I have been divorced for 3 years and have a new boyfriend of about a year. It seems like I always have a hard time finding someone to watch the kids and it makes it so tough to stay connected to BF and do things. My mom is my go to but that means I'm at the mercy of her schedule. Forget trying to make a date on my time...it has to be if/when she's not busy if I want her services. I guess I'm just bummed because I have been unable to go out with BF for his birthday. I have not found a reliable sitter other than occasional family offers.
How are you guys dating regularly? Where do you find the time and the sitter?
