The first thing Ethan does every single morning is put out his trash cans. I guess he says, “good morning” first, but his next move is to get out all of the trash. And all day long he plays “trash” and tries to get me to play along. The problem is that there are lots of rules as to which trash I can put in the trash truck. So mostly I just talk about the trash and ask him whose trash he is picking up at any given moment. He travels far – Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin – always picking up the trash of those he loves.
