Seems like almost never. Just today I asked DH to keep the baby out of my way while I canned cherry jam, and of course, every 5 minutes as I stirred 200+ degree syrup...there was baby up in my business!
Some months are better than others. Ironically, when DH is deployed or at training I get plenty of "me time" because after I put the kids down I can choose to just relax instead of work on uniforms, cook meals, clean up stuff. DH has pet peeves about certain chores, but when he's not here I might let the dishes sit overnight and take a relaxing bath instead, kwim?
I get "me" time a few times/week when my son is in therapy, but that time is usually spent running errands:) When my son is in school, I get more "me" time. But, on the weekends, my husband always makes sure I have a few hours to myself. He's amazing like that:)
Never. lol Every now and then when I am feeling overwhelmed with kids, exercising, planning events (we have cookouts and we have my daughters b-day coming up) and housework, DH will take the kids so I can at least shower alone for a little bit.
Every night after the kids go to bed. :)

I recently started getting respite care, so i get it pretty frequently now :) before that, i tried to do something by myself once or twice a month.
never I have dd with me 24/7 and then dh is always around, the only time im alone is in the shower...
