Nothing to do with the religious monks…
Monks, short for monkey, is one the many nicknames your father came up with and the one that stuck around the longest.
I have a notoriously bad memory and wanted a way to document the important events in your life before they were forgotten from the world. Your father decided it would be a good idea for me to start a blog and share it with the world.
So…here I am, learning how the blog world works. My hope? When you are old enough to read this, you will not hate us for sharing every detail of your life. Just know, we only did it because… we love you?
