YOU AREN’T RESPECTING MY UMBRELLA!!!
Such was the discussion between my six and eight year old daughters en route to school last week. We recently had a wind-related umbrella incident which reduced our pool of umbrellas by one. As a result our eight year old is currently required to share one of her two umbrellas with her sister.
When we are walking to school with umbrellas and it is not actively raining, my six year old prefers to use her umbrella as a walking stick. It has a fine tip for poking into the grass and tapping on the pavement along the sidewalk. My eight year old was not enthusiastic about seeing her umbrella treated in such a fashion.
