Not a Peep!

Cameron is pretty much like Rambo. Or like Iron Man. Or like some other incredibly tough guy that walks around with huge wounds that don't seem to bother him.

That is Cam in a nutshell.

This kid gets so many bumps, bruises, cuts, scrapes, etc and I don't even know how they happen because he never cries! Just this morning he ran and fell straight into the wall. He has a HUGE goose egg right on his head. Didn't even wimper.
The other day he fell off a park bench onto his face...on the cement...he just rolled over and kept playing.

And..this is the good story and true purpose for the post...yesterday, we went jogging and then stopped at a park to play just for a few minutes. As we jogged up, we saw a squirrel (there are tons of them around) and Cam hopped right out and ran at the squirrel. What kid hasn't chased a squirrel, right? Of course, the squirrel scampered up a tree and I just let Cam run off and play. Didn't think anything of it. Tyler joined him and they were giggling and having tons of fun. No one cried. No one screamed. Then they both run off to play on the slide and other play stuff. About 10 minutes later, as I am looking at Cam, I thought "what is that all over his face?" I ran over to check, and yes, his whole face was totally scratched up! One side was even bleeding!! I frantically asked what happened and he said "Swuirrel! Swuirrel!" Ty came over and I asked him what happened and he said "A squirrel growled and Cam and then just jumped at him" Of course, I am totally dumbfounded. Did a squirrel really just attack my baby? Didn't they think to come and tell me? Not once did Cam even make a peep. I couldn't believe it. I still can't believe it.

So, to sum it all up, I am not positive, but it is pretty likely that Cam got attacked by a squirrel.

Or, to make it sound a little better, my helpless little child was ruthlessly mauled by a pack of ferocious hairy little beasts. (Does that sound good Nate and Kelly?)


  1. Haha, yes Rach, that will do :) Cam is a stud!

  2. Okay, your boys are hilarious. That's one hard-core little boy. Maybe he beat up the squirrel in return. Maybe?

  3. That is crazy!!! It's a funny story, and Cam is definitely a tough little guy... but I would maybe ask a doctor if you need to get him checked out for infections. I always get nervous when animals are involved. I seriously can't believe he was actually attacked by a squirrel!!! Wow!

  4. What a tough kid! He's totally fearless. I keep thinking, "like father, like son!" So Scotty, tell us again about the time you tried to 'fly' off the roof of your house... ;D

  5. Oh my goodness, sweet tough little Cam. That story is so crazy! I'm glad he's okay (it could've been worse?) but how strange that he wasn't that bothered!

  6. Haha! Candace, I don't think I know you, but I totally agree! When reading this all I could think of is that sounds exactly like Scott! Too funny!
