Handy dandy

Having a child that is obsessed with cars and trucks comes in handy now and then. Monday is our garbage day. We are still used to having dumpsters and not having to put out the garbage can when it is garbage day. Monday morning Evan was doing his usual peer out the window and look for cars routine. My husband heard him yell "Garbage truck!" That reminded my husband that he had forgotten to put out the garbage can. Luckily Evan's yell was early enough that my husband was able to rush the can out to the curbside. Crisis averted!

That's so cute - hopefully my son will be similarily obsessed - we always seem to almost forget garbage day!

OH! I need him at my house. I can't tell you how many times I have had to run out in my robe to put the garbage cans out because I suddenly hear the garbage truck coming down the street. (Ours comes at about 6:30-7:00 am!)

Sort of like having a watch-dog but of the cuter variety!!

Good job Evan!

Next step: identifying knocks on the door as a) visitors or b) salespeople. And teach him the duck and hide maneuver to pretend no one's home.

LOL, that happens to us too! Only Lance yells "See!" when he hears the garbage truck coming because I would always say, 'Let's go see the truck!'
