Tuesdays and Fridays are very special days for Holden, Heaton, and Wilder Reich.
In fact, twice a week, these 2-year-old triplets eagerly wait in anticipation, and as the big moment draws near, both Heaton and Wilder grab a bottle of Gatorade, run down to the end of their driveway, and sit in suspense.
As soon as they hear the familiar honk of their good friends — whom they lovingly refer to as Mr. Rob and Mr. Chad — the kids wave as the garbage collectors pull over for a special visit. After excited squeals and big hugs are exchanged, the toddlers eagerly give their favorite guys each a drink and sometimes even homemade treats like chocolate cookies. The hardworking men then excitedly (and patiently) allow the little ones to be helpers.
“I’m grateful for today,” the toddlers’ mom, Martha Sugalski, wrote on Facebook. “Grateful the babies were able to see their friends that they clearly love so much. Grateful that these men take time out of their busy schedule to hang with us for a little bit on Tuesdays and Fridays. They truly are our favorite days of the week.”
