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.

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!

“A Valentine’s Day That Brings “Good” Cries. What an Unexpected Circus Surprise!”
Welcome Back S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms!
This month once again I want to share with you a very special moment with all of you.
I hope to inspire and encourage you to at least TRY and take your loved one with autism out in to “Public” places. As a mom myself who has a son who is almost 18 yrs. old with autism , I know first hand how difficult this can be. I know that it is much easier to “Isolate” ourselves from going in to public places because of the misguided people, the stares, and especially the fear of a melt-down occurring. It doesn’t have to be this way. Moms & Dads I want to help you live your life again. There isn’t an Anchor attached to Autism. There are alternatives. I hope that with the videos I create solely for those families walking in my shoes….I hope it will help you in some way, to lift you up, to give you a positive outlook on autism, or at the very least bring a Smile to your day.
Be Strong , Be Patient, & KNOW you always have a Friend called S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom 🙂
BIG HUGS & Take Care!
