Dh and I were very ready for any changes having kids was going to have on our lives but as it turned out kids fit into our lives perfectly, hard to imagine what life was like without them now

I havent read the whole thread but when we had our twins we compromised. We still went out for lunch and dinner but went earlier, or picked more kid friendly places. The twins were 2 weeks old when they went on their first 1200km roadtrip just to get home from the hospital, 3 weeks old when they watched their Dad for the first time compete in a motorbike race and we took them camping at a remote cattle station when they were 8 weeks old and we drove across Australia (8000km) when they were 6 months old.
They were far from easy babies, both had servere reflux and are still shocking sleepers but we have run by the theory that we can be tired with non-sleeping grizzling babies at home or we can go out and be tired with non-sleeping babies. Generally the extra stimulation, the fresh air in the pram or the extra set of hands with friends was a blessing in disguise, the babies were happier so it made things easier. I also did have a strict routine when my babies were little, and would stick to it when we were out but would deviate it by letting them sleep whereever

I think I'm a lucky mum in that my son pretty much fits in with us as well. A few people thought we were nuts the other week for taking him (15months) to a movie night in the local vineyard. We got there an hour or so before the movie was due to start ... let him run around a bit, gave him some of our food to nibble on (he'd had dinner before we went) then heated his milk ... he was sound asleep as the movie was starting. stayed asleep for the whole movie too, transferred into the car asleep and ultimately into his bed without any fuss or bother.
I'm very lucky!
