"Don't Stress The Dentist Videos " : S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom's (SEPT.) Online Mommy Time-Out Video

Hello to all of my friends. This month I wanted to take you to a place none of us really like to go to. So........
             this month S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom shares with you how taking her teenage son (autistic) to the dentist is like. Please be sure to watch both videos so to understand specific things. PART 1 of 2 is an Introduction to what the second video will be about. A must see second video in addition will actually bring you right into the dentist chair with her son. Yep you just read that correctly ;) S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom hopes it will encourage and maybe inspire other S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms like herself. If there is anyone that would like to know more about the toothbrush S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom uses for her son, I've posted pictures of what they look like and a link you can go to if you want to order one. Otherwise, most health food stores do carry these type of toothbrushes. You can't miss a tooth with these toothbrushes Moms!

Remember, Don't Stress the Dentist. See you in PART 2 of 2 ;)

Below I've added TWO  Buttons. Just Click On each one to watch , well, lets just say not your typical trip to the dentist. I hope these videos help you in some way. Nevertheless, I personally know how difficult getting through EVERY day with a special person with autism is like. AND and I know how heart felt mothers like us are, never mind sometimes/most of the time feeling like no one understands. If you are feeling this way please know this one thing if you have one of those bad days........I'M Here ;) BIG HUGS from ME to you S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms! Take Care.

"Autism & Billiards Pictures? Why Not ?" :S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom shares Dustin's FIRST Time playing on their Pool Table

What a Wonderful day at our farm until we lost internet access on Dustin's computer because of a storm that came through. So in need of a back up plan I began looking for games/ crafts to play with Dustin. The computer is EVERYTHING don't you know? Well, we had recently bought a pool table to amuse us in our spare time,but not once thought our Dustin would play . My husband of course showed Dustin how to play, the idea of it anyway. I was amazed how much Dustin was interested in what his dad was trying to teach  him. We let Dustin set things up by himself shortly after.....I guess he found "Dustin's Pool Game" more intriguing ;) It didn't matter though, it was so very enlightning to watch our autistic son play a game of billards. I know it sounds absurd, but this isn't something we ever thought he would even go near, never mind enjoy playing. Just another example of how WE as the parents of children/teens/adults should NEVER under estimate what they are able to accomplish.

I've posted some pictures of  Dustin being taught how to play billards by his Dad. If you would like to see the video of our Dustin in action just click on the interactive picture below ;)

Until Next Time......Take Care! S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom
