    Never. Not even once a year for our anniversary.

    DD has gone to my mums for a sleepover twice, but DS always stays behind. And wakes every few hours even now at 2.5 yrs. So we don't get much couple time.

    I'm unhealthily jealous of people who get nights away with their other half. But that's okay, I have hope for future improvements...

    Since DS was born 8 months ago we have had one night out on a date. I already feel like we rely on relatives too much with babysitting while we are at work.

    Three weeks ago we went to a concert together.
    In March we went to a wedding child free and stayed in a hotel over night.
    The kids are being baby sat this weekend so we'll have from mid morning sat until late afternoon Sun together.
    I think before that it was November, before that September/Oct.
    I don't know when it will be next but we are having a week together next July with no children!
    But my youngest is three at the end of the year. When we had breastfeeding babies we didn't do anything. When I was pregnant with our 3rd we went out for dinner together and that was our first date in over 2 years, we were also home at 8pm.
    But every Friday night is date night in our house. Kids go to bed, we order something truly yummy in and ignore the housework and whatever else might need to be done and just spend a couple of hours together catching up on our week. It's our favourite part of the week and we both look forward to it so much!

    None.Hes in the ADF and all our family is interstate and I wouldnt want to leave my kids with our friends here as they all have their own kids or are single and dont have child experience and my 3 year old is a handful.

    Only time we've had time away from the kids is for a wedding and we worked it. (Im a photographer and he assisted me for the day)

    Hopefully moving closer to family at the end of the year and we will finally have some time

    We have one 16 month old son and we usually get one of the sets of grandparents to babysit once every 2 or 3 weeks. We usually go to town for dinner by ourselves or with a group of friends or go to dinner & movies. We love it and the grandparents crave babysitting so it's win win! I think it's very healthy for every couple to have a child free night at least once a month
