so, i am a BM of ds19 and ds15 from exh. SO is BD to ss12, 10, and 5. we have ds 9months together.
sometimes, SO and i have a "date night" but we take our 9 month old because we dont have a sitter. he isnt mobile and doesnt need food ordered or anything, he can eat from my plate. SO and i just like to reconnect with just our mutual kid sometimes as well. taking that many kids to eat is expensive and somewhat stressful.
i dont think it really bothers the skids, its not all the time, and they know my older sons dont go either, but ss10 has said that ds 9 months is "lucky cuz he gets to go everywhere" (not in a sour grapes tone)
does anyone think we are doing something wrong? (i dont.)
