Hardly ever, since we live interstate from both our families.
Occasionally a friend will babysit so we can go to an event.
Although, we take every opportunity to have couple time when visiting family and will go out a couple of times a week if we can.

If we had more family then yes it would be easier but it is a lot to ask of my parents when they already have 1 of my children 3 days a week.

Once a fortnight.
We see the in laws once a fortnight for the weekend which we stay friday til sunday, on the Saturday night, Nan and Pop get some quality time with DS then DF and I will go to dinner and a movie, we never go out for the whole night.
I think with PND having that break with DF is a need rather than a want for myself.

Well we both work so every day.. but we have other responsibilities in that time, its not really "me" time or anything like that. In terms of getting alone time and a babysitter, never. We have nobody to babysit for us anymore. I'm not really fazed for stuff like having a night off. We make the most of the evenings when the kids are in bed early to watch movies and eat Tim tams however for days/afternoons when I have a million errands to run, or phonecalls or shopping I would LOVE time without the kids occasionally. Today I picked the kids up from daycare after work, went and juggled them and a bunch of paperwork, dd climbed on my head and up my shirt while I did the grocery shopping and now its dark already and I could have got through it so much quicker without them.

DS is 21 months old and DH and I have been out 3 times at night without him. Each of those times he's stayed with my parents who live over 1 hour away. Other than that, we don't have any family close by. I'm a little jealous of those that do!

We've not had a night away child-free for over six years ... a dinner out around once a year.
We're going to a fundraising ball in a few weeks, booked my parents a few months ago to come up and stay to watch the children. I'm so looking forward to a eating a meal out at a place that doesn't have a playground!

We have a lunch date every monday while DS is at daycare.
Every 6 weeks or so we get one of our parents to babysit so we can do dinner and a movie.
DS has also had 5 or 6 full nights away from us with our parents for weddings etc.
We have also taken my 17 year old sister on holidays with us so we can have a few nights out.

I nearly said never, then I remembered one time. It was while I was in labour with dd2! Does that count? Oh, also when pregnant with dd2, I had some complications and we left dd1 with her pa while dh took me to hospital.
I'd love a date night with my dh. Even just once a month or something. So not going to happen though.
