What job is 24hrs, 7 days a week, requiring you to be on your feet, with no sick days or sabbaticals? Welcome to parenthood! And it's alternately the most rewarding and frustrating job on Earth.
Full Time Baby's Mission
We provide well researched, evidence based Tips, Hacks, and Gear Guides to get you through the greatest journey in the world.
- Digital nomads that have traveled to over 60 countries around the world
- Trilingual, tricultural, and raising our kids as such (at minimum)
- Special needs parents to a child with Down Syndrome, a congenital heart defect, and hearing loss
So they say you can't have it all. But like most people, we still try. We want that high flying career, the immaculate house (well, if only on the outside), the 2.5 kids, 2 cars, maybe even a dog. Totally not ready for the responsibility of a pet though.
At home our names are Mom and Dad, but in another life we're Ron and Li. Li's big dream is to have 8 hours of sleep, spend quality family time, and still be fulfilled working, all while maintaining the insane image of an ideal mother. Ron's dream is similar, to be a super hands on Dad even while running a business, though a little less sleep is fine. Then we hit reality. There are only 24 hours in a day after all.
As a team, we wanted to spend our most precious asset, which is time, with our kids. Because it's not long before they become snarling teenagers and even with those monstrous tantrums, they're still just so tiny and vulnerable. We get to watch our little people discover everything for the first time, and it inspires us and breathes life into us.
So we left corporate jobs and embarked on a journey of "lifestyle design", where the plan is to work flexible jobs that allow us to juggle our work and babies. In the meantime aside from giving kids quality time, we'll try to keep it fresh. Mommy and Daddy have been to a total of 58 countries already, which we plan to still add to. The kids have no choice but to join this digital nomad journey, while we try to raise trilingual citizens of the world.
Even with both parents actively engaged parenting, we've found that we've needed alot of help along the way. We've built this site as a resource, a community, and a collection of Moms and Dads coming together who are just trying to make it work.
"Do you work full time now?" Our friends ask, usually directing the query at Mommy. Well, yes. And then some.
