TackleNappy's final episode for 2012. If you didn't catch our Christmas special, here's what you missed.
Gusty winds dampen to but a breath, pouring rain fades to nothing but a light mist, the clouds whisk away like a flock of seagulls infiltrated by a hungry fox, butterfly's flutter carefree and birds sing songs more beautiful than any song heard before. A single ray of light, heavenly from above, lights up the virtual hands of Bucky as if a million suns shone together as one. Lee reaches out and receives something more valuable than gold to a poor man, more important than water to a man who has lost his way in the desert, something more beautiful than the site of land to a sailor lost at sea. Lee receives the interview questions. He looks at Bucky and pauses. After considering his words for some time, remarks "About fuckin' time".
I'm here with Lee, father to half dozen, father figure to many, but the only man in the world to ever be crowned TackleNappy's Dad of the Year.
It won't be long before Q and I welcome Kid C to the clan. D-day is quickly approaching with Q due in 6-7 weeks and I can't say that we're even close to being prepared. We haven't set up the nursery (where the heck is the bassinet?), we haven't decided on names - not even a shortlist, we don't have any bags packed, we're not even sure whether we can fit three kids in our car. We've really taken this pregnancy very casually though I do have concerns, I'll admit that.
I'm here sharing a coke with friend and father of two Ralph, talking family, Autism, cattle and Billy Pinnell.
Big Guy, tell us about your family.
How do you explain Aspergers and High Functioning Autism to someone who is not familiar with the conditions?
Best put simply, Autism is a spectrum of neurological disorders involving communication, social functioning and sensory issues, and Aspergers is at the Higher functioning end of that spectrum or "It's like that Sheldon guy from Big Bang Theory"
