  • Just about never. In the last 6 years we've gone out twice on "dates". We went to a movie in 2004 for my husband's birthday while we were visiting his family in another state. Then my dad said he'd watch the kids for a few hours on our 9th anniversary in 2009 and we went to dinner and a movie.
    That was the last time we were on a date (a year and a half ago). Any other time we've been out alone we've been running errands (shopping and stuff). We are almost never without at least 1 of the kids and after we move away from my dad and have our last baby we won't get another chance until he/she starts kindergarten (in 5 years). We plan to go out and have a nice dinner the night before my c-section (in 3 weeks)...our last date for the next 5 years.

  • Once every few months. We love to see live music & get grumpy if we miss something good. So, we make arrangments when we see a good show coming up. DH is a BLAST to go out with, we have so much fun together!

  • Not very often, he is working alot right now. During the cooler months we try to go out about once a month (the kids spend the night at grandparents).

  • When our kids were young, it was once in a blue moon. We have teenagers now and with that comes freedom. We don't do much in the winter but in the summer, we go out a lot. We go for walks, rides on my dh's motorcycle, dinner, movies, friends.

  • Me and the SO go out on dates at least once or twice a month, usually when the kids are at their bio dads. And it also depends on if we have the money or not.

  • Hardly ever since the baby was born and I miss it like crazy. We did get out last week for a couple hours and it was great but we talked about the baby all night lol.

  • Once every couple of weeks without kids. But I'm due in July with our 5th, so I imagine that will curtail at least for a few months.
