Yes, I do. If I need a break my ex, mom, brother, or sister will take him.

Not a lot, but some. Recently, a group of friends and I have started a once a month moms/girls night out. We've only done it twice so far, but it's been great. It's just maybe six hours or so on a Friday night, but it's nice to get that time away, have grown up conversations, and not have to worry about keeping an eye on the kids or watching what we say because little ears might overhear. 

Other than that one night a month, my only "me time" is an hour or two after the kids are in bed, and maybe a half an hour to an hour in the morning if I happen to get up before them. We homeschool and I work from home, so we are literally together all the time. lol

 Yes when I go to work and when he goes to visit his father.

But I prefer time with my son. We always have fun!!

All the kids were at their dad's house for Christmas and I went to my mom's. That was wonderful. It won't happen again as the older two refuse to go back.

I get what I can when I can. Last weekend after the girls' game we dropped the kids at houses and had some time to ourselves for a few hours. My youngest is 9 and oldest is 16 so babysitters aren't required.

I pay for an extra sitter every Monday evening so I can do something I like to do.
