At any family gathering Smudge gets very excited, and goes like a house on fire. She spins and dances and twirls from one activity to another with great energy and enthusiasm. Eventually she runs out of steam and just has to stop for a rest. Buppa is always ready to give her a quiet spot for just that.
Next it is Amma's turn to snuggle with the girl. By this time Smudge has her jammies on, and is quieting down for bed.
She's still my baby girl, and enjoys listening to Amma sing her a lullabye.
Ah, what sweet times.
