How often

Do you go out together?

My MIL watches our 9 yr old and 15 month old twins every other Friday for date night. Once a month we try to go to a concert and twice a year we go on a cruise without kids.

I'm curious how often others go out together?

We don't go out separate very often. Maybe once per year.

We try to go out once a month for date night. But we do have lunch dates a lot. 2-3 times a week. My dh works nights, so he's free for lunch.

About 2 times a month, sometimes 3 times. When we are alone we usually have the weekend to ourselves. We go away alone once a year. Went to cabo the past August for a week. It was great!
Edit; we also meet up for lunch a. Couple times a week

Not very often. We have lunch a few times a month. Its hard to squeeze funds for a sitter and a date night. So we just have lunch while the kids r at school.

We aim for once a month date night. Sometimes it happens sometimes we get 2 date nights.

not very often without the kids. i have a 19 month old and an almost 4 month old. No one wants to baby sit them together. It's a handful I understand. Even Dh doesn't want to take care of both of them alone! Just me!

Oh nice! I can't imagine complete alone time. It's been forever since no kids were in our home. Cabo I bet that was awesome! We're going to the Bahamas in a month for 4 days. Ill miss my babies but I need a break!

I can understand that! Our twin boys are 15 months old. Thank god for my MIL she's amazing with your sons. My mom is nuts so we don't let her watch them.

We usually just do dinner and a movie. Or dinner and a few drinks. You?

Never. Rarely even go out as a family. It's just my daughter & I all the time.
