One advandage of being a tomboy-boys never messed with me...



At a young age
I played army,
Cowboys and Indians


I was better at
Basketball, baseball
And football, then any boy

I 'd climb trees
Never fell out
I was a tomboy

I preferred
Wearing pants
When I got home from school

Yes, I was a tomboy
To this day-
I guess I still am

I was a tomboy too! I had three older brothers and lived in a neighborhood full of boys. I wore hand me downs. I wasn't as tough as you sound but I was a tomboy!

Love ya!

I'm still a tomboy, but I have told you this before. Never been a girly girl although there are times I do wear dresses... depends on my mood.

I was better at basketball too, I was quite tall for a girl back then, have shrunk with age thank goodness LOL

Love and Light
