Into the trash it goes...

We got a new garbage can for our kitchen--finally (we had just been re-using shopping bags, but they fill up so fast and look bad on the counter, so I finally picked up a garbage can at Menard's). Anyway, I have been giving Andrew things to throw in there (paper towel, plastic, etc.) and he will run over to the can with a big smile on his face. Afterwards, I clap and say, "yay!!!" and he beams with pride.

Last night, he must have been a little over-zealous because I saw him by the garbage can and the next thing I know, he had tossed his big toy car in there. I told him no, and went to retrieve the car. I also found another toy, his spoon, a hand towel, our cell phone, and a quarter in the garbage. Seems like someone had been busy all day! Ah, the joys of having a toddler. It made me laugh, though!

P.S., I love how my hubby said, "I think he threw the cell phone in there earlier"....yet, he didn't do anything about it. Men! No wonder I couldn't reach him from work yesterday; it was completely dead!

I think he threw the cell phone in there earlier- WTF? I mean really..... WOW!

B is a garbage can fanatic too! I think I mentioned to you that lots of stuff has been MIA in the last 8 months or so. We think it got tossed. Get Andrew going on the recycling! It is way cute watching B empty the recycling box under the counter and transfering it to the bag on recycling day.
