Waiting with great anticipation
Every Thursday morning Ronan has his breakfast on our deck that overlooks the street. He eats his oatmeal and berries while sitting in an Adirondack chair, waiting for the telltale squeak and grumble of the recycling truck.
Ronan loves recycle trucks
It's one of Ronan's favorite times of the day; he loves watching the truck make its way down the street collecting the week's recyclables. The man who drives the truck always looks for Ronan and gives him a big smile and wave as he passes by. Ronan shows his appreciation by taking his little Matchbox recycle truck out with him and shows it enthusiastically to the driver.

Surprisingly, love for garbage/recycling trucks is not uncommon in toddlers. A friend at work also has a two-year old infatuated with trucks that collect stuff. Apparently there are quite a few engaging videos on YouTube (like this one, with over 1.2 million views!) that Ronan needs to watch.
"Up... and duhmph!" goes the recycle bin
