"Autism & LOST TOY TAG Video" :S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's September "Online Mommy Time-Out" Video

Hello S.M.A.A.R.T. Moms!

Today I want to talk to you about my son's favorite toy/friend, Bugs Bunny. Boo Bear takes him everywhere. If you have watched in my past events and pictures you'll notice that Bugs is in every picture and video:) Well , one morning when we were getting ready to go on one of our outings. Dustin came to me in a panic......He yelled out to me " Where's Bugs?!"  I couldn't believe he was missing. This has never happend before Boo holds on to him tight. But sure enough he was missing. So needless to say the rest of the day was just miserable for us all. Poor Boo Bear was crushed. We managed to get through the day by doing crafts and playing games to detour his thoughts of Bugs. Finally we got through the day without any major melt-downs and Boo went off to bed hoping Bugs would turn up.
Someone was obviously watching out for our Dustin, because Bugs did turn up.......So, it was right then and there I decided to make sure this never happens again, not if I can help it:) So I began thinking outside the box and came up with "LOST TOY TAGS."
I made up a variety of tags to fit other favorite toys he had. I designed them to be able to put ANY  child's name on the tag as well as a contact phone number so that the toy can be returned if found by someone. I specified the toy tag to belong to a child with autism; however, having other friends with children who aren't autistic and for my friends who love their pets.......I decided to make LOST TOY TAGS for them too. I have created my own, but maybe you might be able to come up with a similar idea. If not you can click on the Lost Toy Tag Link  below so you can see if the lost toy tag is something you may need in the future. Oh and I did post a photo of Bugs Bunny wearing his Lost Toy Tag Shirt, which by the way Dustin always puts it on his Bugs now before we go on our outings:) Also, if you would like to watch the September Mommy Time-Out Online Video; just "Click On" the Bugs Bunny Photo.
I really hope this helps you like it has for us. Until  Next Time, Take Care. Angela

P.S. There won't be an October Mommy Time-Out Online Video, but I would love for you to join us for Halloween at the Boo Bash. Contact me for further details if you would like to come. We always have a really nice time:)
