Friday is trash day in our city, and trash day holds a level of excitement for kids that we adults just don't get. Something about the sound of the big green dump truck really gets Luca giddy. If we happen to be home when the 'trash man' comes up our street, I open the blinds for Luca and let her watch the big truck growl down the street, raising the dumpsters above its body and shaking them empty with two mechanical arms. She gets so excited she yells out, "OH! OH LOOK MAMA!!!!" and her little bare feet hop up and down slapping against the tile.
