  • we have it when all the kids are in bed. late at night at home is our time together, and once in a blue moon we ask my in laws to babysit. lately we've been feeling more comfortable with some of the teenage girls at church.....we're friends with their parents :) Hope you get some quality time with the hub! xo

  • well....we have couple time after they're sleeping. look at tv together or work in the yard, etc. i haven't left the kids with anyone besides my mil when i was having a new baby so my husband could be there too. i don't live close to my family

  • We don't live anywhere near family, so we either hire babysitters through a service or use friends with kids our kids' ages. My boys are 10 and 6, so I'm a little less paranoid about who watches them now.

  • Basically just when the kids are in bed later at night. I have no problem leaving my kids with my siblings, cousins, or our parents, but we only really do that when we have to, not just to have alone time...although I think it would be fine every once in a while.

  • we try to go out with out the kids about once a month, my friends daughter (17) she watches the kids while we are out. My mom lives 100 miles away, she will watch them, but I don't want to wait that long to spend alone time w/my husband.
