I couldn’t open the package fast enough for Cameron. He was trembling he wanted the surprises so much. He received a book called Boo Hoo Bird and it has the most vibrant illustrations I’ve seen in a children’s book. The book is also very appropriate since Cameron did bonk his little head, just like Bird in the story. We had ourselves a giggle at the end when it happened all over again, just like Cameron. I had to laugh at the very beginning, Tanya, because there was a raccoon that was the first to help Bird, and we know how much Tanya loves, loves, loves raccoons. LOL Cameron also got this really cool toy called Milk and Cookies where you put colored cookies into the cookie jar. When its time for the cookies to come out, Cameron can dump the jar and a moo sound occurs – very, very cute!
There was two very cute little notes in there from Zack telling Cameron he hopes he feels better, sorry about his boo boo, and that he has the same toy so he knows Cameron will like it. Ah! Zack is the coolest little 2 year old I know. :D Thank you so much, Zack!!! You are a dear sweet boy! I wish I could just hug you!!!
I said at the beginning that “me too!” received a gift and I physically didn’t get a gift. In fact, I received something better than a material possession. I received continual friendship, kindness, understanding and compassion from a wonderful soul and mother herself. Tanya, you have no earthly idea what this means to me that you and little Zack felt enough to send Cameron along a couple gifts. It did distract Cameron and I think it made me feel better than it did him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget this day.
Since we're on the subject of Cameron, here are a few photos of his eye 2-days after his accident. There is some progress. The swelling has subsided, but it's a bit puffy and getting more discolored by the day. He checks himself out in the mirror from time to time. Where he had bled that has now scabbed over.
Cameron and I are off to Mom's house. Cameron's great-grandma and great-grandpa and Uncle Jimmy are here visiting so we're going to go spend some time with them this afternoon. They arrived Wednesday from Arkansas. I do have other things to share, but I'll save that for another time.
