My kids are 7,5,3, and 2 months. I have never been away from them at all. They never go anywhere with out me. Before you ask I home school. I do have "friends" and we do playdates about once a month. Even at the park my kids know they need to stick right by me.
People think I am nuts but I think its the only way.
Whats the point of havings kids if you don't want to be near them?
My husband is the same way as soon as he is home we are together as a family.
We don't need date night or "free time".
