Ann has started her own blog, focusing on Gregory, who is on the spectrum for autism. G-man is, thank God, extremely communicative and affectionate, and as this video shows, he loves to be tickled. This is one of Ann’s favorite videos, and she figured out how to put it on her sidebar. The “Dugga Dugga” game, as Gregory calls it, sends him into hysterics, and has been used to transition him from frustration elsewhere a number of times.
Given our schedule, especially with the time I spend in the field, times like this are special. Our children do inspire us, and they make the challenges the business sometimes pose more bearable. There are things I never would have done as a single guy that I embrace as a dad. But embracing Gregory tops it all.
