How often do you get a date night?

We are lucky if we get one every other month when grandma asks to have the kids overnight. Otherwise, we only have someone watch the kids when our work schedules overlap.

  • Yeah, we're about the same as you. It's been awhile. Usually it's about once every couple of months, but the past few it hasn't happened, at least not without our son in tow.

  • We go once a month, the daycare where we live has a special opening every month on a Sat. night.

  • Every night is date night at our house! You don't have to go somewhere to have a date. Even when all our children were home, we didn't have the money to go out anywhere or to afford a babysitter, and our folks didn't live anywhere close to us. But we still had lots and lots of dates. You just have to be very creative!

  • I should be making you feel better. I never get a date night the only night my husband and I get is our anniversary once a year:)

  • usually once a week we get a kid free night because of one of the grandmas wanting some grandparent time. We don't always go out on a date sometimes we just like to stay in.

  • It varies, but we probably get a date night (just us) once a month on average. Sometimes we get someone to watch him a little more often if we want to get together with friends who don't have kids, otherwise we mostly go places where we can take him with us. It used to be more often than monthly, but now my brother has twin babies, so my mom helps them out a lot too. They still like to have my son spend the night once of month if it works out for everyone's schedules, and sometimes they watch him for a few hours for us to do something together even if he doesn't spend the night.
