Over in the corner
Underneath the tree
There’s a shiny silver present
That’s been wrapped up just for me.

It’s been sitting over there
For more than a whole week.
If I unpick just the corner
I can take a little peek.

This sticky tape is tricky
I’ll pull a little more,
And then I’ll put it all right back
The way it was before.

On no! I pulled too hard.
There’s paper on the floor.
I can see my present now,
But Mum is at the door!

I think that she’ll be cross.
And Father Christmas too!
He’ll put me on the bad list
Although it isn’t true.

I really am a good kid.
(My Nan says I’m a joy!)
I only wanted just a peek
At my new Christmas toy.

The only thing to do
Is to hide behind a chair.
If I stay perfectly still
Mum won’t know I’m there.

She comes into the room
And cries out “You’re so silly!”
I think that I’ve been caught,
But she’s looking right at Millie.

Patience is a virtue?
I don’t agree with that.
Check all your presents early,
Then blame it on the cat!

  1. Ha! As always, I love this. We don’t put presents under the tree until Christmas Eve because between the boys, the cats and the dogs they wouldn’t last long! In fact, we don’t even have a tree yet.

    1. I would like to say that I have learnt from my mistakes and that next year I will be a bit more restrained and sensible, but I just get too excited. I’m the biggest kid of all about Christmas! πŸ™‚

  2. This is fab! It’s so hard to see a shiny present & not open it. We don’t put them out until Christmas eve because my kids have no patience lol they’d constantly ask if they could open the presents. #abitofeverything x

    1. Yes, I think that would have been the wiser move. This will be the first year that my biggest really understands the whole concept of presents so it’s never been an issue before. Live and learn! πŸ™‚

    1. I clearly have no patience because I put the tree up and the presents out weeks before Christmas. I’m worse than he is! πŸ™‚
