Silly Little Boy

My son prefers to use our bathroom trash can for most of his disposal needs. Like most families, we do have a regular sized trash can in the kitchen. It still amazes me that when he is near the kitchen (or even in the kitchen) he will still set off toward the bathroom to throw something away. Maybe he forgets about the other trash cans when he doesn't see them. Maybe he prefers the bathroom trash can because it is small and just his size. Maybe he welcomes another opportunity to catch a whiff of the vanilla scented trash bags that are only in the bathroom. I don't know why he does it, but he always does it.

Now let me set the scene for this particular trash can visit. He had been playing with a large sand castle bucket, and it broke. (He was obviously not putting sand into it. In fact, I have no idea what he and his brother were doing with it when it broke, since it was a pretty sturdy bucket.) Nevertheless, after his initial disappointment about it being broken, he decided that it would need to be thrown away. After this decision I left to do something else and didn't give it another thought until I went into the bathroom and saw this.

Maybe it is just me, but every time I look at this picture I laugh and laugh and laugh. It is so funny to me that he would put into the bathroom trash can a broken bucket that may actually be bigger than the trash can itself. You are so very, very funny, my silly little boy!
