How often do your kids spend the night with someone else?

Until last night, Ki hadn't done it since January. Before that, when my brother wasn't there, she had a once weekly overnight at her mamaw's house. They both loved it.
She won't be home until noon. :-( I know she's having fun, but I miss my Midge!

  • With MY mother a couple times a week or more, my oldest spends the night at a friend's house if I know the parents well maybe every other month. They don't spend the night with my in laws that I don't trust to watch them nearly as close or well as my mom does. Thank goodness for moms!!!!!!

  • Never! Seriously! We have never left our children at anyone's house overnight. We have left them for a few hours for the occasional date, but we've otherwise been with them everyday since they were born 8 1/2 and 6 1/2 years ago! And all of our vacations have been taken together as a family. :o)

  • There is no timed schedule. The last time was when my DH was at drill, and I had to go out of town as well for a wedding. She stayed with my parents. That was in May. Before that, it was October for a beach trip.

  • 2X a year. Each visit with his Aunt and Uncle is for the weekend Friday night to Sunday Noon. Its the only break DH and I get we don't hire teenagers to watch him so we can go to a movie or out to dinner just the 2 of us. He has a form of autism so we can't  leave him with just anyone. SIL is very good about his behaviors and his medications. Plus he LOVES going there !!

  • Never. Well, once when my oldest was three, he slept over at my sister's house. Other than that, never. My oldest is 8 and my youngest will be 5 on Tuesday.

  • My son stays over with family often. His dad and I are divorced so he is suposed to see his dad every other weekend. His dad usually doesn't come to see him so my ex mother-in-law keeps him on those weekends. My son loves it but I still have a hard time with my son being gone. We have been divorced for 6 years so you would think i'd be use to it by now, but I still don't like it.
