  • When the kids are in school on thursday we go out to eat or rent a movie and watch it. Thursday are his only day off so we make the best of it.

  • We simply take advantage of the little time we do have together. We don't put any pressure on to have "couple time" so It's ok to sit with a mug of coffee in the morning or watch TV or a movie with wine and cheese in the evening after our son goes to sleep. We take joy in the family time we have now, it won't always be available later in life. Whenever we go out anywhere it's considered a date even though our son comes with us.

  • We don't. We have a nine month old. When we have time to ourselves we sleep. It isn't good for our relationship, but it will have to do for now. Good night!

  • I don't really have couple time. Well I guess when my son is asleep we get time alone. But it's been about 5 months since we did anything extra together

  • We're creative and intelligent: so while the child is sleeping, playing happily in the sandbox, or busy doing whatever bizarre things little kids think are fun for 10 minutes, we reconnected.

    When they kids were a LOT older, they'd sleep over at friends' or grandparents' and we'd hang out...

  • Once the kids are asleep we either cuddle and watch a movie or late night show.

  • well if you have any family near ask if they can watch your baby so you can go out with your SO go for a walk or go to dinner or a movie or just stay in rent some movies & some popcorn so you can cuddle & just talk & enjoy each others company or have a nice home cooked meal take it slow play some board games or go to a nice lounge to go dancing or have a nice drink at the bar goodluck mama

  • Whatever it takes. We're pregnant with our 4th, so it's not easy. Sometimes that means putting the kids to bed early, sometimes it means setting the alarm for 4:30 or 5:00am and hanging out in the morning. Other times it's as simple as renting a movie for the kids and letting them watch it while we cook dinner together. And every great once in awhile we scrape up the money for a sitter and go out on a real date. But that's pretty rare.
