  • LOL! Oh well. It would have been really nice if you'd had your romantic time, but I can understand why sleep was appealing. Too bad you couldn't get both. :)

  • Oh yes. My son spends every Saturday at his grandparents so me and my honey can have "alone time" and at first it was great, but now alone time means coming home from work getting really lazy and going to bed early. There might be a movie in there somewhere in there sometimes, and dinner.

  • I'm almost 20 and I feel old lol I feel like me and my fiance are an old married couple. He comes home from work, sits on the couch, watches tv for a little while then goes to bed. We get to go out to eat alone maybe once every couple months but then we come right back home to our year old son. We live with my mom so we can't quite send him off to his grandmas. Our going out to eat alone usually means pizza, dairy queen, or Mcdonalds lol Real romantic I know.

  • I'm 19 with an 8 month old... and actually were still able to find plenty of time to spend time together... but i'd most of the time have my son with me when we go out or just have family time... there's always time for other stuff when he goes to bed... but i understand the every so often doing something sweet thing also =) HOWEVER... I DO FEEL OLD when my bedtime is 930 and my hubby already wants a mini van.. YEAH RIGH haha.. SUV's work just fine
