Music Monday! My Little Buttercup

4 years ago
What a whirlwind of a weekend we had.

It was the weekend of my daughters graduation, in this post she will be known as Little Buttercup, as that a pet name her daddy used since she was born.

Let me tell you, she busted a$$ and graduated. 
She finished a semester early, with High Honors to boot, and a designated NC Scholar! (meaning she achieved excellent grades in several honors and AP classes)

We could hardly believe this is our Little Buttercup!

Daddy used to sing My Little Buttercup to her since she was a tiny baby, trying to make her laugh. He would get through the song with no response. Then he sang it from the point when everyone joined in, imitating the Mexican response. The giggles came fast and hard when he got to this:
My Little Buttercup has the sweetest.....'eh-smile?'

She actually remembers her daddy singing this song, and giggling to it, but never knew, until now, where it came from.
And she STILL laughs only when it gets to the 'eh-smile'.

So will you eh-smile with us for...'a while..a while...'?

She will always be daddy's little buttercup.
But now she is going into that big bad world, no doubt looking for 

....where the moonbeams paint the sky....

She has the creativity, and determination, to find it, too. 
Good Luck my Little Buttercup.
