Baby Girl and Valentine’s Past

I have an announcement to make…

My adorable 9 year old daughter has decided that she would like to be referred to here on Butterscotch Lady by her nickname, “Baby Girl”.  I have called her this for as long as I can remember.  I think it started when I would tell her that no matter how old she was she would always be my baby girl.  I kind of thought she would “outgrow” the nickname.  I was even expecting the “Mommy, we have to talk…” discussion where she tells me that she is way too old be called such a babyish name, especially at school-in front of friends!  But, alas, I guess she loves this nickname as much as I love whispering to her, “I love you Baby Girl, forever and always to the moon and back”.


Last year Baby Girl started a small tradition with a few close friends.  She invited the girls and their American Girl Dolls to a Valentine’s Tea Party.

All set and ready for tea!

Tea sandwiches and my dear friend P.R.’s divine jam tarts.

Who doesn’t love a party favor?

This black dresser was a $15 garage sale find that I refinished and added new hardware.

Baby Girl and I went to Paper Source (Thanks for the gift card Miss N.!) today to pick up a few things for next week’s Valentine Hot Cocoa & Cupcake Party.  It will be a busy week preparing!   I have to admit, I am LOVING that Baby Girl likes to entertain as much as I do!

Until next time,

Butterscotch Lady

(The hubby and son are still undecided about their Blog monikers.  Any suggestions?)

    Paul: Hubba Hubba
    Grant: Gwumpy 😉

    I like Nicole’s name for Paul (or “Cabana Boy,” as many of us affectionately call him during your parties!). Maybe “#1 Son” or “G-Man” for Grant?

    Everything looks lovely! What a special Valentine’s tradition. ❤ Glad the holiday gift came in handy!!

  6. You are so creative! What is inside your goodie bags?

    • Everything inside of the goodie bags came from Michael’s dollar bins. There was a notebook, ring, coasters and a mirror compact. They were all part of the same vintage looking collection. The girls LOVED the oversized rings!
