Do you ever give your kid/s TV- or movie-time so you and your husband/SO can have some alone time?

My Husband and I do..but Our Son is so well-behaved and independent that He can be trusted to be alone in the living room while my sexy Man and I run off to Our bedroom for a bit. In Husband and I gave Our Son movie-time just over an hour ago and took FULL advantage. Gotta love Afternoon Delight, hehe! ;D

  • When my son was little. Yes we would do that.

    My son had been taught his entire life that "mom & dad need their private/together time" that is just for the 2 of us alone.

  • We wait until DD goes to bed. She just doesn't sit still long enough to get away for a bit.

  • @hibbingmom - Oh, the living room is in the front of Our house and Our bedroom is in the back..the rooms are seperated by a long hallway and another bedroom. lol. I've learned to be quieter since having my Son..and to grab a pillow if I can't - which is often. lol.

  • Yeah but we call it "nap time" :)

    Answer by jessicarae787 at 4:14 PM on Jan. 17, 2011

  • Son doesn't take naps anymore - He is 3 1/2 and stopped napping soon after He turned 3. And since my Husband works nights, We do what We gotta do! =]
