Smarter Mom: It’s Umbrella Month!

We have three black ones, a yellow one and a pink and white Hello Kitty one. I'm talking umbrellas, folks. Did you know March is Umbrella Month? No? Well, now you do!  I always have a tendency to lose umbrellas, so I don't spend a whole lot of money on them, but they are a necessity here in the city where we walk so much, even if it's dripping and dropping from the skies. Such an amazing tool, it dates back to ancient China and Greece, though it was in the 1800s that the kind we know came to be. So many ways to celebrate our rain-shielding friend, here's a few odes to the umbrella.

This will never get lost among the sea of black umbrellas. With a trim of happy yellow to brighten any rainy day, the bubble balloon is over at Amazon.

For some reason, I'm just digging this peacock umbrella, kind of chic, but different enough to be a tad kitschy. Nab it at Amazon.

Over on CatherineMarissa at Esty, this sterling silver ring is a cute dainty way to show your love of rainy days and that which helps you through it.

We all need a place to store ‘em, so why not get a cool umbrella holder for your entryway? Skinny, sleek, mod...the Polder Slimline stand is super cool from Amazon.

Wear your umbrella love proudly with this cool t-shirt from Zazzle. I adore it because is has the city skyline with a pop of color via that yellow umbrella. The cool thing is you can get it on a variety of colors and styles of Hanes t-shirts.

What color is your umbrella? How about your kids' umbrellas? Do you lose your umbrellas often?

I like the umbrella storm. I have a dark pink and a black umbrella. I usually hang it up after leaving it outside to dry. I haven't lost it yet, knock on wood!

I have a really ugly green one that we grabbed during an unexpected storm a few years ago... We usually prefer rain jackets and boots to umbrellas! :-)

 I like that umbrella holder and that Tshirt. Cute!

We have a few umbrellas! Purple, blacks, red. I also want to get one for DS3 and my nephew. They love Thomas so I want to get them one with a raincoat and rainboots!
