the honey badger.

One of the challenges of having a 4 year old who is as big and strong as Max, who also has a diagnosis of Autism, is that his little sister often gets pushed around. At one point, we referred to her as Max's human whack-a-mole.  It got to the point that we couldn't leave them in a room together without adult supervision.  And then something changed.  Now instead of thinking as Cameron as the potential target, we refer to her as "the honey badger".  If you haven't had the pleasure of viewing the honey badger video, take a moment.  You won't regret it:

As I was saying, all this time, Cameron has been stealthily laying in wait for the perfect opportunity to show her big brother just how strong she really is so she can return the favour of years of being bopped on the head and lay the smack down:

I should note, that less than 2 hours later, I came upstairs to find this:
Even a honey badger has to sleep sometimes.  Smart girl - keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.


  1. I think I dated a Honey Badger in high school.

  2. The one thing I don't worry about is Cameron being able to take care of herself is someone decides to get to "handsy" with her.

  3. HAHAHAHA Oh my goodness. I was tearing up during the part she lifted his pajama bottoms to pinch him on the feet! We need one of her in our house :) I have trawled playgrounds and preschools for someone like her so I can take Khaled there - but you have a resident Honey Badger.

    Seriously cute.
