date nights?

What do you usually do on date night? Who watches the kids while you are out? How often do you plan a date night?

  • DH and I go out every Saturday evening with our friends. My MIL and FIL watch our 5 month old they call it their grandparents time with him (this is their 1st and only grandchild) and love that they get to see him for a few hours every Saturday...once he is older they will do more things like movies and such with him.

  • We only go out about once every 2-3 months and my MIL keeps them (she is an hour away to not to often and not often both kids at once) but we have date night in's once a week. I fed the kids a simple dinner and when DH gets home we order in or make a good meal just for us and watch a movie and sometimes even have a drink after the kids are in bed.

  • Our date nights usally take place at home. I don't know anyone here so I never get a sitter. The one I had PCS'd so I am stuck. We still have a good time though. We watch movies, play bored and video lol... We do this atleast once a week.

  • Date night? What is this "date night" you speak of?

    LOL! Kidding...we get one every once in a while. We go out to eat, the movies, or to a bar to hang out with friends and watch sports (football or UFC). The only ones who watch our kids are my mom or my sisters.

  • we have date night 2 times a year and one of them is my anniversary . My mom (who lives w/ us) watches the kids. We don't leave until they are in bed and normally are back 2 hours later. Normally when we go out we run into a lot of ppl my dh knows so I'm left standing there looking pretty.
