Hi everyone! It’s me…Smudge. Smudgemeister. Smudge-a-roo. The Smudge Man.
Did you like those? Those are all nicknames mom and dad have given me since I came to live here one year ago today!
Hey, Smudge! Smudge!
Uh, yes, Mayzie?
You left out my favoritest name that mom calls you: Smudge Pants!
Oh, haha. Yeah, um, so I wasn’t going to tell them that one.
Well, it’s a little embarrassing, you know.
Oh, gosh, I think Smudgie Wudgems is WAY worse.
Okay, wow…thanks for helping me out, Mayzie.
Anytime, Smudge Pants.
Anyway, as I was saying, it’s been one whole year since I left my old job at HemoSolutions and moved in with my new family. And, well, I just couldn’t be happier.
Oh, sure…there have been some bumps along the way. And by bumps, I mean REAL bumps! Remember when I had chin acne?
Which meant I had to go visit my nice skin doctor lady about 87 million times. (But that was really okay cuz she gives the BEST massages.)
And then I broke out in hives from some of the medicines.
And oh, yeah…I also found out I have ass-muh and they shaved me half-bald to do that skin test on me to see what I’m allergic to.
But honest…the good has outweighed all of that stuff by a LOT!
I have pawsome siblings to hang out with.
Even Queen Abby is starting to warm up to me.
I have fun toys to play with…
and cuddle with.
I’ve learned how to use the computer to help dad play his games…
and to watch movies…
and to blog…
and to just generally surf the web. (Pinterest is addicting!)
I have a great window to look out of…
and my very own tent…
and the Smudge-tastic-mobile.
And best of all, I know that I’m loved to the ends of the earth and back. (That’s what my mom says, and between you and me, that’s why I let her call me Smudge Pants whenever she wants.)
Yep, adopting my family was a pretty good decision on my part.
So Happy Gotcha Day to…
