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.

A S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom Mini-Moment :)

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 (FEB) 2014′ Online Mommy Time-Out Video: “An Unexpected Circus Surprise!”

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

This Month:
“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!
