Wow, has it been 8 years already?
8 years ago this week, we started our cheekiemonkie blog and quite frankly, we never expected it to last this long. But it has truly been an exhilarating ride and we are honoured that to have you readers along for the journey.
The wifey had actually first started this blog as a means to document the growing years of our children. You may want to read her very first entry HERE about the impending arrival of Ash.
Yes, that's Ash at 1 week old by the way.
When the wifey went back to work after her maternity leave ended, I took over the reins and have been chronicling my Fatherhood journey ever since then. I remember the time I was ecstatic when my daily readership breached the double-digit mark for the first time. We have certainly come a long way since then, and I am very grateful for all the opportunities that the blog has brought us all these while.
Thankfully for me, the passion of blogging has not diminished. Not when the 2 boys are now fond of making this blog their fave bedtime reading material. They find great joy in reading up the past activities that we have done together when they were young so in a way, the blog has been instrumental in preserving these dear memories for our family.
This year, I reckon I will let my 2 boys try their hand at blogging as well. If anything, I believe it will do wonders for their composition writing in school! Heh.
At the end of the day, our blog mantra still holds - we enjoy discovering new, fun, and kids-friendly places in Singapore together as a family. And of course, the occasional overseas trips too if the travel bug bites!
Thanks once again, for supporting us all these time and here's to more 8 years ahead!
