Zen and the art of recycle truck placement
Some children hum, some bounce, other sit quietly, and a few cuddle appliances (Ronan's cousin Lexi used to do that!) as a method to assuage anxiety or simply chill out. For Ronan it's all about organizing his cars.
First the motorcycle...
... and then the recycling truck
He likes to line up, rearrange, line up again, move, then line up once more his rolling armada of vehicles. There are cars, trucks, helicopters, motorcycles, trains, and sometimes boats that partake in his orchestrated movements; it's about the only indoor task he becomes thoroughly engrossed in.
A rare interruption of his time with his vehicles
Mom and I hope that one day he'll do this for all of our books, papers, groceries, linens, CDs, and shoes but until then we'll be happy to enjoy his quiet time with all of his little 'things that go'.
