Not because he didn’t have one or couldn’t use it but that he wouldn’t because the umbrella was too “joyful”.
After I pulled myself together, I knew that I had to write a blog post. And for that, I needed a picture.
The problem was that the umbrella was in the car and it was raining out. And, well, I didn’t want to get wet. So, I had Artemis put on her rain coat and stand outside in such a spot that the camera wouldn’t get wet (water can really damage a camera you know) but that I could still get the shot from under the overhang.
Why didn’t I use that shot in my post?
Well, I realized after the fact that not everyone would ask their child to do that. Or, that their kid would actually go out in the rain and do it. Willingly. With no promises of cookies adorned with icing from an easy bake decorating pen.
Maybe with no promises.
Fine, I promised.
And I delivered. Barely.
