When we go to work.

My kids go to their grandparents for a sleepover every 4-6 weeks
They also go to bed early so we get some time to ourselves in the evenings. But DH works in the mines anyway, so he's not home half the time.

Never until she went to school at 5.5 years of age.

About twice a month dd has sleep over at nani's (my mum) they have a really close relationship she is the first grandchild on both sides and very loved and spoil by the family. Dp's family lives in nz but if they were here they'd want her all the time too. When they are here I feel so lazy because granny does everything with her, gets up to her every morning so we can sleep in. We are very lucky to have such a close knit supportive family!

We have had about 6 nights together when the children have stayed at MIL & FIL's.. Thats since dd1 was born almost 6 yrs ago..
Occasionally during the week DHs days off will clash with dd2 and DS's daycare mornings so we will get a couple of hours together before we pick them up at 12.30.
Otherwise, he works about 60 hours a week where he is away from the 3 of them (and me) and I have 6 hours a week without them (daycare).

Once every few months. I get time off to myself regularly though. I go to the gym 4 times a week while DH stays home with DD and go out for dinner with my girlfriends once a month. I need to organise us another date night soon. I do miss time with just DH and I.

Never. Pretty much, anyway.
In 6 years of parenting, we have gone out, child free, just 3 times.
For our first wedding anniversary in 2007.
A friends going away dinner in 2009.
A friends wedding in 2011.
Can't wait until our children are grown so we can enjoy all the adult time we've put on hold!

Not very often at all and that is ok! Ds1 is 4 and we have had 2 nights out just the two of us since he was born but have been home by midnight. I have had a few girls nights out but always get home at midnight. I have only 1 person thats ever babysit my children, I wouldn't just leave them with anyone. We don't have family nearby but on our trips to Perth we will sometimes leave the kids with either mil or sil for a few hours if we have appointments or something but that's the extent of it. Dh and I utilise the time when kids are in bed as our quality time otherwise our kids go practically everywhere we do. We could never go on a holiday without them, it just wouldn't feel right to us
