 I don't:(  Nobody will watch him cause I BF and I don't pump.  My breaks consist of going to the bathroom or taking a very quick shower if and when he naps.

I don't. DH is gone until about 6 pm every night and bed time for the girls is 7/7:30. Colin goes to bed around 8. Right now I have all 4 kids all day every day. We just PCS' d here so we don't know anyone here to leave our kids with if we wanted to get out and do something alone. We have friends here from the last time we were stationed here but they work nights. Sometimes DH will take the kids on the weekend in the morning so I can sleep in. He tries to take the girls out so I can get somewhat of a break. As long as Colin takes a nap. Lol. What about you?

This... Except my mom watches him. DH and I have only been on one dinner date without him so far. But we definitely gotta plan another one now that he's older.

I've never been away from Will. I don't want to be. 

My three year old I've left three times: once when I had Will, once when Will and I had to go to the hospital when he had the flu, and once for an hour for a meeting.

Hardly ever! I get mini breaks from my older boys (15,17) to run to the store. My mom makes me nervous because her patience is low & my LO can be very highstrung.

For me lol! that's when it become nap or bedtime NO matter what time of the day it is. This time around it has been really challenging. My first 3 I was married with lots of support and resources.
