    Default Re: how often do you go out and leave the kids with someone?

    Probably once a week. Not as much now as I'm pregnant and CBFed doing anything. But usually around once a week/fortnight, and DS has a sleepover at his nan's every couple of months. We take that opportunity to sleep in, have morning s€x, and have leisurely breakfast out at a cafe. And snigger at all the poor parents in the cafe with their kids in tow who have to break up fights and bolt their food down as fast as possible

    Default how often do you go out and leave the kids with someone?

    Used to be once every month or two. Now we have moved states and know no one and I won't leave DD with just any babysitter so don't see it happening anytime soon. I do miss the time alone with DH though and the full nights sleep. But usually woke up and wanted to get DD first thing the next morning because I missed her.

    Haha this made me laugh, mil lives 3 minutes away but I would NEVER leave my child with her, she's nuts and I don't trust her.
    I don't miss it, DH and I will just hang out when DD is asleep, but we're home bodies so we actually like to stay home :-)

    Go?....Out?

    DP and I are homebodies. DS spends a few days at his dads every 3rd week so DP and I may go out for dinner or something on one of those days but rarely. We are happier at home.

I would find it very difficult without family support.

    Probably once a week? Or at least once a fortnight! We are lucky to have both sets of parents, sisters and really good friends who are all willing and able to have both of the kids. Usually that will sleepover so we can actually make the most of our night out Love it! Last week we went into the city to a fancy restaurant with friends, then to some clubs and came stumbling home at 3.30am lol! Next week we are going to Melbourne Cup (in Brisbane haha) - Can't wait!!! Love my kid-free time!

    Once in the past 3years, it was for 7hrs to go to a wedding. It doesnt bother me, I dont trust just anyone with my kids and our families live interstate.

    Don't hate me but our daughter goes to her grandparents house every single Friday night for a sleep over. She looks forward to it, as do they and its great to have a night off every week. We're very lucky!!

    My mum has a standing offer to mind DS every Saturday night but we probably only take her up on it once s month these days ! We are very lucky to have my parents a few doors up and my sister is currently living with us and DH sisters are about 5 minutes away so plenty of baby sitters

    yeah pretty often.

    My Mum lives about an hr away, so if we want to go somewhere she will usually have DD overnight. DD LOVES going to Grandma's, and Grandma adores her ... so even if we havent anything planned, Grandma does the planning

    My 2 sisters also live close enough to have her, as well as now she is old enough to have sleepovers at friends so that has started too.

    Its awesome.

    I do miss her in the morning ... but its nice to have some time just for us. And she misses me so I get extra cuddles when she gets home
