the long way home

we had just arrived back in belgium from scotland, and amelia wanted to walk all the way home in the rain, holding her umbrella, and towing her wheelie bag . . .
she had passersby in fits.
every time she met someone who had an umbrella also, she would stop and have a serious and formal monosyllabic discussion with them about her boots (she can jump in puddles while she is wearing them apparently - the method we used to bribe her to even try a pair on), and also her umbrella and wheelie bag.

the 5 minute walk took us 35 minutes in all . . . and we were drenched, because she had our umbrella, and we couldn't fit in the stroller or under its plastic cover.
