Rowan's brolly

November 24, 2008

Rowan’s brolly, originally uploaded by Mrs Little Nut Tree.

Last week, Daddy came to nursery and on the way there it started to rain.

‘Oh crap’, he said – as he walked through the park. ‘No raincoats for the girls and no umbrellas’.

When he got there he’d been totally pissed on and Ella laughed. Rowan laughed too.

He was really wet through.

‘You’re really wet through, Daddy’, they said.

Jade’s mum spotted his predicament and offered an umbrella for Rowan to carry, out of the goodness of her sweet heart.

‘Here’s an umbrella for Rowan to carry’, she said ‘out of the goodness of my heart’.

Rowan borrowed the brolly and they all walked home and kept dry.

Today, Daddy reminded Rowan that she should find a special way to say thank you to Jade’s mummy and he made me suggested that I draw this picture as a wonderful gift.

Rowan drew it all by herself and stayed in the lines as well and she wrote ‘thank you’ at the bottom and wrote her name on the back.

What Rowan really wants is for Mummy to put it on her blog and see what people think. When Mummy asked me, Rowan thought their favourite bit would be the colours she chose.

‘I think their favourite bit will be the colours’ she said

As narrated by Rowan.

    It’s a brilliant picture by Rowan. I love the colours, especially the blue bits. Blue is my favourite colour.

    Dear Rowan, I suspect your Mum made most of that up because you are far too lovely to say crap! even in a narration, I like the pink and purple next to each other. You have drawn a fab umbrella, if I needed one now I would get one just the same
