Yup – you read that right. The moment when I paused today and thought, “This is heaven,” I was sitting on the grass and watching the garbage truck go down our street. Right next to me, Alex sat with his little hand resting on my leg.
I never in my wildest dreams imagined that I’d ever find myself waiting for and watching a garbage truck, let alone enjoying myself while doing so. But it makes Alex happy, it’s quality time that we spend together, and I’ll treasure these memories forever. It’s also a free form of entertainment for a little boy that gives him some exercise and outdoor time.
