Being A Cupcake Can Help Self Esteem!

Well, it’s true and I will tell you why! I have a new friend and her name is Mary Kate and she is fifteen years old. Mary Kate uses a wheelchair just like I do. Her mom is very smart because she knew that the other kids were getting dressed in costumes at school and she wanted Mary Kate to be included in the group.

So guess what she did? She made a costume for Mary Kate that went all around her wheelchair and looked like a cupcake. She made a hat for Mary Kate that looked like the frosting on the cupcake. Mary Kate looked just adorable! Maybe almost as adorable as I am!

I think it is so awesome that some parents are so proud of their kids and what they are accomplishing, even if they have disabilities! Mary Kate’s mom is the kind of mom that all special needs kids should have!

I love Mary Kate and her mom and I bet you do too! Are they way cool or what? I might just want to be a cupcake next Halloween too… but a boy cupcake with blue frosting!

Kids Can Be Smarter Than Adults!

I am so excited because I am helping kids and parents who have disabled people or animals in their lives! Guess why?

Look at this picture. It’s a picture that one of my new friends drew of herself, her friend and yours truly! I am just adorable even in this picture. Don’t you agree?

See how the girl and the Mom are so happy that they are with me? Well, they are ‘cuz they know how cool I am. I am the one with the wheels in case you didn’t know that!

Yeehawh! Pass it on! Okay?
