Save. Spend. Splurge.

If Little Bun had a Biography…..

I was chatting with a colleague the other day about Little Bun, and I don’t know how it came up but I suggested she take him for a few years to give me a break.

She told me he sounded like a lot of mental and physical work compared to her son (she has one of her own), and then I started trying to market Little Bun’s best qualities to her, which turned into a very funny conversation:

Little Bun (also answers to “Baby”)

Weight: Too heavy to carry, that’s for sure

Height: Too tall to sleep on you at night, but he tries anyway

Looks: Very cute especially when sleeping but does not like being called ‘cute’
