Welcome! For long time fans, this is the Cupcake blog you’ve been waiting for. For those who got here accidentally… well, hi. I’ll explain a little bit here.
Cupcake is my mighty girl. Born in May of 2010, she came into our lives like a tiny blonde hurricane and nothing has been the same since. Thank goodness! Cupcake is bright and funny and full of energy. She’s also autistic. This blog will cover her shenanigans, her triumphs and her challenges. Regular features you can expect will include the ever popular Cupcake Theology (in which she interprets the Sunday School lesson in her own special way), Cupcake Philosophy, and musings on raising a spectrum kiddo and a non-gender conformist.
Cupcake is what some folks would call a “tomboy” and what I call a “girl.” She’s no more “girly” in her ruffles and ribbons than when she proceeds to climb a tree in them. She’s into ballet and gymnastics and figure skating and next month gets to start her long awaited passion- hockey. She just had her first trip to the ER (and not her last, I’m sure) courtesy of a bonked noggin acquired in a tumble off the bed at Grandma’s. She’s rugged and daring, my little dainty flower…
Anyway, I chose the title because she sometimes struggles, but she always perseveres. She is brave and she is mighty and she will always, eventually, triumph.
Welcome to my girl.
