When Nobody is Watching
There’s lots of things that you can do
when nobody is watching you.
Play with your food then wipe your hands
all down your front and on your pants.
Or pick your nose, or sniff with glee.
There’s no-one there to see you – see?
Scratch your penknife on the chair
and carve your own initials there.
Pull a thread-long from your clothes
then tie it round your tongue and nose.
Doodle where you shouldn’t scrawl
or stick your gum against the wall.
Bite your nails or suck your thumb …
but look-out for a Peeping Tom!

N is for Nosey. Nosey people seem to show up just at the wrong time and catch me doing something I shouldn’t. Mums are exceptionally good at knowing when we are being naughty. Do you ever get caught out?
