CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hello. My name's Ben.
Hey, have you ever thought about all the different things
you can do with the grown-ups who look after you?
See, they're not just there to make your meals and tuck you up in bed.
If you use your imagination...
there are lots more things you can use them for.
Shall we find out what they are?
Now, this story is called Meet The Parents.
And it's by Peter Bently and Sara Ogilvie.
Sometimes, you think that your mum and dad are there just to nag you,
and boss you like mad!
"Brush your teeth!"
"Get a move on."
"Say 'thank you'."
"No more sweets!"
"Wash your hands."
"Eat your peas!"
Do this, do that...
it's a terrible bore.
But here are some more things
your parents are for.
Parents are handy as mending machines -
for teddies and train tracks and kneecaps in jeans.
Parents are great to build mountains of sand on.
And lovely big heaters
for warming your hands on.
Parents are sofas, for putting your feet up.
And dustbins for bits you don't want to eat up.
Parents are tent poles for dens that are wonky.
Dad is a horse
and Mum is a donkey!
Parents are targets
for ketchup and hoses,
and hunters for toys that you left in the roses.
Parents are towels for wiping your grime on.
They're whirlers and twirlers
and tree trunks to climb on.
Parents are grandstands to make you grow tall.
They're jotters and blotters...
but that isn't all.
Parents sort out all your messes and muddles.
and parents give cuddles.
Parents tell stories and tuck you up tight.
Snug as a bug in a rug, every night.
Parents say "Sorry!"
to folks who've just met you.
They make it all better
when something's upset you.
And once they have fixed all your problems and pickles
you'd better watch out, because parents love...
That story was called Meet The Parents.
Hey, maybe the person who looks after you
will have time for a quick tickle before bed?
Better snuggle down, then - quietly -
for a good night's sleep.
Hey - sweet dreams.
I'll see you soon, for another bedtime story.
