A Pirate Boo Bear, A Witchy Mom, and Autism

For years I’ve been trying to help my son who has autism learn to handle going out into public places. To make it more fun and cool I started taking him to the Zoo and Mc Donalds (inside) with BOTH of us dressed up in our Halloween costumes. My older kids now adults think I’m silly because I dress up too, I respond, “What kind of a mom wouldn’t dress up with their son, even if he is 18 yrs old now 🙂 Life is too short not to have some fun.

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom & Dustin Attend A.S.G.O.’s “10th” Autism Walk!

(STRONG MOTHERS ALTERING AUTISM’S REALITY TOGETHER)

Wish I could say I had a nice time at the walk today, but unfortunately just before we left this morning, Dustin fell running out the door and after , complained about his back. But still wanted to go to the Autism Walk . He’s always so excited to see Ronald McDonald & of course get his picture with him . So We Came. We Saw. We Conquered. But our  stay consisted of only walking one lap. I had to bring my Boo Bear home, only instead took him to the ER. No worries. He’s relaxing with the help of the doctor.

Took him to McDonalds to eat before taking him to the hospital to see why his back was hurting. He’s still complaining, so better safe , than sorry . Amazing how a french fry can bring such a sweet smile to his face .So sick of this place.UGH!
Just another example of the things we endure for our special guys/girls (LOL)

This was from yesterday when we were waiting for the doctor to see Dustin at the hospital after the Autism Walk . (No , he didn’t get hurt at the walk) But shortly after , Dustin was treated for pulling a muscle in his back. He’s doing fine, but better to be safe than sorry .So hard to get him to “Slow” down . Especially when he’s so excited to see Ronald McDonald .

mini moment

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom shares a moment with her S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Sisters; a moment that most people take for granted,

but not if you’re a Mom who has a child, teen, or adult with Autism. I hope this gives some of my moms out there
who can relate to these videos  this message:” Hang in There. Be Patient. When you least expect it, EXPECT IT “
BIG, BIG HUGS!!

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom’s: “My Singing & Dancing Dustin :)

Had a great visit with our family, but I think Dustin was getting a little too excited the day he knew we were going home 🙂 (LOL) I caught him singing and dancing just in time too……Love you Sweetie !

    I don’t think he was happy about getting caught on video, but seeing him in this light and even more to see him have “any” type of reaction like embarrassment was, well ,  I’m sorry kinda cool for this mom 🙂  If your a mom like me that is walking in those shoes of Autism…..I’m certain you know what I mean 🙂 Isn’t he Adorable 🙂

BIG HUGS!

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom’s (OCT.) Mommy Time-Out Video: “P.O.A ? Guardianship ? The Alternative 101”

S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom
(Strong Mothers Altering Autism’s Reality Together)

I am so happy you are here to watch this month’s very informative video.I wanted to bring this to all of you last month, however, I injured my ankle and posted a different video in it’s place. Of course, also informative:) This month I really hope you will share this video with mothers living with autism and other developmental disabilities. I know you will not only find this video to be comforting, but it will certainly save you big dollars as well. So if that didn’t intrigue you….lets not wait another moment to find out what my alternatives are regarding a Power of Attorney or Guardianship, which is needed when your special child turns 18 years old.
S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom has found the “Alternative” just for YOU! Please don’t forget to share this 🙂

BIG BIG HUGS!
