  • We have friends over for dinner a lot or just go and hang out at each other houses. The other day my friend came over and we made caramel apples. My husband kept an eye on all three of the kids (her two and mine) while we were in the kitchen. We had a GREAT time.

  • I go out maybe once or twice a month, but even that burned me out so I dont really have the urge to go out anymore. Before baby I was a barfly. The scene has changed as have my friendships. SO rarely goes out. We have no one to babysit so we never have a date night. Not realy anywhere we'd like to go, The one place we would go isnt here anymore.

  • DH and I get a date night whenever my parent's come to visit. So maybe once a month.
    I never get a friend's night out, but that's due to all of my friends living too far away.

  • Maybe every other month we manage to get out to see a movie, always a matinee because the old man hates crowds and lines. I don't do the girls' night thing.

  • We are homebodies. We never go anywhere.

  • I had kids because I wanted them. I never wanted to spend time without them, so I never arranged to have time without them. Sometimes I would end up with them somewhere else, but more often because they were doing something.

    Of course, I have keys to the house, so I could go out anytime I wanted to --with them. I preferred 'dating' my whole family.

    We used the Babysitter Budget to hire a mother's helper, who did chores while I got to play with the kids...
