How often?

I was just curious how often you go out without your kids. Like either for a girls night or a date night with your husband. Usually our daughter goes with us everywhere but maybe once a month or every two months...we get out for a date night. I never get out with the girls (for one, everyone settled where they went to college at but me, so most of my friends live out of state).

  • Right now every week I have a day out. It;s to go to prenatal appointments...but it's going out without the little one! Lol. We go out on dates maybe once every 3 months or so and I never have a girls night b.c. there are no girls around here to go out with. =) But, I usually don't mind too much. I love spending time with my son.

  • We can go out a lot more than we do, but we go out like once a month..and its just like dinner and a movie...and its because if i offer to take my niece for a night, my brother and SIL will take my two lil ones for a night. We kinda trade off lol.

  • These answers are FUNNY!!!
    I totally understand because when our kids were little we never went anywhere without them. Now that they are older tweenagers, they don't want to go anywhere with us (I guess we're un-cool-LOL)
    My big day out with the girls included shopping at Trader Joes and one of the GF's had to bring her 7 year old. It did stink that we had to watch our language but the little girl is a doll!!!

  • I guess I'm lucky. My husband works days, I'm basically a SAHM. I work, but it's just an on-call deal. I get to go out every couple weeks. Whenever I feel stressed out. I typically don't drink, but it's just nice to go out with my girl and relax. It's important to make that time for yourself. I'm buying a bike soon so that I can go riding every night or at least every other, on the path by our house. By the time I get back from going anywhere without the kids, I have missed them and can't wait to see them. If I'm cooped up all day with them without a break, I start going nutso! I love them, I love being with them, but mama needs a break too.
