Some little water babies like the bath. They splash around and make a mess but they donâ€™t mind when itâ€™s time to wash up. Nanny lathers the soap in her hands and then lathers up her slippery water tot. There are so many precious little parts, so many little cracks and crevices to get into and keep smooth and soft.
Some little ones are not as easy to keep clean. Sometimes Nanny has to wonder how one little person can bring home so much sand from the beach, or gravel from the play ground. As if that wasnâ€™t enough, the little brats fight about getting in the tub, and washing is another battle altogether. It tries my nerves, thatâ€™s for sure, but thereâ€™s something I know that they donâ€™tâ€“something that you learn with age: some things are inevitable. Just as you got dirty, you will get clean, and Nanny always gets her way.
Donâ€™t want soap in your eyes? Hold still. Donâ€™t want Nanny to have to lather and scrub and rinse and lather and scrub and rinse again? Donâ€™t go rolling around in the sandbox; and when you do get out of the sandbox, do a little hokey pokey and shake it off!
Then there are some little ones that are so naughty they have to be cleaned especially hard. Little boys with potty mouth get their mouths washed out with soap. And some little ones are so naughty they have to be bent right over the side of the tub to have a slick enema tube up their bottoms to clean them out good. How bad do you have to be for that? Do you really want to find out?
Be sweet to Nanny and Nanny will be sweet to you.
Naughty Nanny Ella
