Am I the only one here who hasn't gone out on a date night w/DH since LO was born? Do you find that strange?
If you go out on date nights, who babysits for you? Does the babysitter put LO to bed for you, or do you put your LO to bed first, then go out?
The only family we have here is my SIL, and she doesn't have a car. She's offered to babysit during the daytime, but not at night. Since DS doesn't take a bottle, it seems kind of pointless for her to come during the day on a weekend... In addition, DH would rather spend his weekends w/DS than to go out and have lunch with me but without DS.
I guess it hasn't really bothered us that we haven't gone out on a date night. I also don't see how it would work even if we hire a babysitter? I can't imagine having the babysitter put DS to bed at night when it's not someone he's familiar with? DS's bedtime is 8pm so if we wait until he's asleep before we go out, it'll be really late and I'd rather stay home so I can go to bed early.
