
Mom:  Well, I think there are several versions, but this one is my favorite.  Do you like it?
Son:  Yes, I do!
