I am a Dad before I am a Daddy blogger

I am a Dad before I am a Daddy blogger.

Just because we have a blog, does not mean we are special.
I am no different from any other Dads out there.

Singapore Family activities

Common scenarios faced by parents πŸ™‚
We still have our bangwall moments, especially when kids challenge us or simply ignore our instructions :p
My weekends are busier than weekdays (YES, working is easier than running a family)
I wish I can afford an afternoon nap, but I would not sacrifice an opportunity to have fun with the family.

I do not represent active parenting and neither am I a voice for happy parenting.
We just happen to share our family activities more frequently online, sometimes our voices are amplified.

So, can blogging helps with family bonding? I will definitely shout YES!

** The days are long, and the years are short **
Mon to Fri, work can be tiring, I just want to talk and play with the kids when I reach home.
Ask how they have been coping in school, new friends, new sports.

Kids are growing up fast, and they are no longer eager to join family outings.
Weekends are stretched between family bonding and school activities.

Every opportunity to bond with the kids and family is precious.
Family moments are sometimes crafted over media-events, another opportunity to bond together πŸ™‚

When we look back at fond episodes on our blog and Instagram, it brings back good memories.

** Work hard, play hard! **

Recently, I have begun to engage the kids in sports, to live a healthy lifestyle.
They are playing soccer, basketball in school, and I needed to catch up with their stamina.

Follow our cycling and jogging pursuits.
I pickup hiking recently, and even adopted an Olive backed sunbird along our corridor!

(Fast forward two weeks from video, we got two chicks in nest hooray!)

As long as we enjoy doing some activities together, keep on engaging the kids.

Our blog has two objectives, Bring everyone Fun, and document the kids’ childhood.
Blogging is killing two birds with one stone.

When my arms and calves are tired, I know I am getting older packing too much activities πŸ™‚

** No regrets **

I always nag to the kids.
Live life to the fullest, leave no regrets behind.
Go out and venture, experience, enjoy your life.

I am a contented man, with a loving and supportive wife and a brood of happy-go-lucky kids.
Together, we bring warmth to our big family.
