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



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 .

“An Autism Nickelodeon Christmas”

Happy Holidays Everyone!
Thanks so much for joining me for this months very special
Holiday Video. As you all know, Dustin is a huge Nickelodeon Fan! And as a part of his Graduation and 18th Birthday Present this year Dustin was given the opportunity to visit a place we just knew he would love.
We have been A.S.G.O. members for about 17 years now and because of Donna , her son Drew (autistic), and her wonderful support and team; I have been able to venture out with my son with autism , venture in to theme parks no less… and with all of the other families like mine there too; I never feel alone. So , Donna , I know you hear this all of the time…. But Dustin & I would like to Thank You with all of our Heart.
We also would like to say Thank You to the Nickelodeon Hotel. Everyone there was so unbelievably kind and understanding to us. We intend on going back for Dustin’s 19th Birthday not only because Dustin loves Nickelodeon, but because Autism is clearly Welcomed here 🙂
So For Now, Merry Christmas & Enjoy “An Autism Nickelodeon Christmas!” BIG HUGS!!

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

(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 🙂
