The Wonder of the Trash Truck!

You hear the rumbling make its way down the street and you waddle your best waddle to the kitchen window.  The blinds are in your way, but you can fix that.  Just pry those pesky blinds far enough apart to wedge your little nose and eyes thru the opening.  Your face lights up with pure excitement as you yell, “Tuck! Tuck!” I turn from the dishes to see it’s trash time…one of the highlights of your week.  Something about that big truck hoisting our trash up into the air and dumping it out of sight brings you such joy! And as it drives off, you say your farewells until Friday, “Bye, Tuck!”

I’m not sure if it’s the truck’s size, the thunderous sound, or its Inspector Gadget-like arms that reach out and grab the canister that you adore so much…maybe it’s all that and more.  But for whatever reason you love it!  And I love that you love it, Kenley Joy!  I love that you are able to find excitement and pleasure in something as simple and mundane as the trash being picked up every Tuesday and Friday.  And I love that it’s a reminder for me to look for the awe and wonder in the simple things!


Your turn…What kinds of everyday activities or objects do your kiddos love?
