We had a nice time , but sadly Ronald McDonald didn't make it to the event this year,
unlike the ones before. I tried to find other things for Boo to find an interest, but other than the jumping castle, Boo was clearly not having a good time this year. I think it would have been fine if this year had been like the others ,but it was not. I figured I'd let him jump for a bit to help him get in a better mood. But I guess that changed too. Dustin ,like many other autistics is very sensory needy. To be aloud to jump for 3 mins and than stop, sorry that just wasn't enough time. In addition, in the past Boo Bear was aloud to jump not only longer, but was also aloud to crash in a lying down position before jumping again. This year when he immediately did it , he was told to stop. Not hearing , I had to tell him he couldn't lay down, only jump. OMG! You could just see how I completely ruined the moment. He was so puzzled and even more bummed. I love A.S.G.O. and always will, but for the distance we drove ,the money that was spent, I'm just not sure this is for us anymore. At Least the walk. Being a mother of a son with autism, well I make sure I donate, but I also have to consider his needs and well-being too. I did post some pictures, sorry there wasn't more to show . But I had to go somewhere else that I knew would make Dustin's day. I know how to make my son "Smile".
So, enjoy the pics and I sure hope that all of my S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms will join me for July's Online Mommy Time-Out at the Zoo July 19 or Animal Kingdom July 28.
