I’m off to visit Nannie,
To give Mum and Dad a break.
I’ll have to pack my suitcase,
What am I going to take?
A digger, tractor and a train,
My coat and wellies (in case of rain),
My Noo-noos—two should do,
One for night and one for day—
My new football, so we can play,
A vest and pants, a pull-up too
(In case I need to use the loo),
A jigsaw puzzle, pencil case,
A flannel for my sticky face,
My PJs for my sleepy bed,
My helmet to protect my head,
A hat and gloves, in case it snows,
Some clean socks for my little toes,
Some snacks if I am not well fed…
Maybe Nannie could come here instead!
