For Holly's birthday one of the presents my parents gave her was a pok-a-dot umbrella and matching galoshes. She LOVES her umbrella (I wish I could remember the way she pronounces it. It is really cute)! And you think you can only use umbrellas to keep you dry from the rain, then you are sorely mistaken. You can use it to put in your baby stroller (when other favorites are in time out), you can use it to pretend you're mopping, you can use it as a cane, and you can use it to swat at flies. I am sure she will come up with more uses, for she has only had it for about 3-4 days!
