Friday Fun!

Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun! Holiday preparations are in full swing around here, and there is really a lot expected of me. I had to babysit…

So that Mommy and Daddy could make about a million pierogies…

I had to build an entire house AND decorate it…

And yet everybody gets all excited when all this guy does is eat…

And bang stuff together…

And stand up.

What do I have to do to get some attention around here? Backflips?!?!

If you want to see more photos of me behind-the-scenes of life in the Cupcakes & Kale Chips house and kitchen, follow Mommy on Instagram.

And Mommy wants me to remind you about your chance to win one of TWO $250 Amazon gift cards
