Summer Wednesdays

Photobucket
During the summer Brayden's FAVORITE day of the week is Wednesday. Why Wednesday? Wednesday is our trash day. I know, it sounds disgusting, but this is the one day of the week he gets to be within 10 feet of a big huge truck that makes loud beeping noises . It's gotta be a boy thing. =)
I think from the moment he wakes up he is listening for the "beeping" noise with supersonic ears. Anytime he thinks it is remotely close to us, we have to rush outside "just to check". More times than not when we check, its not even close to our street. Sadly, we come back inside after waiting a few minutes and then every 10 minutes I get to hear "When is the trashman going to get here?" After a few more false alarms and waiting....




He finally arrives and Brayden couldn't be any happier!! Sometimes it's the simple things in life that are so satisifying... especially to a 4 year old. =)

Lucky for us, we get to experience this 2 times every Wednesday during summer break; we have both trash and recycle. (I know, so exciting!?!) The funny thing about it, every Wednesday, I still have to explain to him why the truck only gets 1 of the traschans. He is always so worried about the "forgotten" trashcan. Once I remind him that the other guy will come later, the excitment starts all over again. =)

Fortunately for us we have two sweet guys that come get our trash/recycle that always willingly lend several waves to Brayden as he watches in excitement.

After each one leaves...it's chore time. =)

What a gorgeous boy! Cute post.

I also love the bulletin board idea. I think I am going to try that for my younger daughter's room.

just found your blog; your little boy is sooo cute! I loved this entry! we have a corgi who hates the trash truck. Barks crazily when he sees one or hears one. We have trash day on Tuesdays; I was going to do a blog entry one time called Trash Truck Tuesday about his strong dislike of trash trucks. glad to hear your son likes them! He'd love our neighborhood; we have 3 cans; trash, recycle, and green waste (yard clippings and such) and depending on the street you live on, each truck could go up the street and then down the street. Six trips!! It makes for a very long morning some days with the corgi and his barking :)

enjoy the day!
