If you know me at all, you know that I hate (with a passion) bugs. But, for some reason, this little green guy didn’t bother me at all. He came in on Justin’s neck and must have gotten there by falling off a tree. I didn’t touch him, but I did find myself thinking of how cute he was. Maisie adored him and he became her little play buddy for a couple hours until she freed him on a weed growing in the cracks of the mostly pavement city we live in.

Is he cute or what? I think I could handle this bug because he didn’t have long antennas or long legs and he wasn’t trying to turn into a disgusting moth that would get into my food or clothes. If there are any tricks to getting over antennas and long legs, please help. I am in desperate need of getting over my bug phobia, especially when we get the occasional cockroach or crazy long legged centipede! Ew!

    Avery wanted me to tell you that it turns into a moth. It’s call an inchworm. She had one as well and it died in its cacoon when Avery was trying to provide it a safe place to change. They are cute little fellas tho!

    That is just the cutest little bug ever!!! I love that it was Maisie’s little playmate for a day.
