I don't have good time out unless SO is watching DS. Anyone else?

When SO n I go on a date my mom or his mom take care of him. I worry throught the nite. But most importantly abou getting home before 1) he has to go to sleep (cuz my mom struggles) 2) it gets late cuz my in-laws prefer to watch him at their house.
The only time I can relax is when I go out w my friends n SO is watching DS. Anyone else feel this way? SO is upset we don't enjoy ourselves.

  • Honestly, I am the same way no matter who has my kids - even my DH... I just always feel guilty that someone else has my kids.

  • I wish SO understood. Problem is the couples we go out w , their wives don't worry like me. Maybe cuz they have 3.

  • I agree with Sabrina. Even when my DH has our son I worry.

  • You can't control everything- so you just have to get the MIL to check in via text message and let it alone, remember she has had kids- so she knows a thing or two! LOL. Yoiu are probably just fretting over nothing at all! Stop it or you'll never be able to trust your "gut" instict.
